This has become problematic post-Covid, unless you stay within the territorial waters of your own country. Paperwork and clearance has become much more excruciating...Liveaboards abroad are trapped or prevented from hailing a port.

Even at the best of times, you still need a home based to register the vessel, and all the 'virtual anchor and chain' that entails. The laws of your flag pertain on-board as well, in international waters, and the flags of the host country when in their waters. A little known fact. So, US laws apply when in the middle of say the Atlantic, if you are US flagged.

At sea, no poles required for decent fishing. You can drag a lure from a large hoop reel of line.

Compass is worthless without a sextant and good charts. GPS plotter the norm, but better have a backup.

Your vacation is more like a full-time job. Boat duties and maintenance and repair are a constant.

Most folks view of care-free sailing is like a privileged millennial's view of socialism. Idyllic without understanding the innate system at play, the nitty-gritty details and harsh realities.
Plus you have to get used to never having your stuff feel completely dry or completely clean...

I see right now how you gonna be....

When you stumble outside early one morning with a nice cup of joe, trying to wake up.....glance over to the hillside, and you just might be staring at a huge painting of my bare redneck ass....

:cool:


I bet it's cratered, like the moon..

The original question was, *If Life In The US Becomes Untenable*.

We are nowhere near that point. I would be looking at Perth if we end up with new laws, and reduction of freedoms that I personally wouldn't be able to fight. If individuals try to step on my freedoms, we're going to have a nasty battle.

Too many men and women died for this country protecting our freedom, I will be dipped in shit before I leave it behind.

For fucks sake everyone, stand your ground and don't let anyone take away your rights or freedom.

We have fought tougher battles than this and the problem is nobody is fightng back.

Politicians have abandoned the citizens of this country, and now are poised to remove everything we stand for because they don't have the balls to stand up and do the right thing. They are bought and paid for by anyone and everyone with money to donate or funnel to their families.

You want to see this shit stop, bring in law enforcement, swat, national guard, and even the military to provide law and order. We have defeated many an enemy doing this and now the enemy is in our backyard.

There is an effort going on here to defund the police, which I found ironic as hell. As I believe the only thing protecting the bad guys is the rule of law, which most people respect.

If there are no laws, and no police to protect you then run if you care,But I Ain't going fuckin nowhere. If there are no police to come after the bad guys then we should.

If mob rules are what governs our country, then we need a different mob. It appears it's the only thing officials listen to anymore.

All the above, That is what's really going on. Yet the MSM "commentators" won't narrate as such. If they do, they bring in a guy to showcase him as a "crackpot" while they they bring in some slick, trendy asswipe to make him seem like a nut.

I don't have to even look at MSM to see that as a tactic.

But that is what's going on We see it every day. But we see it in the population centers, not in the rest of America.

I'd like to point out to all of you, This shit you see on the news isn't "all of America".

It's the population centers, and only select picks of mayhem at those population centers.

This is what the MSM wants you to see.

Go take a drive. Get out of town, way out of the city limits, no matter where you are in the USA.

Get off at some rural exit. Go down some county road.

How much mayhem, sign carriers, Tweaker-scragglebeards or Blue-haired, Nose-ringed Buffarilla Marxists do you see?

That's your "America" people. Amber waves of grain. Purple mountain majesty.

It's a big fucking country, people. You don't have to go that far to get away from it all.

And if you keep giving the blue-haired, nose ringed, militant Nazi strap-on dykes or the smelly scragglebeards, or the angry , threatening BLM mob oxygen, they will continue to breath down your neck.

Think about it. If everybody stopped watching MSM cold, cold turkey, and wrote in why (because of the shit I just listed getting all the oxygen), and that you will not return until they start showing some journalistic responsibility and start doing their part to kill this shit.

They will lose mass advertising revenue. Want to hurt them? Hurt them in the wallet.

Want to hurt the stinky, B.O-heavy, Unwashed Scragglebeard, Zit-picker "Antweaka" Fuckstick, the Blue-haired, Nose-ringed Militant Nazi Strap-on, Gender-Bender She-Bison? Want to stick it to the Ugly, Shoot-each-other, Threatening BLM mob? -stop giving them oxygen. Stop making them a factor in your everyday lives. Believe it or not, YOU control what you absorb. I know. Because I stopped absorbing it. I only hear about it here, because I have to.

Get..

The Fuck..

Off of...

TWITTER.

For chrissake, DROP IT. Get it out of your fucking life.

I haven't watched the MSM news for years. Going on three years now. And now even the local news? Not for about 6 months. And three years ago, I rarely watched it at all.

I don't have Antifa. I have mahogany.

I don't have sign-waving militant idiots. I have fret boards. inlays. Truss rods.

