About this column

This is what I've come up with using my experience and research on the topic of MAG s. Please read the article and then watch the documentay. It's very realistic so don't watch it with young children. Looks like a PG 13 to me but extremely realistic. 

I wish you the work ethic, skills and dedication needed to be in a great MAG.  Remember nobody can be awake 24/7 and take care of the homestead needed to survive a TEOTWAWKI event.

Screening process
This is getting to know the person (discord, bbm group)for 1 to 4 years and get togethers about a dozen times at least so that everyone trusts everyone. Setting up caches in each others Holmes. Do they offer you supplies they have to much of. Do they offer to get you supplies because they are in a place that things are on sale. Do they offer to come give you a hand or pay for someone to help you in a emergency or to enhance the BOL. Me and my prepper friend regularly do this for each other.
Time or money is important in every part of life and especially in a MAG
A important facet to me is to have a ticket to enter the BOL. To have enough supplies on hand  for you and everyone you bring for 3months to a year or more depending on what the group decides. Also building the place to store your supplies. 
Suburbia 
3 months at home. Double the preps in time, in different caches every 30- 100 kms on the way to BOL (members could share caches and leave anonymous msgs for eachother)
Preps need to be in different places at BOL an secondary BOL and at home in case of theft. 
A cool trick for caches I just thought up is put a big piece of metal then put a cache with ok things a foot under the big metal piece and two feet under the first put the essential things in another cache. This works in case someone with a metal detector finds your cache or someone's threatening you or your loved ones you give them the first cache.
I like 1month caches for secondary BOLs per family or 1 plastic barrel each using the above method. Chances are nobody will be watching the 2 BOL so the more caches you have in different places. The less chances you have of them all being discovered.
Their needs to be rules of conduct and sanctions going from extra duties to expulsion/ trial if theirs no rules of law. This would be a majority vote. One vote per family unit.
Some in know including myself know that some ppl will never be prepared but would be extremly useful TEOTWAWKI. So they prep for them and are content that their skills / work ethic/ blood relations are enough to get them in the group. THIS IS YOUR CHOICE and it's obviously 1000 times better than being one family alone like in   
Obviously it's going to feel like you did all the work and everyone else wasn't serious. You'd be right and what's worse chances are you have to accept 1 to 10 ppl with that doctor because he can't live without them. They'd all need to be screened as you will be sleeping in the same house or protected area. This can be done fairly cheaply using the LDS food calculator numbers and agricultural wholesale grain bins or buying approx 40 40kg bags of a grain at one time at a grain elevator. The space will become the problem quickly but at least you will have a doctor or nurse for ex to heal you in a TEOTWAWKI event such as 2 week state or province blackout.
