Every person will face an ugly new reality when life as we know it vanishes. It’s coming. Soon. It might be a slow crawl decline or a rapid descent into nightmarish conditions. Various scenarios now flit threateningly across the horizon. If we’re brave enough to peer into the abyss, we can see some of these events bordering on fruition. Most are unnerving; some will be paralyzing. Regardless of the fright factor, we must examine individually how to handle these looming crises.

Do we really need input from the Art Bell wing of the prepper community?

We’re rural. I’m prepping tomatoes right now. All we need is some more basics, that’s going to happen. We’re ready for the zombies.

I don’t know about war but there will definitely tough times with massive unrest in the cities.

I’m not bugging out. I’m standing my ground and killing zombies.

War is coming. We’re heading for WWIII. Us against the mussies.

“No matter where you go, there you are.”
I live near water. I have some stores and defenses. If I did not have these I would be looking to move already.
Worst case... sail south till the butter gets soft then flip a coin, left or right?

I’m going to a pick your own place tomorrow. My last cans of tomatoes are ‘beeping’ at me. Tomorrow, I’ll get my last 30 quarts of tomatoes. Life is good.

I’ve got a lot of dry beans with more drying on the vines now. I’m thinking about canning a couple dozen cans of bean soup.

Seems that Paul simply dealt with the circumstances in which he found himself. Not the same as being stupid, or falling on the sword, but more like keeping this in perspective...the billion year perspective.

No, I got as far as the solar flares and gave up.

Any thoughts on leaving the US in the event of an 0bama win with eventual economic and civil strife?
The article did mention renting an apartment. Perhaps offshore is best.

I do a lot of trading with neighbors. I got the tomatoes by trading some of last year’s dry beans to a farmer who didn’t want the hassle of growing them. I have pickles coming from a neighbor I started plants for in the spring.

I’m not leaving. We have to fight right here. This is MY country. There’s no place else on earth that I’ll live.

The battle lines, if we can call them that, will be everywhere. Right through some peoples’ living rooms. Pretty much like personal accounts of the times leading up to the first American Civil War.
