Great topic. This is something that I have actually been working on myself. A slightly different point of view is to look at what YOU have to offer THEM. I’m in the process of relocating several states away from where I have spent the majority of my life. This will be a very challenging obstacle, as I will have very little/no background of people in my new area, so I will be starting totally blind. My plan is to get to know neighbors a little first (also a challenge being an introvert, lol). I want to make sure that I present myself well, someone that is willing/able to contribute first. Think of it as “What can I offer to you?” before “What can you offer to me?” If SHTF, your neighbors will be logical allies and among the most efficient in many ways.
