Eastern Iowa prepper

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - On the eve of September 11th, many Americans are reflecting on the attacks on America and the idea that our nation could be vulnerable.

One Cedar Rapids man has spent decades preparing for these types of situations, and even more, the problems of every day life.

Joseph is what's popularly known as a "prepper." He has a stockpile of years-worth of collected non perishable food items, home goods, toiletries, and tools.

Joseph has multiple sclerosis and hasn't worked for years, but his stockpile has kept him afloat and comfortable in his Cedar Rapids home.

While he has no income, careful planning has left him living off $14,000 a year. He says he lives as comfortably as anyone who makes six figures.
