    Quick, fire off three things you need to fix to be better prepared. Some of us need more food, others arms and ammo, some need better skills in certain areas, folks may want better gear/armor/boots, fuel supplies, solar/hydro/wind power set-ups, BOL or relocation from urban areas.....and so on.
    What say you?!

    The last one would cover the prior two ;) But seriously, more land would be the thing lacking...followed by youthful vigor.

    I'm the only shooter in the house.
    I have limited water storage, ~100 gallons.
    I have no stand-by power for my refrigerator/freezer, except to move everything into the 5th wheel.

    I throw nothing away capable of holding water, I'm re filtering every thing SOP just before I use it .
    Having dirty water is miles ahead of none at all.
    What's funny is I found jugs my dad filled in the 1980's stashed all over the place here.
    Not so much for drinking mind you, but for cooling things off. (welding and cutting steel.)

    Okay Chello, I'll bite... What is that photo? I can't make it out. It's either a testing ground for explosives/artillery or very large ground hogs.
