When Patty Tegeler looks out the window of her home overlooking the Appalachian Mountains in southwestern Virginia, she sees trouble on the horizon.

‘In an instant, anything can happen,’ she told Reuters.

‘And I firmly believe that you have to be prepared.’

Ms Tegeler is among a growing subculture of Americans who refer to themselves informally as ‘preppers.’

Some are driven by a fear of imminent societal collapse, others are worried about terrorism, and many have a vague concern that an escalating series of natural disasters is leading to some type of environmental cataclysm.

They are following in the footsteps of hippies in the 1960s who set up communes to separate themselves from what they saw as a materialistic society, and the survivalists in the 1990s who were hoping to escape the dictates of what they perceived as an increasingly secular and oppressive government.

Preppers, though are, worried about no government.

Ms Tegeler, 57, has turned her home in rural Virginia into a ‘survival center,’ complete with a large generator, portable heaters, water tanks, and a two-year supply of freeze-dried food that her sister recently gave her as a birthday present.

She says that in case of emergency, she could survive indefinitely in her home. And she thinks that emergency could come soon.

‘I think this economy is about to fall apart,’ she said.

A wide range of vendors market products to preppers, mainly online. They sell everything from water tanks to guns to survival skills.

Conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck seems to preach preppers’ message when he tells listeners: ‘It’s never too late to prepare for the end of the world as we know it.’

‘Unfortunately, given the increasing complexity and fragility of our modern technological society, the chances of a societal collapse are increasing year after year,’ said author James Wesley Rawles, whose
Survival Blog is considered the guiding light of the prepper movement.

A former Army intelligence officer, Mr Rawles has written fiction and non-fiction books on end-of-civilization topics, including ‘How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It,’ which is also known as the preppers’ Bible

Emerging market: Best Prices Storable Foods in Texas has seen a surge in customers looking to fill their pantries and basements with nonperishable foods to ride out any fall of civilization

‘We could see a cascade of higher interest rates, margin calls, stock market collapses, bank runs, currency revaluations, mass street protests, and riots,’ he told Reuters.

‘The worst-case end result would be a Third World War, mass inflation, currency collapses, and long term power grid failures.’

—– HOW TO STOCK UP LIKE A PREPPER

You don’t have to own a fallout shelter and believe society is on the brink of collapse to store some extra supplies in case of a natural disaster or other emergency. Here are a few suggestions from the federal government:

….. Food – Three day supply of non-perishable food that requires no heat or refrigeration and little water to eat. Consider MREs (military rations), peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, canned ready-to-eat soup and energy bars. Be sure to include a can opener

….. Water – One gallon per person in your household per day. Keep enough for at least three days.

….. Light – Candles with matches and flashlights with fresh batteries
Communication – Battery-operated on hand-crank radio with NOAA weather radio function

….. Health – First aid kit as well as an prescription and over-the-counter medication you regularly use

….. Sanitation – Spare toilet paper, paper towels and plastic garbage bags

….. Documents – Be sure to keep important documents and family photos together in an easily-accessible place in case you need to leave home

A sense of ‘suffering and being afraid’ is usually at the root of this kind of thinking, according to Cathy Gutierrez, an expert on end-times beliefs at Sweet Briar College in Virginia. Such feelings are not unnatural in a time of economic recession and concerns about a growing national debt, she said.

‘With our current dependence on things from the electric grid to the Internet, things that people have absolutely no control over, there is a feeling that a collapse scenario can easily emerge, with a belief that the end is coming, and it is all out of the individual’s control,’ she told Reuters.

She compared the major technological developments of the past decade to the Industrial Revolution of the 1830s and 1840s, which led to the growth of the Millerites, the 19th-Century equivalent of the preppers.

Followers of charismatic preacher Joseph Miller sold everything and gathered in 1844 for what they believed would be the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Many of today’s preppers receive inspiration from the Internet, devouring information posted on websites like that run by attorney Michael T. Snider, who writes The Economic Collapse blog out of his home in northern Idaho.

‘Modern preppers are much different from the survivalists of the old days,’ he said.

‘You could be living next door to a prepper and never even know it. Many suburbanites are turning spare rooms into food pantries and are going for survival training on the weekends.’

Like other preppers, Mr Snider is worried about the end of a functioning US economy. He points out that tens of millions of Americans are on food stamps and that many U.S. children are living in poverty.

