I agree with both of you Joker and Trace.  OpSec is important and not paint a target on your head of where people can go for supplies, but after reading The Prepared’s article on why you should share your prepping, I have lightened up and have been more open with sharing some of my knowledge with others. If we all keep preparedness to ourselves, then we are doing a disservice to us and our fellow human beings. It is important to build a community. If we share prepping with everyone and everyone is just that more prepared, then they won’t be coming to your house for supplies or a free handout, because they will have their own supplies and preps. You can tell people that they are camping supplies if they ever ask and you don’t trust them yet. That way you can still talk about the camp stove, solar panel, or food storage you have and educate people, but aren’t giving off the vibe of “I’m a prepper with a ton of supplies” if you want to be cautious.  Great job to Trace, his wife, and everyone else who makes these social media accounts, talks on this forum, or chats up someone in the grocery store line about prepping. We need more of it out there and it will only do good the more people who are prepared. You can create social media accounts and share your prepping ideas and never give out your name, address, amount of supplies, or even show your face. Doing product reviews on YouTube for example is a great way to educate people on what items work and where they fall short. That’s the beauty of the internet. Heck, no one here knows my name or where I’m from but I’m able to chat all day about prepping and make the world a little bit of a better place but can still keep my operational security in check.
