Yes, you will need the brogans when you get here because you might twist an ankle in those heels climbing the hill to the outhouse and to help feed the chickens that will supplement the canned goods. Some practice might be required to toughen up to enable the use of corncobs though since we won't be able to bug out to replenish the TP supply and it is unlikely that Sears will be sending any more catalogues. lol

Back a few years ago there was a woman,(born and raised in Houdorous)in several of my college classes. They were always in political turmoil and when the sirens screamed parents drove madly to the schools to pick up their kids then headed for the mountains. Her mom kept the "running bags" in the closet by the front door. Contents? Toilet paper! Because "there's no way I'm going up in those mountains with 5 kids and no toilet paper!" Lol

When I was younger, I spent many days on the water. Once going when it was 9 degrees and it only got up to 17 degrees for a high. We had to keep dipping our tackle in the water to keep the rod eyes from freezing over. On the way back, we passed a golf course and said "Look over there at those fools knocking that little ball around as cold as it is". LOL

To each his or her own.

If the urban people down in lex starve out and large organized bands of armed scavengers (some are already pretty well organized gangs) start to rove in wider and wider patrols...ya'll head east. We've been laying up for winters and hard times for a long time and we know how to stick together in a fight. We're not to shabby when it comes to marksmanship either. Hillbillies are the original preppers.
Not that I'm worried much but if a shtf thing did hit we'd probably be some of the last to go. Unless it hit right dead on us that is.
When I lived in Deep South Louisiana, I use to joke that if everything went bad during Y2K, they wouldn't even realize it for several years. I think the metropolitan areas would crumble quickly. They would turn in on themselves and cannibalize their own city (figuratively hopefully not literally)

I dont know who that is up in the peanut gallery and I know you never let much get to you ..BUT
Hehehe You gotta admit I got to you more than anyone else on here ever has Wolf. Come on, remember? No other "detractor" could crack you for a long LONG time, but I got you steamed ONCE, pretty good. Remember you threatened legal action and everything?

You recovered faster than I have ever seen a poster recover but you were pretty mad during the transvestite ordeal...remember?
Hey, now we can look back on it and laugh but I think I steamed you a little anyways LOL.

I have to admit that I did see top shelf material early on too. Una and I exchanged a few PM's (very few) and I'm pretty sure we came to agree that you weren't highfalutin and stuck up at all- as we first believed. You even settled HIM down wolf, that was some feat. LOL He was one of the most determined men I've ever encountered God rest his soul. I think he was even more intelligent than he showed, and he showed a great pile of smarts- IMO.

A lot of people accused TUFF and I of being the same poster, not true. I wish I could come up with stuff that funny, and that fast.
I know when I meet someone on here with a faster sharper mind than I ever had or ever will, it happens all the time, But old TUFF was the creme de la creme . The man was dangerous! I think he could have made someone laugh till they died if he tried.
Good old Una, gone but not forgotten.

If the SHTF, we might find ourselves doing many things we would not undertake otherwise, much like the letter from a Rebel Private dated June 9, 1863:
"Indeed, as time passed, food and forage were at a premium and various expedients were resorted to. The privates of the regiment successfully undertook a decrease in the rodent population. In my weakened condition, I sent out a man to shoot a rat for me thinking I could boil it and eat it with relish, but the hunt failed to secure the game, and my fancy passed. The men cut up the young growth of cane, boiled it and made a delectable dish".

I don't recall that at all, but there was a time when my Identity was being hijacked. My biggest heated moment (and as you said, it never lasted long) was when UNA accused me of being a drunk after I said I had a couple of beers and he said no one ever had just a couple and you agreed with him. Even old "Don't Care" piped in and started calling me "Ancient Age" which was funny, because I have only had bourbon on one occasion in my life and got deathly sick instead of drunk. LOL The fact is, my belly won't hold more than a couple beers and I don't do any other alcohol at all except an occasional bloody mary and some sips of blackberry brandy in the winter. LOL

Fond memories of my Una Fart Tater. I tried to make him chuckle when ever I could.

Is there any evidence that cannibalism occurred during the civil war? I mean there was motive (hunger) and supply (dead bodies)
I think about those movies about plane crash survivors that resort to it and was wondering.

@ I am Poster.. and you will admit that I was the first to figure out what your ID really meant. Yes you did get under my skin a few times, but it was all in fun or certainly is looking back on it. Yes UNA was brillant and we both enjoyed the challenge. Some heated moments were feigned just to egg it on to see what new stuff he could come up with. Poor old soul passed on and is sorely missed.

You are the only one to figure it out so far, and I post all around the world sometimes. That is my username on a... kind of humanities egg head forum too, none of them have figured it out either.
This time I am poster was a peer, and she's also a.... friend with benefits.

I am not aware of any having been reported, but if there was any cannibalism it might be more expected at POW camps in Andersonville Georgia (Confederate) and Camp Morton in Indiana or Camp Douglas near Chicago.

Some good reading is "The Immortal Six Hundred".. A story of the cruelty to Confederate Prisoners of War" as told by John Odgen Murray (one of the 600) who survived on rotten cornmeal and onion pickle at Fort Pulaski, Georgia (after the Union took control) which can be visited going from Savannah out to Tybee Island.

Andersonville gets the most publicity and the Commandant (Henry Wirz) was hanged of war crimes for witholding food and medicines when the fact is that he had none. IMO Camp Douglas seemed worse because they supposedly had food to spare and still withheld it.

With my prior posts regarding advances in technology brought about by the Civil War....

The first attempt at a submarine was done by the Confederacy in an attempt to break the Union blockade of Charleston Harbor that was starving the South. The CSS Hundley looked more like a long metal cigar than today's submarines and had a long metal spar with an explosive on the end of the spar. It ran just under the water, but not very far under. It killed no less than 33 crew members in developement tests.

It's only battle was launched just north of Charleton Harbor. It successfully sank th USS Housantonic but went down itself killing the commander Lt. George Dixon and his 6 man crew.

@Miss E Font.. You questioned earlier about the female roles of the Civil War:

The most renowned female "saw bones" was Dr. Mary Edwards Walker who was frustrated over not being able to acquire a commission as a battlefield surgeon. One of her handicaps was her propensity to wear slacks against the traditional dress code of the day. He wore a girlish straw hat decked out with an ostrich feather.

She could perform arm and leg operations as well as any of her male counterparts and received the Congressional Medal of Honor in 1865.
