    Not gonna worry about it; job one is to get the heck out of dodge with the family. I will worry about other peeps if I run across them....

    I will "Survive In Place," having no where else to go, unless a lot of people die and leave farmable land behind. I will have my kids and any spouses and grandkids. I'm sure I can find useful things for them to do.

    As an introvert, I have only a couple of close friends. I will take one with me (if she will go), and leave the other to her drug-addled and sex-addicted friends.

    This year my tasks are (1) to learn to garden - grow herbs and vegetables, and (2) figure out a way to hoard drinkable water. (55 gal drums?)

    I, myself, don't expect to survive too far into a EOTWAWKI-type scenario, but my plan is to give my (near-adult) kids a head start.

    I have one friend who is a retired military instructor and whose wife is a police officer. He has a nice big collection and knows how to use them. All of my high speed low drag USPSA friends would be good, too.

    My brother in law is real paranoid about zombies, he has all the survival books.

    Unfortunately, I don't know anyone here in Vegas. My wife and I would be good additions to a group- I'm a Physician Assistant , who practices Urgent Vare and Family Practice, and my wife is a retired electrical engineer, who specialized in analog power systems. Hopefully I'll find a local group.

    If I were you, I'd be stocking up on medical supplies (antibiotics, bandages, etc.), besides food, ammo, and water.

    Being that you are in the desert, you should have a Plan B if you have to flee the city. Make sure you have a good map that shows water supplies.

    My "Iron Mountain" is an old farm upstate,almost 250 acres,livestock,tilled acerage,greenhouses,2 natural springs and a river.
    I tend 30 beehives there and save the honey to make "adult beverages"
    We dehydrate everything from 4 acres of gardens,then vacuum bag all of it.

    The whole place would be hard to protect,thats why I think I would need help.

    I would stay put at my home. We live in a rural area 25-30 miles from the nearest large city. I would partner up with others in my area. I know within a 1/2 mile of where I live there's at least (1) nurse, (1) fire-medic, (2) LEO. Also within that area is much tilled soil for farming. My wife and I are avid gardeners and my wife cans almost all of our vegetables. We have 3 large ponds within 1/2 mile and a well on our property that could provide water. There are only 4 roadway entrances to the area I would remain so should not be hard to set-up roadblocks and defensive positions to ward off the sheep and zombies fleeing the city.

    With that said I still would like to complete the following ASAP.
    1. purchase a good defensive rifle (think AK/AR, I have handguns and a 12 ga.)
    2. stock up on ammo (in addition to defense, this may become a valuable asset for trade/bartering)
    3. double the size of our garden
    4. acquire some survival books and/or training
    5. help my wife loose her "sheep" mentality (it's hard to spend time and money in preparation for the EOTWAWKI when your spouse is sheep-like!!)

    In the sort of shtf scenarios being discussed, you will have no friends and no one you can trust. You might think you are taking someone into your group because of a skill they have. They might be planning to kill and eat you.

    The wife and I recently watched a program on the History Channel that dealt with a worse case scenario in the event of a world wide cataclisym and how it might be for the survivors. Just plain scary of how we take for granted the safety and things we have.

    Not too many people will be friendly when it comes down to survival. My friends list would be extremely short.

    I don't have any friends on my list, but we have a bunch of those little minibar booze bottles. I figure they will be like currency.

    Next on my list is to learn to can vegetables. I have a mormon friend who wants me to teach him and his wife to shoot. In trade, they will teach me how to can.

    After that, I have plans to get my amateur radio operator's license.

    My family are ALL sheep and are scared of guns (with the exception of my son). They also have absolutely no skills. They will be in charge of chopping wood, cooking, washing and mending clothes, etc.

    2010 will be my year to really get serious about preparation. It would make like so much easier if my family was on board. My brother-in-law makes over $500K per year, but he has absolutely no plan for when the Schumer hits the fan.
    I gave my wife a cannin kit for Christmas, we are planning on restarting a garden in the spring. Other than my brother who lives close and a cousin don't have many on my list, most people I know don't see the world the way I or many of you do.
