    Welcome.

    Our mission is to help educate. No question is dumb even if we've heard it 100 times.

    Maybe you could talk about how you feel better than most?

    The reason for my better than most comment is because I have a great wife, awesome kids, and also the fact that i know that what precautions we have taken is far more than the majority.

    Funny thing is 2 generations ago nearly everyone prepped if they were able as a way of life.

    Funny you guys are saying that, my mother made fun of us for prepping, her parents being from the great depression era were certainly preppers. She has told me that she had to do that all her childhood and nothing ever happened. I have tried to tell her that times are a little different now.

    where bouts in central Texas?

    Getting sheeple family members to become like minded can be like pulling teeth.
    Your approach needs to needs to be subtle at first.
    I start by planting little seeds of thought.The seeds are little stories about so,and so who lost their job,or got injured,spent their savings,and almost ended up on the street before they could get any public assistance.
    This kind of thing(both)happened to me this past year,and even with 4mo worth of preps,my savings,family help,selling my firearms,and everything else of value,the pantry was empty,and the bank account/wallet/pockets empty before the first assistance check arrived.
    Now many months later I still havnt recovered financially.
    This kind of SHTF scenario can happen to anyone,at any time.
    Oh by the way,welcome aboard!
