When the revolution (or when the SHTF) comes, I want Bubba on my side. Now is NOT TOO EARLY to learn from him. If he has driven a cab (a seriously educative career) most of his life, he has “seen it all” and very likely has a shxxt detector second to none. You are blessed to have him with you.

I will forward you news letter to my adult children. Emergency food storage is just one finger on the hand. This will be a quick read to my busy children to give them more tools to protect their family, friends and Bubbas. Good job!

Reminds me of the song–a country boy can survive–. In our socially stratified atmosphere where we look down on the lesser folk we need to realize that these lesser folk may well be an aid to our survival.

Five thoughts:
1. Things don’t look too good for our society, government, and economy. You just need to look around and think.
2. You cannot survive in place by yourself. A larger group of two or more armed thugs will take you. You will be fortunate if they just let you live.
3. The best way to survive in place is as part of a nearby (e.g., neighborhood), like-minded group that is knowledgeable, willing to cooperate, and loyal to each other. Homeowner associations are a good way to develop and train such a group.
4. We all have different gifts and skills. The least of us may well become the first.
5. “He who trusts his government is a fool.”

Well, surviving alone or not which one is a choice. Either way has it’s pro’s and con’s and I think it is ones choice and the preference depends on your personality and how that fits into a community.

I prefer to go alone even though I have three people that depend on my care and fleeing can be done but a struggle to do. Most likely will live with in the territorially city I have been given to survive. Denver.

Going alone for me is not, I am alone. Rather, I am/will be the leader of the community.

The community already here knows when something goes down, I will be in the middle of it with a plan. That has already been established more then once. So they depend on me as well to some degree. For that I get much information that is needed for survival. They also know they have to take care of me or they have lost their defense or director that will be out front.. Scoundrels have not and do not live in this area long. They learn the drum beat quick and rather not contend. I think the same is true of intruders. The word gets out quick.

My fast companion German Shepperd has been a main stay. The fear of her is her presence. But she will attack and protect on command and round up people if needed. I will use my charismatic nature to go along ways to settle many issues and threats. Like a bluff if I may say.

Even though I have my stock of survival. I have already scoped out several streams from the community that could present water. Walk higher for clean water.

Those stream beds offer food also. Ten mile walk would put me in wildlife if needed. This would not be so much for me, but the community. They will have to participate in the work to partake creating a bond.

In doing this. One would hope to create a bond of trust. It surely does not take long to find out who is in for the long haul and those that are just taking a piece of pie. Creating your new community very quickly.

Judging people’s character accurately will be most helpful in times ahead.

May all your paths be safe

We live in a neighborhood where people on our street wave to each other, but not much else. There is one neighbor who lives next door who has talked to me about gardening, keeping bees, getting some chickens, he has guns, we have guns. We’ve never gone beyond that, and I don’t know how to bring it up. He’s kind of a strange bird, but I’m sure he thinks the same of me. I know it would be better for us to have more “numbers”, but I don’t know how to proceed. There’s another family at the end of the street who are possible “friends”, but they’re even more private than the other guy. I’m not sure how to proceed.

The easiest, and least threatening, approach is to simply ask them, “Do you know anything about the economic or social crisis that may be coming our way”.

If “No”, change the subject to the weather, their kids, their lawn, etc.

If “Yes”, ask them. “What do you think is going to happen” and listen carefully to their answer. Have a prepared response on which crisis(s) they may believe could happen (economic, food shortage, terrorist attack, weather or geothermal, societal breakdown, etc.) DO NOT give them any information on what assets you have set aside until you get to know them really, really well.

Meathead – Good suggestion on how to break the ice and/or not reveal your preps. I am more of an introvert(?), listener and learner except when teaching/discussing with like minded folks. I think that perhaps asking what they think about the show “Doomsday Preppers” might give you the opportunity to find where they stand without giving them any ‘real’ indication of my own opinion. I would criticize the show if I found no interest or appreciation from them.
For over a year, I tried to warn family and friends across the US about at minimal preps (72+ hours) and political concerns. Early this year I asked all to advise if they wanted to be on my Awareness list. Since only half a dozen responded YES, the rest can fend for themselves when it happens. I’ll wish them the best but they’ve made their decision to hide their heads in the sand.

From all the information I am gathering a lot of people are getting prepared to fight the NWO being shoved down our throats. There are lots of good sites to get good information of what is really going on that is not being put out by MSM nor Fox. Infowars.com is the best source I have found. I listen to Alex Jones daily on his radio broadcast. Check out the latest youtube: Impeach Obama 2012, 9:58 video. All this goes hand in hand with our preparation of what is headed our way.
