The Less Populous parts of the Carribean, Backed by Boat Capability, is Excellent.

But a Caution and Downside of "Small Island Survival" or Bugout, Comes to Mind.

And that's that All that a Powerful Enuf Enemy would Have to Do!, is to Land a Small Marine Force, Toward Finding you!

As a Hypothetical Red Chinese Run Show could be!, for one Chooseing a Pacific Island to Survive and Lay Low on!

A Small Island Does Not Give one Much Maneauvering Room! And in some cases, Not All that Many Resources!

Look How Easily a Determined and Searching Enemy could Find you!, and On their Cheap!

Thanks for the feedback, that's what the boat's for, I don't plan on spending more time on land that at sea.

I Hear You, but Make Sure you're Out in Time, Before those kind of Forces Put Up a Naval Blockade, Round the Whole Island you happen to be On! If Not on an Island, but Rather on your Boat, -Make Sure that That!, Doesn't get Located either! Otherwise, I Do Hear your Point! [color:"black"] [/color] [email]wildcard163[/email]

Not to mentoin, I don't exactly think a middle aged guy with a smallish boat is going to be a high priority target.

I Guess He would Not be! I Hate to Put In a Small Tone of Disagreement again!, But What if the Patrol Boat Commander Orders his Crew to nevertheless "Search that Middle Aged Man and his Boat for Whatever He may've Got!" Plenty of Innocent Looking People have been Known to be Good Smugglers! He may Have Had Experience with these kinds of Things Before, back on the South China Sea or Somewhere! Or Be Under Orders Himself from a Higher Up, Who Has!I Find it Hard to Beleive, that he and his Crew wouldn't Find Something of Our's, on our Such Boats. An Innocent Appearance is Great!, We Have to Do It, in such Situations. But Mid Agers and Other Innocents or Innocent Appearers, Do Sometimes get Searched! So Try to Avoid their Pulling Up to you in the First Place!, by Being Outta There!, in the First Place! Shud Worse Come to Worse, and you Havn't Gotten Out in Time!, They Pull Up, Demand a Search!.....Then you'll just Have to Sit Cool and Tight, Wing It, Keep Up Appearances, and Hope For the Best! May you Successfully Pull it Off!

But I'd Scat!, Before they ever Pulled Up to me!, or Ringed the Island!

I'd Go for a Larger Island, or a Continental Area!

It's Good to Stay Near the Water though! Even Here!

The Point may yet Come where I say, "I Have No Further Difference!", or "You're Right." But if you Keep Wanting to Chance It with such a Naval or Coastal Blockade!, I'm Afraid that thats Not Coming any Time Soon! <img src="images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

While Not Shying from Difference, I Look Forward to Not Having to somewhat Disagree. I'm like some Asians and Others,-That Makes me Nervous!

Still, I'm also Nervous about Chanceing Small Islands and Naval Blockades! Even Being Caught Alone in such a Small Boat! Now if you Can Keep Successfully Evading in such a Craft!, Then Fine!.....! [color:"black"] [/color] [email]wildcard163[/email]

Just out of curiosity, will you be taking any cats on board? If so, will they risk becoming high priority targets? <img src="images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Loc: Just wandering around.
Reminds me of the (probably true) story about the rich guy at the beginning of WW2. Looked far and wide for a place to be safe. Decided on the Pacific Ocean, far from the european difficulties. Moved to a small island group called the Solomon Islands. Nice little place named Guadalcanal.

There is no safe harbor, but mobility might help in escaping the local problem. That is one of the reasons we have wheels on our house.

Tried the boat idea. It is much more difficult (and expensive) than it appears.

As to the likelyhood of some large event. I worked with some folks from Germany that were well off (middle class, mechanical engineers) before the war and survived by eating grass and small rodents. They had no idea that their modern and comfortable life could possibly be so disrupted. First time I went over to their house, they pointed out their need to have food stuck in every corner. They knew it seemed odd, but just could not help themselves. Empty space, fill it with a can. Their stories had quite an impact on me.

I do plan for such an event, but the majority of my effort along that line goes for much more likely events. The more likely the more effort.

Nomad.

True, but the Disruptions of WW 2 might Not have Seemed so Likely to your German Acquaintences!, Before that Fact of the War. This is just some Appropriate Food for Thot. [color:"black"] [/color] [email]Nomad[/email]

Hadn't much thought about a cat, but after Chris's last post, I might have to give more thought to including a "Rat patrol", or would "Rat repell boarder" be a better term? <img src="images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

I think I will just head for Canada, then I will be the only one with a gun. I always wanted my own country.
