People do need to start getting together, even if its just to share skills and advice, I'm a Geologist and have wondered around the British Isles on
many occasions, this Island has no marks of complete destruction, some places show signs of past disasters, you only have to look into just how long
this Island has been inhabited, many thousands of years.
There are places to go, places to survive, what people need is to learn how to hunt and survive off what we have here.
Air weapons are useful, I recently had one increased in power so I could hunt effectively.
My wife and I have spoken about this a lot, she is in agreement that there is a need for a plan to leave and find a place were we at least have a
chance, we have even discussed friends and Family and came to the conclusion that we would not have time to try and persuade any of them to come with
us, they live in their own little World.
People need to talk first and meet, and be realistic about what to do if they do decide to head into the boonies, not everyone can afford the means to
just get up leave and be safe with shelter and the need to at least get over the toughest part which would be quite some time while they adjust.
That should not prevent anyone from wanting to be part of it, so forget about not being able to afford it, do it anyway, if people pull together then
it can work, the way I see it everyone has something they could offer, a skill of some kind, cooking, hunting, building, sewing, there are a ton of
things that are useful.
We keep an emergency box, filled with what we need to at least get set up, storing food right now is pointless, the waiting game could mean it becomes
ruined before the need for it arises.
But with the means to kill your food it at least gives anyone a chance.
First though the need is to get people together just to see who we all are, nobody wants or needs to tag along with Megalomaniacs wanting to start a
community they can rule.
Even if its just to set up a network to keep in contact, its an important first step.
I am certainly open to it.
