As I look over my life of prepping, I find it a solitary lot. Forums like these help, but it is not something I share with anybody other than my wife and father.
As many of you know we lead double lives. We go to work or church and are involved in our communities.... and then we come home and prep.
Much of my free time outside of the above activities is spent in planning my preps, stockpiling my preps, searching for preps, reworking my preps.... I cannot go to a grocery store, Walmart or Marshalls without keeping a keen eye out for something to add to my preps... and I often leave these stores with that little extra item that caught my preppers eye.
But these little victories are mine alone. I cannot call my friends and boast of the great idea I had for my prepping, the great item I found, the tidbit of survival info I garnered ..... They would likely humor me at best, think me mad at worst.
So here I lament my lack of a Prepper friend. A stalwart buddy to share in my lifestyle choice. Someone to revel in my prepper victories and commiserate with me on the state of our crumbling world. To raise a glass with me after a day at the range or supply me with a new perspective on a problem......
I know you are out there and I am sure we will be great comrades one day. I just wish you would hurry up and find me.... I have so much to share with you.
