Obviously, most have seen this coming, whether we realized it in the past month(lol, newbies) or since january(when I started to stockpile).

But...the real question is, have you trained.

Have you done daily loadouts? Cardio? Ran a few miles a day with a 100 pound pack?

This is a war people, we all now what we should have been doing.

I know, you know, but has anyone actually done it.....

I'm sure many of you have, but I crapped the bed and spent the last few months watching movies and drinking. While I'm "ready" i'm far from ready, but my sense of humor is sharpened to a razors edge, I've been working on that for decades.

So while I fail all the other prerequisites, atleaast I'll have a rapist whit about my failures to entertain those I let down in the coming situation to come.

I can also make balloon animals, spoiler, they are all largely phallic in nature.

But what's your regret about this scenario? Everyone has a few.

The only food issue I have is that given all the prep, I love me some instant mashed(loaded patato).

I ran out weeks ago, I should have bought like 200 packs of those.......

Plus about 20 lbs of chedder.

I could weather anything as long as I had instant mash with some chedder to add.

Let's give it a few months. Right? Me, I will be able to pay my bills and so on. Have about 6 months of food, water filters. ways to keep the home warm without gas, lacking on power generation though. Hollow point bullets. Many many hollow point ammo's. I mean if this goes on past July then I will really start freaking out.

I agree, i've got the money end covered til the end of the year or longer.

I'm just wondering that when a few more months come, if people like me don't regret wasting the first 6 when it comes to getting ready for the necessary athletic ability needed.

I'm going full physical prep in the last few weeks.

Well I'm getting pretty good at growing food. Been at it for five years, always growing something I can eat, even when it was only herbs on an apartment patio sill. Now I'm yeilding better fruit from tomatoes and peppers as well as vegetables like onions. I have gotten a bit better this year at higher germination rates. I don't always have the room to grow them all now so I do have to pull the weaker ones when the first few get to three inches. Just my preferable number when culling.

I'm going to have a tomato bananza though in the summer and a complement of lettuce and spinach. As long as the soil stay wet with a timed drip irrigator I can push them greens later into the season. Collards are pretty easy to grow, but I don't have much affinity for them. I grow them for my mother at her place then she takes care of them.

Beans practically grow themselves, but you got to move them around from season to season.

This isn't the end. Just a preppers wet dream.

Hardly the scenario i would consider bugging out over.

If the bombs start dropping, that's another story.

I closed the gates on my property on March 17th.

Haven't been out since and really have no desire to... I'm in gardening mode.

Have my own water and septic, make my own electricity but don't really need that except for an internet connection.

Kill my own meat, grow my own veggies, make my own wine, have a huge orchard, raise chickens.

My current bills run about $400 a month, which means I'm set till around 2047.

I'm back to working on a book I've always wanted to write.

I will run out of tequila some time next spring but I've been playing around with recipes with my still.

The only regret I currently have is that I didn't start this part of my life a year ago.

I knew about the gate closing, that was me out there on the 19th banging away.

The rest is good news, about what I figured.

Who needs the outside world anyway....I'ts just full of stupid apes(humans)....

This obviously isn't a nuclear bomb.

But bombs come in many forms....Behold....the "stupidity bomb".....

I have two 5 lb bags of beans. And a lot of Velveeta.

Mixed with the rich people me and my communist friends drag out of their homes I think that should last a while.

The best part is some of us long time readers know that's only partially a joke.....

Eat the rich.....


But can you smoke the rich????

I'd totally stop by for some bean and cheese bowls though, everything is better drenched in velveeta....

I try to stay in Elk shape or my version of it. I love to hunt and I mean love it. That said, I've never gone out west to hunt. My dream is to head out west and tag an elk. I try to stay physically fit enough just incase something miraculous happens and I get that opportunity. Until then, I'll stick to whitetail, hogs, and predators.

As far as carrying 100lbs rucks. Those days are behind me. If I need to move 100lbs over a mile, I won't be running.

*Edit* One of the things that piss me off the most about this virus is the timing. Why couldn't we be sitting late October/early November? Quarantine at Deer camp would be AMAZING.

I've been elk hunting once, long time ago, in wyoming.

That really is a level of fitness for those that don't understand. Never got one, but a 10 hour day covering miles and more importantly, hundreds of feet of elevations in the hills.

It's no walk in the park.

ETA: I spent a fair amount of time out west, in the dakota's and Montana hunting deer, that was "plains" hunting compared to the hills of wyoming. In a way I'm glad I didn't get one. Being 5 miles in was hard enough, I can't imagine quartering an elk and dragging it out from there.

Yeah, it's not the miles that worry me. It's the steep climbs and that elevation coming from Arkansas. Even if I never make it out there, being fit helps me travel further in the woods than other hunters down here. I have the walls to prove it.

Trophy

Your image doesn't load, but I get what you are saying.

Walking a few miles on flat ground is one thing, but a few miles while going down hundreds of feet and then up is exhausting. It's weird, how going down at first glance seems to be "easier". I'm sure the mountain folk are laughing at us, but I thought that at first too.

First attempt to upload a picture. Strange because I see it in my post and in your quote. I'm not tech savvy.

You may have done it right, I routinely fail to see avatars and uploaded pictures on this site.

If you uploaded it to your account and posted it, it's probably fine for other members to see.

I live in Montana and have about 60 or so elk that spend the spring and fall on my property.

The last bull elk I harvested was shot behind my woodshed... range was about 20 feet.

We picked it up with the forklift, gutted it and let it hang until we were ready to butcher it.

Remind me this fall about your fantasy.

Although I don't think you would need to be in any kind of physical shape to do that.
