Travelers notes for the post apocalyptic survivor
Old world salvage is hard to come by. Whether it be vacuum preserved food or power-tools, most of the common places of interest have already been raided. One can find such treasures if they are ready to face great danger.
When the global wireless network went up in 2147, a perfect internet connection could be accessed from anywhere on the planet. A problem was soon discovered. The global network interfered with navigation equipment making it difficult to export and import good by air and sea. The answer to this problem was drastic yet elegant.
A rail-cannon "Goliath" was created capable of punching a laser through the Earth itself entering at one point and exiting at a desired point on the other end of the planet. A blast from the laser was followed by a release of billions of nano construction bots that instantly created a hollow tube system with a built in rail. A second generation of locomotives were developed that started at one end of the Earth, pulled down by the gravity of the Earth and then propelled by rockets to reach the other end providing a speedy transport of goods.
When the world went dark these machines were still in use and filled with cargo. If one is bold enough they can 'dive' for these subterranean machines but with the risk of falling into a bottomless pit.
Always be on the look out for the clan of PETA. After the POD network went down resulting in a drastic decline in the population of the US, the group formally known as the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals saw it as a sign that the era of human kind was at an end. Long living with the Reality Liberation Organization their views had turned extreme. After seeing the terror of the Raiders they changed from protecting wildlife and became a movement for an entire cleansing of human-kind. Only having respect for fellow members, their only mission is to wipe out the remaining humans while they are on the ropes to return the world to the animals.
