Not all chapters will be presented, just selected chapters in an effort to promote discussion.
Understand, I advocate nothing, but if one intends to remain alive under SHTF conditions we need to play the “what if?” game.
Selcos extremely condensed lesson for today…
Our generation and many of the folks who live where I do (and you do), know how to do things to gather food. We hunt, fish, and know how to grow food. But the upcoming generation knows cell phones, the latest “sex yet to be determined” heart throb, and is challenged to assemble a sandwich of meat between bread. When their fragile world that makes all of the things they consume but they can’t supply for themselves, comes crashing down where will they go to get what they need? Understand, they’ve been sponges their entire lives, taking everything from others, contributing nothing, and knowing little of how the world works. Their known source for more won’t change and will continue to be others.
End of that chapter.
I assume Selco means city folks. Today with the WuFlu they have learned to drink, cook what they can find an dhas been provided by others, and make videos, so they’ve expanded their horizons in useless directions. Folks by me haven’t been impacted by WuFlu in the slightest. We know now what we knew before the disease and still largely provide for ourselves, or at least can.
I know it comes as no surprise to the folks here that folks who don’t know squat will see us as their cornucopia, but have you asked yourself if you have enough ammo?? And what will you do to prevent maggots, flies, and disease at your BOL? (bug out location)
Could you do what might need to be done?
Years ago I read an account of a person who had their own fishing pond (Texas?) and he had some sort of an arrangement in it on which he’d put road kill. The floor was extremely open. The maggots would fall into the pond and feed the panfish which he and his family would then consume.
Or I suppose would one could dig countless holes, but then who will fetch the water, the food, yada, yada, that will define existence in the post SHTF world?
