This episode begins with a couple of characters heading out on a supply run beyond the confines of the survivor's stronghold established within Alexandria. This kind of venture is something you've heard me talk about before here on Backwoods Survival Blog, because I consider occasional outings to forage for supplies as something that will quickly become a fact of life in any situation resulting in the collapse of modern society. Just think about right now how often you need to run to the store to pick up this or that item; that need isn't going to necessarily go away, even though it may take another form or require adjustments. Imagine also that your money is now useless and the store itself may or may not exist anymore – hence, supply runs. Get used to the idea.
Possible sources for foraging are all over: abandoned stores and homes, vending machines, agricultural supply depots, etc. Really the only thing I didn't care for about the way they portrayed it in this episode is that I would personally consider it a bad idea or two people alone to go out. Granted, two is better than one, since each of them have someone to watch their back, but I think a slightly larger party (3-4 people at minimum) should be considered a rule of thumb whenever possible and whenever the manpower can be spared away from defending the home stronghold. A larger party means more muscle for quickly loading the things you find, and it gives you the opportunity to have someone standing guard while the others load.
