Okay, I am trying to figure out some things and I would like your input on these following questions. What is the length of time you would prepare for? Be it 4, 7, or 20 years, your choice on years. How much ammo should a person stock for defensive use and hunting per year? What would your prep list look like? And if you could make one and post it, that would help. All of this is based on the following scenario.... You have known that this day would come, though you hadn't thought it would be this bad. What happened is you had prepared to face the longest forseeable disaster of a nuclear fallout (such as in Lights Out) though you didn't expect it all to go so wrong as this. What happened? Well, the country was attacked by a foreign enemy with nuclear weapons causing MZBs and EMP. This led to a weakening of the government and around the world the monetary value of cash went into the gutter rapidly. While we were asking for aid from other of our 'allies' they were attacked as we no longer could provide a stable voice to the world so destruction and chaos reigns. There is a worldwide epidemic of breakdown. All countries were nuked and all cash is worthless. There has been nuke strikes, famine, disease, poverty and to top it off, earth was hit by a meteor. We are living in a winter wasteland with super gangs and no backup. Soldiers deserted after many months of trying to control looting in order to defend their families. So now it is just you and those that you choose to protect. Everyone else you chance to meet is a potential enemy of your community. So, based on the scenario, how would you prepare? Please give me your ideas. I am at a loss for my own in some things. Thanks ahead of time. And may the shwartz be wit yoos.
