There is one thing we cannot deny about the vehicles, they are force multipliers in the survival game. If you can move faster than those around you its a big deal. A vehicle can allow you to bugout faster. It can also push you through resource gathering in a way that people on foot will not be able to.
There are some things to consider with all of this and we are going to look at what you should have and how to comprise a serious survival vehicle that excels in the fallen world.
What are you trying to do with this vehicle? Are you looking to traverse a wide variety of terrains with this vehicle? You can design tires and struts to do whatever you need them to. Remember this vehicle can be a four-wheeler or even a bike.
What kind of fuel do you want this vehicle to run on? DO you want to be dependent on gas or diesel? Don’t forget you can make your own diesel. Maybe you want that vehicle to run on something else.
You have plenty of options when it comes to fuel.
What size vehicle are you looking for? Can this be a vehicle that carries a single person and resources or do you need a vehicle that carries an entire family and multiple bags and resources? These are important questions to answer.
The reality of creating a survival vehicle is that you can do almost anything you want with vehicle modifications but you have to have a gameplan. You need a path to follow. Sit down and consider what types of things you want to do with your vehicle long before you start lamenting about not being able to build or buy it.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
