I am a prepper and I freely admit it. Not to the extent of most of the people on this show who spend 10s of thousands of dollars. But yeah if Yellowstone blows its top in my lifetime I want to be able to get somewhere safe and survive for as long as I can.

What sort of plans and stores do you have? Because everyone would want to get somewhere safe in event of a disaster, that doesn't make one a prepper. To be a prepper you gotta have detailed plans, large amounts of materials, resources and food stowed away, weapons maybe, and a bunker of some type.

I want a bunker... not because I'm some doomsday prepper, but because my wife keeps squeeeezing me out of my man caves. I figure a bunker will be the least likely place to be turned into a laundry room, a nursery, or a walk in closet.

I disagree. Stores yes we have plenty of stores. Detailed plans yes but a bunker? Not a chance if that thing goes the plan is to stay mobile.

You are in MT. Good luck getting anywhere in the 20 feet of ash. That is if you survive all the poisonous gas it will put out. A Yellowstone volcano eruption just might be an extinction event and you got a front row seat son. You're dead!

First ex wife was a Mormon. What could go wrong, I thought?
Well, when you're a cop and you come home one day and smell decomp in your apartment, and you're sniffing and sniffing trying not to gag, but trying to figure out where the fark it is coming from and finally, open the hall closet and realize it's coming from that sack, there. In the back. What the fark. Has she murdered someone and put them in a sack and stored them in the hall closet? And you tenderly open the sack and peer, retching inside and realize as the millions of cockroaches swarm out that once, this bag held perfectly lovely potatoes.
And you ask her what the fark ever possessed her to purchase fifty farking pounds of spuds and hide them in the closet and she says, "Oh, it's a Mormon thing"

"Mormon thing!?!? I married you because you were raised in the desert, and I figured having to drive 300 miles to get to a store you might, just might be frugal!!!"

"We hoard food in case......" she says.

they had some real winnars on that show.

Toss up between the guy who blew his own finger off in front of his kids due to poor firearm discipline, and the two morons who were shooting from an enclosed space, and one guy got his eardrum blown out, or almost did.  The guy started bawling on camera.  Not like, pain bawling, or cries of agony, but butthurt bawling, cause apparently his prepper buddy was just as moronic as him.

I saw the episode with this guy in it. He wasn't actually prepping cause he said he was going to be a raider and go take everyone else stuff.

Plus, it's a reality show about doomsday prepping. Even a simpleton, like this guy, should know that you don't tell anybody about your prepping. The reason being; if people know you have an arsenal, with 50,000 rounds of ammo, they're going to come and try to take it from you if the shiat really hits the fan.

Which is why my wife and I are looking at moving to Costa Rica. We have the required income; we both speak Spanish and are comfortable in Latin American culture.

It's a good thing I'm not in a position to do so, because I'd be tempted to set up one of his suits of 'body armor' outside his cell, then just shoot it full of holes in front of him. Rub his nose in his idiocy, and make him thank whatever deity he believes in that he DIDN'T try to wear that nonsense in an actual firefight.

I'd likely be dead as well.  I'm close enough - maybe just far enough to start driving before the ash overtakes me.  I would actually welcome it at this point.  It might all be in the timing.  If I see it on the news right away and panic I might have a chance.  If the TV is off and I'm just surfing Fark it will probably be dark in the afternoon before I realize anything is amiss.

A little knowledge, man.  He's heard about "ceramics" being the most effective way of improving body armor, and he promptly applied his own frame of reference for what that meant.  He's probably tried to get his wife into pottery for the same reason.

Last Man on Earth: Ed Grubermann: abhorrent1: I saw the episode with this guy in it. He wasn't actually prepping cause he said he was going to be a raider and go take everyone else stuff. He was actually making "body armor" out of ceramic bathroom tiles stuck together with roofing tar. It was a sight to be seen. He's an incredibly annoying and stupid  douche bag.

He's a farking moron is what he is. Bathroom tile? Really?

A little knowledge, man.  He's heard about "ceramics" being the most effective way of improving body armor, and he promptly applied his own frame of reference for what that meant.  He's probably tried to get his wife into pottery for the same reason.

tripleseven: they had some real winnars on that show.

Toss up between the guy who blew his own finger off in front of his kids due to poor firearm discipline, and the two morons who were shooting from an enclosed space, and one guy got his eardrum blown out, or almost did.  The guy started bawling on camera.  Not like, pain bawling, or cries of agony, but butthurt bawling, cause apparently his prepper buddy was just as moronic as him.

WINNAR!


