Someone at survivalblog.com linked to your book "Lights Out", so I spent many hours reading that. What a great read -- but that's probably old news to everyone here. I'm slowly getting prepared for the inevitable. Whether that comes via "The Burst", war, or a default on loans/derivatives/etc, I can only keep plugging away within my limits. I've started preparations, but the enormity can be likened to a camel passing through the eye of a needle. There's so much to do... Looking forward to reading and taking part in discussions!
