If the end ever went down, and America went up in flames; police unable to control crowds, a global catastrophe, war, or some other event; what is
your plan of escape?
The first thing I would do is gather up the people I trust most (I actually have already talked to 4 of them about this already, more as a joking
thing, but all kidding aside...we do have an action plan as it is fun to think about).
Our first order of business is to meet in a private residence, and take an inventory of weapons, food, and other supplies. Using maps (old school, no
navigation/cell phones planned for in case of a magnetic storm) we plan out our route, and then assign everyone a task of some sort based on his/her
knowledge areas. (One person was a medical student so they are in charge of medical supplies).
Secondly, if news is available we watch to see what areas have the most looters. Ideally we would hit places like K-Mart, Wal Mart, Target, the
places that have ruined this country. At places like that, our plan of attack would be to only hit the medical supplies, pharmacy, food and
ammunition (if applicable). All of us are already gun owners.
If those places are packed, it's sad, but we will have to hit the Mom & Pop stores.We would do it quietly, and make every attempt to not harm anyone
(if anyone was present there). If somebody was present, we would attempt to barter or negotiate, and if it came down to our survival or there's,
obviously take the necessary measures to survive. We would steer clear of any small family owned gun stores, as there would no doubt be some wild
people protecting their stock to the end.
Thirdly, we abandon all of our vehicles, and take one vehicle to a local Hummer/SUV dealer, where we will take 2 Vehicles. We split the driving
between the four/five of us in both vehicles, with an equal amount of weapons, ammo, and supplies in each. We only plan on using these for a maximum
48 hours from our current location to the coast.
Fourth, we drive to the coast stopping at places that are abandoned to scavenged for left-over supplies. We pack as much as we can into our vehicles,
being careful to make sure food is properly stored and preserved for our journey. Within 5 (in case of a flood or deluge) to 48 hours we will reach
Fifth, at the coast, we procure an abandoned boat, yacht, some sort of sailing capability that can hold provisions for upwards of a few days. After
procurement, we stalk up on food, medical supplies and new weapons. The yacht can most likely not hold a vehicle, but it would be ideal.
Sixth, after we have prepared our vessel, we are heading due South to the Caribbean. Depending on the state of the world, we'd ideally like to land
on a small abandoned island, or an uninhabited one. Our sailing voyage would take us down the Eastern Coast of the United States, being careful to
not stray far from the shore line.
Seventh, after arriving at our destination, or scouting several destinations, we plan on settling down to build a new type of society that is based on
knowledge and information, rather than wealth and capitalism. Several trips to the collapsed country of the U.S might be necessary, and probably will
be for a good few years (if we even survive).
What are your plans?
