If SHTF, should you head for the city or country?

If SHTF, should you head for the city or country

There’s always been a lot of debate on whether you should stay in (or go to) a city if society collapses. Some say there’s safety in numbers and the city is best. Some say heading for the hills is the best option. Here’s what I think. This is gonna be a pretty big post but I want to make sure you have enough to think it through and enough resources to look at later.

You Can’t Eat Gold And Silver

You Can’t Eat Gold And Silver

In the event that a major crisis or emergency strikes the United States, you are not going to be able to eat your gold and silver. If we get into a situation where supermarkets get cleaned out and food supplies get very tight, you are going to wish that you had stored some things away for your family.

Unlike gold, silver is used in thousands upon thousands of different consumer products, so the physical supply is constantly diminishing. And historically, silver comes out of the ground at about a 10 to 1 ratio compared to gold, but right now the price of gold is about 65 times the price of silver.
