I find it hard to fathom that members of this website, of all places, are shown every time they come here WHY it is soooo important to have a plan and prepare for when TSHTF, and yet they arent.

I'm not, i dont know what coming. but when it comes then i'll know. if i'm willed to live then somehow i will survive if not then so be it. whats the point of preparing when you might die anyway. let things sort themselves out.
i'll probably loot. in times of chaos its better when you have nothing to lose!

I must say...after reading and hearing so much...confusion sets in. Bring this and that, I must admit it's making my head spin. My wife and I are very new (noobs) to this. Any and all help is appreciated, Like I tell my kids K.I.S.S.

i'm all prepared. All the stuff is all over the place. All i have to do is go find it, and most likely it is in your house. Easy pickens. So keep supplies up for me. Some houses may offer less and i may need more. I will come to get it in the middle of the night when you are sleeping. You have to sleep sometime, you know. Then, when i figured that i have enough stuff that i need, i just move on to the next house.

I live in a small apartment in a big city. Even so, I've managed to stash away about 6 months' food and water. If whatever it is that happens goes on longer than that I figure its enough of a problem that I'd be screwed either way so there is no point worrying about it.
