Well reading MM's posts it appears we are seeing movement on the peakoil front..Out of curiosity: how does PO figure into the average monkey's plans? what specific preparations are you making with an eye towards depletion? I have envisioned PO the be the trigger for tshtf that y2k was not. Figure its a good time to get into "bicycle shape" again, and have been grabbing bicycle repair /maint books. Besides transport, a bike on rollers mcgyvered to charge batteries may be a handy rig to have. building garden soils has a generic benefit whether its PO or some other problem. I tilled twice the garden plot with the neighbors gas powered tiller now, while gas is readily available and cheap. Anybody else?
