but I have picked up a few things off of craigslist lately you all might want to add to your lists...
The first is a hand crank grain mill so I can make my own flour...this one also has an adaptor to make it belt driven from a small motor...
I also bought this spinning wheel off a kind of funky old back to nature new age hippy hold out... man she was way out there... Of course you can just make one out of Bike rim if you dont want to buy one
anyway I also picked up the hardware so when I have time I can build a Loom...
the other handy item I have stored away is something called a Yukon Chainsaw Mill See what I'm talking about here Anyway what this baby does is clamp to a log... with the chainsaw you can then cut perfect timbers or planks...
I do have plans to build my own Cast Iron Sink Forge Nothing major mind you just big enough to make simple repairs or even cut nails if I need them...
I mean its not just about food water and keeping yourself safe right...you do want to be comfortable have new clothes blankets, fix that broken hoe of maybe build on another room if a new baby comes right? not that you need wood to build a room or even a whole house... all you really need is a little clean dirt to live in high style

Speaking of which, how would I able to use solar panels in an apartment, and In worse case, (civil war, WW3) what would happen to my housing?
What plans would be best to survive an urban area like this?
