I have lost all hope for this country and the survival of anything that looks like the life we live and have lived. So the country and the world will be up side down and in a total mess. Food, water and so many other things will be money and the dollars you now hold will become toilet paper or a good fire starter. Gold and silver will always have value but the real value will be in needed supplies. You can't eat gold or silver, I do know you can trade it for food. But an item is only worth something if you can get someone to buy it or trade for it from you. You can have 1000 oz. of gold and if no one wants it or will buy it or trade for it does it still have any value? I have some gold and silver because I know I may need it but I bank the mass of my preps into food, water, tools and other supplies. Something as small as candles or matches could have big time worth in a post collapse event. Think of it no power, no heat and no lights and then you find some candles and matches in you stash, this would change your world. How can we prepare ourselves to survive the coming collapse? One word............. Prepping!!!! We need to prep and prep like crazy. I plan to work on my preps all weekend and I hope you do the same, because our time is getting shorter as each day goes by. Step up your prepping and add more of the needed items and check your prep for cracks and fill them ASAP.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. Pete
