  1. Hi Jack,

    It feels like summer is here. I think the grasshoppers are going back to there play!

    I mean, the propaganda machine is in full swing, telling us that we are turning the corner with the economy. “The consumer confidence is up”.

    I think you should talk about taking advantage of summer to split wood and stock the basement.

    I think many people came to your site looking for last minute preping ideas, when they thought the day of reckoning was eminent. Now that the Swine Flu seams to have been an overreaction (for now), and the guvment says the econ is A-OK, we should grab the credit card and go to Macy’s (if your mall still exists).

  2. It is not easy to prepared a good bug out. If it is due to economy crisis then the slide would be gradual, as it reach a mid level whereby we don’t need to evacuate but society would have broken down to 3rd world level. There would be theft of everything, even the fencing would be torn down to sell as scrap. So it is very difficult to defend a bug out, the cost of making it ready & protected would be prohibitive. It would be easier to stake out a piece of forest to retreat into during a crisis. If we mark out a forest & carefully plan for all eventualities then it could easily be defended. It need a hundred fully train/equip soldiers to catch a guerrilla.
