    Julian calendar - a calendar introduced in Rome in 46 B.C. establishing the 12-month year of 365 days with each fourth year having 366 days and the months each having 31 or 30 days except for February, which has 28, or in leap years 29 days.
    Julian date:
    1. The sequential day count reckoned consecutively beginning January 1, 4713 B.C. Note: The Julian date on January 1, 1990, was 2,446,892.
    2. The sequential day count of the days of a year, reckoned consecutively from the first day of January.
    The Julian date is the number of days that have passed since noon on January 1st, 4713 B.C. Julian days begin and end at noon, instead of midnight. By subtracting the Julian dates for two actual dates, you can get the number of days between those dates.
    Notes:
    1. Note: Noon is actually 12:00 PM. Midnight is 12:00 AM on the day that is just starting. For example, the midnight between January 1st and January 2nd is actually 12:00 AM January 2nd.
    2. In modern times, the definition of Julian date has been corrupted to use the first day of the year as the point of reference. To avoid ambiguity with the traditional meaning, "day of year" rather than "Julian date" should be used for this purpose.

    Default Some Advice Here PLEASE

    First of all, THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to this thread. I've read through this entire thread and have done a lot of copy/paste for future reference.

    I think the thing that shocked me and p^*@ed me off the most was the discovery that FEMA can come in and STEAL what is not theirs and give it to those who are not even bothering to plan ahead. These are probably the same people who would rather steal from someone else rather than even try to plan for the future.

    What I didn't see in the many comments was a reference to, or advice for, those who do not have a predetermined "bug out place". There are no doubt people who are planning on "hunkering down" in the inner city due to any variety of circumstances (physical condition, age, finances, etc). It's these people who are at least trying, however limited their circumstances may be, to plan for when SHTF the best they can.

    It's these same people who could use some advice on finding like-minded people to possibly "bug out with" (how to pick out good trustworthy people, etc, or how to best protect oneself when hunkered down in the city.

    Any thoughts??

    The first thing I would suggest to someone unable to "bug out" is get to know what your blinds, mini-blinds, and curtains are for and use them religiously. No use drawing attention to yourself unnecessarily.

    Second, NEVER share with anyone your SHTF plans/supplies. People have looooong memories when you might have something that they may need/want.
