    100 Things You Will Wish You had Stored

    100 Things You Will Wish You had Stored:http://prepare4emergency.blogspot.com/

    How To Be Prepared:

    In order to get through any major catastrophe you need to think in terms of survival, protection, food, water, clothing and shelter. Now I'm not Ewell Gibbons but, I don't need to be. Here is one person's opinion on what you will need in the event of a "financial collapse" or other disaster.


    1. WATER:

    Don't try and store a water supply that's too big to take with you. Buy water filters instead. Portable ones. Also Bleach (chlorine Bleach can "sterilize" water: 1 teaspoon for every 50 gallons.)


    2. FOOD:

    Think about "high value" and compact nutrition. You can buy from my A-Store if you want. See the set of links on the right to find out how much you need per person.


    3. SHELTER :

    RV's Are great, but I doubt you will get very far without any available fuel. Think in terms of a high quality tent: again see my links.


    4. PROTECTION:

    Pepper Spray is good to start with I will explain personal protection on another blog. Sorry, I can't sell guns or ammo but I can help you find what you need. This is an accessories store. We are not going to take on the "gubernment", or any local police. The goal is to protect ourselves from hungry and thirsty criminals that are tired of sleeping on the cold, cold ground.


    The dollar is heading towards worthless...

    I will blog on other reasons for preparation after I get this done. This is a work of love, not greed. Those that know me know that I have great love for my family and friends.

    Those that know me also know that I am right when I tell you something. I was right about stocks, gold, real-estate, the dollar and a host of other things I won't go in to. I am well-educated; well versed, and know money better than any other man on the planet. I don't raise false alarms. This post is dated March 18, 2008. In a matter of weeks for some, months for others, your life is going to change in some very drastic ways. Please follow my advice for your benefit and the benefit of your families.

    A good cross-bow could come in handy

    Along with a good sling-shot

    Anyone ever calculate what it would cost to buy all this stuff and be stocked up for 2 years?
    Also a couple questions/

    How do you stock up on batteries? These things die after awhile and in normal everyday life I dont use batteries. Well maybe 4 a year for my mouse.. Wouldnt it be better to just get a battery charger and rechargeable batteries? If you really need em you can charge them when you run your generator.

    Portable toilet? Why? Do I really need to carry a toilet around with me?

    Feminine products? Again why? I guess thats for the married guys?

    Backpacks, duffel bags? Again why? If I have to backpack out someplace what do I do with the rest of this crap i just bought?

    Carbon monoxide alarm? Really?

    Seems like many things on this list can be eliminated pretty easy. If I have to backpack anyplace then whats the point of prepping my home for an emergency. Also if things are so bad that you have to backpack out someplace then I'm not so sure I want to be out backpacking. I mean, if theres a nuke attack and your car doesnt run then what.. your gonna go backpacking? I think not.. I just cant imagine a scenario where backpacking is going to be my only option for survival.. If it is then I'm in the wrong spot to begin with.

    It's kind of like the BOB threads where they indicate all the shit you should have in your BOB. You couldn't carry that in a full sized truck. And then where the F are you going to put the 100 kilos of gold.

    Mostly good stuff if you are already in your location and plan to sit.

    As for the porta-john: I have one and I got to put it to practical use recently. It's nice to take a crap in the garage while they are digging up a septic line in the front yard while reading my handyman magazine

    A really wise investment should you find one at a yard sale cheap. I also have an antique one that we usually plant pots in. Its a nice wooden chair and you open the lid and there is a chamber pot. It beats the hell out of a 5 gallong bucket.

    Patience comes to those who wait.....calculate distance, drop, wind speed, relax and gently commit.

    Once the economist's neurons and dendrites are fully programmed (usually for life), economists serve as robotic broadcasting devices explicitly designed to hide the political nature of the economy from the public. In other words, the economist serves no function in society except to protect the ruling elites from public scrutiny while they loot the planet. Jay Hanson

    The last prep items I picked up were survival books and edible wild plants books.

    Then I started reading the survival books . . . and I have a whole lot more stuff to buy.
