everyone knows in situation x the best thing would be to take to the hills with supplys to avoid the problems with lots of panicking people.
but if you where trapped behind what would be the best building to hold up in?
(i know there are previous posts similar to this this is more about what i think is the best)
here are some of the more well know.
1. mall (lots of food clothes etc ( very big hard to defend)
2.your house (not much supply's easer to defend)
4. tall office buliding etc
5.supermarkets 9lots of food)
my idear is garden centers!!!
over here in england most garden centers are on small buissnes parks with no supper markets ... just electrical goods etc.... this would mean at
first looters would be about taking all the electrical good things of valuse not at a garden center / bnq DIY type shop with a garden center.
the reason for my choice is as follows.
1. (immidiate food, water ,shelter. heat, weaponry.)
as soon as you step inside one of these you have food and water from the stafff areas vending machines and the like. a roof over your head lots of
heating devices (if in garden center garden candels oil burners etc patio heaters ) ( if in a hardware diy store with garden center you allso have all
kinds of gas heaters and gas bottles and bbq sets.
there will be limited water on tap some cans and possibly drinking fountains refills if the company uses them.
in garden centers or diy shops weapons would be abundant.... nailguns shearers, chainsaw, spade, axe, blowtorch the list is endless.
2. ( long term survival with out having to scavange / move)
THIS IS THE BEAST PART.
if you choice a BnQ diy store with massive out door garden center ) these are walled up high then have fencing with barbs to about the roof of the
shop ... no one is getting over, sum are even caged on top)
so you have a large out door spot all the growing materials you need for sustainable food. seeds, mulch , compost , gravel ,... turn the whole out
side to a vegi patch ..... use the hardware stuff to build a plumming to collect water off the roof as all these types of stores will have countless
inside build up a few sheds or the like and insulate the # out of them with the hard ware section again..... cosy living in the winter incase you
ever run out of ... 2stroke oil for movers ... gas bottles.... 2x4 to burn
once again with all the tools and building supply at your fingertips you can fortify your entrance point to the store..... this shoud be undertaken
you wil even have limited first aid supplys as all lage stores have to have first aid kits.......
you could create electrisity by jerry rigging loads of those crappy solar powered garden lights together ..... possibility's are endless.... when you
have nearly every tool man made to hand and the ability to grow food and collect water.
so just think about it when situation x kicks in where would you go if stuck in the city... maby this is better tahn running to the hills??
as i said before looters wouldn't relay be a problem much better places to rob. and in the initial confusion people would go to food stores and not
supply's for making food.... by the time they run out and come looking for seeds compost fertilizers etc it wil be to late. your nicely hauled up
inside eating a lovely heart vegetable soup. cooked over your travel bbq kit. ... and maby after a nap you will while you relex back on your nice sun
lounger have a play on your trampoline. maby take up a new hobby like garden bowls ... hehe
please post comments and improvements. i realy think this could be an overlooked possibility
