Anyone see this? http://www.nbc.com/revolution/
Basically, this guy busts in his home’s door and says to his wife “it’s going to happen soon” – then all the power goes out reminiscent of a EMP strike.
Here are my random thoughts:
Seriously dude? You know that civilization is about to end and you aren’t better prepared? He busts in with a small card board box – presumbly with some candles and peanut butter and nothing else? When he tells his wife she says “what is happening?” – What? Oh, nothing just the end of the f-ing world as we know it! Remember we talked about it but apparently did nothing to prepare for it! Idiot.
So I ask you… What would you do if you, and only you, knew that in 30 days the power to the entire world was going off and never coming back?
1) Gather weapons and ammo. All I could get and store. Beg friends and family to buy them for you (In California we can only buy a new handgun every 30 days). Or buy used firearms, no restriction there. Millions and millions of rounds. Get reloading equipment and know-how.
2) Gather equipment, information on procedures and know-how that doesn’t need electricity. Kilns, spinning wheels, farming, home-made remedies, building, hand pumps, etc…
3) Seeds. Heirloom and lots of them.
4) Clothing. Smaller sizes as you are going to lose weight.
5) Building Supplies. Wood, concrete, nails, hand tools, etc.
6) Medicine. Fake an infection and get to the Doctor. Then go to another until you have a good supply of antibiotics.
7) Run up your credit. No power? No records. Use your credit card to get as many supplies as you can. Use you cash to buy gold, silver, (or more guns!) etc….
8) Sell your house and buy a WORKING farm. Get a farm with livestock and ranch hands in place. When the shit goes down and they see you are prepared – they’ll stick around.
9) Gather your team. On the night the power is going off, invite selected members of society and their family to your home for a “big surprise” or “big announcement”. Invite doctors, surgeons, midwives, farmers, metal workers, contractors, ex or current military, anyone who will benefit your survival family. Once the grid goes down, they are stuck there and you all will band together to survive.
I WANT TO HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS ON WHAT YOU’D DO IF YOU HAVE 30 DAYS TO PREP FOR THE END OF POWER AND THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT
PREP HARD – PREP NOW
