What will you chose to carry... What tools, weapons, personal products and anything else you feel needed for end of the world scenario and the reason why that gear is needed? Or you just accept the outcome ?

My mind should be my greatest survival asset. If I can't make it improvising and adapting as I go, I don't think I can make it at all.

That's a pretty open question...all depends on the specific event. If truly the end, that's different than a survival situation... All you can do then is have drug and alcohol fueled orgies while eating great food....

If a situation for survival, that's a bit different. All depends on the event. There are TONS of threads here on what to have though, many right on this page...


Search on BOB (Bug Out Bag)..to see some good lists.

if its end of the world then as much beer as i can carry and f--- it and i'll see you on the other side as theres no point really getting all backwoods survival mode if theres a meteor the size of a very large expletive coming down and going to kill us all

but if its not eotw then a quick visit to the local country sports shop to relieve them of as many shotguns and all their ammo i can fit into the car, no point paying for it upfront as the shops only 20 mins away and every other idiot will be raiding for reeboks etc

I guess, sleeping bag, boots, survival knife, nothing out of the ordinary, but I often find myself thinking "what if it happened NOW?", while I'm in no position of taking any of my gear, which may get buried, burned or lost in a flood. That made me change my thinking a bit to what I've posted in my previous thread. So IF I survive the first "impact" (or whatever it is), the most important thing from then on will be being able to adapt and improvise with whatever I can find and work with.

If indeed 'the end' then... what can we carry that would change that? If indeed the end, what world would we then find for our survival that we could even hope for?

When this day comes, weapons will have no meaning. Tools will have no use. The 'end' is... well, the end, lol.

How many are ready for that? How many are ready for that day when the end is truly, the end?

OP if you're talking about backpack survival it's unattainable by 99.5% of the population in a long term sense.

I've ceased to have a bugout bag and graduated more towards the bugout truck. Katrina taught me that. You simply cannot carry all of what you need. Why not "just the essentials?" because 200 million people are going to be doing the exact same thing you're doing with the same equipment list, but they might not be hindered by your morals. You might not kill them for their can of green beans but I'm sure after the fourth day of not eating they'll start asking themselves if a nice chunk of long pig should be the main course.

I'm with Gazrok. What to bring for the end of the world is a dynamic question and the answer should change with the particulars of the question.

For example, is the UN sending China to repossess the US (
) Different equipment list.

Major pandemic? Different list.
Economic collapse? different list.

See where I'm going with this?

Well said. If anyone is able to survive such a disaster, what would be playing on his mind ?

Knowledge.
Primitive man had it...we lost it.
Its time to arm ourselves with old skills.
Other peoples started all this for us...its our job to continue it as a species.


I agree with Gazrok....check this forum and you will see there is plenty of useful information over many years.

Here is my contribution to your thread OP.

i'd just head to a quiet place...unpack enough beers and some snacks etc and work out where the ends going to appear from enjoy the final moments, don't need anything and wouldn't want anything, why lug a 100lb's of guns/ammo/water filtration kits/knives etc when in 5 mins you're gonna be toast anyway since this is the end of the world and i'm gonna die but the only difference with me any my American cousins is they'll go down waving the flag and brandishing a gun going hell yeh while i go in a polite english voice..typical just as the second test has started and we're 50 for 0 against the aussies

WEAPONS - Pistol (.22) with Ammo (.22 is easy to carry a lot of ammo), Good Kabar Knife, Machete (holster and sheaths)
TOOLS - Gerber Multi-Tool, Swiss Army Knife, Duct Tape, Wire Saw, Folding Saw, Wire, Para-cord, Fishing Wire
FIRE - Lighters, Water/Windproof Matches, Flint & Steel

Keep in mind, my goal is to make it home, which may take a few days on foot, as I have an hour commute.
