I don't know about you all but I personally think there are some scary times just around the corner and so we should all be prepping everything we can. Food, water, medicine, fuel, firewood if you're in Europe, you name it and you should be prepping for a shortage.

Those who got it wrong, for whatever reason, may feel defensive and retrench into a position that doesn’t accord with the facts.

Same here. The supermarket shortages are worrying. Lots of empty spaces and here we also have limits on how much we can buy. In the last two years we've had them on all sorts of items like flour and all baking products, cat food, long life milk and we still have them on toilet roll. At the moment there is no kitchen roll (paper towels on a roll) here in NZ. I haven't been able to buy any for a month. We're limited to buying two items per visit. But there's nothing to stop you going through the checkout, dumping your shopping in the car and then going back in again to buy another two if you want to.

It's spring here and i've extended our vegetable garden. I'm growing as much as I can, just in case. We've dug up our lawn and put it down to potatoes.

We have been trying to prep but it is becoming to expensive to get massive amounts of preps for most of my friends who finally get it. Guns are finally ready to go as the fall harvest is coming in.  We have plenty of meat and some veggies.  We are going to do well if our solar generator is as advertised. We are going to move into the bunker with Jill and Becky and the families.  Going to be rough winter.
