Lately I have jumped into this Prepping thing a little bit.

Assembling a Get Home Bag or a Bug Out Bag to take around with me. Mainly b/c with my job if some large scale event happened it could take me awhile to get home.

I'm purchasing 2-3 firearms in the next year, along with a decent cache of ammo.

I'm thinking about long term foods, water, supplies, etc


I feel like I'm getting a little crazy.

i keep having these premonitions of a disaster striking and the only result being prolonged gunfights due to everyone buying guns instead of food.

/not teh kurb... just saying.

Its good to prep but if poo really gets bad... No matter how much food or water u have, u will still die a painful death. Please give me a favor and look at nuclear facilities in and around US. If poo gets bad and no one to maintain those bad boys, US will be a nuclear waste land where even roaches will not survive.

So this feeling of "I need to be ready for (Stuff)" isn't just me... fascinating.

I have stepped up my prepping too Kurb. Last Thursday I bought 100 more rounds of 45.

My wife's 90 year old granny said that she will teach us how to can food. So we are going to go pick her up this weekend, and learn a few things. Born in 1922 she was old enough to remember the depression, so she is going to be a huge bank of knowledge for us.

The best thing is...I have my wife into it now! Finally!

And also I learned how to get water out of my well if the power grid goes down, and my neighbor said I can have access to his natural spring runoff. He is a prepper as well.

#1 thing to do is to get out of populated areas. You stay in big cities/towns, you will die.

Wait...what ?


can anyone name me a historical disaster (outside of war) where guns were an important part of survival?

not saying it's a bad idea... just saying people seem to focus on the guns an awful lot. (which usually means they've just been reading some distopian sci-fi.)

that said, i have about 4 weeks of food and 2 weeks of water sitting in my basement.

I'm curious about this map... maps are kinda my thing...

One thing I notice right off is that there are two marks right near me in ILM. Now we do have the Brunswick Nuke Plant right across the river here, but not sure what the other mark is for? Maybe the GE plant in Castle Hayne? They have nuke facilities but no reactor that I'm aware of.
