    What to regard as needed -

    I am gonna put this here as I think it is the most relevant place.

    Preacherman, Peter ( a man who I regard as a friend), over on THR made a most (IMO) valuable post dealing with what to consider with emergency situations - what some may well call Bug-out materials and methods.

    I give the link cos I reckon that thread has much valuable material we could all benefit from. He is down in LA and is seeing much thru first hand and reliable second hand eyes and ears.

    Every so often the survival bug bites and THR has a ton of interesting stuff to read on the subject. Quite a few people are well experienced on food and water issues and other good stuff there. I like it!!!

    I looked at the first page of the thread and thought it was real good! (Jeez Chris, you just moderate all over the place! )

    One additional thought. Take your perscription drugs in the latest bottle/package you have. That will have any refills listed on the label. Also a "late date" may give you an edge if you run out and can get to a local hospital, as far as being able to show a Doctor that you are (currently) on the drug.

    I also didn't see a GPS unit mentioned, a car powered one could come in handy in areas you are not familiar with.

    Sorry - yeah I do get around, sometimes !

    Ahh yeah - GPS - good addition. I don't have a power lead formine so battery only but it seems to do good and long on one set. Spares of course always kept.

    May I add another thread Peter has posted - this time reflecting on some of the things he has first hand info on - some is stuff you probably won't have heard thru regular media channels.

    It does make you think and question is this really America? Strangers in a line of authority seperating family members and causing damage to their homes is only the tip of the iceberg. It would take a strong group with a good leader to combat those tactics pulled by strangers assigned as agents of the government.
    I have read the preachers writings and those of others in the know, really good and makes you think about how do I survive the future. After some period of time a survival reference book could be developed from those writings.
    See you Chris,

    Great writing by Preacherman. It sounds like we all need to be prepared to the point of self-sufficiency, don't tell the neighbors (go beg at their house before they come to yours, for show, of course) about your preparations and be prepared to reject any "rescue". I'm not sure this would be easy to do in a suburban environment, but in a rural area you might be better able to pull it off. Sure makes you think....

    Thanks, Chris, fascinating reading.

    MY wife and I were discussing the forced evacuations they are contemplating down in NOLA and I observed that if you were above the water table, had food, water purification, generator & fuel and guns to defend yourself like most survivalists do, why leave your home? The arguement the cops were using to get people to leave was "please write your SSN on yourself so when we find your body its easy to ID". I said most survivalists I know would have grabbed a marker, written the number on their arm and told the authorities to go help someone who needs it. Of course, any survivalist worth his/her salt left NOLA long before the masses did.
