Are you willing to learn how to get prepared?

Absolutely! I am always willing to learn with open ears to the vast experience that exists out there about preparedness. We want to foster the same kind of environment through our store in Parkville, where we can hold classes and regular meet ups from the Preppers Network. I'm also a big believer in learning skills through organizations like CERT, Appleseed Project, the Missouri Militia, Law Enforcement training, and other other similar venues. No reason we can't lengthen the noodle between our ears and teach our family the same things. I enjoy holding conversations with others so that we can mutually learn more about preparedness.

Are you willing to promote a positive image of Preppers?

You bet! Its easy for us preppers to look like kooks when certain TV shows angle preppers in that light. I took the initial step and opened a store in downtown Parkville, which is surrounded by boutiques, restaurants, farmers market, and more. I think this helps to get the average person thinking about it a bit, and begs their curiosity. I believe that we can get people thinking about the very basics at least, and then move into the other "what if" scenarios. Again, I think just as much as providing the products at our online site, http://www.survivalprepstore.com, as well as combining these with education to the general public, you and I can help promote a positive image of preppers. I'm also a big fan of the networks like this, that help preppers to learn more and get the community prepared for any disasters.

Preppers believe that "everyone" should get prepared. Are you willing to be inclusive of others no mater their race, religion, gender, etnicity etc...?

Yes. We all come from many walks of life, but we are all part of a community whether we like some people or not. Preparing your community ensures that more people are part of the solution in a disaster situations, and less likely part of the problem.

Tell us what got you interested in preparing and what you would like to see happen with this group.

I've thought about preparedness since Y2K...It was the catalyst that got me thinking about the what-ifs. I also began preparing more as I learned about larger disaster possibilities like a crashing economy, or larger natural disasters. This led to my learning about other situations like EMP threats to our nation, and Coronal Mass Ejections. I became fully aware of how vulnerable I was, and my family, my community, and frankly the whole country. I started preparing for myself and my family first. Then I started sharing with friends and coworkers that it would be wise for them to at least cover the basics, if not more. Now, I want my community to think along the same lines, hence the opening of the store.

what genreal area are you in?this will help us know where to hold meetings.

Kansas City north area.
