I agree with arming yourself. Heavily. More than wondering where you'll find your next meal, you should be seriously
whether or not
you can kill
another human being who is intent on killing you
for your supplies.
Look, all you need to survive is a reliable source of water, a reliable source of food, and the weaponry to protect and defend your resources. Rain
and well water will keep you hydrated — just boil it first. As long as you are armed and there are looters (and there will
of looters), then you'll have a source of fresh meat.
I don't have to think twice about this — pulling the trigger on a marauding thief is as natural as putting down a rabid dog. The only thing I
seriously wonder about is if I can eat human flesh... But, I mean, once you waste a looter, it would be a real
crime to allow the hundred
pounds or so of fresh meat to rot in the street.
However, without refrigeration, the only way to preserve the meat for any extended period of time will be to dry and/or smoke it. So you'll need a
reliable source of firewood, also, but that shouldn't be a problem.
