Fundamental problem with all prepping imo unless you truly live out in the absolute middle of nowhere.
If youre prepping to get through a few weeks of societal disruption(mainly natural disasters), it makes perfect sense.
If youre prepping to make it through the complete break down of society, anything beyond a go bag and some food and water is pointless. You arent going to be taking advantage of your sweet solar setup cooking all that rice you had stored in mylar bags. Raiders are because youll either be dead or long gone.
Ya, i'd say it's doable though, and many people will do it. You just need to have a defensible location and at the very least, three families to have a proper 24/7 watch while also being able to get work done. Five + families would be much better. Even then, you have to hope the populace gets back towards civilized society within a certain time frame (probably a year?). If not you'll end up with roving bands of enough people to overwhelm almost any defensive position.
