3. Economic Collapse Part 2, what COULD happen in USA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-LeU-tkBiI

the best preppers I found on youtube are, wouldn't you know it, r3VOLs; in fact I'd surmise that about 70% of American preppers are probably R3VOLutionaries, if not share much of the same sentiments:

1. David Kobler, aka SoutherPrepper1 and Scott Hunt, aka Engineer775 who are friends and business partners who live on a S. Carolina survival retreat with their family and a few others. They're fully living the 'prepper'-lifestyle, NOW. Kobler's a US Army combat vet who witnessed first hand in Iraq what happens when SHTF.

They were both featured on the original pilot episode of National Geographic's the DoomsDay Preppers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRMeZCF-60o

It's also been my personal contention that there's really no "bugging-out" and you cannot survive in the long run without a community of like minded individuals: those who are tactically proficient, preferably similar geopolitical and spiritual beliefs, various skill sets from healers/counselors (both physical and psychological)/doctors/nurses, engineers, tinkerers, designers/artists, musicians, etc. IMO, creativity as well as hard skill sets are a must, if you intend on thriving, not just surviving.

So I'd say slowly practice living with less and less resources, be they food, modern articles you may eventually see as nothing more than material excess in the long run, etc.

Kobler's 'survival community retreat' is one of the best examples I've seen. The other only community that was featured on Nat.Geo's D.Preppers that had a remote chance of realistic survival, IMHO, was the Texan former Vietnam vet's compound built out of shipping containers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-cwjgfVBUQ

Theirs, obviously may not be everyone's cup of tea, but if yours don't cover at least a few of the areas that that group covered in terms of resources, readiness, etc, it's gonna be a rough one.

Plus if you can't get used to living this way now, it's gonna be a long growth curve, one you may not survive through.
