James Wesley Rawles, an internationally recognized best selling survival author is back for a 5 part interview with DR Escapes.  We touched on many of the hottest topics in survival planning in this latest series of interviews and you will not want to miss a single episode.  James offers candid and practical guidance that you and your family need to incorporate in your own survival planning.

In today’s post we will release parts one and two of this important 5 part interview series.  In addition to hearing James’ perspective on a collapsing US dollar we will hear a little about alternative investment safe havens he is encouraging and will discuss how fundamental factors such as food sources and water supplies may be the ultimate weapons against a devastating collapse.

In our next post, we will share part three where James opens up on some of the most serious threats facing us today, including the reemergence of Russia, Ebola threats and the vulnerability to Power Grid failures and sabotage.

In this first video, James gives us an update on what he has been doing lately and then digs right into the prospects for a dollar collapse and where to park some of your assets so that you can weather the storm a little more safely.


In this second part of our interview series James and Barry discuss why sustainable agriculture and a gravity fed water supply may be the most important assets to have in times of a serious collapse or power grid failure.


We are just getting warmed up in our interviews with James Wesley Rawles.  In the next installment we will discuss three of the biggest threats we face today and what actions you may want to take to be prepared.  In the next post we will cover the reemergence of Russia as a threat to peace, the Ebola scenario that could truly turn this threat into a worldwide pandemic and threats to the power grid that could be devastating.

For now, it is Barry in the DR.  Don’t dare miss the next two posts for the rest of the story from James Wesley Rawles.  Day three will be just as important as James discusses the connection between ISIS and the CIA and why the next major war will most likely be played out to a significant extent on hometurf in the United States.

Hey Barry,
just listened to this. What great info!!! Lots of insightful stuff that people have never thought about at the level your sharing. While I have realized and thought through most if it before, i.e. gravity fed water Vs electric pumps I know if infrastructure here even falters there may well be a chain reaction probably causing total collapse that parallels movies we’ve seen and people just don’t get it. They think our government won’t let it happen and that we survived the great depression so we can do it again. That was a different time with different people with different values and now there is 4 times the population, no unity, every man for himself mentality, with far less natural resources to be had. There is two weeks supply of basic food in stores and warehouses based on what I have read so that would be exhausted quickly and I would envision every form of wild life will be eaten and gone in a short time as well by the survivalist and not to mention water resources drying up. What follows is genocide caused by survival of the fittest and those with the entitlement attitude will consume everything and kill at the drop of a hat to get what they want.

I greatly appreciate all you have done and am all the more secure in the decisions we have made in acquiring property in the DR not to mention the natural resources available regardless what happens to the U.S. After listening to this, we’re more glad than ever that we are deep into our plan B and working on our residency there.

All that to say what a great interview and affirmation of what we know and the choices we’ve made. Can’t wait to be there. So glad we found you!

Thanks Paul. People have to make their own decisions. Like I always say there’s no place that’s right for everyone. A lot of it has to do with the individual them self. For some it works and for others it doesn’t but anyone who wants to have rink side seats at this shootout has to have their head examined. Crime is everywhere and 90% of it directly relates to one’s own stupidity. Facts are facts. For the lock and load mindset we’ll see how their plan holds together when the first one in the family starts to bleed out but I maintain no right and wrong only choices and looks like you’ve made yours. Here’s a bit of informational facts for the say home and fight mindset. The estimated total number of guns (both licit and illicit) held by civilians in the United States is 270,000,0001 to 310,000,000 http://www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/united-states. In other words almost 100% according to population. Some own more than one while others don’t own any. Now here’s why I’m no fan of statistics and the philosophy of the hunker down mindset. Statistics hardly ever ask the correct question. The correct question would be what percentage of the citizens are prepared for what’s to come? Do the numbers and you’ll soon find out stretching it you might push to 2%. As of November 11, 2014, the United States has a total resident population of 319,066,000. lets look at this a bit further. So you have approx. 310 million guns in the US. Two percent of the population which are properly prepped to hold out this bump in the night. So that means roughly 6,200,000 armed prepped people against 303,800,000 people who are armed with similar weapons BUT who are UNPREPARED!!! Shit even Napoleon at Waterloo had better odds by a mile and if history would allow you to go back and ask him… If you could have reconsidered would you have still gone on the attack at Waterloo? We all know his answer would have been HELL NO!!! So much for how I feel about the lock and load mentality and about better ways to ride out this soon to arrive storm. It for me is still all about food water and an environment where it never freezes but like anyone I could be wrong to but years of on the ground experience tells me otherwise. People don’t learn from words they learn from experience.
