More bear food – and tips on how to grow and catch your own

Life after the apocalypse

What if the doomsayers are right ... what if society, as we know it, really is about to collapse? Do you have what it takes to make it in a world without electricity and running water? Tanya Gold offers an essential survival guide. I am an urban girl. I have no skills except whingeing and bingeing. I can barely open a packet of Hobnobs without an explosive device. The post-apocalyptic norm - see 28 Days Later - is for survivors to sit in desirable country mansions, eat tinned tomatoes, develop post-traumatic psychosis and shoot each other. Never in any apocalyptic scenario in any movie I have seen - and I have seen them all - does anyone try to live off the land. Fun things you could do after the apocalypse: Break into M15, read all its secret files. Oh, no! She was murdered! I knew it!

  • This woman has clearly *not* seen all the apocalypses… one apocalypse I can think of where they try to live off the land is the glorious/horrendous Threads…

  • inflation is eating my savings says:

    I was also about to mention “Threads”.
    Sits in the mind for a long time afterwards. Powerful stuff.
    I’m sure the survivalists out there know the John Wyndham novels- particularly the Kraken and the Triffids. Great stuff.
