Ranks right up there with hoarding gold as a security blanket. I have yet to find a decent recipe which includes gold as an ingredient (chicken cordon AU, anyone?)

Nope, best case scenario would be organic transportation, lead, potassium nitrate (saltpeter), sulfur, charcoal and a clean water supply.

I'm always amazed with how long and how far those "Mad Max" scenario guys go without flat tires and how no oil for lubrication is ever needed.
Hush now with your elitist logic. Don't you know we live in a post facts world? If the **** ever hits the fan the living are going to envy the dead.

My parents live in a decent trailer park. When Y2K came around, they had stashed water, dry beans, rice... alot of stuff. They said they wanted to be prepared.

I told them that if it all goes south, law enforcement will go out the window, and youll be robbed at gun point for your food hoard. A lawless homeless man with a gun will be more prepared.

My dad said dont come to him for food then....lol

Anyways, moral of the story is, if lawlessnes breaks out after an EMP attack, and youve got one of the few running vehicles left, you better be ready to live like a Somalian, or Libyan...lol shoot or be shot.

As was said earlier, WHERE will you go? Black diesel will be the last thing to worry about.

But I do think that Id still be interested in the "Soul Glo" jerry curl oil. IF I have to live like Moamhar Ghadafi, then I guess Ill curl my hair up like his.

Different scenario. An EMP wouldn't necessarily be from a physical nuclear attack creating wide spread devastation. It could be caused by an atmospheric event which might be an intentional nuclear detonation above the surface. or a comet, massive solar flare, asteroid impacting the atmosphere, etc., etc.

There, now don't you feel better?

Sigh, I'm thinking, considering your signature line, you might not be the best choice of deciding "tin foil" hat territory.

Dunno about the doomsday scenario, but I can recall the mornings after of a few celebratory events where I found myself in this position.

LOL, that was probably me. Although I wouldnt call it bragging, more like "pointed observations"
And I totally hear you on the organic transportation and the potassium nitrate & water etc. I've got those in abundance. Along with my supply of WMO and my tin foil hat.

well the south area has the rubber trees,I guess one could put together tank treads.In the classic movie the Day after,it shows people running everywhere before bomb blast.Don't people know the sewer is the place to go?
