The closet thing I have to a group is a like minded friend. My dad is convinced the Government will round up everyone over 65 and execute them as being useless as slaves so he intends to go out in a blaze of glory. My mom is convinced we are all crazy and it will never happen and if something does happen the government will take care of them. My brother is 1500 miles away so no help there.
I plan to keep my options open. I want to stay put, but will bolt if I have to. Money is a real issue, as in I got none so my preps are along the lines of collecting stuff I can use without electricity to survive. I am a scrapper so I find all sorts of neat stuff while looking for scrap metal I can sell for cash.
