So you’ve survived and now you find yourself trying to stay alive in a hostile world filled with thugs, criminals, looters and raiders.  They are everywhere; so to increase your survival chances you must minimize any target indicators that you give off.

A target indicator is anything that will reveal your location to an enemy.  As you move throughout the post apocalyptic world; avoid at all costs giving off the following target indicators.

  • Avoid walking on creaky wooden floors or stepping on twigs or branches.  Noises you create are your enemies.
  • Avoid having your reflection showing in windows, mirrors and other shiny surfaces that can give away your position.
  • Avoid giving off shadows.
  • Avoid having your gun muzzle protrude from around a corner as it can lead to a gun grab by an enemy.
  • Avoid the sounds of your clothing scraping against a wall.
  • Avoid leaving a previously closed door open after you have entered a location and vice versa.  Small changes to a location can indicate that you have been there.
  • Avoid leaving the smell of tobacco in a location where that smell was not present before.
  • Avoid colognes and scented soaps as these smells can be easy for an enemy to track.
  • Avoid leaving footprints especially muddy footprints.  They are easily tracked.  
  • Avoid leaving palm prints on foggy windows.
  • Avoid talking when not necessary as sounds can travel a good distance revealing your position.
  • Avoid wearing gear and other equipment which rattles.  Your gear should be properly fastened to ensure it remains quiet; as you move about the terrain.
  • Avoid quick and jerky movements.  These movements are easy for an enemies eyes to detect.
  • Avoid creating strong cooking odors which can lead unwanted visitors to your location.

    Dude are your books only available on kindle? No Hardback?

      Only on kindle or other ebook format readers. The reason is it helps keep the price down for my readers. I believe there are free kindle ebook readers that can be downloaded for computers if you do not have a kindle.
