Seriously anon. Complain about dead board but post to it. Cmon.
Regarding prepping, also don't forget to communicate to your community no matter how small, your plans and intentions. Things that your wife and kids should know. This should not be a surprise the day of and they shouldn't be new to the idea of bugging out or whatever your plan is. It will quickly clear up questions and establish unequivocally that you are the plan maker, and the one to look to for guidance. In a crisis, the chain of command must not be broken, and decisions must be made.
Having said that, use your head. OpSec matters so none of this spouting off plans to people you do not trust.
