I can toss out my own outlook and how it's evolved over time. When I first began prep'ing a few years ago and well before I left trucking, money
wasn't an issue at this level of spending. At one point I had 35 rifles and 8 handguns..on about 15,000 rounds total for Ammo. That was just
firearms... Food for over 12 months..eating comfy and downright well for primitive conditions expected with electricity. Yeah... I went all out and
That was many sales ago and most of that paranoid stuff has been sold since. Umm... The weapons and ammo alone, I had to admit one day, were just flat
stupid. I can personally shoot..HOW many guns at once? I need a 'gun for every imaginable occasion' for...what reason? I realized....that approach
was going to do one thing in all likelihood.
That thinking and turtle approach was going to do an outstanding job of tying my family and I to THIS location so totally and irreversibly, we'd be
off than most if, for ANY reason, this area of the nation or even just region of my state becomes unworkable to stay in for any reason.
After having that side of things hit me like a freight train one night......I wonder how many others have considered that?
Now? It's shifted into having everything that can be had in a portable arrangement without a vehicle. Basically...what it WILL be if, again, we
can't stay here for contamination, environmental or other reasons no one can even imagine in these quiet and peaceful times. Things like Water
FILTERS...not water bottles..and the materials to hunt with anything from snares to blowguns (it's a pipe...any pipe of the right diameter will
do...although smokers need not bother trying. lol)
I still have my shelves of food and water w/ medicines and more to last a SOLID few months.. and 6 if we rough it hard for sheltering in place.
Everything else? We have the tools to GET what we need now, indefinitely. Not just watch the shelves run lower and lower each day...knowing the end
