Leopard, good thinking on your part, and thankfully all worked out well.
When I read your prior post, I had the exact same reaction as 74. From where I sit, the S has already HTF in SA. That the downward spiral is still in motion is another matter. The people that attacked that young man have lost any humanity they might have had. That the police are so casual about it says that either they don’t care or that they know that they can’t control it. I don’t know which is worse. A prepper analogy is we set aside supplies and learn new skills now because we can do it now and might not be able to later when “it” happens. Whatever your options are for possibly exiting SA and starting over are greater now than they will be when you are older or when the conditions in SA are worse and everyone is headed for the exit door.
