10_1_136.gifHi Roger,

I agree with you. I could not afford the expense myself. By the way, I do have to change the location of my cute blonde because it may tend to give a whole new meaning for preparing. The chart that you supplied is more in line with what I have in mind. As I have been watching videos I have noticed that when they show paper products that are not protected. I believe that it is important for people that are preparing for the future to safeguard their investments. There are large garment bags that are not that expensive that are large enough to accomodate at least three packages of 12 double roll toilet paper or six packages of paper towel four packs. The other suggestion that I am trying to make is to shop at discount stores where you will save money. In the U.S. we have stores such as Big Lots, Family Dollar, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, and more cropping up all the time. There are also Railroad Salvage stores as well. These stores by out companies that are going out of business for pennies on the dollar. Therefore, they can sell their products much cheaper then retail stores. People are buying 5 and 10 gallons of water that can ad up. We have about six containers of extra water on hand. When we finish the milk in a one gallon jug, I rinse the jug out the best that I can and fill it with tap water. For larger items like generators, I would suggest going to an Army Surplus store and save even more. You can also find sleeping bags and blankets there as well. Adding to the list at my introduction a lantern like this cost around $16.96 and includes an am/fm radio, flashligh and lantern. It takes 3 D batteries not included.lanternwithradio.jpgSo basically what I am saying is that for those that do want to plan for the future, don't panick and don't buy the first item you see. If the power is out you will need a radio to find out what is going on. You will also need a flashlight to see in the dark and a lantern or other large light to give more light to your surroundings. It just seems to me that all three in one is going to be a lot less expensive then buying seperately. It is still a good idea to keep flashlights on hand as well. Most Dollar stores have them for either $1.00 each or two for $1.00.

I am hoping that I hear from people that are already doing this so that they can help others in knowing what they will need and the best (least expensive places) to get them. Sort of like friends helping friends.

GOD BLESS YOU

10_1_136.gifThis is a message for everyone,

If you sell or are affiliated with companies that sell survival gear, feel free to post it here. Please keep in mind that I am affiliated with My Food Storage foodstorage.gifand it would be rude to display your gifts on my thread. If you are affiliated with companies that supply sleeping bags, large storage bags, or other related items, even other food supply items, that would be fine. I just want to help as many people as possible to take the least expensive and time consuming steps as possible to prepare themselves. If there are community shelters that are already established that you need to sign up for to be members, we could use that information as well. My intention here is to prepare for unexpected storms or the inevitable rise in food prices, however I will not rule out alien invasions either. This is a subject that is not discussed that often, however not talking about it is not going to make it go away. Thank you for your co-operation.

GOD BLESS YOU

~Mike~

Check out my offers and shop around. Compare prices and do what's best for you.

smogmeinichols3.jpgI don't know if this has been wide spread or local, however there seems to be a trend for creating recipes for Bugs as a great source of protein. Why the sudden interest in eating bugs? Please understand that none of us are ever told the complete truth of anything, however I for one do not want to eat worms, Grasshoppers, Beetles, or slugs. It is either we begin to think seriously about our future or grow a liking for bugs.

Thank you Mike for this thread! Like Branka I am not one to get excited about
Dooms day kind of stuff. I did not go all out in preparation for Y2K or
The Mayan Calendar - predicting the end of the world. However,

I learned a lot in the Boy Scouts early in life.
I remember today and live by the Scout Oath, Law, Motto and Slogan:

SCOUT LAW

A Scout is
TRUSTWORTHY. A Scout tells the truth. He keeps his promises. Honesty is part of his code of conduct. People can depend on him.

