since most here seem to be “staying home” if things go bad, what are some of your home defense ideas? Duress words with the family. This is something we all know in the house, and something that can be said in a normal sentence and not sound out of the ordinary. I’m in the process of putting a fence and gate at the road, not just for that, but to keep animals in, I have a way to turn on barn lights from the house, etc. One of the things my wife and I are starting to do is walk more. Though I live off a pretty travelled road. I know of ways to minimize traffic, and alternate ways to get somewhere if need be. We do have a place to go, which is 2.5 miles from the nearest country gravel/blacktop rd, but always looking for ways to improve.
