Looting, scavenging, call it what you will. When the SHTF, you might need to do a little scavenging. Scavenging after SHTF carries significant stigma, invoking your most dreaded nightmares. During man-made or natural disasters (including war), scavenging is a common occurrence.
I have for a long time wondered what items and tools we could find when scavenging and I think I hit the jackpot with this article from our friends over at prepforshtf.com.
Who knew that an abandoned car held so many survival items we can use in a SHTF situation. I personally know one more use for inner tubes; fill them with water and leave them in the sun and in a few hours you will have warm to hot water to shower with.
