    I had a friend that was looking at getting a HUGE amount of $. At that time he was looking at buying an island…. Then it hit him…. When you have an Island you don’t have a dentist, you don’t have police, you don’t have grocery stores, you are building civilization from scratch. Things like roads, telephone lines, electric lines all have to be shipped and built and…… maintained.

    Hearing this from him, I then related how much this was the exact state of affairs with prepping when your primary system you have depended on for so many years might go away, it is hare to adapt and make the changes needed to survive. Cuba did this when they lost relations with the USA, they made the transition but they also lost people in doing that transition.

    It is endless trying to prepare for everything, and I have come to the conclusion you cannot. That said one can prepare for the essentials needed for life, and build a community that shares your values.
