  1. Russ, As things couldn’t get worse. I did some research on how many people could be effected first by this weak solar cycle. And it could happen this winter of 2013-2014 and, I was shocked!! As per the website called ATHROPOLIS. There are 4 million people living in and around the arctic circle in the northern hemisphere!!! You can also get weather updates all year round from the arctic from this website. Here’s the link http://www.athropolis.com/arctic-facts/fact-arctic-pop.htm. I hope these people are ready to leave on moment’s notice. As weather conditions could go down very fast and could be life threating. They will be the first to feel the lack of the sun’s energy this solar cycle once were past the max. Anthony

  2. I highly advise buying freeze dried and can goods. I keep roughly 6 months of food on hand and dont feel it is enough. However you do not need to be faster than the bear just faster than the slowest member of your party. The average American has less than a week of food in the house. The shelfs can empty at the local store quickly so shop early for best selection.