I saw both of those.  The eardrum guy was especially funny because he had been talking about being independent and self reliant and all that good stuff, and how he was so super smart and prepared, and when he gets a relatively minor injury like that he completely breaks down.  I saw the camera crew calling medics and I laughed and laughed.  If you can't handle that, what else can't you handle?

Oh, and did you see the one where the guy makes a cinderblock "castle" with giant ground level windows?  And did I mention the walls were only one cinderblock thick?  And that he had zero clue what to do when the electrical system went out because rain got in?

Also I've only seen one episode where they stockpile booze, and I haven't seen any that know how to distill or brew beer.

All joking about it aside, that's not even close to being true. There have been plenty of studies of the potential effects of a Yellowstone Supervolcano eruption, and while it would be a global catastrophe of a scale approachable only by large meteor strike, it would NOT be an extinction level event for humanity.

That said, I should wouldn't want to live anywhere in the northern hemisphere's temperate regions.

Anybody with a stove, 5 gallon bucket, thermometer, and reasonably stocked tool bag can make a still pretty quick. The two dangers are 1) blowing up and 2) going blind, but both of those are easily overcome with a little know how.

1) pressure release valve (tape over a hole)
2) toss first and last .5L when you're at brewing temp (but dump it back in your mash - there's still booze in that liter!)

You know, if the apocalypse did happen I'm pretty sure a lot of the crazy doomsday prepper types would be the first to go, for one reason: a lot of them are stupid and ati-social. Their plan is to run to their remote fort when things go bad, with no one around for miles. And then they fall down a ravine while gathering firewood, break their leg, and die because they're not a doctor. Now, the smart, not crazy preppers would realize that in order to thrive in a disaster they need to get other people, they need to form a community to watch each other's backs. The idiot in the article plans on running through the streets raiding other people's stuff, but hasn't considered that other people might be armed and might not take too kindly to looters.

Thats what makes me laugh about that show. They show off all their crap and think they are safe. All they need is one person to recognize them and come get their stuff when it hits the fan. Depending on their defensive strategy they could hold them of for a bit, but in the end people on the outside will expend enough lives to get them.

What sort of plans and stores do you have? Because everyone would want to get somewhere safe in event of a disaster, that doesn't make one a prepper. To be a prepper you gotta have detailed plans, large amounts of materials, resources and food stowed away, weapons maybe, and a bunker of some type.


I think a rational prepper prepares for disasters weighing both their potential devastation and their potential likelihood.  Yellowstone blowing would be highly devastating, but also highly unlikely to occur in any given year.  Financial hardships like losing your job or needing expensive medical treatment would be less devastating, but much more likely.  If you've sunk a bunch of your available money into a bunker, you're stupid and unprepared for a personal financial disaster; however, if you've saved that bunker money and maybe just stocked up on stuff you would use anyways, then you can use that bank of goods to help tide you through either a natural disaster or a personal one.

tll;dr: Bunker preppers are idiots who can't evaluate risk.

Well, that's the thing. People tend to band together in disaster. So, yes, there might be football pad wearing raiders, but there would also be groups of survivors trying to form communities. Just as long as you're smart and pull your weight you could probably be accepted by or found either.


I dunno, the GOT MINE, SCREW YOU! attitude is very prevalent in America today.

Hey, that's my plan too! Death Buddies! :P

My plan is to have enough beer on hand to keep me drunk for a good long time or at least up until the point where looters come and kill me for my beer.  I'm good for 6 months easy.

I know a guy who met a guy the other day that had a few pallets of beer in his barn.  I guess he gets it cheap, then him and his hands finish it off over the summer.


I'm ok with this.  I'm not there yet, but I did buy 6 cases of Yuengling the other day because it was $14 a case.  I already have many gallons of homebrew so if civilization goes to shiat I'm going out shiatfaced.

I refer to the place where I store my extra whiskey as "the bunker."

/It's actually spread out over a couple different areas.


"extra" whiskey?  I don't understand.  This is a strange concept.  How can there be "extra"?


After the last ice storm in Dallas I learned the meaning of extra. It's the stuff you hide in case you can't go out for a week because the ground isn't safe. I'm a rum man, but I have a few bottles of vodka stashed for emergencies / jello shots.

Plus, it's a reality show about doomsday prepping. Even a simpleton, like this guy, should know that you don't tell anybody about your prepping. The reason being; if people know you have an arsenal, with 50,000 rounds of ammo, they're going to come and try to take it from you if the shiat really hits the fan.

/ The show is a very good illustration of what not to do during an actual end times situation.

No one wants to be around you even with a fully functional civilization.  What makes you think people will want to be around you when the shiat hits the fan?

That's not what your mother said, Trebek!

