Thinking Jericho Thoughts

Tuesday, May 22, 2007

I recall, some years ago, winning a contest to find the nuttiest nuts in internut land. I chose the EOTWAWKI (End Of The World As We Know It) folks. Seriously, the other guys had Scientology ding-dongs, ZOG conspiracy theorists, and Jimmy Carter. (That last one was close!) But I won hands down.

But I was thinking, what would or could you do if you wanted to prepare for a Jericho type situation. You know, you lose power, your electrical stuff stops working even on batteries, you wait a week or so, and you conclude....

YOYO: You're On Your Own.

What can or could a practical person have done?

Let's start with some ground rules: you can't spend a zillion dollars or a zillion hours preparing, but let's say you have some money and some time. Let's also assume that none of us are Snake in Escape From New York.

Go.

Uh, wow, a lot to think about: relatives, friends, people with medical needs, young children, pregnant wives, where do you live, where can you go, which friends are a plus and which aren't, etc, etc.

Send us some email, we'll start pulling together some thoughts...

    If I had advance warning of a Jericho type scenario I'd max the credit cards buying as much ammo, medical supplies, canned foods, and alcohol as I could. You have to think what you won't be able to get once the trucks stop bringing stuff.
