Are you suggesting the option of suicide being apart of a survival kit?

Well, I'm sure every prepper has a knife and some kind of rope, so the option is always there.

A horse drawn plough, it can be drawn (pulled) by almost any 4 legged animal, or multiples of the two legged type.
Plus a seed machine, unless you want to scatter the seed by hand, seed being wheat, rye, corn, etc. digging using a spade is more tiring than using a plough, someone else does the work!
An acre is judged to provide enough food for one year for 5 people, an acre being 220 yards by 220 yards (a square)
Two horses can plough one acre in one day with a single shire plough. Oxen were once used for ploughing, but I don't know the figures for oxen.

The major problems with long term survival planning is Expiry date of some if not many of stored supplies. One can regularly updates it, but how many times should you update is the question?

Disease is my biggest fear.... I know I don't have the money/knowledge to survive that.

As far as power plants, you can pull up maps online along with prevailing wiND overlays to get an idea.

Also once upon a time you could get that information from your county seat as well in the states.

But asking now a days will probably get you a visit from the fed.

Yes and first and foremost if a person doesn't feel they could grab a pack, a 22 rifle and head out the back door and survive then they are going to have problems. Most of the situations talked about on this thread are really more traditional living without modern technology support. That may be communal and maybe not but it is stationary and represents only the loss of certain things like electric, gasoline, supermarkets ect.

Yup lots of folks forget the mental aspects of survival, I've got some simple games in my pack. Plus my dog are figured into my survival plan.. Partly because they are hunting dogs.. Partly when late at night and the depression is threatening the normalcy of a dog will help.
