I am a man and would like to say that it is a good idea to work on strength building and you got it. Lifting and exercise is great for muscle building
You should seek out someone trust worthy perhaps another woman of similar age and strength. Now remember this is someone you need to know inside and
When people are faced with survival they tend to become needy and not so self suffient. Watch survivor and watch home some of the people react to
being out there in the bush. They would rather lay there and starve and complain. This is what you definetly want to avoid. You need someone who is
going to be helpful and willing to do what it takes to survive.
Find someone who is independent and gets by on their own without any help from others. You do not want to have to take care of someone and split your
food with them if they cannot do the tasks. You need to find your equal be it a man or a woman.
You can stock up on canned goods which can last several years. Everytime you go to the market buy one or two extra cans of beef stew, corn or potatoe
chowder canned vegatables.
You will need protein, vegetables, rice for carbs and water,
Some sort of heat source. Wood/fire pit
I like to stock up on everything.
I would buy some heavy duty stainless steel camping cups which are good for heating up stuff.
My wife and I are setting up a chicken coup this spring so we can get some hens and get our own eggs.
My neighbor up the road. he built hi daughter what appears to be a shed surrended by a 7 foot chainlink fence with a gate. She has about 15 hens and
has a small little thing going where she sells them to the neighbors for $1.00 a dozen. I had her delever some to test them out and believe me they
were unbeliveable and very fresh. To feed them is easy you cane buy them a mix blend or you can feed them ground up last years corn which you can dry
out just put it in your attic in the summer or a hot place to dry it out. Yummy eggs...
Sometimes when I'm out on the go and I have to grab fast food as a last resort. I grab a huge stack or salt, pepper mustard ketchup and whatever they
have. Its free right. Grab a handfull.
When you get home get a box and label it condiments. Put about 4 of 5 freezer ziplocks inside. In each bag place a desicant pack to keep out moisture.
You can buy them of the next time you open an asprine bottle of pill bottle of any type take the desicant pack out and keep it and use it to keep the
moisture out of your supplies.
Everything taste better with salt and pepper.
Every little thing helps. Think of it like camping in the wilderness.
What do i need.
Warm clothes cool clothes
Hunting gear, fishing pole
Fire wood dried out or look for types that burn green like ash. Fallen trees are good sources of dried out wood.
Dry are to store your fire wood is a must.
Bottle of clorox bleach unscented original only. Eye dropper 1 to 2 drops per gallon I think are suffient.
Antispetic in a bottle Johnson and johnson has one which has lidocain in it which is good.
It is like a squirt bottle where if you need to irrigate a wound you could squeeze the bottle hard and get a good stream of pressure without wasting
Antibiotic cream. neosporin or bacitracin are great.
Steri strips like butter fly stiches and super glue type bandage. I love this stuff. Just rember not to glue the entire wound shut and you may seal in
bacteria. If you have a large cut glue most of it shut but leave a opening so the wound can heal from the inside out. your body can do most of the
healing for you just dont seal the wound shut leave a weep hole for pus to escape.
Knife with a honing stone for shapening
I also have a butan torch hand held and a box of butan refills. which would be enough to ligh a fire for a couple of years. Go to you hardware store
and ask for Ronson butna lighter refiller most carry it.True value home depot lowes.
You dont need to build a comaound or anything like that. Just enough supplies to survive about 2 to 3 years living off the land.
If you could build a smoker of buy a smoker that would be great for smoking fish and meat and would keep it from going bad. Nothing like Venison
jerkey or wild turkey jerkey.
A must on the list is is stok up on you booze. I dont know about you but when the # hits the fan your not going to be able to go to the store and buy
a 18 pack or box of wine.
4 bottles vodka
4 bottles of rum. Captain morgans only.
got to be able to sail with the captian if you know what I mean.
4 bottles of sambucca
A shot or 2 before bed will help you sleep.
Lets see what else would you need.
Wind up radio with charger adapter.
Rechargeable AA,AAA and a couple of head mounted stapped to your head flash lights. LED type only.
These are thing you need to add to a list and just slowly accumulate over time . Don't go out and try to buy this all at once but just start
Zip loc gallon freezer bags are great for storing stuff.
Obviously guns and ammo if you can obtain it legally.
Wind up recharger
