One key element to surviving a SHTF scenario is (to me) having a group of people you can count on, as a group can accomplish, and protect, more in
such a situation.
After all, the primary threat is likely to come from gangs of thugs, not a lone warrior.
A small family may do well initially, on their own land in the boonies...but once found, then what?
To that end, there are two elements I've adopted towards ensuring to have a group around me.
1.) Family and friends - As they all live in the city, they know our place (in the country) is kind of a safe place, and redoubt, in the case of some
2.) Neighbors - The good thing about living in the country, is knowing your neighbors. We already look out for each other, and most of them are at
least hurricane preppers, and just country folk who prep more as a way of life and self sufficiency anyhow.
Do you have a group you'd assemble in a SHTF scenario? Or, is your plan to be kind of a lone wolf survivor in the woods, or a lone traveler trading
goods and services for food and lodging?
