PREPPER: 99 Relatable Things That Only Preppers Will Understand
PREPPER: 99 Relatable Things That Only Preppers Will Understand LATEST FROM THE PREPPER WORLD...
Prepping isn’t all about whiling away your hours in a bunker, reloading ammo. It’s about the everyday things we do and the differences in our mindsets from non-preppers, and these are things that only real preppers will understand.
Preppers know these are actually signs of sanity, but we get used to being misunderstood by the unprepared and the mainstream media, who all seem to think that we’re crazy. Sometimes it’s fun to have a good laugh about their misconceptions of what we actually do.
You might be a prepper if these signs relate to you.

Many of the following signs will be so relatable that they’ll probably give you a warm glow. Feel the prepper solidarity!
Pantries are so mainstream…you have food stashed in strange places in every room of the house. You have enough toilet paper to get through a year of uncomfortable digestive upsets…occurring with 6 people simultaneously Speaking of which, you possess at least 3 different ways to use the bathroom, only one of which is an actual bathroom. Your kids know what OPSEC means…at the age of 4. You have topographical maps of your area…plural. When you’re forced to interact with “the others” you feel like you are awkwardly censoring your true opinions You think nothing of treating an injury or illness yourself because “ what if there was no doctor? “ Paintball and laser tag are no longer just a fun way to spend an afternoon …they are tactical training . You’ve purchased duct tape in bulk . With every major purchase, you contemplate going for the off-grid version. You have more manual tools than power tools. You’ve washed entire loads of laundry by hand for either necessity or practice. (And not just your dainties…we’re talking about jeans and stuff!) Your kids are not afraid of guns…or fingers pointed like guns…or pastries in the shape of guns…or drawings of guns. When house-hunting you look for multiple heat and water sources. You store food in buckets…lots of buckets…like, maybe even a whole room full of buckets. You garden with a determination and time commitment normally reserved for endurance athletes training for an Ironman triathlon. If you don’t have a water source on your property, you have put in miles of footwork searching for one nearby, and have mapped multiple discreet routes to and from the source, and figured out how to haul the water back to your house on each route. Your first instinct when hearing about some event on the mainstream news is skepticism. (False flag event, anyone?) You read articles about multiple ways to use white vinegar and nod your head throughout. You believe that FEMA camps are real and that you are most likely on “The List”. Instead of CNN, you have alternative news sites bookmarked in your favorites on your computer. You have enough coffee/tea/favorite-caffeinated-item-of-choice to last you through 3 apocalypses. You could outfit a small-town pharmacy with all of the over-the-counter medications you have stashed away. You have an instinctive mistrust of anyone working for the government. You could sink a ship with the weight of your stored ammo. In fact, you put it in the basement when you became concerned about your floorboards. Looking for a fun weekend outing with the kids? Forget amusement parks – the shooting range is where it’s at. When the power goes out, you calmly light the candles and proceed with whatever you had been dong previously. A longer-term power outage is called “practice”. If a like-minded person comes over to your house, they’ll realize you are “one of them” by seeing your reading material. Other folks won’t even notice. The FBI might call your copy of The Prepper’s Blueprint and your A. American fiction “subversive literature”. Your children carry a modified bug-out kit in their school backpacks . You can and dehydrate food with the single-minded fervor of an Amish grandmother facing a 7-year drought. Calling 911 is not part of your home security plan. You spend your days off digging an underground bunker in your backyard. You have more than a thousand cheapo lighters that you purchased in bulk, stashed away in the back of your linen closet…and you don’t even smoke. You eat a lot of survival food now, so there is no ‘system shock’ when you are forced to eat only the items you have stocked (or that you GROW – hint hint). You stock alcohol in mass quantities so you can comfortably numb after the SHTF. You stock alcohol in mass quantities – and you don’t even drink. (Barter, baby!) You know what? Forget stocking alcohol. You have your own still . You’ll make alcohol. You have enough salt to create another Dead Sea. You don’t move – you strategically relocate . You purchased 50 of these little EDC multitaskers already for stocking stuffers for your friends/family/workmates/neighbor/random stranger. Speaking of Christmas, you gave Conflicted to everyone last year. When your friends ask about your favorite authors, instead of Hemingway, Tolkien, or Kerouac, you get a blank stare when you tell them it’s John ‘Lofty’ Wiseman . You know exactly how many Mountain House buckets it takes to make a base for a single bed. You don’t stock