I like the outdoors and hunt, fish, and camp several times a year. Live in the USA so having a gun is still legal...lol
I also know that I can take my truck loaded of things for a weekend getaway.
I have enough for me to be comfortable for awhile in the woods.
My problem is this though,
The amount of food stored can be fit into my vehicle and so can my gear with everything that I need for a long time,(plenty of weapons,food, and
cloths...not getting into the gear lists) what do you do if your on foot? (please don't say to stage or stock up on my preps at the Bug Out
I can only carry so much and alot of things would be left behind if on foot.
Things that I know I would want to have or could really put to good use.
I also am thinking of a senerio that has it so your not comming back to get it because of flood, earthquake, radiation,troops...whatever.....this is
for if you have to leave and not come back.
You then get other things that come up...aka murphy's law,
your secret location was also someone else's or it is not safe to go there,be it from troops, floods, the earth swallowed it ...whatever.
You have all this gear, food and weapon(s).
Do you have an alternate sight?I have several.
How far away?
I do not live in the city, But I am a far stretch from Kansas too...if you know what I mean.
You could walk for days/weeks to get to what I would feel is a safe location.That would be fine, however you would also have the masses of others
traveling to get away too. (Please don't say use a bike....there are so many things wrong with that for me because of where I live, and this is not a
post for them)
I am bringing this up,because I know that some here have prepaired for many different things.
After reading some posts from others about going into the country and taking from the farmers...well that is the farmers land, that is HIS/HER STUFF,
it does not become community properity because your tresspassing.
You honestly would be like a nomad wondering the area.
You could try to get items needed as you go,from nature, in towns or at house's. That could be a little bit dangerous...for only one person.
I am posting this because I am at it alone, I am not a member of a group,nor do I want to be. I understand it takes a small group to provide security
I know that others out there are in the same boat as me so to speak.
What do you do if you can only take what you can carry?
There will be some hard choices that might need to be made about how and what/why you packed what you did, that you'll ask yourself.
I am mearly looking for guidance because I am at a loss for being able to think of everthing.
I know about living off the land and that is fine if it is at a time when things are plentyful....what if it is destroyed by man or from radiation or
gone from floods?
Would you be better off to say screw it and move to you location now and say the hell with everthing else?
With the current state of the world right now what do you do if you the flare goes up? I am just seeking advise from other sources to expand my
ability and chances of survival, in a not so stable world.
Thank you for the time reading this and your comments.
