We don’t take our important papers anywhere with us. We have it all in a safe location (actually we have all in 2 locations). We keep it there mostly in case of loss of something (vehicles, property, someone needs a backup copy of something or whatever).

If SHTF and the situation comes up, we can prove who we are, and that we own what we have if ROL is in place (WROL it probably won’t matter…but we can hope for some semblance of order).

I do carry specific phone numbers/addresses/email addys on my person at all times because it’s convenient (I mail a lot of stuff to some indviduals).

Good subject, but I have some questions!

Take with me as in bugging out? I am not sure I would want my entire life’s history with me on the road. I don’t even carry my real home address with me or pictures of those I care about! D.L., insurance, etc., address is a vacant lot I own! I have copies of just about everything, but they are never on me or in my home!

Why would I want all my personal information on me during a SHTF event? Better room at the FEMA camp or selection for special treatment? The less anyone knows the better! Name Rank and Number and those may be lies! Swamp

Here are some of the documents I consider important in such a situation
Driver’s License
Passport
Birth Certificate
Social Security Card
Properts Deeds
Any other types of permits (carry permits, vehicle permits, ect.)

As such it would be a good idea to make photo copies of all of the above and to store the copies somewhere safe.

That would be a neat trick around here.

We outnumber the local govt by about 700 to 1.
We got the firepower. We got the manpower.
Pass whatever legal powers, no one here to enforce it.
The advantage of a small town.

the 700 to 1? – you’re saying EVERYONE is a prepper and have food to survive the SHTF without any hand outs?

these people you are talking about will compose the posse groups that’ll be doing the gooberment’s bidding of confiscating – either that or they’ll be free lancing raiders – they’ll be praying on the weaker with or without gooberment BS emergency laws backing them up ….

you think you’ll only be facing the few LEOs currently on the force – they’ll just be the official badge out front of the civilian sheeple posse making the raid look official …

and PLEASE – don’t say something naive as hell about everyone is everyone else’s good ole’ buddy and that won’t be happening around your area ….

Sorry, I hit the wrong key.

700 to 6 is more accurate.
700 to 12 if you include the voting board. Two of those are my neighbors.
No LEO that I know of.

Out here, the vast majority of us have gardens, small livestock, large livestock. Has nothing to do with being preppers, just the way people do things around here. Lot of older folks who, growing up, that is the way it was, that is the way is.

Well, I do not have a crystal ball, tea leaves, fish guts to say how things will go in a SHTF situation. I do not think anyone else does either. I can say the relationships I have now will go a lot further than if I did not.

I do know my neighbors. We are all kinds of decent folks. Cannot say I can see any of them going all Mall Ninja Spider People like and becoming raiders.
I can say most of us would not put up with that kind of crap.

We all know out here we are on our own for the most part. We know we will not survive without helping each other.

If you will excuse me now, I am going to give a dozen eggs to my neighbor.

I look at it from a manpower perspective.
The number of men needed for a SWAT team to take on a single criminal, drug dealer, what have you. Then the support persons need for the SWAT team, additional police to surround the building, EMS etc.

Now, apply that to every single home in America. The possible armed confrontation for every single home in America. All to enforce some politician flunky idea, half baked law, or whatever.

I, for one, would not want to be a LEO put into that kind of position.
What if it is in your neighborhood, as a LEO, has to enforce that kind of confiscation?
How many of your neighbors are just going to sit back and let it happen?
As a LEO, your dog craps on your neighbors lawn on a regular basis. You have been charged with confiscation of peoples food, guns, water, what have you. Can you expect a bullet in the back from that neighbor? Your house firebombed? Wife or kids harassed, bullied or worse?

Again, I would not want to be a LEO put into that kind of position. They are people with families too.

I only have 6 days of food so I’m good.

Out here, call 911 and it would be twenty to thirty minutes before the state or sheriff arrives.
For the most part, we are on our own and we know it.

If we were to include the town’s voting board, all volunteers, our local government might be a dozen.
Of course, two of those board members are my neighbors.

One neighbor, her garage door jumped the track the other day. I helped her put it back in place.
I also gave her a dozen eggs.

im not sure about the “patriot act” and all..but yet,and even thoe i live outside a small town.there are 2 primary highways that go through here.in which i live a 1/2 mile off of one of them.so i do have some to worry about it,if martial law or whatever went into effect.on account im sure there’ll be some military passing through.and as it’s been pointed out,locale threats..then there’s the close by neighbours to think of..all of which is a concern to me..even then.mainly the neighbours..
