I'm definitely a 2 and I don't think you EVER get to a 5. There's always something you could be building up. I've got some food and some water squared away. Garden's up and running. Been looking into more homestead type projects. Rain catchers, chicken coop etc.

And seeing as how this is FTF you know I've got the sticks that go bang! ;-)

I live in SE Florida and stay prepared in the event of a hurricane or if the SHTF. In both cases guns and ammo are as necessary as food and water.

I have just been offered a 45 watt solar panel set up for free. I plan on setting it up for my camper in a portable fashion.
You have no power, no indoor plumbing, no heat, no lights, no access to grocery stores, no access to gasoline?

Me? Preparations?

Well, we have 2 cans of beanie-wienies left over from a fishing trip 3 years ago. No can opener, tho. And Joe Biden said we don't need guns, so we got rid of those. I'm sure in an emergency, the government would be there to take care of us.

BTW, if you would like to drop by for a visit, glad to see you. Stop at the sign. Ring the bell, then walk on up the trail to the house. Be sure to STAY on the trail. We lost the last 2 UPS guys, and they will not send any more out.


BTW, a bit pricey, but fun reading- https://www.lehmans.com/

In my part of the country, your life expectancy would be measured in hours. You might successfully loot one place. But you'll die at the next one.

Well , ain't that a funny thing..! The power went out yesterday do to an ice storm. My truck ain't going nowhere cause it is solid ice out there.Cooking is on my propane three burner Coleman stove with oven. Sour dough bakin right now and it's a recipe I got here on this forum I think..? Save the water from boiled potatoes + starter , Mmmmm..!
Everything I don't want to freeze , is in my two large IGLOO Coolers with a change of warm water every 6 hours. For heat , I got three fire places and had to do this exact thing 1 month ago , 8 days. Just a way of life up here in the forest , falling trees etc. !

I pay close attention to weather trends + I have all my own little GIZMOS.!
My little Generator is running via , Here I am........!

We understand the indifference's of good ole Mother Nature and you better to live here..!!

GOOD LUCK ALL.........!

Latest Up-Date: Well , still no juice , "electricity". ! To manage consumption , I've resorted to my ole faithful hand pump.
I've a deep well water system , but won't flip the breaker to the pump. That hand pump pumps about 4.something per gallons a minute , which then flows into my basement. Tired from carrying water and fire wood , but all is well..!

That bread we made last night , Awesome...........!
