We are going to Istanbul in three weeks. 18 terrorist attacks during the last 5 years (300 dead, 800 wounded, mostly inoccent civilians), 4 in 2016, all in places we will visit. Statistically an incident there is more probable than any other we talked about in this thread (with the exception of Zombie Apocalypse perhaps).
Who could suggest the way we should prepare?  I would really like to prepare, but for what and how?
Maybe an insurance and last will would be better here than axes and food supplies.

Are you ok?

Three weeks would mean he hasn't left yet hopefully.

Fingers crossed.

I hope it is not too late to cancel the trip.

Exactly my point, you will never know what is going down next.

I was really hoping to come into this thread and find an "We haven't gone yet" from Kkokkolis.

I am not a prepared prepper but one thing I know this civil, orderly society is walking on a thin line. Social chaos is one stumble away.

We would be going next Friday. I was sleeping after an exhausting tour in our Thessaloniki Opioid Substitution Treatment Units, when me whife woke me up after midnight, telling me there was a coup in Turkey and there is no way she is going there after that. She offered Santorini as an alternative. I said OK and stupored again. Now I see that the coup failed but it will be impossible to change her mind. Personally I feel at home in Turkey (my grandparents were born there, as Greek Othoman citizens) but my wife doesn't share that feeling.
Thank you for your interest. We have some Turkish members, I hope they are OK too. Now, the bottom line is that some preppers should be prepared for military coups and revolutions too!

I am glad you guys are safe.

When you are prepared got one thing, you are prepared for others as well, more or less.

Someone will ask me one day, me being supreme warlord commander, what did you do before the great war?
I sold tvs at best buy.


I prep for domestic social disorder. Anything worse I probably don't want to survive. Best to get a lawn chair and a six pack watch it all go down.  ::)

Sadly, that is probably the only real plan available to most of us.

Quote from: Pippin
the closer you are to danger, the farther you are from harm


I don't know if I'll die from food poisoning and dehydration, be blown up in a explosion, or be split in twain riding an R1 at 300km/h into a supporting leg of a highway overpass.

I'd probably prefer to avoid the first one if possible.

A weapon isn't a substitute for brains though.

So many NRA jokes, gun nut jokes and redneck jokes and so little time.  :rofl:

I don't know what NRA is, I never met a redneck in my life (I've been in about 10 States and the only farmer I met was a nice guy from Texas, dressed as a cowboy in black and the most gentle you can imagine) and I know no gun nut. In fact I'm the only person I know personally (forums acquaintances excluded) who has a library about guns, a big collection of toy soldiers and many knives. The only reason I don't own a gun is that I'm sure I would probably use it.


But:


1. The quote I said I learned in the army, the Special Forces Training Center. I heard it from a Marine. Marines think that they are more clever than Commandos. Commandos think that they are more clever than Paratroopers. Paratroopers think that they are more clever than Marines. All three (and I talk about the Greek Special Forces soldiers I met) think that they are more clever than regular hoplites. They used (then) the FN FAL battle rifle and the rest of the army the G3. I asked which was better and that's the answer I got. It's how you use your weapon that matters. I thought that they knew what they were talking about, they are specialists.
Army doctors think that they are more clever than all the rest army elements if you want to know but you were afraid to ask.
2. Our Admin here has a nice motto: Primum instrumentum est inter avres. That's what I said, just that.

Watch the movie The Survivalist


I had a really bad flu last week, they seem to be getting worse each year.  If I was out on my own somewhere busy "surviving", even if equipped it could've been my end.
