To be Prepared is Half the Victory
The question I am most often asked is "If what you're
saying is true, it's obvious that I need to do something to
protect myself and my family, but I don't know where to
start. Can you help?"
Sadly most people are woefully unprepared for the
inevitable terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and other
disruptions that are planned for our daily lives.
Our government tells us VIRTUALLY NOTHING about what we can
do to protect ourselves. And make no mistake about it,
there's plenty we can do -- We don't have to be sitting
As JFK once said, "The time to repair the roof is when the
sun is shining." So, as the storm clouds start brewing
all around us, let's make sure the roof is in order, before
it's too late.
Your number one resource when the planned cataclysmic events
start taking place is your knowledge - and that's
knowledge gained over months or years of learning to think
how to live primarily independent of the system.
Whatever you do, don't rely on your government to save you.

What Is A Rational Individual To Do?
What to do About Things Right Now
Here's a superb article which may provide pointers on what
you should be doing to prepare.

Well, there are a number of things you can do right now to
ensure that you personally prepare for the coming hard
times. Some will think you nuts. But, there are things
you can do quietly and covertly, even in that context.
Most importantly, you must plan now and be ready to
implement that plan the moment the wheels come off.
If you live in a city, you need to plan how to get out in
the event of a catastrophe. Immediately. Not the next day.
Not that night. Immediately. Remember what South Central LA
looked like just hours after the Rodney King verdict was
handed down? That’s how quickly it will degenerate.
No freeways. They will be death traps. You need an escape
route that takes you through neighborhoods you know will be
safe for a time. Being among the first to leave will help to
ensure that roads are not blocked.
You must have a plan in place for assembling your family
for the trip, regardless of the time of day that it becomes
Assemble a "bug-out" kit and keep it in your trunk.
Store enough gasoline in cans in your garage to get you to
wherever you already have planned will be your retreat.
Recycle the contents every six months, because gasoline
degenerates fairly rapidly. Keep your escape vehicle gassed
up and well-serviced at all times.
Make a list of the things you can grab while the family is
being assembled. Keep the list in the bug-out kit. Make a
copy and keep it in your sock drawer, in case the car is
busy picking up kids. Think apocalyptically today.
You won't be capable of rational thought when the need arises,
but you will be able to follow your list. Include any gold and
silver you might be keeping stashed away (if you don't have
any, then shame on you). Include weapons – you will need them,
Get permission in advance, even if you treat it as a big joke,
to arrive on the doorstep of friends or family in the country,
if that is what you must do. Otherwise, they will not be happy
to see you. Arrive with enough of something or other that
makes you a valuable and welcome addition to their enclave.
Food. Gasoline. Bullets. Gold. That sort of thing.
If nothing ever happens, which I consider exceedingly unlikely
(that is, it is inevitable, in my humble opinion), then you
will have wasted nearly nothing. In fact, you will make money
on the appreciation in gold and silver that has been going on
and will continue for several years. If something happens, a
few hours' preparation today may spell the difference between
life and death. Yours. And your family's.
If you've a mind to, now would be an excellent time to move
your family to an area likely to be among the safer in the
country, regardless of what may happen. That will not include
any city of any serious size. Nor should it include areas
within 100 miles of any coast (can you say, "nuke-induced
Tsunami?"). The more paranoid will want to stay at least 400
miles away from Yellowstone Park.
