How Good of a Prepper are You? Get Your Prepper Score!


I thought this was kind of cool and fun.  For the new season of Doomsday Preppers National Geographic has a prepper calculator.  Basically by your answers it will let you know how prepared you are for a disaster.  I have found that I am definitely not prepared enough.  It is setup as a survey and judges you on 5 different categories which are water, food, shelter, security, and X-factor(random factors like bugout vehicle, medical, and communication).  Check it out at the link below and if you would like add a comment with your prepper score!

    There are really 3 cogtearies of people that getting ready for hell on Earth in varying degrees of intensity. First is the Survivalist or the Professional , the second is the Committed Prepper or the Semi-Professional , and the third is the Fair Weather Prepper or the Novice . Then you have the non preparation type of individual that I will discuss later.The survivalist knows much and can make it through all sorts of degrees of nightmare and is like the professional athlete that spends enormous amounts of time and effort to master their passion, to survive through practially anything.The committed prepper is someone that will constantly put the effort into being ready for all various emergencies but does not put the amount of time that a survivalist does. The committed or dedicated prepper is ready for most of the basic disasters but just not quite to the level in which the survivalist is ready.The fair weather prepper is someone that gravitates towards the fun part of being ready. While the committed prepper has a garden and ready for all sorts of canning and storage for the excess, the novice garden is only for good tasting vegetables at the end of the season. The novice prepper is not really committed and loses interest when the hurricane season is over, or the aftershocks from the large earthquake are over. This person is still much better off than the non-prepper in that they usually have something stored up for the next emergency.A few weeks ago a read a comment from a lady that really touched me in it that she did not have much money, yet she continued to try to store up what she could to try to be ready. She is definitely a very committed prepper and someone that should be very much admired unlike these imbeciles that don’t store up anything and live high on the hog. Ken does not want to admit it but he is a survivalist, HE IS A PROFESSIONAL. If a hideous nightmare hell hits the planet, Ken is likely going to be one of the few that are going to make it. Now lets look at the non-prepper, especially those that get on to these talk shows and condemn people that are trying to prepare themselves. Those that call anyone that attempts to get ready mental cases that are paranoid and living in fantasy worlds. The non-prepper that refuses to do anything to prepare and laughs and ridicules those that try to be ready, or the Classic Jackass . The classic jackass is someone who does not even store up extra lightbulbs, someone who if given a box of candles for free would sell them at a garage sale. The classic jackass does not even have extra junk food in case they run out during the big game, always can go to the store . This individual has empty pantries and yet filled up house full of expensive gadgets that seldom are used as they have become bored with them. The classic jackass depends totally on all the utilities working and maybe has a couple of bottles of water in the refrigerator. In other words, someone totally dependent on society continuing to function normally . This is the vast population of the country.To further go on about the classic jackass, probably many in your neighborhood, are the type that will become the biggest MOOCHES you could ever believe when their little world no longer functions like it should. These individuals are exactly the same type of people that have talked behind the prepper’s backs about them being crazy for spending money and time trying to get ready. They are also the first on the prepper’s doorstep asking for a hand out. They are exactly the type of people that would barbecue everyone’s pets in the neighborhood at first sign that society was not going to be back to normal anytime soon. SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN NOTHING is so true, and even the novice prepper that kind of goes with the trends of getting ready is still going to be a lot more secure and prepared than the non-prepper. Everyone that tries to prepare even a little bit are different than the rest of them thankfully , they are not in the category of a jackass.
