When supplies are low and you are running out of options, one of the best ways to get what you need is to set up an ambush near a frequent convoy or freight road.
You have seen in movies how a helpless woman on the road is asking for help and when a poor un-suspecting good Samaritan stops by to help, her friends jump him and take all his stuff.
That strategy works, but it also puts someone in your party at risk. Finding ways to stop the convoy or a truck without raising suspicion can be difficult unless you pick the right place for your ambush.
You will want a place to hide near the road.
You will want to use the natural landscape as barrier to keep the target ambush zone.
You will want to have an escape route for your group.
You will want to make sure that you can’t be ambushed while you are ambushing your target.
There are a lot of good resources on YouTube about setting up an ambush and picking the right spot.
Just remember to plan an ambush that this isn’t something that you do on a whim. Plan it and do the research to make sure the reward is worth the risk.
