A hypothetical for you all.

Part 1.
We have been networking now for some time you have your contacts that are trusted - for various reasons you have to leave your location - would you;
A) Head to one of their locations and seek refuge?
B) Would head out to find a new location to become established in?

Part 2.
One of the regulars you have established a repour with and a trusted member on your network list has arrived at your location unannounced. Would you,
A) Welcome them into you stronghold with the attitude that have to do it out of a sense of loyalty only.
B) Begrudgingly welcome them but let them know you cant sustain their stay for long.
C) Welcome him as a lost brother and brain-storm how you both can now improve your chances against future threats.

Again a hypothetical - but hope to get you all to think closely at your own selves some what more closely and set realistic goals that will put you in both positions and then if an event occurs, this might help with the RIGHT choices.



Thats an easy one

part 1: Go to your own location and make contact with your mate, that way you both have an alternate fall back location or a future location to form trade relations with.

part 2: welcome them in, my main contact has a great wealth of knowledge and I believe would be a 100% great addition to my survival plan.

As for the second brain teaser Id have to go with all of the above, If she has made it to my camp/ area, naked and alone I would have to help her out but I would still have to expect a trap, she could of just escaped someone, run away from a group etc so I couldnt turn her away but it would take a hell of alot for me to trust her. Additionally if she was used as a scout you have a possible human shield or bargaining chip if it came down to it.

All in all I would keep my eyes on her especially if shes naked and a decent looker lmao.

Alright guys I have a few scenarios, they maybe a little darker the last one "naked women and all".

1/ You are in a decently secure location with a small group of people, however there are other groups in your area possibly hostile or friendly. Three small groups arrive at your location. which would you pick and why:
A) a group of 4 rough looking people with loads guns, ammo and weapons but no food or water.
B) a group of 12 children with bags of food, plenty of water and a few sticks and stones.
C) the last group is a builder with his pregnant wife and small child.

2/ Supplies are low and you have a small group looking for you to lead them, an individual comes to your secure location with large amounts of supplies and tells you the location of a large stock pile of food, medical, weapons etc for a safe place to spend the night. Do you:
A) Lead the a large portion of your group to the supposed loaction with the hopes of restocking.
B) Send a scout party to check it out.
C) Tell the man to lead you to the location with an armed escort.
D) Ignore the information.
E) Abandon your location in hopes of resettling.

3/ You and a group of survivours are hidding in an abandoned building, there are hostile personel outside. A small child in your group is crying and you are finding it difficult to keep them quiete. do you:
A) Prepare the group to fight, knowing that you are out manned and out gunned.
B) Try and escape, everyman for himself.
C) Try and lead the hostiles away with a few other survivors while the rest escape.
D) Go it alone and try to draw the enemy away.
E) "SILENCE" the child

Hopefully these will get the group discussions going.

Scenarios
1) Ideally i would like to add all 3 groups, a group of people armed could be an asset for security and foraging. my natural instinct would be to protect the children whether they had food or not same with the family. Forced to choose 1 only, option C. i choose the family, the unborn child and mother are the most at risk on the road.
2) No brainer, option C, trust but verify the chance to restock is worth the risk.. if the individual is lying or baiting.. they dead
3) Option D- no question, minimal risk to group, best chance to evade if on own.

I think I've been on the wrong forum...

In all honesty I'd set up a temp camp and approach a networked camp on my own without vulnerable members to 'feel' the situation out...if I assessed it as safe and appropriate I'd return with the rest of the tribe...added pressure and stress can do funny things to people and I'd be very cautious about the situations I exposed my loved ones too.

In this scenario I could possible be initially accepted more I.e. one mouth as opposed to 5-6 and could discuss their situation and mine. Walking in to any loc unannounced is going to put people on guard let alone a mob of them. It could possibly be seen as respectful and build trust quicker...

Role reversal...power in numbers I say! I'd be completely honest about our capacity to sustain new members but definitely work towards building on strengths and improving both our situations...

What I find interesting is of all the discussions etc I've been looking at people are engaging in physical preps...obviously this is the biggest perceived threat and adequate attention needs to be given. Have there been discussions about prepping to rebuild communities and society? Or is the plan to live life out bivouacked in the bush? Are we hoping for the best? How do we reduce the risks of rebuilding or duplicating the society we have at the moment?

Maybe a bit deep but, maybe these discussions are being had behind closed doors...the way I see it is we (Australians) are well behind the Americans and others in our prepping activities they are far more superior in their preps and possible leaps ahead in their ability to establish themselves...are we looking at potential dejavu? I'm sure those that have already established their primary and secondary prepping needs have/are making these considerations and moving towards developing plans on how they are going to move forward.

I think as much as we need to prepare for a SHTF event we need also to consider post SHTF event...

What do others think?

I'd have to agree with you here...
