It's what I heard on a show about the power grind going away. Foxnews if I remember. 90% death rate and be living back in the 1600's. Just repeating the news.Why just the 1600s? Why not the 1700s or 1800s?
Since no one knows, why bother pondering the point? If it happens, I'll take a wait-and-see attitude and then when the dust settles, I'll make a decision.
Yep that's how I grew up. Well pump outside also. Now this is rural WI so temps are well below zero a large part of the winter. Kind of glad that I did. Shooting and canning deer meat and vegetables etc for the root cellar in basement. Wood stove for heat, NO furnace. Made for some mighty cold mornings.What we call SHTF today was just the way of life for a lot of folks until after WW-II. My wife, who's still in her 50's, didn't have indoor plumbing until she was in high school. In 1970's rural Arkansas, she still had to face wild animals and freezing temperatures just to go pee by the light of a kerosene lantern because they didn't have power going out to the outhouse 🥶
