I would really appreciate if y’all would read this post and then respond to it below. Please give me your thoughts and feelings in what I’ve written. How many of you are truly ready? How many of you have a safe place to go? How many of you can truly be self reliant and supportive? I’d love to know where you stand!!
Did you know that only 2% of the world population is engaged in agriculture or commercial fishing? Just 2% are feeding the other 98% of the world!
Are you like minded that we need to be as self reliant and as well prepaired as possible? Do you feel there are uncertain times ahead? Are you ready for civil unrest, world economic collapse, power grid failure. terrorist attacks or any type of disaster?
For the first time in history there are more people living in the inner city than in rural areas. Do you think most people these days know how to truly survive on their own by way of growing, preserving and canning their own food? What about your water supply? How safe is it and how reliant is it if the power goes down?
Grocery stores carry three days supply of food. What happens when deliveries stop or you have no money?
People will resort to looting. They will go after the stores, restaurants and food supply warehouses and distribution centers. What happens when those are quickly emptied? There will be bands formed to come after what you have. They will venture further into the farmland. They will be well armed and organized.
Do you know these to be real and true?
Do you think that you’ll survive in the city neighborhoods or populated areas? Those areas will be the most dangerous and most unlikely to survive.
Do you have the will and desire to get ready but no place to go that is safe, secure, well stocked with supplies and livestock? Do you know how to grow and preserve your meats, fruits and vegetables the old fashioned way without power?
No deep freezers, refrigeration and running water to even flush a toilet much less for drinking and cooking. No lights, no heat or a/c. No protection from the police as they will be extremely overwhelmed and a target.
Women and young children will be the most vulnerable as they will be the greatest targets.
Sound scary? It should as we as a country and world are trying to straddle a very thin tight rope thread of society. We as a whole are so reliant on others, corporations and the government to take care of us. We as a whole have lost the ability to take care of ourselves.
What happens when SHTF? Will you be ready? Have you formed a network of other
like minded people who can actually band together on a piece of well stocked property? Are you ready to hunker down for weeks or months at a time without leaving the safety of your property? Experts say that the time is coming very soon and you will need a minimum of four months of supply in hand that range from food, water, toiletries, fuel for lighting and so much more.
If you believe this is true and would like to join other like minded people, please reply to this post.
As in any situation….. timing is everything! Do not wait until it’s too late. That’s like trying to put your seat belt on before an impact. It just doesn’t work!
Be safe, T.T.

I feel we are well-stocked for emergencies. We have buried supplies in remote locations so if we are robbed, we can still survive on hidden supplies. Lots of traps, medical supplies, seeds, and water filtration on-hand. Need to drill a well. Know there is water 40 feet down. Got a Prius that can power most appliances in house with its huge battery and auto recharge. Solar panels for charging small batteries. Some neighbors who we can trust and others that will be in peril.
I agree with much posted. Fortune favors the bold and the prepared. The type and scale of the problem will determine who will die and how many. A pandemic will hit those that live in close contact more than others and will also do the least damage to the infrastructure (my preference, cold but it leave the survivors in the best condition and the corona virus just may be it). Civil unrest, natural disasters, etc will effect those closest to the areas where it starts the most. Death will be proportionate to how close you are and how stupid you are. Those foolish enough to not “get off the dime” will die in high numbers. Those that try to start a civil war whether the scum on the far left or far right will fail and die for their efforts. You cannot fix stupid. In the words of Admiral Yamamoto to the emperor of Japan when he suggested attacking the US mainland, “there will be a rifle behind every blade of grass”. Suicide! In a cosmic disaster we are all toast. Impact event, gamma ray burst, etc with the possible exception of a cosmic EMP burst which may destroy all electronics devices (do not laugh this has hit earth before) or a CME (coronal mass ejection) which has also hit earth before. No matter what it is, the stupid (which are many) will go berserk after the initial shock wears off. Large cities will become war zones and stupid will rule. Hell this happens during a power outage(they gots to break in and steal those shoes to survive). Neighbor will turn against neighbor for a short time just like during the Great Depression. After s**t hits the fan and the stupid runs out or dies out we will pull together and rebuild. I remember how fast we came together after 9/11. The strong will survive (as they should) and the weak will die (as they should). Nature always thins out the herd and removes the weak and unfit. Humans are no exception. Get your act together and be ready to pitch in when the time comes. Just like the mythical phoenix that sets itself afire only to have a new phoenix arise from the ashes, we will carry on.
To be honest, I have a lot of food storec and other preparations. However if I can’t earn money, I can’t pay the mortgage. So eventually I will loose my home and everything in my home.
Then what ?
Hey Andrew, When SHTF I seriously doubt, you will need to worry about how to make a mortgage or car payment. If there is an EMP, CME, grid down situation, natural disasters, terrorists or an economic collapse, all banking transactions will more than likely stop, and no one will come knocking on your door to collect. It is best to have at least 3 months cash reserves (in small denominations) put away in several safe places at home, for any possible purchases you may need in an emergency. Do what you can to enhance your food stores, medical supplies, seasonal clothing, water, gardening supplies and defensive equipment. Improve your ability to preserve and protect your home and family for at least a year or more. If possible, find like-minded, trusted neighbors to form a survival group. There is strength and security in numbers. But keep information about the extent of your prepping supplies and inventory to yourself. No one needs to know exactly how well you are prepared or where your supplies are kept. Releasing that kind of information to anyone, sets you and your family up as a target! Keep flying under the radar. Like they said in WWll, “Loose lips, sink ships”. The same holds true now more than ever for your prepping efforts. We are in hard times, be forever vigilant, safe and prepared.
