Hello everyone, I would like to begin by saying if you DO NOT believe that some type of disaster is looming then do not even bother reading this post. While noone knows exactly when the next big disaster will strike, we all must agree that at some point something huge could happen. So im making this thread for people to see what type of supplies I personally have in my possession and ready for use. Let me start by saying in an emergency the food stores will prob be out of food within the 1st day of the emergency/disaster. So to simply say you will go to the store when it happens will be no good. You will have to deal with massive panic, people fighting and possibly killing each other, and massive looting that could include people stealing directly from you.
So to start, you are going to need some type of protection for yourself and your family. The form of protection is up to you. I personally choose guns because the seem like the most reliable form of self protection. When the shtf people will not care about laws, you or your personal freedoms, they will only care about what must be done to survive. That being the case I say now is the time to get your EPK or Survival kit, or bob ready.
I will list the supplies in mine so you can understand a basic starting point, if anyone has any other suggestions for me please let me know.

1. Enough food for you and your family for at least 3 months. If supply lines are broken you can expect that food will not be available for purchase for an extended period of time. I personally have a 3-6 month supply of non perishable goods for immediate consumption. Also have enough water to drink. This cannot be understated. Water is more important than food, you will die withouth drinking water within a week or two. I personally have 12 cases of bottled water and 50 gallons of purified water. Now this isnt even enough for my family for a months time, but on a side note there is a freshwater stream 300 yards or so from my house. So that will be my water supply when the shtf.

2. Survival items. This can range from medical supplies to supplies to gather food(fishing poles, hunting traps, etc.) The need to aquire food from a source locally cannot go without saying. Firewood is another big one, how will you stay warm in the winter without heat? So wood or some other type of fuel is neccessary along with a way to safely burn that fuel. Also alot of clothing and shoes are neccessary should the disaster/emergency last a prolonged period of time. Nothing worse than being without things to cover you body for protection.

3. The convienencies that you would like. This could range from portable lighting to other things to make your life more comfortable without power.

4. Hand tools, this is a very important one. Without being able to rely on other people to fix things for you, its on you to fix things. So things like hammers, wrenches, sockets, screwdrivers etc are very important.

5. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO ME! Seeds for planting. I personally bought 1/2 a million different types of vegatable seeds for planting in an extended emergency. I bought these off ebay for only 73 dollars and this could be the most important thing for everyone. I have enough NGM modified seeds to last my family and more for a lifetime. Also get the tools neccessary to cultivate the land, such as ho's, shovels, rakes and more.

6. FEMA and other agencies say that you should have a battery powered radio to stay in touch with what is occuring nationally.

While this list is not all comprehensive this is a majority of what will be neccessary for survival for an extended period of time should society collapse. Also on a side note, should the shtf, I will need help farming all the vegatables that I will be planting so come check me out in Saylorsburg PA if you need refuge. Be prepared to work to earn your living though there will be no free rides. I have enough plants for aprox 30 plus acres and that will require alot of manpower. If anyone has anything to add to this list feel free to do so.


Also I made this list so you can get a basic starting point of things that you will need. Dont come on here bashing me if you dont like my post just get off it. Also another benifit to farming is that it will attract tons of wildlife (deer, groundhogs, and more.) for hunting for your meat consumption. Also salts to cure the meat. I will post more survival techniques on later posts. Thanks for reading and I look forward to your feedback. Also the link takes you to my facebook page to view my seeds and other survival items.

I'll just wait for meltdown to occur and fall into some gang of hungry robin hoods, or start one.
No point in panicking and spending what I don't have, on anything I won't be using and need like right now.

Plus, what with hyperinflation, the Sheriff of Nottingham will be busy trying to find food too, so, opportunity for Robin hoodism will likely present.

Hyperinflation has supposedly been happening for the past 3-4 years...I'm getting tired of waiting.

Please stop with the fear mongering.

hyperinflation will occur when shtf, that is just high regular inflation you are talking about, when shtf you can expect a 20 lb bag of rice to shoot from 20 dollars to 200 plus... so yeah hyperinflation isnt occuring yet and wont start until the emergency really starts.

it takes years to build up speed, its starting, go to your local food market and tell me costs are not up.... Real inflation is at 12% right now!

I have been collecting food and water since last March. We live in a rural area and have a well, but it is run with electricity. Last February when the temps here dropped to around zero with a windchill of minus 20, our well, which is not covered by a well house, froze solid so we had no water. I have been storing water in used milk jugs so that we have water for toilets, bathing, etc. I tried going potty out in the field with the wind howling on my backside, it wasn't a good experience. I also buy bottled water for drinking, which is stored in our underground shelter.

I got plenty of food. We got lots of ammo and some good rifles / shotguns. We also are connected with farmers and off-the-gridders in the area who have chickens, goats, cows, etc. I purchased lots of food items for bartering when they were cheaper (sugar, cocoa, coffee, flour).

My only concern is that our house was constructed as all electric in 1974. It has no fireplace or wood stove. I am concerned that, if TSHTF in the dead of winter, we'll freeze unless we figure out a way to bring heat into at least one room. We have considered a generator, but my husband is dragging his feet on it due to the cost, and besides, those only last as long as one has fuel to operate them.

Anybody have any ideas on how to stay warm in our situation?

I agree, real inflation(not hyperinflation) is what that guy is talking about, so he is obviously not educated on what hyperinflation really is. Supply and demand deems when the demand for food goes through the roof, so will the price thats hyperinflation.

I already stated in the op that I nor many others do not know what or when it will occur, just that there is a probability that it will occur. thanks for reading so thouroughly that you could have answered you own question just by reading the opening post!

I'd love to know.

Just and idea but Kerosene heater and kerosene is pretty cheap and stores a long time. My great grandmother lived in a cottage where all she did was burn kerosene for years... and she lived to be 83 so I dont wanna hear the fumes are that bad for you, cause obviously it wasnt that bad for her.

Is all that food you are buying going to be good "years" from now???

I know some things can last a long time....but "years"??? Seems like you are just wasting money if you are trying to plan for "years" in advance.

no, all my food is freeze dried in a air tight # 10 cans. Its self life is 20-30 years depending on your storage conditions. If nothing happens ill have food to eat later.
