    I assume many of the infamous militias were simply people doing pretty much this same thing. But indeed there were a few nuts in there as well. The popular media has painted them all with the same brush. I’m sure some very innocent people associated with militias were caught up in law enforcement actions against them and paid a price for their association. I have some real concerns about creating a group where one or more of the members might well do something inappropriate or illegal and by association involve me in their legal mess.

    Southern Prepper’s comments about networking and bringing our respective families into our tightest circle of like-minded preppers really hits home with me. I often give a lot of thought to how I would handle a situation where empty-handed family members arrive at my doorstep with nothing more to offer than their appetites. How could I turn them away? Knowing me, I couldn’t. But would I relish sharing my hard-earned lot with people (even family) who were too foolish or disbelieving to make the necessary arrangements and preparations for hard times? Not in the least.

    My oldest son is on-board; and that’s a very good thing because he’s smart and capable and brings a different perspective and way of thinking to a survival mindset than my military trained mind does. He is the yin to my yang. Or is it the other way around? Regardless, we complement each other quite well. Now if only I could get the youngest son away from the video games and lack of reality, we’d be an even stronger team.

    There are so many things to consider, just as SP said: home defense being paramount. Having like-minded people on-board would really help in that regard, as one or even two people can’t always be on alert for intruders and other ne’er do wells who might wish to do harm to our families. At some point, lack of quality sleep and general fatigue will bring anyone, even the hardiest of souls, crashing down. Without going into specifics on battle contingencies (wouldn’t want to bore the hell out of people more than necessary to make a point) it is always best to have shift workers, for every job, in a SHTF scenario. Some rest, some sleep, some work, some watch and listen and…well…if all work together, everyone (hopefully) survives.

    RobNPhx –

    Have you read Lights Out? Awesome book – I am about half-way so far. There are many “survival group” stuff in it as well as community defense stories. It is a long book – but well worth it.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Haven’t read it, but have heard about it. When time permits–like so many things–I’ll have to take a look. Thanks for the recommendation.
