    Kind-of shows how the lone wolf prepper will be susceptible to small groups of looters. Better recruit a few friends and group-up for security.

      take it slowly and you will find like minded people to group up with.

      We are looking for others who may be interested in a group also. You just have to be sure you get the right fit for your group or that you are the right fit for the group you are interested in.

    FUD fear, uncertainty and doubt is our greatest enemy and the powers that be weld this weapon with incredible success. I do understand who in these troubled times we think/hope we can count on friends, family and like minds. Unfortunately I know of several groups that have disintegrated over the pressure of trying to prepare as a group for TEOTWAWK. Myself included have had falling out with long term friends and family because of differing stages of life people not valuing deeds done in the past. This is something we American's have not had to do for a hundred years or so. I have met some wonderful people through these meeting in the last few years. We need to have a meetup on how to cooperate with one another it would appear. We need to stop arguing over small differences and make headway on the big picture. We need to found Prepperville or Barter Town with the good of all in mind not just the advantage of one over the other.

    living in the metro area of jacksonville i know that i have a limited time frame to cross the river and get out of town. then it will be up to god on who survives. all i can do is be prepared and hope for the best.

    I watched the whole thing. If one lives in a big city and the grid goes down you may be in big trouble with food riots and lack of water and looting whereas if you live in a small town our in the country you're far better off. Shows you how fragile our infrastructure is and how it wouldn't take very much to push us over the brink. I don't think even the people who have prepared will be safe because of those who haven't prepared trying to take from them if they live in the cities.

    I'm interested to see what the media giant will come out with and what way they will try to steer the public.
