Any Preppers out there?
 
Is anyone getting into the prepper culture? What are you storing, what are you keeping for currency, what are you stocking for ammo?

I've got enough to last me and my family about a year in food and water. We have enough ammo to fight off a small army and working on the house hardening thing now.

Give me your opinion on the good stuff and not so good stuff.

What are you preparing for?

Just in case something happens. Could be anything, financial collaspe, Natural disaster, sun flares, martial law. You name it we get closer to something everyday.

Ok, walk through this with me. I'm not making fun but if you have a solution for all the holes I can poke you'll be better prepared. I'm good at poking holes, sort of what I do for a living.

Do you live very close to a fresh water source? How fresh will that source be post apocalyptica?

Fresh water being more important than canned food in reality.

I have a well over 100 feet deep and it's on solar power and my incoming well water is pumped through filters before it ever hits the inside pipes. but I also have a 6 month supply of drinking water and portable filtering kits just in case.

Sterilization kits? Is your solar system for your well protected?

Have someone in your house medically trained? A lot of people prepare for attack but not sickness.

How far is your well from your home and can you defend both at the same time.

Sure you have enough ammo to defend against a small army from a head on attack but how would you fare against three guys that take out your water well and sit and wait for you?

What calibers are your guns?

I've got a 7.62 rifle,12 gauge 8 round assault shotgun, 22 semi rifle, 380 pistol and 38 special. the solar unit is placed outside my backdoor and is portable. My well is in my front yard right outside the front door about 30 feet. I was in the USMC for several years so the medical training is basic cpr, etc. I've also worked in hospitals for the last 30 years so I've picked up a thing or two and also have a couple of different medical manuals and first aid kits and supplies.

Watch this and tell me you don't think will happen soon?

I'm on this weekend via phone do not going to vids.

Before you start thinking about hardening your home, are you sure that you are going to stay there?
