    True, but when the language is "for the foreseeable future" I take that to mean that I should file my taxes this year.

    So what would be a "prepers" plan for this event?

    moving away?

    I've read about this before. It would just be the greater continental United States that would be toast. If I recall most of the land would be completely unarable for years.

    But again this is a problem for our great great great great great great great....gaassssp....greatgreatgreat grandchildren.

    What, you don't have an underground volcano proof bunker?


    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    So what would be a "prepers" plan for this event?
    As a Natural Disaster Prepper. All you could do if this scenario were to occur is hope for the best or be out of the impact area when it went down. As it stands now I am just barely outside of the ash area. That's not to say there wouldn't be some impact still if the winds moved in the right direction. Anyhow I have staples to provide for my family for a year. With lakes and hunting available I should be able to sustain us for much longer. With my new purchase of a home in the woods, all I have to do is make it until this May and I will be secluded enough that it's unlikely to be attacked by mauraders. I am on a well and surrounded by lakes so I should have sufficient water, although boiling it may be in order. My neighbors are mostly like minded people so building a community again wouldn't be that difficult and pooling resources should prove to be a positive. Health would be the only unforseeable issue. Really don't know what to expect as far as health concerns since I am not in the blast zone or the ash field. Something I should research I suppose. I guess another issue would be that my new home is close to the New Madrid Fault. Not sure if it is possible but an explosion of the magnitude could set off that fault as well, again I don't know for sure. All I do know for sure is I will do what ever is needed to keep my family as safe as I can. The rest is left up to fate I guess.

    If it turns out to be just eight generations I'll admit I was wrong. Happy?
