    Perfect Storm, exiting the cities

    Well kids, Anyone paying attention knows that we are selling our place in town, and relocating (at least temporarily) to the sticks.

    I convinced MrsPH on economic and "Covid cancelled everything" grounds, but it appears that we are not alone.

    No less than a third of our in-town homeschool group are bugging out. And that with no discussion or coordination. We were the second, but the list keeps growing.

    There are no two stories that are close to the same, but the root causes are the same.

    Proggie policies and prime home prices.

    Make of it what you will. I wonder if the tail of the Baby Boom will not simply punch out of all this woke garbage. Maybe that's the plan...

    Two years ago we bugged out. We were lucky to find a nice place on 10 acres just outside a small town. Prices have risen dramatically around here since then because everyone is bugging out it seems.

    After 9/11 rural property prices at least doubled.

    All of Oz is like that. MANY Americans are settling, here. It's a great place, actually.
    You're only as good as your last performance.

    I would move to Australia but that counter clockwise commode swirl just freaks me out.

    I bugged out before bugging out got popular. I got the hell out of Dodge in 91 and haven't looked back, and I don't mess it one bit.
    Humble yourself, for there is an enormous change coming.

    ..same here. Left the city in '85, and have never looked back. At least for now, being one of the landed gentry in rural/small town America ..insulates.. us, somewhat, from the madness of Progresso World. I doubt we have many years before that refuge is taken from us, as well.

    The world is not a friend to the soul of man.. it will corrupt and destroy us. It is impossible for a sincere, thinking human being to be a friend of this world.

    The fig tree is budding. The signs of the weather indicate an imminent storm. The timeline predicted by the Creator is progressing as foretold. Perseverance is the most urgent need, in these times.

    Flee the city. Then, flee the next. We won't run out of refuges until the Son of Man comes. But we must harden our minds and hold lightly, the things of this world: homes, careers, families, friends, and businesses. I see the clouds on the horizon. Perilous times loom before us.

    The Final Countdown has begun.

    I do think that the time is upon us but I am not ready to give up. At least I can still move farther and further back into beloved mountains leaving small traps to slow down my persuers.

    Giving up is not an option, for any friend of God or America. But putting hopes in man (the current inhabitants of north America) , that they will prefer the liberty of American ideology over the tyranny of cancel culture wokism, is beyond folly. I will die a Free American. ..probably sooner than i think! But my primary ..loyalty.. is to the Creator Himself, not American ideology, even though it esteems the Creator.

    I will be less likely to flee than most, but i should be ..prepared.. to do just that. I'm not, but i should be.
