  • Who prepares for the worst?

    I do. We have food for about 3 months and about a 1000 gallons of water stored. Of course I have weapons and ammo, but I also have mindset that hopefully will help. So, how about some of you?

    Do you stay prepared? I talk to so many people who think it is strange for me to have supplies for an outage. I think those people are living in lala land.

    Does a Snickers and a bottle of Aquafina qualify???????

            I've been a 'member' of this group since 1998(http://www.alpharubicon.com), but as a 'country boy', I've always had the 'survivalist mindset'.

            BTW...'survivalist' is NOT a 'dirty word'.

                      I grew up in the north where it was always a possibility to go without electricity for a week or two. I can remember one time of a week without any heat or lights that we kept warm by huddling under many comforters. I to this day make sure there are plenty of blankets in the house along with candles and oil lamps. I make sure I have a natural gas stove thus a heating and cooking source if no power. I electric stove is ok if I have a fire place. I try to keep a stock of food so that we are never too low. I think having a five or six day stock of most things is good as I do not recall any time where i could not get out and get to where I wanted after more than a day or two. I am not much of a water drinker but I know I try to make sure sandie and I have a week supply of pepsi on hand LOL.

                        I keep the water in empty quart transmission fluid cans.

                        Actually, I keep it in food grade plastic 55 gallon drums. I rotate it about twice a year. Takes me a weekend to do it usually because they are hard to empty, so I just siphon each one out.

                          I imagine lots of guys will end up with their own 'harems'.

                          Seriously....THIS can be a serious problem that few consider. WHO do you turn away in a crisis? No one....everyone?

                          Wow.....3 whole days w/o power? LOL During the 'Ice Storm of '94', we were w/o power for 13 days. Thanks GOD for gas logs and generators!

                            Well if you guys want you are invited to come to my house for the food. My husband shops like there will be a depression. We went one whole year without buying butt wipe. Family grocery shops at my house all the time. And with the Az heat you never have to worry about fireplaces or heaters just set up some solar panels to warm the water and for the lights.

                              If you are prepared to make "the worst" better, then it's not "the worst" that could happen, is it?

                              My wife stocked up on supplies for Y2K (& we all saw what that did) & stocks up for storms & such. She's the ant, I'm the cricket.
