22 More Signs You Might be a Prepper

I’m a prepper.  I previously posted, First 10 Signs You Might Be a Prepper. I’m at it again with 22 more signs you might be a prepper.

“Prepper” sounds like such a harsh word. It took me many years to come out of the pantry and admit I was a prepper. Coming out of the pantry helped me find tons of people with similar interests. It’s been very liberating.

Preppers look at the world differently than other people. This unique outlook lends itself to plenty of humor. Yes, people point the finger of ridicule at us now-and-then, but that doesn’t mean we can’t smile at ourselves, too. I hope you share a smile or a laugh.

  1. Maybe we are preppers. I never thought about it much but most folks around here have at least 2 months worth of food in their houses. Most of it what they grew or hunted them selves.

    1. That’s pretty encouraging. I’m always amazed at the people I consider to be sensible that don’t see the point in having a few extra days worth of food.
