ziggysdad: Great that you can be having the conversation within the family . My family assumes that my focus on preparedness was a phase where I no longer talk about it at length. In reality I just feel much more secure in my preps and don't want to preach. Apr 26, 2017 14:09:52 GMT 10
reynold: good afternoon, or evening for most of you. I have been searching all day on underground bunker ideas. I've seen post after post with bunker talk and fortifying. I'm not interested in guns and stuff, just how to build an underground bunker. TIA Apr 26, 2017 17:53:57 GMT 10
token: Jay, wind makes it chilly 5.5hours east of you too. Reynold, me too! Apr 26, 2017 18:50:27 GMT 10
Jay: Welcome reynold - I have added a few videos & posts re living in bunkers - hope it helps. Apr 26, 2017 19:53:57 GMT 10

cookieoz: hi there, have been prepping now for 2 years with my family...hubby and 3 kids. Finally got my parents wanting to prep as well. I understand how you feel ziggysdad with not wanting to preach. When they don't want to hear it I call it ostrich syndrome. Lol Apr 27, 2017 2:58:34 GMT 10
shinester: Heya Cookieoz Apr 27, 2017 3:05:38 GMT 10
