I have a rundown of a list of my friends and associates around the country and something quickly jumps out. A large percentage of the group residing in the old Confederacy states (especially Virginia) is prepared to the max, and I mean the super max. Most have me beat by a long shot because they are ranchers or farmers and have the space, the land mass, to get the personal security job done right. And get it done they have.
I have written that heading to a remote location is not doable for most because most Americans do not possess the skill set of my Virginia-based rancher and farmer friends. And Dick Young is in the same boat. I want to live on my island and have been addressing my weaknesses to the best of my ability. And there are, as I have written, a handful of benefits to my island base, including a powerful, at-hand military presence, an inability for big city hordes to get to the island, and docking facilities and airfields for receiving needed food and other necessities of life. Conversely, my northern friends and associates are almost to a one totally exposed, unprepared, and fully vulnerable. Also not surprising, many look at my views with a fish eye. To some extent this is because most are in no shape at all to improve their security positions much. Yikes! How are you set?
