I was recently contacted by loyal reader AP. AP brought up the fact that his group meets a few times per year and develops guidelines as to what needs to occur to cause his group to drop everything and head to the groups site. Interesting.
This is a popular subject in many survival & preparedness forums. What qualifies as a SHTF event is one of the main items of discussion in these forums and in my opinion very difficult to answer. There are certainly events that are obviously so cataclysmic that they almost go without saying – such as an asteroid impact, massive solar flare, and of course the ever present threat of evil alien invasion.
What is considered a SHTF or bugout/hunker-down trigger is no doubt highly personal. The area one lives can have a great impact in determining what a “trigger” point is. Live near a nuclear power station? How about a nuclear target? Down wind from a large chemical plant? These are questions that need to be answered when asking – “For you – what is your trigger point?”.
Well – I am asking and would like to hear from you.
What do you consider your “trigger point”? For you….How will you know TSHTF?
