I started reading "Lights Out" and got to thinking, "What would I do if SHTF and a prolonged TEOTWAWKI scenario became reality?" The big unknowns/problems for me are: Communication: Without a traditional infrastructure, how can I coordinate movement with my loved ones who live in Toronto and Iowa with me in Illinois? Power: No generator and not that many batteries on hand for flashlights. Movement: If I chose to move, I have two vehicles to choose from: my Maxima and my Rav4. Both get similar fuel economy but the Maxima has a 30% larger fuel tank. The Rav4 has AWD. In the event of a Mad Max-ish confrontation (high speeds on the highway, evasion, etc.), I'd rather have the Maxima as it's capable of over 140mph, accelerates quickly, and has a suspension that would allow for more aggressive driving in general. Food: Yeah, I can take down game with the AR but I can't go out and kill something every day. I would have to learn to somehow store meat without refrigeration (underground??) Then there's the issue of cooking it; butane lighters run out after so many uses. It would be nice to have more of them around than the two I have.