I'm not a prepper; yes, I have a few guns, with ammo; yes, I have enough food and water for two weeks and, yes, I have camping gear and the experience to use it (I'm an Eagle Scout). But, if the shiat really did hit the fan; not much of that would matter.

I just don't see the point; if it was an asteroid or volcano or other natural disaster; it's a choice between a quick death and starving.

You could get a bunker and enough resources to survive years; but, you'd have to come up eventually, then you'd be screwed.

A financial collapse or something similar would be much more survivable; but, what kind of life would you have?

/ Plus, I don't want to deal with super mutants

I've gathered that Doomsday preppers have very intricate and expensive plans for the absolute breakdown of society but when it comes to minor emergencies or problems they have nothing. There's no middle ground between "everything is fine" and "guess I'd better drink my own piss."

Richard C Stanford: abhorrent1: I saw the episode with this guy in it. He wasn't actually prepping cause he said he was going to be a raider and go take everyone else stuff. He was actually making "body armor" out of ceramic bathroom tiles stuck together with roofing tar. It was a sight to be seen. He's an incredibly annoying and stupid  douche bag.

You know, if the apocalypse did happen I'm pretty sure a lot of the crazy doomsday prepper types would be the first to go, for one reason: a lot of them are stupid and ati-social. Their plan is to run to their remote fort when things go bad, with no one around for miles. And then they fall down a ravine while gathering firewood, break their leg, and die because they're not a doctor. Now, the smart, not crazy preppers would realize that in order to thrive in a disaster they need to get other people, they need to form a community to watch each other's backs. The idiot in the article plans on running through the streets raiding other people's stuff, but hasn't considered that other people might be armed and might not take too kindly to looters.


My plan would be the most likable and least-killable guy around because I would just grow these:

I figure the only guy with the best way of forgetting that you're in a post-apocalyptic wasteland is safe. Also, since all these cowboys are going to be shooting each other full of holes, the winners are going to need painkillers. Poppies grow literally like weeds and one just needs to pass a combine over the field once or twice. I see the post-apocalyptic future and it appears mellow.

You are in MT. Good luck getting anywhere in the 20 feet of ash. That is if you survive all the poisonous gas it will put out. A Yellowstone volcano eruption just might be an extinction event and you got a front row seat son. You're dead!

The caldera is rising at 3 inches a year! Yippee!
http://www.activistpost.com/2013/10/yellowstone-supervolcano-alert-m os t.html

I went there last summer. One side of the lake is flooded and the other has a lot of exposed lake bed because it is actually tipping the lake to one side.

I'd likely be dead as well.  I'm close enough - maybe just far enough to start driving before the ash overtakes me.  I would actually welcome it at this point.  It might all be in the timing.  If I see it on the news right away and panic I might have a chance.  If the TV is off and I'm just surfing Fark it will probably be dark in the afternoon before I realize anything is amiss.


Meh, even if you survive the initial eruption it totally farks the U.S. food production capabilities causing a global food shortage of the likes we have never seen. Get a good bottle of scotch and take the easy way out.

Another thing about preppers is that if they are ALPHA MALES then women will have to obey them and have sex with them.

From the comments to that link:

Arizona - Aldus,I have to agree completely with you,The women of america HATE any one who is an ALPHA MALE,the first thing they want is to slap him into prison,WHERE HE CAN"T have a normal family or protect his children,NO only fagots and queers can be on the streets now,........Till the russians get here,then the women will wished someone could protect them,BUT their will be no one................

I always see two problems with these preppers. First they lay out these super detailed plans that allow very little flexibility in whatever they feel is their Doomsday scenario. If Yellowstone erupts your whole "shelter in place" ideas are going to be out the window. If you feel an EMP attack might happen and it's really a massive wildfire, the preppers on that show have almost zero ability to deal with it.

Second the ones that collect all the guns and brag about their super high tech security often lack even the most basic perimeter security. If someone REALLY wants your stuff, staying in one location isn't going to help you. A couple of people with high powered rifles and decent scopes in the woods when you aren't expecting it and none of your other preps will matter*.

Yes, I didn't read the book; but, I saw the movie. That's probably a pretty accurate picture of what would happen in a massive global catastrophe. You'd be fine if you could stay underground a few centuries; but, that takes a lot more than freeze-dried food and a 40' x 40' bunker. Eventually, you'd have to come up.

/ Even in the fallout universe; most of the vaults didn't make it. Even the ones that functioned as advertised weren't immune to failure.

The problem with most preppers is that they aren't preppers for rational reasons. My MIL is convinced the world economy is going to collapse by summer because of some crap she read online (latest reason is petrodollars or some other nonsense). Therefore, they have supplies stocked and gold for when things "go to hell".

