Step One in Getting Ready for the collapse:
1~Water: You will need 1 gallon a day per person in your group, and you will want to cover at least 30 days. (you need to have a water filter like a Berkey or Dalton)
2~Food: Freeze dried and canned is the best, but dry bean and rice and some canned foods are just as good. You will want a mix of foods and they will need to be easy to cook and store. With your food preps you will want Salt, sugar, pepper and other additives to enhance the taste of your food. As with the water you will need 30 days of food.
3~Survival Gear: A good stock of needed gear is a must! And the rule Two is one and one is none is very true! So have a back up for the back up.
Flashlight with batteries
Knife- Mora, Pocket, Survival and swiss army
Hand Camp Saw
Tarps (more than one and a few sizes)
