Cold again, and damp. Hopefully not wet. It was dreary and wet most of yesterday and although the total wasn’t 1 inch it wasn’t 0 either. I really need a clear day to drive up to the BOL with an open pickup bed full of stuff.
I made 2 of my three pickups yesterday with 2 to do today. The two today are on my way out of town, so that’s a plus. I was chatting with one of the auctioneers, an owner in the company, and he is very much a Like Minded Individual. He’s been prepping for years. He’s got HUGE stacks of stuff, industrial quantities, due to where he is in the supply chain. He has been stacking the good stuff for years. I had a suspicion he was right of center, because of all the Tr ump stuff that is in his auctions, as well as the posted signs about guns being welcome in their facility. Didn’t expect to see the stacks he quickly showed me… he’s better set up at work than most people are at home or their BOL. More than that, he’s got TRIBE. Large family, all on board, pretty much a compound to retreat to. I’m impressed and a bit envious.
He commented that he thinks everything in the world will be different in 18 months. I agreed.
We are not alone. There are a LOT of people out there doing what we’re doing- getting ready to take care of ourselves and our friends. We will get through whatever is coming.
Being prepped up and having stacks of needful things will help enormously.
And having somewhere to go if things get out of hand locally will help you too. Which is why I’m dumping huge sums into a place in the country. You don’t have to go my route, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea to figure out where you can go. There is a lot of property around the small towns that is for sale cheap, and there are sheds, campers, storage buildings, truck trailers, conex boxes, single wides, and even tents to live in cheaply if things fall in the pot. Better to have something than nothing…
So get to stacking, and find somewhere to go if you have to.
