Do you know where are the most appropriate places you can to reach, and possibly live there for a while, in case any major cataclysm occurs.
As you may already know, even if something really small happens (compared to a major cataclysm that is), like for example the internet shutting down or maybe a loss of electricity, and it finds you in the city, then you need to get out of there asap, because things could escalate extremely fast.
So, without further ado, let’s get into it.
In my opinion caves are one of the best spots you can go to in case of a cataclysm.
They provide good shelter, they have been here for thousands of years, and have withstood the test of time.
They’ll probably be here long after humans will go extinct.
Also, if something bad really happens and you choose a cave as your home, make sure you don’t go too deep within, because you never know when it could collapse on you.
I think you can easily make a cave your temporary home.
But be prepared, because this is one of the best spots to hide, and you will most likely have to defend it or share it in case others will read the same article as you.
- Remote islands
Taking refuge on an island is also a very good thing and could save your life in case of a cataclysm.
You need to understand that in case something awful happens, you are the safest when you are not near masses of people.
Maybe you think that a larger mass of humans will increase your chances of survival, but in my opinion, it is not necessarily true.
Yes, you could say that having a big group could be an advantage, but there are also more interests at stake, more opinions that need to be shared and, overall, more problems you need to solve in order to keep everyone happy in times of struggle.
Just think this through for a minute.
When do you have more chances of survival and when is your life easier?
When you need to speak out and coordinate a hundred more people, their thoughts, their opinions, and all their inconveniences?
Or rather when you just need to be in sync with your family and closest friends?
- Somewhere in the mountains and close to a river
Another very important thing you need to keep in mind is that in order for you and your group to survive, you will require a body of water.
It’s pretty basic because you cannot survive without water.
This is another reason why I said earlier that you must leave the city. If an event like this happens, then the city will become the battleground for resources, people will start stealing and fight each other for food and water.
The solution is to go into the mountains or forest where you can find clean, free water, and stay until maybe the order is restored.
There you can maybe chop some wood and build a shelter for your group, make a fire to not freeze, and also seek different fruits and mushrooms so that you do not starve.
Note that it’s vital making a difference between the edible and poisonous species! So, preparedness is key.
At the end of the day you need to remember that your life is more important than your city house or the stuff that you own.
In case a cataclysm really unfolds, then you must immediately leave the city.
Take no chances, go and find a good place to hide and ride this one out.
