Hi all. I'm Joe and I've been an occasional lurker and decided to register today. I'm in Randburg, South Africa and also in Centurion. I don't have a firearm licence but I'm keen on prepping as best I can. Things are looking very bleak here lately in SA.

You got that right. SA is a mess. Glad i am in Namibia. Will have a few days to get out of major towns/cities before the SHTF.

Welcome . One thing that makes this a great site is we have people from all over the World presenting prepping ideas .
I know South Africa and its neighbors have trouble with communist militias but is there any problem with islamist groups like in North and West Africa ?

Luckily not! However I think that there could be. Recently there has been alot of anti-Israeli protests against one of the retailers here and we understand that they may feel that they are being sidelined by this. Also we are having issues where there is alot of Xenophobia and many of the foreigners here that are being targeted are Islamist. There may be some kind of back-lash I guess.

My suggestion is find somone that ownes a farm. I know people that can help you. I am also a poor guy but have been prepping for 6 years now. I can give you advise if you like. There is a group in SA that will be ABSULUTELY to your advantage. In SA i think its the worst idea ever to bug in. I can show you countless reasons why. If you want to know.

I think to bug in is the worts idea ever. Here is why
-The water will be off.
-The electricity will be off.
-The police will not help.
-They are not your local gang war boys coming to your house.
-No they will be hundreds of thousands of black men coming to white nabourhoods with pangas and guns.
-If they cant get in they will simply set your house on fire.
-I guarentee you will not survive 3 days.
-Please man reconsider your bugging in plan.

Odd innit that in the UK because of population density and lack of space, bugging IN has become the norm for many families, whilst in SA bugging OUT is the default setting and in the US its a mix of both !!!!

( The aussies will just have a BBQ regardless)

Bugging in is a really bad idea. My group has four armoured cars and my own bulletproof, 4x4 modified mini cooper coupe.
Can you live for very long extended periods WITH your family in 4 armoured cars and a Mini Cooper?, you have to have one or more secure destinations to have a good chance of long term survive and thrive.
