In the event of some SHTF situation, I think strength in numbers would most certainly be a huge asset to those that have it. I am not talking a TEOTWAWKI event but the strength in numbers could be just as important then, but I don't want to argue that point.
I'm curious how many of you have a strong network of like minded friends, family, and neighbors? Chris Duane suggests investing in Real Friends, Real Assets, and Real Skills. While a basic concept, it has me thinking about the concept a lot.
We are friendly with all our neighbors, we know them all enough that we would feel confident about approaching any or helping any. However I think only one or two have any thoughts toward prepping. I do not have anything like a Prepper Group that I hear some talk about. I'm trying to turn my family members more onto prepping for their own benefit. The long and the short of it I feel I need to concentrate more on building up real friends, particularly those with the same mindset.
How do you folks find yourself? Want to isolate or build up strong nearby ties? How are you doing with this goal?
