Hello ATS! This is my first real thread, so forgive me if I don't do this right. Also, I want to apologize in advance, this is going to be pretty
long. I need/want your feedback on something that happened to me a couple weeks ago. I don't really know what to think of it. It's highly likely
that it was just a vivid day dream and nothing more, but something about it just does not sit right with me. Anyways, I've rambled enough.
In the words of Mr. Monk: Here's how it happened...
A few weeks ago I was driving home from work, the same route I've been taking for about 6 months now. All of a sudden I start having this incredibly
vivid and detailed day dream. I don't know what year I was in during my day dream. I just know that it is a few years in the future. My children were
a little older than they are now, but I don't know how much older. If I would have to guess I would say that, in my day dream, they were around the
ages of 5 or 6.
In my dream, I am in the mountains of Pennsylvania. I own a piece of land there. It is approximately 1 football field wide and 2 long. At the back of
the property is a small river. On either side of the property are thick woods. The front of the property runs up to a small asphalt road. Across the
street are more trees, and after about 200 yards the land begins to slope upwards to the top of a large hill.
My wife and I have a house built and are completely off the grid for power and water. Our home is powered using a combination of solar, wind and
hydroelectric. The house resembles an old fashioned farm house. Complete with wrap around front porch. The house is two stories and made of wood. The
house is not painted; it is a dark brown wood color. Probably stained or treated. The windows have wooden shutters that are painted white. The house
is located towards the middle of the property and centered between the middle and left most side of the property.
My wife's cousin, a former Marine, and his wife are living on our property. They have a small house towards the front of the property. I don't know
what it looks like; I just know that it is there. I never actually see it.
My wife's cousin, we will call him Rick (not his real name), also knows that something bad is going to happen soon. We both know that
society/civilization as we know it is about to end. We being preparing.
We start by building a wall around the property. We build the wall using cinder block. The wall is about 4 feet deep and 10 feet high. The first 5 to
6 feet of cinder block are reinforced with concrete that has been poured in the holes of the blocks. The outside of the wall, facing the road, we
cover with rock. It looks like a wall you would see outside an old mansion. The wall surrounds all 4 sides of the property. In the front wall is a
large solid metal gate. The gate is arched and about 6 ft wide and 8 ft tall. The gate consists of two equal size "doors" that open outward. There
are similar doors on the left, right and back walls only slightly smaller. The left, right and back walls also have average sized personnel doors,
also made of solid metal. The top of the wall is made so someone can walk along it. Ladders and stairs are built and installed to allow access to the
top of the wall. Along the top of the wall, on the outward facing sides, smaller walls are built to keep whoever is walking along the wall from
falling off. It is also meant to provide concealment and protection in case of an attack. At all four corners of the wall a small guard tower is
built. Each one is fitted with bright flood lights that allow the area outside the walls to be lit up at night. Additional flood lights are placed at
the halfway points of the left and right walls, since they are twice as long as the front and back walls.
This is where my first day dream ended, with the completion of the walls surrounding my property. I didn't think much of it at the time. It just
seemed like an oddly vivid day dream and nothing more.
