30 Reasons Why You Might Be a Crazy Prepper Nut Job

With 100% certainty, I know that I am perceived as one of those “crazy prepper nut jobs”. I laugh at myself as I say this because like the story of the ant and the grasshopper, it is the crazy prepper nut job that is going to prevail following a disruptive event of any magnitude.

I first wrote about this back in December 2011, which, in prepper terms, is eons ago. Back then, preppers were a novelty and were considered extremists. These days, and especially with the release of Ted Koppel’s book, Lights Out, we are suddenly trail blazers and visionaries.

The Urban Dictionary describes a nut job as “A person of inadequate sanity or lacking normal perceptions of reality”. That is hardly how I would define modern day preppers and yet still, it is a moniker that is sometimes applied to our kind. Why is that?

n the broadest of terms, preppers live and breathe the need to be ready for uncertain times even though the cause of those “uncertain times” could be any of a number of diverse woes. As we talk about growing our own food, washing clothes by hand, grinding wheat into flour, and bartering for goods and services, the grasshopper types get a bit glassy eyed. Or perhaps they just get defensive. Sometimes it is hard to tell.

None of this seems loony-tunes to me, but then again, I am a Prepper.

This brings me to today’s topic: are you one of those “Crazy Prepper Nut Jobs?” Take this little test and see for yourself.
