Question Do you know a Doomsday Prepper?

Apparently, I know 2. One much more extreme than the other. One has a stockpile of food, guns, ammo, water & lots more things they can trade. He is not public about it, but recently sent me a long FB message telling me his inventory & plans. I didn't know how to reply, so I didn't. This guy just extreme in many aspects of life. This was just prior to election & I kind of stopped talking with him after. I knew him from about 30 yrs ago.

The other. I consider fairly normal. Closer friend I see often in real life. And wouldn't have thought about it or noticed his actions if it weren't for another friend mentioning his suspicion to me. Sure enough. Tonight, he creates a list of FB of all the Preparedness pages he likes. So I jokingly said I would just go to his house. He stated he was going underground. Now, I do know they just completed a cabin up north. Now I wonder if it includes a bunker. He likes hunting, camping & outdoors, but not extreme. Nice family guy. Actually works in health care. When I combine his other interests, and recent questions about canning, yes, I'm starting to think they are stock piling too. This guy not extreme. Not weird. Curious to talk to him about what he is thinking is going to happen. Do I think he has the skills to survive something? Not so sure.

Me? HA. No prepping. Would I want to survive the end of the world? Probably not. lol Do I have those survival skills? Heck no.

Do I think something could happen at some point that most of us will not be prepared for? Sure. Who knows. Do I think governments around the world have plans to help citizens survive? Ummm, no. Its not possible to save us all so it may be best to not even try & just let everyone who is unprepared go. Sad but true. Circle of life. Survival of the fittest.

Didn't mean to get depressing. Just wondered if you knew any normal people that you were a little surprised that may be preparing for something / anything no matter the size.
