You will easily shake off small disturbances and maybe even moderate ones, but a complete break down will unleash millions of desperate people. Some of them will be well armed, maybe better then you. Some of them will be smart, maybe smarter then you. The well armed and smart ones will form groups for security and acquiring resources. Who can say what form it will take in any given region right down to the next valley over? I don't blame you for preparing and it is something I would like to do better myself, but the freedom to own, create, and prosper from ones own labor or intellect is something the Founding Fathers gave us that is more precious then 95% of the population realizes.


I don't claim to be the best, or have the greatest fire power. But, I make up for what I lack in by having a network and having several places we can go. It would be foolish to prep in one place. Stick and move. Have friends on your side that enjoy the bad side of things and don't mind taking care of business. That is why rabbits are so hard to find in the brush. They have more then one hole... 8-)

This was an interesting thread, just finished reading it. I have been trying to become more self sufficient over the last few years and it was interesting to see some of the ideas I have already implemented.

I don't usually like to resurrect old threads but I think with the political, environmental, and economic climate we are now in, I think this mindset is going to help us all going forward. Just my opinion...
