Strive to Survive and Thrive
That's why I want to get prepared. I've been watching riot videos a lot from natural disasters and that just make me wonder how bad it would get if there is no one to keep order, and if things aren't solved soon.
My dad does own a firearm, and I practiced with it some while camping though I am not the best shot, and I lack practice. My dad was in the marines and had some training, but he isn't in good shape anymore. He have some permanent injures with the nerves in his arms and something is wrong with his back.
I haven't talked to my family about prepping yet, but I suppose I should.
Much depends on how responsive your family is to prepping. I'm on my phone and can't post links. Go to ready.gov and the Red Cross sights and read about the bare minimum in prepping. Maybe leave the page open on the family computer, accidently on purpose, so others can read it and maybe become interested. Anyway, it's a way to get a conversation started.
I will speak for me...
I would guess I am in Pittsburgh for some stupid reason (dropping off stinking dead fish, I mean relative at air port) - 102 miles from my house.
#1. get anything from vehicle that I did not want to loss. #1a- chamber a round and check safety
#2. walk to nearest store and trade/barter/buy some water and energy bars - I carry cash and some silver with me always.
#3 start walking until I can maybe barter for a bicycle

must first ask yourself if you are willing to leave your family and go it alone.. if that is out of the question and they aren't on board or prepped.. you will all only last as long as you have water.. or as long as somebody who is out of water wants yours.. Godspeed my young apprentice!

No, I don't like FEMA but the average person will do what the government suggests and it might make it easier for Almost Human to talk to them without them thinking he is wearing a tin foil hat.
