Facta Non Verba!
(Deeds, Not Words!)
Many people practice "Verba Non Facta", they talk about some grand project for 20 years because it makes them look good to their peers, but they never actually get around to doing anything.
Meanwhile, Countless Children (Like one of our Sponsored Children, Pictured below), Starve... While Children Starve, the "Talkers" are happily building their castles in the air to look good to their friends, but Doing Nothing... "Smoke", "Vapor", "No Substance"... Disgusting people.
Rubies "Do", Period
"Every Year, We Meet In A Remote Field Somewhere, And Build An Entire Community"
(-- A Rubie describing the Rubicon to a Non-Member)
Rubicon members are Family, Our Families are involved in our activities. "Rubies" Camp together, practice disaster skills, have fun, go out to eat together, Clean up after disasters together, Vacation together... we're always DOING something! What Skills will *YOU* need during aCOMS ("a Collapse Of Modern Society"), and Where are you going to get those Skills?
No matter where we go, we know there's ALWAYS a Rubie close by in times of need... Hundreds of ACTIVE members, From the USA, Canada, Europe, etc.. The Moss never Grows under our feet, and The Sun Never Sets On the Rubicon...
Truth: "99.99999% of your time is spent NOT dealing with Disasters". Doesn't it make sense to design your Home/Retreat with "Day-To-Day Living" in mind? If Solar panels can be used to provide Alternate Power during a Disaster, why not save money on your daily power bills by using them now? This eventually frees up much needed money for use in other areas.
Rather than planning to "patrol" for security during a disaster, why not set up a Home Security System to protect your family Before a Disaster strikes? It can also be used in combination with your Alternate Power System during a Disaster, but right now it gives you security and peace of mind!
Design your life Now to allow you daily savings on your bills, to help you be more secure, etc.. and then during a Disaster you can live much as you do now. Don't live like a hermit, Live your life! Have fun! GET OUT THERE!
Here at Alpha/Rubicon we're about "Living", not just "Surviving" in some type of cave dweller's existence... What does YOUR "Family" do for fun?
There's MUCH MUCH more inside...
