I get told by people a lot that they are coming to my place if shit hits the fan. My reply is usually along the lines of “nope”, “hell naw you ain’t”, and laughing. I don’t really hide being a prepper, but I also don’t advertise it. Loose lips sink ships after all.
If you were to come to me and say, “Hey Ralph, you mind if I come over if something happens?”
I’ll ask, “What are you bringing?”
“Oh you know, the usual…. Guns, ammo, medical supplies, food, and water.”
Well by golly! That door just magically came unbolted and opened on its own!
My point is, being a prepper, you should not enable freeloaders. They’ve had their chance to prep and failed. Outside of your good conscience, what makes them worthy to reap the benefits of your hard work?
Now if they come looking to help out and work that is different. I’m sure anyone could use a bit of free labor. “Wash those dishes”, “skin that game”, and “split some firewood” are good examples even the slightly skilled can do for barter when it comes to shelter and a full belly.
Things to think about.
