People will believe what they want to believe, and prepping is a deeply personal thing. James_G does not believe that the end of the world will occur, so he doesnt plan for it. He does feel that it is reasonable to have 30 days of food storage and too plan for severe natural disasters. He thinks that you dont need a bug out location or a plan on how to get there. He is probably right.
James_G had a good point, if you are stockpiling beans and bullets while your kids need clothes, you are doing it wrong. You don't put together an INCH bag until you have food at home and a BOB. I personally dont think I will ever use a chest rig in anger. My badass door kicking days are behind me (just ask my wife), but I still have one. It was one of the last things I put together. it's just a basic rig, I have it, and I use it on occasion. My GHB see's far more use now then my rattle ever will. Luckily, like others here, my hobbies overlap with my prepping. This allows me to spend more money then I normally would. I'm sure that most of us are like that, and it's a good thing.
This is Zombie Squad, one of the things that makes us great is that we treat TEOTWAWKI as a huge joke, just like zombies. What we actually do is plan for those smaller events that probably will happen and keep an eye on the huge events that may happen. Sure we all joke about Raiders and Zombies, but in the end we have to survive until the mythical disaster strikes.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.
