    I like the vehicle above, but a horse uses less fuel.

    A paint horse will do for me. A paint can live on gallberry bushes. Once you get where you are going set the woods on fire to fatten the horse up again.

    Out of the 3 you have listed, the Toyota.
    Diesel will keep longer than gas and a diesel will use less fuel. There is a better chance of finding diesel than gas when everyone else is trying to find gas. Volkswagon makes a diesel 4x4. Other than that a 3/4 ton 4x4 PU with a diesel engine. A diesel will also run on vegetable oil.

    With the collapse of society as we know it, where are you going to be driving to? The 7-11 will be out of beer and cigarettes. Besides all that an automobile is a BFT, and nearly impossible to defend. Go with the horse, you won't be sorry.

    I have to ask...
    Are you under the impression that other horses cannot?

    I think a Subaru outback would be great. Good on gas, and can take skunk gas.

    No one mode of transport- as there are different needs in different settings. It could be a pickup, a 4x4 gator or ATV, dirt bike, bicycle, horse, mule, GOOD pair of boots- or a boat, ultralite- or knowing how to hobo and hop a train (think THAT takes no knowledge- tell me what a peddler freight is)

    Me? Funny thing happened when the local National Guard unit was trading their aircraft for new Apaches.......
