Sierras - Shasta - Lassen - and High Forest Coastal Regions for probably 6 weeks with what I could carry in and acquire.
I know how long I can survive because I've tested myself.
Fewer than 1% of 1% of 1% could survive that long that well.
After that time ones "peace" starts to un-ravel if one does not have "long-run" survival skills + culture.
Farmers can go work a Farm even after being off the farm for 12 years
#1 They have long-run farming skills
#2 They have long-run farming culture
Back-breaking Construction Workers can go work Back-Breaking Construction Work even after being off-the-job for 12 years (assuming reasonable health)
#1 They have the skill
#2 They have the culture
What you're telling me and that everyone is "thumb-upping" you over is that what 5% (or more) of the country has these skills and that the loss of 95% of the people is acceptible?
Because I am positive that most people could not survive in the wilds -- mostly owing to culture.
I'm not saying it will come to this.
People keep ignoring my central argument that CONSUMPTION not GUNS will change the course -- as Ron Paul has said.
Maybe we can start "thumbs upping" Consumer-Sovereignty (Mises) and stop "fantasizing" about a Guns-Sovereignty.
But that's cool we had the 911-Truther and the Birther (I coined that phrase) distractions now we can have he guns-maintains-sovereignty distraction -- old baby-boomers as "outdoor survival" experts -- I mean we are like two or three generations away from the average person being 4 or 5 generations ex-farmers. Let alone hunters and long-run survivalists.
