We live in a metal world. There is no reason why you shouldn’t at least have some interest in all that metal that cakes our planet. We have salvage and scarp yards piled to the sky and we have buildings made of metals and other resources that are built into the heavens. Survival is a battle of resources and we must be prepared to take advantage of any and all resources.
This is an article that features prime locations for post disaster salvage. While you might think that going right to the salvage yard might be your best bet, remember, there will be threats. If the world has collapsed you might be in danger when you face the outside world. A place that might seem like a no brainer for resources could be filled with aggressive and desperate people. That is a serious problem.
