Who is included in your Prepping and Who do you tell?

You figured out that you will prep for your immediate family. Husband, wife, kids, grandkids, grandparents, which ever generational way you want to include. Now imagine that the SHTF. Are there going to be any unexpected people? Or do you say, well, the hell with them? Are you willing to prep for your sister and her moron of a husband or your lazy brother and his haughty wife and their kids hooked up to their ipods and cell phones? Maybe a brother or sister and their families who have just lost their jobs and are struggling. Maybe it's elderly or ailing neighbors who don't have family close. It's a judgement call and it's according to what you can afford and have space for. If you don't have anyone specific in mind, you might want to have a little bit extra, just incase.
Now, who knows about your preps? My immediate family, of course. I don't go through the supermarket or warehouse club doing The Happy Prepping Dance or anything. I also have my children refrain from saying "Well, we have a ton of food". You really do need to have a talk with your children about this on their level. You don't want to have people in the house when your youngest tells you in his "outside voice" I know where one of the safe's are. Ahem...

Those are some very good thoughts to think about. People should make a firm and logical decision now and stick to it, no matter how bad things get. We must teach everyone we can, for as long as we can how to prep, but we simply cannot feed everyone. I always refer back to "Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime" I would also refer people to the Survival Creed that Erik has posted on Massachusetts preppers Network..... "SURVIVAL CREED THE WELL PREPARED ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO ENDANGER THEIR OWN SURVIVAL TO ASSIST THOSE WHO HAVE REFUSED, FOR WHATEVER REASONS, TO PROVIDE FOR THEIR OWN WELFARE! POOR PLANNING BY YOU DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN EMERGENCY ON OUR PART! miles stair..endtimes report"

...just me and mine on the immediate stores,extras are anticipated(couple 'small' ones)and planned for accordingly(baby food)...anyway,made my mind up awhile ago,adults who are too sheeple to prepare will be shown no quarter here,my stores are our lives,i will protect them as such...
