    The true survivalist looks on the proclaimed "I'm Prepared" as storage centers. [​IMG]

    "Are you prepared?" isn't a question, it's a kōan.

    Something that I tried to figure out earlier, at what point do people stop being convenient stores of goods and start becoming allies? Or is it just a free for all?

    You know the sound of two hands clapping; what is the sound of one?

    When those who want to proclaim where and how they have stores of food, water, etc., those who are more aggressive in nature now know where to go to find what they need. One should never proclaim where your stores are. It is all well and good to be prepared, and what someone should include in such a "store," but a mobilized group of people could very well use the information.

    And, the fact that it would be very hard to defend off a hostile group bent on taking what they need from your stores, it would be best not to provide this information to everyone.

    That is where allies will become important, people will need to band together to form small groups of allies with others that have various skills that could benefit the allied group, such as biologist to help grow food and purify water, hunters to help secure animal goods, mechanics to help build tools and modes of transportation, medical personnel for the sick and injured, metal workers to help with building materials, former military/militant organizers to help lead and defend the allies, etc.
