Creating an escape plan for SITX
I am writing this after a fellow ATS'er urged me to after I shared the following with them in a U2U. So, without further preamble here it is.
Escape planning for SITX.
First off you need to know who will form the base of your group, and then gather together for an evening to go over the following.
Get a map of your SITX escape area, and maps to cover the route to your final destination, and work out a route. Along this route mark out 6 to 10
'emergency points'. Then as a group drive / walk / traverse this area and pick out land marks familiar to every one. Choose road signs, street
lamps, walls, or even railings, but all agree on the emergency points selected.
Now, getting back together, give each member of your group a colour or a number (could even be both as colour / number is a good way to indicate
hostile threat as you use right colour / wrong number combo to warn fellow group members of danger, such as a person being forced to follow the route
against their will).
So, with colour and / or number selected, buy sticky patches, maybe 20 per person to keep in their BOB / emergency stash.
Now, when SITX goes down we will not all be in the same area, yet we will all know the route and the chosen locations to mark with our stickers to
indicate whether we are alive and following the route or able to travel the route.
You see a sticker on a marker, you know how many folks are making there way to the SITX area. If you can, travel the route and mark off each one to
indicate life, but if that is not possible, mark off at least two, so the group knows to wait for you at SITX area for a predetermined length of time
before heading off into the wilderness further.
If you wanted to, you could adapt this to spray paint 'tags', IR markers, or any means of 'tagging' a location to indicate life.
Food for thought any how.
