Why? Is something going to happen to us that we will be required to quickly get out of the area we are currently living? Explain Please.

Depending on where you live there could be any of a number of things. Tornado, hurricane, forest fire, natural gas line explosion, toxic chemical spill from a train, earthquake, ice storm, flood, rioting over the new Lebron basketball shoes, etc. etc.

That's the million dollar question? Will something bad happen, and you won't be prepared for it, if it did?

Such as...Electromagnetic Pulse from a solar storm from the sun that would knock out Americas electrical grid. No phone, no computer, no cars or trucks running, due to the magnetic pulse that would fry all circuits. No trucks running...no food being delivered.

What about the way the economy is, especially if the debt ceiling does not get raised. That means troops, all federal workers, people on Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, Vets will not get money or medical help which would start a revolution in this country most likely.

Imagine if people are basically starving, and all the food is gone from the grocery stores in a matter of hours. What would you do...when masses of people turn barbaric like trying to take what you have to survive.

Anything is possible now a days.

People can prep for many reasons. From civil unrest, natural disasters, to a global medical pandemic.

I have 2 bags. One has survival supplies and ammo. And the other has clothes and money and personal items. You and I are a whole lot alike in many different ways. I believe in most of the things you do. The only thing is I wish I had a place out in the woods like you. That gives u the upper hand when things go south.

Sounds like you are well on your way when the shit hits the fan.

I want to start a thread that talks about what to have in a 72 hour "Bug Out Bag." Many people haven't a clue. Actually, I'm learning myself, so I cannot act as if I am a Rambo just yet. lol

A couple of things I do have is some shaved thin kindling in a zip lock bag, as well as a can of lighter fluid. Ya gotta have fire. I also have matches that light in heavy wind and if the matches get wet. I want to order a Strikemaster fire starter. It's a dependable fire igniting tool and an excellent back-up for when you donīt have matches.

Another thing I want to get is a good compound bow. The Indians messed up a lot of white men with arrows, and they are quiet, as well as deadly.

I really wish we could get a good thread going on here about sharing ideas on prepping, and put all of our petty silliness aside while we share information that just might save someone's life, depending on the disaster that could occur.

I grew up on a huge farm/ranch when I was younger, and in a way, all of the things my dad and grandfather taught me, was kind of prepping training or sorts. Raising crops, tending to animals, shooting, and hunting, etc...

Keep prepping and learning.

Oh, yeah, I am glad I live in the high Rockies with caves all over the place with streams, should I have to "Bug Out" of my "Bug Out" place.

That's great advice.

That's what the Anasazi Indians did for protection. They were cliff dwellers.

I have dryer lint in a bag along with cotton balls covered in Vaseline. Those make great fire starters. I do have a compound bow but never really thought about it. Thanks. This is we're all can help each other out.

I read about the cotton balls and vaseline for fire starters in a prep book, but I forgot. Thanks for the reminder.

I know people mock or scoff preppers in most cases, but if a disaster comes to their town, they would wish they would have listened, and learned.
