shtf, distraught over loss of loved one,

even "just" a pet (especially in young children) and you're going to have non-cooperation, wailing, confusion, etc. It's quite unlikely that your group is going to be more of a help than a hindrance. There just aint enough disciplined, competent people in any one given area. You're not going to be able to assemble people from a 200 mile radius, post shtf. In fact, some that you COUNT upon, from a 5 mile radius, will probably not make it to the rendevous point, cause they got shot., stuck in traffic, clubbed, went looking for a loved one, got sick or hurt, etc. How long will you wait for them, eh? :-) The whole idea of a "survival group" is a jerkoff fantasy. The ones who DO show up will bring granny and a dozen others who are just a burden to the group, count on it. They will bring Aids, HepC, TB, etc, you can count upon it. you may "think" that you're going to be the boss-honcho, but somebody in your group is planning to pre-empt you, before shtf gets started, even. Certainly, after the fact, they are going to hate your guts about something.

Please show us your "crystal ball" or has your fantasy taken over again?

Well, the only one's I'd expect here are immediate Family. I would not plan on any group member I couldn't count on being allowed to "weather the storm" with us. Of course it's hard to predict every situation. Have to be flexible.
