This game is the realistic version of Minecraft. Game customization allows you to play the game in Creative mode up to Realisticly Hard with running zombies. You can play with only walking zombies if you want. The game relies on one player being the Host and it autosaves. Unlike Minecraft, it offers skills that you can level up as well as points you can use to speed up skills. I recommend playing this with a friend. Survival is not fun alone. See More
It is easy to improvise most things on this list but some can’t be improvised so easy on the go, thing is if you are bugging out to a safe area you can possibly keep things minimalist, and if you are lucky enough to legally obtain firearms then a reliable compact pistol such as a Walther P22 or Springfield XD 40 can be teamed up with either take down .22lr rifle (AR7-1022tdr) or .40S&W carbine so you can have close in capabilities and also reach beyond the typical shotgun toting highway raider.
I just bought property and I built a home far from any city (its actually on its own Island in Alaska) I have my own river for fresh water, a greenhouse and gardens as well as renewable power (windmills, dam, and solar panels). plus being as I live in Alaska I have plenty of guns and ammo for hunting. I own a fishing boat as well so food will be abundant as long as I can use it. I am completely self sufficient out here. BUT, I need to known if there is a list of things that I should have. The food is stocked for two years or more, but I want livestock ideas as well as ideas of medical supplies ect. Please let me know if there is any such list.
Have been prepping for about two years. Have an abundant supply of food, water, weapons, etc. Problem is our home is indefensible. We are in the Casa Grande area of Arizona and would like to find an affordable bugout location to build a more defendable home or to share an existing site with like minded people. Have no problem with leaving Arizona if need be. Would also like to be able to talk with like minded people in our area.
Tent: In many emergency situations, shelter may be hard to find. While packing a traditional tent may not be a viable option, a good bug out bag should always include a waterproof survival tent. The best survival tents are made of Mylar, which can retain heat and repel water. Pro-tip: Be sure to stack leaves, grass or anything else from around the campsite against the tent for added protection from the elements.
The APN exists to help people learn about Prepping and to facilitate them becoming Self Reliant through increased personal responsibility.  If you have, or are gaining, a personal belief that it is up to you to provide for you and your family in difficult times – then you are on the path to becoming a Prepper!  If you want to quickly read more about why you should be a Prepper, check this out.

I agree with all except this one, “you should carry a water filter instead.” That water filter does NOT filter viruses which can incapacitate or kill just as quickly as can the bacteria it does eliminate. Carry purification tablets & a couple gallon sized double-ziplock baggies or an aluminum/titanium pot (multiple uses) or learn about SODIS instead. Why plan to fail?

For me, a walk out would be a huge barrier to overcome, and the potential for catastrophy is in all likelihood a given outcome. Vehicular Bug Out is the only option in that case, and it may not be the option we’re presented with. Bugging In, if possible, is the best option then, even if a power outage is a permanent feature. The pros still outweigh the cons.
Look for a pack that has multiple compartments, with pockets and organizers built in to help keep track of the small items, and try to pack your BOB strategically with items grouped that you’ll use together. Remember to pack clothes and bulky items on the bottom and heavier items at the top for better weight distribution and to ease the strain on your body.  
You will be able to prep only at the basic level (to withstand about a week or so of unrest, Im speaking of civil unrest. Any type of chemical or nuclear attack and it is very unlikely you will not survive in an apt structure) You need two weeks of food and water–long term food storage items, not items from the local grocery store. You also should purchase a gun for each of you and take some shooting classes at the shooting range. Lastly, You need to stock up on any perscription medications you take on a regular basis, you can accomplish this by ‘losing’ a perscription every now and then and having the pharmacist replace it. You should have no less than 6 months of perscriptions even if you only have limited food and water–it can also be used to bargain with later. Best of luck to you.

These days news carries quicker via modern tech such as mobile phones and social media networks, this modern equipment maybe the only way you can get news early into any disaster, news that could be vital to your survival by giving you the information needed to decide how to proceed in the safest fashion, such as government advice what to do based on the information they have but you do not.
Sheila,  I am in exactly the same position as you.  I am 62, a retired RN, living in a FEMA trailer in a RV park.  All the residents here are full time. I don’t even have a vehicle. Circumstances can be rough, especially with no real income beyond survival expenses.  Can you have a garden?  What about foraging, dehydrating, canning anything that you don’t immediately use. I am including my email. Contact me if you wish.  It seems we may have similar problems but many of the same solutions!  culversonrn@gmail.com
The biggest misconception about bug out bags is the idea that the contents in and of themselves will be enough to keep you alive. The truth is that the contents of your bug out bag are only as good as the individual using them. If you don’t know how to make the most of the contents of your bug out bag or ration them appropriately, they won’t help you survive any more than a firearm without any ammunition. You should always take the time to familiarize yourself with the contents of your bug out bag and feel comfortable using everything so that you’re best prepared when TEOTWAWKI does occur.
Terraria is a sandbox platform-adventure game, so it partly hinges on beating various bosses. If you play it purely for the sake of defeating all the bosses, you might have little else to do afterwards. Restarting the game won't be as enjoyable either because you'll already know what to expect, causing continued play without a new goal feel mundane or boring. See More
Astroneer isn’t quite as bleak as most other survival games, despite being just as treacherous. There’s a gorgeous low-poly art style that promises to soothe you as you crest every new horizon, and then there’s the fact that you can have your pals join you at any time thanks to drop-in/drop-out co-op. There’s a sense of progression in Astroneer, too, as you can eventually blast off and start colonising the other six planets in your solar system, providing tangible goals for you to work towards rather than mere existence.
Design – The best bug out bag is one with plenty of pockets. This allows you to compartmentalize your bug out bag essentials so that you know exactly where everything is and you don’t have to dig through mountains of other stuff to find what you need. Put all your fire and light things together such as tactical flashlight, candles, headlamp, fire starting kit and storm proof matches. Put maps, GPS devices, compass and other navigation related items in their own pocket and so on. The more you can separate things the easier it will be to transcend your difficulties.
We actually have an entire section on the site dedicated to the steps you need to take to cover your basic needs as dictated by the survival rule of three – food, water, and shelter (and breathable air). It covers all the survival skills and knowledge relevant to self sufficiency in these areas. If your goal is to go beyond being a prepper and you want to be a true survival expert, definitely check out that section of the site and read everything you’re able to.

