    Odd items needed for the end of the world?

    I was proudly looking over the SHTF supply stash. Weapons & ammo-check, Food rations & toilet paper-check, etc. The wife walks in and says "What about my monthly female needs?" Oops! So I asked her to take care of that for me. So I was wondering what else I'm I overlooking?
    Besides the basics, what obscure items have you acquired to be prepared for emergency situations? Of course I'm assuming you are a doom & gloomer, the world as we know it is going to end guy like me.
    A couple odd things I have in storage is vegetable seeds and 2-stroke oil mix for the chain-saw.

    Almost as important as duct tape is WD-40.

    The good thing about living here in South Florida, is that we are prepared ... a hurricane can bring a (temporary) end of the world.

    A few years ago, we were without power for 24 days and without phone (cell or landline) for over 2 weeks; that's when a ham radio station comes in handy. Something I've not seen discussed here.
    It was interesting, especially since we have well water !!!

    Actually, duct tape, WD-40, and a hammer...the complete 'fix it' kit.

    How about a fishing tackle? Some lures? Some sting and hooks anyway. Seems right up there with seeds; which are a great idea. (Unless the shtf in January and you live in Minnesota.)

    A couple of years back my friend and I did a wilderness kayak camping trip. We loaded those touring kayaks front and back with all the conveniences of modern life; including meals ready to rehydrate and a safe-water filter.

    Well, sitting around the campground we got to thinking about how we might manage without any of that cool stuff from the sporting goods store. Clearly, our ancestors and our native Americans did it. Could we?

    Could we?
    I could and do frequently. Me and a few friends do what we call "survival camping" on occasion.

    Using little more than a sleeping bag, a poncho, and some firearms, we have learned over the years to hunt,trap and fish like our lives depended on it. We can make fire using nothing but flint, cook whatever we kill without utensils, and stay warm and dry in most weather.

    Of course, living in the Ozarks, we have a pretty ideal situation with lots of creeks,shelters and wildlife.


    For fishing tackle, trotlines are the best as will as treble hooks. Limb lines work well and in a true SHTF scenario treble hooks work well to trap various game animals.We are talking survival here, when the laws arent going to matter.
    With some skill,which few people actually have today, its not hard.

    I'd much rather take my chances in the wilderness, instead of fighting the mad hordes that will be in the citys.

    A small bow saw blade, hack saw blade, handfull or roofing tackswith rubber grommet. These can be used to make saws using wood for handles that is collected when needed.

    A 4ft by 4ft piece of plastic that can be used to collect water in desert type area.

    collapsable shovel

    50 ft of para cord (min)

    50 ft of climbing rope (min)

    Small tarp.

    Wool blankets, at least 1 per person. Wool can be wet but will still keep you warm.

    Binoculars. If things are really bad you may need to keep a look out for dangerous people. They also will assist in hunting for animals.

    Why do I use 230 gr. for my .45acp?
