That's reality for a lot of folks.

Prepping doesn't mean you have to give up everything in life and hide in a bunker. Sometimes we just have to play the hand we're dealt. Find your vulnerabilities and do what you can to mitigate them. To me, that's what prepping is all about.It’s a huge sacrifice to put away things that are comfortable but don’t work for long term survival scenarios
3 guys recently who can save the world. We are down to 2 of them. I nuked one.Same guy with the same post on another prepper forum I'm a member of.
Kind of my thinking. I can take a break.If these two are going to save the world, I guess I don't have to do anything.
I wonder if we'll get free t-shirts with "I survived the 2023 Apocalypse".Kind of my thinking. I can take a break.
Thank you Kauboy, you’re absolutely right for the reasons you mentioned.It may not be a matter of comfort.
If a person is stuck in a cycle of low to middle income, inflation, high energy prices, and crushing debt, what options do they legitimately have?
Sure, getting some land out in the sticks might be a good option. But that's not remotely within the scope of being realistically possible for a large percentage of folks.
I'm trying to engage you in your first thread on this site, but you're not offering much.
Give real ideas. Recommend potential life changes folks can make who may be struggling to achieve independence.
Your name suggests you're on a mission to alert people to what could be coming. Let's start there.
What do you feel is imminent that people who've not yet committed to doing something would be motivated by to get up and start working toward preparedness goals?
Thanks for remembering me rice paddy daddy. It was a nice forum until the moderators derailed it and made it magically disappear. I thought it was strange, after all the purpose of forums like these are for like-minded folks to openly discuss, share and maybe discover something about prepping. Not over there, moderators decided I was spam and deleted me after 7 pages with people I didn’t know demanding they reopen the thread. They reopened it temporarily and I continued to respond until the super moderator threated me. I’m still not sure what that was all about. I’m not a bot or a spammer. It didn’t matter as they showed the entire forum that site probably wasn't the right place to discuss anything important. I split after that. Strange for sure. Oh well, I'm here for now thanks RPDSame guy with the same post on another prepper forum I'm a member of.
Being 350 miles from a city is a long way.
I wouldn't worry too much about the city folks.
I would worry more about who my neighbors are.
Exactly Maine-Marine. Besides avoiding densely populated areas, it’s safest to avoid major highways, train tracks, power lines & jails. At first locust will be driving cars up to rural doorsteps. Don’t be near a road.350 miles is a long drive, even further on bike , and a month walking
I think 350 miles of a city is safe.. as long as you are outside of the small town and not right on a main freeway/highway/county route....
remember, locust consume local resources before the move on to the next field...so the locust have 350 miles of fields (and people protecting their fields) between you and the locust
and also..remember locust compete with other locust
