Well, boys and girls, am in Central Virginia, upwind of DC, out in the sticks, about 600 meters beyond the sign that reads DANGER UNEXPLODED ORDNANCE DO NOT ENTER . If we get into a SHTF scenario, our plans are to call the kids home, alert the neighbors, blow the bridge, arm the claymores, and switch to the filters for the air intakes.

Seriously, we are fortunate to be in a rural community, where MOST folks have a fair ration of common sense. No, not planning to live on an exclusive diet of wild game (that is gonna get scarce REAL quick) but folks here were getting along without a lot from the outside for a long time (note to self- check quantity of salt in long term storage).

If the issue is runaway inflation, well, sux when you are buying- not as important when you are bartering. If issue is uncontrolled criminal activity, that is not wise in neighborhoods where there is frequent ownership of deer rifles, shotguns, and backhoes (keep Virginia tidy) If the issue is an out-of-control government, see preceding sentence.

Folks here were feeding their families, building and heating their homes, and making their own fun for a long time. Without foreign trade, government bailouts, or Congresscritters that can't pay their taxes. While I am not a fan of Hank Williams Jr, the song "A Country Boy Can Survive" does have a lot of truth in it.

Like I said, I live in a small rural place. Only famous person that ever came from here was over 100 years ago. Boy by the name of John Mosby. Never was a General- matter of fact, only made it to Major- but he did OK. And makes a good role model.

Things get really bad, and you're in the neighborhood, stop by for a cup. Ring the bell down at the road, and stay on the path. It was a lot of work fixing up that landscaping, and we don't want to have to replace any of it...

Well, I might have to take you up on that offer C3.

Since the Army told me they didn't want me to fly because of my back, I'm thinking about attending a local flight school for lessons in rotary aircraft

Flying from St Louis to DC is a lot faster than driving.

Got room in that pad for a chopper?

Yessir! No doubt about it.

Considering the fact that the victim is the first one at the scene of a violent crime, I believe all law abiding citizens should be armed.

No Worries Brother, we will have you escorted past the lines and hit you with a hot steak and a cold beer upon your arrival. Then hand you a sweet AR and give you your choice of "hunting" locations.

I'll have overwatch with Mjolnir. My padwan Junho will be acting as my spotter

Canebreak will be handling logistics, manning the grill and also running the primary education of the civilians we have allowed in.

Ineff will be keeping morale up and leading the planning of extended recon for recovery or all ammo, supplies and entertainment ( including movies ).

Robo - if he's there, will be handling everything having to do with security and perimeter defense.

Matt G will be taking his new M14 out on several LRRPs and taking as many of the ghouls out as possible.

slowrdy45 & stalkingbear will be manning the armory and repairing any weapons, sharpening swords and short bladed weapons as needed.

We don't have anyone with Comms yet - and I know that bkt's team will be wanting to get in touch, so keep an eye out for someone we can source that too. Preferably someone with satellite comm experience.

We have a whole plan, except I haven't put it down on paper yet.

JD

You're in Mass bro - I figured you would hook up with bkt, in New York, LONG before you got to our little piece of paradise.

HOWEVER - you are definitely welcome and you will definitely get a premier job title, I promise...

Not to worry, our little piece of the Formerly Free will be standing LONG after the fall of our Nation - you just need to get across the continental US.

Well, I had no clue bkt was in NY. Of course NY is going to be ground zero for whatever happens. I'll be out west in no time. I'm a professional at road trips. Done a few laps up and down the east coast.

Harmonix- no sweat. Just look for camo netting covering the AH-1 S that some fool left unattended.

Bet he is STILL trying to explain THAT!
