My only real preps have been to not not have my face where the punch is thrown. I live in the Boonies, probably dont have nearly enough ammo or fuel and only about 3 weeks worth of food but Im counting on the rurality of my nature to provide! There are only a few months a year here where fresh fruit and veggies arent scroungeable or growable, that when were eating high protein whatever I can kill! I have 3 Spring Wells and one drilled 220' that will provide all the water we need starting with a 90 gal Hot Water tank full at all times.
Most Country folk will not be bugging out, we are out to start! My Neighbors and relatives have farms and other substantial means of feeding our small communities without trucking it in and Im pretty sure we can rally to defend. We do that already, with our all Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squads, Ruratins, Kiwanis, Lions, FFA and other clubs, we really dont wait for agencies to fix our problems, we fix them locally. I might add that I can count the folks I know that dont have guns round here on one hand or less!
Lastly, according to how bad The SHTF, I might rather die sooner than survive in a wasteland of any type. In the end, the Lords gonna take me when he's good and ready and not a minute sooner or later, see ya on the other side!
