Thread to discuss ideas and methodology for surviving SHTF. Time for some real talk about painful truths.
Background: Married, professional, 4 yr old daughter. Live in suburbs, near a large city but not too close. Have only a couple of weapons (12 gauge pump shotgun, Ruger 10/22).
The plan: Using a separate bank account and PO box I secured a small piece of land in the mountains. My wife has no knowledge of this. I build a small, mostly underground, 2 room shelter and stocked it with supplies. This will be my destination. I have supplies for one person to make it at least a year, and enough land for a garden to supplement it. A small creek nearby can provide additional water (I have filters). My likely plan will be to tell my wife I am going out to check on a neighbor, and then driving to my shelter.
Problems: First the wife. Do I leave her the 10/22 or bring it with me in case I need to hunt small game? I can see both ways. If roving hoards attack she will surely be raped/murdered. Do I leave the 10/22 so she has the suicide option for her and our daughter if needed? I almost think it would just get captured so might as well take it with me. Second problem – daughter. She will likely be killed or sold into sex slavery. I am not too worried about it since we can have another. Do I chance bringing a child with me or is it better to let them take their chances at home?
Final part of the plan is to act like I was kidnapped if SHTF is resolved quickly. That way my wife will treat me like a returning hero and will never know the difference.
Execute your wife and daughter
try to contact a bunch of kommandos
become a group of communist bandits
fuck shit up
Abandoning your wife and kid to go build your LOOSHELTER after shtf. If it's not already ready by then forget about it. Abandoning your wife and child makes you a degenerate piece of shit. Seriously I hope something collapses on you and pins you to the ground while your alone and you have to die slowly and alone. Fucking useless coward.
Umm.... Anon, if you are not truly autistic then it's time to see a doctor.
You should have compassion for your fellow man INCLUDING your family
Jesus dude, you're the man of the house.
Take the women with you to the bunker
Your not really a father. If you are then your a piece of shit.
How in the fuck could you just abandon them? As a father/husband it is your job to make sure they make it through any situation safely
With that in mind you firstly make it to them at any cost. Then you get to your land and weather the storm together like a good fucking man
Trolls pls go
My plan is to have a few thousand rounds at the shelter, and maybe 500 in the car just in case. The problem is we are a one car family and I don't want my wife to find hoarded ammo in the trunk.
a few thousand rounds of ammo gets you a bj in SHTF anon
You're either full of shit about being married with a kid or deserve the inevitable cucking you're bound to recieve
I hope your kid gets a cool stepdad sempai
You know what the problem with these threads are, the way to survive different terrible situations are all different. We never elaborate on the specifics.
What are we talking about here?
Government turns more evil than usual?
Super-sized natural disaster?
Pissed off the Crips?
Trump elected president?
The OP makes this exact same thread about where he creates a fictional family that he plans to abandon for the sake of trolling. Nothing about this is legitimate, it's a massive shitpost.
Wow. You know that a solo person dies quick, right? Given that you are wanting to abandon your wife and kid I say go for it. The world will be better off without you.
I personally would rather have 2 months supply for 8 then a year for one. I can always forage with others for more food. Plus I can rest easier knowing someone is on watch.
"And from my expirience, you can not survive alone, strength is in the numbers, be close with your family, prepare with them, choose your friends wisely and prepare with them too."

what kind of father are you man
like is your wife and daughter both retarded and crippled? Because then that might make sense
sounds to me more like you just hate being tied down in a family as you're a fucking degenerate symptom of the putrid illness permeating modern society
he wouldn't exactly be the first guy in history to run out on his family
it's fucked up but some people do this
but if he does this I don't think returning to his wife is an option, people are smart enough to figure out that he abandoned them
10/10 bait, everyone is taking it
And OP, to critique your 'plan" - that creek aint gonna stay a creek over summer and winter.
You need to stock up on water. Store it underground.
Talk about a camping trip as an excuse to introduce your family to the land.
Talk to local fudds. Find out what game is innawoods. you cannon rely on squirrel.
Learn what factors drive animals away. You can lay food blocks and salt licks out but deer will always go to where real food is.
Teach your daughter to use the 10/22 and find a .243 bolt gun, teach your wife to shoot.
Find a good .308 and have the muzzle threaded. Buy an AR.
If you plan on farming, set up a dry practice so you arn't wondering why your broccili is muddy as shit and why its all washing downhill.
This'll be fun. Lay some reality on me, senpai.
I live in small town Texas, have an arsenal of semi-autos, bolt actions, and a shotgun. As it stands, I'm ready to hop in my Ram and bug out with my guns in the event of a SHTF scenario.
My five year plan involves building an off road rig out of a Ramcharger - swapping a 12v Cummins and heavy duty axles/suspension onto the nigh indestructible frame. Auxiliary fuel, water tank, gas generator, long range CB, and other essentials will turn it into a moving fortress. Intending to buy and sell my arsenal until I have a dedicated weapon for every scenario.
ie, Ruger 10/22 for Varmints, Mossberg 930 SPX for close encounters, M&P15 5.56 for anti-personel, M&P9 for sidearm, and a Remington 700 CDL for game hunting. Ideally, I'd have a surplus of 1000 rounds for each firearm, excepting the .308 and 12ga which would be acceptable at 400-500 rounds.
The plan is to load up both my Ramcharger and the Ram with supplies, giving me and my wife a back up vehicle in the worst case scenario. We'd head north, potentially all the way into Canada, until we could find a relatively safe plot of land to settle and wait out the scenario.
Both of us have hunting, survivalist, and gardening experience that should get us by as far as basic sustainability. I'm an experienced contractor and know how to build shelters and defensive structures. I have the tools to get things done and the experience to accomplish.
Presumably, I'd contact a few trusted friends to convene with us either to convoy north or meet up at a designated safe place.
Where's the flaw in my planning?
There are weaknesses in your personnel selection and destination. It would be an uphill battle, but if you can keep your vehicle(s) fueled and running you might make it.
You barely have enough ammo, not enough guns. Handguns for everybody, and more than one AR & shotgun each I'd hope.
Really the plan to drive all the way across the US into the Yukon unharmed is ludicrous. Get comfortable on the water
/k/ is the easiest board to troll.
Every single day these amerifats take the bait. Is it your education? Fucking inbreds
Really, the plan is mostly to take the least travelled roads and go off road where necessary. Building the Ramcharger is a bigger priority than anything else because of its massive value in all terrain situations. The guns I listed are just what I want for my own use. My Enfield, shotgun, and maybe one of my AK47s will probably stay in my possession for a starter arsenal for my wife.
Interior Manitoba would be the farthest we'd likely travel. I just intend to locate a remote stretch of liveable land and hole up. Ideally, far from people and with decent hunting in the region.
My plan is to avoid people, but I've got little love for my fellow man and a massive distrust of strangers even in normal situations.
you have another flaw in your plan in that it relies on a Chrysler product not breaking at the literally most inopportune moment possible.
I'd love to see a K5 blazer do half the shit a Diesel Ramcharger is capable of. The thing is essentially a tank. It'll have the single most universally acclaimed Diesel engine powering it. There is no flaw in my vehicle choice other that sheer mass, and that's subjective. Police blockade? Motherfucker please, enjoy trying to chase me down in your broke in half plastic crumble zone toy.
You will never live through a Mad Max scenario.
Sorry, but it just won't happen. At best you might get a couple days of looting and chaos like Katrina, but you aren't going to become a road warrior.
Your best bet (no matter what happens) will be to pack your shit and leave.
