Guys and gals, remember – if you make it too difficult for someone to get in, then it’s just as difficult for you to get out if you have to run.

I’m not saying to have a secret underground tunnel like the gang from Hogans Heroes, but always have a way out. If you don’t have a way out, well… been nice knowing ya.

The point (heh) of all this is to make your digs look and be so uninviting to the bad guys that they pass you by and go looking for easier prey. If they have nothing left to lose, it could be a problem for you. ALL these things can be defeated, mostly by fire, some by stealth and wirecutters, some by brute force and the weight of numbers…

BUT, if you’re hooked up with your neighbors and you use these area denial methods, it would take a lot of determined effort… especially if you get creative. After all, the bad guys burn just as easily as acacia bushes do…

The wicked flee when none pursueth..." - Proverbs 28:1
