When it comes to survival, your first mistake is also your last one.

I've thought a bit about the land issue, and ask myself this...
If, in the SHTF, situation X scenario, sure, lots of land is great. But wouldn't you expect if the gov were to have a list of individuals owning relatively large parcels of land, they would be the first target?
So your tellin me.. that when it all comes crashing down.. all I have to do is comb the country till I find the neat little estate with a big ol house.. and there will be some snivling weasel of a stock broker sitting on a pile of gold? To easy... simply to easy.. If he's lucky though for a can of speghetti o's a day I'll let him stay and tend the crops.
and nuclear armageddon? forget it. it would close "the store" for the global players - right - it ain't gonna happen, folks.
