    It is simple. We need to stop thinking of 'instant gratification'.
    That would be surrender.

    It takes time. I'm not looking to feed the needy. I'll feed my own.
    Food does grow. Animals do breed. I don't need to be a farmer or a Dr of animal husbandry to make this viable. It already is.

    We've been through it before. And we've survived.

    I submit you ought to read the journals of the mountain men and early pioneers.....

    But each generation has to 'larn' some hard lessons on their own.....

    But if you're interested in someone else's perspective, read Jerry Pournell's "There Will Be War" series - particularly "Armageddon"...... >MW

    I would go to the phone to report all the people I was forced to shoot because they tried to harm my family.

    I had much better resources when I was younger and lived in Annapolis. My best friend's mother had a 38 foot sail boat that she had dumped 250K into so that she could sail around the world. They also had 35k in dehydrated food. I have since moved to the mountains of PA, where all of my wifes family is. They know how to live off of the land, but I still have a lot to learn. The resources to keep just my family of four fed and safe would be daunting for any extended time.

    My family would expect me to go home and if I didn't, I think they'd come get me :)

    We've been here since the beginning...we'll be here thru to the end :D

    Down to the corner of Martin Luther King and Caesar Chavez. It's probably very safe downtown. :D:D TJ

    My family was at Goliad and San Jacinto. We need to meet for a beer somewhere, sometime.

    You won't need it where you're at. There is enough deer there to live a lifetime on. No need to even hunt them, best I remember, they just walk right up to you...

    I envy you that are in the country. Living in the Burbs doesn't offer up a lot of targets (for food, that is). It would be shear terror. No law, no electricity, no hospitals. I'm not looking forward to that day. TJ

    I moved where I am over 10 yrs ago for that reason . We are now known and part of the area we live in .So no longer a outsider . People around here very self sufficient and hunters and fisherman.
    I will stay here with the family and neighbors. We are way of the main road and be a while before the city folk find way here.

    I see you've already got a head start on that "community" Carver !!

    Let me know how "hilling" small grains works out !

    I'll stand by my original statement. Most of the "SHTF" scenarios/solutions I've come across won't work at any level above stone age primitivism ! >MW

    Even at stone age primitivism you're warm in the winter, cool in the summer. You are eating, sleeping, and having sex. What more do you want..... Wall Mart?
