I have to be honest-I don't talk about prepping at work or with most friends. They just don't get it. I have one guy I work with on a regular basis who is on the same playing field and we share ideas and info all the time. One of my best friends knows about my preps, but doesn't really worry about the future; I can't force it on him I guess, although I worry about him and his family. I talked to my sister a while back and it freaked her out some. She asked if I was one of "those nuts" and the conversation ended. She called me back a little later, apologized, and said she did in fact understand, but that it was a little much to handle all in one shot. I agreed and have been easing her into it as of lately.
