    Depression

    I heard a guy talking on TV about things you'd want to have on hand if things got really bad. One thing he said that made sense was to have all of your cash reserves on hand in one dollar bills. If things get bad enough, a one dollar bill will be worth the same as a twenty because most people won't be able or willing to make change. Dry food stocks (rice, beans, etc) have a real enemy in humidity. Unless you can be sure that you can keep them dry, you may be better off with canned foods. Ammo, of course, will be necessary but you'd better have it on hand now as it will be one of the hardest things to get your hands on if things turn ugly. Having said this, I have not personally made any survival preparations other than my normal hurricane readiness. I work with a guy that lives in Kenner. He has never been hunting in his life. He just bought himself a 223 assault rifle with 500 rounds of ammo. I'm starting to wonder if more people than I realize are making preparations for the aftermath of an economic collapse.

    Do like the Mormons, have a crap load of canned goods on hand, and have barrels of wheat and other dry storage products, including fuel. Ask a Mormon, they will tell you what you need after an absolute collapse of life as we know it.

    I've got a huge garden, river to fish in, and lots of ammo to shoot pillagers with. Not saying that I think it's going to happen, but in light of whats happening in the world right now, everyone should be prepared. Oh, I almost forgot. I also have about 50 head of cattle.

    The cities will be absolute hell holes. The country folks will close the roads into their communties and will stay organized.

    So the best thing to do is have a place in the country.

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" -- Thomas Jefferson

    Right on. My wife keeps bugging me to move to the city but I aint havin none of it. I think we are perfectly positioned where we are to ride this thing out should it happen. If you want tosee just how fast society can breakdown, just look at New Orleans after Katrina.
