Realize its hard for busy folks to get together to meet, trade ideas, perhaps form a retreat group; but I'm interested in doing this. There is a presentation scheduled for later this month I plan to attend of great interest to preppers, "Surviving the Coming Bioengineered Viral Pandemic." Of all the threats I worry about, this one is by far the worst, and unfortunately probably the most likely. The presentation is going to be given in DC area twice later this month:
Thur, April 18, 8PM at American Legion in Springfield VA
6520 Amherst Ave, Springfield, VA 22150
Fri, April 19, 8PM at VFW Hall in Falls Church VA
7118 Shreeve Rd (behind the McDonalds on Route 7, Leesburg Pike)
If you plan to attend let me know and perhaps we can stay afterwards to meet, and perhaps form a group or at least exchange emails and set time to meet again and discuss.

Went to the briefing on “Surviving the coming Bioengineered Viral Pandemic.” Briefer was a former military intelligence officer and long-time prepper, who obviously has been studying this for a long time. His slides summarized the problem and gave lots of documented sources. The most compelling thing was that many experts use the term “inevitable” for this—there have already been accidental cases of creating deadly bioengineered viruses and it is relatively easy for small terrorist groups, even individuals, to create and release a new virus.
After explaining the threat he gave a second briefing on how to survive it. I’d heard some of these arguments before—a viral pandemic is going to not just shut down economic activity and food deliveries, it will kill off first responders and could lead to a collapse that lasts for months, maybe much longer. Just a few days and unprepared or criminal folks will be out marauding. What they recommend is not just a survival community, but one that has enough members and ability to defend itself, professional management to run quarantine, and enough space to keep members spread out (not in a cramped central underground shelter) and separated into their own group so less risk of a virus spreading inside. They set up a survival facility like this in Colorado called “Fortitude Ranch” and are opening one now in West Virginia. I expected that the cost to join it would be very high, but it was surprisingly low and they are offering discounts to early joiners. I signed up and my total cost for the year was under $1,000.
All the briefings are on their website, fortituderanch.com. They also have email contacts there.
