Have we settled on a place for our new commune with earthship housing and people we'll all like? I really liked DC's Wyoming idea. We could stake our claims. We could have our own vegetable gardens and we can raise cattle and chickens together. We could harvest our own power and collect our own drinking water. The government couldn't interfere in our lives because we wouldn't need them! (Of course, they might mistake us for a cult and take our children from us, or storm our compound - think FLDS or Waco/Ruby Ridge.) But if we pay our taxes, maybe they'd leave us alone. Then when the Apocolypse hits, we'll all be safe and secure in our obscure little commune in the vast Wyoming wilderness. No one would even have to know we were there. Also, if we lived that far out of civilization, it's likely that when the next (inevitable) plague hits we won't be affected by it. We'll have to have fashion mags though, because I do not want to be stormed by the feds while I'm wearing my prairie dress because my one fashionable outfit is hanging on the line. Can anyone here sew, BTW?
