Human migration
« on: November 22, 2010, 10:04:10 AM »
I would hope it doesn't come to this point, but, it won't matter who owns high ground if water starts rising. People will migrate to high ground for survival. Ownership could become moot. We all know, that there will be many, that won't migrate from their present home. Do not be one of these people. Become a nomad, as we all might have to, to survive. Survival is the main thing, nothing matters more.  You should preplan a migration path, if this becomes the case. Always be prepared to improvise.  ed

Very wise Ed, same as one would plan for a tornado, earthquake etc...... ALWAYS have a plan in mind and be sure your family is aware of it.

I think people will leave cities like crazy.  Cities will be horrible places to live during these upcoming troubled times.

Augie, they will probably be slaughter houses. Survival of the fittest.  ed

I've been seriously thinking of getting deep in the woods.  Are you allowed to build a cabin in a national forest?  I thought in the aftertime, if things got too rough here, I'd head to the woods.

Augie, I was wondering the same thing. But, if things go bad, who will stop us? They will be trying to survive, also.  ed

Great minds think alike!  I never thought of it in terms of they will be trying to survive too, I was thinking in more of the government forcing their way into wherever you are and taking over.  I'm worried about it no matter where I am.  I'm afraid the government will use their force and might to suddenly decide they want your land.

State and National parks are very large. Augie, I'd be willing to bet that a person could get "lost" and very difficult to find, if they went into certain areas.   ed

If I lived close enough to a nice size forested area I'd be starting very very soon to dig a place under ground, stock the heck out of it and then hide it perfectly. The hardest part would be bringing in the supplies and building materials. You'd have to do it after dark (best scenario) and most likely you'd have to carry it all in on your back. If you have one or two people you trust it would make it all alot easier. 

Just my .02.

I like the way you think. Darkness hides many things.  ed

An ATV could become very useful for certain projects.   ed

Geez, you guys are great for ideas,  I was thinkin along the same lines, but thought it sounded a bit too crazy...well, anyway.....Now it's sounding like a pretty good idea, because I'm really thinking I may be a little too close to the coast and my elevation is not as good as I'd like either.  Anybody wanna come help dig this weekend?

"Well fellas, what park are we squatting in? I wanna come too."

My ideas:

1)  Custer National Forest in SE Montana and NW South Dakota.
At one time, at least, it was possible to lease cabin space there.

2)  Manti-La Sal National forest in Utah
Very isolated.  Unique geology.  Eight lakes.

3)  Dinausor National Monument in Colorado and Utah.
But stay away from the Green River because the Flaming Gorge Dam upstream will break.
