grenades, lots of grenades




Don't forget the bazookas. Those tanks will probably be a real hassle in any aftermath.

Hemp plants. They are durable, grow like a weed, provide alternative to buying cotton clothing and can also be used medicinally, although I recommend water, exercise, the outdoors and vegetables as the easiest way to feel better.

I would never have thought of stock piling flowers, would that be dried flowers? as fresh ones wouldn't keep very long.
But a splash of colour would be good for morale.

Caching food is always a better idea than leaving it out in the open in your home.

I've noticed lately that the best before dates on some stuff is getting closer and closer. What I mean is that when I go to the store I always look at the can on the shelf and I pick the ones with the furthest away best before date. It used to be that you could find canned goods with 1 year away dates, lately all I've found is dates that are 2-3 months away and vitamins the other day at Costco I noticed the best I could find was 1 month. Anyone else notice this or is it just more a regional issue>

Also what to stockpile depends on if your primarily planning on taking off or bunkering down in your home.


Toilet paper is one to make sure you have as it has a multitude of uses.

fresh underwear, socks ( very important so ive learned, during WWI the condition trench foot was introduced. having to wear boots and wet socks, without letting air get at yuor fet brought gang green infections) especially bran new DRY socks.
small assortment of stainless steel pots and pans. stay clear of that dupont laced stuff..it will cause cause cancer as it eventully gets scraped and flakes off the pots and pans.
first aid book, so you know how to make a proper dressing for a wound,stitching, or how ot dress and suspend a broken arm or leg
ide recoomend a red lens for a flashlight..even cheap red seran wrap will do. much harder to detect the color red at night, but jsut enough so you can see in front of you. Also hard for intruders to detect you, as opposed to a yellow ro white beam of light lighting the surrounding area up like an xmas tree
myabe a small infaltbale raft or boat..small axe, too dig a tree trunk out to make a boat.
machete



yup, a machete would be a tool i would definitely have a few of as well as as other knives

And if you don't have electricity to cook??? You forgot candles/matches... bottled water... canned goods (sardines in oil, crackers, canned beans and pumpkin...) Pumpkin? Yes, pumpkin. It's about the healthiest canned vegetable there is and it's anti-inflammatory. Things you should consider if survival becomes a long-term situation.

youtube Alternator generators or neodymium generators and that will give you a idea where to start also a Fresnel Lens Can Be EXTREMELY HELPFUL!! you can buy alternators for cheap at any auto store the wire can easily be purchased as Romex wire at home depot..and the Magnets take a little hunting on the web but you can buy super magnets online 1 per Household...Be extremely careful with the Magnets because when the say Super they mean super dangerous!!!!..oh yeah and Deep Cycle car or boat batterys are awesome for holding a charge and take solar/alternator charges extremely well but use the thickest gauge of wire you can find because the resistance is where you'll lose a great deal of your daily charge..less resistance/Ohms you have the longer you'll have power.

For fire matches and the like will last you if your planning on being in your home but if you have to go mobile a magnesium stick is the way to go. One side magnesium and the other flint to spark it. Get a couple and they should last you a while. Also items for barter like cigs and coffee and TP will come in handy.

Magnesium deff handy if travelling and need ta start a fire at night..but if your travelling during the day or stationary a good magnifying glass like a small fresnel lens is priceless! also a great weapon if need be...they will start fires under any condition except darkness and if your coals went out an your trying to start a fire at night at base camp then resort to magnesium..also Fresnel Lens can boil water instantly and smelt metals if needed

Hi! You can mix chopped sqirrel or canned chicken in with Ryamen noodle soup. Raw eggs dropped in while it's boiling (think egg drop soup), cut up onions, etc... make it a healthier simple meal.
Everyone should watch one of those u tube videos on how to clean a squirrel. I did that last week. I always thought they were cute and would be a problem to eat. By the time they are cleaned and cooked they looked more like chicken.

Nice list. I think all you left out was a couple cigars and a aromatherapy candle.

Seriously, It's really been on my mine to start a cache. Oh - I think I would also add a pump action shotgun - I'm not that good of a shot yet.
