Consider your own lives. How many of you are on auto-pilot? We all settle into routines, that is human nature. We are wired to make certain assumptions about our day to day life. To do otherwise would be overwhelming to our brains.

Then ... the collapse event occurs ... TEOTWAWKI - SHTF - DOOMSDAY - ARMAGEDDON ... whatever label you choose. As preppers we face many threats. Pick your poison