Now, the stuff they have stockpiled is actually not bad seeing that we live in Southern CA. Plenty of food and water to sustain a family until things get back online after a big earthquake is a good thing.

People in areas that are prone to natural disasters or extreme weather should have supplies on hand.

But man, the reasons preppers come up with to prep for are off the wall.
 
2014-01-16 03:27:00 PM
I'd LIKE to have the money for a bunker...  Because - hey!  Cool!  Bunker!

But the above poster is right.  If things are bad enough to warrant a bunker - things are quite bad indeed.  And being in a bunker may not make the best sense.  However, for us, having a bunker would serve as a storm shelter as we don't have a basement.  And the crawlspace just won't cut it (though it could...)

And we sure do need to keep a larger store of "extras" at the house.  We weren't home for the blizzard that hit after the new year - thankfully - but we'd have been hard up for water.  Granted, we'd keep the bathtub full - but the drain stop doesn't hold 100%.  We do have a natural gas fireplace insert that'll throw some heat and we could use the grill grates to fashion a cooking surface.  We could manage with the food we have on hand - but barely.

No money right now for a generator...   Would love to have even a small one to keep the fridge and the chest freezer running at least.  Having the money, though, a nice 22Kw tri-fuel generator would be pretty nice.  However - our power rarely goes out during even the worst of storms (including blizzard...) that one that big would be quite the luxury item.

Long and short - need to lay in some water storage and a bit more easily prepared foodstuffs.

Even better. You can lose your guns with a misdemeanor as long as they throw on a DV modifier. So you can get in trouble for arguing (DV Harassment) or even putting up your hands to stop a person from hitting you (DV assault 4 because your hands came into contact with hers) and lose your right to bear arms. Not all states screw you as badly but there is a conflict with the federal DV restriction and attaching it to misdemeanors. In many places you can have the felony set aside and have your rights restored, but you cannot with a misdemeanor because the law doesn't allow for it.

They can't take your guns by asking you nicely so they make ways to take them by force under the guise of law.

That, and they hate the guy in the White House right now because his evil policies will plunge us into the dark ages.

I've stopped talking about the prepping stuff with the family and have decided to be pragmatic about it. Like I said, the prepping supplies have the potential to be lifesaving if 'the big one' hits.

My wife OTOH isn't quite as nice about it with her mom. Her general attitude is that if things get as bad as her mom predicts, it doesn't matter how much gold, food, or water you have because everyone is screwed beyond belief.

I know a guy who met a guy the other day that had a few pallets of beer in his barn.  I guess he gets it cheap, then him and his hands finish it off over the summer.

I'm ok with this.  I'm not there yet, but I did buy 6 cases of Yuengling the other day because it was $14 a case.  I already have many gallons of homebrew so if civilization goes to shiat I'm going out shiatfaced.

I've got to start my homebrewing again and fill my keg up.  Been at least a year.  I see they have wide mouth, screw on lid 6 gallon glass carboys now, I need a few of those.

I'm not an experienced homebrewer (started last year) but the horror stories I've read about glass carboys keep me solidly in the bucket and or plastic carboy camp.

My buddy uses glass carboys, and I've been helping him brew for 3 years.  Never any problems.

PunGent:  MFAWG: Farker Soze: mdeesnuts: This guy is an uber-tard, but I'm not sure 'convicted of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes' should rate 86ing his right to bear arms. Sure, it could've been a chatroom scenario like, "Oh ur 16 so wanna do anal", but my point stands that the list of what gets you on the sex offender registry needs some serious trimming.

/could just as likely be he sexted the 300lb Pizza Hut waitress without knowing she was 17

googled another article:

he's a level one sex offender who was convicted in 2009 of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, when he inappropriately touched a drunken 14-year-old girl in an Auburn parking lot. He was also convicted of stealing a motorcycle in 2009. - See more at: http://www.thedailysheeple.com/doomsday-prepper-and-convicted-felon-t y ler-smith-jailed-for-illegal-firearms_012014#sthash.PCaQl08J.dpuf

So common clay of the New West?

Reminds me of the guys who were pulling logs out of navigable waterways without getting permits on that logging.show.

Ok.  Dumb question, probably...but wouldn't they WANT you to pull logs out of a navigable waterway?


So it'd be more...I dunno...navigable?


Removing snags that have been there for decades can change the water flow and bottom structure for a considerable distance. You're supposed to get a permit so the state can go in and update charts.

