Maybe it should be pink camo, and a second text on the back could say, " I have lost my way"

This topic is getting crazier by the hour, is it a full moon tonight?? :)

It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Levity aside...LMAO... we are voting on the idea of adopting the circle / triangle motif as a base for a prepper "sign". There are 4 people voting to adopt. What does everyone else think?

Please see above.. both Greenguy and MM have examples. It wouldn't need to be followed exactly... just the circle / triangle motif as a base. Each individual can embellish it as they wish so long as the base is clearly discerned.

Rangers Design is harder to see as it was a pic taken on a phone of Leather with burnt in logo.


So it is easily doable.

You can make it in any colors you wish... the base design is what matters... circle and triangle. The relationship and embellishments are up to you but keeping it close to what is depicted will help others recognize you as a prepper.

Perfect... and yes indeedyyyy... you DO seem to be a crafty thing...LOLOL

Am I correct in assuming that the majority wish to go with this... circle / triangle motif and the rest is up to the individual...?

There is also another contender, for a different reason, the penny on a lapel pin. Please go and take a look see folks.

I just had a thought... Hey... it DOES happen once in a while..... If we adopt BOTH we can use them this way.... One or the other is a sign the person is probably a prepper. Used TOGETHER they are DEFINITELY  a prepper.  That is what I will be doing. Thanks for the reminder Wild_E

I bought some foam sheets today at the dollar store

app size (cause my tape measure is somewhere in the house and I slipped the disk in my back again today)...8 inches by 5 inches...50 in a pack for 3 dollars

10 different colors...I have pin backs..I am going to cut a square out of the foam and draw a black triangle on it with black marker...glue the circle to the pin back..will do the same with larger signs needed..these can be glued to sticks or tied...if I need them thicker I will glue 2 sheets together...or I will be Zip Lock Rona staple gun survivor and staple a few of them together :o

This is just an idea have to do the actual...I'll have to get one of the kids to go up the ladder to get my other supplies down..

P.S I will be using the green ones first of course....

suction cups..also...and of course wear the pin backs..on hats or clothing...also if I have to bug out these are very light can get wet and I could use cord or wire and find a stick to attach them too...so if we are walking we can carry it...

As far as signs within signs, we older folk, would still remember the triangle within the circle as CIVIL DEFENCE. The Eye within a Triangle is Masons. Mine is just a tree within a circle, just like a Boy scout badge for forestry. Greenguy is closer to the Civil Defense symbol.
