A prepper friend of mine finally came over to my house for a visit. He said it’s such a relief to talk to someone who doesn’t think he’s crazy. The day was beautiful. We sat out on the deck, drinking coffee and swapping tales. I think we each learned a few things from each other.
I’m one of only a handful of people who know his bug out location. Circumstances have him staying in town right now, but it not a good place to weather trouble. One of the things we discussed was different ways of staying in touch. When the phones and the Internet go down, some other form of communication will be needed.
Another nice thing about having a prepper visit is the gifts they bring: canned goods, rice, seeds and ammo. It was a nice gesture; one only another prepper can appreciate.