I’m a single mother of a (almost 5 year old), I live with my parents on a 9.5 acre ranch about 45 minutes to an hour North-West of the heart of Houston Texas and one of my greatest concerns are hurricanes. My parents grew up close to the border of Louisiana, they have survived several hurricanes by either purchasing a 3-5 day supply of survival goods & riding out the storm OR by evacuating. Since we live out here my families first choice is ALWAYS hunkering down & riding out the storm (while its scary during the storm, I prefer this choice because we are home, we can begin repairs immediately as well as defend our home from criminals targeting victims who felt evacuating was necessary) My dad wants to purchase a Generator and thinks that this is prepping. Short-term this is fine however, I remember when Katrina hit New Orleans and then Ike hit Galveston/Houston, our roads were clogged with people evacuating, Gas stations were out of Gas and still crowded, people were scared & nervous, tensions were high… needless to say on both occasions it was scary. I want to prep Not only for hurricanes but just about anything that can and most likely will turn the unprepared hords of people into Mobs that are scared and desperate. Ive tried talking to my parents about the importance of preparing for a natural event and/or any other cataclysmic event that would cause this to happen, and what we should do to prevent our family from becoming victims not only from what could happen but from the people but my parents think that buying a generator and filling a plastic Rubbermaid storage bin with what the National Hurricane Center suggests to prepare for hurricane season is good enough. They have mentioned how it’s not likely that anything is going to happen (personally I feel that it’s arrogant to say that nothing will happen… Something is EVENTUALLY going to happen) and we shouldn’t be worried because we do have weapons to defend ourselves (but no ammo… cuz that’s so useful) and we have some land so we can just grow vegetables get a cow and become self reliant (with is good but without practice and preps we won’t last a week… plus, where are you going to get a cow when everyone is freaking out?) They have also mentioned before that my “ambitious” thoughts for prepping is expensive and time consuming… my thought on cutting cost is that we have tons of stuff around our ranch that we don’t use, that we could sell and use the money for our preps, and the space that is being occupied with this “stuff” is where I want to keep my preps. MY question is, how do I convince my parents that we need to prepare for self reliance in the event of a hurricane (or series of hurricanes in one season) or any other event? And if I can’t convince my parents to start prepping with me, what can I do to start prepping that will also help my parents start prepping? My mom grew up learning how to make preserves & other homemade canned goods, should I ask her to teach me? I have been reading articles and learning on how to prep, what we need, our food/water preps as well as replenishment, what to do, where to go (if we have to bug-out) ect. but it seems like I can’t get my plan up & off the ground without my parents (or at least their support). I believe that being self reliant is important however being on a 9.5 acre ranch with my mother, father, daughter and sister, my family is my community, they are the people that I will need in tough times and the only ones I will be able to trust, they are also the reason why I want to start prepping. So any advice, information or help that anyone has to offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
Size – Everyone overestimates how much they’re carrying when they go backpacking (if everyone who claimed to carry a 100 pound pack actually did we’d have thousands of hiker deaths every year in the US alone). But a survival situation is one time when you need to be cold-light-of-day honest about how much you can carry and what that load should be comprised of to give you the best possible chance of survival. As a general rule you shouldn’t carry more than 15 or 20% of your body weight, which for most people will be between 20 and 40 pounds. With this in mind you’ll want to take into consideration the weight of the pack itself (which must be deducted from the total load) and its volume so that you wind up with a bug out backpack that can carry the appropriate amount of supplies.
What makes it stand out among its peers is an incredibly fastidious metabolism system which makes Scum a sort of simulation game that fully tracks what you eat, drink, and excrete. Eat many more calories than you’re burning off and you’ll get fatter, eat less than what you’re burning off and you’ll have no energy and gradually lose weight. But it’s a lot more complicated than that: you’ll have to watch your vitamin levels, stomach, intestine, bladder, and colon volume, and ensure that you eat well in advance of needing energy as it takes time for your body to process anything you put into it. Scum puts the hunger and thirst mechanics of other survival games to shame. There are rewards for taking care of your body, too, as a fitter characters deal more melee damage, run faster, and possess better weapon handling than their emaciated or overweight counterparts.
