with relations between the us and russia getting worse by the day, is it time to start thinking about fallout/blast shelters if shit hits the fan and we engage in nuclear war?

or is the prospect of even a regional/limited nuclear exchange so daunting that it'd be better to run to midtown Manhattan or the Mall in D.C. to ensure you go in a flash should the missiles fly?

pic related, it's what you see when the world's about to end

When SHTF, we tend to have ideas about survival, government, fuel, and food. But what about the stuff that makes life worth living?

I'm talking about booze, of course. Eventually, the liquor reserves of the world will run dry. Luckily, I know how to make some good old mountain dew. Perfect for trade, and fuel, and above all else, morale.

Does anyone else have a similar skill set?

This is incorrect. You can not ferment to higher strengths than ~20% ABV since alcohol levels that high kills the yeast. Any excess sugar will only make the mash sweeter.

If you don't distill it you can let the yeast settle for a few days, then pump the mash into a different container, taking care to leave the gunk at the bottom (which you then throw away). Repeat this a few times and you've got yourself something that might be about 15% ABV and doesn't taste terrible.

Spices, fruit or a mixer can be used to hide the unpleasant yeast flavor. It's really easy to make and garanteed to get you drunk (seeing as it's more than double the strength of your typical beer).

Distilling the mash to make spirits isn't difficult, but requires equipment to control the heating of the mash, to cool and collect the vapors and to measure the temperature.

It also requires watching to make sure the temperature's in the right range (>80 <90 C). You will also not want to drink the first and last decilitres (so called head and tail) as they'll taste like crap.

So while it's not difficult, it's a lot more involved than just making mash.

I thought the increased use of glass, ceramic, and metal because plastics were hard to get thanks to oil be scarce as hell was realistic. Also, the increased size and relative slowness of advanced computers.

I also liked that guns sucked as hundreds of years of firing and improper maintenance probably made even the best ones essentially smooth-bore. Barrels do in-fact wear out.

Chernobyl was a catastrophic failure of a nuclear reactor, it's not a good comparative for contamination like that on scale of nuclear conflict.

Chernobyl is also still extremely dangerous, radiation still persists in lethal pockets all over the Exclusion Zone. There also are reports from military patrols and clean-up crews of glowing red trees, disfigured animals, mutated animals, odd plant life, ect... On the scale of released radiation, as a long running scenario the contamination is environmentally damaging, but not significant outside that.

Both Nagasaki and Hiroshima sustained minimal radiation release, each device had less than a 15% burn of it's core...meaning the release of radiation was minimal overall. Together, they're a paltry 38 kilotons.

The Nevada Test Site is peppered with contaminated locations, the majority of test detonations having occurred underground, yet it is one of the most heavily contaminated locations in the US. NTS is often used to train military and governmental agency response personnel in a real radiological environment. The majority of tests revolved around Tests Effects, Weapons Development, and various other experiments. In total, around 200MT worth of weapons has been detonated in Nevada, the overall equivalent of total yield released world wide is 510MT over a 65 year period.

The location of all the US' larger detonations, Bikini Atoll has vegetation that is contaminated on a lethal level, as is the sand. Fortunately the wrecks around the atoll, apart of "Operation Crossroads" have minimal radioactive contamination. That is mostly due to the fact that water shares most of the base elements with that of the contaminating radioisotopes, the base elements dilute the lethality of the radioisotopes making the threat minimal, if at all.

The overall peak of nuclear weapons stockpiling in the 1960's hit 5,300MT in equivalent yield, or just over 10x great than that of which has been released since 1945.

I think it's fair to say we have no idea how the environment would react or how the landscape would look after a global nuclear conflict.

The best way to protect against radioactive pollution is to eat mineral supplements with trace minerals like cesium

If the body is saturated from a clean source its much less likely to absorb a polluted one.

This implies that you have alpha particle radiation.

Which is very unlikely mainly due to the fact that it'll only get into you system through breathing it in or eating it.

Beta particles and gamma radiation both just zip on straight through you doing whatever damage it does.

You should really be looking at how to deal with radiation poisoning rather than removing radioactive particles from your body.

A lot of survival scenarios involve hiking for long distances and setting up camp in the wild. I want to know if there are any people here that have good information on surviving in the wilderness. I go on day hikes often but I'm still new to camping and actual survival without civilization. I plan on going hiking/camping, each time going for another day or two until I feel comfortable spending a week alone living off of the land.

Does anyone else spend multiple days and nights outdoors or have more off-grid lifestyles?

I do it, and you're absolutely right, you should work up to it. Get to know your local wild eatables. Also, it's important for you to do this year round...Summer is easy, in most places. Fall and spring are only mildly less so, full of wild greens, fall, especially, full of wild berries and nuts.

Winter is where your true test lies. When you can spend a week in winter with nothing but basic gear, then you've got a chance.

