Looks like you pretty much use the same system I do.**snip**
If things look like they are going to last longer than a year, I'll get in line with the sheeple from the beginning for my handout and save what I can for when that stops. If it lasts more than two years, well… I like a majority of the population at large are just SOL. There are not many folks these days who are prepared (both in land, knowledge and supplies) to be self sustaining for an indefinite amount of time. I know, I know many here are going for that but for me it is unrealistic unless something magical happens.