up on milk. You get an actual cow. Your family doesn’t dare take something from the food stockpile without marking it off the list. Your kids know how to don a gas mask in 30 seconds. Everyone in your survival group carries the same firearm so that ammo is standardized. You have non-electric versions of appliances like wheat grinders , washing machines , and coffee makers . You yell at the TV every time a commercial for Doomsday Preppers comes on. Oh. Wait. You don’t have a TV. But if you did, you’d yell, because you know how positively ridiculous and unrealistic that show is. Your family is no longer surprised when you announce, “Hey, we’re going to learn how to make (insert anything here)!” You have more how-to books stored on hard-drives than most public libraries have on the bookshelves. Your children have a plan in case they need to bug out from school . Alternatively, you homeschool and bugging out is part of the curriculum. You have more than three ways to cook dinner if the power goes out: a woodstove, a barbecue, a sun oven , a fire-pit, and/or a volcano stove . First Blood and Red Dawn are basic training films for your family. You have long since accepted the idea that if you’re not on someone’s list, you’re probably not doing it right. Your 7-year-old knows Morse code. You’re secretly disappointed when the electricity comes back on after only a few minutes. You know more ways to make a homemade knife than the entire population of your local prison combined. You don’t just rotate food, you rotate ammo. You know the distance from your door to your front gate is precisely 207 yards. Moving to a new house is no longer “moving”, but “ strategic relocation “. You have mapped out at least 3 different routes by car and 2 different routes on foot to get to your bug-out location. You know the difference between “ Tyvek ” and “ Tychem ” suits, and in which instance they should be used. Ditto the finer points of N-95 vs. N-100 masks. You watch The Walking Dead in order to critique their survival tactics. (And you were secretly delighted to see Beth building a fire in a Dakota pit.) Speaking of fire, you can start one in at least 3 different ways, and you always carry a lighter, a fresnel lens , and a magnesium firestarter . You have two (or more) of everything important, well, because “one is none.” You have a decoy food supply. Your kids think it’s a fun game to see who can find the most potential weapons in a room. Even your dog has a bug out bag – which she carries herself. You have elected NOT to purchase greater armament because you plan on upgrading with your future assailant’s weaponry. Your EDC includes a knife, firearm w/extra mag, flashlight, mylar blanket, Chapstick, and an ounce of silver — and that’s just for when you’re walking the dog. The trunk of your car has enough supplies to carry the family through an entire week during a major blizzard. One criterion for your new winter coat is that it fits over your body armor. Your neighbors separate their compost for you into a) chicken food b) garden food and c) other You scour travel size aisles because they fit better in bug-out bags and they make great barter items. You check out the garden center and pest control section for potential weapons. Your subscribed channels for YouTube and bookmarks now contain more prepper and alternative media sites than cute animal sites. Christmas and birthday gifts have a prepper theme . You actually know what the letters “EMP” stand for. Every time there is a small household “disaster” like a power outage or local water “boil order” you just grab your emergency supplies and remind dubious family members. “See, told you it pays to be prepared.” Your freeze-dried food has a longer expiration date than you do. You know how to make bows out of skis and arrows out of garden bamboo . You have (or are seriously considering, buying) an old armored personnel carrier to turn into your RV. You know that Falling Skies has better idea for post-apocalyptic survival than The Walking Dead or Z Nation but you still watch them all just in case. Your friend asks “Do you have enough bullets?” then you both laugh and laugh because you know you can never have enough. You changed your home page from MSN (or any other propaganda media) to Drudge Report or SHTFplan. You have no problem knocking on strangers’ doors to ask for fruit tree cuttings. You have vacuum packed underwear in a plastic tub stashed somewhere in your house. You just might have more medical supplies than the local ER. The Co-op and Costco recognize you but pretend not to. They know better than to ask questions about your purchases. If you’re a man you are no longer embarrassed to buy tampons and sanitary napkins because they make great bandages. If you’re a woman you know you don’t need to buy tampons or sanitary napkins because so many other options exist . You actually own a toilet seat that fits on a bucket . You have enough wood cut and stacked to form a barricade around your whole property. Admit it. Every time the power goes out, you go see if your car starts so you can get the jump on hunkering down or buying out the store with case in the event that this one is actually an EMP. You have considered filtering water with a coffee filter or a t-shirt.
