Something I don’t want to do is make anyone afraid. Fear isn’t useful, except as signal that something might be threatening our survival. It requires our attention for further verification and validation. If valid and verified, don’t prepare out of a sense of fear or panic. Do it from a positive, forward looking philosophy. Preparedness is neither a simple kit nor a Big Plan Up Front. It’s a mind set. Mostly, just get your survival development going and mind-set together. Roleplay some test runs with your family. Then get on with your life, without too many distractions and fear. You have done all you can.

The handy survival list (hardly complete, still needs a lot of improvements):

Hello all,

Jen told me about this group and I look forward to learning much here and sharing what I know as well. I'm going to introduce a blog on building "bug-out" vehicles and basic modifications anyone with a fair mechanical aptitude can accomplish. I personally have about 300 hours now into building one for my family, a 1 ton extended full size ford van with 4x4, skid plates and armor around key components, immune to EMP, able to ford 4' of water, does not require a battery to run, has a 600 mile fuel range, and several special features such as the ability to kill all exterior lights individually from inside, ability to drop an oil slick in case of pursuit, and ability to create a smoke screen behind me. Kind of James Bond toys but all easy to incorporate with the right parts. And of course almost all of these are features which I hope and pray we'll never need however if I had to I could load up my family of 5 and go cross country through nearly any terrain without needing a road to do so and all our camping equipment, survival gear, and 30 days of food and water are always on board so it's ready to travel at a moments notice when complete. At this point I'm probably 4 to 6 weeks from completion due to cash flow and weather working on it outside. Too bad the long summer days are gone now.

 Catching critters etc may not be up your alley but if you find yourself in the wild other means of sustenance may be very important

What do beer cans, car tires and water bottles have in common? Not much unless you're renegade architect Michael Reynolds, in which case they are tools of choice for producing thermal mass and energy-independent housing. For 30 years New Mexico-based Reynolds and his green disciples have devoted their time to advancing the art of "Earthship Biotecture" by building self-sufficient, off-the-grid communities where design and function converge in eco-harmony. However, these experimental structures that defy state standards create conflict between Reynolds and the authorities, who are backed by big business. Frustrated by antiquated legislation, Reynolds lobbies for the right to create a sustainable living test site. While politicians hum and ha, Mother Nature strikes, leaving communities devastated by tsunamis and hurricanes. Reynolds and his crew seize the opportunity to lend their pioneering skills to those who need it most. Shot over three years and in four countries, Garbage Warrior is a timely portrait of a determined visionary, a hero of the 21st century.
