Great book! Loved it. One Second After by William Forstchen was the book that got me into action to Prep. I read it in 2015. For awhile I read and read and read about the best way to prep. Created large binders on every important item I could think of...food, how much we needed, best things to store...medical, including all items and medicines needed...water and how to clean it...clothing needed...Information on all surrounding people, streams, and flocks if animals...security and how to make defensive items after the SHTF ..canning and everything needed...chessemaking.I could very well be wrong but in the writings of James Wesley Rawles who wrote PATRIOTS a fictionalised guide/ story about surviving a total collapse he writes that its vital people pay their local state taxes to prevent the state seizing your property at a later date. And I THINK ( definately unsure) but some places have the right to seize property and land if they believe it was obtained via the proceeds of crime. I could easily see CA doing stuff like that.
Kind of like when Obama went had is little golfing game at the country club while under quarantine and it was shut down? I know technically he has no power anymore, but he does.Show me a Dem politician with some power and I will show you a total hypocrite! Every single time! Yet idiots keep voting for them.
My family moved to CA in 1958. The weather was great. The roads were good. Land was cheap. In fact it was so nice millions of people went there. Gradually it changed. There used to be seashells on long uncrowded beaches. No more. Some of the best trout fishing in the world. Paved over and subdivided,There is a large conservative group in California still. Please don’t throw us all under the bus. I love this state but I hate what LA, SF and Sacramento have done too it. Their voting numbers far out weigh us even though we have most of the land. Smh
If you have the time 101 is so much better than 105. We took it on our honeymoon. Yosemite is always beautifulIt was still ok when I backpacked the Highway 1 from LA to Big Sur, Carmel Valley, Frisco, Sacramento and the Yosemite and John Muir Trail areas back in '75/'76. People were still friendly and happy, sad to hear the changes are going downhill so bad...
There was a ritual performed there once. It was in Yosemite, not sure witch mountain. A huge, and I mean huge fire was built on the top. Then at night it was bulldozed off the cliff. Very fun party. Not done any more due to environmentalist, of witch I am one, but come on.I will probably never return to CA. At 63 and retired...but I have collected many pics of El Capitan in the very seldom times where the snow melts, makes a waterfall, the weather is clear, the sun is coming up and you have to be in the perfect place to get the right photo... here are a few for you to enjoy...Gary
