Bob, how are they going to get there? Travel takes fuel and fuel takes
m-o-n-e-y. I think you will find that NOLA is the actual model of what
will happen. They're still waiting for the nanny state to take care of
AND, if one plans well, one chooses a place that could literally be called
"you can't get here from there."
WTSHTF, those city folks over in the "big" city that is closest to us aren't
going to head toward us, they're going to go the easy route, their usual
m.o. They'll head on down the valley, generally figuring, wrongly I might
add, that where there's money there will be food, etc. They won't even
think about heading to where "only poor people live." Besides, to get to
me takes two hours of rough driving and then you'd have to know where you
were going to begin with. Ain't gonna happen.
Lynda, living in Nowheresville!
