Wow, 16-20 months.... Good to be on a ranch I guess. It did give me some other things to think about though. I don't have a "bunker", but don't think
I really need one. I definitely need to stock more fuel, but that's one expensive investment (especially keeping the fuel viable long term). We've
started year-round gardening efforts, so that helped, along with canning, etc.
One suggestion was currency, but I just can't see that being a desired item in a SHTF scenario. To me, cigarettes (something I don't use, but that are
small, portable, and easily divided, and highly desired by others), are a much more sound currency item.
While I do have a 4wd diesel vehicle (with a HUGE extra gas tank), it isn't EMP hardened, so something to check into. I'm surprised it didn't mention
horses, as in an EMP event, we could fall back on those for transport...though we'd have to expand our territory for more grazing area (expensive now,
but in a SHTF event, we could easily absorb the adjacent orchard...
Only 4-8 months?! Looks like I need more food and ammo
Probably more off the water questions. I have a well, lots of stored water not in the well, and a nearby pond and spring, so that's probably one of
the biggies for my duration score. Of course, none of the questions took raiding into account or partnerships with neighbors, etc...something that is
very big out here in the country, when disaster strikes.
I too ain't too heavy in the power department, except for lots of wood. With a diesel generator even, we wouldn't be able to power it very long. Like
another said though, not a real big concern. (and that could be foraged).
