    And if there's electricity/gas:

    anything related to your vehicle:

    Tires,
    Oil
    Wipers, etc.
    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint - Isaiah 40:31

    Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. ~
    Matthew 7:7

    If you don't have a baby, or smoke, or don't need a portable toilet, I estimate the initial investment including the first year of consumables would cost somewhere in the $12,000-$15,000 range. A second year of consumables would be about $5,000 for a family of four.

    I agree with your other comments; although there are many good items on this list, I don't think it's well thought out in terms of either priority or self-consistency. For example, would I really need a large supply of Coleman fuel, AND propane tanks, AND charcoal and lighter fluid?

    1xx. A case of Everclear. Not for drinking (but yes, you could add it to various things like o.j.), this would be used for sterilizing instruments, disinfecting, and is a good deodorant (does anyone remember seeing the barber's instruments soaking in the plaid Everclear jars when they were a kid?) No denaturants and completely compatible with body chemistry. Also flammable, so can be used as last-resort fuel, or for barter possibilities.

    i wonder how this is affected by new technologies like 3D printing & robotics.

    will male-modelled robots be able to belch convincingly after drinking Robot Beer ?

    will female-modelled robots be able to fabricate their own feminine hygiene products, using 3D printers ?

    if the Survivalist community has an outreach program to the high-tech community, some of these ridiculous ideas could become real.

    i think that's one of the charters of Burning Man - they build ridiculous sculpture, whilst living in the desert.


    some year we'll go to to Burning Man, and some Japanese sponsored robot will be handing out Hitachi Zig-zag's.

    now THAT'S something to put on your "100 things" list.

    I think Burning Man has been overrun by LGBT's.

    Re: 100 Things You Will Wish You had Stored

    You can do all ten steps at once or divide each into a separate week and shopping trip. But you need to get it done as soon as possible. Keep in mind that this is only a starting point and isn’t presented here as a completed list.
    1. Head to the nearest Wal-Mart, Kmart, Costco or whatever and pick-up 20 lbs. of white or brown rice and 20 lbs. of pinto beans. White rice has a better storage life while brown rice has more nutritional benefits – your choice.
    2. While you’re there grab 5 lbs. mixed beans, 5 lbs. of white sugar, 5 lbs. of iodized salt, one gallon of olive oil (can be frozen to extend shelf-life), 5 lbs. oats, 10 lbs. each of white or wheat flour and cornmeal.
    3. Now head over to the canned foods and pick-up 20 cans of canned fruits and 20 cans of canned vegetables. Be sure to buy only those brands and contents you normally eat and nothing exotic. No need to shock the senses.
    4. Now over to the canned meats. Pick-up 20 cans of various meats, salmon, stews, spam and tuna. Again buy only those brands with contents you normally eat and nothing exotic.
    5. Okay. Now to the to the peanut butter shelf and toss two 40-ounce jars in the cart. The listed shelf life is just over two years and each jar has over 6,000 calories. Peanut butter is an excellent instant survival food.
    6. Over to the powdered drink mix – go on I’ll wait…Okay, pick up two 72 Ounce Tang Orange drink canisters (provides 100% of the US RDA vitamin C requirement per 8 oz. glass). Also grab six 19-Ounce Containers of Kool-Aid Drink Mix.
    7. Off to the vitamin and supplement aisle, pick up 400 tablets “one a day” multivitamin and mineral supplements. I buy this brand at the local Wal-Mart – comes in 200 count bottle for $8 each.
    8. Now to the department we all love – sporting goods. Go to the camping aisle and pick up 4 five gallon water containers. Fill with tap water as soon as you get back home.
    9. While you’re there buy 250 rounds of ammunition for your primary defensive weapon. More if you can, but this will be a good start. Also a good universal cleaning kit.
    10. And lastly pick up the best LED flashlight you can afford, extra batteries and bulb. Also grab two boxes of wooden matches and several multi-purpose lighters. Don’t forget to date, use and rotate – remember first in first out. Let’s get started. What would you add to the list?
    “Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is.” ~ Outlaw Josey Wales…

    Thanks Mick, that's a good list of preps. A good reminder for us, I added a bit more preps today because of your post.
