Background: I am Australian, on the Gold Coast, East coast of Australia. I have a fairly new home, 3 years old. It has a 5000lt water tank, a 3Kw
solar panel system, a garden with enough room for a vegie patch, a pool, we are positioned high enough to see no damage from the latest floods and
extreem weather we have seen in the last few years here in Australia.
We currently have no produce growing, but plenty of room to grow food stuff's if needed. I have 2 kids and a small backup fuel supply.
I do not have any firearms, but would be able to get one if I registered for a firearms license. I am able to defend myself if required. Firearm's
are not the only way to defend one's self.
I know enough about survival and have lived off the land to survive on numerious occasions when I was young.
I grew up in the outback of Australia and know how to look for food, shelter and water.
I know how to set traps, protect my family and property if necessary.
I know my neighbours and would rely on them in dire need.
I have an abundance of food, frozen, canned, and fresh.
I am 20-30 minutes away from a place that is 525 m (1722 ft) above current sea level.
I think I am prepared for when (not if) TSHTF.
So my question is this: Should I stay where I am if TSHTF or move to a different location with a bug out pack?
