For me it would be situational...if they could pull their weight and contribute yes, but if they are dead weight I am not going to baby.

 Quoting: Relativity


Yes, you will need others to spread out the security watch, and also to haul/chop wood/ water/animals etc. Your comfort and chances of survival increase as you add the RIGHT people.. They could have needed skills or not as there will be plenty of unskilled labor to be performed around camp.

I would also include their close family (wives, children, grandparents) as it would boost espre de corps and give them much more more skin in the game for protecting and improving the camp.

And as a last resort, to enforce loyalty, people are not going to fuck around when their loved ones would be exposed.

If you save just yourself.. whats the point???rockon

Absolutely agree EV

Historically, it is the tribe-sized group(s) that survive and are prosperous. It is essential that there is help when needed, and support when necessary.

Our position is: "What tangible good or usable skill sets do you bring to the table?" While bringing both would be great, there must be at least one or the other.

That being said; just because you're a doctor bringing useful medical skill sets, that doesn't mean you sit around on your backside until someone needs a band-aid. EVERYONE must contribute on a daily scale in order to prosperity begin to take root.

I stock for my neighbors, all of them, figure 30+ people & food for a month for each, not counting my personal stash. I can’t hold the neighborhood alone after all.


I also talk to every one of my neighbors every quarter at least if not more, see how they are and their mentality. You don’t want to find out someone flipped their lid and it is a surprise if something bad happens.

Well yes, but I expect grown up sons to return home along with their kids to the parents homes.

No one is getting in my house either way though, kinda why I make sure I can stock them where they sit currently.

The last thing I can afford is empty houses next to me in a SHTF situation.

People migrating? Not through our area and that is why I would need help...

Just make sure its mutually profitable.. otherwise your "slaves" will eventually revolt and kill their new master.

For myself, I would plan something close to "Jericho" with able bodied men being auto-enlisted in the ranger patrol, women and children at home working the ground. Sorry no women on ranger patrol, to much risk of kidnap and rape, sorry I don't want that fate for our women.. I would however be sure that EVERY member be trained in basic security and issued weapons as we capture them from the attacking forces.

Daily work would be focused on food production, water sourcing and security. Later as we gathered enough trustworthy survivors and equipment; I would begin to expand to other locations in the area, rendering whatever aid we could to the locals, establishing lines of communication and trade and eliminating despots, thugs, crime lords and other assorted dipshits that make life unbearable for the locals along the way as we encounter them.

Build respect and genuine goodwill (through direct action, not promises) among the surrounding population and you will expand your sphere of influence and intelligence network rapidly.

Also of note: This would not be a democracy, I would take command until someone else comes along who can demonstrably do a better job, then they have command; I will keep a watchful eye and frag them the moment they turn away from whats best for the group... I reserve that unspoken right.
