I joined the Northern NJ Preparedness Meetup because I was interested in survival preparedness.  I think that society, especially in the suburbs, socially frown on prepping and preparedness in general.  Almost everyone I have met that is a prepper in New Jersey has prepared for disaster very quietly.  Including myself.  For me to join a […]
