I'm a big fan of natural work arounds for bugging out and extreme survival. While not auto mechanics it falls under mechanical engineering. Just something cool to do if you guys are into off grid type of living. These do have to be rebuilt every three or so months to keep them real hot. If you do one and have issues getting it started, piss on it or use coffee grounds. The nitrates spark up the breakdown really quickly. https://www.instructables.com/id/Compost-Heating-System/

In reality, it depends on the engine and the climate and what you can do to repair that, if anything. If you're driving something like an old VW, they're air cooled so they don't even have a radiator. If you're driving a modern car, they'll throw some weird code and scream at you til it started siezing up and messing up the actual cylinder

That's the easiest way to get as much heat as you can go, limp it as much as possible until you get to a safe zone. Also. JB weld. I have JB welded quite a couple of radiators for a temporary fix.

Since discussion had already started, im thinking my go to heavy vehicle will be a chevy express panel van. If you can find a one ton extended, you can easily upfit to have some sort of armor inside and still fit your light vehicle (dirtbike) and have room for ammunition and arms. Plus you have the bulletproof GM 6.0

Shit me too. I know how to shoot handle and clean guns but I don't know them like some of these guys do. Don't know shit about comms or medical. So this is pretty much the only place I even know what's being talked about

I can shoot and handle myself but I dont think i'll be much use mentally in the field. I could figure out comms if I needed to but i havent devoted time to learn yet. I feel medical should be left to those trained in medical
