claiming you are no safer from being noticed, if you avoid being out in daylight, is just retarded. Sure, in a year or so, you'll have to come out and forage, grow sprouts and the like, but only 1% are going to make it that far, meaning you'll be many times safer if you can stall it that long. and setting up to do so is easy and cheap. Just "assuming" you'll be in the 1%, when you are retarded enough to be out in daylight for that first year of shtf,, is just the height of stupidity.

Who says that you are going to be that 1%? What are you going to do when your government supplied meds give out?

Who said anything about "affording" there's going to be a bunch of stuff out there looted from stores, warehouses plus the military; if it does get as bad as some claim.

And that's not the point. The point is some people will have the brains to use cover even after dark and some won't.

Of course now if someone is running a good thermal unit that's a different story.

Is your "spider hole" going to be big enough for 12 months worth of food?

dumbass, you don't WANT your food in your hideout. you dont even want to eat there. The scent draws the dogs. I have said many times that nearly all the food belongs in your storage unit, as close as possible to your BOL, in 35 gallon drums with 5 gallon buckets and doubled Mylar bags inside, along with a bike with a front wheel locked in alignment with the frame, and a shoulder yoke for carrying the buckets. Buried in the nearest woods, should be empty 55 gallon drums, so you can just unearth one, remove the top, drop the 35 gallon drum into it, cover it again. Repeat as necessary. 200m or so from your dugout, have a couple of empty 5 gallon buckets. As needed, go fill them from the 35 gallon drums.

your inability to THINK does not constitute a problem for my setup, dummy

right, everyone has thermal sights, always looks thru it, even as they walk, :) everyone DOES have eyes, dummies. Nighttime movement, in and of itself, is at least 10x safer than daylight movment . 1000s of rounds miss each man, even IN daylight. at night, merely dropping prone is highly likely to provide concealment, enough, at least, to let you get to real cover. Adequately protective movement is extremely tiring, slow and makes you prone to injury, cause you're dodging, changing your speed of movement, going prone a lot.

the fact that SOME will have something does not = YOU having it. In fact, it probably = you getting shot with it.

Melvin, the fact that you can't physically manipulate large objects makes your comments suspect. A 63 year old with back problems would not choose a 55 gallon drum. In a previous post you also mentioned how "wifey" didn't like digging holes also.

You can get reasonable thermal scopes for between $1K and $10K - I see them at the range fairly often. That's just one range. There's probably several thousand in the hands of hunters in AZ alone. Then throw all the serious hog hunters into the mix from places like Texas, Oklahoma, etc.., and there's a shit-ton of night vision and thermals running around out there. You're a complete fool if you don't understand this.

You also don't understand the rounds expended in combat argument - that will also get you killed.

If you weld the front tire into alignment with the back tire, do you pick up the bike to adjust direction every time you need to go somewhere other than in a straight line?

one of those things he's thought about, but never tried doing in the field under any realistic conditions. there are better solutions to this approach, and if he'd try it, he'd probably figure them out. If he doesn't already have this contraption made, he will never have it. if SHTF, he won't have the luxury of cobbling it together and welding it - or is he taking a welder in his amazing pack?

...along with a bike with a front wheel locked in alignment with the frame...
Agan, seriously asking how does one navigate efficiently with a bike whose front wheel is prevented from turning left or right?
