TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

for transportation


Access to and beyond the home could be made feasible for people who don't hike well if they went 'horse'-back.
Also, carrying gallons of seawater and other things might become much less of an issue.
It would be an investment because the animal has to be fed, as well, but maybe at a later stage this all wouldn't be a problem, i.e. housing, grooming, feeding, etc.
Donkey [females] in Holland appear to be going for € 400

llamas


Llamas only seem to be able to carry a third of their own weight.
15. ]Can you ride a llama?
Only children under 50 pounds could ride a llama preferably on a well made pack saddle —although great packers, llamas can not withstand weight directly on their spine; pack saddles distribute the weight evenly over the ribcage.

We can use the wool, they're used to mountainous regions, and the Canaries have a South-American link that should facilitate getting one. Apparently ~brianp/[sign in to see URL]]they can also be used as guard animals.
Buying one in the UK is out; i saw an alpaca for sale at 4000 pounds... emoticon
Also, they're herd animals and one needs to get at least 2.

I saw American prices of around $ 1500 [and up].
I sent an email to an Argentinian breeder asking for prices and if the animals can be used for riding.
Everyone seems to be claiming that they're easy animals. They can be milked and are edible too... emoticon
the reply from the Argentinian breeder:

"llamas can be used for riding, are nice pets and packs animals. Price is 1000 U$D each, with quarentine and sanity requirements."
