I read a ton of prepper fiction. In some ways, surviving the initial blast may be a worse fate than just vaporized. The post apocalyptic world will not kind.

Cities turn ugly when their sports teams win a trophy.

I'd hate to be near one if something horrible happened.

I like your thread and I have added 'movie theater' to my list of possible bugout places. I think it would do nicely in the event of a *regular* nuclear bomb. If it's a *dirty bomb* though, I'm not sure what I could do. I'd almost rather not survive the blast than deal with the aftermath.

Embrace the madness with my loved ones.

Someone very dear and close to me is on meds that probably won't be available after a nuke.

So I'd sign off.

Is it Joy Behar? And is the med 'miconazole?'

It's me and the med is SlimFast.

I'm already in the middle of nowhere, so I guess I'd just sit and wait to see what happens. Terre Haute Indiana to the East or Effingham Il to the West are the nearest "big" cities and I'm about 40 miles from each.

Like I said...middle of nowhere.

an hour affords me no time to get out of where I am.

I want to be one of the lucky ones to go at first impact. Living after a nuclear attack would be hell on earth. Even if you escaped being killed during the initial attack, the radiation fall out would contaminate the food supply, water and who knows what devastating affect it would have on the human body?

In my view, it's a no win situation. It makes me angry that a few power hungry leaders can decide to wipe out millions of innocent lives with just a push of a button!

Get comfy, have a drink, a snack, and some music playing.

I can't drive, and getting *anywhere* would take an hour at least- so....

Hang out in my basement. I have everything I need to survive. I am in somewhat of a safe zone.

I am pretty sure that my trying to get home from work in any emergency would be a shooting gallery. I'd still try though, because as bad as that drive would be...eventually the city is going to be much worse. Traveling against the wind while avoiding major highways would be my game plan. I have a designated meetup place for my significant other near our's an old abandoned abbey that is well boarded up and rarely has any signs of vandalism. He works for a large hospital for the emergency preparedness dept.-we may even get a heads up that something was coming before it was news. If I was at home (or when I got home) I'd start running the water in my tub (it's a huge one) then start taping off my air intake vents...I can work on the doors and windows later, but those intakes need to be sealed. Then I'd start packing up my foods and preparing a safe zone in the basement. I'd make a scrub down station in my garage and tape it all off as well. Secondary scrub down would be inside the front hallway bathroom, that hall would be completely tarped and taped off from the rest of the house...I guess I'd make a tunnel with lots of openings. It's a favorite past time for my boyfriend and I to discuss shtf and what the plan would be.

When you have a family, you think about these things. Having a kid changes life.

Yes, we've even thought about a Yellowstone scenario although that one is like gaming zombies. But thinking about the New Madrid letting go and other natural disasters is fair game. You do what you can to prepare just in case. Just like your house burning down, you ought to have a plan.

I'm in northern Canada. Not much to hit up here with a nuke, asides from population.
And even then, only 100k people in my sesspool town.
But if for some reason Thunder Bay Ontario was a target, and I was at work - which is an hour and a half drive north.
I'd go underground into the mine.
There's 20 refuge stations, each with enough food and water for 25 people for a month.
If I was at home with the family.
We live about 20 minutes outside of town.
I would get everyone downstairs to the basement and hope for the best.
We have generator back up, a wood stove, clean well water, and large game that travel through our property.

Unless a teenage boy trying to impress his girlfriend breaks in to a top secret laboratory and steals the special kind of sauce and builds one to win a New York science fair.

Then it's gets real man.


This type of thinking is simply mystifying. Is this actually persuasive to you?

We have laws against the materials and possessing one bc the alternative is leaving it totally up to everyone and having FAR more around.

The law keeps it from being a big problem regardless of possible isolated exceptions, which is the whole point.
