Default Dollar Collapses Tomorrow - Now What?

I was just curious as to what some plans are if the dollar suddenly collapses? Do you pull out what cash you have and use it for TP? Do you use it for fire because dollars are cheaper than fire wood like in Germany during hyperinflation? What's the plan?

Company stocks will be a bargain. I will borrow all these inflated dollars I can get and add to my current investments. If my Grand Fathers had done that during the Depression I would be a rich Big Game hunter.
Problem is they ran scared and voted for FDR.

Pack up the kids and BOB,s and head north like gas through a funnel and eggs through a hen. I'm 15 minutes from downtown and would definitely not stay to see what happens next.

I've got a few Euros. Some Gold and Silver never hurt.

At the end of the world, I'll do a couple of things I've always been curious about. Screw a goat. Eat someone. You get the idea.

Now that's a plan! If civilization collapses then you're not out of anything because the money was worthless anyway, but odds are civilization isn't going to collapse because the dollar crashes. There have been many many currency crashes and life went on.

That's just a really good practical approach to dealing with a bad situation. Be patient and turn lemons into lemon aid. I'll have to keep that in mind.
