    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    Sounds like he is trying to. Coming here was a pretty good first step.

    I see homeless people on bikes with those trailers people use to haul their small children with them. It might be a good idea to be prepared to look like one of them on your way out of town. You can haul a decent amount of food and water as long as it is concealed. A couple cans of spray paint can make a bike look less than desirable pretty quickly. Just a couple ideas.

    I always like to think of it as a timeline. What do I have to have to survive in the next ten seconds, ten minutes, ten hours.....? For ten seconds, you have to have air to breath. Ten minutes could mean your personal safety if out in the open, in the city. Bad guys will resort to evil very quickly in a SHTF environment. Or, if it's cold, shelter could be the second objective. Survival manuals will tell you that you can survive without water for a few days and food for a few weeks. Create your own timeline and what you need to acquire to meet your objectives, in the order of importance.

    Scour this forum to get references to survival manuals. Go to your library, read and learn. Your mind is your biggest asset.

    Lastly, you will not be prepared over night. It's a marathon, not a fifty yard dash. Stay at it and you will get there. Keep us posted on your progress.
