Hi Kathy! Michigan is quiet! It's you and me!

Any specific discussions you'd like to see open up for Michiganders? Excited to see who will find/join us! What are your preparedness priorities? Our family has focused on the basics -- alternate location with shelter, food, sustainable future food, off-grid living and protection. It's always a pull as to where available resources should go next, right? I'm interested in hearing if anyone has dealt with their retirement savings yet -- as in self-directed precious metals so you can actually get them if the SHTF, etc.


Peak Prosperity in the Mitten

We invite preparedness-minded people in Michigan to join us for discussion and sharing. We seek to apply Peak Prosperity principles, news and information to our region. Let's see what happens and where interested families can work together in individual and community opportunities to protect, preserve and prepare for the next 20 years.

why is Chris cool on GLD?

I am new to precious metals but I understand the rationale for owning them.  I can buy GLD and SLV through my retirement plan with pre tax dollars, so that investment approach is very attractive to me.  However, Chris seems quite negative on GLD.  I would appreciate understanding why he (or any of you) feels that way.  Understand the pros and cons of owning GLD or SLV versus the physical metals will help me make a better decision. Thanks for your help to anyone who might care to respond.
