    I have one acre of land and can grow enough food to feed me and my girl friend, we are both disabled and don't draw much money. But by growing vegetables and my wood working and trapping hunting we do pretty good. Soon we will have chicken and rabbit so i'm hoping that will help even more. When i worked i made about $1000 a week that is about what i make a month now. I would love to go back to work but the old ticker want let me. But as long as i can do what i am doing now we are going to make it. Not trying to poor mouth or anything just saying how much you need to learn these skills this can happen to anyone.

    Shotgunpapa Good luck and at 78 I know the feeling. We all talk of TSHTF as a worldwide collapse of civilization, but on an individual level a stroke or heart attack, accident, etc can make it happen to you alone and I would rather be dead, than in some nursing homes I have visited. So my wife and I do everything we can to be as self reliant as we can.
