    Away from the blackout -----> campfire keeps me company.

    An EMP is possible,.but a small possibility I believe.

    Nice to see you back, Joe.

    Can I survive the coming blackout?

    It all depends on how it comes down.
    If hubs is here with me we can survive as long as we need to.
    If he's not..........I'll try to survive until he gets here and I should be able to do that. I doubt if marauders on foot will get here any sooner than hubs will.

    So........ I'll not worry about it.

    It's no laughing matter tho. We probably will go bust at some point. A sense of humor will pull us through starvation.

    For food ...always possible to produce my own veggies
    and meat there is some farmers that live around my place will say yes to sell me farm product ....
    I really need some gas to operate the machines and car
    Learn to use an axe properly along with a bow saw. with those two items, you can forgo a chainsaw.

    Very flakey.

    But, to our confused colleague...I might suggest he read the Serenity Prayer. And dwell on it...no point worrying about what you cannot control or avoid.

    I suspect the moneyed fools with Bug-Out Trucks and hidey-holes in Aspen or Jackson Hole, are going to be the first to go - from gaping holes in their logic, and that they're so-far removed from animal realities.

    Fairly well prepared. Could always be better, cuz you just don't really know what level of SHTF is going to arise.
    The Progressives have become full blown NAZIs, to thwart a Hitler that doesn't exist...since that is the only way they can express, and self justify, their fascism.

    i'm very familiar with doing what i do for the last 24 years.

    btw, i was kidding about shitting in my yard, although i could, as i have enough acreage to do so.

    my dogs shit in their yard, their fenced in yard is about 1/2 acre.i bury that, on my property.

    nobody said it would be easy, or last forever. anymore than i will...

    i will abide, better than most i suppose...
