that was a great insight for those who are trying to find a reason to get prepared

 

or are not and find themselves in that situation.

 

but I hope to be well enough prepared I can hold out long enough that the herd thins out.

 

I mean that is the primary reason to prepare so you can exist without having to expose you or your family to dangers.

 

the less you have to go out the less chance of becoming a body on the side of the road.

If you are interested in this conflict, there is a very good made for TV movie titled "Shot Through the Heart" about two friends who are competition shooters. The movie begins as the conflict is starting up and Yugoslavia is breaking up, and then goes on to show the families surviving during the siege of Sarajevo. There are some survival lessons to be learned in the movie, and some good depictions of what militia action might look like if a first-world nation suffered a catastrophic government collapse.

Many died from diseases, especially from the water (two from my own family). We drank mostly rainwater, ate pigeons and even rats.

 

 

Thus the start of my business and own personnel use. Water first, then fire, food, security, and so on. There are some real realities to this article.

That is an excellent article and very well done. It follows my thinking and mindset. If I have 30 seconds and can only grab three items, it would be a gun, an extra magazine and a flashlight!

 

I sent this article to all of my close circle of friends.

 

The subject being interviewed brings up a good point about those that are alone being completely vulnerable and essentially doomed. This may not be the appropriate thread, but how many of you have had luck approaching neighbors and convincing them to get on board with your preps? What has been the most successful way to approach them? It doesn't sound like the interviewee has this issue with neighbors anymore as everyone is on the same page now.

Very interesting read. I read almost all of his entries. Interesting how some people rose up to the occasion and helped while others helped themselves. It also brought attention to the "strength in numbers" debate. It would be nice to find like-minded people but to trust people is hard these days...either you're a loonie or they are more looney than us :P
