SHTF – After Armageddon
Look around and notice the increased number of massive disasters that have struck the U.S. in recent years, going back to Hurricane Katrina in fact that devastated New Orleans. Then look globally to Fukushima and the Japanese in large numbers who were forced to evacuate on short notice due to the nuclear reactor meltdown.
Another good reason? The Cold War is back from the pages of history — and it’s back with a vengeance. The U.S. may finally find itself in a massive conflict with Russia in the coming years (if you’ve been watching the news recently you already know this).
Whatever the next disaster, are you prepared to evacuate on short notice? Or like a lot of people not prepared, are you ready to lose everything? A good Bug Out Bag can be a life saver in that regard.
One tactic that will make bugging out go quickly is having 80% of your gear (and food) already packed and just waiting in a closet in your home or your garage for that day when you’re going to need to evacuate with your gear, knowing you might be in a hurry.
When bugging out by a vehicle as your first means of escape, there are a number of other items that will come in necessary at different times, including fishing gear, hunting gear, and gear for self defense. Personal hygiene needs, communications equipment like a CB and two way radios …
Keep in mind that traveling will likely be an important aspect of surviving in a post apocalypse.
Gun stores will be raided as well (though not all of those raids are likely to end well). Hospitals and medical clinics will be next. As the days and weeks pass, and refugees and other survivors make their way for more remote suburbs and smaller towns, in a number of areas several places will serve as good places to get supplies and other resources — just depends on who is thinking that day, and realizes these places exist, and then gets there while there are still supplies to be had.
Defense Strategy and Capabilities .Conflicts and alliances around the globe are shifting constantly, enhancing the need for reliable and timely research and analysis. CSIS analyzes a wide range of issues related to defense strategy and capabilities.
Anything can happen in a land without laws or organized government.
What will happen when the state collapses? Will society descend into lawlessness, or can we seize the opportunity to let our human potential flourish?
Detailed tips on what it may take to survive in a land where crime and violence are rampant, stores have closed down, and the only food you have is either what you stored before hand, or what you can grow, find, or barter for.
A major disaster including a wave of homegrown terrorists with chemical bombs will make several regions dangerous places to live.
Your survival depends on your ability to create a fire easily and repeatedly. Those words are important. If it takes you a half hour to find kindling and combustibles, you don’t want to spend another cold and hungry half hour trying to bang rocks together to get a spark. That’s far too much time and energy wasted. However, matches or lighters will not be the solution either. During the apocalypse, you’ll need to create a fire nearly everyday to cook your food, sanitize drinking water and to warm your bones.
