Nope, if I'm going, I'm going.
I have set up my life so that day-to-day I am using technology that frees me from the usual corporate/urban necessities.
I live in a rural area, of a free democratic country.
I am independent of petrol, the power grid & town water supply.
I have several connections to the internet by different methods. I have satellite radio & TV (but they are not really essentials).
I have cash stored as well as gold & barter goods.
My house is reasonably strongly built, in an elevated position and proofed against cyclone winds and earthquake.
Everything in my house is doubly insulated.
The sewage system is bio-composting and can survive for months without power (I have recently had proof of this when my son inadvertently left it switched off for two months).
Water is stored in two underground tanks (total capacity 11,000 gallons).
Cooking is via gas (stored in two LPG tanks that will last me at least another two years).
I have a supply of meds, food, batteries and water for at least a year, possibly two.
I have a bug out bag & escape plans from my place of work (in the city) which don't use the motorways (i'll use the rail tracks which are straight, level and won't have traffic issues when the SHTF).
And I have set up a network of similarly equipped and prepared friends.
It just makes sense to be self supporting.edit on 15/4/2011 by chr0naut because: (no reason given)

I am just curious to hear from those that are NOT taking steps to prepare for whatever may or may not be coming.
