We're thinking more along the lines of bank collapses/ weather/ fuel shortages causing us problems, but perhaps we should also look at options for "getting away" somewher...

Re: Hi, back on here after a break..

Hiya nwpreppers, We're fine thanks! Our preps are going quite well now. Tried to reply earlier but kept timing out, very slow typer. This years events have really made us sit up and pay attention.

Re: Hi All

Thanks for the welcome Pseudonym and Arzosah! Hi Arzosah, of all the possible scenarios, i think financial collapse is currently the most likely. This would also impact so many other areas of life, that it hardly bears thinking about! You've only got to look at Venezuela. Little food and big queues,...
