I can bug out kinda quick, I really don't have a proper vehicle for that, I look cool in an urban area but I stick out like a sore thumb everywhere else.  I may just take my fancy rims off and buy a used 4x4 pick up.

With the kids, I need a new place to dwell.  I am gonna try a place with a population of less than 2k nearby.  I have been working on them for a couple months getting them ready to do the move, and they are ready to accept that TEOTWAWKI has basically already happened after their dad passed.  He was a natural hunter/fisher/gatherer/farmer/warrior.  I thought I would never have to worry about this stuff!

Its good to know that there are others that have forged this path, and we are not alone.  I appreciate your words of support and encouragement.  Gotta get busy!

Deliver:

You are correct. Invisibility has tremendous value. I don't know where you are so my comments may have little value to you. Don't fix on a population number rather look for a community that has fused/bonded in a way that promises mutual support and offers a window for your expertise/services. A strong community is based on the interdependence of its members as well as economic independence inasmuch as possible.

I'd say get rid of the wheels and "trade down". It is bad policy to project an image of economic independence. Makes you look fat and as others on this board have said, "if you look like food you will be eaten".

Greetings all! Sorry to be checking in late from behind the enemy lines in NYC.

I ran into Mr. Rawles when I downloaded his shareware novel. The rest is history.

JW,R- hope you read this. I could not access your email address because I do not use microsoft outlook/outlook express. Oh well.
Regarding Bill's Escape from Chicago letter on 06/11/09,
James, Thanks for the valuable work you do. I believe it will make a big difference for the better. And soon.

Regarding Bill's Escape from Chicago letter, he says that your neighbors will be coveting your food, which is
probably true. The wife and I have discussed the subject of turning away others when we have food and they don't.

Obviously, we WILL turn away dangerous-looking types, but otherwise, we have decided to share our food. We have
more rice than anything else, and have figured that we will share that, and not much else. Rice will keep body and
soul together, without tempting our guests to stay and eat our food any longer than necessary. I got the idea from
Barry Farber's suggestion "Let them eat beans and rice", in which he urged that the federal government eliminate
welfare, but give out free beans and rice (uncooked) to anyone who is needy. Keep up the good work. ;-]

Apparently I a havent posted enough to start a new thread and there isn't a subject from Survivalblog about food storage so I am leaving it here and I do not know if anyone has posted this on this site but shelfreliance.com is giving away a Harvest 72 storage rack. http://www.shelfreliance.com/blog/index.php/2009/06/15/free-friday-bringing-harvest/#respond. the more hoops you jump through the better your chances of winning.

HI,

I'm currently in Central Texas but am in the process of purchasing property in Maine, and I'm looking forward to getting back there.

Hm,  looks like we have a whole bunch more folks in PA than we used to,  which is nice.  You guys feel free to drop me a line if you're into it.

Am new to the survivalist mindset but am compelled to begin preparations to ensure a future for our grandchildren. Right now, we are begining to get our "head to the hills" small cabin ready to be lived in if tshtf, on a limited budget. We are in Vermont and are  unable to move west so it is nice to see that there are other Easteners here who also will be surviving!

SB reader from Arkansaw (yeehaw)  haha

I've been reading SB for only a couple weeks but it's now one of my regular daily stops on the i-net.  I spent most of the weekend reading through the archives and really appreciate all the information found there.  I'm looking forward to getting to know some of the folks from SB :)

A little about me ... I'm a female Truck Driver who teams w/her SO.  We have been in the process of preparing but things have, unfortunately, had to take a seat on the back burner due to some medical issues my SO had to deal with a couple months ago.  Fortunately we've been back on the road long enough now that we've caught up with all the "past-due" stuff and are starting to pull ahead again.  I'm planning on getting "The "Rawles Gets you Ready" preparedness course" as soon as I can afford it.  I guess I'm on the right path when it comes to books since I noticed I have quite a few of the books on the "recomended reading" list! :D

Anyway, Hi Everyone!   :hello:

Hey all, I'm a newbie -- originally from the beautiful state of Oregon, now serving in the US Army in Alaska.  Since I was 15, I've had a survivalist mentality for preparedness and self-reliance (part of the reason I joined the army in the first place was to learn some more skills).  Coming back into the swing of things and trying to learn more... found this place.
