The responses to this topic raise the question of the average age of the members here.
From a more mature perspective I would:
Ask the question of "why me". Why was I spared or forgotten when compared to everyone else.
Locate necessary equipment to perform an assessment of my environment. Radiation monitoring equipment, bacteriological equipment. Are there dead
bodies present or has everyone just disappeared. Am I a sole survivor or am I just dying slower?
Assure that I had a safe & well stocked dwelling in which to preserve the most important life on earth, (my own).
Acquire a versatile firearm and ammunition to protect myself from hungry animals. This would quickly become a problem when owners were no longer there
to care for them.
Locate & setup a source of electrical power and a HAM radio set in order to see if the entire world was affected or just my town,state,country etc.
Once I had a reasonable certainty that there was no one else on the planet, I would travel to an area where resources were abundant and establish my
home and create a self sufficient system with electricity, water, food, fuel, transportation , security and communication equipment . I would also
want it to be on a hilltop to allow unrestricted views of the Heavens. From there I would locate a large library and transport a large portion of it
to my dwelling where I would begin research and reconstruction of a working life sustaining environment where I would be responsible for my own
healthcare and provisioning. I would also assemble a group of livestock and a couple of large guard dogs for protection and companionship.
What I would view as an end result would be a comfortable life with the best in wines, books & music. I would devote my leisure hours to religious
research and recording in long lasting written format the story of man and my own journal of solitary existence. I would strive to become one with my
God, My Planet and My Universe......
