You know the "society" actually has something with this prepardness thing. They just don't have a clue on what to tell people to do or buy. I do NOT want to come off like a know it all, (I'm far from that....I'm still learning) but would anyone be interested in a thread that does NOT mention firearms (IMHO they are important, but to much of a hot-button topic) on prepardness? If so, what forum should it be in? I might be able to help someone who wants to prepare, with places to buy the right stuff cheap and of high quality. But I really do not want to again have to defend myself for being a "paranoid survivalist." After all, we do have feelings.
Keep in mind that even FEMA is saying you should have supplies on hand.
