That would make the “average coach” a little older than the average human. Meanwhile, the mean ages of the CR, HRC and UHRC respectively were 51.5, 52.4 and 53.0. Preparers around the world have been safely curled up at home or in their bunkers during the COVID-19 pandemic. For them, long-term food storage is a baseline, so going one or two seasons without venturing out is mostly a psychological challenge.
I've spent the past three years interviewing people preparing for a future ambiguous disaster, and some of them emailed me in the early days of the pandemic from their strongholds, expressing wry frustration as they watched shoppers on television frantically stacking sanitizer supplies. hands, bottled water and, yes, toilet paper in their shopping carts. One wrote to me: “These people are fixing a leaking roof in a storm. The Boy Scouts of America teach our young people to always be prepared.
Being prepared is interpreted as meaning that you are always in a state of preparation, both mentally and bodily, to perform your duty. As sustainable technologies and the collapse of the globalization era are intertwined with unprecedented private skills to dig, a new underground policy of temporal resurrection is developing that is central to the ideology driving preparedness activities. By practicing the principles of food storage and home production, many preparers find that they have a well-stocked family store and eat better while spending much less at the grocery store. Meeting underground players, including preparers who build spaceships for time travel, will (re) frame the geo as the bunker moves out of its role as a defensive stronghold for temporal or speculative warfare and becomes a space of forceful and active epistemology of private chronicle chronopolitics in an era of dread.
Barry, Pink and Cole have the best urban underground bunker right in their garage; Steve Pace, a local survivor, is ready to face a long-term power failure; Carolina resident Laura Kunzie is preparing for a massive airborne flu outbreak. It's possible to take out a credit card and buy prepackaged food and expensive toys just to save them for “someday”. Preparers overcome barriers of age, race, culture, socioeconomic status, and religion as they come together to help each other every day, as well as when disaster strikes. Explorers are encouraged to be prepared by thinking about possible situations beforehand so that they understand what to do and are prepared regardless of the accident or event they face.
Jeff Bushaw plans to bring his family to safety after the eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano; Allen and Franco have built sustainable food production systems in preparation for global food shortages; John Adrain has invented numerous security devices to turn his property into a technological stronghold except from a wide range of disasters. Jason Beacham is a 15-year-old boy who has been preparing for economic collapse since he was 11; Big Al is a musician from Tennessee preparing for a Russian nuclear attack with a secret location in the mountains; former racer Braxton Southwick of Salt Lake City is preparing for a biological terrorist attack.
