I'm stuck in my house in the middle of my city of about 1.2 million. Maybe I can fortify it, a bit. It's an acre, but the half of the property that
has a fence is a crappy, broken ass wood fence. I can't afford to sell the house, as I'm upside down in the mortgage. (isn't everyone?)
I was thinking... maybe a 3rd world country would be best, since they already dont have electricity. Oooh, or what about the Amish?
Joking aside, I am starting to stock up some supplies for a few contingencies. My main concern is most people I know think my line of thinking on this
is nuts, and i'm being an alarmist. I don't agree... It's not that I'm crying wolf, I'm just saying that wolves exist, and COULD attack. Whether
that's the fall of the economy or warfare or our sun blasting an emp that knocks out the power grid for...a week? a year? ever?
I have a brick house, with 3 seperate buildings on the property. I estimate my property could sustain about a dozen to 18 people if we all collect
rain water, plant vegetables and have 3 on security . I'm getting estimates on rolling shutters, and doing some other things too. I've got a gun
and I'm a great shot. But I need about 10 more of me to make this work. What hope is there for people like me who have nowhere to go, and no one on
*Please don't reply with how screwed I am. I'm on this forum to get help and advice, not to feel even more helpless than I do. Thank you.
