Okay so here is the deal.  The group began on life support which is something 
that I expected.  What I also expected was for this group to gather like minded 
individuals who were ready and willing to do what is needed without a baby 
sitter or a leader to tell them what to do and to grow away from life support.  
Self-sufficiency as individuals as well as a group was and is the goal.  I 
knowIn everyone has their things, life in general, jobs, obligations etc...  I 
also have these responsibilities and more and have sacrificed those 
responsibilities, probably more than I should have because this really means a 
lot to me.  
I can assure you that I already have a network of folks locally that leaves me 
no need to worry about what I will need to do in a SHTF situation.  My goal 
with this group was to make sure that others would have less to worry about as 
well.  But when others are not putting in the effort then there is only so much 
that I can do.  In all honesty, this group has proven to be just as dependent 
and helpless as it was before it even started.  So this is how it is going to 
play out now.  I'm taking the group off of life support (Me) and whether it 
lives or dies is up to you (the group).  If it dies I will not come in and 
bring it back to life.  I will remain silent unless I see that folks actually 
care enough to take initiative and try to get meetings and events arranged and 
organized as a group.  I am now just a watcher and I will either watch this die 
or watch it grow!
