The Road vs. Walking Dead....

I was reading the one thread about running naked in the streets and eating your brother's pets and it got me thinking. If something bad did happen...bad to the degree that you had to rely on your prepper skills, would a prepper group work or would your prepper pals show up to take your well planned spoils? Would you be better off working as a group or working independently with just your immediate family?

I just see some serious issues with people knowing what you have and what your capabilities are.

I would much rather survive by myself. Groups can be bad and you can't control other peoples actions that might make you visible or give your homestead away.

If I am by myself I have nobody else to blame for anything so what ever happens is because of ME bad or good Big Grin.

There are certainly valid reasons for NOT wanting to be part of a group, particular a large one. However, flying solo is fraught with its own problems, such as, NO ONE can stay awake for ever, you have to sleep sooner or later, who is going to post watch while you snooze ? What if you get injured ? Whose going to watch your cache while your foraging for food or supplies ? What if you find yourself seriously outnumbered ? Bet you (or anyone else) would be wishing for some backup then. Just sayin........

If you buddy up, it better be equally beneficial for all.

Small group preferably for me. Worked out well in the novel Patriots. Everyone brought their own shit and contributed with their skills.

I wouldnt want to be in the Man's position in The Road.

Have you read "One Second After"? In that book the entire town comes together (at least for the most part).
We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. - Patrick Henry

Personally, i say alone (with significant other, etc).

A group is good for sharing ideas and such BEFORE the SHTF to me.

You have very very good points too. But I don't want to be around any remote towns when SHTF. I want to be able to drive my K5 into the middle of the woods where no one can see me and set up shop. And be peaceful. When I start getting low on supplies I will lock and load and recon on a full moon night.

No need for someone to keep post for you if you're sleeping in a tree Big Grin

TongueI think I'd rather be in a group. I actually have been training with a group. Now I'm out of the group Tongue.
When working with the group we practiced manuevers as a team and trained as a team.
So I'm going to say teamwork .

Small group of capable friends. If your alone I think your a little more vulnerable.
