A.N.T.S. • Re: What Do You Expect To Achieve in a GDS

May 12, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

Morning Cadit….

You seem to think a little more in line with me even asking this question….

I’ve noticed a lot of folks here that ADAMANTLY disagree with this philosophy here about helping others and thriving in a group(Strength in numbers) vs Spidey-Hole tactics for fear(a real possibility that needs to be planned for) of drawing attention to yourself,and family and becoming a target in GDS(or anything for that matter) with your preps….IMHO(To each their own and none are wrong on how they determine to proceed)

I do struggle with this myself but as a “go-to” guy for friends, family, and strangers now in daily life actually caring to help folks in general.
(one of the very reasons I joined ANTS in the first place…I thought long and hard before clicking join as it’s a serious commitment to help others when you also might be in distress at the same time in your area)

I just cant see myself shut up and locking EVERYONE out in a survival situation vs identifying and dealing with threats as they pop up while helping where you can with contingencies in place for the inevitable attention this will draw to us….

I can only say I will assess and act according to an actual individual situation when I find myself in it……I do have a plan in action already for community help(no matter how small of a group) but whether it goes into effect will depend in the nature of the situation at that specific time and the volatility in the Neighborhood/City/State.

My GENERAL advice with this in mind can be only one of 3 things …..

#1…Build the network now with neighbors, not after the event…..This is the highest risk level IMO of opening yourself up as a target but if its a real group you’ll have the strength in numbers immediately with the biggest ability to have an effect to controlling the outside factors after the event.(way too many things to go into here for building an effective group)…..This one for sure makes you “That guy down the street” and in my opinion will not really ever work unless you had at least a 75% “On Board” in your area….Too high of a security risk. Again, IMHO.

#2….Maybe bring a VERY few family/friends and have a plan of action on preps for now including a designated leader or decision committee and FIRM, SET, Pre-Established ROE to act within…Area to consolidate resources after, observing HEAVILY while maintaining discretion the reactions and deterioration or your surroundings(time and depth) and taking a very standoff approach in community involvement while offering assistance where needed while maintaining the core group as the #1 priority and deciding where to get involved and more importantly, where not to…..You can expand outwards or retract inwards based on intelligence gathered for your groups decision as you go…But remember that once you open the door getting involved so to speak there’s no going back…..There’s always a bug out option/determination that should already be set in place in the ROE plans of said core group.

#3….Spidey-Hole it up!!! ……….Don’t get involved, Keep to yourself, (Censored word. I’m a Potty mouth) ’em all, you’re on your own Skippy, I told you so/you should have listened to me, etc., etc., etc…..And again, there’s nothing wrong with this…Each person has the right to do EXACTLY as they deem for themselves and their family as long as they do no harm to those that do not try to harm you first.

Me? ….I’m #2….
This just seems like the only way to live with myself and who I am if it ever hits in my lifetime while not screaming “hit me first!!!” for everyone to hear now….Whatever happens from there with any decisions I make at the time including to those I’m responsible for has already been taken into account with this decision…

I wish you luck with whatever way you decide is best for you and your family….. You’re a “good guy” in my book Cadit for even asking the question…. :thumbsup:

A.N.T.S. • What Do You Expect To Achieve in a GDS

May 12, 2017 Cadit 0

Hi Fellow ANTS:

What is it that you expect to achieve to accomplish in a Grid Down situation? To survive, Strive, or exist. It is my hope that through my understanding of things and my abilities I will be able to carve out a means to survive in the beginning. With friends and comrades, to do more than survive, but strive also. Each helping and providing for each other in a communal type manner.

Each having their own, but sharing in their excess, and helping others who need help increasing their production for the good of all. Maintain law and order within the group. The settling of matters and issues that will crop up when people live close together. To work toward the survival of the group, therefore insuring the survival of myself and family.

A.N.T.S. • Gardening

May 12, 2017 Cadit 0

Hello MY Fellow ANTS:

I have been doing a little gardening and fighting off varmints who like what I have planted. I recently put up an electric fence to help keep out the unwanted and uninvited guest in my mini farm, about 12′ X 25′ in my backyard.

I know there must be some gardeners or small farers out there that can offer some advice, while the fence seems to be doing the job, I still want more ammo to work with. Being this is my third attempt to grow a few vegies so far this year, and not for my invaders of the greens. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. :o

A.N.T.S. • Re: Technicians License

May 12, 2017 Cadit 0

Greetings Everyone: From the last time I posted here, I see a lot of lookers but no comments. I have and am a member of The American Redoubt and AmRRON group. The communications that John Jacob Schmidt created is a most dire needed means of staying in touch in a grid down or emergency situation. Alone or in a group, with out communications, you’re dead in the water.

You have no idea what’s coming your way, where or which way to go/retreat. You’re the injured animal and the lions have surrounded you. Without communications; you’re blind and deaf in a world that’s gotten more dangerous. Are you sure you want to try and live that way. I’ve had old timers say; I don’t want to be on a list. Wakeup my friend, you’re already on their list. Your cell phone, all calls are recorded, emails; all emails are copied. Credit Card purchased, they have that too. So; realize, you are all ready on their list. If you want to hide tings you do, you have to think outside the box on that my friend. Purchases of items you don’t want people to know. Check or credit card, they know what you got. Cash, cash, cash; this is the only way to keep people out of your business. But don’t go pulling large amounts out of you banking accounts, this alerts them that something is going on. A little slowly at a time, build up what you need to get what you want.

So; you need to get your Technician’s license and do it now. Learn how to operate it, how to communicate with it. It’s not as easy as you think, because if you don’t know what to do and how to do it, then you’re perceived as the enemy and foe, and they will not answer you. So; get those license, and learn, NOW. :shock:

A.N.T.S. • Re: Power outage

May 12, 2017 Cadit 0

Just heard that the power outages were the result of a CEMP. NASA and other organizations confirmed that it was a large CEMP that hit across the USA. They think that the areas that went down were due to poor grid conditions and grid load. A friend of mine who works in upper management and a fellow prepper, informed me that if not for the quick actions of personnel, it may have been even larger power outages. The opening of lesser switches that prevented the continual load demand were opened to keep a cascade effect from taking place. At the time we spoke there were six locations that was effected.

Also; the power companies and the government believe that a much larger CEMP is thought to hit the earth sometime this year, where it may hit has not been disclosed as yet. But the thing about it is: they know this stuff and keep it from us. :caution:

May 5, 2017 Cadit 0

That was going to be my next question. Is it going to be ruff camping, or camper and RV’s also? If its all the above, will it be separated my camping style, tents in one area, campers in another and RV in still yet another? Or are we missing the whole point, a SHTF camping? Tents would still be used even then, but how about bathrooms and such.

I’m probably over thinking this, I do that now that I older, :|
