Scavenging, horrible word. If scavenging becomes what you have to do, then thing have gotten really bad. I was reading an article on scavenging that listed the best places to look. Depending on your needs, the list they gave is okay: 9 Places to Scavenge After SHTF: 9 Places to Scavenge After SHTF - Ask a Prepper They say to stay away from obvious places but I would think that distribution and trucking centers would be a magnet. I agree that business parks and small offices would be a great place to collect needed items after collapse. Most offices have general first aid and pain relievers. They have water coolers, trash bags and even the cords on the blinds could come in handy. I was surprised that day cares, schools and retirement homes were not on the list. I think those places would be filled with items, foods and medications. Plus daycare would have diapers that could become a barter item if you didn’t need them. So where would you scavenge? And what do you think you would be scavenging? Needs, barter items ??
