What is the first thing you will do when you have no Internet and no electrical and it lasts for years.
Would you know how to survive? Most people don't, but I grew up surviving without any of the conveniences you all take for granted each and every day. I don't feel sorry for anyone who doesn't listen to my warning.

Trust me, there will be nobody coming to help you. They couldn't save Boulder, the entire Denver area is a wasteland in the time I come from, which is, your eventual futures. It's like that all over. You go on pretending, and the few who are prepared will survive.

 Quoting: Lester


We scattered into the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains for 17 years. There were occasionally other people we met, passers by and such. They shared any news they might have heard, and we shared our food and shelter. We lived off of the land and hunted most days. Storing our food in caves with snow that never melted if it wasn't in the sun. The hunting was sparse but enough to get us by along with our food stores. We had access to fresh water and water filtration. Lived in a cabin and chopped much firewood for our stove which heated the cabin and cooked our meals. You really have to age your firewood, at least 2 years. Most people think you can just cut it and burn it right away. I will admit I never had to start a fire, my father had a box of several hundred lighters and matches and flint and fuel. Basically anything we would ever need to start a fire, but sometimes simple kindling was hard to come by. We burned the pages of many books crumpled up to start fires. We hated burning books, so of course we ranked them most favorite to least favorite. Then we didn't feel quite so bad that it would be a book we would miss.

Seriously, it's not like the methods of producing electricity will cease to exist. It doesn't take a genius in electrical engineering to do this.

Used a lot of bark, gathered a lot of the nearby trees over the years, I would say everything in a 1 mile radius was fair game. There is never enough kindling though and pine needles and pine bark don't always cut it. Mostly pines in the area we lived.

If you are alive, you won't have time to bother with your generators. You will be too busy trying to find food and obtain a secure shelter and secure any ammo and guns you can.

Even if you had electricity about the most you could do that is useful would be to turn on some lights or if you had a well it could be hooked to an electric pump to obtain water. Once there is no government and no school and no internet, no gas, what will you do with your precious electricity really? Light up your house, that is about all its good for.
