BUT HOW WOULD THEY KNOW YOU HAVE STUFF? Think all those people won't "bug out" toward greener pastures when they can? Are you going to run the gen non-stop to keep your porch lights on? Very subjective stuff here. Guns, SURE, that's a given. Just be sure you spend some cash on something to protect!
The cul de sac here is very quiet and far enough away from "the ghetto" that we won't have issues here if anything happens. Last hurricane that went through here, no problems except for lack of 2-stroke oil and chain oil. I've stocked up on both
Really the big concern I have now is sustainable living - working on a green house is one thing. I need to have a farm LOL
