Can you just recite the cliff notes version in two or three sentences?
May God bless,
This is a discussion on Could you help me with a short term prepping plan, no one in my family seems to care. within the General Prepper and Survival Talk forums, part of the Survivalist, Prepper, Bushcrafter, Forest Rangers category; Originally Posted by Wounded Eagle Hey yall, i got a wicked research paper on the " Origin " of the SARS CVID 19 virus from ...
Come on guys, stop telling Wounded Eagle to ditch his lady. Many of our ladies are at a different mental state about prepping than we are and simply tolerate our prepping habits to keep peace in the house.
Wounded Eagle, Start by keeping at least 2-3 weeks of easy to fix food that will last years in the pantry along with water and the ability to purify more water. Add lot's of spices and coffee ect. Build up from there. Add a way to cook stuff like a tiny propane camping stove with two 20 lb barbeque grill type propane tanks or a good rocket stove that burns sticks. Most people on sites like this site keep a bit more than 2 weeks worth of supplies and broaden out the mixture of supplies as they plan for longer term events.
Start with rice, beans, and pasta with different canned sauces and lots of spices. Stuff that will keep for years. Figure on 2000 calories per day per person as a minimum. This advice is just if you're looking to get through a 2-3 week self-quarantine period but is a good start for any prepping mindset. Don't forget any common OTC meds you may want along with toilet paper ect. Enough to get through a few weeks stuck at the house.
You can get a lot more serious with more supplies, fuel, batteries, ect. but it sounds like you're just looking for a bit of safety if you need to stay at the house for a few weeks.

The article on the virus origin........ that’s some scary shit.
Everyone saying “don’t worry about corona”, that’s cool. Except if the virus itself isn’t that bad, ( which I believe it’s much worse than reports indicate) there are the social consequences that are accompanying it. What’s a prepper gonna do when they can’t continue stocking up as usual? Then it’s not a luxury, it’s a necessity. The shortage from panic buying can literally force you to start using your stockpiles. Bullet sales in my state went up 108 percent total. The masks and gloves shelves at Walmart are empty, I see folks buying 6 and 7 cases of water at a time now regularly. Just saying but when shit runs out, the fear of corona can easily cause a degree of social unrest. Take any natural disaster, amplify it by an undetermined area of effect. Pay attention to everything. It all matters. You should explain things that you’re worried about to your girlfriend. Do the research. Use facts. And explain that you are worried for yourself AND her safety. Just my opinion.
