I have a small media archiving business that in the last 2 Months has earned less than $80.00! If it were not for my wife's Parks Job and my SSI, we would be in real trouble! I SAW the situation we are in now COMING back in March and acted accordingly. THIS is why we are debt free, own our house have a year supply f food, and $3K CASH ON HAND- NOT IN THE BANK! 1300 Rds for the AR, 1400 Rds for the .40, and close to 5,000 Rds for the .22! I thank GOD we are both licensed Hams, and we have a small Solar Station to run Lights and commo. We Heat with Kerosene, so Heat and Light are available to us OFF-GRID. I've seen a couple of shoving matches in the food section at the local wally world. I have chosen NOT to get my CCW because that is one database I DON'T want to be in! We have a Butane Camp Stove and enough fuel for it to cook with that for an entire year if we need to.
I had SUCH Plans for us. Wife is exactly one year from retirement with a full pension. I THINK we will be exceptionally lucky as she is tenured and has permanent status in Federal Service. I HAVE hoped we could eventually buy a piece of land in rural SW Oregon AWAY from everyone and everything. But, with the situation as it stands now, I SERIOUSLY doubt we will ever get the chance. We do not belong to ANY MAG anywhere, and we live in an EXTREMELY Blue part of the Left Coast. If it does go completely to Hell, we can settle in at our home. Our only REAL weakness is Water, and I can't do anything about that other than go out from time to time to a stream about 4 Miles away, collect it and filter it when I get back home. If I DO have to do that, I have a friend I think can come along with me. One to collect the water and the other to provide ARMED protection.
WELCOME TO BOSNIA U.S.A!
