The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

A 2-lb cross-pein hammer and a 90-lb anvil. Possibly my great-uncle's portable forge.

Heavens! I had no idea it was BYOB.
I thought it was "come as you are".

As the BoyScouts always said, "Be Prepared"

A 2-lb cross-pein hammer and a 90-lb anvil. Possibly my great-uncle's portable forge.
add tongs and an assortment of files.

Make tongs and an assortment of files. Even the portable forge would be a luxury (if I can ever get around to restoring the damn blower.) All you actually need is an anvil, one good hammer and a source of iron and fuel; everything else you can make as needed.

Should there be an 'apocalypse' I doubt I'd be a survivor and I'm not sure I'd want to be.

However, If there was still a well stocked bar.....

Companions: whatever friends prove willing to come.
Coping Mechanism: solar-panel powered computer and a huge archive of movies. As a bonus, entertainment for others would be good bartering 'goods '.
Primary Weapons: 20-guage shotgun. Capable of hunting anything from birds to bears with the right load, lighter faster and easier to handle than a 12 guage. (Most people want to go for the biigest baddest thing out there for self defense, but handling speed can be quite an advantage over sheer power imho)
Secondary Weapons: bow or crossbow. Black powder weapons may become advantageous if homemade black powder is available.
Vehicles: A sail and steam or wood-gas powered boat on the local river.
Occupation: charter/cargo/passenger boat skipper for hire, fisher on the side. Im figuring on a world some years post-collapse, where the local river (technically its a very long dam impounded lake, it deep and slow moving so fairly navigable) becomes the new highway and center for what economic trade exists, since its easier to travel over water than land using wind or biofuel power.

At least, this is the kind of post apocalypse life I like to fantasize about sometimes.

I speak in syllabubbles. They rise to the surface by the force of levity and pop out of my mouth unneeded and unheeded.

If you're touring by tank, you really should have an army bass.
