How Do We Prepare?
0
0
I would like to get a thread going that centralizes ideas and tips on getting ourselves ready for when the big one hits. I have seen many postings giving advice on different parts of preparedness, such as water filtration, silver/gold, food, etc. If we all post these ideas, tips, available deals, etc. in one central thread it will be easier for all of us to come up with an individualized comprehensive plan of action. Please share your thoughts on safety, finances, food/water, etc.

Thats a mighty list for people that live in apartments such as myself. Besides nobody knows what will happen. If it is only a financial collapse then yeah food and water supply is a must. But if a shift happens, volcanoes will be going off which is going to make growing food and even breathing not possible. If you live by the coast you made need a boat above all other things. An asteriod will be volcanoes x 100 and you will stand little chance of survival.

But if you got the room and the money then why not stalk up on things. If I had kids or wife I would probably be doing the same myself. But I am single and see whats to come as necessary for mankind. Balance must be restored to earth.

Understood Blackstar. That list is extensive. This full kit fits in the bed of a pickup truck but generally I wouldn't bug out with all of that. I have even added some outrageous items to the unwritten list. That said, I set out 8 months ago to be prepared for nearly anything survivable. Significant dough has been spent, and I may not need it ever. In fact I hope I don't need these things for the reasons that I purchased them. Some of them are fun! Anyway, smaller lists can be made out of that larger one. Start with things that meet your criteria.

Something people don’t think about is bugs and mice.
Your house would be a good place for vermin to hide if things get hostile outside.
You could scavenge up an item with roaches and invest your dwelling. Then
If you have mice. The snakes will be coming for diner.

Heavy duty all purpose bug spay and pump up sprayer is a must.

Another important item is bleach. You can clean and kill germs. But it can be used
as a way to disinfect water. Staying sanitary will prevent sickness.

I would recommend a box of industrial disposable respirators too.

this is a great list, remember that you will need enough for each member of your family and or some extra for a few SHEEPLE/BOZOS that will come to you for help.
so stock up enough supplies for at least 12 months of HELL!

Mental preparation is key as well to be able to help calm and comfort those who would freak out and maybe do something irrational. I'm thinking of a couple of my family/friends who are very flighty and flaky.

Add a Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe to your hand-tool collection. It's a small, very versatile, and Shape as Hell! Be Careful if your not versed in handling such tools? It's size is between an Axe and a Hatchet. My next addition is the Gransfors Scandinavian Forest Axe or splitting maul? Maybe both? These tools aren't cheap, but....well worth the extra $$$. No China Junk! Also a dual lansky puck sharping stone and a nice bow saw.
