but then you see another human being approaching. Do you view them as a threat? Or do you see them as a potential ally? They could be either,
or both, they may try to kill you to capture your stockpile, or they might join with you and try to rebuild humanity.
First, I grab the binoculars and try to judge the book by its cover. Then, I scan behind the guy, in the woods, and other surroundings, etc., see if I
see covert movement.
Then, I look in other directions for the same. All my people (fellow people who came to us to survive) arm up and take their positions.
I view them first as a threat, but with the hope they can be an ally. In any case, he's already seen us, and where we are, and since staying hidden is
likely one of the best ways to survive the event, that already is something. I'd hope he could join us and contribute, but there would definitely be a
probation period. Trust is earned, not granted. If he decides he'd rather move along, not so sure then. Would have to be a case by case, and mostly
from my gut (and the consensus of those with me).
If we did send him on his way, it'd likely be while blindfolded, and then driven far, far away, but to an end destination he'd at least be ok with. I
wouldn't want to make him an enemy, but I don't want it to be easy to get back to us either.
IF you survive...would we WANT TO? You will spend all your time fighting to stay alive against those of us who dont have what you do...and
Im as 1st Responder...and even so...Im not sure I want to live to see an APOCALIPTIC word-Worst Case Scenario. I hope Im dead and gone by
That's why survival rule number one is to stay hidden. If we survive the event...we then have other people as our biggest threat. So, being unknown is
the single biggest survival advantage you can have.
