everyone has their own preference in vehicle make and year, but when SHTF what car would you have? Remember that this car is your means of transportation as well as a rolling safehouse. List vehicle as well as upgrades, mods, items you keep in said vehicle. aaaaaaand go.

this is a decent idea. the only issue is a board grinds to a screeching halt as soon as a little rock jams a wheel. (/asp/ fags know)

I suggest getting a long board w/ the kevlar thing (also less work, less energy expended). there's also off-road wheels you can get for them. and extra bearings. they die eventually.

Chevy or Dodge van, late eighties to early nineties (they're roomier), with bulletproof glass, honeycombed tires, plating on the sides and bottom, plus extra protection around the engine and some steel storm shutters for the windows, doors, and tires, all accessible and used from the interior, and some spotlights on the side mirrors 5-0 style. A couple of solar panels for the roof, a multiple battery type charger that goes for cars, wall outlets, and USB as well as an emergency radio all in one, a HAM radio, a CB radio, my MP3 player/cell phone loaded with my apocalypse mix, my kindle (loaded with BSA handbooks, road atlases, Chilton's Manual for the van, that kind of thing), a portable DVD player with a fat stack of good flicks that can either directly use the solar panel or can be run off the charger, and cords to connect the lot to the radio in the van. Strip most of the interior, throw some hammocks up for sleeping, a lawn chair for sitting in, and a cot for relaxing prone/medical needs, shelving for food storage and other scavenged/scrounged/traded for items deemed necessary. A rain water collector that goes from the roof to a filter in the roof to the collection bucket inside, jerry tanks of gas on the trunk doors (or the doors where the trunk would be), along with a single speed bicycle with an electric motor conversion for sorties. And myself, of course.

most people don't do this, but you can clean and grease bearings to last significantly longer, but you're right about the long board thing, tho you could always put risers and big wheels on a smaller deck, for when you have to carry it around or store it, but a larger deck is definately more stable at higher speed.

the link shows a partly kevlar board ~prob not bulletproof~ but it has straps, which do enhance its defensive capabilities.

/law/ isn't as gung-ho about ditching the old ways, you know?

I ran into a bit of trouble with some loansharks who may also be well affiliated with the military and have access to government databases. How would I go about starting over without raising any flags? I haven't actually looked anything up yet, but I'm guessing it goes like this: 1) ditch everything from my old life that can be tied to me (done), 2) obtain new false birth record, 3) obtain new government ID with new false birth record, 4) lay low for the rest of my life and be chill. So then, how do I obtain a false birth record? Once that's done, getting a new gov. ID is easy peasy (birth record, plus 2 pieces of mail addressed to me = proof of residency and/or citizenship = good2go for a new ID card). There's also the ticklish business of obtaining a new social security number so I can get a job (thanks for fucking that up for everyone, Mexico). Any help you give me may implicate you in saving my life, which would be greatly appreciated.

Post Script: would assuming the identity of a deceased person be feasible these days? Do I need to find someone roughly my age? Does a death record go all the way up to the top (meaning, would it be obvious to anyone doing a routine check that the person I was assuming the identity of is actually dead and I'm an usurper?)

You're risking prison, which would make you incredibly easy to kill on the inside. You can keep your government name without using it on the grid. You can move elsewhere, get an under the table job, and just use cash.

That, or you can move to another country.

I don't know how many other females post or lurk /fo/ but I wanted to share some info. Maybe guys with girlfriends conscious of /fo/ things might benefit from this too.

I always wondered what the hell I would do if I had no more access to feminine products. I wondered what I would do if stores shut down and ran out of products, or if I had to suddenly leave and rough it for a while. One day while walking around my neighborhood, I stopped to pet a dog and chatted with the owner. She was a crafter. She sold hand made blankets, clothes, dolls, and other things. She brought up her current project was making crochet and knitted tampons and pads out of organic cotton. She was selling them as eco-friendly alternatives to commercial products since you could wash and reuse them plus boil them for sterilization. Most commercial pads and tampons aren't sterile, and each one creates a lot of waste. It was a weird conversation, but I walked away feeling better because I knew I could task myself in making some if I ever needed. Learning to crochet or knit isn't terribly hard, and the patterns you need to know to make these are pretty basic. All you need is yarn of some kind. And if society were to completely collapse, I guess you could always learn how to make yarn, cotton, wool, twine, or whatever as material. So gals, and guys with gals, look up how to make these and save yourself from bleeding all over everywhere when shit hits the fan.

Lady here, and I just wanted to second the diva cup. I went on a three week thru-hike and sure as hell did not want to carry giant packages of disposables with me. The diva cup was awesome and easy to clean. Also brought a reusable pad made with flannel, which can be washed after use. I don't use disposables any more at all honestly, it's nice not to have the waste and the reuseables are much more comfortable imo.

I'm good at making fires and gathering firewood. I usually can find dry kindling just about anywhere (I live in the PNW, so finding dry...well...anything is kinda rare). Look under large evergreen trees, especially cedars, they shed rain really well and tend to keep the stuff at their base dry.

Alot of it is just common sense, like once you get your fire going, start moving wet wood next to the fire to dry out, build a semi-circle of rocks instead of a full circle (make it like a wall to reflect heat back at you).

Oh also;
>Gather 5X as much firewood than the initial amount you gather. It burns faster than you think, and stumbling around the woods like a dumbfuck in the middle of the night looking for wood isn't fun.

I prefer the "stages" style of building a fire, as opposed to the teepee/cabin styles they teach Boy Scouts. I'll use homemade tin-can fire starters if need be.

I'mma bit drunk now, but I'll come back and elaborate later about my methods and such if anyone wants.

I did a lot of minimalist camping when I was younger, fishing for dinner, eating oats and foraged greens for breakfast. Making fires with no matches. Good times. Besides that I have basic experience with firearms. I'm a decent diplomat. I can cook. I'm pretty technically savvy. Though I have no idea how to hot wire a car, with enough time I could probably figure it out though. I know a bit of first aid but I really want to take a class so I can learn how to set a bone properly and do CPR, I've been taught how to stitch myself up and how to treat burns though. I'm of sound mental and physical health as well so I don't need medication or anything besides water, shelter, and basic nutrition if the shit goes down. Oh yeah, and I spent two years gardening.

One thing I've always wondered though, is how many people with genetic diseases like asthma and diabetes would die in a longterm Postapoc scenario. Probably a lot. I know some people that would not fare well just due to being born with a genetic deficiency if society were to somehow collapse. :(

you cant reallly hot wire new cars because theres an RF chip in the key that talks with the ignition. in the old days you just took the hot wire and touched it to the wire for the starter motor.

honestly with where i am at and assuming the weather doesnt change drastically id be pretty ok with not carrying water. with in two miles i can think of 6-8 ponds and 4 miles or so away is lake ontario, one of the largest bodies of fresh water. if i walk idk 10 miles west i come across one of he larger rivers in the US. south 10 miles is the erie canal which runs something like 200 miles east to the hudson. this isnt even including all the creeks we have criss crossing the town.

its honestly to cold up here in the winter to try and stay so id be going some where as quickly as possible. havving lakes and rivers helps.
