Having 'preppers' knowledge may help in emergency situations

You might say prepping is trendy right now; or at least it’s very visible.

And a lot of people think preppers and survivalists and stockpilers are crazy. A few of them may be.

But the assumption that all these people are crazy — whether they mean legitimately mentally ill or just really weird — because they like guns or grind their own flour is flawed.

Maybe I’ve read too much Wilder and Thoreau, but it seems like prepping isn’t new, just the title is. I mean, everyone used to do this stuff. Everyone used to have these skills. People lived on farms, or even if they lived in cities, they canned their own beans grown out back.

My grandfather may have lived in town, away from his childhood farm, but he still rarely bought potatoes from the grocery store. He was a gardener, a carpenter, a handyman. My grandma sewed, cooked, and canned the fruits and vegetables from the garden.

I know such gender roles based on domesticity are unfashionable these days, but hey, those people were capable. They were self-reliant.

There’s nothing wrong with living in suburbs or shopping at megastores or buying pre-canned peaches or using a gas heater. But there’s something dangerous about assuming these thing are permanent and indestructible.

Even if the Mayans are wrong ... preppers are ready for anything

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - A group of Minnesotans that feels very misunderstood is also one of the most secretive movements in the state. They are the people known as "preppers."

If the Mayans are right, there's nothing to prep for - unless you have access to a bunker like Denver, but then you don't need any prepping either.

Many Mayan-calender followers think it is not about the end of the world, but a radical change in it...
