i have been thinking lately that if the SHTF, who will be there to come with me, i think i could survive pretty well along, for how long im not sure,
so i thought, who will head to the hills with me?
as an estimate theres probably 25 males and probably the same amount of females (i'm only counting from the children who are 18 and upwards.)
between us we have a various amount of experience, i guess about 5 or under of the males are over 50, 10 between 35-49 and another 10 from 18-35, this
is just a guess though.
most of us can hunt, fish, and basically survive, we all have access to farm land up on the mountain, and not to mention a fair amount of arms
(everything to pistols, to .22's, to sub's).
i think as a "tribe" we would survive well, how about you?
I have had this hypothetical conversation a few times over the course of the years with various friends. This tribe you are talking about sounds all
well and good to start out, but after time goes by you will have more and more occasions where a power struggle can take place..
picture your running low on stores and one person of the community says well lets go see what we can take from the people over on the next
mountian"we see there campfires at night we smell thier meat cooking, my family is hungry"type deal
and then thier is a group of you who agree and another group who disagree, i think you see where i am going with this...
So to sum it up in my opinion i will be relying on my Family, where we already have a semblance of hierarchy and mutual respect and most importantly
thanks for the post !
