Assemble everything, with sandbags near the exit of the hole at the top. In an emergency, grab one end of the rope at the bottom and trigger the sand bags to fall. The weight of the sandbags falling will lift you up to the top.
While you are messing around with some complicated mechanical device during SHTF, if you think you will have the time and resources "trying to get something to work", by all means go for it.
human cannonball show, what, exactly do you honestly expect will happen during the SHTF situation?
Do you envision rampaging mobs killing each other indiscriminally for a leaf of red cabbage or a very stale Krispy Kreme donut? Do you feel that it will be every human being on their own, like you?
Or do you think people will band together for one reason or another?
The reason I ask is that your overall system seems to depend on being completely left alone, away from the rest of humanity entirely and your para-gliding escape route only furthers that end.
Going it alone just seems reckless and quite foolhardy, imho.
Ever have to set and mend a broken arm or leg by yourself? Expect one if you land badly.
Yes I have actually more than once. See? There is a huge difference between survivors and boy scouts that watch bear bear grylls
Right now I am working on a hang glider that folds out so I can shoot myself out of the danger tube with it strapped to my back. I am very interested in wayne tech's cape that batman uses.
