  1. I’ve been following Rural Revolution for years, but especially liked this article.
    Truer words were never spoken: “Minimalism is not a good strategy during a lock-down.”
    Will be forwarding it to others.

  2. I remind myself of that whenever my wife’s hobbies, as well as mine, seem to be taking up a lot of room in the house. Her piles of yarn and my canning supplies don’t bother me when I’m opening a jar of rabbit that we raised, or getting warm under a blanket that she made.

  3. Big Q – Truer words were never spoke. Unfortunately at this time in our lives, more is being taken than we can possibly keep, thanks to all the whiners that beg for more and more intrusion by the goobermint. It ain’t up to TPTB to provide for all your needs, that has never worked in the past and is impossible to work in any future scenario. Constantly work to change that, Trump is doing his best but methinks it is possibly a loosing battle. When it comes right down to it, we can’t take a farthing of anything we acquire with us. And we’ll be lucky HE lets out soul in.

  4. So cool to see this 2 part article. Been reading Rural Revolution on and off for years. I was just searching the site to see if you had sold your homestead. Is it still on the market?

    All the so called “hoarders”, LOL, were much appreciated when they could produce the things other people couldn’t find on the shelves and needed.

    Not to be a doom and gloomer, but I think we’re in for a rough ride in the upcoming months, maybe years. I’d keep prepping as much as possible.

    1. SaraSue, great insight in what you say. A rough ride, indeed.

      I will echo something Don and Patrice said, “Be resilient and roll with the punches. The “punch” could be anything – the loss of a loved one, the loss of a business, the loss of your home. Give yourself time to grieve, then pick yourself up and start over. People who do this report coming out stronger.”

      We will, inevitably, experience loss during this rough ride. Remember to share your sorrow with others. Trusting someone with your pain build strong bonds. Be clear when sharing pain that you do not want a solution, unless you do, and just want to be heard and accepted. Healing will come.

      God promises that.

      Carry on in grace

  5. Well written and timely article! Thank you, Don and Patrice Lewis!

    From your post: “Being prepared doesn’t guarantee you won’t be affected by a disaster. It just gives you a fighting chance, a survival force-multiplier.”

    True. True. True.

  6. Speaking of preps, found this at PSA: AMMO INC 7.62X51 149 GR M80 500 ROUNDS AMMUNITION.
    also .30 M1 Carbine, a box of 1080 in stripper clips and bandoleers.

    Also noticed they have several handguns in stock including Taurus G2C and G3C some Sigs and S&W’s and even a Ruger Security 9.

    You need to use JWR’s link to get to PSA so he gets the credit and a little remuneration.

  7. I have more faith in the economist prediction that it will be year 2023 before we’ll see fullness to a stabilization of global economy. Many things will change and factories as well as small businesses will continue to permamently close in the mean time. Nevertheless big box stores will thrive. Our consumer choices will keep narrowing. Glass jars with any kind of sealable lids are precious. Save and protect them. Reuse them carefully. JM2C.

    God Bless
