Time for Renec to chime in! I tend to agree with Tinker. You should find a community in which your mindset fits into. It has been a rewarding situation getting involved in my new hometown..meeting all these wonderful folks and realizing that many of them came here for the same reasons I did. We're making a difference teaching skills to folks we may have to depend upon if and when things go bad. And they are in turn making connections to a larger community.
It's not a secret that I'm an Oath Keeper affiliate. But what I've found especially interesting in the past few months is that my spouse and I have been approached by outside groups to teach communications to local and not-so-local prepper groups,the 3%ers and have had some good contact with groups as far as California and lots of contact with groups in the Valley. It's going to take most of us working together to keep this civilization from becoming just a forgotten dream.
the Paris incident may have awoken quite a few folks. I'm willing to help. And in turn,offers of help have been extended to me.
Sorry,I may have wandered off track!
You will need a community to weather what's coming.Find one,or make one. I pray we have another year.
