I am 59 years old. I have been somewhat of a survivalist/prepper since the late 70’s-early 80’s, but more seriously since 2011. I have 80 acres of Forest and house in Northern WI. This would be my ultimate retreat if things got so bad that I and family were forced to live there year round.
But I would prefer to bug in/ stay put at my house in SE WI. I have well and 1 acre. I can grow garden and have at least 6 months of food stashed. plenty of guns and ammo, and med supplies. I am currently putting together my own off grid solar power in case of grid down situation. I totally agree with Selco and others about low profile and unobtrusive preparations.
The worst aspect of survival in our area is the winter. You need to keep warm and have enough foods to make it. I have been a hunter/ fisher guys all my life and can do that no problem as long as the game is there, which in our area is plentiful, at least now. My neighbors are older retired people and are very friendly and I would include them as they are pretty adept at lots of basic skills.
I am a Christian and believe things are going to get bad because that is Biblical prophecy. You can deny that as BS, but even an obtuse idiot would have to agree that we as a country are on the downside.
