My husband pointed something out that I had not considered. I had wanted to consider a windmill, but hubs pointed out that in a collapse, nothing points out that you still have electricity, and possibly food, like a giant windmill.
If you live in an area that has good wind more than 50% of the year, it's always a good investment.If you decide to go that route, feel free to ask questions, it's part of my expertise in the alternative energy field.
You mean I am not windy enough? In all seriousness, here in MN wind is a much better option than solar would be. The daunting aspect is, of course, the up front cost.
I'm ready. I won't be bugging out though, unless my area is hit with a nuke. Other than that, staying put and defending my home.Have over 5000 rounds of ammo.
Hi, decided to stop being a ghost on this forum and start participate in this discussion as I'm very interested in it.It's very hard to emmigrate to Japan, I have a uncle there and only reason he was accepted is because he is a millionare and married a japanese woman. Germany would be Schengen which is not that hard for an american, but still its a process and if the US economy collapses i'm sure EU will put up emmigration block on the US, we don't want any more westerners, only muslims allowed So I think Latin America would be better option for americans seeking to escape.In the end though I don't think it will matter with CELAC Communist Union in Latin america and the EU transformation into Communist system. We will all be oppressed. I have two options if the system become totalitarian and the EU economy collapses, one is a house on an island connected by undersea tunnel. Living near the ocean will allow for deep sea fishing making yourself self suffiecient in that respect, this could also be traded with inlands survivalists for other food types. Then again the terrain on the island is very open and rocky, impossible to flee if the situation calls for it.The other option is a house in the mountain, my family are not exactly survivalists so I'm saving money to buy the property from them and turn it into a self sufficient resident area. Sort of like what "Solar" and others on this forum have done except not as pro. The mountain house I have is near to a small stream and a large river so I think hydro is the way to go for me. Also the mountains have allot of deer, moose and grouse.The problem for me though is aquiring guns and ammo. I have a hunting licence and thinking of buying hunting rifles and shotguns. Handguns are pretty much illegal, but you can aquire them for sport reasons, but the barrel must be kept at the shooting range. And in any case the EU is sure to pass total gun abolition laws when they turn communist, so being registered as a potential terrorist for owning huntin rifle will would be more a threat than the short term advantage of owning a legal firearm.What I'm considering though is buying a 3D printer and manufacture handguns without getting registered in a database. Anyone got any advice or know anything about manufacturing your own guns? The other option for me is getting it illegal which I don't want to do.
