What's your plan?
#1
I'm sure this has been brought up here before, but lets discuss our SHTF plans! I'm kind of new to the ways of prepping but I see myself as more of a casual prepper. Nothing extreme but I want to have a solid plan for several scenarios that may affect my region.

My main plan is to bug in if something goes down. My house is on high ground and fairly well fortified. All my supplies are there so I will be hesitant to leave unless evacuation is mandatory. In that case, I have just started to build a evac bag utilizing a medium size frame-less ALICE pack. It's the perfect size to hold a dozen MRE's, medical kit, several staple tools (good knife, multi tool, screw driver set, hammer, duct tape and an entrenching tool) Iodine tabs and canteen along with 2 full face ventilator masks. Granted, depending on how much time is available during evacuation, we would try to grab extra supplies but if it was wake up, grab and go...this bag, along with the tens and some choice guns and ammo, should be able to keep my family of four going for several days on the road.

At this point, I have no where to bug out to so I would have to wait an evacuation out and try to get back home eventually. Worst case is a more permanent bug out to my work owned camp in Potter County. It's a shared camp but can accommodate up to 12 comfortably and even more with some sacrifices in personal space. So, that's my basic plan and I'll post some pics of my evac bag as soon as I complete it!

What are your plans?

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

We plan to stay put as well, since I'm prepping for a disruption to the power supply due to storm or something. We're in the process of getting a pop-up camper, so that will expand our options of being more 'self sufficient' and give us more amenities if we have to drive in some random direction to get away from some random event.

My survival plan is to declare myself 'El Presidenete/El Supremo' of a rural county, recruit an army, execute my enemies (I keep a list) and enslave enough of the population to plant my crops and tend my herds. Big Grin Tongue

Primary plan is to stay put with our supplies as long as practical. Depending on the scenario, we have identified several nearby places to relocate should the need arise. Any sort of major bug out is in my opinion an absolute last resort. I think the most likely scenario that would cause us to pack up and leave would be some sort of major nuclear emergency at Susquehanna.

Aside from any preparations I make myself, I also plan to kill and take supplies from people that let their guard down.



This provides a good illustration.

Plan to bug in first.

Food and water first. I have FIFO systems all around the house that I keep stocked with everyday food. Then I have long term storage food as a back up. I have started saving 2 liter soda bottles of water. Add a couple drops of bleach, and have them stashed all around the house. Plan on putting in rain barrels this year. Also started a garden, and plan on putting in more vegetables this year.

Bought a Propane powered generator. Heat the house with Propane so I have a lot of it on hand. Also, during no electric moments. I can take smaller tanks and still get them filled since most areas around here that do this, hand pump the propane out of bigger tanks into the small tanks.

Got a good BBQ and a decent camp stove that both run on Propane so I can cook food and heat water. Have a stash of smaller propane tanks that I buy any time I see them on sale.

Stocked up on candles. Lighters.

I go over various SHTF senerious. Long term power outage. Loss of water. Snow or ice storm where I'm trapped at home. ETC... and then try to figure out what I would need in each senerio.

Your thinking about it, so you're off to a good start. Now just keep adding to what you have and start buying the things that can come in handy when things go badly.

As for bugging out. It is a last case senerio. At which point I will grab what I can and head towards family that may not have been effected. I do have a tent and camping supplies that will allow me to go primitive if I have too, but that will be a last resort. I also have a camper that I could move to a location that may be safer. And at the same time. I could power up with the generator in the yard (or on the go) and my family could stay in and be safe and warm with all the facilities needed right in my yard if need be.

You would need a lot of money to just rush out and buy everything at once. But you have started to think about it. That is a good thing. Now start picking things up every time your out and about.

My Dad just bought a nice 18 foot camper complete with a toilet, small shower, kitchenette and generator. It's one of those cutaway Chevy van campers made in 1984. It has a 350 that should be sustainable for a long time! If things really get bad, we could live in that sucker! It will sleep 6-8 comfortably maybe more if they don't mind sleeping on the floor.
