When there is no Law

When there is no Law
If one chooses to bug out for reason other then natural disasters (economy collapses, martial law, civil disorder etc...) you will become a target due to the equipment you carry, in the beginning it will be one on one then in groups, highwayman on every well traveled road and path, you may have your family with you (wife kids etc..) your response and speed is weaken by this fact. If you can stay home (fortified structure Vs open field) stay home, I may be well adapted to fighting in the jungle and forested areas but my wife is not, I need to move fast and hard with no rest, when my mind is on her safety and well-being I am compromised in my ability to defend and strike.

I have seen the worst of humanity in Africa and South America when social structure ends, if things get that bad here, ain't no differences, we see it in the big cities now though on a much smaller scale, bug out should be the very last resort.

If you have to bug out, plan your routs that keeps you off well traveled areas and move by night, darkness is your friend, use it but use it wisely, always plan that the enemy are just as capable as you with better resources, use the terrain never take the high or low ground (wit, alert, stealth, blending in, terrain advantage) trust no one unaffiliated with your party.

RE: When there is no Law
Take a look at Haiti (make Haiti a case study) this is a good example what can follow here, in America we ain't immune from such violence, Watts Riots in 65 and the rodney king riots in 92 and amplify that across America not to mention the lawless from Andrew in 92 and Katrina in 05

RE: When there is no Law
I was thinking about disguising myself with a shopping cart and odd scrap on the outside, to look homeless. At least until I can get to the bush.

The Iga-Mono Ninja would take on similar disguises, maybe walking hunched over with a limp and a cane. Might make you look like easy-pickings, but might also make you look like a non-threat of little worth to others.

Good thread.

Even the homeless would be targets, having just the cloths you have on you may be able to get away with it but having a cart gives the appearance of having something useful Undecided also a good number will know if your new to an area or not, outsiders will be watched and targeted.

Maybe if you have a corpse in the cart? People generally want nothing to do with smelly death.
