I would...

1st. Fill any containers and bathtubs with water. Move my propane tank inside. Ration food. Get rid of the old man who rents a room in my place. Re-enforce my mobile home ala 'home alone'. Wait until most of the animal humans kill themselves off. Rig up a way to distill water to keep hydrated. Maybe go to the creek once and awhile for more water. Maybe try to tap the water from the water heaters from surrounding homes. Try to kill some kritters or scavenge food. After a couple of months make my way to the nearest river, and then to the ocean. Set up camp and survive.

Water would be the one thing I am concerned about... Heat is another...

I got sh!t load of canned food and some pills that make certain water safe to drink...But only enough for a few months...

The cold is what will kill me... Minnesota with no heat in January...

killyeah

I'll push my lil boat to the St. Croix river and then float down the Mississippi if it happened in the summer...Cheer

I used to live in Solon Springs. I have been in a canoe on the St. Croix many times. Unless the water table is up, you will have to portage in several areas. A small boat won't cut it over the rocky areas.

I can be a tough little cookie when I need to be..also a no fluff kind of girl. I can even make bread from scratch. chuckle

But...thank you sooo much for your generous offer! Heartflowers

bread is fun to make with a breadmaker. i've learned to just toss in ingredients without measuring. i really like to make sourdough bread, that is just a matter of letting the yeast and flour sit for a day before making it. yum!!

I have a bread maker and have never used it. My grandmother taught me to make pie dough when I was a kid and also let me play with dough. That morphed into making croissants, biscuits, etc. when I was 8 or so. THEN she told me that "cooking from scratch would become a lost art"..which sent me on a frenzied journey to learn that 'lost art'. chuckle

I love kneading dough and making bread. I had a wood stove in my basement and recently replaced it with one that has a cook top. It took several tries to get it right but now I bake it in the wood stove. And..the smell of it cooking is incredible!

It's SO good to know there are more homemade bread makers out there! Sourdough is is a favorite of mine, as well as my friends. Heartflowers

I know where that is Cheer

I'm way south, more by Stillwater.... from there to Prescot it is a very deep river...

I fish it it a lot... some places are over 100 ft deep .... like just south of the 94 bridge

Nice to talk to someone who lived in the area....Jhikpghf

Making bread is actually very simple. It's not a lost art. People are simply too lazy to devote the time it takes to do it.

i can only imagine baking bread on a wood stove. i would think it would validate a persons soul; the smells that is a 'comfort smell' like eating comfort foods. then you can eat some comfort food!!

i'd love to do that once in my life!! as a lifelong bachelor, i doubt that is in the cards for me Tissue

i guess a lot of nuke plants will melt down. the ptb would probably bomb each other to show they don't have 'small hands'.

the only way i've learned to avoid the problem is to stay inside for at least a month or two after the radiation leaks. definitely stay out of the rain!! i guess that fits with my plans. i've only got maybe another 20 years left so i don't care about cancer, but i need to avoid radiation sickness.

Stay put. Live next to a forest and springs. By design. Build a cinder block cooking stove outside. Hmph, based on memory from watching the videos... consult the few books I have around here for survival tactics, which are mostly herbal, and start picking and eating raw. Barter what is barterable in the new economy.

Not traveling, no way.

i'm guessing that areas around Windfarms will sprout large populations, between 1 and 20 thousand people.

I'm an electrical engineer and could harness the energy of the windmills.

The problem is that it will be 'lord of the flies' and western justice.

I'd rather make it on my own.
