I wouldn't be too concerned about the Y2K issue. The government
will take care of us for the duration, and all it'll cost is
some of our liberty. Don't bother preparing to much. As the
collectivists are fond of asserting, we're an interdependent
society now, and any outward show of independence might get you
into trouble.

Carry several hundred dollars in cash and don't depend on your
maildrops. You'll be fine.
