Yes, a STEMI transfer from SE Missouri hospital to the best St. Louis STEMI hospital, and a trip to get gas. I burned 75 gallons of jet fuel all told. just doing my job, and a little of Diesel Driver's just in case he is slacking.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

I went with the Kibbutz.

This country's earlier days had forts for protection.  They were also used throughout history. 

Didn't a conservative group form something like this?  I can't remember the state.

Not sure in the FAQs it says they will begin to showcase property in summer of 2013.  There website hasn't changed with any updates or news in over 2 years pretty much.

This along with either a skill to contribute or the willingness to learn a skill to contribute. I think tight knit at first working towards individual homesteads as the rabble quell down. I think you will need the extra people if you want to be successful defending your own family so keeping your circle tight and protecting your resources should be the priority. Once things settle down, you move to the homestead model with the initial threat passed. Much like the first settlements here post socialist spin sent by the early corporations who sent the settlers here of course. I think you have to allow for this flexibility to adjust to the situation as it changes.

The fort idea reminds me of Manteo N.C.   A nice little fort, were everyone disappeared into thin air.


Anyone remember the Alamo?

Forts have such logistic problems, same as today in city's sewage disposal, clean water and finding a way to get around the enemy to acquire supplies, food, clothing and opens itself up to the dead beats that will steal the gold from your teeth.

In the rock cellar of my family home the walls are grimy from when the home was burned down due to an Indian Attack , the Indians went on a rampage, burned a neighboring town of Wells Maine and continued down the coast.   They came too fast for most to flee to safe areas, but being hard headed the stubborn Yankees rebuilt in the early 1700's their homes on the cellar site of burned out homes.

Sort of like today in the mid-West and after a tornado in a trailer park the people clean up the damage and haul in another trailer.   

Don't like the idea of a society bunched in together, we well know what happens when a rumor goes around and next thing one knows they are burning people at the stake as Witches.   

It is said that the safest people in the old west were the traders that were too valuable for anyone to kill or rob.   Everyone Friend or Foe  needed them so they were left alone.  If someone on either side harmed them other traders would not come into the area. 

Farmers up here were the wealthy but the job was a back breaking job subject to the weather.   Fisherman were poor but at least they kept their belly's full of Lobster, clams, oysters, salt cod and Eels ETC.  AND they could move about from place to place in an emergency, Farmers were stuck, no place to go. Too far from a fort for safety and  only helpers were family and an occasional slave of all colors and country's  to help out.

Taking a page from history, it was the humans that could bug out that survived.

vesta, if you show up at my door after the Democratic Apocalypse, I promise to refrain from burning you at the stake.
