    Yeah, but when bellies get empty can we trust other members of our group not to kill and eat us?
    There are ample examples of cannibalism within groups in true exploration/survival stories.

    Anyway some people would actually PREFER being a Lone Wolf in a SHTF world, I like to think I'd be like that.
    Another reason for going it alone is that your food supply dramatically drops the more mouths there are in your group..

    You sound like a well rounded young lady. Just my opinion but if you opt not to carry a firearm or form a partnership with someone maybe consider getting a bigger, well trained dog for protection. But if the stuff really hits the fan you could expect the really bad guys to harm your dog too. So a firearm makes sense.

    i too have no where to go or people to go with but im pretty much ready with my bug out bag. i have two as i will enlist someone that want to live on my way out of town. as 1 is none and 2 is1 when it comes to emergencies. in my corner i am well trained and practiced with fire arms.
    I second these statements. If you go with any .22 LR, consider Aguila Supermax ammo . In a Rifle it has 204 foot lbs. of energy. This is the best .22lr ammo for self defense . About $40 for 500 rds. When you shoot it , compared to regular .22 ammo, you will really see and feel the difference.

    Nice to meet ya! Stick around the board, and plunder through the board. There are many ways to do the same thing, and there are a lot of smart people on this board with different ideas. Pick through, get the ideas that fit you.

    Here are a couple of musts, though, if the S slams into the F and it is chaos time.

    You MUST have a firearm. Period. People will be panicking, and bad people will be off the leash. Be ready for the threats. Live with the burden of a heavier load than die empty handed. I'd rather shoot someone in the face with a .22LR rife at 20 feet than hit them with a staff.

    Second point, get with good, like-minded people. Your chances of survival will go up, considerably. ATL is going to be a dangerous area, and there will be you and several HUNDRED thousands scrambling out of the city death trap. There is a reason why the army uses squads and platoons, so don't try and be a Lone Wolf McQuade. Take PrepperRecon and Leon's advice, and make sure you tag up with Leon; he has crazy-mad skills you definitely need to learn from him!

    Umm... for those wondering if you scared her off. Kim only posted twice (on 5 Sep)... and hasn't logged in again since 6 Sep... so it seems she dropped in and dropped out. Oh well... we seem to have a bunch of those that make the effort to join and post once or twice and then never come back. Sad... since this forum could be the one thing that makes a difference for them.

    There are none so blind as those who will not see.

    I hope she makes it, whatever she does.

    You have the right mindset. I would advise that you purchase at least 1 good handgun, as well as a rifle. Having a dog is great - protection, etc. My family and I have 3 large dogs and our bug out plan is very similar to yours. Head to the Appalachian mountains here in Virginia. Do you have any longer term plans in place? A bug out bag is a good start, but I think planning for 1-2 weeks. Do you have a tent? camping gear, etc? Pepper spray? Do you have 3 different ways to make a fire? A hunting rifle - .22 even would help you hunt for food. Along with your fishing gear this would improve your chances. Message me if you have any questions or comments. Good Luck.

    Female or not, being alone is not the way to go. You need to find someone else you can trust, male or female. You can't watch your back 24/7 and everyone needs to sleep. Hand defense is a last resort. A small handgun is a minimum be it a .22 or what ever. Unless your the exception, your not going to be GI Jane, don't waste the time trying, a few good friends are much better.
