I always asume the worst possible scenarios. Be it nuclear, an asteroid, Yellowstone in the worst possible way. After something like that i just don't see much sense in going on with my life.

Of course some small war isn't that "bad" (i guess i would also stick through another world war, my grandparents survived them so i should be able to do it) and i'm thankful i don't live in a place that has earthquakes or tornadoes and even floods aren't much of interest for me.

And why is it disturbing? It's my own life i end, it's not that i take other people with me or harm anyone with it. I just say i won't continue in such a world.

You are talking about the end of civilization, not the end of the world!

So there would be no more shopping malls, or McDonalds, or fancy restaurants. What's left?

The ENTIRETY OF MOTHER NATURE! The rocks, the trees, the birds in the sky... She's not going anywhere. Trust me, if YOU're still alive after whatever catastrophe occurs, then SHE will still be thriving, somewhere nearby.

There are quite a few Kiv who pop up every now and then from north to south.

There would be a large group of people that have all been hand chosen personally, and all have been chosen to meet at a designated area, and we proceed from there to the shelter.

We stop for no one ...and we fire if fired upon.... no questions will be asked.

I have a place that is about 5 miles from the nearest paved road (it's a dead end road so hardly ever used anyway) that no one really has any reason to go. It takes about 30 minutes to drive and another 1 1/2 hour hike. I started to make a supply cache there. I have a water tight bin with eating utensils and some canned food and water and another bin with two 4-man tents and 4 sleeping bags hidden there. It's not much yet but I have a list long of other things that I will begin moving as money/time permits.

If anything happens, I'll be packing up what I can and moving with my wife, 3 kids and one close friend. It will probably take about 4 hours to hike with the kids but I feel save there and there is a fresh water spring close by.

You may have a point there about our military being hesitant to do anything to a U.S. citizen but I'm sure someone has thought of that and that's why they would more than likely use Chinese NATO troops, they wouldn't hesitate to put a bullet in an American. You also threw out alot of numbers there that still don't support what you originally said. You said you knew your building well and could defend it. Am I to believe now if a battalion of soldiers rolled into your neighborhood, that you have better weapons than M1 Abrahms tanks, M3Bradlys, etc, etc, and can fight off a battalion of tankers or mobile infantry? Oh, wait. Silly me, of course one guy can do that. Nevermind, my bad.

If we are talking about end of the world scenario I highly doubt the Chinese will be willing to come over here to take over United States. So I am going to scratch that one off my list.

When the food and water supply goes away you will know who is with you. Who controls the food and clean water controls the minds of the masses. Listen to Gerald Clemente as he tells you play by play what is coming. Remember Food- Will be The Currency of the Future

Women, Children and out of shape males will get you killed. What you describe sounds more like a hippie commune than a shtf gang of ruthless killers that will be the people that survive.

Mobility is the secret to survival. Those hunkering down will be targets for the real survivalists. It'll be fun!

I'm pretty sympathetic. Even if disabilities might slow me down since I originally planned going alone, if I see you I'm taking you to safety with me.

And to men who think women and children will slow them down when shtf: who do you think will help you repopulate the human race? Your blow up doll?

When the SHTF, I'll be sitting next to Jesus on top of a UFO playing a trumpet while stealing your thoughts and spraying red spray paint on the clouds.

But seriously, when the SHTF, I'll be riding a bike to New Mexico.

I agree. Nothing is more important than your family. I would die for mine as well. It sounds like you really have a good plan in case the SHTF. One must hope that we don't enter into this scenario. I know that if we do, I am very strong and will survive. To have love and faith are the most important....along with a few mad skills. If you don't have those things, then we will die of hopelessness.

Just out of curiosity what part of Missouri are you from?

On subject- My entire family on my dad's side of about 20-30 people is very close and we have already discussed that we would all meet at a certain place. We have a huge range of skills from hunting experts to construction experts to life long farmers. Together we have more than enough firearms.
