Surviving a Meltdown

Posted by foundersfreedom on June 9, 2010

Copying this from my post at

I’m just beginning to do my homework here, and most info sites say much the same thing.  I have no prior knowledge of preparedness anything – this is America. Work hard, be smart and you’ll prosper, right? 

Well, we didn’t know there were forces that were hard at work to destroy this miracle of America, did we?  So, now that we know, and a fall may be closer than we ever imagined, we find ourselves looking back to our childhoods and beyond to learn how our parents and grandparents lived. Our food supply system has been very good for a long time.  What if the fuel supply system goes down?  What if the electric supply system goes down?  What if civil unrest prevents deliveries or makes a trip to the store too dangerous for a few days or a week?  Can’t happen here, can it?

As the father of 4 kids aged 5-15, and the husband of a stay-at-home wife, I can’t think of a worse feeling than wondering how to feed or protect my family. Hence, my desire to get ahead of this stuff.  If collapse or hard times don’t happen (I believe many are already there), we’ll still be better off for it.

To get started, here’s a guide I found that goes through a multitude of layers of preparedness.  It is a little dated as seen through the references, but it isn’t a doom-and-gloom hellfire and brimstone, sky is falling site. Just straight-forward stuff.

Dorothy from the Meetup site sent me two links today, but I have not had time to check them out.  Use your own judgment on everything you read. Everything. and
