Reading my local paper in the wake of the latest school massacre in the US I came across this link. Piedmont Virginia Preppers Here we have a site for those who are preparing for the end of the world, or, probably better said, the end of society. So is this all useful gen? Or are they simply the side of the Yanks that makes us all shake our heads? I saw some of the information as potentially useful, but I would also love to be the fly on the wall at one of their meeting to observe the characters. Any thoughts gents? Does anyone know how widespread this tendency actually is? Should we adopt it over here? With the way Spanish politics and economy is going I'm off with the shovel to dig my bunker over christmas. I turn it over to you.
