    I have recently convinced my wife that this Country is in trouble. She was reluctant to believe it, at first. Then she started to pay closer attention. Now she is convinced that we should prepare for the worst. I'm hoping to learn from people with more experience. I am a former Marine. Combat arms. So as far as skills. I have some. I need to know where to find items, and also what items would be handy.
