A few months ago, I began to buy Silver and Gold like crazy, until I realized that in a true SHTF scenario a few pounds of metal were as worthless as money, you cant eat it or wear it and if you don't have a fire strong enough, it is pretty much worthless. I came to the conclusion that the most important things for survival were water, food and shelter, so I decided to invest in a good quality dehydrator, a vacuum sealer and a few hundred oxygen absorber packs, these three items combined will make your food last for years. I will begin buying and packaging the food in bulk so I have something to trade. Any ideas on what else to stock up on?
