So, I'm a noob prepper, but I do know a LOT about S hitting the F and the importance of being ready. My wife, who is a conservative Kansas girl, is like 99 percent of everyone....has never contemplated the world outside her little bubble or contemplated the grim possibilities, let alone contemplated having a plan in place. So, when I recently embarked upon my prepper voyage, she admitted that I have good sensibilities, but still eyes me warily and thinks I'm looney. I'm not hurt by it, but I would sure like her to be involved on some level. I understand why we are viewed by the world as nuts....because that's how people are conditioned by the world in which we live--a world of convenience and insulation from all the bad things. But it baffles me that we're the crazy ones. By that logic, why don't they consider it looneytoons to purchase home, life, and car insurance? Anyways, I just wondered what you all face on the homefront. Are you going it alone on behalf of your loved ones and getting the weird eyeball when the UPS guy drops off another box of mylar bags and o2 absorbers? Or have you been able to get your SO to jump in with you to some extent? Like I said, it doesn't offend my sensibilities, but it just doesn't seem like something I really want to do by myself. This is my first post and I am glad to be here.