7 Tips On Writing An Emergency Preparedness Plan Every family needs to be prepared for emergency situations. You never know what can happen and how that situation might affect your family. There could be a fire, an earthquake, a flood or any other kind of natural or societal disaster can happen – it’s best to be prepared for them all. That is the best way to protect your family. Writing An Emergency Preparedness Plan , you need to account for all of your family members, any family member with special needs, your children’s needs, pets etc. Have a sound financial plan as well – set out cash funds just in case. Prepare for anything that’s possible in your area but also for unexpected events.
Here is a list of tips on creating an emergency preparedness plan:
State what the roles of each family member are In case of an emergency, each family member needs to know what to do. You can’t lose precious time on organization when an emergency happens and this is why you need to organize everything in advance. Every family member should know where to go. Plan for your kids being in school and let them know where you want them to go if an emergency strikes then. Also, plan for you not being at home in those situations and figure out where to go, what to do and what’s the fastest way to get to your supplies.
You can also do occasional run-throughs of who does what in each situation to make sure that your plan runs safely, smoothly and effectively.
Create emergency kits Emergency kits are a good way to get all you need at once. You can purchase them, already made in many stores but you can also create your own. No matter what you decide, make sure that there is enough water and food for at least three days, that there is a first aid kit and some tools of protection as well. “Keep them handy at all times – you can put one in your car, keep one at work if possible, a couple in your basement or somewhere in your house and you could also make sure that your children have mini-kits with them at all times”, – explains Johnnie Miller, a Safety Manager at Ukwritings .
Practice your plan Once you are done creating your plan, it’s a good idea to practice it. That’s the only way to memorize it perfectly. Run these plans in different situations – at home, do run-throughs of what happens if you are not at home, study the roads to see which can take you home faster. Teach your family members how to use some of the essential tools and how to defend themselves. Show them how to handle certain objects or how to drive if they are old enough.
Make a list of necessary supplies As certain emergencies strike, you will likely not have time to go to the store and purchase everything that you need. Instead, make a list of all the things you’ll need and slowly, as you have available funds, purchase those items. Update this list frequently – there is no way you can think of everything that you’ll need on your first try. Plan for at least three days or longer.
This list should be easy to read and check off, so you should probably use formatting tools like StateOfWriting or Boom Essays to make it as comprehensible as possible. Don’t put anything that isn’t crucial on this list – keep in mind that you’ll have to carry these things yourself, so anything that’s not essential isn’t welcome.
Make a communication strategy Communication strategy is just as important as the rest of your plan. You never know what can happen and that’s why you need to organize your family and let them know how to communicate in case of emergency. Create a sheet of phone numbers each family member should know and call in case that they are alone and separated from the rest. Make sure that everyone has a phone, coins or prepaid cards if they need to reach you. Establish an ICE name and number and make sure that everyone in your family has it.
Make an evacuation strategy Discuss as a family where you could go in case of an emergency. State who is in charge of what – shutting off utilities, taking care of pets, taking emergency supplies, driving etc. Make separate plans for each situation.
Stay informed Best way to be prepared is to be informed. “Do some research on what is a possibility based on your area’s history and prepare for that. Stay informed on current events that might affect you on sites that give this sort of information, watch news, weather reports, read newspapers etc”, – says Earlene Boone, a Safety writer at Essayroo and Academ Advisor .
