    Default SHTF Scenario- The First 24 Hours

    Thanks to what's currently on my TV, History Channel's After Armageddon;
    What would the first 24 hours be like in a real SHTF (Shit Hits The Fan) Scenario?




    How would you communicate with your loved ones? Spouse? Children? Assuming you haven't been stocking properly, what about food? What if you are low on gasoline yourself? No power?

    I'm trying to get some ideas on how to cope with the first 24 hours or so of a SHTF scenario. How long before looters show up? How soon to secure your house and belongings? Do you attempt to forge through your town to get supplies and loved ones?

    I'd wait it out in my Y2K shelter.

    Well, every Californian, and anyone who lives in an area where Tornadoes strike should have a disaster plan.


    First off, I have enough water in my truck for myself for two days.

    I always keep a half-tank of gas at all times, this gives me about a 400 mile range if I need to evac.

    We have a place that we will all meet within a certian alotted time, then a secondary place if we are forced to evac.

    I know four different ways to get home.

    I am kinda screwed if I am stuck on the peninsula because there is only one highway in and out. If that is destroyed or damaged then I camp out here in a shelter.

    I have extrs batteries and a basic am/fm radio in my truck and at home.

    I'll probably get my throat slit by someone I trust and offer help to.

    I would make some popcorn and grab an ice cold drink kick back and laugh at all the idiots stuck in traffic.

    Emergency - This Book Will Save Your Life is an interesting read that covers some of this. To be clear, it probably wouldn't save your life, but it is an interesting book.

    Always have a "bug out" bag and the likes. Or like we say at the casa, it's time to Alamo. Have your shit at the ready and know the game plan. Out.
