    As a prepper for almost 20 years, I'd say the first step has to be knowing what SHTF scenarios you might face. Off the top of my head, I can think of at least 10 distinct SHTF and near-SHTF situations that are currently very possible, and many levels of severity within each of those.

    You can't effectively prep if you're not clear what you're prepping for, and if you don't vividly imagine yourself and your family in those situations. That requires a lot of constructive daydreaming.

    A good place to start is by reading alternative news and "conspiracy" websites and forums. You'll get a lot of ideas about what can happen there. A lot of preppers have their favorite scenarios, but try to prep for all of the ones you consider possible, focusing on things and skills you generally need. As other members have pointed out, things like food, water, health, shelter, etc. are common needs in most scenarios. Similarly, certain skills like first-aid, gardening, firearms training, etc. are also important to have in most scenarios.

    OMG Gus, 10 distinct SHTF situations... which one should I Prep for? I prefer to prep for the end of the world, a nice bottle of bourbon, and the last of my ice cubes, and be content that you are safe somewhere.

    Whoops, don't want to scare the newbies, my bad.

    Water, water water........and more water. Buy it, store it, find ways to collect it! Also learn to use what you already have (water heater, toilet tank, pool) and find ways to purify/preserve it.

    Also jump into those medical supplies. Been thinking about it lately and a toothache isn't a big deal but during emergency/SHTF its gonna be a pain in the tooth (you thought I was going to say ass). Infection is bad, m'kay!
    Water water water YES!
    Of course, I have had to remind some newbies that rainwater collected from your roof system is not potable. An invitation to visit my rooftop - where they get to see for themselves the copious amounts of raccoon and bird crap that water will flow through before it gets to their rain barrel - gets the point across LOL.

    Hi, Thank you so much for your post! Iím a new member and Iím in a hurry to get off the left coast, currently in a city by the beach which gets worse as the day go by. Ready to head out but not sure where. Looking for natural source of water, room to grow food and keep animals and would hope for a small community of like minded folks who know what a neighbor is. 2A a must, the least costly the better. Mild climate the best, but Iím doubting at this point itís a priority.
    have been prepping city wise, former military and ready to go. Any opinions or guidence
    would be welcome, have been looking on the Net for months with little joy.
    thanks in advance to any that contribute to my education.
    respectfully.

    Move to Northern Michigan. Cadillac area to be specific. Land is around $1,500.00 an acre and after selling your California property you can buy a pretty good spread here. Great paying jobs suck though. Tourism and factory jobs here besides the normal retail jobs.

    I like what you are saying, and I would have loved the time to have prepped for this.
    I have always wanted to prep myself but I was kind of isolated in my decision and have been laid off work
    for 7 months from a herniated disc.

    So what about guys like me, caught off guard, have little and willing to do whatever he can to make his odds a little better. I know its not much, but little things... hiding places... stuff like that... traps....etc.. I do have at least 2 decent size boxes of nonperishable items and waters " I know its very little " but for one guy I can make that last.

    Other than my residence I have 1 vehicle which is a single cab ranger truck. I fear I may have to ditch it because it has an exhaust leak.
    If anything I keep the tank filled and i can drive to... really... nowhere.

    Any help would be great I have been scrambling for any kind of answers

    Are you aware of any good survival blogs? I run a blog and am trying to find like-minded people to link to or to guest post on.
