I think I have the knowledge and know how to wing it should i need to.
As a kentucky boy, born and raised I have a lot of experience.
I guaged this recently actually. I was in Chicago hanging with some friends and they decided to start a campfire.
Since we were in a small yard near the city there wasn't much to burn.. they started with some cardboard and garbage.. after a while they pooled their
money together. They sent a fellow after some material for a fire. He came back with a bag of Charcoal! Of course that was retarded and after my
friend and I watched in silent amusement as he threw it on the fire and the bag burned off around the briskets, which turned hot. Eventually we helped
and dried some nearby branches and gave him a real fire.
I have acres of land, a fishpond stocked with large mouth bass and my 20 year old brother is a gun enthusiast interested in getting a license and
opening a store for guns and gun repairs. (In my opinion and all i need is) my own preparation is a couple of gallons for fresh water, some canned
food that is not particularly put back ( we just have stocked cabinets) plenty of guns to hunt all game, and just the know how that isn't necessarily
conspiracy or scenario prescribed, but the benefit of living in the country.
We will be fine.
If you are concerned and on a budget let me help you. This is if tshtf absolutely and there was most likely a natural disaster or an enemy country
really did a number on us.. forget conspiracies and false flags those are inexplicable scenarios.
Here is what you need.
A small shot gun for bird 20 gauge is fine,
A rifle, i would suggest an old school mosin nagant as they are cheap and accurate. They will take deer and most large game and will run you between
80 and 140 bucks.
4 or 5 gallon jugs of water if you need more you are in a world of sh*t anyway.
dried pasta. cans of soup. packets of seed. a tarp, a shovel. matches.
ibuprofen, a bottle of amoxicilan(sp?).
and honestly you are set.
People have these bug out bags.. you dont need them.
you need what I said and that's all.
disclaimer.. i'm drunk and may add more later.. but I think im pretty dead on... no pun srsly.
