///   When The Shit Hits The Fan (SHTF) While Traveling

Changing of the Guard at National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine in Taipei, Taiwan /// VinjatekSurvivalist, prepper, trained specialist or not, experiencing a catastrophic, doomsday or SHTF event while traveling abroad changes things.

Resilience is being able to overcome the unexpected. Sustainability is survival. The goal of resilience is to thrive.

Take any wild animal out of their natural habitat and put them in a slightly different one and it will cause confusion, defensiveness, tension and often fear.

It’s no different with us humans when displaced in a different culture, country or merely when separated by an arbitrarily far distance from “home”. Escalated dramatically by a SHTF scenario.

The primary language and culture are really the only differences you need to worry about as the standard operating procedures for city-wide emergencies are relatively the same in developed cities.

What to do Before and During a SHTF Event //



The bigger and more developed a city, the better prepared and equipped it will be to handle crises. But it’s in these heavily populated areas that the crises will be far more impacted. A catch-22 of urban survival.

Prepping for disasters is excellent but remember, that “shit” could happen anywhere and at anytime, not just when you’re in the comforts of home.

You raise a good point. I know a few preppers who spend a lot of their income on supplies but it’s assuming SHTF while they are already home. What if there at work or traveling or simply can’t reach home during a SHTF? All that wasted.

What’s worse is if someone you told about your setup takes over your setup, SHTF becomes WTF.

I love your travel survival tips, keep them coming!


Another great point, John. Great article and nice questions for us to think about.
(PS: where did you take that photo?)
