Imagine if you will that the balloon has finally gone up and people are quickly scurrying around aimlessly with no major plan what so ever. The highways are rapidly being overloaded with potential travelers looking to relocate somewhere for a temporary stay until the dust clears and they feel it is safe to return to their homes. Police are rarely seen and public services are no where to be found. As one witnesses these events unfold we would have to wonder if anything could possibly get worse. I hate to do so but I am the bearer of bad tidings at this point and would like to bring you the worse case scenario.Survive a Natural Disaster

Since you are the person responsible for establishing your retreat it only seems logical that you should establish a few ground rules for any visitors that you may perhaps invite in during an emergency situation. Under normal circumstances a leader is usually chosen by age, experience in survival techniques and the supplies that they have accumulated. However this is not under normal conditions as this is your personal retreat. No one else has contributed towards its construction or its required maintenance. It is on your personal property and you and you alone have the final say so concerning it. Or do you? It is likely that you are not as young as you used to be. Age has been catching up to you and your reflexes are a bit on the slower side these days.Horse Power As Transportation

In either case it is important to have alternate plans to leave the area and get to your established retreat.
