Karl,
Some of these posts have not always been easy to read, but I do want to personally thank you. I have know economically we were going bad places for years and that I should prepare, but anything that seemed like a good idea involved things that I couldn't or wouldn't do. Going through these Tickers though, I have realized that there is a ton I can do and most of it doesn't involve a fortune, but "adulting." Committing to a low carb/high fat diet (even while I still have to do better with it), has been something I frankly didn't think I could do. Doing so though has made me realize how much I can change things and how much I need to make myself learn.

The one thing I would add that I think is highly important for people to work on now is to focus on your spirit/religious life. Things are going to get bad and even if some people here are able to plan for everything (unlikely), there will be a large mental toll. I can say from personal experience making your religious life a bit more sophisticated helps with those struggles a lot.

While on this kind of topic, I had a few questions for other readers here:
1. For those on keto, how much protein do you consider too much for a day? Now that I am through the first part of trying to cut out carbs, I am trying to focus on the rest of the diet. Counting things over the last week, I had north of 100g of protein most days with total calories around 1500. I am going to cook so it is a bit different next week, but trying to gauge what is too much.

2. Outside of the colleges, has anyone taken classes for basic automotive, electronic, or general home repairs? If so, where did you find them? I feel very deficient in these areas and want to start improving skills. I do know a lot is available online and do use that some.
