This is a SURVIVAL thread that DOESN"T INCLUDE WEAPONS or ELECTRICITY; please stay on topic.
There's the possibility that CME's or WMDs could take out electricity in the future all over the world, and for the masses to survive people will have
to learn real survival skills that don't include weapons or electricity.
There are times when Mother Nature takes out our electricity (Snow and Ice Storms, Volcanic Eruptions, Earthquakes, Tsunami's, Hurricanes, Typhoons,
Floods, Dam Breaks, Landslides, etc..) and we have to do without electricity in order to survive, and it can become a struggle for survival if it
lasts for days, weeks, months and sometimes years.
During these historical periods of people having to survive without electricity we DON"T hear about people using weapons to survive, but we do hear
that people with weapons loot and kill others.
Once this mental picture hits you as being correct, you can see what others ALREADY think of people with weapons during times of survival; they are
thought of as looters, robbers and possible killers. People with weapons won't last very long if they don't have any other survival skills that will
help others in their and your time of need.
So... this thread is about developing and learning survival skills that will help you and others survive long term as well as short term periods of
desperation. There are all kinds of people all over the world that are thinking in this similar manner.
Thanks to YouTube, YT has become the largest video source of learning new skills for survival or otherwise. I hope you'll all join in and give others
good pointers on how to survive without electricity or weapons.
I'll start off by introducing some things that maybe none of you have thought about.
If there's no electricity most vehicles will be of little use except bicycles and certain motor bikes. Here's an interesting low cost motor bike that
is tons of fun and should survive CME's because it doesn't have a battery.
I just bought a 2007 Baja Warrior at auction for $240 that was in mint shape, and I see many more on Craigslist for about that price. This little
motorcycle can get you to and from places at about 20 miles per hour and a tank of gas (half a gallon) lasts more than a day of fun riding. This is
the kind of motor bike that everyone can repair with little or no skills at a very low cost. I weigh around 225, and am close to 6 foot tall and this
bike is fun; it sits low and the tires are fat and wide.
There's no battery on this bike that you have to buy every year; it only has a lawn mower type engine in which all you have to do is push the on
switch on, and turn the gas on, and put the choke on, and give the lawn mower cord a pull and the engine fires right up. The draw back of this bike
is that it isn't street legal, its for fun out in mud, snow, sand dunes and beach areas. But... if the electricity does go out all over the Earth one
of these days due to a CME, my other electronic vehicles won't be running, but this one will; and my other vehicles will have enough gas in their
tanks to keep this one running for weeks, if not months.
