All good points, we have about a 1000 underpopulated islands here and I have enough stores to sail half way around the world, I have charts from here to Patagonia both Atlantic and Pacific and way points of every place on the planet, i sail engine-less so fuel isn't much of a concern. I'm not expecting the world to end but stuff happens. I was in a situation where I saw an entire community fun out of food in less than 2 days so I kinda know how fast stuff happens. For me I do the best I can but have zero paranoia. PS I'm not prepping, I have been living off grid for 4 years or 95% so its a small transition
This problem with peppers is if there was a SHTF 90% of them would soon realize how few true skills they have.
