Getting to know your neighbors is just as, if not more important, living in a rural area. It's something we've been a little lax in, that really
needs to happen. I think some of it is because we're still working on the interior of the home, getting it painted the way we want, etc. to have
folks over more often. We know some, but we need to know more.
What we do have, is a group of friends who just happen to have various skills that will help in a SHTF scenario. They all love the ranch as much as we
do, and come over often, etc. A good group is the key to survival in any kind of scenario, if you ask me. A group has a much better chance of getting
by, and putting up a defense against others who may try to take what we have. Also, nobody can know it all, and we have a pretty good team, and get
along with each other well.
The commute is the big challenge though. For everyone (me included, if at work), getting to the ranch takes about an hour or less normally. In a SHTF
scenario, who knows? (may even have to walk).
