horde hype 3


HORDE HYPE 3

It is not just urban cores that are jam packed butt hole to elbow with teeming asshattery.  All of suburbia is, wherein every single swinging dingus with two extra dollars to rub together has fled above said asshattery.  The suburbs can stretch quite the ways.  Here in Nevada almost every road anywhere in the vicinity of a city is packed with two acre ranchettes from that city to every small town within an hours drive, and sometimes much further.  Because of almost complete lack of ground water, or all that many decent reservoirs, any drop of surface water is completely shaded by hovering masses perched within driving distance of it.  Even discounting Las Vegas, the whole state is dangerously overpopulated for its meager water resources.  I imagine Arizona is far worse.  But here is my point.  If most of the roads are the suburbs, and suburbs stretch everywhere, the city cores are certainly not the issue you need to worry yourself about.  It is all the areas surrounding the cities, and because these drivers are by nature commuters they will all have cars and their tanks with some fuel.  And the natural inclination is to flee to the mountains.  And who will stop all these from fleeing?  The criminal groups are back in the core ( where there is no need for cars ).  And the horde fleeing towards you don’t even need to be armed.  Just their numbers alone are going to be trouble.

Here you are, a survivalist on land in the country, with neighbors you’ve befriended and formed partnerships with to join together after a collapse ( for anyone ever living in the country recently, I think we can all agree that there are plenty of salt of the earth types around you, but also plenty of petty angry dick bags as neighbors who aren’t worth the piss they can’t figure how to pour out of a boot.  Any neighbor is 50/50 just as liable to be worthless as worth a hoot.  Also, I have my doubts that any of your neighbors are true survivalists.  They will have gardens, and guns, but won’t be truly ready to survive past about the thirty days that the next grocery store trip was set to be.  And their ammunition supply most likely is in the few boxes rather than by the case.  I also see very little help from relations and friends “the next valley over”.  You might not get shot while temporarily fleeing there as marauding hordes attack, if that were an issue, but there won’t be the resources or accommodations for you there ), and you think you are safe.  And you were.  No armed groups of notes bother you.  Not in the post-apocalypse fiction sense of the word where scum of the earth roam the wastelands with the last of the gas searching for nubile females and caches of carbine ammo.  Instead what you get is a constant flood of flatlanders fleeing the suburbs.  Plus relatives of all your neighbors.  Plus visitors from every small town or suburb near you that had well water rather than ground water.  Plus every location near you that has no agriculture, or a wood source for winter fuel.  It may not be all that much percentage wise of those that could have left, but since the population has increased so much, and every location but a few exceptions such as the artic Nebraska plains has more people settling along most commuter arteries, there are still enough people arriving peacefully that they present an issue.

  1. That's where being way out in snow country can be an advantage. Pantries tend to be large as getting snowed in is no joke. Roads are bad at the best of times. One snowstorm with no plow removal and you are isolated until late spring. No water shortage either. I can heat my house with sustainably harvesting firewood using hand tools. All within walking distance. Done it.

    I've heard of folks in my area who are willing and have the skills and equipment to blow the bridges.

    Of course, right now I'm stuck in the middle of FL taking care of my dying father. If something big happened it'd get interesting here real quick.

    1. I look back in wonder what a dumbass I was for living in Daytona for five years.

    You raise a good point James, and I've witnessed this in my now semi-rural area. Over the past few decades now, there seems to have been a new emergence of people pouring in from the cities that exhibit no traits of hardiness, and have brought many of the big city ways with them. They probably read a few issues of Permies or Mother Earth News, and in their minds pictured some back to the land hippy utopian fantasy. As a result, the political tide has since changed, and just the overall atmosphere in general. Even the fraternal order of butt pirates (The real name escapes me?) felt comfortable enough to host one of their “sausagefests” up here.

    One thing that I have noticed though, is that these “neo-country” folk will never relocate too far away from the larger metropolitan areas, in an attempt to keep “one toe in the big city”. This is one of the primary reasons that here in California, you have to go pretty far outside of the cities to find anything that is even remotely affordable, and even then it really isn't for many of us.
    In my case, I had to go about 7 hours north to Modoc, and at that point Elko county was about the same, and with far less regulations, so I bought there instead.

    1. I like "the fraternal order of butt pirates". What else is better? Perhaps Pillow Biters. Ass Monkey's is taken by your boss.

    2. “Ass Monkey's is taken by your boss.”

      Boy, you got that right James. I think that the happiest day of my life was when that idiot laid me off, so that I didn't have to listen to any more of his stupidity.

      This is a guy (I shat you not) that actually argued with a straight face that illegal immigration wasn't costing us a penny, because when they come here they all pay their taxes, for what choice would they have? Yep, educated in one of America's finest politically correct bastions of higher learning where everything but common sense prevails as you may have already guessed?

    3. Next week I'm covering How To Keep Working For Complete Asshats ( not the title, just the description )

    4. Okay, I need next weeks articles now.
      I know I am about useless since I mostly just push paper (electrons) and attend meetings about pushing paper, and am good enough at it that I just supervise the computer doing it most of the time.
      But since I don't give the appearance of working myself to an early grave people / the boss thinks I am lazier than the hyper squirrel co-workers. Even though I constantly ask for more work.....

    5. I'll be honest, it is nothing new or earth shattering. Same old crap, but more ranting on stupidity. God, I hope I'm not turning into my nemesis' writing style of empty blathering.

  3. You're featured at the top of Ol' Remus's Woodpile Report for October 23rd. Good job, James.

  4. Neighbors.........


    Everything you need to know about neighbors was covered by the Twilight Zone 'The Shelter'

    Best to cache the majority of your supplies and be able to evacuate your home on a moment's notice. Not to bug out to someplace else but to live remotely as a satellite around your homestead. Similar to what Roman and his wife did in 'A Distant Eden'. When the various waves of refugees have washed over your area, time to come out and create a small, defensible village.

    It's all about luck. But the more you prepare, the luckier you become.

I must moderate-trust me. You don't want to see what happens otherwise. Sometimes it takes awhile to respond as I only check two or three times a day. No N-Bombs, nothing to get me libeled. Otherwise, have at it. If you criticize me, make sure to praise my hair first.
