I mean a slow dissolution where life becomes progressively harder, less rewarding.

Well, RedSky, your post got me thinking. Lots of people view "the end of days" in one large, dynamic social loss. Even at my age I never thought that "change" would be anything else but one act of total destruction. But then, I looked at my own changes--a new knife here, more ammunition there--and it was clear my movements were in "the slow" category, as well.

Where it really stuck for me was just watching my wife drive away to check on her mother and maybe stop for gas. Something 'clicked' for me and I found that rambling around a huge house with no positive, alternative opinions on actions had nothing to do with cases of wooden matches, reloading materials and knives to sharpen. Knowledge and "balance" is needed human trait.

Think of the circumstances for yourself. The last of the marauders are dead or have moved across the state, you have untold gallons of pure water, boxes of perfect stainless nails, sharp knives that never rust and ammunition with little or no logical use. In other words, you are an adult and you still want your "mommy.' Oh, you can rebuild a firearm in your sleep but you cannot get a grip on your own realizations.

I thought again about your comment on slow dissolution. An empty room, no voices except for your own, and a metric ton of dried food you might never live to eat. Your position really hit me!

IMHO: Unless you already live TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY off grid on your own land that’s completely paid for and have a substantial buffer around you, one is never completely ready for what’s to come. I’ve been preparing for years and am nowhere close to where I want to be. There’s an abundance of projects to always work on.
