Last spring I tried to get New Mexico people interested in a camp-out or meet and greet. This past year we have seen a lot of water under the bridge and I feel we are being pushed nearer to the edge. NMPRN has several good points about a ham radio network. The internet is not the place to talk about all emergency plans. Several states have had prepper shows, the ones I attended mostly were people trying to sell gimic gear instead of offering real skill-building exercises.
I am not talking of overthrowing the government, I am talking about what to pack to survive the night if you car slides off the road in a snow storm. How to sharpen a knife. How to make a campfire with what you carry in your pocket. Where to find good gear without paying a fortune. People, you don't have to invent the wheel, just learn what others before you have learned. Take Care
