Pardner, that was nothing to joke about. And then I saw a poll you started and realized you really weren't joking. Tongue in cheek maybe but you, and too many others apparently, really think that way. That's some f****d up, pretty suicidal if you ask me, attitude.

Some people think because they speak using a keyboard on a computer, instead of in person with their own mouth....that its not a big deal. Just 'interwebs rambling.

Accountability. Learn it, live it.

It takes a person with character to admit when they screwed up, and you have admitted that. Don't worry about it, we've all put our foot in our mouth at some point.

Figure this may be a good time to revive this thread...and energize some folks who are starting to see that things are slowly swirling down the toilet drain. There are at least 4-5 major national/intl issues happening as we speak that if even one of them suddenly got dramatically worse in a short time...the SHTF clock has officially started ticking.

Time to start bucking the current now before you look around and find yourself in the sewage!

At this time, I wont give specific details but I am officially on tier 3 of my breakdown up top.

Whatever, water under the bridge.
Let's focus on food/water/supply storage. Curious to see if anyone has increased their storage since the Spring. I have basically doubled my stores in all areas

Since spring:
- added a couple of cases of MREs
- Been getting more serious about my training with my AR, shooting more often again and also a bit more realistic (updrills)
- Added some water but not enough. Its a space issue a bit also.
- Got eyesurgey so I am not independent of contact lens supplies. This is a big improvement to my SHTF resiliency IMO ( previous to the surgery I had 3 pairs of glasses, would been more if I hadnt planning for surgery, and a 8 month supply of lenses that could be easily stretched to 2-3 years. about 1-2 years worth of contact lens solution also
- Added some more non perishable assorted food stuffs and vitamin bottles. Nothing crazy.

Assuming I am inactive + hunkering down I have water for 3 months (there is a pond nearby and i have some basic entry level filters too) food for 4 months and lots of Ammo
