Here are a few more questions that I frequently get asked. Figured I would share with everyone.
Here we go…….
- What are you preparing for?
I am concerned about our economy. The shear mass of our national debt is almost beyond comprehension. I believe that it is factual to say that the debt clock will never, EVER turn backwards. This means that our debt will continue to grow until eventually government spending and taxes have grown to a point of no return. Although many believe we are already there – our current economic system continues to exist and for some – thrive. The US dollar will become devalued, those on the government dole will become a vastly larger majority, and inflation will increase exponentially. It’s going to get bad folks.
- When will this economic collapse happen?
Unfortunately my crystal ball takes a rare battery type only found in regional outskirts of Transylvania – and I am fresh out. I have no idea. It may be 5 years, it may be 40 years. There could be events that accelerate forward – we’ll just have to wait and see.
- Aren’t you concerned with OPSEC putting yourself out with this website?
I should have been – but it is too late now.
- Any chance of “A Survival Story” starting again?
That is a tough one. I really would like to but I just do nt have the time. For a span there I would write each night to be published the next day. For Part 1 it worked pretty well. However, Part 2 I felt like the quality really wasn’t there. I considered finding someone to take it over but nothing yet.
- What do you do for a living?
I work at a polymer extrusion facility as a Production Manager.
- Were you ever in the military?
One of my biggest regrets – no. I wish I had at least joined the National Guard when I was younger. I considered law enforcement but after having kids I gave up on that.
- Do you have a favorite survival knife?
I have several. My all time favorite is the Gerber BMF Survival Knife. Not made anymore (wish it was) – I sold mine years ago. BMF supposedly stood for Basic Multi-Function. I was always told it stood for “Big MF’er”.
I also have a Gutmann Explorer II Survival Knife. This is a cool knife developed during the Rambo: First Blood craze. Hollow handle, serrations along the back, big blade – mean looking thing. Useful? Sure but the hollow handle certainly provides a weak point.
Lastly – I have a Buck Hoodlum – actually two of them. Great knife!
- What is your favorite “apocalyptic” movie?
- Should I cash in my 401k/IRA to get supplies because “its” getting ready to hit the fan?
The short answer is no. It is certainly a personal decision. I have stopped contributing to mine – for the time being – and moved those funds towards preps. We’ll have to see what happens as to whether or not I restart my contributions.
- Do you have a favorite gun?
I love .22’s. My Ruger 10/22’s as well as the Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 are fun to shoot.
- How old are you?
- Where do you live?
- What is your opinion of the current administration in the White House?
- What’s your opinion on alternative energy? Solar or generators?
Solar is great for charging batteries – and running minimal equipment for short periods of time (unless you have a HUGE, expensive system). Generators can power high-drain equipment such as fans and drills-and help keep a refrigerator cold through a long power outage. The question is often which one to choose. I choose both! I have a small solar system for charging a few deep cycle batteries as well as a large 5500 watt genny and a small 1000 watt generator. Short answer for what can b a complicated topic.
