I think you have some kind of romantic idea of SitX. It's going to be exciting, you'll have to invade the enemy, set traps, and basically be rambo
running around the wilderness surviving. Maybe I'm getting the wrong impression.
And none of us truly knows what it's going to be like, but I'm almost certain that it's not going to be fun. It's not going to be going behind
enemy lines with a machete and a SAW tearing up the enemy and going back into hiding. I am preparing to be on the run indefinitely.
I have a wife, no children, but a ton of animals. I've said it before, I'll say it again: the animals aren't coming with me if we have to leave
the house. I don't have any family where I am, so that makes it easy for me, just take my wife and go. If I move before sitx, I'll be near my
family or my wife's family, in which case I'll have the same decisions to make that you have.
My preparations are scalable, in that I'm planning to be moving with a group, some of whom will be older and slower. What works for a group, will
work for an individual, only you'll have more options.
It will really come down to the specific situation, on how I approach it. If a nuke is about to drop, I won't have time to grab 4 or 5 people and
get out of dodge. I may have time to warn them and get myself to safety if I'm lucky. If it's an invasion of some enemy military force, there will
likely be a bit of time before ground forces show up, and in the event of civil breakdown, it's best to stay put for some time anyway.
You have to think about your given situation and who you care about first and apply that to the sitx that comes up. But what you really need to do,
is think about what you have and who you have, and prepare in general. You can't prepare for every eventuality, but you can just have survival gear
on hand, and be flexible when the time comes.