It’s better to be prepared that sorry when a disaster happens. Having a solid plan ensures that all of your family members will be safe and taken care of in case of an emergency.
Making Emergency Repairs on Your Home
Any disaster carries with it the potential for causing damage to your home. While the damage isn’t always critical enough to require abandoning your home, many people do so anyway, more because they are not sure what to do about the damage, than anything else. But your home is your shelter, as well as holding pretty much all you own. So if you can avoid abandoning it, especially in a crisis situation, you’ll be better off.
Recently, I wrote an article on home repair materials you should stockpile for this very reason. With a few basic materials, you can deal with most storm caused damage to your home, allowing you to occupy it until more permanent repairs can be made by a competent contractor.
Emergency repairs are not the same thing as fully repairing your home. We’re not concerned with cosmetics here. That will come later, when you are able to hire someone to do more complete repairs. At this point, all we’re concerned about is making it safe to use your home as a survival shelter.
There are two keys you are looking for here. The first is to make sure your home is safe to stay in. If you have a natural gas leak, your home isn’t safe. Nor is it safe if you have electrical wires sparking. But a hole in your roof, caused by a tree branch breaking off and crashing down upon it, that isn’t necessarily dangerous. The tree branch and your home are probably stable, so you don’t need to worry about it falling apart.
The second concern is to “dry in” your home. This is a term contractors use for new construction. When they have the outer walls and roof skinned over and covered with a waterproof coating, the house is considered to be at this point. Rain and wind can’t get into the home, accounting for a lot of what shelter is supposed to do.
How is Your Home Constructed? Most American homes are made of wood construction, regardless of what the outside of the home is covered with. Even brick homes are still wood construction, with the brick wall being built outside of the wood one.
This diagram shows us the basic framing of home construction. If we start from the bottom, we can see floor joists running diagonally from lower left to upper right. These provide the structure for the floor and are usually made of 2”x 12” boards. We see another layer of those for the second floor and a final layer for the attic. In the upper two cases, the floor joists are held up by the wall framing. This is made of 2”x 4” framing and is shown in the diagram by the vertical lines. The roof framework is made of 2”x 6” joists, set at an angle to allow water to run off.
The floors and roof of this home are covered with sheets of plywood or pressboard. Three-quarter inch thick sheets are used for the floor and ½” thick sheets for the roof. The walls are covered with sheathing, which consists of ½” thick plyood in the corners and ½” thick Styrofoam for the rest of the wall.
Pretty much everything else on the home’s structure is cosmetic, whether we’re talking about brick or siding on the outside or drywall on the inside. While each of those cosmetic parts has a purpose, they are not part of the structure. For repair purposes, our first priority is the structure.
Emergency Roof Repairs The main thing you want to accomplish in repairing your roof is to keep rain from falling through. We’re going to do that by putting a tarp over the roof. But before doing that, we need to make sure that the roof is structurally sound. To do that, look at the damage that has been created. If there is a hole in the roof, then go in the attic and look for any of the rafters that are damaged.
Even if you can’t replace damaged rafters (perhaps because a branch is in the way), you can strengthen them. All you have to do is to attach 2”x 4”s to the sides of the existing rafters, nailing them together with 16d (penny) nails or 3” drywall screws.
Once the structure is intact, the next thing to look at is if there are any holes which need to be covered over. While you can just cover them with a tarp, your repair will last longer if you cover the hole with a piece of ½” thick plywood first. Just nail through the plywood and existing roofing shingles. You can use any nails longer than 1-1/4” for this.
Finally, dry in the roof by covering it with a tarp. It is essential that the tarp go at least to the peak of the roof and a little beyond. Otherwise, water could run down the roof and under the tarp. But if it goes over the peak, there is no way for water to enter.
