Survivalist? They cant survive a week in the woods.

Dec 3, 2012
I love this post over at Granny Millers page. I have been interested in homesteading for years. I am interested to help lower our families budget and to make sure if something hits like the hurricane that just hit the east coast or a winter storm that our family will be prepared to go without electricity and transportation for up to a month.

The whole survivalist/prepper movement is batshit crazy. It is scaring people into buying a bunch of crap they don't need or don't know how to use. People are stock piling goods yet they are not rotating their stocks so everything is just going to expire and they are going to waste all their money. Time after time there have been experiments done throwing survivalists in the middle of BFE and they have to make their way back to civilization. Again and again they fail miserably. Usually the ones who think they know the most are the ones that fall the hardest. Just because you read a book doesn't mean you can survive the elements. You take some kid that grew up in Montana and they can out track them any day.

The whole zombie apocalypse thing was a joke and code word for homesteaders during the 80s-90s for unprepared people after the shit hit the fan. It was nicer to say zombies instead of brain dead people who had no clue how to take care of themselves.

We used to want to survive long term if something happened. Now that isn't important. Our oldest daughter is Type 1 Diabetic. Her insulin is only good for 45 days unrefrigerated. There are some ways to keep it cool such as placing it where it wont freeze but stay cold in the winter or burying it 4 feet deep so it will at least be 54 degrees. The thought of losing a child because we could not get her the medicine she needs tears us apart. Our preparation now is to sustain our family for natural disasters and hope that medical science comes up with a cure for type 1 diabetes or a shelf friendly insulin.
