Beware: 17 Types of Preppers You Should Avoid
« on: August 01, 2018, 06:08:04 PM »
Not sure I agree! LOL

I am or have been about 5 kinds of these 17 types. How about you?

Maybe they're trying to say if you only focus on one aspect at the detriment of all the others, that's bad.

Are you any if these people? I guess we were all at least newbies at one time or other.

What a terrible bit of clickbait.

At least it was all on one page LOL.

If had been one of those click to continue things, I wouldn't have added it.

I think "gun enthusiast" is a bad word to use disparagingly. I guess there are those who think that's all prepping is. But I think you can have a hobby/avocation that extends beyond your prepping.

I don't know that I was every completely a newbie. I think I started at accidental, being second generation.

I'm a "bugout homesteader" LOL. I don't know if that's doubly bad, or if they cancel out. Actually, that's just plan A. They go to about plan G.

There are a couple good ones to make you think - the commando, weakminded, pay to play, etc. So it's not a total loss.

The only thing I see missing is:  The Medicated Prepper.

Whether alcohol, illegal drugs or prescription meds that can't be stockpiled for long term or replaced with herbal substitutes, when the Medicated Prepper runs out, you're stuck.  I'm talking about mood altering/controlling drugs.   Most of us older folks are taking BP or statins, we'll just die a little sooner, we won't go crazy and risk the whole group, too.

I know it sounds harsh but starting out with one dependent on those 'stabilizing' drugs that can't be herbally supplemented is dangerous.

Well it has been nice meeting you all.  But as the article said,  I should say good by.  Like Starlady said, they covered about all the bases.  There is no one left!  Oh well, that's life for you.

I think you misread there, buddy...…...THOSE are the ones we say goodbye to.

I agree with Lilburner, I think they are pointing out those that focus mainly on ONE thing.  I've met you, you aren't any of THOSE.   And if we ever had any, they've left out of pure boredom because we discuss just about everything prepping here.

Like most, I'm a combo of things...…….and darned proud of it - you should be, too!

I don’t get the relevance. I thought this was a camping enthusiast forum.

I like to poke a little fun once in a while.  Of course my humor is a little dry....
