"As a fan of science fiction, I have long recognised my shortcomings when it comes to surviving even the slightest glitch in civilisation's services. I find power cuts terrifying. I have panic attacks when my car breaks down. I even get upset when my phone drops out during my interview with post-apocalyptic survival specialist and UK Space Agency research fellow Lewis Dartnell.

"I don't know what happened there," says Dartnell when he gets back on the line. There'll be no mobile phones after the apocalypse, I think sadly…."

Yup they will be totally gone.

So all of those individuals who are addicted to them (I.E. around 98.99999%) are going to be totally hosed up.

Make sure that you have a rifle and plenty of ammunition, because it's a certainty that someone will try to take everything you own while you're pondering re-building civilization.

There are now pre-fab "off grid" (solar power, grey-water) "tiny homes" that peopel could add to their backyards that are reasonably affordable (to a homeowner).

Why not add a "guest cottage" that can house visiting friends, a parent, and adult child, or use as an air BNB, and can also function as your post-apoc "lifeboat" home?

My buddies are going to bring all our weapons, supplies, etc. and hook up with their Amish friends ! In the event of an extinction level event … evil grin

That's not a bad idea!… (smile)

I don't know if you're kidding or not, but that probably isn't a bad idea.

Actually my buddies and I talked about this. It could work ! They both know a number of Amish who live near by.
