Lets just put it this way.
No one will know what they are capable of until something happens.
We could measure ourselves against one another until we break our tapes, but the relative point is that if the S does HTF, there is no way everyone is going to get out of it.
There is also something to be said for waiting a bit, before moving.

Even the best laid plans of mice and men can be ruined by variables.

I intentionally left out which sit-x (use your imagination)

You want me to name it, ALL OF THE ABOVE YOU MENTIONED, Total breakdown of society.

You again't the world, Are you going to fight your way to your gear, or get while the going is good and forget your gear

There always has to be one that wants exact details.Common sense should have told you to pick one more severe than just a mob fight on the street.

I think your question is very valid.
These are the instructions that have been given:



In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

Luke 17:31

Forced survival is probably the type of survival most people will encounter if SHTF. And the only thing that will save you is located between your ears.

And if you don't know how to use that tool then that tool will probably not save you. That's a hard fact of reality.

Building a safe house wont save you if you are far away from it. And your tool box wont save you if you dont have it with you.

I will say this,I can probably survive. Not the best way, I will be the peson barely making it. I won't be able to carve a lock out of wood for my door. But I know enough not to build my lean to in a stream bed.

I will if I have too, but I will be cursing and begging for my air mattress the whole time.

Australian aborigines can.

so if you're in australia, best bet is to try to befriend some of them who still know their traditional subsistence lifestyle. they helped white people survive in this country when the first colonies were set up (silly them)...

maybe the same goes for other countries with indigenous people who are used to living off the land and making what they need from nothing.

they will survive when the rest of us starve...

alternatively, befriend a farmer. they're already growing what they need probably; and own a few guns...

You can bug out with nothing but I wouldn't recommend it. Might want to take at least some survival stuffs with you.

My bug out kit consists of my Gilly suit, rifle, sidearm, and camo backpack o' goodies (which contains all of my actual survival gear which also contains my 2 piece 40lb recurve bow and screw apart arrows.).

They can't catch what they can't see

Too low to the ground to be rose hips. Also rose hips do not grow in clusters like that.

I think it looks like wintergreen berries.

No I'm sorry Alethea there not wintergreen berries(Gaultheria procumbens).
That bush doesn't have waxy green leaves.
The leaves on that bush are serrated.

I know it's hard to tell from pictures.I also know those books on edible plants and mushrooms I bought might kill me one day. That's why I try and get to know each plant in person before I eat it. If someone else tells me it's edible they get to eat it first. My Dad use to take me foraging all the time. He wasn't A botanist,he grew up on a farm.

That sure does look like rose hips to me. But OK, for the sake of the argument I will admit I am probably wrong.

The berries come in various shapes and red tints, but the leaves and ... never mind.

OK then, what are they?




Maybe it's A shrubbery ?

Here's my position. I'm a nice guy. I don't steal. I don't take advantage. I'm not selfish.

In Sit-X, I'm a dead man unless I nut up and start getting not-nice.

What you'll probably find is that people will tribe up and live off each other's willingness to help their tribe survive.



I agree becoming "not-nice" would be an option to consider. But how far do you take it? I personally don't want to have to prey on my fellow man for my survival. There has to be a better way.

I think it may be wise to tribe-up, that may be best for long term survival.
