Speaking from a financially challenged position, it doesnt look as black as its painted and Im assuming the american sub-poverty line people will be
much the same most places.
We always had to do with no AC and most of the time any heating was minimal, just ask the pensioners who died every year in their homes. Dietary
requirements are much more frugal, being more noodles and sausage against Filet Mignon?
Dont know how we are going to keep the wine at the right temp though. Remember the tramp in Day After Tomorrow? "Always something to eat in the
trash", not quite tht far but most would be grateful for what they can scavenge, the young ones will be too busy squeeling Eeewwe! NFWay! Or OMG
Here in the UK we dont have the arms question to fret over, but thats going to set 'protectors' against 'Looters'.
Should things get all Denzel Washington, I would have to consider the 'out' option if offered as a last resort from the govt. Preppers do have a head
start, those who could afford that. But for us mere mortals we would have to look at the budget option. Hand tools you can use and spares to trade
etc. I heard a Yugoslavian guy who sorted out some refillable gas lighters and a way to refill them, that gave him a valued and renewable resource.
Home brew water filtering = you can supply/trade potable water.
Old type Handcart = you provide a working transport system for water, firewood, food supplies.
Firewood = have you any idea how much your local park is going to be attacked right from the start?
Large well built and straight men = essential security for your your growing family.
The Ham Radio buff = comms for contact bewteen groups re available resources. (most of these guys are aware of the need for hardening against EMP
Just check on YT how some are surviving in Detroit outlands, other places will be the same, if the can get by, so can you. And YOU need only survive,
you dont need to score drugs, drink etc So the Walking Dead should thin out quicker.
I just hope Ive gone a little 'Chicken Little' and that Ill die on schedule in a few years or so.
