    I've been around here for awhile. It used to be a vibrant place with a lot of posters. Now, not so much.

    Where has everyone gone?

    Well, after reading some of the posts here, I would guess many/most put on their tin-foil hats and bugged out (many out of their minds).

    glock_collector said, "Underground, far, far away....be careful brother as THEY are watching.."

    A perfect example of prepper paranoia completely run amok, would be this recent post.....

    Time to get out of town in Travel Trailer.

    I have found that if you have a hat with ear flaps you are able to wrap the aluminium foil closer to your head.Always double cover your hat with the HD foil.I wrapped a metal coat hanger around the top to divert the waves,but be careful of electrical shock.I covered my space blanket with foil to protect me when I sleep.

    The problem with a prepping forum is there is just not much new to say. Once you have the basics covered 95%plus of content is just repetition.

    Why was my post deleted? I was just suggesting from a private message I received from a member trying to promote another site may be contributing to loss of interest here.

    If I had to guess it's because the "other site" you mentioned was created by the same person that created this site and there is a bit of drama involved.

    My other guess would be that the "other site" was created by a member that is still quite active here and advertising pays the bills so they want to keep folks here.

    Pretty much ANY forum that has revenue, and even many that don't.. frown very strongly on any suggestion that there are other places and sites a person could go to.

    Yes I understand that, which is why I was pointing out that a member was privately recruiting to members. I am sure it would be highly relevant to the OPs question.

    Thanks for the tip. I will start panicking when the store shelves run out of foil. You can never have too many layers.

    I think most of us got tired of talking over the same stuff.

    Some of the best had personal events and/or passed away.
    There was another site. It s dead now.
    Of course there are other sites.

    We are already ready.

    I started preparing 21 years ago.

    As was already stated, it gets tiresome going over the same stuff again and again.

    I've been prepping since Jimmy Carter was elected. Still waiting for something to happen but at least I'm prepared.
