I hear you. New England is a funny place to say the least isn't it? The sad thing is, we could be the most vulnerable in a SHTF situation. NH below the Notch especially. While there are a lot of trees, for heat, there are also an awful lot of people. Won't last long will it. Then you have the mindset. For the most part, NH is nothing more than northern Mass as is southern Maine. Lived in all three places. Then the agriculture, or lack of it now. I don't have an answer for you Bobbie B, I wish I did.
The crazy thing about like minded people are, we are also paranoid to let anyone know what we are up to. I find that here in Kentucky, I have several friends that are prepared or preparing but they don't have or will not commit to a group. Most think they will just bug in and ride it out.
Historically, Yankees have always been a standoffish group of people. I know I am and tend to just watch a lot. Another issue I have right now is the inability to travel. I just don't have the gas to do so. I never know when I am going to be up all night plowing and cannot afford to take the chance of being short. It just is.
Bobby, let me ask you this...how far south are you in NH? Are you in your place or are you going to need a bug out location? A lot of stuff here that's not said. How far are you willing to travel to meet up and what are your hopes in forming a group?
Hay I may be getting a new ride so after this covid crap is over, I might be ready for a road trip. I will keep you posted.
We are in Sullivan county and I have had some success in meeting like minded people. I just don't want to miss anyone in this area. I have no problem driving to meet someone. I just need to wait to go long distance till after the snow for now. My truck still needs some work is the reason, I have a meet up to do in January that is local. So still working, but thanks anyway.
