    The out of shape guy living in fantasy land. Oblivious to the fact that you don't get to choose the day, hour, or place when evil comes your way. In the literal struggle for your life, there is no "time out" or recess.

    I always get a laugh at the overweight preppers & militia men on Youtube who couldn't walk three flights of stairs at a normal pace without being out of breath, and even one flight of stairs is taxing for them, but they pontificate on how to survive and execute special combat tactics. They're all gonna die ugly, no matter how big their groups and how many guns they have strapped.
    Don't crow too loudly. Age comes with material advantages and lessons learned:

     I can shoot farther than you can see. Being "in shape" isn't gonna help unless you can cover a mile in 10 seconds. 

    Me and my atv can go anywhere a man can walk. Not that I need it, I've worked construction 35 years now, farming before that, but it is a whole lot quicker out where I live. 

    Can you see at night? Can you keep from being seen at night? Some of us can. 

    Do you keep cash, gold, or silver in your bug out bag? Not everyone you meet is your enemy, or friend. I don't have a bug out, but a "bug back" bag to get back home, even on foot if I have to.

    My truck gun is a scoped 308 battle rifle. 

    How many armed and trained people in your home? 

    Just some food for thought.


    Pray the Holy Rosary.

    Look out, folks. We got another internet "bad ass" here.

    Your ATV will do you no good in an EMP event or an extended TEOTWAWKI where fuel runs dry.

    Looks like you'll need to rely on your own body to commute. In order to survive, you better be able to do it efficiently, with endurance, and be less prone to physical injuries when using your body. You need to be fit.

    One of the fundamental criteria for Special Ops is meeting high physical fitness standards and mental will. That's much of the base off of which everything else works. In a bona fide SHTF or TEOTWAWKI event, you'll be required to call upon such standards to survive WITHOUT all of your GI Joe goodies.

    Haha, I've never been called that one before.  Sorry if you took it wrong and got all triggered, I assure you that was not my intent. I'm only trying to show that men who are older (let's say 50+) are very capable despite being at a bodily disadvantage. If your trying to troll me, sorry for that too, the years have taught me not to give you that power.

    As for my pull start atv still with a carburator. Even if weaponized EMP existed there is nothing on my atv sensitive to it. Experience has taught me plenty, like how to smell balderdash. I've shielded plenty of things for our IT people and it is incredibly easy. Shielded/drain cable only an inch from a 10hp 3phase motor is sufficient. At less than 1 foot a 300 hp motor running FLA can't even interrupt my test equipment much less ruin it. It creates enough RF to down my drone at 30 feet but it doesn't ruin it and I can't imagine there are many things more sensitive than a little picture taking drone. How about fuel? That's not real hard to keep on hand dear.

    Next point; you say TEOTWAWKI but then claim I need to commute? Where am I going? 

    Your last item indicates that only Navy Seals will survive and if so, I will go to my Maker in the attempt because I am first a husband and father and it is my duty.
