It’d be cool! We’d have a place we could all vacation at, maybe with a nice beach, near some potable freshwater so it’s a useful retreat for when the apocalypse comes.

We’ve all got to contribute though, so LEARN A SKILL. See, I can sew, cook, fish, care for some forms of livestock and forage and I know how to butcher and prepare game and hides, and I’m willing to learn how to hunt. But I can’t garden for shit (I’ve tried :( ) or fix things so somebody better step up.

No weirdos.

I can also cook and do gardening - I'm not super green fingered, but like having a go (helps to start with stuff that'll pretty much grow no matter what like potatoes). Quite willing to have a go at fixing/ building things (I love flatpacks, so chopping/ sawing wood and building stuff would be cool).

I can garden, build, etc, and deal with basic plumbing/electrics, but it's not exactly a vocation.

The problem with more parts of the planet becoming uninhabitable, dangerous wet bulb temperatures, etc, is going to be the mass exoduses.

Fun fact, there are limits to this. I thought I had a deep enough container- nope!

That's why I said no weirdos. Foolproof!


You're both on my apocalypse team. Er, vacation home timeshare list thing. Yes.

Don't worry about the mass exoduses, we'll probably be dead by then.

Not sure a lake house will guarantee our survival unless there’s an underground complex of James Bond villain type beneath it, but I’m in.

I can garden, upcycle stuffs and organise (although not in the Marie Condo style; that’s too OCD). And you can all benefit from my old person wisdom hem-hem.

I would very much like the underground James Bond villain complex. I'm in.
