When i prep I always keep his site in mind, it's like a real time account of what we could be facing in the future.

Good stuff Darlene. Crime & Insecurity/CAR is one personally need to think about in very near future. DH has been pushing this frugal squirrel to trade cars. Dislike idea of spending money for another vehicle, but it's time I suppose. (This post reminded me – again - the last thing I'd want is to be stranded along some highway or even worse gravel road with car trouble.) Plus I really need a small SUV type for carrying things in the back. A truck would be good but need the people space too.
He mentions one of the things if could do over is 4x4 vehicle. Are all SUV 4x4's? I'm curious on peoples thoughts about that as wouldn't 4x4 get less mpg and be a lot more expensive to drive? Course if the SHTF would be driving a lot less than do now (extra travel for work training etc) Assuming could get or afford gas at all would probably be restricted to office. Since a public agency thinking it would still be operating if at all possible?? But the less mpg would not be a good thing right now. Am part of the "country" group so just the drive into "urban" category every day uses quite a bit fuel.
If it ever got to the point I had to drive up on the sidewalk to go around a riot or be concerned about using bumper for battering ram… thinking I would have to consider staying home and pray had prepared well enough ahead for loss of income … until then…
Anybody drive a SUV and have recommendation of what model to buy? PM me. TIA.
Who's next? What ideas did this post bring out for you on prep weaknesses or needs?
We don't own an SUV. Drive a van and a truck with a cap on back. Just can't go into debt at our ages.
