The Prepping Issue

  • Terms: Prepping, Survivalism, Bushcraft, Herbalist, Homesteading, Lost Ways of Living
  • Types of Preppers:  
  • CDC and FEMA Emergency Prep Types aka “Straights”, Self Professed Practical Preppers- generally normal types who for some reason have the preparedness mindset.  Some of these people might come from families with strong ancestral memories of times like The Great Depression or other adversity, and generally do not present as being “Preppers” but more of a pragmatic, well stocked household. 
  • Full On Preppers- These are your Red Greens and Dale Gribbles of the world.  This type of prepper is a little more upfront about their lifestyle, and may selectively share tips or theories with neighbors they trust, as they seek to feel out who their SHTF community members will be.  Red and Dale still live in the normal suburban neighborhood.  They mow their lawns, and they have a portable generator, maybe even a tent trailer or some other modest but always at the ready Bug Out vehicle parked in the driveway. They are an Eagle Scout, or some member of their family was- and they will rely on this very special set of skills to see them through any foreseeable catastrophe.   
  • Scrooge Mc Duck precious metals hoarder
  • Bushcrafter- can camp forever
  • Hoarder- Well stocked but immobile, sometimes weird
  • Gardener/Hippie Type- Some skills, often lacking in Defense
  • Tactical Prepper- Possibly an effective ally or a dangerous Raider in the Making
  • The Accidental Prepper- CDC Type Power Outage Emergency Preppers
