Start a homestead and workshop somewhere in Vermont. Grow delicious food. Raise chickens, goats, and rabbits. Work as a carpenter and create beautiful, useful things. Read books. Grow juniper. Brew ethanol. Add juniper berries, spruce tips, and balsam fir sap to ethanol. Drink said infusion.* Grow cannabis. Smoke cannabis. Visit with friends and family. Go hiking. Build a little nucleus of resilient sustainability for my family, so as to give us the best chance of surviving the horrors which will shortly come to pass. Defend all the above with my life if necessary.

I already do some of those things. If it were up to me (I suppose it kind of is, all I'd need to do is kill some rich "people" and take their money), I'd do all of them.

* "Champion". Gin from Vermont. Coming soon to a purveyor of fine beverages near you.

// I've got a whole slew of commercials lined up for it, most of which involve drunk me chilling on my front porch with a G&T made with the aforementioned spirit and delivering a deliciously irreverent sales pitch. "Champion gin is brewed at a 94-proof strength, unlike those other, inferior spirits. FUCK TANQUERAY AND THEIR LIES!"
