I live with my parents, they are getting older and both have retired. We split our house mortgage, and i pretty much do my own things. However, I am trying to get them on board with being prepared and stocking up on supplies. They pretty much scoff at having more than one or 2 items on hand. Where i have at least 3 of something, and replace consumables when i get down to two. Or if something is on sale, I'll buy the limit and keep plenty of stuffs on-hand. My question is this, how can i get them on board and prepare for the eventual SHTF?? We lived through the tornados of April 27, 2011 that came thru our area. I had enough stuff stashed and made our lives alot easier for those 2 weeks after. I thought they would see the necessity of it after that, but no such luck.
