None of us are 100% sure exactly what form the Doomsday Scenario will take when it happens, you can bet we're all going to be in big trouble. Food
will become scarce, banks and grocery stores will be locked down. There will be riots in the streets, Martial Law enforcement at every street corner.
Your money will be worth crap. Anxiety will overwhelm us and the fear of dying will increase. When the world goes to Hell we can either follow it or
take steps to prepare. We will be past all the economic bubble bursts so not to worry about that anymore. Crime will be rampant, Chaos everywhere.
I’m not a Pro. It is beneficial to buy an Army survival manual or Boy Scout handbook, as many survival books as you can afford. You may need to live
off the land with your bare hands. I would also advice buying eatable plant books with illustrations. Look online for easy home remedies. Apple Cider
vinegar is a good one, as is Aloe Vera juice or plant. I welcome some help here from others who know the ropes and can offer assistance. I have a lot
to learn, as well!
Do not panic! Number 1 rule. Psychological preparedness is critical if you want to keep your Ass alive.
Avoid destruction. Get out of any major City regardless if the apocalypse is brought on by God, G20, Aliens, Terrorists or Bilerbergs, get out!
Leave your laptop and cell phones home they can be tracked by GPS, also new tires have RFID chips embedded in the sidewalls. They only ask your name
for the warranty.
Find an alternate shelter, a cave, RV, Camper, 4 season tent or make your own with tarps and tie downs. Buy a spare tarp. You can also learn to make a
Teepee or lean-to shelter.
Get fit, carrying aunt Edna on a stretcher may be necessary.
Those who don’t own guns buy a Bow and LOTS of arrows, slingshots, with extra bands, baseball bat, mace, stun gun, whatever you can afford for
protection against crime and to hunt small game. Fishing accessories will be handy.
Lighting, get a wind up solar flashlight for 25 .00, candles, multi fuel lanterns, waterproof matches or make your own by dipping in wax.
Cooking, use a multi fuel camp stove or use fire. Make pots using coffee cans with wire handles, fire starters are inexpensive and can easily be
broken for several uses, many BIC lighters, the cheap ones wont hold up, lots of matches, build a tripod to hang your pots over the fire.
Heat, put a candle in a small can it will emit warmth, or buy hand warmers
Avoid hypothermia and heat stroke, dress in layers, add or remove them as necessary, always carry extra socks and extra pair of hiking boots.
Money, in the event money still has value carry small bills and change. A few bars of silver is inexpensive and can bribe the border guards or be used
Bartering, this may be dangerous. You don’t want anyone to know what you have. If you must barter some handy items are, (dollar store items), bar
soap, deodorant, twine, rope, razors, hair brush, mirror, hand sanitizer, bags of hard candy,etc. It’s funny the things you will miss when you
don’t have them.
