Okay, many times on here there are discussions about buggin out. For many, that is the only oppertunity for survival. For others on here though, we are fortunate enough to be living in an area where we would be able to survive off the land. I know in my case I already have seeds, tilled ground, and natural water sources. That is not to say one would not encounter severe hardship or famine if not properly prepared. So, here is the idea of the thread. If you were to hunker down, what length of time would you plan to be self sufficient for and what would you be stockpiling and how much..... My family and I already practice a lot of more primitive skills all year around. We have a fully stocked root cellar, we keep bulk items on hand (Rice, Beans, Pasta, flour, yeast, etc) we can and dehydrate/smoke meats, dehydrate veggies and fruits, can veggies and fruits, we have chickens with a good egg production to feed 7 people (there are four of us). There are many freshwater springs around to keep fresh water on hand for drinking and cleaning and a river out back to keep water for non consumption needs. The house is fitted with wood/coal heat and it requires no power. I keep ample amounts of ammo on hand for all weapons. Overall, I am confident we can hold on for an indefinate period of time with our current supplies however I just have this nagging feeling in my gut I should be preparing for real long term isolation like what I have on hand is not enough.
