I don't think my neighborhood would fair too well either, but central Ohio will likely do better than NYC or DC and a damn site better than the deserts of the US Southwest. At least here we have rain and land to farm.

Linky broken..

And if you read the book "Patriots"
you'll see that Idaho is the place to go when we get to TEOTWAWKI.

Link fixed, thanks. I agree, I read Rawles on a pretty regular basis. Not sure I'll ever be able to flee to the Cascades, but I agree with the general precepts of be prepared, especially with our Prez playing "who blinks first" with Congress and the debt ceiling. Nothing like the possibility of a total global economic meltdown to bring out the cooperation in DC.
