Didn’t realize the Koreans had that level of organization either Dirk. None of the stories I read about them went into that much detail, just that they banded together to protect their businesses and the pics of them on the rooftop. Any suggested reading to get more details?
On the mission planning I mentioned I’d just clarify it’s more than just the logistics but a complete plan I’d like to see them lay out. A large part of being prepared is the pre-planning after all, but I never see a hypothetical scavenging mission discussed with the same level of detail that would goes into, say, home defense planning.
What’s the optimum number for a scavenging team? What role will each member take? Daytime or nighttime? Announce your presence and intent (yelling, honking, white flag) first? Hit hard, fast, and get out quick like a bank robbery, or more like a cat burglar relying on stealth and taking more time for a thorough search? What’s the loadout/gear for each person – weapon(s), crowbar, bolt cutters, lockpicks, loot bags, flashlights, etc? What’s the plan if the team surprises or is surprised by people hidden inside, or if another group approaches from the outside – fight, flight, surrender if ordered to do so? Any instructions for those remaining back at the home/base in the event the team doesn’t return? Those just for starters…
As Cast Iron mentioned, it’s like a lot of people think they’ll have a crystal ball or a complete set of facts going into every possible situation. Who’s more dangerous, a career criminal out looting for profit or a parent with a hungry child? Unlike the old westerns the bad guys won’t always be wearing black hats either. Illini Warrior’s take on it is basically my thoughts as well, and not to single you out Photon Guy, but if you’ve considered and planned for a scenario where you might need to scavenge to get home then would like to hear your thoughts especially.
