I hunt and fish close to my house, we have a giant deer stand which i imagine i could convert into a living space with the use of a tent. guns and ammo are also not an issue.


are you able to go stealth against radar? what you have is good, if you can cloak that you can conserve your ammo much longer than needed.

Per 20 acres you might be lucky to have 1 deer, 20 squirrels and 5-10 rabbits. Dont know if you ever ate squirrel but the meat content on them wouldnt last a week. Deer you could live off for about a month if thats all you ate.

You also have to look at we are going into winter. Good luck growing any vegetables.


as I've said before don't make me explain everything, but yeah I've eaten squirrel before, and one squirrel will not last a week maybe a good meal for a a day.

the location I have in mind actually has very good fishing throughout the winter, not to mention duck and goose, I'm talking one day for a week or 2 worth of food capable.

plus side is also that the location I have in mind isn't very densely populated so I doubt there would be too much competition outside of the locals that are already there. which a fair amount would probably move out due to the lack of paying work that would be available.

It isnt like society hasnt lived with out refrigirators or electricity before. You just have to know how to do the stuff and have the proper equipment to do it. While everyone is killing each other off I will be settled on a nice 1000 acres piece of land with water and food source. Biggest thing is when every one is trying to get out the cities and having no gas to do it.

Smoked deer will last you but you can can it (mason jars water and salt) and it will last longer.


With a little pepper and juniper, it wouldn't be too bad.

Who exactly will be tracking me?

good question, my assumption that at first the worse place to be would be in a city that's why my first move will to be out of the city in 5 hours, with everything essential, my plan would either east or west while west would be better in the summer east would be better in the winter and that's why I would go there.

get far enough from the closest city say 20-40 miles at least out and no one is going to bother you. remember gas will be like gold at this point and no one is going to go out in the middle of nowhere without a very good reason. my location in mind my uncle owns a horse farm so that would be my new mode of transportation. and it has plenty of natural resources at had, not to mentions farms near by so what I could not get in hunting and fishing I could make up for with trading or stealing from them.

like I've said I've planned this out

i would post my preemptive plans but i'm going to assume the internet will still be around for a while and my posts could be used to track me down if some ill-intentioned soul was after me.