I have a couple glass and couple plastic.  The plastic are easier to handle when full but I hate that you pretty much can't carry them without air coming in through the airlock.  IMO the glass ones are easier to clean and my 6.5 is awesome for primary fermentation cuz you can see the yeasties going gangbusters.  Obviously you gotta be careful.  I use the sort of net wraps that have handles to make carrying without breaking less scary.

Plenty of us have.

3 times in the past few years we have been out of power and/or water for a week at a time now.  First the Derecho Storm, then the October snowstorm year before last (don't remember the name of that one) and now this spill.  I've learned to not be caught with my pants down.

It is funny to watch everybody else freak out...especially when it's just power.  I just break out the camp gear and keep on living...

You are in MT. Good luck getting anywhere in the 20 feet of ash. That is if you survive all the poisonous gas it will put out. A Yellowstone volcano eruption just might be an extinction event and you got a front row seat son. You're dead!

pedobearapproved: I always see two problems with these preppers. First they lay out these super detailed plans that allow very little flexibility in whatever they feel is their Doomsday scenario. If Yellowstone erupts your whole "shelter in place" ideas are going to be out the window. If you feel an EMP attack might happen and it's really a massive wildfire, the preppers on that show have almost zero ability to deal with it.

Second the ones that collect all the guns and brag about their super high tech security often lack even the most basic perimeter security. If someone REALLY wants your stuff, staying in one location isn't going to help you. A couple of people with high powered rifles and decent scopes in the woods when you aren't expecting it and none of your other preps will matter*.

*unless you're wearing your bathroom tile ceramic body armor 24/7


The thing to do is buy an old missile silo from the US military.  There are a few of them in private hands and they are awesome.  The one I've seen seems just about as safe as you could possibly get and a lot of them are located in bumfark, nowhere so they've got that going for them.   If Iran were to nuke us 20 years from now I don't think they'll be striking farking Nebraska.  You don't have to worry too much about hurricanes and earthquakes there either.  Maybe a little tornado, but a missile silo is a perfect defense for a tornado.

If you were a real militia type you could even hire mercenaries to defend the perimeter as they died from biological warfare as you made sandwiches and pretended to launch missiles from your retired missile silo.

You could well be correct, as I was just riding the apocalypse meme. In any case, when Yellowstone lets go we humans are going to get the ass-kicking from hell,so I sure hope we've wandered outbound from Ole Sol by then. ;)

I am not a volcano expert but everything I have read about the Yellowstone volcano says that it has the potential to kill everything for a 1000 miles. Even the straight up scientific stuff without all the fear mongering is horrifying to think about.

From wikipedia
The last full-scale eruption of the Yellowstone Supervolcano, the   eruption which happened nearly 640,000 years ago, ejected approximately 240 cubic miles (1,000 km3) of rock, dust and into the sky.

Extra whiskey, as I said, is a hedge against price increase and or discontinuation (or, drop in quality).

durbnpoisn: If Yellowstone blows up like it has in the past, all you'd be doing is choosing a slow death over a quick one. The Earth's ability to support life would be universally diminished. The biosphere of the entire planet would basically not be what it is right now. No plausable relocation efforts will do anything to help.

Sorry... But there you have it.


No. Large super volcano eruptions have taken place as recently as 75,000 years ago, and Yellowstone as recently as 640,000 years ago, with at least two other eruptions prior (source). None of the documented eruptions of Yellowstone or any other known super volcano have been associated with any mass extinction events. Even the Siberian Traps eruptions, which lasted over a million years and make Yellowstone look like a pimple, didn't manage to wipe out all life (although they did cause the Permian-Triassic mass extinction).

Sure a super volcano would be a global-wide catastrophe with weather patterns disrupted for years, but it would neither be the end of life nor human civilization.

I know a place, multiple generators, 400 million gallons of fuel, already a hardened facility including IR cameras and a command center with remote control of just about everything.

It's 20 miles from the nearest town on a dirt road, and nearest town is 2000 people.

It would be trivial to put up gunnery positions and dig in traps and obstructions.

There is already a large stockpile of food, water and water filtering facilities attached to the groundwater well.

It also has a fleet of heavy equipment, backhoes, shovel loaders and various trucks that all run on CNG.  The aforementioned fuel stockpile.

As well, it has a brush plane and landing strip.

Not to the extent of most of the people on this show who spend 10s of thousands of dollars. But yeah if Yellowstone blows its top in my lifetime I want to be able to get somewhere safe and survive for as long as I can.

I want to die as quickly as possible if that event occurs.

Hey, that's my plan too! Death Buddies! :P

My plan is to have enough beer on hand to keep me drunk for a good long time or at least up until the point where looters come and kill me for my beer.  I'm good for 6 months easy.

