Get ready

Guys, I kept silent for last couple months, but I am worried. Very worried. It looks very similar with the way communists got power in Eastern Europe. You may know already how that worked; if not, I think you should learn.

My grandfather said, "Always use your head!".
I told him, "I want to pound nails!"
He said, "Best use a hammer instead."

Don't get scared. Get prepared.

I'm working on lists, sorting through things and putting together kits for bug in/out scenarios. Plastic food storage containers work well for organizing items. Fortunately, being out and away from most of the foolishness gives me more time and probably more warning.

Be safe.

Living out in the country does have its benefits. More time, more warning... Also, your neighbors are a little more likely to be prepared, as well, and have a rather self-reliant mindset, so neighbors are more likely to band together, as opposed to turn on each other.

Bug out?
In my country we had people who bug out in the mountains. They lasted couple years. Eventually all were captured and killed.
It's not working.

Going where? I see USA as last refuge. If USA falls, everything falls.

We ought not be going anywhere, we should be preparing to fight, because yes, it IS coming, and it is either fight, lose and die, or fight and win. The alternative of life on a bended knee is unbearable, as it should be to any real American.

AS a motorcycle rider I always had zip lock bags that kept my gear dry. Brother was going to Europe to go and tour by back pack. I said let me pack for you. He and his buddy go to the hostels. They walked quite a bit and it did rain often. They get to the hostel for the evening. He opens my packed backpack and everythig was dry!! His buddy, not so much!
