I agree. This thing screams TARGET with possible RICH targets inside. It's a sure death trap. Evan a full modern military tank is no good when
TSHTF.. You have to think resources. gas, oil, limited space, strong but easily blocked/overcome hard to hide.
Even if this thing does 60 mph which I doubt, you will be dead from radiation or blast waves long before you can get to safety. Chances are if your
still alive, you wont really need to try to outrun anything that hasn't already killed you.
In the space of a weeks time all the refined gasoline resources will be used up then you'll be dead in the water. You would have to convert this to
solar or hydrogen or garbage or a mixture of all 3 long before a disaster hits - you'll never know what will effect your resources so it's best
never to count on something that has to be powered by external resources. In other words don't put all your eggs into one basket. If it turns out
this thing is not to be your salvation, make sure you have a good contingency plan to bug out without it.
I suggest the tried and true. Human power vehicles with a 20 lbs resource bag. This bag does not have any sustainable resources in it at all. It only
has tools that you use to get resources you need as you go. Teach your wife and kids to survive on a Swiss army knife budget and not rely on resources
you have at hand and you increase your wife's and kids chances of survival by over 50 percent. Most of you guys have bug out bags filled with all
this stuff that are consumables you want to take along if needed. That's weight that will kill you. Need bandages, antibiotics other medicine? Know
how to find their natural equivalents on the go and don't carry spares. You must know your bug out route and what it contains in the environment. The
only exception to tools (including weapons) you carry are water and very dense food stuffs that are not processed. Nuts, fruit, meats dried or raw
perhaps a few veggies - no sodas, no processed grains or cereals (grains make you fat and slow you down) nothing with sugar or high fructose sugar, no
concentrated carbs like pasta - if it comes in a box, can or plastic wrapper don't carry it, it's poison to you now.
Since you have to have human power for whatever human powered vehicle you choose, Be a strong healthy human. Eat right in preparation before a
disaster.. start now. No BBQ. NO processed foods. No trans fat, Do work out. Let yourself, wife and kids all become bodybuilders so you can be strong
and healthy. I suggest Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe. You wanna eat junk and think your ready for The Big One? You'll be left behind, and
you'll watch your wife and kids suffer because you failed to teach them right. Study survival videos or if you can afford it hire a professional
survival trainer in your local area. Practice, practice, practice. Leave nothing to chance. depend on nothing but yourself.
