Here in Central Queensland Australia
we occasionally get cyclones/floods. A year ago our town was cut off from all our supply routes, within a week the behaviour of quite normal abnormal citizens went bad, one instance was a local supermarket restricted the amount of loaves of locally made bread to two per family
A woman grabbed the last four from the shelves and went to the check out only to be told she was restricted to two loaves. HER REACTION? she tossed the other two on the floor and stomped on them depriving anyone else of bread.
This was only one week down!!!! Week two bought people hoarding petrol, the queues were 60 vehicles long, the dumb thing was you could only drive 15 miles in any direction and our town has 20 or so fuel storage tanks
, we are the depot for the central area!!!!
Yachties tend to prep by nature, our cupboards are always stocked with the basics/staple foods along with alternate ways of cooking
Because we are always prepared for what nature and circumstance throw at us, can't buy bread? = make it! Can't buy milk? = get the tinned or powdered or long life out of the cupboard.
It ain't rocket science it's just prepping so you can get by OR
if you are on your boat you can stay out longer with no pressing need to GO SHOPPING
End of the world? Nahhh as KATE
