Hello everyone ! ! Hope all is great for you . I'm a fairly comfortable suburban inhabitant , but I deeply fear the the U.S. fed. gov. cannot keep their Ponzi schemes going for too much longer and they will all the nation to fall into social chaos . My goals are to ride it out in as great amount of comfort as possible . The things that scare me the most is that most people are ill prepared to function without all the infrastructure , commerce , communications etc . Hopefully many of you have solid plans that I may learn from and adopt for my family .

I think you'll find like-minded folks here.

Myself, I'm in my 40's, and the wife and I have a small ranch just outside the closest town. We commute about an hour to the big city for our jobs, so get home each night, make dinner, watch some TV, and go to bed. We live mostly for the weekends when we work around the ranch, and try to have some fun days each month.

Our main goal is to be fairly self-sufficient. We have a well for water, and septic for waste disposal. For power, the goal is eventually to have some solar options (for well pump, etc.) and a propane generator. We're starting a veggie garden and an herb garden within the next two months. We also keep rabbits and chickens. We have horses, so come SHTF, they could be handy transport.

We do stockpile a little (arms, ammo, canned food, dry goods, medical, cleaning supplies, etc.), but the real goal is to be able to survive in a post SHTF situation where we can't just go to the store or the doctor's office, etc.

Good luck, and welcome!

I've seen a couple wackos on the site here, but they never last long and the vast majority are really good people. There is a ton of good info worth learning if you go thru the old threads. You can also just ask a question on a topic and you'll get responses. I haven't seen other forums, but have really enjoyed this. Welcome.
