You light a storm lantern to use the bathroom in the middle of the night because you know without it, you will never find your way back to your bed in the dark. You'll end up standing in the bathroom until sunrise....

-When you dress excessively in planned out layers to keep warm... in august

-When you take up sewing and use curtains and socks to mend your precious cargo pants and wool toque.

-When you start carrying a bedroll with you everywhere, so you dont die from exhaustion.

-When you get arrested for rummaging through the neighbor's cabinets for food, clothing, tools and guns

...when your dreams revolve around ensuring that you have sufficient sticks piled outside your front door so you can make fires with a magnifying glass when the days are sunny enough to make plenty of reserve water.

...when your character says, "I'm not sure I can carry much more.." and you reply in your best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice, "Stop whining!"

When you walk around with coworkers during your lunch break, you see a "Long dark shaped stick" on the ground and immediately pick it up. ;)
