I am not a person that dwells on "dooms day" scenarios like the end of the world on Dec 12 2012. But I do believe our country is is mortal danger from the break down of our aging electrical infrastructure and the possibilities of it being shut down by an EMP or other natural or unnatural source. My wife and I believe there are safety in numbers in a time of a disaster. People of like thoughts need to be able to contact others within a short period of time to coordinate activities - gather supplies- arrange for medical care, etc. After the stores are out of food, gas, and other supplies = it is too late to try to coordinate movements of friends and family and locate areas that are safe and can be protected. I think of my church members that are older than I and think of how they will be defenseless if riots break out and gangs are roaming the streets. The have nots will take from those that can not defend themselves. Just as in New Orleans in Katrina. Okay - to get to the main reason for the post - What I would like to do is find others in my area that have the same thoughts as we do on survival. People that can come together and share ideas - that can be trusted and will help others in time of need. Not a militia or anything like that but people that can and will stand together if the worse does happen. I live in the north east texas area and would like to hear from others in our area that would like to discuss topics and ideas for preparedness in times of trouble. Any one interested? Let me know.
