Everybody heading for the hills when SHTF??
I've been watching those doomsday prepper shows in National Geographic and it seems everybody has a plan to head for the hills when everything collapses...and most of the ones being profiled on that show are armed to the teeth. If a SHTF situation really does happen, wouldn't that make the back country a pretty dangerous place to be?? A lot of these people appear to have a place staked out and if you get to close, they plan to put a bullet(s) in you. Don't think they have even considered people hiking with their kids and just happening on them or whatever. All they seem to have on their minds is stocking up on their stuff and taking out anybody who gets too close...and then running around and killing every animal they see.
A lot of this prepping stuff doesn't make sense. I'm beginning to wonder if it's just a ploy to get people to spend a lot of money on stuff they'll just have to throw out in 15 years.
Everybody is not a savage. If things really do get bad, lots of people will still help out their neighbors and communities and find a way to keep things going the best they can...bartering or whatever. I don't think everybody is just going to grab a backpack and abandon their homes and head for the mountains. If they do, it won't take very long to use up what natural resources we do have left and then everybody will be screwed.
What am I missing in all this?? other than that Wise food storage company is experiencing a boom in sales right now.

Somebody help me make sense of all this.

I understand you need to be prepared in case of an emergency..hurricane, snowstorm, earthquake...but this hoarding up for years and years worth of stuff...are people just throwing money out the window out of created fear?? I mean 75 years ago, most everybody had a garden and a few chickens and maybe a cow or 2. they went to the bathroom in an outhouse. got their water from a well. and they were all fine. They didn't have 10 years worth of grain and rice in big expensive mylar-lined buckets and they managed to survive just fine. I have to be missing something here...yet every time I watch one of those shows, Youtube videos, or come to this site, I start to feel panicked that I'm not ready for "something" that I should be ready for.

Re: Everybody heading for the hills when SHTF??
Excuse me.
We here in the mountains do NOT have a welcome mat out.

We do without many conveniences, and endure many
hardships to live in the wilderness.
For example,
the nearest hospital to us is forty miles away,
the nearest cop is also that far.
We don't have and never will have a cell phone signal.
The nearest grocery store is about 25 miles away.
There is a lot we do without, in order to be as far
away from YOU PEOPLE as we can get.

Now YOU in contrast have every convenience at your
fingertips. You would be absolutely disgusted and
revolted to live as we do, with our guns and all.

BUT

If TSHTF, you expect to come rolling up the mountains
and expect us to share our food and water and shelter
with you?

that was a GREAT book, and the author is a pretty intelligent guy and after reading it, I think it is fairly realistic and logical. There were a few things I thought were maybe inaccurate, like how well the protagonist's community held together. And the fact the convenience store was still selling shit and the owner hadn't shut down and hoarded what he had left.

You city folk would have a hard time adjusting to mountain life. In the winter it is colder and much wetter. Us mountain folk are used to it, and we know the woods like the back of our hand. Plus we are in tune with the animal population and know what to expect. It would be a harsh learning curve for those used to creature comforts and probably fatal to most who are not prepared.
