Oddly enough right now I can say I dont like you. This is due to your attitudes buts lets say for circumstance sake you and your wife end up in the X
If it is a planable one
Say have a cabin somewhere-
First stock up one the following items
Alcohol, cigarettes, ammunition, guns, generators
note try and get the cabin in a secluded area with solar panels and spare parts
now it does seem your trying to get the replacement medical supplies
not for trade- antiseptic for surgeries ect
Cigarettes- get over it- there for trade just wait a while they will be worth gold
anything you run short of can be traded for
Ferns- have your wife plant them now- find some old WWII field training manuals- soaps main ingrediant- great uncle told me that0 they taught it to
Stock up on bandages, a whole house full and seal it properly so you have no rats.
Kurt Saxons'- Poor mans james bond good book ( a lot of weapnos but also feild medicine-

If you want to go whole hog. Set up using
buy it in an llc's name if people ask what your there for, "My boss wants this cabin set up for him.
before I forget----
Aspirin and a whole lot. Start buying now
also your wife will thank you for this. Buy as many feminine hygiene products as you can cram in the cabin. Trust me..... That is the other item I
have not come across a good replacement.
build a green house for her at the cabin. Get her to grow the ferns and other herbs.
My last thing to remind you to stock up on is salt. Lots of it as well.
