When calamity strikes you’ll still need to eat and if there are no shelters in the vicinity stocked with emergency supplies what are you supposed to do? The answer is the Food Insurance bug out bag that provides you with copious amounts of prepared food sealed in vacuum pouches and ready to be eaten. Every Food Insurance meal has a shelf life of more than a decade and requires only a bit of water to prepare. Everything from lasagna to omelets to rice and beans are here along with the stove to cook them. Add some of your own survival gear like a tactical flashlight, survival knife, emergency blankets and water filter and you’re ready for whatever comes down the pike.

Essentially, get the basics such as medical and survival equipment, some backup communications, spare cash, change of clothes, and copies of documents. Put them into an easy-to-reach place, ready to go. Inventory this bag and put the list into your overall emergency plan. If you don’t know exactly what you want to pack, you can get kits such as this 4 Person Survival Kit, already made up for you to start.


Cause let’s face it, nothing lasts forever, no system, no gouvernment, no civilization, there is ALWAYS a pattern of rise, bloom, and downfall. I believe we have started the ‘downfall’ part of the cycle. No one knows how long it will take, but I have an eery feeling I will still experience it (I’m 20 now, so still many years ahead of me). Pollution, economic system, politics, it is all slowly spiraling out of control.

There are two main aspects to becoming a successful prepper. The first is the storage of resources. Our goal is to be prepared for a disaster that potentially leads to a lack of access to electricity, to clean water, and to food. To be prepared, we need to figure out what we can live without, and start to store up some of the things we can’t live without. Food and water are probably the first things you think of, but you also need to think about first aid and medical needs, items that help with light and heat, and so forth.
Each new world is randomly generated, making for a different experience every time. There can be plains, rivers, beaches, ravines, giant mountains, hidden villages, and a lot more. There are also 38 biomes, which includes snow, desert, forest, swamp among others. Each one has its own set of unique blocks, plant life, and creatures. You won't get tired of exploring above ground or underground because every location will seem new and exciting. See More
With the world seeming to become a more volatile and dangerous place with every encroaching year, it can be hard to know exactly where you can feel safe. The modern media is overloaded with stories about violence, crime, and sensational pieces on the worst people in our society. But there have to be some places within the United States where the chances of anything like that happening to you is next to impossible, right?

However, I do have a medical background (combat medic, EMT, surgical nurse). My suggestion to you would be to learn basic first aid, and assemble an advanced first aid kit (try some websites that cater to military, and look for CLS training books and med kits). While I think that it admirable that people want to have surgical kits and such, they are not really useful (quite the opposite actually) if you do not know how to use them. So I would recommend getting a trusted friend with advanced medical skills to come live with you in the event of a catastrophe. Make your site their bug-out location, and assign them the responsibility of preparing advanced medical supplies.
A very detailed and extensive list! But the only problem I have is all the electrical stuff. When we had survival training after qualifying, We were very limited in the tools they gave us, but we managed (basically eating everything we could). When hiking/camping for several days we always have the best experience without bringing any electrical gear.
Living below your means is always a good idea. Why? Because you never know when its going to hit the fan that’s why. Having something in your back pocket and tapping it is good security in itself. The JOB stands for Just Over Broke or Journey Of Bondage. When your tethered its like a big neon sign that says bend over and up it comes, aka UAW. We like to think of ourselves as all secure. Guess what, not. With every kind of tax on us under the sun if you don’t watch out your gone the same as a fart in the wind and not even missed.
Many people, even relatively experienced preppers, often take the first three things for granted, stock up on a bunch of canned goods and assume they’ll survive whatever’s coming. Most other prepping focused websites will spend a bunch of time talking about food storage and preservation, but will neglect the importance of the first three points (and in particular, the importance of breathable air and safe shelter are dangerously overlooked).

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.
If you’re content with fighting against disease, bodily functions, and zombies who occasionally phase through walls, you’ll get to DayZ’s best feature: exploration. The world of Chernarus is a Soviet wasteland, and Bohemia has captured that Eastern Bloc atmosphere with the towns and villages around the map. DayZ’s forests feel genuinely life-like rather than being man-made imitations, while there’s a true sense of isolation out in the wilderness.
