One of the best books to invest in. This books covers all the stuff us "oldies"
called common practice way back when from canning, well digging to making clothing. I highly recommend it.

My next step is doubling my food supplies, topping off ammo & basic sustenance supplies, packing up a REAL Bug bag and having a basic plan in place if phone communication was cut out. All the loose ends that could turn chaotic if I dont plan them out ahead of time.
Assuming this "mass scale" catastrophe were to destroy organized government and infrastructure, leaving us in a primitive, anarchist society without utilities and transportation (after the tanks run dry).....
While some of you cower in your basements rationing food and watching your children's bodies digest themselves into atrophy as you cling to a can opener and sacrifice all for just a few more days of life; outside the safety of your bunker, life will go on. I will be sure to engrave "morally superior" on your headstone.
Meanwhile, I will exploit every available resource to survive. I will attempt primitive agriculture. I will hunt, gather and scavenge for food. If I have to lie, cheat, steal or kill to prevent it, my children will not starve. Even after I expire, my DNA will continue into the new world. Mankind will rebuild. We will struggle. Life will go on.... Because of those of us who lack your moral superiority. Enjoy that case of Dinty Moore beef stew. And be prepared to defend it.

Just a word of advice............ Don't come looking for my can of stew. I'm a very possesive SOB.And a cranky ole bastage with a S&W that I shoot very well.

Way to show your true loser colors Mister "Coolguy"

It would be morons like you with that narrow thinking that would keep the country from flourishing. Its amazing that you openly admit you would lie, cheat, and steal your way to survival. And if you came knocking on MY door looking to swipe my goods, you would meet the business end of my barrel. Just sayin
