You need a plan 'B' because:

“There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.

Underestimation can be fatal.”

For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:

http://www.tomeaker.com/kart/preparedness1i.pdf

For those of you who haven’t started already it’s time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.

I think that we are at the very least in for a collapse much like that of Argentina’s ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yerKMQc7-w&feature=grec_index), but as a armed society with a very large entitlement minded population our collapse will be much more violent and I see many many small business wiped out by flash mob looting, and large scale violence (look at what happened just this past Memorial Day and 4th of July weekends)we are seeing these mobs grow bolder and bolder like:

Chicago’s CBS 2’s Jim Williams reports, the problem of mob attacks downtown is much bigger than the weekend beatings, according to beat cops who wanted to remain anonymous.”

And it’s not just Chicago, but Washington DC, Las Vegas, St Paul, Philadelphia and on most major big ‘Blue’ cities are increasingly reporting such flash mobs and gang muggings. Look what happened just this past weekend in Peoria, Il:

I see what I call ‘Pocket Pogroms’ taking place in many big ‘Blue’ cities and if you aren’t a “0bamamite yutes” it’s going to get Reginald Denny bad for you very quickly.

As the LDS say “When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.”

Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3

“There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.

Underestimation can be fatal.”

After the cities are in ruins, criminal gangs will start to migrate to the country where they will continue their business of stealing and terrorizing in more fruitful territory.

Riiiiiight. Somehow I think "their business" will be quickly and violently curtailed......at least around my area.

Already been planned out. We’re rural, and farm impliments make nice roadblocks. Topography is our friend. There’s a reason WV hollers remained isolated for so long.

Reminds me of the original BEDAZZLED, when Stanley rejoins the devil atop a telephone pole, where he’s messing with the connections. Stanley asks for advice, as always, and the devil relates a story from the Chinese philosopher Lao Tse ( sic ) using his electrical clips as props: “Suppose you were hanging from a cliff by a rope, and at the top of the cliff was a hungry tiger ( snap snap ) and at the bottom of the cliff was another hungry tiger ( snap snap snap snap ... ) what would you do?”

Stanley says, “That’s the stupidest thing I ever heard,” and the devil replies, “Oh, you’ve got nothing to learn from Lao Tse and his hungry tigers!”

I can only hope those punks bring bricks to the gunfight.

Thanks for posting. Our side will be better prepared. The other side will need clean underwear.

If you are an urban dweller, your Plan B ought to be the same as Plan A—sit tight. Because the people in Mayberry are all armed and have been shooting varmints since they were thirteen. Your Saturday night special is no match for well-zeroed hunting rifles with telescopic sights and the usual shotguns wielded by people who have actually used them.

I’m a bit lower than that (1500) and about 90 mins. NW, but the terrain is definately in our favor. Pinchpoints, sightlines etc. have all been identified and discussed. Gas wells and lines abound, so energy will not be a problem. Just have to change orifices from propane to NG. Most folks have water wells and there are several NG and many gasoline generators also. All the talk started in Dec.08 and it has just been evolving since then.

A friend called a couple days ago saying they were talking to a contractor who was telling them all about prepping and stocking up. They were so amazed that he’d said the same things I had told them two years ago. Of course, as far as they’ve gotten is knowing two preppers.

At 200 yards or more, it wouldn’t matter.
