Firstly, I think that it's great you're taking the time to buy all of these essential goodies, but I am going to throw a wrench in your plans with a
possible What-if scenario...
What if you're in your car, coming from work or somewhere, and TSHTF? The event is happening so fast, that you know you don't have enough time to
grab your gtfo bag or survival supplies, what do you do? You have to act soon, because your life depends on it. So you are left to deal with what you
have on you.
It can happen, it is very likely to happen to most of us, being at the wrong place at the wrong time with nothing but the clothes on your back and a
will to preserve your life. In this case, I think the best thing anyone can do, is to gain a geographic, and botanical knowledge of the environments
and ecosystems they live near or in. That way, you can run to the hills, and be able to forage off the land with confidence of the plants you're
picking for food consumption and healing.
Learning how to make weapons out of organic material can also be a useful tool when you've been left with nothing. Anything can happen to your stuff,
keep that in mind, people are going to want to steal from you, and if there's more of them or they have the big guns, there is nothing you can do but
Also, I've heard of some members finding specific locations out in the wild where they purposefully bury their goods in the ground and put it in
route to their preplanned wig-out destination (if you haven't, invest in an laminated map, GPS, and compass). You don't want to carry too much with
you, so just bring your most essential belongings in a travel pack and have your heavier, convenience items buried in whatever spot you choose.
It is good to have a specific safe-house/destination if you live in a highly populated area, because being in a city when TSHTF is asking for trouble.
You shouldn't trust anyone in a crowd of frantic, panicky people/sheeple.
Now, with all this said, I find it funny, that I know I am not prepared AT ALL. I figure, I don't have a car, I don't have much money, so if things
look like they are going south, I'm just going to hitchhike until I can get up to the woods, and go from there. I'm a lady, and the monthly deal is
something I just can't let hold me back, I know I purposefully won't bring any supplies, because then, it can be easier to get tracked by bears and
wolves or even worse, people. I don't know what I am going to do, but I know I will survive. Got to, right?
yeah, I know I'm done for, but hopefully I could help someone out with this info.
