If then in a bug out situation what do you plan on being your main source of food?

Nicely done, OT. Ever use waders? Know of any homespun methods for checking whether a fish is contaminated or not? I don't want to carry a science lab with me when I fish in waters I'm not familiar with. Any quick checks that can be done by just "eyeballing" it to see if it's safe to eat?
An intel net is a fine idea but isn't that what ATS is? What did you have in mind?

On the other hand, I've heard of women who gave birth in a few minutes, in bathroom stalls and department stores - even heard of women who didn't know they were pregnant (sounds unbelievable to me too, but who knows). So maybe you could keep moving if you absolutely had to.
Still, I would think it would be better if you could find a safe place for a while.

I rarely ever see this addressed anywhere on all the message boards I lurk, so I will ask it myself.
This is mainly a question for the girls out there.
If/when the time comes when America is under attack/martial law/whatever, and you're in full-blown survival mode, there is only so much preparation you can do right? So how do you deal with menstruation? I'm ready to deal with whatever comes my way but I am still trying to figure out exactly how I'm going to prepare for those "special" (specially annoying) times of the month that could either be a major hinderance (ie. no "supplies" and it's soaking your pants) or just an annoyance.
I mean, other than totally stocking up on feminine products, what is there to do? And that's assuming you will be bunkered down somewhere. What about when you're backpacking out in the middle of nowhere? I'm especially worried about that situation because I have no idea what I would do. Find a stream and sit in it all day? Are you supposed to use leaves or something? Please help me out and give me some tips.
And I left the title open to other tips and worries that could pertain to females only.
If anyone has anything else on their mind, feel free to post it here.
Maybe dealing with pregnancy?
Or newborn babies?
One thing is for sure, I definitely wouldn't want to be pregnant when s**t hits the fan.
