Having read the op, the question is valid, if one of the gloom and doom scenarios were to happen and modern way of life were to end, who would come
and what would their role be.
Before I tell you what my role would be, here is who I would like to have with me.
I personally would want someone who was 60 and 70 years old along with us. The main reason is that while they may be old, they would possess the
necessary skills that many do not have or have needed in years. That group of people lived and did without many of the modern conveniences. So they
would know how to plant a garden, how to sew, how to cook and other skills that are becoming a rarity these days. And they also did many of such by
hand. Their knowledge is something that would be invaluable, and thus an excellent resource.
The first month would be rough, as we would have to find a source of water. All other considerations would be secondary to having a source of
drinking water, that in itself would be essential. Once the source of drinking water was found, the next would be setting up a base camp for shelter
For myself, I would probably be the cook and person who can sew, along with identify edible plants initially. I know how to gather food, and preserve
some of it for the long haul. Though it would be touch and go at first, having to learn a few skills. And I can also grow a garden as well.
