the only advice I can give you is to educate yourself. You have the most powerful information gathering tool in the history of the world at your fingertips. The World Wide Web. Use it wisely, and often. Nobody can tell you if your stove or lights will work. Nobody else knows where or how you live. In the year or so left before the (possible) crash, you can find the answers to these questions, and prepare. However, like so many other things in life, it will not be easy, and no-one is going to give you the key. Read the previous posts to this forum. There's a lot of valuable information, and many good people sharing it. Good Luck...

I have to agree with "Tom's Take" to squirrel youself away after you've made preparations (sp?) when living among so many people

Good luck...

Set a date, like end of this year or very early next, to be OUT of the city and IN the country. Where there is a will there is a way. ("Tom's Take" is the Plan B that you never want to be a part of, no matter how deep your burrow.) This, and stored food and water, is bare minimum for realistic Y2K preparation.

- fence your yard - after you fence, plant firethorn (one inch long sharp spikes) or bramble fruits like blackberries - have a backup for anything that needs electricity - get a dog - take a weekend and turn the power off and see how you fare