We don't do "BLM" . we go for drives in the country.

The largest reason I got caught-up in any of this shit is you guys. I have to moderate this mess.

Some of you guys.. Sheesus. You wear this shit on your sleeve like a rolled-up pack of cigarettes.

"Need some BLM 100s? Wait, I got some Buffalo-Marxist Lights.."

It's your talking point every fucking day. All day. All night. Tomorrow all day. Tomorrow all night. Some of you are CONSUMED with this shit.

Get the fuck away from it before it destroys your mind.

Dave, I agree with you... but temper it thusly:

1. I never viewed this thread as a response to the situation, as it stands. OP posed "If..." not current SITREP today (and also not necessarily 'when'), which I take as an 'Imagined Scenario' which replies should be based around. Doesn't even have to be forecasted with certainty... But much like John Lennon's 'Imagine' does for post-scarcity collectivism, it's fun to perform thought experiments for SHTF in good ol' USA.

I am not a doomsday prepper or end of days sooth-sayer, but I may toy with playing on on the interwebz... I plan my life like the government plans its continuity of operations, within my budget. I've got a 50 year strategy; it will be adjusted according to a contextualized situational understanding and incorporate contingencies for all scenarios, each according to their gaussian probability, arrayed within a quantitive risk matrix.


2. Getting folks stoked and riled up for a wake-up can be constructive, assuming one has the personal sense to remain centered about it all. Superficial assessment of the situation unfolding before us has led to complacency... and as admitted, got America's ass down a hole of sorts. Need to pay attention. There are forces at work, their action can will have direct relevance to our everyday lives, and this can happen suddenly and with severe impact.

I only need to look at my Commonwealth of Virginia, how it changed course on a hard jibe. Concentrated groups of newcomers [Edro would say Carpetbaggers] plus a flood of outside money from BloomSoros have sent us spiraling into enormous upheavals and convulsions. This is not conspiracy crazy-talk the forensics have been well vetted. And it's not enough to say move around to the back of the plane, and around the country, although that's part of the cure. The Appalachian Valley, Blue Ridge, Piedmont, and Southern Coastal areas all groan from what NOVA and other urban areas have wrought. I have experienced this firsthand, and now see things like a flip book where others are looking at scenes dissolve frame-to-frame.

So my mantra: keep perspective, but remain ever vigilant and appropriately engaged.

And that's a .... piece peace of my mind.

Everybody have fun out there. :cheers:

Where would you go? Anyplace you know of on the planet to go to escape the insanity? Give me some ideas. As much as I love the United States, the last 6 months has transformed it into something I don't recognize. Not saying I'm planning on leaving but was just thinking about what are the alternatives? I can't come up with anything attractive.
I'm not going anywhere at all. I don't buy into all the damn bullshit making the rounds these days. .

1000000% correct dave

they want you to believe this what everyone is thinking and you need to think that way........it is still a small minority of people that honesty believe the trash posted online and over the networks.......

ignore it all...the part that sucks is the group that has organized this shit show to further their agenda has made it obvious they are going for broke and do not give a shit.... they are trying to destroy America at any cost.....

i have no idea why the insane effort and money being spent to turn America into a 3rd world county works to anyones advantage....what do they think it will achieve?

but i am goin on with my life as they wont influence me one bit but i will do whatever i can to stop their destruction of the greatest county ever made........

......climbs off soap box

Just do what I do. Live in the boondocks and stop watching the news. Anything important that happens I seem to find out rather quickly anyway.

And if you're at least middle aged, remember you will probably be dead before everything goes to hell.

According to many many people all through history, the world has always been going to hell, ever since it first formed.

Some have and do think, literally. Like they are waiting for apocolypse or the second coming of Christ, or the world to explode because the Mayans stopped their calendar.

Me? I just think too many Americans have lives that are much too easy now, and because of it they create drama and problems where they either did not exist, or not to the extent they want everyone to think they do. Maybe they ought to come down to the farm here so I can put them to work.

That’s funny. Us Montana folks don’t think to highly of Missoula. It’s the most Californicated city here next to Bozangeles.

One trip down Reserve st. will make you think twice about what’s happening in Montana.
Yeah, but I’ll take Reserve St over anything in CA.
Bozangeles.... :lol:
That’s where my acoustic was made.

A little honest, hard work would do a helluva lot of people a whole lot of good.

That's a better employment of useful idiots than any movement non-profit. I'd even approve of tax incentives to get them on the farm. Got high fences?

I worked on a farm in my younger days......

Had I ever been on welfare, having to work on a farm to get it would motivate the hell out of me to get a marketable skill.....

It's too hot for some folks to walk to the mailbox and back.... They don't know hot.... or cold...
