I'll just take my Power Wagon filled with my gear and supplies,along with my 4 wheeler,and head to my hiding spot.
There's plenty of game,water,fertile soil,and places to stay. Oh,and we have plenty of horses to get around on also.
Ill keep my mules, better in the high country than a horse, sure footed as hell an great on the pack sets, I use mules elk hunting an would never think about anything else. The cadaliac of the mountain.

Burros are pretty good if you can stand the annoying little cusses.

For you people that live in the burbs, get a good mountain bike. It will hold you and 100 lbs or up to 300 lbs if you walk it. Swiss Army uses bikes.

Nice truck!

For that EMP planning, better buy some extra condensers and tuck them away in a metal box. They can be zapped.

The Mtn. men back in the day used dogs. The only critters to navigate the High rugged Rocky Mts. was pack strings of dogs. Then of course dog meat was the fovorite fare of the Trappers.

I use it for fishing with a12' tinnie tied to the back or use it for spotlighting or for getting to some tough places to hunt or for just 4wding. It has 2x 90 litre tanks.
It's no speed demon but it'll sit on 100kph(60mph) all day and it'll tow my camper trailer no worries at all.
Best vehicle so far IMO..
I especially like the Diesel and the 2x 90L tanks!
