I have experience handling working animals, and have trained horses to perform various useful jobs- including training to pull carriages, herding and cutting cattle, completing both artificial and actual trail courses, jumping, speed and precision events, and dressage (which plays a large role in the control of a horse). This can come in handy in scenarios where speed, confidence, effort, and precision are key to take control of the situation. I also have experience with showing cattle- while knowing how to train a calf to stand a particular way isn't the most practical skill, knowing how to get into a calf's mind and teach it to work with you instead of against you would be practically invaluable in this situation, assuming there will be animals of the bovine/equine variety in your community. I raise chickens, and prefer my dual-purpose hens, as they both lay eggs and provide meat. I am experienced in the butchering and plucking of them, and I can make a damn good meal out of them. There are many things I have not done, but I am certainly up for learning.

I am a young woman with many, many fertile years to come. I am strong, but not butchy. I am tough and can handle many obstacles. I have experience in cooking, health and nutrition, gardening, first aid, and while I certainly have not bore any children as of yet, I have strong maternal instincts; however, I deal better with adults rather than children. I also hunt, fish, and gather. I am in fit condition, and I prefer to spend my time outside in the first place.

I take advantage of technology, but I do not depend on it like the majority of my peers do. The main reasons I use the internet for are ATS and to listen to old music; however, I prefer the sound of a record player over anything. I could definitely live without computers if SHTF.

I feel that in a SHTF scenario, both your community and I would be better off if I were to join you.

Peace.

Hey OP, are pedantics welcome in this survival compound ?

The scenario also means that we're all "up the proverbial excretory tributary without a proper mode of locomotion."


I'm guessing that would be a yes?


Affirmative, Magicrat.

There has been too much violence. Too much pain. But I have an honorable compromise. Just walk away. Give me your pump, the oil, the gasoline, and the whole compound, and I'll spare your lives. Just walk away and we'll give you a safe passageway in the wastelands. Just walk away and there will be an end to the horror. - The Humungus


I'm sending the Road Warrior for you!

Be afraid... VERY afraid... and go elsewhere to find The Juice!

On a serious note.
You should let me through because I was raised on a farm my entire life. I am skilled at hunting, fishing, growing food, canning food, and have a great knowledge of plants and medicinal properties. I have a stockpile of herbal medicine for anything that ails you or anyone else, and I have the capability of producing more for your people if given the chance.

As a Registered Nurse I would be vital to anyone sick or wounded, and with plenty of experience in Labor and Delivery I could also have the additional benefit of being able to help with any births if they occur. Couple this with my super stockpile of herbal medicine, and perhaps you could overlook my sense of humor?



Now THERE is a winning combination!

If you can grow tobacco and have seed, I might even consider marrying you... on a short-term contract, of course!

In such a scenario I would probably us my infantry combat training and experience to gather and train a small group of young people, to be a self sufficient force capable of raiding relatively soft targets such as yours.

If you paid me some sort of protection tribute, in food, ammo, trade goods, whatever, I would patrol and set ambushes around your area to keep away the sort of people that would skin you and hang you from your own front gate.

If you didn't pay up, then.....

graceundrpressure you win, Beatrice Kiddo, my dog Freud & I want in... our safe zones were destroyed & we have been fighting front, right, left & centre to get back to you, this SHTF world is nasty. You also have showers and plenty of cooks
The up side to letting us in would be that Beatrice can breakdance with a sword killing 88 ninjas in one go and she is a good Mum, my dog is one fierce, highly trained ball of muscle, I have semi psychic abilities, a community sports leaders award (we can't be letting people get unhealthy can we) I can hunt both on my own & with working dogs, I have a stash of duty free tobacco and fags & I also play the horn & sing the blues.

Congratulations keeping this thread alive I have read each page and have had laughter I haven't had in ages from some of our replies S&F

I think this thread has the potential to merge with this one.....Survival Game.

Most of you folks here are West coast.

And someday, we'll need to know how to get past the checkpoint.

There's no reason we can't link back and forth. OP?

I'm deferring to you....

Keeping it alive? Funny, this thread took on a life of its own a while ago. I now know how Dr. Frankenstein must have felt.


'Glad to have the lot of you in the compound. You sound like a fun group.

Come in, Druid. Over.

Now that I examined your avatar more closely and determined that you have no skidmarks on that mask of yours, I feel it's safe to link back and forth between the two threads.

Bail? Never! Plus, it's become too oddly, addictively satisfying to ever abandon. Remember a few pages back when you asked me to "say something profound" and I replied that this thread is but a mirror of all its posters? I include myself in that group.
