WELCOME

Throughout the different human race civilizations stories of the DOOMSday soon to come have always persisted. Whether it will come from higher powers as punishment for our sins or from mother Nature still uncertain. But what it is true, is that must of those ancient civilizations have set our present as the time in which these events could take place. From the Egyptians to the must mentioned predictions of the Mayans, they not just proclaimed of an end of days, but instead they warn us of a new beginning. This blog has been created to share our thoughts on this topic. How to prepare for unforseen worldwide events or any inputs of interest that might find answers to our member's questions regarding our survival. Please feel free to share.

SURVIVAL KITS check list

SURVIVAL KITS CHECK LIST

*Water battles, Non perishable Food, First Aid kit, Flashlight and Batteries, Lighter and Matches(keep matches in sealed plastic bag) Thermal Blankets and personal hygiene items. All at least a 3 days supply.

These kits should be prepared one per each house member. They are the first and most important kit in order to survive in any emergency situation that forces any family away from home.

ADVANCED EMERGENCY preparedness are for those more serious about a major catastrophe, it fits better the Doomsday scenario and will depend on each individual's finances, home location, health condition and other factors to be considered and based on longer periods of survival.

*Dehydrated Food, Non perishable, Freeze Dried food. Use Sealed buckets when packing. 3 servings per person per day enough for expected time of survival.
*Water. Without water humans can't survive long. Gather at least 1/2 gallon per day per person. Better kept in glass containers, otherwise use plastic.
*First Aid kits, any medication you or your family members are taking. A book or guide on medical and first aid treatments could come handy. Check the expiration dates on all pills and medicine.
*AM/FM Radio, flashlights, batteries, Matches. Lighters and lighter fluid.
*Hygiene items such as bath soaps, tooth paste, feminine items, etc. To avoid sickness from infections.
*Weapon for self-defense (prior training with hand guns is a must needed factor). Ammo.
*Generators/ Water filtration system/ Alternative energy equipment such as solar power panels/ Survival guide/ Vegetable seeds and others that can be planted for future consumption/ Gas masks.
*Remember your pet's needs also. Food and medication and any other special needs.
Working on a community survival plan is recommended. When working on a trusted group, daily survival will become easier, protection and skills will be shared, and labor will be more productive.

If land is available, preparing a Bunker, building an animal shelter and planting trees that will flourish every year with minimum maintenance is a plus. Oranges, lemons, avocados, plantains and others are easy to maintain and will provide must needed nutrients and vitamins without much effort and in a natural way.

There are many shows now on surviving extreme conditions such as the doomsday event. Watching them will provide tips we tend to ignore when under preasure. Small things as keeping some kind of entertainment such as books, or table games for the family to distract themselves. When building a bunker keep ceilings high above 8 feet if possible, will minimize the feeling of been in an enclosed enviroment. Taking care of the sicological part is as important as our phisical needs.

Agreed. The phisical preassure during any harsh situation becomes secundary to the sicological one. Once your mind shuts down, your body will too. Been able to stay alert in order to move on is of first priority during survival.

COMMENT ON "Looking at people in the east after Sandy,not so crazy to prep"
The option to prep or not is up to each individual. We, who decided to do some prep should we ever need to reach out of our confort zone in case of emergency prefer to share info with others so that we all can have a chance at survival in such sad events like the ones created by Sandy. Family lives have been devastated in most affected areas and whether or not some good could possibly have come from been prepared, I'm sure nothing bad could had come either. I hope for you and your loved ones to be safe and out of harms way in case you live in the affected areas.
Best regards.

This awareness of potential disaster and/or the anarchy that comes from it, is a wise thing to consider. I believe the first thing to consider is where you live. We live on a small 148 acre ranch in south central Texas and spend a lot of time in Dallas in a common neighborhood near downtown. We have plans for what to do when we are at the ranch, but it is much more problematic if something happens while we are in the city. You have to decide if you have a place to go, a better destination, if you can leave the city. Then you have to decide how you will get there considering the problems with transportation, rations and a possible loss of communication with loved ones. Our first plan is to get my adult kids, and myself, down to the ranch. Well maintained bicycles and backpacks with enough stuff to make the 300 mile ride to get "home". I think at a minimum having enough food and water to last 30-60 days would be a good place to start. Also assume no electricity, so depending on the time of year, you may need more clothing. After food and water, I believe you need a physical defense system including guns that you know how to use well, ammo that you can store in quantities as if you won't be able to ever buy more, knives and sharpening devices, first aid kit (a big one), a fire starter/sparker, and most importantly water, and lots of it. I could go on and on, but for those that want to think about it, it feels better to have some kind of plan...any plan, but get started on something.

Wow, 148 acres sounds like great! How would you manage to protect such vast amount of land under a Doomsday event? Have you guys planned for building a small community within your property?

Land size wont matter after a society ending event.... however knowing the land, one "currently" posses is important as it gives a person " home field" advantage. Other than that, great question about bringing others into the fold. The goal of any prepper is to stockpile and acquire in advance as much as possible before hand. The one thing I always see missing in these shows are preppers including other people/preppers. You can have a million rounds of ammo and 25 years of food..... it will all mean nothing if a bigger group of people comes in and storms your strong hold and takes it all from you.

scottish prepper said...

