Jason Ray thinks the culture of “disaster prepping” is misunderstood. Thanks in part to National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers, a reality TV show about preppers, the term conjures images of far-flung, paranoid woodsmen hoarding Borax under their floorboards, a caricature of prepping that does no favors to Ray, whose main concern is taking care of his family.

So-called preppers are known to meticulously organize their lives, so when their sky-is-falling scenario of choice manifests—Ray’s is a mass recession if Donald Trump becomes president—they’ll have all their bases covered.
