Between that and an email conversation with a new friend from Gen Con, BenC, who not only has the same apocalyptic fascination I do but is also doing something about it, I should have some interesting dreams in the coming weeks. BenC and I have been discussing our own preparations and we have pointed out things that we each are doing that the other could do with a minor bit of effort. Plus, he has me pondering the idea of taking some medical classes for general practical medicine as well as midwifery. He's pointed out that there is a huge midwife movement afoot that seems to be upsetting the AMA.
We have also been comparing the Grants Pass scenario versus the slow collapse of civilization. I have to tell you, it is really interesting to talk about this sort of stuff with someone who has done as much thinking about it as I have and who has actually started doing something about it. I'm really glad ivan23 introduced the two of us.
