I was just reading another post, and someone identified this vehicle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtcd1kSdlQY&feature=player_embedded It kinda got me to thinking. On this forum, we often talk about "bug out vehicles", but not too much is said about transportation or farming vehicles once you are at your retreat. It will be important to still get around post SHTF, and some may opt for horses, jeeps, ATV's or just a plain 'ol beater car or pick up. The biggest considration is FUEL. Even horses need to be fueled (fed), so one has to decide for themselves what the best option is for their particular situation. As for me, I personally have 4 of the Polaris Diesel Quads (all under 1000 miles on them)...run great on #2 diesel, and have enough power to pull a house down. Great SHTF vehicle as diesel is stable for longer periods of time if you thought to lay in a couple thousand gallons in your preps. Goes about 150 miles on a 3.7 gallon tank (40mpg) and can haul things. You could also make bio-diesel if you are handy with such things. You can use this ATV for transportation, farming, and best of all, NO GASOLINE REQUIRED!!! Why settle for two wheels, when you can have four. Better for getting around in the snow IMO. Put a set of ATV tracks on them, and you are virtually unstoppable IMO. I like have multiple units as I can cannibalize the broken ones for parts if there are none available after the balloon goes up. Arctic Cat also made a diesel in 2007, but these are the only two I know of ever being made. It took some doing to find the four I have, but I am VERY happy to have them!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QXDmKqq2Do http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4osKwTq7mU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJi6ZSN4q64 So how do you plan to get around or farm after you arive at your safe haven??? I look forward to hearing everybody's opinion!!!