There is a population of 10 million in LA County. In a space of 4,083 square miles (10,570 km2).

Its probably closer to 15 million I don't know when the census was taken or how many people are there illegally the point is its super dense population in some areas. New York/New Jersey is even worse in that regard.

The red zones on this map will be the most dangerous places to survive. There will be looting and maybe even widescale violence, so we know these are the places that will be the most dangerous.

Do you live in a red zone? What would be your plan? Hold your ground in the red zone and try to somehow sustain yourself in one those areas? Bug out to a more sparsely populated area?

If you don't live in a red zone how would you react to refugees? I live in a red zone, but I have family in very rural areas so I would be welcomed. If you don't know anyone in those areas what's your plan for bugging out?

In a kit centered around treating people around my vehicle i dont see a headlamp to be necessary. If i cant safely reach the patient im probably not going to treat them, Especially with my car kit.

I would prefer a headlamp in a wilderness situation, a torch for search and rescue when i still need to locate my patient, and chemical lights anywhere near a motor vehicle collision with flammable materials. None of that means a headlamp is useless in a car kit, etc. It just largely becomes a question of preference.

i spend alot of time out side at night where i may be near my car, but i cant bring my car to where im at. mostly parks beaches trails and stuff like that.

i guess you could just have the person hold the light if they are awake.

i mean to be fair, half of the stuff in your bag you will likely never use (thank god) but its there for the off chance that you might need it so you bring it with you any ways.

Then i totally agree with the headlamp. I have half a dozen different medical kits so they all fill very specific roles. When im going out on a trail i bring a separate IFAK and leave my car kit in the car for example.

resurrecting this post from page 10

seeing a lot of theory threads, not many quantifiably useful informational ones. this one seems important though.

Found this game in /vg/, looks like a gear-and-craft heavy survival sim. you have to worry about things like blood loss, diarreah, poisoning, infections, sleep, etc.

I'll experiment some more but I think you're wrong. If the enemy is not recovering and you are fallen, they will almost always hit you. And if they hit you it could knock you down again or even worse force you into recovery mode. If the enemy is recovering then of course just stand up. Rolling will almost always force them into recovery. It's basically risk-less unless the enemy has a gun.

I usually don't use pull down unless it's an emergency. If the enemy knocks you down and they have a loaded gun, you can pull them down and have a chance to run or kill them while they recover. You NEVER want to be standing face to face with a loaded gun or trying to dodge bullets

If you want to approach and kill an enemy with a loaded gun and you don't have one, try taking cover and moving towards them until they are close, then pop out and tackle them. If they ever manage to stand up while you're fallen then pull them down until you're the only one standing. Then kill them

I don't think roll/parry/dodge works very well against guns but I'm not positive

I'm not really a fan of trapping. I usually pick Melee, Strong, Hiding, and Ranged

I would still recommend against drinking unboiled water or wasting your antibiotics until it's an emergency. Boiled water is extremely easy to get. And I think you can get infections from wounds so you want to save up antibiotics for that. Can anyone confirm/deny this?

If you want them to retreat/surrender it helps if you're holding a gun. And I think wounding them first probably helps.

You might want to try athletics until you get better at fighting/scavenging. It will make it possible to run from pretty much any fight. It's a pain in the ass though because sometimes you have to run a million times before you finally create enough distance to escape.

And I think they can still see you if you're in their line of sight/range even if you hide your tracks. Somebody should confirm/deny this.

You probably just accidentally didn't see the frying pan. Or another bandit could have joined the fight half way through and you might not have noticed(Anyone know if this is possible?). NPCs do not switch weapons as far as I know.(Again, need clarification)

I've never understood the benefit of having a hideout or upgrading the cryolab. I've never had enough rare items that I needed to stash them to make space. It can help with sleeping and crafting but you'd have to travel back to it every single time(Which could just cause you more hardship since you want to get to detroit ASAP). And I've never had a problem with sleeping. It seems to be the least of my concerns. But maybe it becomes necessary super-late in the game to stash items somewhere.

You will gain cannibalism and you'll be required to eat a lot more food to survive. I recommend against this.

I think this is the first time in ten years that I've typed 'Neo' into Google and some Matrix shit didn't immediately pop up. Hell, this game was the first result on the drop-down list. Definitely gonna check them shits out.

the newest update is pretty cool.

they polished it alittle bit and made the little hex avatars with more continuity to what a character looks like.

now you can talk to people who are just scavangers.

theres new places to go, places to see and more to learn about the character.

new boots, new clothes. new weapons.

all the others are now new factions.

i last longer it seems, but its still not easy. i can still make it to only 6 days.

sometimes guns are more available, sometimes meds are more available, sometimes its all trash and raiders, haha/

Well this game is just survivaly as hell.

So far it seems like a text version of Haven And Hearth.