I know a guy who met a guy the other day that had a few pallets of beer in his barn.  I guess he gets it cheap, then him and his hands finish it off over the summer.

I'm ok with this.  I'm not there yet, but I did buy 6 cases of Yuengling the other day because it was $14 a case.  I already have many gallons of homebrew so if civilization goes to shiat I'm going out shiatfaced.

I've got to start my homebrewing again and fill my keg up.  Been at least a year.  I see they have wide mouth, screw on lid 6 gallon glass carboys now, I need a few of those.

I'm not an experienced homebrewer (started last year) but the horror stories I've read about glass carboys keep me solidly in the bucket and or plastic carboy camp.

??
My buddy uses glass carboys, and I've been helping him brew for 3 years.  Never any problems.

A few guys on homebrewtalk have dropped glass carboys and have had some pretty serious injuries (torn up tendons/ligaments, lots of stitches, etc.)

I'm a clumsy guy as it is.

Don't drink when you brew.  Put down a rubber mat in the garage.  Keep the outside of the carboys clean and dry.  Use a handle.



The first rule of homebrewing is that you must drinking copious amount of beer while brewing.

I bought an unused church and I'm in the process of establishing myself as the head of a charismatic cult.  Not only will I have numbers but I will have devoted followers who can only achieve salvation through me.


Do you have an End Time in mind?  A really good cult needs an End Time if it's gonna have any cult street cred.


If you're doing it as your prepper goal, I'd stray away from actually specifying a date.  "Oh, the apocalypse isn't until 5 years from now?  Well, we can do this this and that later."  No, a good prepper cult must be ever vigilant.

Also saves you from having to come up with an excuse as to why it didn't happen, if you live long enough to reach the date.

Kahabut: Preppers.  LOL.

I know a place, multiple generators, 400 million gallons of fuel, already a hardened facility including IR cameras and a command center with remote control of just about everything.

It's 20 miles from the nearest town on a dirt road, and nearest town is 2000 people.

It would be trivial to put up gunnery positions and dig in traps and obstructions.

There is already a large stockpile of food, water and water filtering facilities attached to the groundwater well.

It also has a fleet of heavy equipment, backhoes, shovel loaders and various trucks that all run on CNG.  The aforementioned fuel stockpile.

As well, it has a brush plane and landing strip.

/nope, not saying where.
//it's good to know people.
///not a military or government facility.


So have you stocked up enough guns to fight off all the other people who know about it and live a few miles closer than you?
 
2014-01-16 05:31:48 PM
We're not preppers in the sense those crazies are, but we do keep food, water, first aid stuff, guns & ammo around. Still need a generator (tho we do have a couple of large batteries & solar panels) & we'd like to bury a large water tank on our 2.5 acres.

Good thing about our semi-rural are is we know all the neighbors. Don't like all of them, but we know them.

If the SHTF, we all know which ones to take out first ;)

he's a level one sex offender who was convicted in 2009 of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, when he inappropriately touched a drunken 14-year-old girl in an Auburn parking lot. He was also convicted of stealing a motorcycle in 2009. - See more at: http://www.thedailysheeple.com/doomsday-prepper-and-convicted-felon-t y ler-smith-jailed-for-illegal-firearms_012014#sthash.PCaQl08J.dpuf

So common clay of the New West?

Reminds me of the guys who were pulling logs out of navigable waterways without getting permits on that logging.show.

Ok.  Dumb question, probably...but wouldn't they WANT you to pull logs out of a navigable waterway?


So it'd be more...I dunno...navigable?

Removing snags that have been there for decades can change the water flow and bottom structure for a considerable distance. You're supposed to get a permit so the state can go in and update charts.

Or the Man is keeping Real ' Merkans down.


Oh, yeah...that makes sense.  Loose logs are OK, I'd imagine?

Better than nothing. Get more beer though. I keep some stuff, but no bunker scene here. Did know someone who lived in a house built during the crazier days of the Cold War that had a bomb shelter. Cool little place, great ventilation system. Yes, we partied in it. There wasn't anything in it when they bought the house, so they just used it for storage. And other things.

Day 320: Having ramen noodles again. I think I hurt my tooth on a stone that was in last night's can of baked beans.

Day 330: Ten days now with this toothache. It's getting hard to concentrate on anything.

Day 350: I decided to use my pliers to pull the tooth. It was bleeding a lot, but I think I got it under control.

There aren't many places you could go or get to in the case the Yellowstone blew. It's considered an extinction level event if it were to happen. (at least according to the Earth Science classes and Geology classes in HS and college, and the Discovery Channel special about it)

MeatGazer: I'd LIKE to have the money for a bunker...  Because - hey!  Cool!  Bunker!

