    Good morning all,

    Per ...

    Article leads off by mentioning the Preppers Network.

    I've posted some articles at Forum on NYC Prepper Jason Charles.

    A former Obama advisor, John Ramey, has a website "The Prepared" (no hyperlink provided).

    "space constraints" is going from 3 days of food supplies to 14 ?! Live in Hong Kong or the Netherlands and see how "space" is created.

    Loved reading "official ...... self-appointed experts" !

    Unfortunately for Professor Zill, besides fast and slow learners, we also have a component of lazy socialists

    I'm always a bit suspicious of anything that labels itself "mens health", and there are no "pandemic" preppers just preppers, OR if there are they are a one hit wonder, maybe Americans would call them " a one trick pony" or something similar.

    Good morning Lonewolf,

    Apology for me not knowing how to work the website. Above post popped up by forces unknown to me. If I can find my scribbled notes, will finish posting after the above Professor Zill line.

    Typically, magazine and websites are for selling advertising to niche audiences, whether men's health, gardening supplies or clothes.

    Here, in Hurricane Alley, we do have One Pony Preppers - only get ready for hurricanes. As big and bad as hurricanes are, many of the "victims" really shouldn't be living in Hurricane Alley - especially living alone and dependent on daily care for food and weekly medical appointments. The biggest dangers here are driving and those who do not maintain decent diets for their health.

    Good morning all,

    Following are my scribbled notes re above article.

    My notes follow the Professor Zill line above:

    ......

    The lazy socialists are also known as the "Call 9-1-1 crowd".

    Chris Thon, a survivalist educator, presents something very valid: "... insurance and savings ... versions of prepping".

    Prof Zill: Please do some research on the meaning of word "completely". Please post your POW studies or at least references to them. Read up on what insurance companies teach and require of popicy holders who are holders of the company's Kidnapping and Hostage insurance policies. Prof Zill, you might learn that the world is vast. Some POWs successfully handled their situations. So, too, some kidnapped by terrorists.

    I've lifted heavy jerrycans filled with gasoline. It was not for bicep development. It was for survival.

    End of my notes from yesterday.

    Problem I have with these online experts is that many are trying to sell you something like a training course or product placement or simply earning from Youtube.

    I prefer the small videos from individuals talking about something they actually know about, some specific skill etc.
