*Sigh*

TV about people who make me ashamed to be into any sort of preparedness.

At least it looks like Honeyville and Emergency Essentials are getting plugs I guess.

Well, like all TV, sensationalism is the win.

Same with the Alligator Clowns and Ice Road Pawnshop.

If they showed average people buying five bucks worth of Coleman propane once a month, it wouldn't be very exciting.

They did a show on History about some survivalist family, about a year ago, and it never caught on.  I thought it was pretty good, but it mostly involved this normal family jerry-rigging common stuff as they slowly slid off-grid. 

One of the episodes I caught was them making distilled alcohol.  They yucked it up as moonshine, and sipped a little to make good television...  But I think what they were learning to make was fuel.  They weren't drinkers.  All that effort for a couple sips of bug-juice?  No, bullshit.  Pure alcohol is ethanol, a clean fuel, a solvent, a way to trade agorist-style (money substitute). 

As my interest gained in this "reality television", I realized the family probably got more attention than they wanted, and then they realized it after the fact.  No different than most people who are into preparedness.  They probly banked a few bucks for supplies and GTFO'd of the show.

He wanted attention. Most preppers are smart enough to keep their trap shut about it. He got his attention.

Theres a legitimate reason for people to show how-to methods.  Obviously.

Problem is, most of these people will have a home hoard that looks pretty whack to "normal people".

As opposed to the home hot-rod mechanic guru, who will have a workshop with fifty grand worth of custom junk and specific knowledge, but nobody thinks thats nuts.

Its perfectly reasonable to have fifty grand worth of Snap-On shit, so you can tweak an extra 0.6 seconds off your quarter mile.

Not really. Not in such a way that would make me a target. I never say anything (Or to be honest, think much even) that'd get me in any more trouble than any of the tens of thousands of users on any gun forum like Glocktalk etc. If anything, my reputation with local authorities is better than average and I work to keep it that way. Hell, I've trained (somewhat now) local cops how to use guns safely.

I've never ever given specifics about "what" and "where", and also I'm on record here as a specific non-law breaker. I play by all the little rules and am pretty obsessed about crossing T's and dotting I's.

I just talk about what does and does not seem to be good ideas, and show examples of some of the stuff a person can do in regards to preparedness.

Hell, the vast majority of my posts on the subject are about where you can buy stuff.

So I'm not worried about gooberment people beyond the average liberty person, and as for becoming a high value target if any real shit goes down, heh, I'm not worried about that at all. Apart from a few trustworthy people my only address is P.O. Box XXXX, Belleville, Mi, 48111, and I don't live in Belleville. Our change of addy went to the P.O. box when we moved. A traceroute dead ends fifteen miles North of us.

<<<Upstanding citizen with "nothing to hide". Doesn't even smoke or drink and has bibles on his shelves. "Worst" books you'll find are Ayn Rand and Claire Wolfe. Of course I try to interact with people who will cause me to get irritable (Like many gooberment types) as little as possible, but just about every Joe Schmoe does that.

I don't think government inspection or involvement is the issue.  Its the interest of local peeps who would be pounding your door during SHTF scenarios.

That has been a classic fear since the fifties, when people were building fallout shelters. 

They did it "in the dark" because they didn't want their friends to know.  It would be a heartbreaker to turn them away.
