New member from South Miami

We live, work and play in South Miami and truly enjoy it here.  We also enjoy our second home in Montana.  Interested in meeting other like minded neighbors to share ideas about a more resilient and increasingly self sufficient lifestyle.  

I do not consider Miami survivable in the event of major social unrest and plan to panic early to avoid the rush getting out of town.  This sounds simply but not so easy when you think about it.  

Thanks and I look forward to a quality discussion.

How would you have fared in this home invasion attempt?

Watch this home security video of a recent Philadelphia home invasion attempt and honestly ask yourself: If these guys had done the same thing at my house, how would it have turned out?  (Don't just read my description of the home invasion below, because that will only engage you intellectually.  Watching the video will engage you emotionally too, and you need that to properly learn from it.)

Time to batten down the hatches?

Michael Snyder, in his signature way, is advising readers to batten down the hatches regarding your safety based on recent developments.  I live in Philadelphia so I battened down my hatches a long time ago. However, just this week a began carrying a second spare Glock magazine on my belt and wearing a Kevlar vest TO CHURCH (mostly because of a "premonition" re: ISIS).  Trouble is brewing, but I'm not sure I see it the same way Snyder does.

Real world survival tips from Ukraine (via FerFAL)

FerFAL, author of Surviving the Economic Collapse, recently posted some very valuable survival tips on his website gleaned from people who are surviving in the current civil war in Ukraine.  There are numerous very valuable lessons we can learn from the survivors' accounts and advice, and we should learn them now vicariously before we have to learn them by personal experience in the "School of Hard Knocks."

Home invasion armed response on camera

In an apartment building, a crazed man kicks in his neighbor's door wielding a machete intent on killing the two people inside.  The resident locks his door but when the crazed, homicidal man kicks in his door he fires three shots from his handgun, putting an end to the danger.  The crazy neighbor with the machete lives and will now stand trial on serious charges.


Expats and the Uprooted

This group is for the uprooted, the expatriots, the unemployed, single or homeless and for those who would help us in our efforts to become resilient.

All of us will have to face the realities of failing markets at the same time, but we are not all on an equal footing to weather the storm. The prolonged economic recession has left many without the resources we need to prepare and without the ability to act upon much of the information available on Prosperity.

Buying Strategies

So, I'm almost ready on a psychological level to start owning precious metals. I have some questions still lingering, though, and I was hoping for opinions.

"Bump key" burglaries

Here's a news story about a string of "bump key" burglaries in South Jersey all committed by the same suspect.  Considering how easy it is to gain entry into a home using a bump key and considering you can watch how-to videos on the internet, I'm amazed it doesn't happen more often.  But the fact is most burglaries don't involve bump keys or otherwise "picking" locks.  For instance, one of my neighbors just had a burglary in her home three nights ago through an UNLOCKED rear door.  Duh!

Mega-burglary in "super safe" suburb

Here's a megaburglary ($200,000 in jewelry and whatever else was in the safe) in a so-called "super safe" suburb (Moorestown, NJ). The house looks to me to be worth well north of $1 million.  The homeowners went away for the weekend leaving a broken alarm system and THE DOORS UNLOCKED!! because it's so safe in Moorestown.  (This is so monumentally stupid my spider sense warns me this may have been a insurance scam in which the homeowners are involved. I'm sure their insurance company is going to conduct a thorough investigation before paying out.)
