okay guys, in order for everything to break down to the extent where survival supplies are required then, i would assume, at least 85% of the
population dead. if you are in a population centre the chance of you being dead already is 90-95%, and if you are one of the 5% left, supplies are not
likely to be an issue. there would be enough survival supplies for everyone to be covered 10 times over in your average population centre.
if you are in the country, you probably already have all the survival supplies you'll ever need lying around for hobby use. also, country people are
more likely to know anyone and everyone within walking distance, they would be partners, not rivals, in a survival situation. besides, the breakdown
of civilisation wouldn't really effect rural areas so much, loss of power is the biggest issue.
EDIT: in saying that, i still know the skills required, because it's fun, and i feel a knife, a fishing line and hooks, three e-strings, 3 butaine
lighters, combat pants, a warm coat and some strong boots has me covered.
