Caching supplies

I think I've found a good spot to preposition a few things in case I can't get to my main stash for whatever reason(s). Behind my home is a fairly large cemetery, which is next to a convent. The best part is that 2/3 of the land is overgrown with trees and brush and pretty much has been left alone by the owners. Now I don't see the cemetery rapidly expanding in the near future, and I think I can stash my equipment with little difficulty.

March on D.C.

This needs to happen to stop the madness in Washington. A million people on the mall can't be ignored by anyone. Spread the word , get involved.

Time to make new friends

One idea that I've had is to establish a type of chain of people in my area to establish a safety net in the event they or myself get caught out in an area that is less than friendly, sort of like those whales tale signs for children to go to if they are being bothered. This chain could also help in establishing some sort of trade route for goods,services, and information.

So, if you are in the western Pa area, and this sounds like something you would be interested in, let me know.

Neighborhood watch

I have been talking to a few of my neighbors recently about forming some type of a neighborhood watch as sort of a round about way of getting them prepared for the possibility of us being left to defend ourselves here within the near future. For the most part I seem to be spinning my wheels, nobody has shown any real interest in doing anything that takes them out of their routine or their comfort zone. If anyone reading this has any ideas on how to approach them without sounding all doom and gloom, I'd love to hear your ideas.

My weekend

My wife and I took a road trip this past weekend to Erie for a much needed break from our hectic schedules. Although we were heading in a direction that we most likely wouldn't be going if we had to evacuate, I still tried to imagine What this major interstate would look like like with thousands of vehicles streaming out of the city heading for wherever. Within this snarling mess of vehicles, there's bound to be fender benders, mechanical breakdowns, flat tires, and the list could go on but I'm sure you get the idea.

Now whenever there is something happening along the roadway in terms of accidents and such, alot of people, and you can even include me in this, slow down to rubberneck and by doing this causes the cars behind to slow down,etc,etc. Now what if the vehicles involved in this mess can't be moved ? Forget about calling a tow truck. Are people going to get out to help the disabled motorists? I doubt it. So now we have blocked lanes and a panicked mob not moving. I guess you could compare it to trying to leave a stadium parking lot after a game with nobody wanting to let another car in front of them. I know I get frustrated pretty easy when I encounter a**hole drivers and would like to drag them out of their car for a good beating.

Now let's arm these people and see what happens to our traffic jam. I don't know about you , but I want know parts of anything to do with that mess. It could possibly end up looking like the highway between Kuwait City and Baghdad that we saw on tv during the first gulf war, burnt bodies and vehicles. This scene could happen on any roadway, not just an interstate.

My plan has some holes in it

Well I just return from my weekend getaway to see that I have gotten some comments from some of you regarding my plans for whatever is coming. As in any one point of view, there will be people who will have a different one than yours. Its no different than critiquing a quarterback or coach after a questionable play. I don't claim to have all the answers, and I'm always looking to correct any missteps I may take getting my families plans in order, because that is why I'm doing this. For the ones I like to refer to affectionately to as my little tax deductions.

"Go loot and pillage somewhere else!!!"

You know it's going to happen. People will take something that is not theirs and there won't be anyone to stop them from tearing up the local Walmart or beer dist. and /or liquor store. I can almost picture it, two drunks fighting over a case of warm beer and a bag of smashed pretzels.

My neighborhood is pretty quiet,not much happens around here that would warrant media coverage and I don't think COPS would want to film an episode here. Within four miles of my home is the city limits of Pittsburgh, and I believe the source of the majority of the looters will come from. I don't want to sound racist by saying this, but I would bet you my last can of pork n beans that there will be groups of the city dwellers coming out to the 'burbs looking for food, fuel,
booze, etc. These groups need to be stopped as quickly as possible by any means necessary. I'm not saying shoot 'em and chop off their heads, but a strong deterence must be established.

Let's assume that our police will be out of the picture due whatever reason, we as a community will have to take place to ensure the safety of our families and property.Sentry posts, roving patrols, and signs and nooses swinging from trees should get the point across to any group thinking about coming around us.
