Great thread. My son is attending a higher-end university in VT. His tuition is over $60k a year - can you imagine getting out of school with almost a quarter million dollars' debt and just starting at the bottom of the barrel? I started working construction when I was 20, learned an incredible amount, worked my ass off, and now I have a comfortable job with zero college debt.
Yep, lay low, gather intel, keep your signature as small as possible, to the leaving and the dead. Keep an eye out for masses of people - hopefully there's a network of some kind to give you a heads up a few hours before they descend on you, so you can get a start on a secondary BOL. Run, don't stand and fight.
A major network is looking for American families who are in the planning stages of moving off the grid to a super remote location! The new documentary series will follow five families for a short time as they plan and build, showing the positive aspects of survivalist living. If you fit the description and have children 10 or older, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
