... In almost all situations I think your best bet is to stay home, keep a low profile, and look after your family.




That's what i was thinking. The main danger in a societal meltdown will be that while the cops and NGs are busy protecting their families our neighborhoods will be at the mercy of armed roving bands of marauders (not UN troops or black helicopters) looking for alcohol, prescription meds, young women, ammo and food. These marauder's movements will be brutish so therefore easier to predict and plan for.



Our neighbors will be our first line of defence and we will be theirs. Safety in numbers. Stick together, tough it out, elect leaders, distribute extra firearms, man watches, those with much food assist those with less, etc., etc.



Headin' fer the hills may (theoretically) keep one away from danger but eventually y'all will have to come back down and the chances are good that you will find your neighbors had fought it out and came out on top. And not because they had black guns, Special Ops gear and MREs but because they effectively utilized what they already had (canned goods and shotguns, for instance) and joined with their neighbors for the common defence.



Evolution, we all appreciate your concern and planning but neighborhood defence committees may be you and your family's better bet, given the scenario described above is most likely to occur.





Best Wishes,

Irgun

I disagree with the "Get out of town" mode. In my opinion, if the economy goes bust and civil disobedience evolves it will be important to start forming alliances with your neighbors. Join with your neighbors in order to return civility to your community. Doing the old "go out in the woods and hide" will only delay the inevitable down the road. Returning civility to community, town, city, state and nation as soon as possible is very important to ones long term survival. Yes, one must accumulate tools in order to accomplish the civility mode. In the mean time, register to vote, get involved in your local government and vote in November. Have a great day.

Yes, but what type of life would it be? I agree with RedPepper2 - I'd rather take my chances fighting to keep what I have, and fixing what went wrong, than hiding out waiting for other to do that for me.

I don't think you understand what I'm saying. Take my family. We have a farm (out in the woods) we stay there reguraly for a few weeks at a time. I enjoy it there more than home. We keep things there for reason listed above. We have canned food garden spring water ect. We could go there and have a pretty good life for quite sometime.

Very simple.



Shotgun goes into trunk with ammunition case, handgun on me as concealed carry and the other weapon goes with the spouse.



Don't take but 40 seconds or less to be wheels up and gone as they say.



The rest of it we will figure it out as we go along.

Funny you should say that. I keep quite a few heavy "Tripod" bags filled with lamp stands, extension cords and a couple tripods. One of those bags has (instead of tripods) 100 ft of climbing rope, a box of rations, an AR-15 and one of our Mossy HD/Tactical shotguns, both with a generous supply of ammo.



The other day, while we were packing for a photography job at an elementary school, that bag found it's way into the van but I didn't notice it until we arrived. The decision was made to park the vehicle off campus and carry everything in. A little while later the principal (an avid hunter himself) explained that the law in Idaho wasn't written to restrict law abiding citizens from legally carrying when dropping off their kids (or equipment) but firearms do need to remain secured in a case inside a locked vehicle if left on campus. Needless to say, packing up afterwords was much easier.

Sorry; you're correct, I didn't understand that. I was envisioning packing up for some remote mountain hideout and scavenging for food, etc. Your set-up sounds very nice actually.

We already have rations and water and etc etc etc.



It will take a few minutes to load it all.



In certain situations we may not ever be back. So. *Shrugs.

What about forced house by house evacuations? Living in the Ring of Fire I think it is a real possibility so "bugging in" might not be an option.
