    YankeePrepper you are my hero! LoL I agree with you about fuel. When fuel hit 4.85 a gollon in pa 2 years ago I knew the repricussions. Thanks for your opinion patriot!

  2. Couldn’t agree with you more!

    @FrozenOne1976 I talk to a lot of shippers though my business and that led me to watch the national freight tonnage report and then finally fuel.

    Great vid. Was looking at the truck fuel sales your idea or did you hear about it some where? Either way thanks for sharing it with the rest of us. Thumbs up.

    Really nice reporting and sharing Yankee, thanks.

    When you read these reports you kinda wish it would just be zombies in the streets.

  7. Yankeeprepper | April 17, 2010 at 5:49 am |

    @Brantoc Agreed. I think fuel cost could be another tipping point.

  8. on a side note. I got 4000 rounds in long term military boxes.

  9. $4 a gallon fuel this summer will put a hell of a dent in this… Also watch the double dip from banking. $14 Trillion in loans are due in the next 36 months.

    Europe is in about the same position as us. Look at Grease and Iceland.. Others like Spain, and Italy are not far behind them.

    Mexico is going to Anarchy before we fail.

    It depends on what money is being spent to move those trucks and buy that fuel. If it is all government contracting, it is of no help to us. There’s a ton of money being spent in the contract world right now to support the government, but none of that money is helping us. It’s spending our money and our children’s future money. 🙁

  11. Awesome video with great information.

    I seen the recorded clip of that exchange. Scary. Very Scary.

    @Yankeeprepper haha, zing. Wasn’t there a Congressman who voiced concern about Guam capsizing a few days ago?

    And if his chemical density is low enough I suppose he COULD float.

    I seen an ex- trucker on disability that lives in Tennesee on Youtube, that is at least 400lbs +, and could probably be classified as an island if you could keep him afloat.

  16. eddivision15 | April 17, 2010 at 10:54 am |

    I have to agree with you that there will probably won’t be a big event at least not until the population is weak enough to easily be subdued. We will continue to see the round up of small groups and the bleeding of the middle classes capital and food reserves then they will make their move.

  17. CrystalHunter1989 | April 17, 2010 at 11:14 am |

    No man is an island.

  18. Thanks for the information

    Natural EMP could result from solar activity and the deterioration of our magnetosphere which has protected us naturally. At least NASA’a data confirms the shifting of the poles and the aforementioned magnestosphere condition. Disinfo or not?

    I was hoping for the zombie senario.

    ….if….if something environmentally catastrophic happens….or should i say when, because several scenarios are givens, they will happen, it is just a matter of time, that is fact….jellystone, solar flares & mass ejections, plate shifts….scary stuff

    especially considering that a week w/o electricity would likely cause calamity & mayhem in many/most urban areas with hoards of hungry angry people demanding their perceived right for others to provide for them….scarier stuff

    I agree with you about the vast amounts of ammunition that will be needed if a SHTF scenario does happen. one of the easiest ways to prepare for this need is to stockpile somewhere in the range of 10,000 or more large rifle primers(of small for 5.56mm) plus reloading gear. Other than primers, almost everything else you need can be made locally.

  24. Michigansnowpony | April 17, 2010 at 4:04 pm |

    I agree with your assessment. Baring something catastrophic, it’s going to be a slow slide. And yes, on the catastrophic end of things, an EMP is a very plausible, rather worrisome scenario to contemplate as a prepper.

    Freelance or contract work is going to be the wave of the future. Everyone needs a skill, that someone else needs in order to maintain there well being.

    2010 – 2012 Solar maxim has just started and things are going to become more and more interesting as this year moves along. We have a dust-bowl in the plains, read the story over at US TODAY. Food shortages, possible WWIII scenario things aren’t really on the up and up as MSM would have us believe.

    Good Luck thanks for posting and God Bless!
