Main thing we focus on is food and ammo. Lots and lots of both. We need to restock our foodsupply tho. Ever few years we donate the can food to Southaven Samaritans. And restock our supply.

Next is an AR15 and about 10,000 rounds.

I don't think most of us here would consider stocking up on ammo with the thought to steal what we need but for self defense and hunting. An EMP fries everything with a chip that's not shielded. What I read said that a single nuke set off over the east coast at 250 miles high would fry our power grid and all unshielded electronics almost to California.

My survival plans involve a bronco 2 and a shitload of ammo.

my survival plans don't involve hunkering down, they involve drifting, which may work better.

I'm not gonna say I wouldn't steal if it was life or death for my family.. Bc things in that kind of situation would get weird and weird outcomes will happen. As long as I could rely on hunting to feed my family then I'd go that route.

But yes the main point would be self defense and hunting.

if everone is hunting at once, with a large population, game will get thin.. best plan is to get land and grow your own food, get your friends and family together to defend it and offer to trade with people if they dont try to shoot you, if they do, then turn em into manure... reminds me of the acient "ant and the grasshoper" story..

To have any chances of survival you will have to get as far away from big population places, when ppl get cold and houngry they will put their hands on your stuff without thinking about it, and if they can, they will kill you to get what they want.

1) Home preparedness (food, water, heat, electric)

-Wood burning furnace (ducted through out the house)
-Cistern setup is what our house has, can haul your own water in and store/pump it.
-Run a diesel generator on bio-fuel

2) Vehicle preparedness (equipment, setup, supplies)
3) The perfect survival/bug-out vehicle (mini, fullsize, pickup, suv, other)

-A 4wd version of my 95' dodge diesel with a 'work' style canopy. Enough 4wd ability for most area's and enough storage for gear/parts and mileage to keep you sustained for long periods of time, I can pull over 600miles/1000km to a tank and it'll run on biodiesel as well.

Like this but older with the 12V, and the compartment doors where the windows are....

What if on this big chuck of land you trap and breed hogs? Lol I realize you'd have to feed them but they'll feel you.

Or cattle.. Eats grass.. Gives you beef. Just have to keep others from killing or stealing them
