I've been a survival oriented person since I was in grade school( I'm 37 now). I used to cache cans of ravioli, matches, knives, homemade spears, BB guns, and tire irons in my tree house. (Yes, I was very afftected by NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.) Learned how to shoot young and how to shoot long distance before I could drive. Played survival games with my friends in school. Spend lots of time in the woods. Learned how to use a bow very effectivly. Did the whole Y2K thing, but was a prepper before that. Anyway, I've started dusting off plans and restocking certain "items" a couple of years ago. Sometimes I get a little discouraged and a bit overwhelmed trying to think of contiginsies(sp?). It's bad enough I have to do this and not be able talk to people in everyday coversation. Does anyone eles ever get overwhelmed at times prepping?
