This post is for those who what to start preparing but just don't really know how to begin. And also to show you that everything I have been posting is not just for dramatic effect to see how many followers I can gain. I believe this will happen here is what i am doing.
Buy land out in the middle of nowhere. Get together with a group and everyone pitch in. The last place you want to be is anywhere near a city. If possible have a water source, if not, immediately have a water well drilled.
Here is what i bought about 18 months ago.
Weapons. This cannot be stressed enough. And not just owning but being proficient in their use. Having a pistol that you can't get the safety off in time, not knowing how to aim or clear a rifle jam really doesn't do you much good if SHTF. You must train to use it.
Different weapons. Shooting a 2 lb rabbit with a deer rifle at 25 yards won't leave you much to eat. You need different weapons for different things. Here are the main three i would suggest: pistol, long range rifle and AR15. Don't go exotic or you won't find replacement parts
Ammo. Stock up!! Ammunition will become like be like a currency (but don't ever give someone else a bullet that can be turned on you). Make your own, once you have the components, it is actually very easy to do and a hell out a lot cheaper.
Food Storage. The method i used for storage in these buckets has a 30 year shelf life. And that can be extended even longer in an underground storage area. Rice, beans, flour, etc. There are a lot of potential meals in each bucket.
Ham Radio and Medical supply bag. Ham radio will be one of the few ways to communicate. And speaking from experience, its a great way to meet other like minded individuals in the area where your land is at. Partnerships have already been made. get a fully stocked medicine bag
Here is where I am building a little barndominium. Think in military terms and chose a spot that can be defended. Get the high ground and clear out a fire line so something has to cross no-mans land to get to you.
if you have a water source, shock it to kill everything in it, then aerate and restock. there won't be any competition with your new fish. Proper aeration is the key and needs to be done from the bottom up. Aerating the top couple feet will just grow algae.
I designed one myself and tested in my parents pool. I am going to make a larger diffuser out of a PVC pipe lattice but this worked extremely well. Submerged aerators for this depth of pond were around $4k. I put this whole thing together for $600. Add another $400 solar power
A water well would have been $20k. So i went another way. I designed a solar and gravity pumped water filtration system taking pond water up 70 feet in elevation and through four filters so its as clean as aquifer water at the house. Less than $4k and easy to repair and maintain
I documented all this and will put together a pamphlet with everything, so when its ready, ill give out to anybody who would like one. some have asked why have all this stress of preparing. I said once I am finished, i wont be stressed anymore because i know its there. Prepare!!
