    looking at an ongoing SHTF event. this is new video from a guy that travels the glove filming who got a contact inside Venezuela to go film in most safest way possible for him.yall know i am of the mind set that not all places experience the same situations during a crisis. heres a country where we see clearly this is so. if you dont agree then so be it we all have our opinions and i base mine on history..not all collapses effected the entire globe nor certain individuals situations...be sure and pat close attention to the talk at gasoline stations and the mind set of the people,the govt and all. its a tool being used in this situation to keep the 'peace' as best as possible.these vids are long but worth a look....so far only 2 but theres promise of more..one weekly. hes suppose to show a coastal fishing village..i will find that interesting since i use to live on coastal islands.

    this is not politics thread..its about survival......

    the better part of Caracas...

    Good morning Elkhound,

    Ref: "...not all collapses effected the entire globe...";

    You're correct re the history. Here is the problem: The globe has "shrunken" because of the efficient transportation systems eg civil aircraft of the scheduled airlines, the economy air charters, the cruise ships, vehicle travel, etc.

    If electricity fails in a slum of Venezuela or the USA, and epidemics get started, those who successfully evacuate the area can infect well-established and "hardened" locales. We saw a little of this at the end of WWII when DP - Displaced Person - camps were established for processing these refugees. Now, with the swine flu and bird flu viruses in the global arena, the public sector is overwhelmed in protecting the safe areas. I'm mentioning above from the natural perspective. I have a hunch these matters could be weaponized.

    Gasoline stations will be closed to the general public with access only by LEOs and Responders of the various categories.

    yes in video the fuel is all in around Caracas....outside of there its hard to get. vid shows a family traveling and they have fuel on top of vehicle so they can make entire trip if fuels not available. imagine having to save fuel...if it was rationed...for months..to have enough to make a trip say to a hospital for a surgery or some type emergency you had to travel for.

    of course fuel on top could make you a target too...my truck holds 40 gallons of fuel in dual tanks. thats farther than i travel to and fro now distance wise.

    notice the motorbikes they all drive? small cc engine size...fuel economy wins this game...none of this giant hot rod large cc bikes...i have a friend who is a guide out west.he uses small ATV's..he has friends who have the giant atv double engine size of his 250 and 300cc engines.he recounted a story about them refueling as much as 3 times in a day on long hunts. their snow machines same way.

    stewardship of resources is survival daily at all times.

    I must admit this was not at all what I was expecting. How could there be so much supply in Caracas when the rest of the country is starving? There were no empty shelves. What keeps the people apart? There was no civil unrest. Why weren't the starving people raiding the stores in Caracas that had plenty?

    For a city of almost 2 million people there weren't many people or cars on the street. For the family that was traveling with the gas on top of the car I was wondering how they were going to get home. If it took all of that gas to get there...?? Maybe they weren't planning on getting home.

    The economics were very disturbing. Work for a month to get enough money to buy a hamburger? If there is work?

    I will at least take this on face value, anyway to be an honest report. He was trying to show several aspects of life in Venezuela. I didn't see any political bias. Just showing the way life is.

    And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

    6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.



    A measure of wheat was about a quart, and the penny about sixteen cents, which would make the wheat worth about $5 per bushel; or, if it be borne in mind that one dollar in that age would usually purchase as $5 now, the wheat would be about $25 per bushel in the modern currency. "Bread by weight" always implies scarcity. See Le 26:26 Eze 4:16,17. The prices named also signify the same. Hurt not the oil and the wine. Oil and wine, though common foods, are entirely prohibited. An age of war, mourning, calamity and famine is certainly symbolized.

    Thanks for the videos. Points to notice, They traveled in groups. Lenny had his head on a swivel all the time. The rich are always the last to be effected. There are always commodities but only for those that can pay for them especially in a socialist country.

    In case anyone missed it:

    40,000 Bolivars is minimum wage (per month)
    30,000 for a hamburger
    10,000 for a hot dog
    21,000 for two rolls of toilet paper
    3,000 for a 220ml / 7.5 oz bottle of beer

    And the 6,000 Bolivars to 1 US dollar exchange rate just last month is about 6,500 to 1 now. Not quite there yet, but getting close to "wheelbarrel full of money to buy a loaf of bread" territory. Underscores the need to have some savings in the currency from another country, and/or gold and silver imo.

    Looking forward to videos from more rural areas too, guessing Caracas is the best (or least affected) area of the country. Some details on the black market for goods and services would be interesting too.

    Thanks for sharing. I was always curious about the situation there and I've also been looking for charities. I will be donating to that GoFundMe page that was mentioned in video 2.
