The art of survival

Look what The Independent has just published:

The art of survival: Essential skills for the post-apocalyptic world

Recession. Food shortages. Natural disasters. Terrorism. What would happen to us if some cataclysmic event caused society to break down?

Survival language:
WTSHTF is short for When The Shit Hits The Fan. And, as disastrous as that may sound, it's not nearly as bad as EOTWAWKI – The End Of The World As We Know It.

Bugging out is slang for leaving your home to go somewhere safe. To do so, you'll want a bug-out bag (or BOB) full of survival supplies for the road; a bug-out vehicle (or BOV), to get you out of the impact zone and through traffic as quickly as possible; and a bug-out location (or BOL ) stocked with enough provisions to get you through whatever crisis is occurring.

So, in short, WTSHTF, you're going to want a BOB to put in your BOV to go to your BOL – where you'll pray it isn't the EOTWAWKI.

OK, so maybe a little over the top and American - but if society were to collapse, particularly in a geographically small country like England, do we really believe that roving hungry gangs from the city are going to leave you in peace to grow vegetables and weave? Or are people with a predisposition to violence going to have a field day taking everything you've got? I think you know the answer.
