Are you truly independent? Do you have the skills? Can you hunt, grow a garden, can food, sew-knit, live off the land? Are you ready? Do you possess the "lost" skills? Our family is ready. In obama's words, "bring it on". Once the economy collapses, I'll be here longer than the liberals and their pampered lives.
That is classified, if I told you then you know what will happen next.....
Keep your plans secret, every leach will be at your door if they know what you’re doing.
Leech?!? Try thief, burglar, thug, law enforcement officer...
I'm facing retirement in a few years, but have children and grandchildren.
What is a good source of info to start preparing oneself?
Scotch, wine, and popcorn.
Learn First Aid and CPR (Red Cross has classes)
Stock up three weeks worth of food and water.
Expect no help from Obama and his crew.
Have some cash hidden at home—banks may not be up and running.
Get all your pictures and documents copied and stored in a safe place.
Get a gun.
NO MATTER WHAT
so we need a few chickens...a few pigs, a goat and a cow....
I’m waiting for Ted Nugent to open a survival training school I can enroll in.
Absolutely! Food, water, propane, lamps, heaters, fans, generator, toilet items, pharma’s, protective masks & clothing, ammo, veggie & fruit seeds, fertilizer, & uv lights.
Once again, the dumbass libs come up with some “unintended consequences”. Wildlife is going to take a pretty serious hit while ObamaNation is in effect. LOL!
To a certain extent, and I’m not saying this to pick on you or anybody else, but there is a real, significant, possibly fatal difference between conception and reality.
Grow a garden?
I imagine there are some people out there with enough land, enough seed stored, enough southern exposure, etc that they could grow a garden and live off it... until about October...
The ONLY thing most people should think about garden-wise is growing as much as possible to supplement what you have stored.
Same goes for water. Fortunately, I live in the soggiest part of the world, I do have quite a bit of water stored, and more is available.
But if I lived in New Mexico or Arizona or Texas or any of the warmer, drier places, I would do EVERYTHING POSSIBLE to store AS MUCH WATER AS I POSSIBLY COULD!
It’s hard to say how to prepare because different events need different plans.
But if it is a significant type of event, whether it’s EMP, or BIO attack, or fuel supply, or something that is violently disruptive, I would imagine it would not take very long for the whole mess to go down the tubes. How long ca we expect the power to stay on if there was a bio attack and everybody (who had survived it) was hunkered down and not going out to fix power lines no matter what?
Not long I would bet.
I’m watching your place on Google Earth. You think that’s a lot of firewood?
I recently rearranged, edited, and added to the LDS Preparedness Manual compiled by Christopher Parrett. My efforts can be download here:
Friday Night Fun Thread
several guns.....and a LOT of ammo.
.....plus tents, tarps, tools, etc. I’ve made sure we can last maybe 3 full months, maybe longer when we plant.
