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):

My best attempt at an underground shelter on short notice working with what I have. I figure if our government has an October 1st deadline for so much I should do the same. I have a 40 ft shipping container and a 10 ft diameter by 12 ft tall tank which will have concrete poured over it by Wednesday. I know there's lots of things I could have done better but this is on a shoestring budget and time may be short. I'm four days into construction and should be done by Friday.

The shipping container and the tank were both here on my property when I bought it so I'm just working with what I've got and praying I never need it or if I do then I pray it's enough to shelter my family. 

After we pour the concrete I'll push at least 6 feet of fill dirt over the top of it, maybe more.

Here's a link to the build pictures of my 4x4 van so far. They probably are not in order and I haven't had time to edit descriptions but you can see what I'm putting together.

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.
