Reading all the posts, I can't help but laugh.
Not from the good posts, but from the fact that I feel there will be far fewer people to start off with, People like us say they will 'head to the
hills' but fail to think that they will not be the only ones.
First off, should society collpase for whatever reason, social unrest, bio attack, climate change, alien invasion even maybe zombie infestation, the
majority of 'unenlightened' people will stay at home using their resources there whilst waiting for help to arrive from their respective
Governments, after all thats what they've paid their taxes for , right?.
'They will come and help us' will be their calling cries, following that will be ' Where are they? they should be here by now', followed
penultimately by 'Wheres all the food gone?'. and at the very last will be ' Cough , I'm dying, why didn't they come?'.
The majority of the people will wait at home for help that will not come should the event be catasrophic enough, don't forget the Governments will be
people with their own famlies to look after, failing that as My office did during the 7/7 bombings here in London , it will be look after us first and
not your family ( I'll NEVER EVER , EVER forgive them for that, even though I offered to take my wife home first, ( she was in a more hot area in
Victoria ) then I'd have come back).
People may eventually have to move out of their homes to forage for food, but here in the UK there isn't much to go to, as soon as you head out to
the 'woods' you come across another village or town.( Can't help but think of the scene in 'Sean of the Dead, where the hero's group are trailing
their way to a safe spot only to pass another group heading the other way, saying 'hello' as they passed each other).
People may form gangs to survive, there may even be the odd military figure , loaded out with guns and ammo, but it's best to stock up now at home,
get your home partly fortified ( maybe with drop down grills over the windows, ( reinforced toughened glass on the windowx and metal bars behind the
doors) kitted out with backup generators, food stocks, water supplies, maybe even solar panels for radios and such like, fence off your garden if you
have one, really bunker down, and wait for the first couple of years ( should Sit-X be bad enough) to pass by and the uninformed masses to simply die
off ( depopluation ), stock up on medical supplies as they will be very hard to come by.
The ones that survive may take the initiative in looting others houses but if they can't get into yours they'll move off , it would be pointless to
assault a house you can't get into if you haven't the tools, and not worth the energy to try if it looks 'meaty' and hard to break into.
Wait for the 'chaff' to thin out before heading out, Yes there will be less 'animal life' as it would have been stripped bare by the fleeing
crowds, but invest in 'edible' vegetation books and survival books, most people will only look to the ground animals but birds can evade the
hungriest of people simply by flying away. Most plants are edible if properly cooked and you know what to look for.
Learning skills now will be the best piece of kit you can ever invest in , but always make a few plans to cover almost any eventuality.
Like I told the wife today " Plan for the worst, so when that doesn't happen , it'll be a slightly nicer shock for what DOES happen"
