Hmmm sounds nice, but a 2500 mile bug out sounds rather iffy at best for moi. I'm concerned just making it 250 miles up north once the walls come down and the horde flee's Detroit.


I know how you feel, I'm stuck way the fuck out on the eastern seaboard. Maybe we could have an east coast rally point a few months ahead of time and then trek to the meetup?

Also, a list of people to collect along the way (airport names will do) after all a jumbo jet can't be any more difficult than a cesna can it?

Grai, would you mind too terribly much making a few stops at some yet to be determined locations to pick up us east coasters and centerans?


I've been recreationally planning for the apocalypse for years now. I'm doing a very wet dry run over the next few days. I'll let you all know any tips and tricks Sandy teaches me.

The world will end with skaterboys.

http://www.cfr.org/society-and-culture/ ... cts/p13093

The expansive case was described as youth bulge by Gary Fuller (1995). Gunnar Heinsohn (2003) argues that an excess in especially young adult male population predictably leads to social unrest, war and terrorism, as the "third and fourth sons" that find no prestigious positions in their existing societies rationalize their impetus to compete by religion or political ideology.

Heinsohn claims that most historical periods of social unrest lacking external triggers (such as rapid climatic changes or other catastrophic changes of the environment) and most genocides can be readily explained as a result of a built-up youth bulge, including European colonialism, 20th-century fascism, rise of Communism during the Cold War, and ongoing conflicts such as that in Darfur and terrorism. This factor has been also used to account for the Arab Spring events. Economic recessions, such as the Great Depression of the 1930s and the Late 2000's recession, are also claimed to be explained in part due to a large youth population who cannot find jobs. Youth bulge can be seen as one factor among many in explaining social unrest and uprisings in society.

Youth bulge theory represents one of the most recently developed theories of war and social unrest, and has become highly influential on U.S. foreign policy as two major U.S. proponents of the theory, political scientists Jack Goldstone and Gary Fuller, have acted as consultants to the U.S. government.

A large population of adolescents entering the labor force and electorate strains at the seams of the economy and polity, which were designed for smaller populations. This creates unemployment and alienation unless new opportunities are created quickly enough - in which case a 'demographic dividend' accrues because productive workers outweigh young and elderly dependants. Yet the 16-30 age range is associated with risk-taking, especially among males. In general, youth bulges in developing countries are associated with higher unemployment and, as a result, a heightened risk of violence and political instability. For Cincotta and Doces (2011), the transition to more mature age structures is almost a sine qua non for democratization.

There is a book on my bucket list from the U S Army.. It has a listing and pictures of eatable plants all over the earth.. A lot of what we see as weeds is food. Tried some lambs quarter.. It's pretty tasty greens.. So I kept a few dandelions over the summer. Trimmed them back a few time so they would grow larger and deeper and picks the seed heads off.. Now it's time to harvest and see how they taste..

Just picked up a vacuum sealed can of garden seeds today..

A friend gave me four big bags of acorn for the squirrels. I only have two oak trees. He has thirty.. He is recycling half of his leafs to my house to rot down to compost.. Squirrels in Or. are transplants from the east.. Still a damn rat in my book..

Doubt they'll go hungry.

You can always feed squirrels to the moggies.

you can't eat acorns direct........you have to leach the tannins out with boiling water, first.

Yeah, Ygmir, I got a batch going. Either hot water or cold water, each leaching method has its benefits.
The acorns I picked last weekend are not too bitter at all, varies from species to species.

Well, that's one way to leach the acorns; feed them to the squirrels and eat THEM.

BTW, you inspired me to finally grind up my acorns, leach and cook them. Delicious! As nutty as you can imagine, with the tiniest tannin aftertaste. I can imagine living on the fruits of the mighty oak as was done of old.

yeah, in school we did that, too.......not so bad at all.
I found, some years ago, a huge grinding "area" where many women must have sat and ground things........it is a huge flatish expanse of rock, overlooking what at times is a creek, and there are at least a dozen grinding holes.......and many have/had the grinding stones still sitting in them........I happened upon it, walking an area after a fire had burned the super dense brush in the area, which had probably kept this spot hidden for decades. Pretty cool spot.

As a general rule of thumb - white oaks are far less bitter than red oaks. And even if you are not a tree expert they are easy to tell apart by the leaves - white oak leaves have rounded lobes and red oak leaves have pointy lobes. The problem is trying to beat the deer to them as they zero in on white oak mast almost to the exclusion of everything else while it lasts.

A favorite wild plant of mine is sheep sorrel - it has a nice lemony taste. Has a distinctive spade shaped leaf and you often find it near clover plants.

I have found three stone tools right here on our property.. Two pistols and one mortar that matches one of the pistols.. These are hand held tools referred as nutters. They were used to grind enough for a days travel/hunting..

Well, I have been known to chip a few teeth intubating pt's (it was an auto fail in state testing if you clicked the manikins teeth while attempting to intubate) However, in real life, those that survived a cardiac arrest would probably give a rats ass to a few chipped teeth, or broken ribs for that matter.

Ygmir, if Grai can land at the local airport on the way, I'll hop aboard with my trust jump kit. Though I doubt my weaponry would be Cali legal though ;)

As I understand it, vast swathes of the California law are suspended in case of apocalypse...
I'm not sure of status of the weapon statutes in particular, however.

I'd say, in case of the apokalypse, "jungle" is the only law that will apply.
Now, for Roberto's idea, I'd say we find a football stadium........it'll be safe there. Let the cops do the looting.
