    I am THRILLED I saw the posting of your website on PInterest a few minutes ago. I am very diligent on being prepared but your inspiration is taking me to a much higher level! THANK YOU!

    Given that the “defense in depth” strategy is in effect, where to go that isn’t a replay of where we are now, unless treading seawater doesn’t sound like a fun way to leave Earth. I rather think that evacuation now is going to be much like that scene in Lord of the Rings, when the Elves left Middle-Earth; they went “beyond the Sea.”

      I must concur with your statement 100%, even though it makes me sad at the thought of it. There will be much suffering and things are not going to get better … (yet). The frequency and intensity of disasters, natural and otherwise will continue to increase. It seems hopeless on the surface but we can control how we deal with the coming calamities. That’s why I write, to shine a light on that fact.
      I read your comment and studied it for a while, it’s very insightful and thoughtful and I’m grateful that you shared it. I’ve seen the LOTR series but admit that I had to ask my son about the Elves leaving Middle-Earth. (they all blend together for me). I asked him about that scene in the film and how it related to my site’s content. He mentioned the finality and also the discretion of it. In my mind it fits perfectly… Beyond the Sea will be a wonderful (and safe) place to be.
