I actually do have canned chicken, canned turkey breast, and canned tuna. I have one can of jalapeno spam.

I watch out for my neighbors because there is a single old lady on either side of me. There is a single mom with a handicapped child across the street. A friend a few houses away is also a gun collector and reloader like me. We would all band together in an emergency.

[QUOTE="Rick1967"]I don't get people like that either. I keep ready for disaster. But not stupid stuff. We have enough food to go a month without shopping if we had to. I have a generator with a full tank of gas and an extra 5 gallon can. The news said that it is supposed to snow from 5 to 10 inches tonight. So we went and got a couple extra propane bottles for the indoor heater. The little bottles like a camp stove uses. I put the charger on the camper batteries and put my power tool batteries on the charger in case I need to use my 18 volt flashlight. We made sure we have 20 gallons of bottled water. That is how I prep. I think about the things that might actually happen. I have had power outages before. Roads have been impassable before. Not really that worried about zombies though. Of course I do have plenty of ammo. But that is because I am a reloader.[/QUOTE

They are so prepared for things that are very unlikely while they arent really ready for something realistic to happen.

I can survive anything with a supply of chili [no beans] and sweet tea.

We have several cans of chili in the pantry. But if that were all I ate for a few days I am sure no one would want to hang out with me.

Lot of this "these preppers prepare for only 1 event' perception is dirven by doomsday prepper show.
but that show it seems it kinda makes people choose one thing so they can talk about that and then say how its unlikely.

And that misses the point.
Every individual thing happening is unlikely but combined the likelihood becomes pretty high

Rick1967, Didn't you know canned chili was invented by the Liberal Democrats to destroy American morals?? We make our chili out of prime Elk meat in a cast iron cooking pot.
This seems to work we have very few Democrats and we know who they are.

I have no elk to make chili. I have hunted elk thee times. Every time I have an elk tag I see a crap load of deer and a bunch of other hunters but no elk.
