This site is written by an man who survived the Bosnia conflict, and IMHO gives some pretty good insights about things that matter.
Best line from the article: With bottle of alcohol you can make a good friend from possible enemy.
Pasted below is my comment on the article
Alcohol is *very* important for preppers.
Consider the scenario TSHTF:
Big-time gas stations will be empty in hours (ie: Hurr. Sandy) The only source of gas will be the out-of-the-way places - the greasiest, dirtiest, most run-down places. And guess who works there? Bubba.
So...everyone needs gas. The preppie boys in BMW's waving fists of federal reserve notes will be laughed at by Bubba. The preppers offering ammo to trade might be served at first, but our guy Bubba was already stocked with ammo to begin with - he's got enough. As long as silver will buy anything, which might not be the case in TEOTWAKI, the preppers offering 5 silvers to fill his gas can will get his attention....
The prepper offering 4 silvers and a pint of Jack Daniels will GET HIS GAS.
