Usually, when the mainstream media mentions preppers and survivalists, the angle is not flattering. Maybe someone who considers himself a survivalist has committed a heinous crime and is on the loose. Perhaps a prepared family is beaming from the page while sitting in their bunker, hundreds of food buckets in the background and 17 paragraphs of mockery in the article below the photo.
But the possibility of a pandemic changes things, and with the Ebola case in Dallas, Texas, the folks in the mainstream media have a lot of questions for the preparedness community. With only a couple of exceptions, the reports have been a lot more open-minded than usual, if a little lacking in understanding of the preparedness community.
A while back, I wrote an article called 30 Signs That Youre One of Those Crazy Preppers. Lots of readers got into the spirit of things, since it was pretty darned relatable. We all know these are actually signs of sanity, but were used to being misunderstood by the unprepared and, sometimes its fun to have a good laugh about their misconceptions of what we actually do.
Then Ebola happened, here on American soil, and a lot more people jumped on board the preparedness bandwagon. To welcome the newbies, here are 45 MORE signs that you might have crossed over to the prepped side. (Many of these came straight from the readers!)
Many of these will be things that non-preppers just cant understand, but theyll probably give you a warm glow. Feel the prepper solidarity!

Now, in no way am I saying preppers are crazy and that we shouldn’t prepare. My point is to consider how others perceive us. If we come across as scary, obsessed, or weird, then it’s no wonder that they shy away from the prepper world when it’s possible that being prepared has been on their minds!
