If there has been a discussion on this, I missed it. Do we have anybody here who feels they are a prepper? A doomsday prepper? a readiness freak, etc etc? If so, how far have you gone to be ready for [whatever]? Right now I'm at a point that in 20 minutes I could have my entire family and provisions/supplies in a vehicle headed to an undisclosed location where we could survive without aid for about a week comfortably. I could also bug-in in case the event was a massive weather related event, probably for the same amount of time. I think I might even be able to take out a few zombies if i had to... Anyway, I'm a big fan of having 3 days worth of supplies around in case of a natural disaster that would require red cross or government aid, etc. I think that's a smart thing to do. I kinda enjoy the mental gymnastics required to consider the "other" possibilities, too, but I highly doubt any economic collapse is gonna happen in my lifetime, as well as some of the other proposed disasters that have been discussed on some of those new reality TV shows. discuss.
