Today my son and I met with an older couple to bid some work to be done on their home. (Not that I'm a spring chicken) We got to talking about food storage, he and his wife mentioned that they buy their food in bulk. They also mentioned that they do a lot of canning. At that point he said sternly " We are not preppers". I smiled to myself thinking yes you are. We got to talking about canning. I told them that my wife also cans. I then mentioned that I could remember when I was young, everyones grandparents canned. Quite a few of our parents canned also. It was considered normal then. I also mentioned that there is more than food issues that people need to prep for. Also protecting what one has. He then mentioned lightheartedly about firearms, but promptly back peddled, which at that point I knew they were very well prepped. We left our meeting, and discussed how unprepared we are. We go to the store several times a week buying items that we should have already stored up. My son being a little more prepped than I am, should have been born 100 yrs ago. Times have changed. Seems like now people are more demonized for prepping, which not so many years ago it was the norm. What are your thoughts?
