GK's got a pretty good situation. He's better positioned already than most people who would like to have a retreat. Just being in that area is a major plus. [/i]
The area that MELVIN is in, is an excellent place to hunker down in. Or, if a person did have to bug out from Pagosa Springs, there are a lot of places to go to, with in a short distance.
The problem for MELVIN, is his age. MELVIN is fifty-two years old, according to his drivers license. At fifty-two years old, you're rapidly going down hill, physically. How is an out-of-condition, fifty-two year old man going to ride a mountain bike all over those Colorado Rocky Mountains. I think MELVIN had better look at how the terrain is stacked on end
, in his area, and develop a better plan of attack.
Too bad OLD MELVIN is afraid of horses.
Come SHTF he's probably going to stay put, fort up at the homestead, and chuckle his ass off at the poor schmucks who read the web and took off on foot or mountain bikes to be hobos of the apocalypse.
I think MELVIN, is just dumb enough to try and prove all of his wacky survival hypothesis'.
As for SHTF, there is another world war coming and a blind man can see the economic future holds a tidal wave of grief. That's also not counting civil unrest in the USA over racial and political strife plus whatever Al-CIAda decides to do next.
I think you are right, about a coming Third World War.
I think you are right, about a coming Great Depression, worse than the one that hit in 1929.
I think the middle east type of Terrorism against americans, and american targets, at home and abroad, are going to be a continuing fact of life for us. Some of our own citizens may join in the terrorists. Louis Farakhan probably has contingency plans already made. Unhappy groups, with their tender feelings on their sleeves, may be a facator to contend with. The middle east events are showing them how to act out
. Sooo, home grown terrorists are probably going to be a fact of life. Anyone want to accuse me of profiling?
I wish I didn't think that way, but I can't see any other viable scenario for the United States.
There isn't going to be a massive, earth shaking apocalypse, as espoused by MELVIN, where people are out causing massive, nation wide, continuing riots, in the streets. I don't think hordes of ravening refugees will desecreat the country sides either. This may happen close in to some major cities, but not all over the country.
However, I think there will be, many people like MELVIN, who will probably have to be dealt with, using extreme prejudice.
