74, We will never be 100% prepared. I think that you are ahead of the game since you know it is coming and so many do not see what is coming.
Right now the cheapest long term food is rice and beans so buy as much as you can so you can help your family and friends that do not see what is coming.
The Holy Father will be meeting Obama on Sept 23 a date that many have been pointing to for over a year or more. I believe Sept 23 is not the end date but the beginning of a long hard collapse. This total collapse may take 5 to 6 years to happen. How long will it be I do not know but it will be a long one since it will be world wide and may include a large war. I hope I am wrong!!!! I will be very happy to be wrong on this.
