Would a junk yard would be good to raid?

When I first began this blog I was trying to figure out the best place to loot after Law&Order no longer plays on reruns.  My thought process was looting is not criminal when it is a matter of survival, I mean, everyone does it.   After reading the prepper blogs I have come around to way of thinking that looting is not a good plan for the apocalypse for a host of decent reasons.  First, you will be surrounded by other looters.  Looters, as a rule are a desperate and unethical bunch.  You are more likely to be stabbed with a screwdriver in a mob while stampeding out than getting enough food to survive.  Why associate yourself with these people?

So looting is out, but then a friend suggested the value of looting the dump.  This is not as bad as an idea as it sounds on first instinct.  There will be food for the chickens.  There will be things to smelt.  There will be spare parts.  The problem is that your average smuck would not know what to do with the random parts one would find at the dump.    I should take in a load for research.

Anybody been to dump recently?

    You would (theoretically) need to bust open all the festering plastic bags and prepare to be astonished by the smaller gems, as well.
