And, not to mention, that all your friends and neighbors might not be so friendly or neighborly when they haven't eaten for two days. PErsonally, I like to keep vague on exact amounts of things, unless A: I intend to share them out with all comers, or B: the info will be kept with in my group. Just my 2 cents.
On the subject of preaching the prep word to others:
When a guys wife is screaming at him because the kids are hungry,not heaven or hell will stop him from finding a source of food.He will remember you.
If you won't give it up willingly,word will go out that your holding.He will bring friends.It won't matter that you only have enough for you own,because his matter more.
He'll probably have a gun around the house and knows where you live.You put a target on your families back,all because you wanted to wake people up to a possible need.
Perp what you need quietly,and if the need does comes up you can share(if your so inclined)carefully.
Just be careful who you talk to.
There is great virtue in STFU.
