Suburban and Rural Preppers, Your Thoughts on SHTF & City People?
I currently live in a modest sized city of ≈500K. One of my plans involves BO-ing beyond my metropolitan area (≈1M, total). I have some questions for the suburban and rural preppers here:
It goes without saying that I don’t expect any answers here to be definitive or even representative of subjective thoughts. I’m merely attempting to gain a baseline understanding of what might be encountered and how successful those encounters might be.
What are some thoughts/tips/advice you might have for preppers that are bugging out who simply want to pass through your town or village?
Knowing that an event just took place, how might you handle someone travelling by foot through your back property (perhaps at the far edge) who appears to just be passing through and is showing no signs of threat or interest?
If you and I met in your small community, what might be the best way to communicate to you that I have no interest in your, your supplies, or gear?
What might be the best way for me to maintain my ability to defend myself while not being threatening to you?
What is the best way, as a traveler passing through, to approach you and initiate a conversation about bartering?
Thanks in advance for all your input and advice. I look forward to it.
