Re: How did Venezuela end up this way?

Hi! Still alive & still in Vzla, I've just been really busy trying to get my surgery done. Things here have calmed down a lot politically speaking, some small demonstration here and there about salaries and healthcare but nothing big. Economically the situation is awful, today the US $ just reached ...

Re: How did Venezuela end up this way?

ARe you allowed firearms because your in the military? With enough money and connections, maybe... A legal gun can be incredibly expensive, US$ 2.500 for a glock17 with a little less use than Jenna Jameson is not unheard of, plus almost the same amount for the paperwork and you have to be well conn...

Re: Dealing with picky eaters

I suspect in the PAW, that will be a self-correcting problem. I remember my grandmother telling me about her younger brother who was a picky eater growing up. Then he was drafted, sent to Korea, and became a POW in a Chinese camp. When he eventually came back home, he ate everything that was put in...

Re: How did Venezuela end up this way?

Great Information! Thank you! I hear you about the value of items when bartering varying tremendously based upon supply and demand. I was interested in the agricultural area because preppers seem to migrate towards farming and live stock. You confirmed what I have seen from the outside. While farmi...

Re: How did Venezuela end up this way?

Wow. Thank you for the insight. A few more questions if you do not mind. Is there any kind of barter economy and if so what are typical barter items? The last time I was in Venezuela (admittedly a while ago) there was a thriving agricultural base in the country. How has that faired? There was also ...

Re: How did Venezuela end up this way?

I greatly appreciate your on-the-ground update, plagaboy. I am both terrified and fascinated at the same time by the situation in the region - I think that is a common response to many unfolding disasters though. Do you have any recommendations for people outside of Venezuela for ways in which they...

Re: How did Venezuela end up this way?

Hi! Long time lurker of this forum, just recently decided to register to share some of my experiences in this constant chaos while I can. The situation here is really bad, power has been a bit more "stable" in the last week, but we get "scheduled cuts" on a daily basis, these cuts rarely coincide wi...
