I know I know, another one of these posts. Well I was just reading another forum about these scenarios and a thought was posted that I wanted to ask you all about. It basically stated that the time could be closer than we all would like to think of the S hitting the fan. So they posed the question, why not BO now, head to a more SHTF friendly area, take the cut in pay, leave the congested and easy life areas, and start living like the S has hit the fan now.
My thoughts are, I cant afford to move anywhere, but I do try to be as ready as possible. Im going to get a reloading kit soonish to make sure I will have ammo when the stores shut down and there is not more ammo to be bought, or when money wont mean a thing to buy ammo....which will be worth more than food probably. Ive got about 20g of water stored up, and thats really all I have been able to muster in my small apt. Ive got necessary clothes for me and the wife, rain gear, cold gear, sleeping bags, tent, portable stove/oven that runs on propane...got two full propane cans at the ready. Have a half assed first aid kit, that we currently use now..lol. Have a bunch of duffle bags. Think Ill get a case of vienna sausages...they last 3 years, and taste great..haha most stuff doesnt last that long, and will probably go bad in your BO and be a waste, unless you gotta BO within 3 years...which is seriously possible with the upcomming elections in november.
Basically I would love to BO and start living that way right now, but in reality, I cant afford to do so, still hunting a LEO job, baby due in july, and I have no savings, so I cant just pick up and leave. What are you opinions on this, do you plan to? have you already done so? lets hear it!