Like the plywood, the tarp should be nailed to the existing roof. However, the wind will cause the nail heads to pull through the tarp, if you don’t use some sort of washer. Thin wood strips, cardboard strips or even plastic soda bottle caps can be used as washers. Use an abundance of nails, so that the wind can’t make the tarp flap in the wind. Flapping will cause the tarp to tear.
Emergency Wall Repairs Like roofs, when dealing with wall damage, the first thing you need to do is determine if there has been any damage to the structure. That structure is essential for holding up the upper floors and the roof. So if there is damage to the 2”x 4’ studs, you’ll need to add studs in, so as to support the weight.
In the case of a serious breach of your wall, you may need to build a short section of wall and set it in place, inside the existing wall. If you do, you need to be aware of the direction of the current ceiling and floor joists. If they are perpendicular to the damaged wall, then you can put your support wall just about anywhere. But if they are parallel to the damaged wall, you will need to locate the closest joist to the wall and place your support wall there, so that it is sitting on the floor joist and the ceiling joist is sitting on it.
The easiest way to tell which direction your floor and ceiling joists are running is to look at which way your home is running. If the long side of your home is parallel with the street, the joists will be perpendicular to the street. This allows contractors to use shorter joists when building the home.
Another way of telling is to look at the roof’s main ridge line. The floor and ceiling joists, as well as roof joists, will be running perpendicular to the ridge line.
Once you have your wall structurally sound, you can skin it over with plywood. If you are receiving a lot of rain, you might want to cover this with a tarp or visqueen, although that is not essential. Caulking the edges of the plywood are also useful to keep the rain out, but not absolutely necessary.
Emergency Floor Repairs Contrary to Hollywood, it is rare that you will have damage to floors, but it can happen. If it does, you must be extremely careful in ensuring that you properly support what is left of the floor. One broken floor joist can mean an area four feet wide by however long the joist is that is not properly supported. Don’t trust the parts that remain, as they are merely hanging there.
It is not sufficient to use 2”x 4” studs as temporary floor joists, as they are not strong enough. But I didn’t put any stronger pieces of wood on that list. So, what you can do is to use a 2”x 4” stud, nailed to the side of the broken floor joist to stabilize it, and then add another 2”x 4” stud vertically, in the center or your patch, acting as a leg to support your repair. The vertical 2”x 4” will support the weight.
Holes in floors should be patched with ¾” plywood for strength. If you don’t have any ¾” plywood, ½” thick plywood can be used as a temporary patch, but it will feel spongy when you walk on it. Always be sure that the edges of any plywood flooring are resting on and nailed to floor joists. Never allow the edge to be between joists.
Broken Windows Broken windows are probably one of the easier repairs to make. All you need to do is cover the window with visqueen (clear plastic sheeting) and tape it in place with duct tape. While this won’t provide much security, it will allow light in.
If you need security, you could make a cover for the window out of plywood, but that wouldn’t allow any light through.
If the Gas is Leaking If you smell gas leaking in your home, you’ll need to shut it off immediately at the gas meter. The gas meter will always have a valve installed with it. This small valve, shown inside the circle on this picture, is often overlooked alongside the larger meter.
If the valve is parallel to the pipe, as shown in the picture, then gas can flow through it. You’ll want to turn it perpendicular to the pipe, blocking off the flow of gas. While the gas company has special wrenches that they use for this, you can accomplish the same thing with a pair of channel locks.
Take another look at that valve in the picture. See the two round holes, each of which is attached to a metal ear? When you turn the valve off, those should be in alignment. If you have a padlock available, slip it through those holes and lock it. That way, nobody can turn the gas back on, until repairs have been made to the gas lines.
If You have Damaged Electrical Wires Damage to walls can include damage to the electrical wires contained within those walls. That can be serious, as the damaged wires could spark, causing a fire. You can easily eliminate that problem by finding the right circuit breaker in your home’s breaker panel and shut it off.
Few people bother to do so, but it’s a good idea, when you move into a house, to go through and determine what each circuit breaker is connected to and write that in the chart contained on the inside of the breaker box door. That way, if you ever have to shut off power to a room, you’ll already know which breaker to use.
