A guy at work came up to me the other day and asked if I was a prepper. I asked him to define the word prepper and he defined it as "Someone who prepares for what is to come".
Being a little put off by his untimely and bold approach I asked what was to come and why he would ask me that.
His said the reason he asked me was because he saw an Emergency Essentials catalog on the dashboard of my truck and the answer to what was to come, he said whatever it is you are prepping for.
Cursed, I need to be more careful with what I leave laying around.
We should have a secret handshake or a safe word we communicate to one another so we can weed out the riffraff and the nonbelievers.
I still hesitated to confirm his beliefs about me so I asked him why he wanted to know. That is all it took because he spilled his guts.
The guy introduced me to a company he uses for all his food storage needs and said he will not use any other. They are located at http://wisefoodstorage.com/long-term-food-supply.html?ref=cj
Being I have never heard of them I looked the name up and gave my information for a free sample.
A short while later a Wise Company sales rep called my cell. Yea, I was as surprised as you are. I sure didn't like him calling me but used the opportunity to ask him some questions.
I asked if the company gave out it's customer list to anyone including any government agencies. His exact words were "Absolutely not, but if they had a warrant I would have no choice" and went on to explain. He said the Mormon deal a month or so ago turned out to be not true (I guess he has had a few people ask the same question) and went on to say he does know that the state of Tennessee was going door to door asking if people stored food so they could get it and use it for the flood victims.
I checked out the rest of the web site and do like some of the already made packs they have for sell. When I decide to make a purchase, I think I will start off with the 72 hour pack so I can restock my BOB.
They are not endorsing me in anyway. I just like sharing this info on what I find plus it does not hurt to buy from many different sources because you never know who is keeping track.
