if there was civil disorder for a long period of time
In the scenario you describe, survival would be near impossible. You are surrounded by major thorough-fares that are very close to your house, a major city is a fifteen minute drive away, your food stocks are insufficient, you've made NO plans, small P.D., and you are 1.5 hours away........All that paints a very grim picture.Dieter122 said:i sometimes think about...
what if there is civil disorder for a prolonged period of time...say due to war, a massive disaster / terrorist strike, collapse of government, etc...
i know my family wouldnt be budging from our house, as i know my parents would not want to abandon it...
what would you guys do in a situation like this if you didnt have plans to 'bug out' to another location / safe zone?
how would you make your location safe, what steps would you take, what about your neighbors, food, safety, security, etc?
each of us live in a different area of the country, different weather/weather patterns, different environment as a whole (racial makeup of community, different neighbors, different town/city population sizes, different amounts of available water including lakes, ponds, rivers, resivoirs, population density, etc)...all major factors in answering this question with a unique answer.
I know my town has about 14,000 people, we have a canal system literally right across the road, a major highway right nearby, very small PD, 98% or so white population, middle class income (on average, but in my area upper middle to high).... my neighbors are both gun enthusiests, one is a competative pistol shooter, the other a prison guard....train tracks couple hundred feet away....and Albany (major city) is about a 15minute drive down the highway right near my house....we have no plans in case something bad/major happens....only enough food for about a week to a week and a half..right now im 1.5hrs away at college, in a very small college town in the hills/mountains of Oneonta.
