I just watched the “RV Nomads” movie on YouTube, and one small segment caught my attention. In it, they insinuated that some people were living the full-time RV lifestyle because of a chaotic society that might collapse someday.
Well, I hate to break it to them, but living in an RV after a societal collapse is the worst place you want be, even if you are off-grid.
The off-grid RV’ers and van dwellers all seem to think they are living outside the matrix, but what they are doing does not even come close to being self-sufficient. If the grid goes down, they go down with it.
Most do not have the skills needed to survive outdoors without a resupply source. They need gas stations, propane, cell service, and electronic banking. Food from grocery stores, auto parts stores, and the just in time delivery trucks that make it all possible. Some even need Walmarts to shit in, and gym memberships to shower. They may think their living outside the matrix, but the truth is they cannot live without it.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love RVing, and even recommend having one to bug-out in for a localized disaster. But let the grid go down, and you’re going to want a secure home base or survival retreat because life on the road is going to get real.
So unless you have some impressive survival skills that will allow you to live off the land for an extended period. You need to get a plan or hope you happen to be in the perfect “end of the world” location when it all comes tumbling down.
