You have to remember , That when its time to "bug out" things are

going to be different . The rules are going to be all out the window.

If you seriously are going to run, then you need to get out of the cities and find

a place to Squat. No matter where you live , people have summer

cottages or homes. When the SHTF most sheeple will band together

with there families , not run. Look for areas that have the second

homes / cottages , thats where you need to be, after you have shelter ,

the rest is easy. No shelter = No live. After you are in a place with a

roof , the stuff you brought to live and hunt with will substain you.

I agree, but the thing about hunting, in this day and age most of the wildlife has been wiped out, with many significant species numbering in only the high hundreds or thousands, the loss is especially significant in Western Europe and Eastern America.

The bad thing is that when the SHTF they will be wiped out, hunted to extinction.

People will be next on the menu


People should find alternative food, especially insects, and grow their own fruits and vegetables, and the time to get started is now.

If you stick to the smaller game, snare rabbits and fish

that should be enough till some sort of structure comes into place

If you think your going to pitch a tent and live off the fat of

the land , your deluding yourself. The elements would kill all

but the hardy in no time. You gotta have a roof, and weather control.

That's a tad pessimistic and actually breaks one of my own personal rules of staying calm and positive.

Let's not forget that us humans are a hardy bunch, and maybe you're right in saying the cold may kill many people, remember that not everywhere is snowy and some climates have cool winters and warm summers.

Common sense should prevail.

Well said.
To those who fear the winter and weather exposure...

I was just a wide-eyed skinny soldier back in the 90s in an English winter with naught but a poncho/basha for protection, our sleeping systems and roll mats. Well, using this and sleeping in my clothes (which you'll do in SITX if outdoors) me and my platoon lasted 2 weeks (the manouvers / exercise duration) no problems.
We were up all hours. 0200 hrs to 0800hrs and all the other times. Lack of sleep, sometimes only a couple of hours a day.
No cold casualties or exposure victims. In fact the only injuries I had were a bruised knee (my own fault) and a few blisters. Not the end of the world. People with bigger bodies would find coping with the cold even easier

A good 'roof' shelter can constitute many things...

It must be those gun-toting Yank's influence growing on me. When I first saw the thread title I thought of sniper's nests.


Shelter is important, but the definition is ambiguous enough to permit many things; all of which can provide shelter.

As Watchrider says, even the average human can endure with minimal protection. Most are people are just too soft from cranking up/down the thermostat.