But the above poster is right.  If things are bad enough to warrant a bunker - things are quite bad indeed.  And being in a bunker may not make the best sense.  However, for us, having a bunker would serve as a storm shelter as we don't have a basement.  And the crawlspace just won't cut it (though it could...)

And we sure do need to keep a larger store of "extras" at the house.  We weren't home for the blizzard that hit after the new year - thankfully - but we'd have been hard up for water.  Granted, we'd keep the bathtub full - but the drain stop doesn't hold 100%.  We do have a natural gas fireplace insert that'll throw some heat and we could use the grill grates to fashion a cooking surface.  We could manage with the food we have on hand - but barely.

No money right now for a generator...   Would love to have even a small one to keep the fridge and the chest freezer running at least.  Having the money, though, a nice 22Kw tri-fuel generator would be pretty nice.  However - our power rarely goes out during even the worst of storms (including blizzard...) that one that big would be quite the luxury item.

Long and short - need to lay in some water storage and a bit more easily prepared foodstuffs.


MeatGazer, I'm not a prepper but I know a few and I don't think you would have to spend a lot of money for the things you said you would like to have.

No money for a generator? Do you have a car? It can drive 80 miles per hour up hill, it's a very powerful and efficient generator. For $16 - $50 bucks on ebay you can get a power inverter. Put that together with an extension cord and a power strip and you can run whatever you need. Your car can idle for days. Get a steering wheel lock if you're worried someone will steal your car in your driveway. Done.

Regarding bunkers, yeah they are expensive, unless you follow an army guide and make one under and old car or something weird like that. But you know, you could just get a tent or better yet just throw a $30 car cover in the back of your car. Now your car can be a shelter if your house isn't there. Ok that won't protect you  from a tornado if you're in your house, but it's something.

Regarding water storage, a bottle of bleach costs about $1.50, you could start with that. Bleach or water filters and or iodine water tablets are all more portable and easier then storing a lot of water in bulk. You can boil pond water if you have fire. And if you add a cap full of bleach to a bucket of water with a lid, it will stay just fine in your garage for six months. Get some bleach and a bucket. Done.

Regarding foodstuffs, that's where it gets expensive. But depending on what you buy, $200.00 food stuffs can be about 1 months food 4000 calories a day for two people. Peanut butter lasts forever and stores anywhere. Maybe be more creative then that. Sometimes Costco has incredible sales. Anyway food isn't that big of a challenge if you really want to have a little extra around.

So prep for "a basic prolonged power outage", "your house is blown away by a tornado", or" choking volcano dust blankets the country", or all three:
- Bleach $1.50
- Power inverter $40.00
- Car cover to turn your car into a shelter $30.00
- Steering Wheel lock $20.00
- Pack of dust masks for "volcano dust" or painting. $2.00
- Bucket or two for water and pond water+bleach if you run out. $4.00
- $200.00 food stuffs, 1 months food 4000 calories a day for two people.
Total:$297.50

There we have it, shelter, food, heat, power and light though some pretty bad prolonged outages, short of a massive flood. Sure you might need to buy an extension cord or some candles if you feel you need that. But my point is, these things aren't expensive and if you want these things you can have them. It's possible for your life to be robust without weird stuff like bunkers and gas masks.

ZeroCorpse: Or I could stay at a motel for $30 a night, or maybe drive across state and stay with relatives for a month if need be.


Well captain obvious, yes go to a hotel if you can. But yeah right, $30 a night is hard to find these days and definitely hard to find after a disaster. And disasters happen, last year, so long ago I know, everyone in my state was ordered to stay put during a massive snow storm and they were arresting anyone who didn't as a felony. The other year we had a snow storm that crippled power for half of the state for a few days too weeks in some places and travel was a challenge. And I'm going to guess that you didn't live in the south either when Katrina landed like I did. I don't know, but I'm guessing you haven't been in the situation where you were thinking about providing food for people hit hardest, because that's what I was doing. I'm going to guess statewide disasters, power outages and travel restrictions is something you don't have as much experience with.

But my experience is that these are things that happen once in a while and these things have happened in my life. And I'm not saying people should go all bunker crazy, but there is nothing wrong with taking advantage of the advantages you already have! Like being friends with your neighbors. Or spending $20 so you can use your car as a power plant when the power company is offline and you're ordered not to use the road. And why not? If you are stuck with no power and you have a V6 generator, why not use it!