‘Most people have a gut feeling that something has gone terribly wrong, but that doesn’t mean that they understand what is happening,’ he said.

‘A lot of Americans sense that a massive economic storm is coming and they want to be prepared for it.’

So, assuming there is no collapse of society — which the preppers call ‘uncivilization’ — what is the future of the preppers?

Ms Gutierrez said that unlike the Millerites — or followers of radio preacher Harold Camping, who predicted the world would end last year — preppers are not setting a date for the coming destruction. The Mayan Calendar predicts doom this December.

‘The minute you set a date, you are courting disconfirmation,’ she said.

Ms Tegeler, who recalls being hit by tornadoes and floods in her southwestern Virginia home, said that none of her ‘survival center’ products will go to waste.

‘I think it’s silly not to be prepared," she said.

‘After all, anything can happen.’

Vera Lynn – "We’ll Meet Again"

We’ll meet again,
Don’t know where,
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day
Keep smiling through,
Just like you always do
Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

So will you please say "Hello"
To the folks that I know
Tell them I won’t be long
They’ll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singing this song

We’ll meet again,
Don’t know where,
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day

Darn Good Westerns Volume 2: Shotgun, Massacre, Three Desparate Men, Deputy Marshal, Outlaw Women, and Four Fast Guns

Darn Good Westerns Volume 2: Shotgun, Massacre, Three Desparate Men, Deputy Marshal, Outlaw Women, and Four Fast Guns

Disc One: MASSACRE: Indian treachery leads to tragedy in this made-on-location Western adventure with Dane Clark and James Craig as officers of the law who lead a small group of men into redmen territory to investigate reports of guns being sold to unfriendly Yaqui Indians. Every arrow screams death in an unexpected finale. 1956 (76 minutes) THREE DESPARATE MEN: Deputies Preston Foster and Jim Davis save their brother Ross Latimer from hanging for a crime he didn t commit, but a guard is killed in the fracas and this makes all three hunted criminals. Now living to defy the law instead of defend it, they rob a train and then brazenly attempt a one-of-a-kind double-holdup. 1951 (72 minutes) OUTLAW WOMEN: Meet the babes who shoot to thrill and make the coyotes howl! In this offbeat Western yarn, the town of Las Mujertes is run by women and controlled by saloon owner Marie Windsor, but male visitors (including Jackie Coogan as a gunslinger!) create complications. 1951 (72 minutes) Disc Two: SHOTGUN: Sterling Hayden challenges the fury of the untamed west with a SHOTGUN in this gritty outdoor drama. He’s a deputy who vows to avenge the murder of a marshal and hits the vengeance trail, encountering half-breed Yvonne DeCarlo and bounty hunter Zachary Scott. Tracking the killer leads into Indian country, where they are captured by redmen who pit Hayden and his quarry against each other in a shotgun duel. Harrison’s Reports hailed this Technicolor Western as “fast, exciting and interesting … it holds [the viewer] in tense suspense.” 1955 (80 minutes) DEPUTY MARSHAL: Wrongly suspected of murder, deputy marshal Jon Hall devises a plan to draw all the actual suspects (including Dick Foran and Russell Hayden) out into the open and prove which one of them committed murder in order to profit off of the coming railroad line. Hall’s real-life wife, Frances Langford, provides a few songs. “Fast-moving action” Motion Picture Exhibitor. 1949 (76 minutes) FOUR FAST GUNS: Against a backdrop of Arizona landscapes, this offbeat Western spins the yarn of a wanted man (James Craig) who turns unofficial lawman to tame the town of Purgatory–but finds that the main troublemaker is a crippled saloon owner whose infirmity, according to the Western code, keeps him safe from gun justice. Craig becomes the target of a succession of hired leadslingers–including his own brother (Brett Halsey). Who is the FASTEST of the Four Fast Guns? 1959 (72 minutes). Bonus Features: Trailers, Interview with Robert L. Lippert, Jr., producer of MASSACRE. Product Specs: 2-DVD9s; Dolby Mono; 448 minutes; Color/B&W; 1.85:1 / 1.33:1 / 2.35:1 Aspect Ratio; MPAA-NR; Year – 1956, 1951, 1951, 1955, 1949, 1959; SRP – .99.
