My wife comes from a family that is very financially secure. Not internet-billionaire secure but definitely upper class. We recently spent some time with them and I realized, perhaps re-realized, that being wealthy kind of makes you a prepper. Their home is very secure and made with heavy duty materials, windows have bars, doors are reinforced, it has wrought iron gates, a security system, video surveillance, etc. The entire place was designed to combine curb appeal, functionality and enhanced security including a basement safe room and a couple concealed rooms. The house has a whole-home multi-fuel generator with a back up generator for specific items, they also have some renewable energy sources like geothermal heating and solar panels. Not to mention a few different fireplaces. Their walk in pantry is very large and packed full of food. The have two chest freezers and 2 refrigerators and they are also packed full of food. The wine cellar, which also has other alcohols in it, is very well stocked. My FIL loves skeet shooting and their 3rd garage stall was a pallet of 12ga. Not a case, a pallet. But he also has a lot more ammo than that in his gun room. That room also has a gun safe full of nothing but shotguns, and a second safe full of AR-15's, a couple sniper rifles and handguns (he was a Marine and a sniper). Their house also has a bathroom with a first-air station. Not a first aid kit, a first aid station. I could go on... If all that is not enough, they also own 3 airplanes (a turbo prop, a twin engine and a large plane), a row of hangers and an aviation fuel depot. As well as a home on Colorado and a home in Arizona (neither being the home we visited and I described up above). He also owns a skeet range out in the country which has a small insulated building/clubhouse which could easily serve as a home if need be. My FIL is a pilot, both my BIL's are pilots, etc. So bugging out seems reasonably easy. While I enjoy the comfort and extravagance for a little while, more than anything I noticed how without even trying my in-laws are basically preppers. And the funny thing is, he was talking about how he hired a electrical engineer to help him EMP proof several items (possibly to include a plane). So maybe he is a prepper that just does not know he is a prepper.
