Survival in Maine

Postby abraham » Sun Dec 12, 2010 4:12 pm

We have it a little different from any other states here in Maine. The main thing is, you are going to only Maine when you enter because there are no other states that border us when you leave N,H..

We have a rockie coast with limited use.

That said we have wild life, fish and plenty of wood to keep you warm. Survival skills here are a must if you go into the woods. I mean that as any time you do go into the woods. They are not forgiving to the ones that have no savvy of how to get back out. Sure we have rescue teams. Can you live off your items you carry on you? Say one day? Two days?

Before you come here or are a person who has lived here for awhile. carry items to keep you alive for a few days.

I will post later what I feel you need with you. Others if you know what to carry, Please post it here in this thread

1 – Wind and Waterproof Matches Pack
1 – Magnesium Block(fire starter)

Extra Seasonal Clothing (Wool Socks, Jacket and Layered Clothing)
Necessary Prescriptions

Address Book
Cash – $200 Worth
Coins – $10 Worth

other possible "stuff" - hiking boots, wool socks, thermal underwear, 1 long sleeve shirt, 1 jeans, 1 hoodie, beanies and 2 pairs of gloves.

Bear in mind that appropriate items would be duplicated for each person in your family/group capable of carrying their own b.o.b. common sense SHOULD dictate what not to include in a child's bag...

add to/replace/remove at your own discretion the idea being: be prepared
Pray for the best while prepping for the worst.

Here's another...close to home.

www.maine.gov/ifw/education/pdfs/aloneinmainewoods.pdf

I live in CT and pretty much planning to get out of that hole if things start looking bad. Maine/NH will definitely be the place to be, the people are tremendously tight with eachother and will fight to the end.
Connecticut, the zombies are everywhere and reproducing, People in Maine don't know how good you have it regarding survival potential, the woods, fresh water, game, plus, just 20 miles inland and it's like going back to the 1960's. I found my haven up north, the old Connecticut is gone.

Ive been living up here for 49 years and have seen 90% of Maine camped out in every corner of it from time to time for weeks at a time..Wouldnt trade it for any patch of land on this planet You can survive up here if you know what your doing (And i do know what im doing it seems ) Patriot Preacher that bag is nice but a bit heavy That electronic poo poo will FAIL you everytime up here Map & Compass & Topo Map better have it in your kit....As i see you added it to yours.... Maine is a great place to disapear from society if the crap hits the fan... If you''ve got a small to medium Caliber firearm and you know how to hunt you can survive up here for a long time (yeah with a licence game tag , Fish licence) Anyway Welcome to Maine Pilgrim and Remember You carry in You Carry Out....One mans Trash isnt alway's another mans Treasure....

Anyone ever go hunting and never see anything and come home empty handed.hunting and surviving are two differant things.ATM comming home empty handed is fine you got out there and go home to a nice meal.Surviving come home empty handed means comming home to nothing. You better know how to use snares n trot lines. nets etc. these work while you rest.Something else to think about its wild here because population is sparce in a wtf situation every fool on the east coast from every major city is gonna come thru that choke point right into Maine.Do you really think thats in our best interest ? IMO I cant allow that to happen, my family has military vets demolitionist and marine recon and army rangers.You wanna be in Maine before SHTF because after the only way your comming in is on foot.One other thing Southern Maine and Northern Maine are to very differant places. With very differant temperatures.Ive seen -50 in my door yard for 3 solid weeks before.Not much can kill you here, but weather is a definate killer here if your left exposed.If you have children in tow PLEASE use your head.

Im a Maine guy currently stationed in CT my current plan is to bug out to Maine. But if i were the Governor i would place the Maine National guard on the 95 bridge at the Maine/NH border and either blow it or only let through Maine residents. which is why ive mapped out a quite a few back ways into the state and to my family.
