Shut up already

I was volunteering at someone's garden yesterday and the topic turned to the tornadoes that just tore through AL and GA.  One of the other volunteers was almost in the monster storm's path.  I asked if they had a basement.  When she said no, the homeowner where we were piped up that they had a basement, but her neighbor had a whole bomb shelter with food ("You know, that kind that lasts forever.") and water and anything you could need.  She pointed out the house and told 3 people she's met once before of a goldmine.  She added in that if anything ever happens, they're going to the neighbor's house to beg for food.

It was a great reminder for someone like me that likes to babble.  Shut up already.

I couldn't agree more!!! I have stopped encouraging friends and family to prep since it insinuates that I do. Someone asked me recently if I still did and I told them we just didn't have time for it, but I still felt it was a good idea. I myself have had some pretty egregious violations in OPSEC trying to encourage people that I care about that prepping is important. I recently read that there are only 3 million preppers in the US. The other 315 million are not. The odds are not in our favor.  OPSEC is essential for safety of you and your immediate family.

Recently I was talking to a widow I know.  She told me her late husband had 5 old pick up trucks.  She sold 4 and kept 1.  She had the oldest truck fixed up & painted.  She said " It doesn't have a computer and may run when the rest are broke".  She is the one that is planning to build an off grid cabin soon.  I believe we have another prepper in the neighborhood.

I'm pretty serious about OPSEC. I go so far as to use PO Box for my ham license.

When people around me ask if I'm a prepper, I tell them "Prepping for a cost-free retirement".

i've been giving a lot of serious thought about a PO box lately. My biggest debate is between an actual Postal PO box, or going with something at one of the "Box Stores" so I could still have packages sent there. Only downside to that is closest one is up in Calhoun, so about 8-10 miles.
