Some people bring swim fins to the knife fight, watch the other idiots kill each other, then take their stuff and swim happily out of zombie range.

Pretty cool. 

Have you ever though about just chucking it and moving to an island?

I have to admit that I like electric, running water and flush toilets.  A roof is good, too. 

I don't have central air or heat, a TV or a lot of other modern necessities.  I do have a rather large garden, I hunt and fish to add to my grocery runs.  I also have a tractor and some farm equipment. 

So, moving to an island wouldn't be all that much different, just without the ability to run to town.  Which I try to avoid as much as possible, anyways.

DS - I think so - smart  /  pretty girl make it all possible IMO.

DS - all the time

DS - not much terrestrial hunting on the island I'm guessing but some of the best fishing in the world - maybe even an occasional croc?

DS - I think they said it's 24 miles to Exmouth? - just boat rather than truck

When I was a kid, we lived in a logging camp in Alaska.  When the ferry picked up a raft of logs, they would drop off groceries.  If you wanted to go to the store or the doctor, you had to call for a plane to fly you into Ketchacan.  Radioing for a plane was quicker than trying to get there by boat, that took something like 8-9 hours, depending on sea conditions.

 A rough, hard life, but not so influenced by the whims and opinions of MSN or politicians, right? Hard work, clean fresh air and a sense of independence and freedom?

I can be just as angry at the jihadists for wanting to kill me, as they are angry with me for being an American.

And it taught survival skills to us kids.  There really were bears and wolves and they would eat you.  You didn't go wandering off by yourself.  You paid attention to your surroundings.  You didn't get so engrossed in something that you didn't stop and look around occasionally.  And you stayed the Hell away from where the camp dumped garbage.
