8.) oh and for me I have to add to my list that I really should find me a survival guy....a girl has to admit that in it doesn't hurt to have the
right guy by her side ! I'm independent but dont mind admitting two is better than one especially wtshtf!
This is one of the more sane suggestions I've seen on this thread.
If the SHTF I'm bugging out asap to the desert. Night vision would be great to have mounted to a rifle for hunting at night. What I would be most
concerned about is:
5: Medical supplies
6: Communications (radio / 2-way radio / cell / etc...)
If you're at all concerned about the "worst case scenario", then have a plan in place. Prep as much as you can (do you have at least 6 months
worth of food and water?). What if there's an EMP strike? Do you have a BOB that you can grab and go? Do you have your important documents backed
up somewhere? Do you have a stock of vitamins? Do you have cash on hand? Do you have barter items (gold / alcohol / coffee / medication / etc...)?
Are you armed?
If you're bugging out, check out the following books:
SAS Survival Handbook by John 'lofty' Wiseman
U.S. Air Force Survival Handbook (ISBN-10: 1602392455)
Keep your vehicle gassed up. Keep a supply of extra gas at home. Cycle though your gasoline stocks.
Overreacting? Perhaps. But given last week's complete power outage of the entire Southern California area, it's obvious how easy it would be to
disrupt society enough to break it down completely. I'd rather be prepared and never have to use it than be sitting on my thumbs when push comes to
Prepping doesn't come easy. It takes many months to have the basics covered. My advice is to start gathering supplies as soon as possible. Buy a
few extra cans of soup every time you go to the store. Stock up on dry goods. Get a 5 gallon container of water. One step at a time, and eventually
you'll be ready to hunker down or bug out if required.
Oh...and get a membership to Costco. They stock some great long-term food solutions, and they're amazingly cheap compared to your local grocery
store. I can't recommend Costco enough!
