I’m still digesting everything that happened at the SelfReliance Expo. I’ve met so many wonderful people that I can say it far exceeded my expectations. It was so nice to meet like-minded people within the industry of survival and preparedness. So kind, so friendly. Same thing for the people attending, some were people that had read my book or blog (often both) and that had come from far away to meet me. It was definitely humbling to see that. I can’t thank you all enough.
As I talked with people I understood that one of the recurring topics of this website, the issue of security, will indeed be one of the main points for Americans in the coming decade. Fortunately some are already well aware of this problem, but for many it will indeed be a nasty awakening. The amount of homes that are within certain isolation is significant. Until not that long ago being away from main urban locations meant that you avoided the predator that was too lazy to look beyond a few yards. As the crisis goes on though, the problem increases and is already reaching those safe places where people didn’t even lock their doors. It will be no time until criminals both organize into better prepared groups and see the advantage of hitting places that are out of sight.
This video explains what happened to a friend of mine just a few months ago. The farm is hard to get to, and they have several people both living and working there. Listen to my explanation of how the bad guys took over the compound and think of ways in which you may improve your own security at home.
Take care everyone!