I don't have a bunker, I'm not Mormon, but at the last statewide disaster I was passing out candles to neighbors who had no candles, no flashlights and no power. Most people aren't even prepared for the lights to go out. All I'm saying is you don't have to be bunker crazy to get through a disaster with a little dignity.

Anyway it's cool, I expected a lot more snarkyness then the one liner you gave me after my post.

Regarding this article. Hahaha. Dang, this prepper guy is someone who really can't manage to stay out of prison in the good times! He definitely isn't going to do well if times got difficult because communities stick together and that's not the kind of guy people like to have around!

Quote: "At a news conference at the MEMA bunker in Framingham, Patrick told reporters..." "If you don't have an exemption and you're caught on the road, the penalty could be as steep as a $500 fine or, at worst, a year in jail."

I remember a lot of media sources mentioning the year in jail threat and I believe one newspaper mentioned the word felony, but I can't reference it since I don't keep stacks of newspapers like some kind of crazy prepper! Hahaha :P

But the important thing to remember from this is that in an emergency you may be stuck where you are. A few years before there another blizzard that knocked out power all over the state. Though there was no travel ban, hotels all across New England were all full from families with kids and they were charging jacked up rates.
And I think schools my area were opening up cafeterias as warming shelters. Try Google if you need a reference.

Thanks for the power inverter idea, steam. My biggest fear is that when/if an earthquake hits is finding a way to power our fridge/freezers. I know my FIL has a generator, but I would like to have another option if need be. Our freezer is usually stocked and it would be nice to keep it running if we did lose power for an extended period of time.

//luckily here in CA, weather usually isn't that extreme. Even on our coldest nights, staying in our trailer with a few extra blankets wouldn't be terrible if something happened to the house. A tent would work for most of the year.

The opposite of this sums up my 'Bug Out Bag"
I have full medical field kit with lots of antibiotics, a couple of combi gold bars, water purifier, and 7 days of rations.
I figure I can trade medical skills for just about anything during the zombie Apocalypse.

jnapier: ZeroCorpse: Here's what I picture for most of these prepper guys.

Day 1: I have secured my bunker. I have enough food, water, and weapons to last 30 years.

Day 30: It sounds like the war is over, but the radio stopped broadcasting days ago. I'm not budging.

Day 104: I AM SO SICK OF WATCHING THE SAME VIDEOS OVER AND OVER.

Day 320: Having ramen noodles again. I think I hurt my tooth on a stone that was in last night's can of baked beans.

Day 330: Ten days now with this toothache. It's getting hard to concentrate on anything.

Day 350: I decided to use my pliers to pull the tooth. It was bleeding a lot, but I think I got it under control.

Day 358: Fever. Head hurts. Mouth is swollen. Infection? Need to check books. Antibiotics not working.

Day 362: i wir gggg  fggn die

Day 363:  [No entries from this point onward]

You should increase that by another 900 rounds. 100 rounds will go fast. Also, make it a mixture of target rounds and hollow points. You are still going to need to practice with it to keep your aim true.

SearchN: Wow. I honestly thought you were blowing smoke. My apologizes.


It's cool, that's the internet. I started to go overboard too with my "Try Google if you need a reference."

Hahaha, I love how this thread has degenerated into a discussion on prepping ideas, but why not.

Regarding backpacks full of ammo, I don't think walking around with backpacks full of ammo is a good idea. I don't know how much you should have for hunting but if it's for hunting, put it in a secure place in your hunting cabin, maybe buryable ammo cans. Maybe you're not in Alaska so I don't know if that's legal where you are, but I think people do that. Anyway if it's not for immediate use, then you're probably better off not carrying it around. That's what I think. I get the feeling having lots of ammo readily available isn't a good idea and you'll just lose it.

After Katrina the first thing the police did was raid homes to destroy legal gun owners guns and ammo. Lots of hunting equipment, antique guns and family heirlooms were destroyed, last I heard only a small fraction was returned years later. That pissed a lot of people off not just because their legal property was destroyed but also because at the time it meant that only the looters had guns. Katrina has a lot of messed up stuff, police taking guns from legal owners, the Danziger Bridge shootings with police shooting people trying to cross a bridge to the rich side of town. All kinds of messed up stuff. So anyway, my point is if there was a real emergency, I don't think walking around with backpacks full of ammo is a good idea.

Considering the weight, no, not a good idea. Only need to carry enough for a couple of magazines. The rest you stash.

Yes securing any ammo in a legal way makes much more sense then walking around like rambo. Though the mental image of that backpack did make me laugh! Lol :)

Agreed. Even a couple of boxes of ammo gets pretty damn heavy after a while. I can't imaging carry 1000 rounds.
