    This is an interesting look at an age old question.

    To me, prepping is normal. Most of the people who live around me and many of the people I know are prepared for at least some events. Most country folks are. Not everyone is armed, nor is everyone going to survive Nuclear War, but on some level I would say preps are normal here. Most would probably not call themselves preppers though.

    You beat me to it. I was going to link to this article too.:D

    The article gives a good description of what one prepper is doing and explains why and how that is "normal".

    Prepping has been occurring over the past century. It started following the Great Depression and has persisted through the Cold War, through the 9/11 terrorist attacks, on to today.
