A crazy idea that might just work

Recommended Posts

I live in Australia, which means there is very little access to guns, which in a way is a bit of a good thing if you consider the idea I am about to tell you.


I have always wanted to own a soviet BTR-60 armoured personnel carrier, like the one here:


It is a tough thing, with nuclear, biological and chemical protection, amphibious capabilities, self inflating tires, and two gasoline engines in case one breaks down. The one displayed there is some sort of communications vehicle with a radio mast, meaning if you manage to get the radio working, you can call for help. Some of the communications equipment is not needed, so it can be taken out if needed. Its frontal armour is bulletproof from military grade 7.62 rounds, and the sides are bulletproof from 100 metres away. This obviously means that some bandit with a .22 rifle will not be able to either shoot out one tyre in order to make a normal car stop, or shoot at any passengers within the vehicle.


The armour and power obviously makes it easier to push cars aside, so any blockages on a potential escape route will not be a problem. The interior of it seems to be quite roomy despite it being an armoured vehicle, leaving room to put enough food and other supplies to last a while as you leave the city and head to your bug out location, which thanks to the amphibious capabilities, can be on an island.


The only downside I can see is the rather large fuel consumption, however it can go around 500km with a full tank.


So, what do you think of it? Is it a good vehicle for when the SHTF?

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!

    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
