    There has been some discussion about some tv show, calories in and calories out, the amount of physical activity in a post-SHTF situation.

    I own a small farm with small, medium and large livestock.

    I try to do everything around here as if the S has already HTF.
    About two years ago we got a early snow storm. The ATV got stuck in the snow. The last hog I had to put down for slaughter, I had to hump it out there with a plastic toboggan and haul the dead hog back.
    Upside, the snow made it somewhat easy to move.
    Downside, it was a good 400 or 500 yards hauling nearly 300lbs of dead weight.

    It is doable.

    Take a look around. See if there is anything you can do as if the S has HTF for a not only physical exercise, but mental one as well.
    I am enjoying your contributions. Thanks

    Thank you kind sir.

    I try, but do not always succeed, to maintain a balance between what is most likely and what is least likely.

    The thing is, no one knows what tomorrow will bring.
    Anyone who claims such, well . . .

    First you've never been in a real SHTF (like a civil war for 6 - 9 months) so all you know is what you've read or seen here in the USofA

    Second no everyone is not going to die or become a looter.

    Society will not be pleasant, for some time, but it won't devolve into total anarchy in a matter of days.

    Germany didn't with the Collapse of the DM after WWI

    Nor Venezula today. Definitely not pleasant, but no whole sale slaughter or die offs

    Looting somewhat in South America, but to be expected

    Really you ought to put the key board down and get out and experience life in the real world for a change

    He cannot.

    They will not allow him out of the nursing home, unaccompanied by adult supervision.

    When I first started thinking about being more prepared is also when the show doomsday preppers started to air. And I watched them for a bit until I just couldn’t anymore.

    One episode featured a fat retard whose plan was to loot and pillage and featured moments of brilliance as him making armor out of tires and he and his pregnant girlfriend discussing and planning how he would do a home c section on her when the time came. It was tragic to watch, would have been funny if it hadn’t been so pathetic. It later came out that the guy was a sex offender and wasn’t supposed to have firearms yet he had them in his episode. I heard that the local cops arrested him after the episode aired.

    Anyway, my point is that okey reminds me of that guy.

    Reality shows prove that the producers prefer morons. They make for better television. I'm surprised that okie wasn't their first pick.

    I believe I need some of those. I'll get a new Carhartt jacket, and sew 'em up!

    The more you can do for yourself now, the less you will have to rely on others later. Knowledge is the key, but that must also be balanced with the realities of daily living today. (P. S. I'm on my second vodka/oj after working 11 hours hauling cattle, moving a bulldozer, and fixing a broken waterline. Maybey after my 3rd I'll have something worth posting.)