LOYAL. A Scout is true to his family, Scout leaders, friends, school, and nation.
HELPFUL. A Scout is concerned about other people. He does things willingly for others without pay or reward.
FRIENDLY. A Scout is a friend to all. He is a brother to other Scouts. He seeks to understand others. He respects those with ideas and customs other than his own.
COURTEOUS. A Scout is polite to everyone regardless of age or position. He knows good manners make it easier for people to get along together.
KIND. A Scout understands there is strength in being gentle. He treats others as he wants to be treated. He does not hurt or kill harmless things without reason.
OBEDIENT. A Scout follows the rules of his family, school, and troop. He obeys the laws of his community and country. If he thinks these rules and laws are unfair, he tries to have them changed in an orderly manner rather than disobey them.
CHEERFUL. A Scout looks for the bright side of things. He cheerfully does tasks that come his way. He tries to make others happy.
THRIFTY. A Scout works to pay his way and to help others. He saves for unforeseen needs. He protects and conserves natural resources. He carefully uses time and property.
BRAVE. A Scout can face danger even if he is afraid. He has the courage to stand for what he thinks is right even if others laugh at or threaten him.
CLEAN. A Scout keeps his body and mind fit and clean. He goes around with those who believe in living by these same ideals. He helps keep his home and community clean.
REVERENT. A Scout is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties. He respects the beliefs of others.

SCOUT OATH OR PROMISE

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.

SCOUT MOTTO

Be Prepared

SCOUT SLOGAN

Do a Good Turn Daily

Some things may seem expensive at first glance but it may be the difference in
driving a relatively new car vs. a clunker.

Things are not always what they appear to be on the surface.

Things are not allways what they appear to be on the surface.

10_1_136.gifHi Ken,

Thank you so much for your contribution. Those are good rules to follow. I am not thinking so much about Doomsday as I am about weather problems. Here are two videos about the recent Oklahoma Tornadoes. I hope they come up.

When you live in an area that is prone to Tornadoes, Earthquakes, Hurricanes, or Wild-Fires it is best to have some type of survival plan. The Governor of Oklahoma has said that none of the schools had survival shelters because they were not required. It seems that some of the children that died were in a hall when the roof collapsed and the water main broke, drowning them. If there were designated shelters in the building they could have survived. Tornadoes hit at ground level. The Governor also said that upon re-building the schools there will be shelters and she also said that when the sub-division was rebuilt that she wants shelters built as well. I remember when I lived in Texas in a Mobile home park there were two survival shelters on the property. One was on my lot. We never had to use them, however they were there if we did need them. Houses with basements are very good for this purpose. In the apartment complex where Shirley and I live, what attracted me most about this complex is that there is a survival shelter in every building. Each section has eight apartments, four on the first floor and four on the second floor. We are in apartment A and the shelter is located right outside our apartment door. Oh, I forgot to mention. Each shelter has three locks that are locked at all times, so you can't get in. If a Tornato hit on the weekend there is a maintenance man that lives on the property. If you called him to unlock the shelter you would probably not reach him. He would be in his shelter.

I believe that by using the Boy Scouts handbook you could rectify this situation. If each tenant did their part, you could ride out the storm in safety. Assign each tennant to collect certain items. You have eight tennants. One collects batteries and flashlight or lanterns, another collects dry goods like toilet paper and perhaps paper plates, someone else collects food items, ect. The tennant closest to the shelter holds the key to the lock, and whatever item they are assigned to collect. The next thing on the agenda would be to know which of your neighbors are disabled and make sure that they are the first to enter the shelter. No plan is foolproof and no one can predict when disaster will strike. Therefore try to have everyone's cell phone number. Call each one on the list as soon as you know there is an empending disaster. In this way, if someone is away from home, you have a list of the items that they would be supplying. Ask others on the list if they have any of those items. Be sure to have a radio so that you know when the disaster has passed. Perhaps by the time you exit the shelter everything that you own may be gone, however material things can be replaced, lives cannot. So, rather than looking at long term scenerios, concentrate on the near future. Don't be like the man on the roof that drowned because he refused the rowboat, the motorboat and the helicopter because GOD was ging to save him.

GOD BLESS YOU

I know that many people will read this and say that this would be a dumb plan because neighbors don't care about each other, however that attitude does have to change because there are too many violent Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Earthquake, and Wildfires happening lately and we all have to change our attitudes if we want to survive. Look at all the acts of kindness that are still being played out in Oklahoma. We all have the ability to show kindness towards one another. Instead of waiting for a disaster to strike, why not show small acts of kindness now and see what a wonderful feeling it could be.
