Here is a general rule of thumb to help you narrow down the SHTF scenarios you have to prep for.
Don’t waste your time prepping for the extreme 90% population death scenarios. Because you will most likely be in the majority, and that is the only
If a nuke hits your city, you will be dead.
If a killer virus spreads through, you will be dead.
If an asteroid hits, you will be dead.
If your city literally drops off in the ocean, you will be dead.
If military descends on your town to kill everyone, then you are already dead.
So, don’t worry about it.
If you happen to be one of those “one in a million” survivors, then you can worry about it after the fact.
Put your time and effort into the normal every day junk that can plague the city, stuff that doesn’t hit your directly, and stuff that you can see
coming. Stuff where you and the rest of your peps will most likely survive, but the infrastructure won’t.
Distant nuke strikes.
Chemical and bio attacks.
If you are in a house that is one of those relatively new houses that is almost air tight, with a fresh air supply system, then prepping for a distant
nuke strike, or chem, and bio attacks is relatively easy.
Just install a system that blocks off the fresh air supply on demand. If the radioactive fallout, or chemical agents pass through your area, then lock
the doors, turn off the fresh air supply, and lock yourselves in until the threat passes.
Everything else is just the normal stuff. Fuel, food, water, lighting, hunting and camping supplies.
Extra fuel for car, generator, cooking, heating, and lighting.
Food to eat.
Water to drink
Light to see by.
Hunting equipment to get food and defend yourself with.
And camping and backpacking equipment to sleep in, carry some of the prestated stuff is you don’t have use of a car or your house.
That will cover you for most stuff.
Don’t worry about trying to hide in the forest if the government comes after the people. They will find you sooner or later, and that will be that.
You can’t hide forever. So don’t prep for dead end scenarios. It is a waste of time.
