“Gangs are a direct product of poverty.” That is NOT true, my boyfriend is a nurse and told me that the police departments he deals with in the ER daily actually have gangs (factions) in them; its about POWER, not poverty.

One thing to consider is to set up a barter network BEFORE the SHTF. A lot of people in my area will barter with each other. The great thing about it is that you have a network of trusted barter “partners” already in place so can reduce/eliminate the awkward “developing trust” phase.

I just worked out a livestock barter for next year…pullets (young laying hens) that I will hatch out/raise for goat kids. My barter partner will get new laying hens without needing to buy them OR brooder equipment, and I will get her unwanted goat kids (she just wants the milk from the doe). If the kids include a doeling, then I have a future “milker”, while a buckling will be raised for the meat. After slaughter, my barter partner will also get some of the meat.
It works for both of us, and we already have developed a trusted barter relationship for later down the road.

I disagree on a couple of things …. and everything depends on the type of SHTF and the local situation ….

you never can be complacent about your preps – you always need to be re-supplying and upgrading your situation – taking advantage when it presents itself – if nothing else it keeps the OPSEC going post-SHTF ….

bartering can begin immediately after the SHTF hits home … you have neighbors with freezers full of food that will be going to waste – if you’re prepped up for preserving meat there’s an opportunity …. neighbors bugging out? – opportunity to gain intel, barter for any SHTF type items and discuss you doing some “house watching” (get some formal authority & the keys if it feels correct) ….

this early bartering falls into the category of being adaptive and being pro-active – again you can”t be complacent that you’re all set and can cruze thru THIS particular SHTF – this SHTF suddenly takes a sharp turn and it’s a whole new SHTF ….

The city was surrounded for 1 year and in that city actually it was SHTF situation. We were all thrown into this and our allies were our enemies from one day to the next. Today I’m prepared but I learned a lot going through this hard time”.

I recently read that Norway has bunkers for 2 million people which leaves about 2.8 million left out for a major event. The leaker said that there was a “shoot to kill” order for anyone who survived the event because only the people with skills would be saved. With Russia doing bunker drills for 40 million people and China building cities and forcibly relocating their populations, you have to wonder what the US is doing for us. I believe Obama deliberately kept gang members in this country to cause more mayhem and death for survivors and bought enough ammunition for his army to kill off any survivors when he and his friends come out of the bunkers. We will have a big problem with gangs but our neighbors who would be willing to sell their souls for a drink of water will probably be a worse problem and the Government FEMA round up force will be a more immediate threat.

You would need an electric solar powered-think quiet- rubber wheeled, V blade in front for zombies. Forward searching radar for oncoming trains. Quick dismount feature if train approaching. Painted on top to look like railroad rails/track in case of searching planes. Eco friendly toilet and plenty of clean underwear. Fast reverse option if train coming and no place to get off like on a bridge.

I’ll just stay home.

My dad used to ride either “Model A’s or Model T’s” on railroad tracks as a young lad in the 1930’s. The tires could be squeezed inside of the rails. Of course, he didn’t tell me until he was sure I was out of my wild years. Actually, I never outgrew my wild years.

I had a pretty sudden revelation while driving today. I observed a CXS Railroad chevy tuck driving on the tracks. They have those nifty railway wheels that can drop down to ride the rails or go back up to ride the road. Think this would make a good shtf vehicle? When the trains stop, it sure would be better to travel the rails than the roads.

Back in the late nineties, there was some alarm when we saw militia groups starting to use the SALUTE format.

The groups would send a young man to enlist. He would go to boot camp and maybe some infantry school. Then he would pop positive for marijuana, get discharged, mostly administration separation, and then take the skills back home.

I have traveled all over the US for many years now and my husband traveled all over the world, neither of us has been threatened or robbed yet. My DD and I went from Indiana to California, we have met, seen, and talked to nice people. Folks that are like us, willing to help, friendly, and good folks. I’m not naïve enough to think everyone is good but the good do outweigh the bad, thankfully.

You just have to watch out for those folks that use “alternative facts”, that’s the best I have heard yet, man a creative way of describing lying.

Oh well, I’m careful but not paranoid and not hiding in some hole somewhere, with stashes for 20 years put away. I might not last as long but in what I’m seeing in our futures, that might be for the best.

So all of you, enjoy whatever your guy thinks, I’m sure he will see, try and force it all on us.

So night night from Vegas, trip going well, just poor wifi most places.
