Pack animals are a great BOV!
I would love a horse or two
Yep I would like a couple horses, a mule or two, and a few goats too.
I don't know why so many people want vehicles that need gas spare parts etc. Horses, goats, llama, mules, etc make much better BOV's as they can graze for "fuel", have personalities to keep you company, and can become food if ever needed in emergency.
Well, the point of this thread is for vehicles. You do have a point, because they are great for the use of movement, but look at it this way, as they have their ups and downs. The Cons of both are very similar in nature; both reqire 'maintnance', 'feeding', and 'care' in terms of gas/food, broken radiator hose/broken leg, ect.
-FAST Transportation/Evacuation out of an area
-Provide large load-carrying ability
-Provide protection against numerous things
-Dont get 'tired'
-Can bug-out without attention (An unban dweller cannot bugout on horseback, especially if it was for a non TEOTWAWKI event)
-Downside of fuel concerns
-Not a "fast transport" option unless it's through dense woodland that a vehicle cannot move
-Limited load carrying ability, unless you have a cart or multiple animals
-No protection factor
-Can be scared by animal/person
-Abnormal unless your in a very rural area
-Hard to be stealthy under some circumstances
While either can be used successfully in their own scenarios, for 99% of the time, unless it's TEOTWAWKI, a vehicle will be better suited to than an animal. In a TEOTWAWKI scenario, animals will be extremely important for transportation, but they will still not be the end all.
That being said, I'd love to have a goat or horse, If I knew how to care for it and lived in the country.
Now, back to the topic, sorry for the short derail.
Honestly, I'd love to have a multifuel Deuce, and that's a pretty attainable goal I figure. Start from scratch with a 12v conversion if possible.
