going to need to make a map on how to find it later.  If you would post that map we could help to make sure it works ok.

Will do.  Do not know if it would be worth your while to go looking though.  I can only afford to hoard maybe 3 or 4 C notes.

This guy thinks you should have 6 months stash.  His points are pretty well reasoned out.

Folks think that an "apocalypse" means the end of all things.  I guess we get that impression from Hollywood.

California sliding off into the Pacific, (if only we could be so lucky).  Zombies. Plague.

Please consider that the "end of the world" can be a very personal event.  Affecting just one family. 

Look at what happened in Zimbabwe.  What is happening in Venezuela.  What is getting ready to happen in South Africa.  How do those families feel?

My great - grandfather lived through the "apocalypse".  Bank "absorbed" his assets in '30 then closed.  Revenuers took his considerable land holdings for unpaid taxes.  His family survived because he "stole" his own mule team and hid them in the boot-heel swamps.  He was able to produce and they did not starve.

This kinda self-inflicted disaster is not new.  Hell Rome and 56 other countries went through it. 

Whose to say America and the Western world are different ..... this time? 

Who's to say that the powers that be won't expropriate all of our assets and boot us from the country? Its happened before.

Ya know ..... if the social stigma of being prepared is just tooooo great to bear .... well think of it as a self funded, private, insurance policy.  You have health/life/car/property insurance right?  This is "Oh Sh_t" insurance.


Every time I deposit/withdraw Kano cash, the bank records each and every bill's serial number.  Going in or going out.  Have been for years.  So fretting over a magnetic stripe in the bill is kinda moot.

I'm a big fan of reading history.  Here is a fairly accurate account of how we ended up here.

I have greatly appreciated responses, especially Lee 2 for his generous sensibility.  The Nerd comes in second.  (Not that this is a contest, just my salvation)  The history of finance in America since 2008 has been 'grand-theft' from every unregulated institution in my country.  I need not count them for you.    Others may have had trouble transliterating my vernacular.  So be it.  But thank you, one and all.

Too bad no one had a guaranteed answer for you.  Although sometimes you need to know what is going on with some other threads as to sometimes responses on the one you are on.  And yeah, sometimes it takes a little leg work of your own instead of sitting back and waiting for someone to do it for you.
