Re: How much do you really need?
I live in a small community... even smaller when the snow birds and terrorist.. oops tourist leave.. about 4k in the winter months.. 10k when we are in full swing of the summer... I have Lake Huron to my East... and not too many roads lead to us.. one maine running N-S and one that goes W.
I figured being a smaller community (hoping) we will pull our heads out of our buts and become the "Family" we actually are (some how we are all related in this town) We are a bunch of hunters, fishers, and farmers here... Id have to say 1 out of 5 don't have a gun and we have at least 5 to each one that does... We reload... come on we are hunters... and we know the woods....
I realize wally world and the local grocers would be raided... but if we pull it together, we could make wally world and the grocers our place of prepping food we get from the land... who the hell would want to take over the Tawas area any way?
I guess what I really meant to ask.. is can one depend on or convince ones small community to become a small defended "civilized" compound. Or will it become one small group watching their own back from another?
You can't prevent the inevitable.. only alter its time span!
