ANOTHER BUG OUT BOOK

Retreat Will Be Vandalized

Vandals are not given much respect. They are usually portrayed as crack smoking long haired commies. Which might be true. But, still, why pick on just one tribe of Germanic peoples? Especially one whose decedents make a REALLY friggin delicious pancake called an abasceever ( no idea about the spelling, or even pronunciation really since I haven’t eaten one in thirty odd years. A ball shaped sweet light pancake ). All ancients and all moderns love to vandalize crap. Damn Romans, acting all uppity. Anyway, breaking stuff is not only good strategy ( ask Sherman, that Yankee hump ), it goes way back to the time we were picking nits out of each others hairy backs. Unlike today’s soldiers who are somehow convinced it is noble and grand to charge a machinegun nest and get your grieving parents a tin star medal to go along with your ashes, ancient dudes figured out it was a lot smarter to sneak up to your vine walled hut, peek through, then jab their spear through the vegetation into your sleeping body. That, or throw a torch on the roof and spear you as you ran naked, half asleep and weaponless out the door. Destroying crap was an easy way to vanquish your enemy and emerge triumphant and uninjured. And steal his women.

The modern urge to win over a guys girlfriend, or to slash his tires when it is your ho he steals, is rooted in our past. You need to recognize rather than try to deny reality. Dumbasses ( especially those who have college degrees ) are all confused. Why can’t we all just get along? Why must we fight wars if we are so enlightened now? Come the collapse, these Progressive do-gooders are going to make fine stewpot fodder or sex slaves ( or just slaves to be sold ). Might is right. That doesn’t mean only the wicked and strong survive, it means peace through superior firepower. The Wild West with every swinging dingus armed was far more peaceful than a modern day mega-cities where nobody is. And if you think primitive hard wired behavior is going to yield to “property rights” or “respecting my property” you are a dumbass. You can only trust your tribe, and that doesn’t include neighbors near your retreat. Not NOW. Perhaps later, but right now we don’t belong to tribes on a life-giving basis ( at most, a hobby basis ) because the nation state has usurped that role with force.

*

Belonging to a tribe ensures survival, in a non-modern society. You don’t have to like everyone in there, but they will protect and provide for you, and you them, as a matter of mutual security. All others, ALL outsiders which don’t belong to the tribe, are to be preyed on. This ensures species survival in a resource scarce time. Now, we may not have any positive tribal affiliations anymore, thanks to big daddy government, but we do still carry the negative ones. Nowadays we prey on everyone because we view no one as part of our tribe ( this would not be the case if we had other neo-tribes to exploit, known as nations, but we are an empire in decline and have turned on each other in our own nation to keep winning as much declining resources as possible-again, a species survival trait so don’t be confused why nobody loves you and why they are indeed all out to get you ). We can’t kill others and steal their brides of child bearing years, that is not allowed as the nation monopolizes force, but we can and do amuse ourselves with the next best thing. Destroying others processions.

*

Even before folks need your retreat supplies, they will steal or destroy them just for the fun of it. A thrill hardwired in our brains that signify victory over an enemy tribe. Look, Ug, Me Biggum Warrior, me steal round stone. Throw that crap away, damn thing weighs a ton and ain’t good for nothing ( Ug may have been articulate but he didn‘t think far enough ahead to monopolize the wheel ). You may think that an above ground concrete bunker with Swiss engineered blast door entrance is just the ticket for the Apocalypse, but I’d wager there are enough locals nearby who have way more time on their hands than you do- as an absentee owner- and will eventually tear the crap out of the place. Just for fun. Keep that in mind before you build ( also keep this in mind if you ever have a brain wet-fart and actually ignore the fact that almost every train accident is always on Amtrak and go for a ride with them. It doesn’t take a whole lot more than removing giant nails to derail one of those bastards ).

*

Don’t buy into the myth of violent youth terrorizing you AFTER the Apocalypse while thinking they will remain inactive BEFORE then. The violence will just be a different variety. Thinking everyone is a douche-bag is not going to make finding friends easy, but it will allow better prepping prior to SHTF. Always assume the worst. Paranoia is your friend for the die-off.

  1. I just got back to my house in rural NH after being away for 6 months. Nobody bothered it. I've been closing it down in the winter time for over a dozen years. The worse thing anyone did was to steal some fishing tackle out of an unlocked shed.

    Maybe I'm lucky. Maybe folks watch out for each other. Maybe it's too darn remote, cold and snow covered.

    It has been my observation that vandalism is worse in other parts of the country.

    1. Please don't disprove brilliant theories I pull out of my ass with concrete examples to the contrary :)

    2. Actually, small property crimes fall in the winter time. Plus, odds tell us that every year you don't have a problem increases the chance that you will.

    Great article James, and excellent points.

    The old saying, "An armed society is a polite society" is not without merit.

  4. The vandals/thieves here can strip a vehicle or tractor overnight. I hear they get everything but the VIN numbers. Kids steal wheel covers off cars and sell them on ebay that night. This is so they can buy expensive sneakers what would they do when the SNAP card don't work? And I live in a rural area, not the boonies but a long way from anything urban. Good luck keeping them out of anything other than a guarded building and maybe not even then.

  5. Any plan can get screwed up one way or another, but... this is why having a basic set of supplies hidden (e.g., buried) in a remote bug-out type location is a good idea. Of course, the supplies could somehow get discovered, and you may not make it to your bug-out place, blah, blah, blah. But.. leaving everything out in the open for anyone to see and be tempted by is a big mistake. Plus, a lot of things keep better buried as it affords some temparature control (e.g., wheat).

  6. A crime happened yesterday, a crime happened today, a crime will happen tomorrow.
    Not intending to rain on Sixbears' parade but a guy I know who had a small hunting lodge had to give it up because it was broken into and looted every time he locked the door and walked away. Location and circumstances.

  7. I wish I was at one of those rare locations pre-crackheads where petty/property crime didn't occur. Luck of the draw.
