How to travel through hostile environments
During a SHTF event, potential hostiles could be anywhere and only your wits will help you get to your safe place. If you are forced to travel through hostile environments where the human factor poses a real danger you need to have a plan and some common sense.
If things heat up in your area, you must leave quickly and quietly if you don’t want to become part of a gruesome statistic. If you get stuck in the wrong place, chances are you will be attacked by thieves or other elements of society that wish you harm. In order to avoid capture and move undetected, there are a few rules you should follow.
Under pressure, most people cannot concentrate and they fail to blend in as they make obvious mistakes that would give away their position. Making noise and light should be avoided, especially if you travel at night. You can blend in easily as long as you follow your senses when you travel through hostile environments. Your brain is a powerful survival tool and it is designed to keep you alive, even when danger is lurking at every corner. It has the ability to filter out or ignore information that would create stimulus: sounds, movements, color and threats. By doing so, it will prevent you from acting in a way that would trigger a predator’s instinct. As a quick example, your brain is able to ignore the sound of a clock or ceiling fan, but it will trigger a fast response if you hear glass break or any other sound that implies a dangerous scenario.
