    Adding, most metropolitan areas in this country, have been allowed to purposefully degenerate into “shi*t holes”, by their Democratic Party Plantation Masters. Is that racist to acknowledge those facts and that reality? Of course not. The corruption is the same, be it in Haiti, African continent, or, our own major metro areas. Same group of political pustules screwing the populace financially and selfishly, for their own personal enrichment.

    Trust her. My wife is as well kind, careing, and trusting....but she is also observant, vindictive and honey badger mean if anything is a danger to her family. If that's your wife too then I'm sure that the change of disposition that would occurs in a shtf would shock you....it's the Momma bear we fear the most. For now there isn't as much need to fear that jogger...when there is she'll knee cap that sucker in the blink of an eye.

    I'm currently r and d on a sub5 lb, 4 season sleep/shelter kit, supplemented by 2 lbs of "extra" clothing (beyond normal summer wear) Starting with polypro longjohns, (buttons and loops to keep them from separating at the waist in back) polypro socks, balaclava, neck gaiter, and gloves. Goretex cammies, wool socks, shemaugh. A highly modified SOL escape bivvy (mummy shape, velcro seams, removable hood with drawstring, a foot wider at the shoulders, a foot longer and a drawstring at the neck. Next, a polypro bag, snaps all down the seam, next a "heavy duty" space blanket bag, 7x8 ft when unfolded, snaps all down the seam. Then the bugnetting bag (just to have a place to put it, really, in cold weather) snaps all down the side, and then the clear plastic (well, with fiberglass threads reinforcing it) bag., 8x7 feet when opened up. It of course is present in case I need a super shelter with a fire in front of the clear plastic. The Leval II A soft armor boxer shorts (made from 2 vests) and II vest offer a lot of insulation and padding if I have to sleep on the ground, but normally, i prefer to sleep in the hammock, made of 3" monofilament fish netting, 6 x 100 ft of it, folded back on itself 3x. A roll of heavy-duty aluminum wrap is part of the kit, to front a stick wall (2x4 ft) on the far side of the fire. The super shelter can handle any temps at which you can handle getting the firewood. This setup can all be worn like a poncho, if need be. It's modifiable to handle any sort of weather/terrain. None of it is harmed by geting wet, and there's no zippers to jam or break, no stuffings to fall out, either. The armor adds 5 lbs, but considering that it is likely to save your life if shtf, it's worth having along. Rolled up, this assembly is stiff enough to serve as a frame for my daypack, saving 1/2 lb or so. If I'm out on the ice, or if it's really cold and I'm moving, or cold rain/wind is the order of the day, then the heavy duty space blanket/bag is kept ready, by itself. Then, if I fall thru the ice or get wet in some other way, I can shed the wet clothes, deploy the big bag, and then add the other layers as needed, while inside of the bag. Since it featurs snaps, I can stick out feet or hands as needed, to get a fire going, move to a more sheltered area, etc.

    in towns and cities, nobody will have any water after a week or so, and most wont have any after a couple of days. When the power shuts off, so does the water treatment and pumps. So almost nobody is going to have the option of staying in towns or cities. They will be forced to go where the water is. It will be too damned dangerous to go back and forth, so they'll say wherever they moved-to, and only move on to find food to loot.

    Here’s an idea for folks who are in a extremely limited budget.Say $50 maybe less, if you need to light up most of the rooms in you dwelling. This is for having lights & nothing else, no cooking, no fridge, no fan, no air conditioning, no washer & dryer, etc etc. One can purchase walkway solar lights from dollar stores, Home Depot, etc. These items cost from $3-5 each, In my area. You leave them outside to charge during the day time, then at night time, bring them indoors. Put as many as you want to brighten up a room or just one for low lighting. For $50 one could get at least a dozen, if not more of these walkway solar lights. They are cheap but effective. Put one on the outside of your bug out bag for charging in the day time, At night you’ll be a beacon of light. Now that you know, go get one or a dozen . Lights for everyone! https://www.google.ca/search?q=walkway+solar+lights&client=safari&channel=ipad_bm&prmd=isnv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwixmbyf7OfXAhUs9YMKHZ3CCbgQ_AUIESgB&biw=1024&bih=666&dpr=2#imgrc=JbEKQYHeezrUFM:
