    Economy fell apart. No trucks delivering food to Safeway or WinCo.
    Martial law.
    Your workplace closed.
    Riots
    Neighbors shooting neighbors.
    Roads choked with traffic.
    Bug-out is not an option.
    Deer, squirrels, and rabbits in the area are all shot and eaten in the first few days by the non-prepped.(even those of you that live in the countryside)

    Your liberal (I guess conservative also) neighbors need food.
    They know you have some stored up for emergencies.

    Your children will starve in a matter of weeks if you share. They MAY survive a few months if you don't share. They will most likely die either way. Yourself included.

    What do you do?

    Prepare the neighbors in a nice curry sauce.

    Board up the doors & windows downstairs w/ the 3/4" ply I have cut to fit already. Bug in & sleep in shifts w/ the wifey. She can handle my AR nicely!!

    Then wait for the National Guard, whom I'm sure is '10 minutes out'

    and wish that you got in those DAMNED RFB's before now! :)

    "Economy fell apart. No trucks delivering food to Safeway or WinCo." - It's fine.I don't shop there anyway :)

    "Your workplace closed." - Awesome. I don't have to deal with my ***** boss. :)


    "Neighbors shooting neighbors." - Not me. They know everyone in my house is a sharp shooter and I have way more guns than they do :)

    "Bug-out is not an option. " - I wasn't planning on doing it anyway :)

    If my calculations are right I have anough food and water to last my family for about 18 months. Hopefuly I'll find something by then.

    I'm also stocked on hollow point and steel core ammo for my guns.

    I have a solar generator so I can watch all my favorite dvd's on my laptop.( all over again)

    :))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

    I heard a podcast that once suggested you give them a bag of dried corn. To be honest, I will be making food from scratch in much the same fashion, why shouldn't they. I'll keep the diversity for myself and give the lesser of my preps to the neighbors. It should be said though, almost all of my neighbors are my relatives. But I also believe you need to prep with this in mind.

    Grab the machete and double barrel. Zombies are surely around the corner.

    Let me guess.

    Stop by Ortwein International before it happens and stock up now? :thumbup: (j/k)

    This is the best, most well defined scenario yet. I'll have to think about it.

    The first step will be an up at night and sleep during the day while my one neighbor and I watch each other's back. He's old and probably tastes like pee and cigarettes if we cooked him so that's out of the plan.

    It's why I have a hopped up 4x4 and practice wheelin' it regularly. I have enough gas to easily get to my bug out property and enough guns/ammo to make sure no one takes it away. What I can't drive over/around I'll winch it or myself out of or through....

    I've considered pretty much the same scenario. Would I share with my neighbor? Unlikely...sorry, my family first. I would barter some food if someone had something I needed, but no I am not giving away food. Give once, they will be back for more. If we will all die, then there is not point to any of it, but I am hoping to live long enough to see things to the other side. Survival of the fittest.

    I live in Portland, not downtown, but certainly urban. Kinda closed in and hard to "defend" the house when anyone can sneak up, from any direction. My wife laughed, at first, but saw the sense in my purchase: several rolls of barbed wire, more than enough to completely encircle my house several times.

    BTW, my neighbors do not know I store food/guns etc...plan to keep it that way.

    Cheers,
    DJM

    Whatever you do to lengthen the temporary survival of your body will have a lasting effect on the condition of your eternal soul.

    Sit back and hope someone tries to enter my property to rob me. They'll make good jerky.

    That sounds just like phase three of our Supreme High Commanders economic plan. As for me I plan on visiting all my neighbors that still have "Obama" bumper stickers and taking all food and related articles into "Protective custody" Kinda like pre-emptive Policing. Let the games begin.:thumbup:

    Hopefully my supply of fried food chain restaurant wet naps are secured and prepare to eat all the old people.

    Well that's a nice cheery scenario.

    My wife will have to go to work anyway (the ER will be inundated with sick people who have consumed poorly prepared rodents).

    I will guard the fort, tend the garden, and exhibit behavior synonymous with someone who has bubonic plague.
