I could be totally wrong since I would really love to be a survivalist & I think everyone should not only just know how to survive but have actually
implemented the tools in real life. Thanks OP for bringing the subject matter to attention & I read your idea as a positive one. My understanding
would be meeting & organizing a group before SHTF. This gives the group a chance to get to know one another & to see everyone's strengths &
weakness' which allows more organization so you can be ready & not on the fly. Members who could really benefit would include single people on their
own, someone that relocated & doesn't know anyone yet (especially trying to speak to a stranger about survival) & others that may not have the same
skills but other skills to to contribute to the group. Trust is a HUGE factor, Bloody Hell a major one for me in every day life. I mind my own & most
people are aquaintances in my book, others that are true friends or family I would have their back & take the bullet cz I know they would do the same
for me. There are many members here that have a wealth of knowledge, who can implement their skills, organize & teach other members in their group
what their role is for WSHF! I think the group needs to meet before hand to be prepared, practice certain roles as well as learning & knowing all the
skills in case the leader is taken out & you are possibly on your own.
I think numbers in a group are extremely important, not to many or to less. So under certain circumstances I would be all for it...also there is so
much diverse knowledge amongst ATS members & I would expect to find very few people in an extremely small town to even be prepared or open to the idea
WSHF. That being said I do not see a problem with hiarchy in the group since ALL you brains are not living in the same area are you? In that case I
may need to relocate.
