Too many people think they have the answer to what will happen after SHTF and that thinking makes their plans suck. Does your plan really make sense?
I write an article like 60 bug out bag gear items you probably don't have or Almost unlimited power for your camping or bug out bag electronics and inevitably, some idiot pipes up with, "That's stupid. There won't be any electricity after SHTF" or after Just what is the ultimate bug out vehicle?, I kept hearing, "You have to have a pre-XX car or it won't work when SHTF.
Really? When did you get the script? I enjoyed reading One Second After as much as anyone because the author took great pains to think through what would happen to people if society collapsed but nothing says that the book is predicting THE future.
The fact is, you have absolutely NO idea what's going to happen in the next calamity that you will refer to as when SHTF. None. All you have is a lot of possibilities. Even if you're right, do you think there's only one bad thing that will happen to you in your life that you should plan for? What's worse is the people out there who boo-hoo other people's plans because they're so myopic that they can't consider any other possibility.
