It is not relevant to what I was trying to say about whether I live in a rural or urban setting.
Full disclosure, where I live the population density is 641 per sq mile - but I am only about one good afternoon’s walk from a town of 70,000.
And yes, I am armed.
Cuban Leaf summed it up well in his post above - there’s a difference between being prepared and looking forward to it.
As I read the posts here and other places, there is always a good mix of prepared people (and no matter HOW MUCH YOU THINK YOU ARE PREPARED, the REALITY WOULD BE VASTLY DIFFERENT!!!) and those who seem to look forward to it like shooting fish in a barrel or some kind of new-fangled ultimate violence video game or “Survivor” rerun.
If the only answer a person has to civil disruption is “Time to start shooting people” well then I kinda hope those folks are the first ones to see the inside of a FEMA camp.
I live in a town of 1200—and we are a good day’s walk from a town of 1300 and another of 3500, and I feel a bit too urban. The rule of thumb to be at least two gas-tanks away from a major urban centre seems a good one—and we’re only half a tank away from one and a full tank away from another.
