Hi,

I have been interested in prepping for some time now but just recently actually put my thoughts to actions. I am scouring the web for information and learning a lot. I'm a 25 year old private software developer and self employed. Just goes to show you that all walks of life prep. Most people I know assume your prepper is a hillbilly in the mountains. However at the moment, I'm a bit of a closet prepper, as I don't think my family would think highly of it. I would love to learn as much as I can, and share it with those who find themselves in my position, new and unsure. I look forward to learning and sharing my experiences with you all.

My brother goes ballistic whenever I mention prepping. It's stupid he says. Ill just go out guns blazing. Way to be the stereotypical redneck dumb ### I think to myself. But he's my brother and I want him to get ready. Here's how his intervention is going. People freak out at the mention of doomsday. So what I've found is that people ignore the obvious signs because they are usually scared and wouldn't know where to start prepping so they just do nothing. I went with more socially acceptable prepping ideas like saving money by building a solar panel, a wind generator, methane generator(biodigester) to make natural gas. Stuff that will cut utility bills. Once I got him to think its a good idea to save money I just throw up what about another project. How about a global bucket garden. Then step up to aquaponics gardening. He is now prepping but if you asked him if he's a prepper he would say no. He's just being environmentally conscious and saving money on bills. See where I'm going with this?
