  1. I would rather have a bicycle. First of all the Tesla cost so much money ! So when you get to your destination, how are you going to charge it? If you have a normal gas vehicle, you can trade or find gas with abandon vehicles. The idea vehicle will be a diesel engine that can run on pure vegetable oil or motor oil. I have run many vehicles on waste veg oil with out any problems over 70,000 miles. Also these old diesel engines can act as a generator to run your power tools. Electric vehicles are useless in the end of days in my opinion. It will be in practical to charge it.! The best would be a modified truck to run on burning wood gas. Or go back to old school and get a horse and carriage, donkey or mule.

  2. Driving around in an electric vehicle (or almost any vehicle for that matter) during an SHTF scenario? Well, in many SHTF scenarios you’re talking about carrying around a “Please Carjack Me” sign.

    1. +SwissArmy1984 How is it different than a normal car? Let someone underestimate the driver and see what happens 😀

  3. The problem to a large extent with induction motors seems to be that you cannot get high power sustained for a longer period of time without overheating. I suspect this makes the electric ATVs great (if not pulling trees distances) but not so great at heavy loads up a mountain (not an issue in Saskatchewan). I would also note that batteries freeze too, and they don’t do well after. I does get nippy in Saskatoon. All in all, your analysis was very informative.

  4. What does it mean to be prepared? I often give a presentation within my group entitled, “A Tale Of Two Preppers”. It serves to remind us to be prepared for both the best of times and the worst of times. Because our goal is adaptability and sustainability, …regardless of what changes take place around us for better or worse. What good is it to be prepared to deal with your failures, …if you are not also prepared to deal with your successes? So on and so worth.

    We often struggle as people. And we struggle to properly identify potential threats as well. We all too often misidentify “change” as a threat, …because the real threat is our own unwillingness to change. I’ve actually seen some parents be secretly pleased that their child had failed their driving test. Stating that, “In a way it was a relief, because I wasn’t ready for them to start driving just yet.” Often siting the “dangers of driving” as well as “the lack of time they have had to teach all that could be taught”.

    Where I live, it takes the equivalent capabilities of a Ram 2500 Power Wagon just to go about your daily routines with any sense of confidence. There is no electric vehicle, as of yet, that can meet my needs. One day, in the worst weather we have seen in years…a friend and neighbor said to me, “Maybe we should just move.” I took great offense to that suggestion, …but that doesn’t mean he was wrong.

    I’m not a Democrat, …but I have always found solace in a quote from John F. Kennedy that reads, ““Even today, there is little value in ensuring the survival of our nation, if our traditions do not survive with it.” But one of our greatest strengths, …our greatest “traditions”, …is our ability to adapt to the future.
