The way I figure it, if you are not on your land, you are on someone else's.

An individual, or even a family could not survive but a community or land owner cooperative can. I have already spoke to the land owners around my farm and we are all in agreement. Through traffic would be stopped or controlled and we'll protect each other's properties, barter and help each other. We are all responsible for our own food and supplies, but security is a shared effort. There's not a lot of way into or out of our community so we'll be able to distance ourselves from most uninvited "guests".

Got to keep a low profile.

The first clue anyone gets from me in a SHTF situation will be around the time the 3rd or 4th zombie drops from a pop to the cabeza, followed immediately by the rapid exfiltration of the clan.

Just sayin'.


I concur.

If I owned an AR I'd have 1 load in my vest in magazines, 1 load on stripper clips in my ruck, and probably more around the house for plinking. For my sidearm, if I owned one, 3 magazines on my vest and 2 50 rd boxes in my ruck. Food I have stored enough for maybe 2 months if rationed hard, and enough for about 5 days on the road in my ruck.


Ounces = pounds and pounds = pain, if you don't believe me you haven't lived it.
Enough to survive and protect

Just a reminder that you can live a pretty good while on minimal food intake, but potable water is an absolute necessity. It will do you no good to have stockpiled a year's worth of food but have not prepared for having or being able to obtain clean drinking water. Do you have the means to get water and purify it when the tap no longer runs or you don't have electricity to power your well pump?

One thing to consider stockpiling in great quantities is salt. if you need to survive, you are going to need to salt to preserve food.

Great points about water & salt.
Invest in a GOOD water filtration system and several extra filters.
Sea salt from Sam's or Costco is cheap and available in bulk.
So are beans & rice.
5 gallon buckets & lids (cheap ones are fine) from Homo Depot, mylar bags & oxygen absorbers from eBay.

Get busy livin' or get busy dyin'.

OH ya! Sams and Costco you can find some big bags of salt.
I buy 50lb bags from a local store that buys them in bulk.

I was standing next to a well to do looking couple at Gander Mt. one day when the gentlemen asked the burly looking guy behind the counter the exact same question as they were thinking of purchasing their first handgun for "defense". The clerk said without batting an eye, "I just have to be able to kill my neighbor and take what I want if it comes down to it"....the woman literally almost hit the floor. I just walked away.

Ammo will be used for currency.

I don't have nearly as much ammo as I wish I had. Once all this stuff calms down, I will be buying ammo every time I have the money to purchase some to have for when this happens ago.
I do have enough to defend my home if need be, or at least long enough to get everything loaded up in the truck.
I have enough food for around a month. But would plan on killing what I need to eat. Have some water put back, but also have purifiers.
Next bit I need will a GOOD ruck sack, I have a beat down one.
Lots of salt. And even more Copenhagen.

This will be the true answer. You will only truely have what you have when you get with a like minded group. A lone small family can have all they want and thenk they are going to defend it or no one will find them. But eventually there will be desperate or evil people that will find them. Then its a matter of time.

Find like minded people, have a plan, and work for each other. Thats what a real survivor will need to do. Other wise, you may take alot fo them with you, but you will eventually go down.
