RE: Hello from Co. Durham
That is exactly the way, Ferret.
That way you stay off the radar of most folks and 'the others' too.
You build up almost a can at a time until you are suddenly well stocked up and you just maintain your stocks and keep watch as the days grow darker.
You and your family will then be ready when the day of the sheeple comes.
Prepper Kid: when will the sheeple wake up to the reality?
Prepper Parent: When it is too late to begin prepping for it.
