I have several books on urban survival in hard times to come and some stuff in it says.
Good points and well put. I agree with your whole post and it got me thinking. Let me add a few things if I may.
Your point about our pets is important, if the worst case scenario comes true, and I really hope it doesn't, they will definitely not be worried about
our animals, unless they are a food source that is needed, so pets are done. I have heard it said that when they come to close down your neighborhood
and round people up, they will probably have an excuse to maintain some sort of control. As ofhumandescent said probably famine (a rather brief
interruption in transportation or fuel supplies would do this very quickly) or a biological health crisis. I have no doubt that they will be able to
convince most people that it is humane to end your pets impending suffering now, before it actually begins.
Will they close the subdivisions and round all the undesirables up? Don't know. However I once did a search on torrentbay or kat.ph of the word
"survival" and then downloaded everything I found. Viruses? Simple Fdisk and reload, but I never got any. Anyway...
I got a lot of good stuff, and some crap. But one of the things I got was supposedly from Anonymous. I say supposedly because although it had screen
shots that looked genuine and information on privacy on the web, that doesn't prove it was from anonymous in my mind, nor would it on ATS.
Having said that, the package contained a description of roundup day. It explained that we will all be told to report to the Post Office to register.
We are then cautioned in the strongest terms not to go, but instead to leave immediately. If you go to register you will not be returning home, we
When you show up at the P.O. the guy behind the counter will be armed. After registering you will be instructed to report to a semi trailer in the
back of the P.O. for further consideration, a food package, temporary relocation placement, job assignment or shots to immunize you against a coming
plague of some sort. When you go into the trailer you will not come back out, that is your transportation to the FEMA camp.
Well that is what it said for what it is worth. Personally, I think it will be more along the lines of shutting down subdivisions and sections of
cities and doing a sweep.
As for preparations, I can honestly say that I moved three thousand miles to be in a better area to get away, should it come to that. My old location
was right up against the Mississippi River and though it was very wild, it was actually owned by the Army Corps of Engineers. Wasn't a good starting
place at all.
I have also traded my sports car for a 3/4 ton F250 Camper Special and have a big topper for it. I am also about to buy an old camper stretch van.
Both vehicles have points and no microchips as they are antiques. I am working on my BOB every chance I get.
Sold my guns when I moved to get here, but am about to get a hunting rifle and a stout handgun. Settled on a 40 because it hits almost as hard and
you get more rounds to the clip. As soon as summer hits we are going camping and finding a close place that we can get to by walking if necessary.
Have been thinking about stashing the old camper and hitting it with camo, but still considering the pros and cons. I also have a good tent and
I have also studied how to get water when there is none handy, at least enough to stay alive and when we camp this summer we will not allow ourselves
anything but survival fire starting methods. I have a few books on wild food and though I will be missing my steaks and baked potatoes, I do plan on
taking a seed pack with me. (I was a boy scout long enough to learn to be prepared
Now I have not made all these preparations because I think this will happen, but because I think it could happen. So much has happened in the last
twenty or thirty years that I thought I would never see, that we must admit to ourselves that anything could happen. I am also about to can food this
summer. I have a lot of shelves for canned goods in my basement, and if i stash the camper I will also be stashing food and other things nearby, if
for nothing else but getting started.
Where I am there are no snakes but there are bears. As far as I am concerned I would rather be eaten by a bear the third day than spend one day in a
FEMA camp or at the hands of FEMA. I've had the misfortune of having FEMA visit my former home the last time we were flooded, these guys are not
there to help people, they are there to control. We had been through floods many times before FEMA showed up and never had any problems. None! The
year FEMA showed up all they did was hinder what we already knew how to do only too well. That year we had 3 deaths.
