    I have a car listed for sale best offer cash and trade. How do explain to the potential buyers when they call what I will except as trade without advertising to the world that I have preps and without a listing everything? I know that if it was one of you I could just say preps when asked what I will trade for and you will understand what I am talking about but the dependents of the world will not. So how do I say preps without saying preps?

    sell it out right.
    "guns ammunition or other sporting goods"
    "swap meet items like:
    "I sell military surplus gear on e-bay.",
    "I'm moving to the country need a wheel barrow and garden tools."
    "starting a kids summer outdoor program"

    and need tents sleeping bags gardening equipment.
    accept food or outdoor items.going to help out a local shelter
    renewable energy equipment,i.e.solar panels,water filters

    Tough one anybody trading is gonna know what they gave you,
    "storable foods for my hunting cabin..."
    slipping in the the story will help cover some; it gives you a reason besides
    "I'm an end of the world nutter and I want your extra food and guns because you're all gonna die anyway. :
    need a wood stove for my cabin...
    church(Greek Orthodox)" Blessed sisters of the TEOTWAKI"
    Just some cover ideas.

    Why give any reason?

    "Car for sale or trade - prefer trade!"

    Then weed out the garbage offers.
