I'm absolutely the target market for shows like Revolution and The Hunger Games.
I plan the coming apocalypse with optimistic fear, because that's who I am. I believe I'll survive (optimism) and that my whole family will survive (extreme optimism) and that I can prepare in advance to make our new life reasonably bearable (insane optimism).
- I don't have a bomb shelter or four dozen cans of soup (I'm working on the soup).
- I do have an emergency list of supplies so I know what I need and don't need.
- I'm a decent camper.
- I have experience growing vegetables and preserving foods and I'm in the process of saving seeds so I can start plants at home this spring.
- I can sew and have made quilts and I just learned a basic knit stitch so we should be OK for clothing, if I can get my hands on fabric and thread.
And I recently went extremely far out of my way to score a free flat of bottled water from Giant Eagle. I hate bottled water and judge people who drink it. (Yes, I'm judging you.) But I know that bottled water will be life-saving in the first few days after the end of days.
