Dude, sorry but your story reeks. For one thing, wilderness is not hard to find, and the thought of fleeing to the Himalayas to escape mankind is
laughable. I live in Canada and a kid can get lost in 10 minutes out of his backyard and never be found again.
I like your ideas, I have an emergency bug-out plan that involves high altitude abandoned mine adits that are in pretty solid rock that I have
extensively explored. The part of your story that comes across as nonsense is the background. You have a friend whose father was the typical
storybook 'respected elder in the upper echelons of the military'. The father gives a speech on his deathbed so frightening that his son
immediately up and heads for the boonies. Well, there are a couple of problems with this. For one thing, why wouldn't you just prepare in every way
you needed to, and then bug out just before the big event? Survival in the remote wilderness isn't about 'getting used to it', it is about prep
and supplies. The concept of not only you believing your friend's story so much but also other people completely devoting their lives to this... I
don't think so. You hint at knowing more, but what more would there be to know? You have spouted off textbook blue book / mayan nonsense but like
any gradiose end of the world prophecy it lacks any real purpose. Why would they need to cause all of mankind to self destruct by tapping into our
greatest fears with advanced technologies? Obviously any great attack on humanity will be based on the NEED to reduce world population by a
staggering amount, say %80. Wouldn't it be far easier to simply fog cities with any number of toxins or superflus, etc, etc? Faking the Rapture is
all great and theatrical but I'm sure they would rather preserve our resources by quickly exterminating most of us in one blow.
Your life in a mountain cave system is a great idea, one I have fleshed out as a last resort for any number of 'immediate calamities' from asteroid
hit or other weather disaster, world economic collapse, mass disease, alien invasion, etc, etc. Why you have chosen to take this idea and wrap this
story around it is baffling to me, however. If everything you are saying is true, it means you are crazy. To accomplish what you are talking about
would be pulled off in a very different manner altogether.
