I agree with those that say there will be plenty of "unused" resources available - you just have to get to them quickly.
- RV/Motorhomes (look around your neighborhood...they are yours for the taking via finding the keys, hot-wiring)
- Weapons (Police stations, Houses with USMC/Army/Navy flags waived will probably have weapons)
- Walmart, Target, Big 5, Sports Authority, REI, etc (Get to these quick if you have one nearby)
*** Side note: Cell phones might be useless. CB radios, long range walkie-talkies are your best choice***
In the case of an EMP (electro magnetic pulse) you will want to have some means of transportation if our vehicles wont start. For example:
- Classic cars, pre-electronic fuel injection (less electronics on board, more likely to function after an EMP)
Transportation is CRITICAL. Most people in the cities work 20-30 miles away from home and commute everyday. If you're at work and your kids are at
school, you're probably #ed IF your vehicle doesn't start due to an EMP. Second, if it DOES start, good luck "buying" gas if you don't have
enough to get home.
Otherwise, you're going to be forced to walk home (everyones first instinct) and who knows how long its going to take you to get there, especially
without supplies, wearing business attire (high heels do nothing for you except make you look sexy, so carry a good pair of running shoes or hiking
boots in your car along with other supplies).
LAW ENFORCEMENT: Be careful. You are walking targets because you have weapons, and people that dislike you will try to take advantage of the
situation. Cops have balls because they have guns, and backup nearby at all times. when SHTF you will only have 16 friends (unless you have extra
magazines) to back you up so use them wisely.
DISABLED/OBESE/USELESS EXCUSES FOR HUMANS: Sorry, you've spent all your time watching Fox News and playing Call of Duty and WoW, beating off to
midget porn all day and your SSI checks are useless at this point. Guess what happens to you? You guessed right. You're PWNED in RL.
Seriously if you have nothing prepared, you must at LEAST be physically able to walk/hike 10+ miles (or more depending where you live) so if that's
too much for you, I suggest buying a used bike, backpack like Camelbacks with water reservoirs or at least a couple of water bottles, protein bars,
coc aine (for much needed energy boost), marijuana, cigarettes, small flask with liquor.
Maybe I'll give more info later. At this point just realize that your ability to survive is HIGHLY dependent on your physical state. Survival of the
Perhaps 90% of the US population being wiped out (by means of natural selection, survival of the fittest) is not such a bad thing. Too many useless
Americans taking up resources, creating waste, DEPENDING on welfare and taxes to survive, thinking they have the "right" to be cared for and that
Government will always be there for them, and never giving anything back to society. Good riddance.
If you are prepared and survive, then GREAT! You are the ones who will be responsible for establishing a new way of life in the US and around the
world. You are intelligent, capable, problem solvers, and highly efficient. You, along with everyone else who took the time and effort to prepare and
SURVIVE through the initial 30 days (the worst) will see that life will slowly but surely become enjoyable again and we will have a better life after
all the GARBAGE is taken out
We will show the world that we wont be taken without a fight. We won't give up, and those who do give up will meet their fate and honestly we don't
care for those types anyway.