I live in scotland and me and my pRtner are preppers.. Maybe not big timers. but we have food, water, tents, blankets, small gas stoves and things. What worries me is defence, as unlike our usa cousins we cannot easily gain fire arms. In fact its extremely difficukt.. Which worries me. Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks

vicki griffin said...

I am not interested so much in the doomsday aspect of prepping per say.
I am interested because I live in a rural area. when bad storms hit in any time of year. we can loose power therefore loose all our food. and water etc. And after having a derachio (?) where we had nothing for well over a week. rather than just a day or two.

If it happens fast and you are miles from your shelter such as at work, and your family is at work/school, how do you get to your shelter on time? If your food is grown outdoors and the atmosphere is contaminated then wont your food crops be too? If you live remotely then fuel is an issue. Most deteriorate over time can LPG be an alternate source? What if your local laws don't allow average citizens firearms how do you protect your shelter/family? If the atmosphere is contaminated how do I ensure my shelter gets clean air and what commercial products can I purchase to move about in such an environment? I don't earn a lot how can I afford an awesome shelter that will keep me safe form harmful gasses and radiation? I want my family to live through a global meltdown but I guess the answers are just as sketchy as the way it will happen. I will prep just the same but I don't like my chances. I am military combat and medic trained and have bush skills from a lifetime but I don't have the time or money to be prepared....what do I do?

My respect to "Anonymous" since you mention been trained on military combat and medic training and his/her comment "If it happens fast and you are miles from your shelter such as at work, and your family is at work/school, how do you get to your shelter on time? If your food is grown outdoors and etc,etc"
I am new to the prepper community as well and I rely mostly on the internet to learn on how to prepare properly. I assume that you being medic and combat trained gives you multiple points ahead to start. I assume one of the things you should had learned while in service is to always plan ahead. You should have an exit strategy and a place to move to (besides your home) in case of a national or worldwide breakdown of society. The obvious question comes here - Do I have the financial means to acquire and support a second "home" away from home? - And the answers will vary for most of us of course. When disaster approaches and the means to survive forces us out of our homes, any place in which we can regroup with trusted friends and family members will serve us well to restart our lives, whether is in the woods, or in an abandoned building or cabin away from the city that only a few know about it. Training your love once periodically on getting there asap when needed, and having small provision packages hiding along the way so that in a rush escape you can have access to in order to keep moving and arrive at your selected hide out will also serve you well.
Then again, you presented multiple questions (and very good ones) that would require the answers from experts in which am clearly not included. But the point of it all is planning ahead, plan for a second move-to safe place, plan and train your loved ones on how to get there quick and safe, plan on gathering resources (food, water, medicine, etc) and keep it at main home-at safe place/home/hideout, and some in between the route. Talk to your military friends and ask for advise depending on their individual fields of expertise (and place answers here for guys like me in the need-to-know :) )GOOD LUCK

hey man its ok if u live chek to chek most of us do now a days. The thing is to buy little by little. for example when ever possible at the grocery store pik up a extra bag of beans or rice after a while ur stock pile will grow. u just need to get the ball rolling. also chek out ur local thrift stores I have found portable stoves, tents,sleeping bags, and all kinds of items that can be used for preparness with a little imagination and ingenuity. and u can get this items at low cost. good luck n good bless u man.

You can buy alot of things you amd your family may need at a dollar tree. For example. ..bandages anti bacterial oointment, pain reliever, flashlights amd batteries ect. Amd everything is $1. Check them out

I live in a national Forrest , their may be 100 people were I live and I know almost all of them. I just recently started putting together my emergency kits and plan to do many more. With 3 dogs I also plan on stocking up on food amd water for them. I love all the information on here.

I am also broke but have managed to put back alot. Shop buy one get one free save the extras. Don't throw away spaghetti jars,mayo jars and things like that. Wash and reuse to store all the items you are saving. Rice,powder milk,spices and pasta. I wash out all jugs and refill with water,store in cool dark place. Not the best to store in but this is what I can do with no extra money. Dollar stores have band aids ,ointment and such VERY CHEAP. I save all plastic ware and store in my picnic baskets along with wet naps, hotel shampoo , conditioner and soap. There is my start!

Fire starters are ideal for survival fires (matches run out).

I prefer Fire Pistons for making fire...light weight, and last for many fires. The magnesium fire starters, like matches eventually get used up :(

food rations said...

Yes i also agree with you fire starters are idea for survival fires.You have done great for others with this detail.

You know these days there are some highpowered automatic airrifles with copperheaded leadbullets. You can shoot trough windows and such at a rate of 300rpm. They are not cheap though around 2500euros. But maybe worthwhile. And its silent.

I think Survival Kits
must obtain sufficient items to meet the requirements of the emergency condition. For example, no matter the size of your survival kit, it must make sufficient provisions for your most significant necessity in a crisis - water. We should be thankful to the elements of survival kit.
