    That's what I meant to say, an ATV that would work post EMP attack. They must make ATVs that would work post EMP attacks.

    It doesn't have to be a hostile country that does it, the sun could do it.

    Here's my suggestion for the power plant...a good, reliable start.

    I have a sneaky suspicion you're right. NK and chairman Kim was threatening to do so about a year and half ago, then something funny happened Jan 2018. There were multiple incidents, including the Hawaii "false" missile alert, then Jan 15th a strange power flicker in the midwest; https://www.ketv.com/article/what-ca...night/15174413

    ...and then a rather odd "meteor" on Jan 16th that was alleged to cause some momentary electronics and communications problems;



    There were a few other reports too in local news sources elsewhere in the country that made me raise an eyebrow, but I can't find them right now.

    I wouldn't be shocked to find out that NK or "someone" was testing our defense systems and messing with infrastructure. It wasn't but a few months later that Rocketman agreed to meet with PDJT.



    More likely the next EMP will be another natural solar occurrence, like the Carrington Event.

    I may be mistaken, but I don’t think the sun can cause an EMP. It can cause a CME, but the effects are not the same.
    We get the government we deserve.

    Extra starter, alternator, distributor and ignition box and I am good to go.

    This little Briggs and Stratton might be the ticket.

    Are you expecting an EMP in the near future? If an EMP struck, where would you get the refined petroleum fuels to run the ATV???

    Im not particularly expecting an EMP but I want to be prepared just in case. Also, I've always wanted an ATV, for other reasons. As for having fuel for the ATV, I would store up gasoline.
