now that sounds like an invitation I would not refuse!
Me? I'm fucked. (pardon the 'french'.) I draw social security disability and a veterans pension for ptsd and gulf war syndrome. When things get rough I know that will disappear. However, I am a survivor, and will get by. I have some knowledge that might come in handy, and plan on with however much time I have educating myself further in matters that will have practical application.
Also, I am lucky in that my parents have a place with ten acres that when they get older they plan on moving back to California and letting me buy from them..but if things get bad, we could always become a 'traditional' three generation family and live together in the same home..but..ACK!
In the meantime, I do have a store of food for emergencies..lived through a pretty bad ice storm my first winter in OK, so I learned that having a supply of nonperishable food on hand is a good idea for a variety of reasons. I also have some other items stored up, getting things as they occur to me..such as kerosene and lamps..batteries, etc. It's a slow process, and of course when the shit hits the fan there will be things that I won't be able to get that I hadn't thought of, and by then it will be too late, but you can't have everything...after all, where would you put it?
I know I am possibly sounding too lighthearted about this, but I do take it very seriously, however I plan on not just surviving but LIVING..and it is important to have a sense of humor if you are going to do the latter.
