or at least, stuff in a rental storage, close to your BOL, with empty drums buried in the woods nearby, so you can transfer the food and gear to them, the first night of shtf Not that big a deal, really, given a bike with the front wheel lashed in alignment with the frame. lash the bucket of goodies to the bike and walk along side of it. It leaves tracks, so do the last 50m (to each drum) just carrying the buckets. You dont want the drums within sight of each other. Buried food, prior to shtf, is problematic, risking animals digging at it and people noticing same. It's guaranteed that they will steal it, if they do notice it. In bear country, securing them adequately is a huge pita and they have to be buried and accessed at night, etc. If they are empty, there's nothing to attract animals and no reason for anyone to care about them, either. Once shtf, some snares will deal with the animals, until they've all been killed and eaten, by dogs and people. That wont take long, a month or so dont try to go far, if shtf. Arrange for a dugout, very small, in the woods near your local water source. A sack of nails and some split 1" sticks will stop all the 4 wheeled traffic. The flattened tires will mean that you wont go far and you'll be getting shot up as you do. The piled up cars will stop all other traffic, ya see. People who know how to ambush vehicles wont set up where you can see this coming, or where anyone can just drive around the road-block. bugging in wont work. Dogs will smell your food and water, hang around, and people will notice. They'll also notice that you're not skeletal. The cities and towns will burn, due to there being no pumps working (no power) and that means no water in the pipes. Garbage will pile up, meaning diseases. 10% of the population will be dead within a month of the power's going off. Lots of dead humans being eaten by starving dog packs. They will soon consider humans as being food, and attack living people, too. It's happened before. Every "findable" building will be searched, repeatedly, by armed, desperate people. If you "think" people will watch their kids starve before killing you, you are in for a horrific shock, right before you expire.
