    My area people not ready for disaster. After day three they would start to roam. I would bug out to a safe place by day three.

    I live in an urban area, so bugging out day one is not a good thing. Too many people would see where i was going and what i have with me. There’s really not much room to hunt, so i supplement by going to the range and making sure i know my firearm front to back. But it’s always nice to know where i stand so i can improve.

    Be prepared boy, BE PREPARED!!! Stick with no more than 4 caliber firearms, makes for easy pack and go, wit at least 3000 rnds combined. 4×4 is a requirement so any road or path is available to you. Storable food and water. And a guilla suit makes the best camouflage. 3 pre planned escape plans. 3 heat sources. Duck tape, trash bags, small & large tarp, 2 pair of boots each, min 100 ft of rope, min 4 5gal cans of gasoline, silencer/supressor for hunting/defense, knowledge of survival tactics in trapping, hunting, self defense, and tracking, 10 led flashlights with many reloadstudents of batteries, first aid kit, and most of all stay calm and keep constant eye on surroundings.

      You forgot crank/solar radios for locating anyone still ALIVE!!!! And how about a generator and snow shoes not to mention tents, extreme
      cold sleeping bags, a GPS unit not forgetting lots of warm, winter clothing. MOST IMPORTANTLY, LIFE STRAWS OR OTHER TYPES OF WATER PURIFIERS!!!!

    While, at first, my wife jeered me a bit and called my meager preps my “Zombie Gear”, she regularly brings some small item or two to add to them. Lately, she brings me medical items she finds on sale while she is at the local pharmacy. Also, at every occation that requires a gift, at least one will be something for the “Zombie Bag”. I must admit, it’s alot more fun when me wife and I work on preps together. I think these short quizes helps all to think about things we could easily overlook, like back-up medications and preps for the dogs, which I feel is an invaluable prep for survival! A well trained dog, or two, could easily save your, or a loved one’s, life!

    You never know where or when a desaster will happen and how long you will be in need. Loss of your Home changes everything your every thought about what you need and things you want. You may need to help family or friends. Being prepared is just plane smart.

    some of your answers….. i don’t have a gun so therefore i cannot hunt (#5) this does not however lessen my ability to identify , gather and eat wild plants, snare animals or fish, and generally be a savvy shopper who has a wicked cool stuffed pantry so my family will eat well long after the other starve to death for lack of pringles. Not that any of this will stop me should i acquire a gun and need to use it for some steak on the hoof. #6 > your main bug out bag should not be geared for a couple days. you should have a 3 day pack , and a serious all out pack, that has the long term stuff in it. Being prepared for LONGER is a wise idea. #8 yes you CAN use bleach to purify your water. Boiling water sometimes is worse as it concentrates contaminants. Depending on the situation either is a valid answer. ( But in my case i should have answered boiling, as i will be using clean surface water.) #10 um. there are several conditions that dr’s will not recommend that you stop taking your meds for > hypothyroidism, high blood pressure, anti seizure, bi polar/anti depressants….it is NOT smart to stop taking some of these meds and suffer dire health consequences when help is not available. ( idiot!) SO. Keep your bottles full, ask for a 3 month prescription, when you refill sock a few more away just in case there is an emergency and the pharmacy is closed for say… a month, and keep a copy of your prescriptions ( know exactly what you are taking!!) so that should there be a disaster in your area, or if you have to relocate you can get refills asap!

    I believe that it said some times. So some times it’s better to stay for awhile and assess the situation. Food we to have at least one year supply of food and water if possible. The LDS church has been telling everyone to have this much on hand for a long time, you don’t hear much about anymore from them so if you don’t have it I guess your sol. It’s just like a lot of places right now are not getting any releaf to the there disasters right away more than 7 days have gone by for any help. Those that have more will win in the long run. Boy scout Moto, Be prepared. Stop, look and listen the answers will come. You all be safe k.

    I’m ready, people around me think I’m crazy. I pray I am.
    I wonder if things happen I get apologizes, definitely they will pay for years of criticism .ha ha
    When I said I will protect my baby girl I meant it. I bought in a very rural town. Estimate pop 200 max. Most are very good people. Only very few snowflakes.
    People need to remember we are not the crazy ones, they are. If there are no chances for anything going wrong stop paying all that money for car and home insurance.

    I live in a wooded area and I’m pretty sure most of my neighbors would be willing to band together to hunt and form a ring of protection. We all live along a creek so water wouldn’t be an issue. But really, how long are we talking about? An EMP attack could take years to recover from. Not sure anyone is prepared for such an extended length of time.

    Your questions make some assumptions that are not correct for everybody. In some cases, the right answer – for me and for many other people – is not among the choices you’ve listed. For example, few people who live in urban areas have fireplaces, so your recommendation to stock up on firewood is not useful to us.
