    SHTF traffic discouragement

    Do you have plans for reducing or eliminating traffic to your AO in the event of SHTF? For example, placing logs across the road or disassembling a bridge.

    You can do something as simple as dropping a few trees across the road at a choke point but it also limits your escape routes should you need to BUG out from a threat coming from another direction.
    We are all inclined to judge ourselves by our ideals; others, by their acts.

    Claymores and a few .50 cals........just joking.

    I have thought about this and I think one of the best lo-viz ways would be to use "road stars" on a chain. Easy to make and easy to transport. You can also deploy them fast and it does not have to be a permeate item in the road.

    I also found this link:

    edited to fix link.

    Are you referring to caltrops? I never thought to put them on a chain. Coils of barb and razor wire will tangle an axle. Saw that on a PMC reality tv show where a guy was helping gov.s in Africa.

    Felling trees would be a very good way to stop them, the link to survivalblog had some very good recommendations too.
    Maybe making HESCO's could work, quick and dirty solution.

    lucky for me, there are 2 county bridges on my road, one 100ft from my drive way, and the other about a 1/4 mile up the road. Both are just big ass culvert pipe bridges that can be brought down easily. Then we have 2 private bridges across on our property at different spots across a fairly wide and deep creek bed that we could take down as well. That would keep 90% of the trouble out.
    Be without fear in the face of your enemies.
    Be brave and upright that God may love thee.
    Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death.
    Safe guard the helpless and do no wrong.


    In the end, as you fade into the night, who will tell, the story of your life?
