    What are you preparing for?

    I've been reading a lot of different post on a lot of different forums and watched various youtube vids. My question is. What are you preparing for?

    Personally I don't put any stock in the doomsday stuff and definitely not zombies. Other than natural disasters (which is the main thing I prep for), the other big ones I foresee is economic collapse and civil unrest. Both of which I think is only a matter of time.

    The thing that scares me the most is long term, widespread loss of electrical power. For whatever reason(s). If I can be prepared for that, with all of its facets and complications, I will feel prepared for almost anything.

    I'm not there yet.

    I doubt anyone is as prepared as they think they are. To be ready for most things takes a lot of room, money, and time. Always better to try though unlike most that live in debt and day to day.

    domestic rioting/looting and wanton violence - without a doubt the most probable SHTF - an initial SHTF all to itself and a likely tangent linked SHTF to just about anything imaginable ....

    Add to this Electrical grid down and war, you are there. Not if, when.

    I first started prepping in 2010, I was worried about 2012. I thought there was at least going to be chaos in the streets if nothing else. Of course nothing happened but sometime in 2012 I lost my job and was jobless for 6 months. I couldn't get unemployment and couldn't find a decent job where I lived out in the middle of nowhere. I ended up eating through most of my food storage and I was really thankful that I had it, and I don't know what I would've done without it. I probably would've went to bed hungry most nights. I prepare for the unexpected. I can live and sleep in my Bug Out Vehicle, god forbid I ever lost my house I would have a place to sleep. I have plenty of food and water at my house and a get home bag in my vehicle. Anything can happen, anytime, anywhere.

    I filmed a video about my jobless struggles at the time. Feel free to watch it.

    I prep cause it's the smart thing to do. Not because I'm worried about something.

    First off, don't dismiss zombies. The unprepared will roam the earth in search of food and water, etc.
    If you have what they want, they will eventually kill to get it. Maybe they won't kill and eat you like
    Zombies (the upper case Z in Zombies refers to the TV Zombie), but they will kill you. And don't
    dismiss cannibalism. Remember the Donner party, the Uruguayan rugby team who crashed in the
    mountains, the castaway Salvadoran fisherman who "may" have eaten his shipmate, etc. The bible
    talks about a time of famine in which people ate their children during the time of Solomon.

    So what do I prepare for? Anything I can think of that will cause a tremendous catastrophe. It
    could be loss of the grid due to a war or terrorist country (EMP), or a geomagnetic storm caused by
    a coronal mass ejection. An economic collapse, hell the list is too long to go into.

    Am I prepared? Hell no. And yes, I do believe a doomsday scenario exists, if you don't, go ask the dinosaurs.
    I really want one of these!Hidden Content
