RE: The RVF worst-case-scenario survival/preparedness thread.
Back when we had the 2008 economic crisis, I somehow started buying into all the doom and gloom stuff, and became a sort of prepper for a few years. I was convinced things were about to get worse, and you had (still do) doomers and fear mongers like Gerald Celente, Jim Rogers, Adam Schiff, et al really milking the moment and paint a picture of complete societal collapse. It all ended up being completely bogus, as we have enjoyed an unprecedented recovery in the last 10 years.

There are those who argue it’s all fake and will eventually come crashing down, all we did was delay the inevitable thru the Fed’s cheap money policies. That’s a good discussion to have, but to stay on this topic, after stocking my house with up to a year’s worth of food, water, and all sorts of other supplies and keeping that going thru about 2014, I realized I was totally overdoing it. Ended up donating a lot of the food and started enjoying life more.

But I’m still prepared, just not as hardcore. I have some freeze dried food in the pantry, I’d say about a month’s worth. 2 weeks of water. Batteries, flash lights, 2-way radio, a couple of first aid kits, a water filter. So if some big emergency happens, I can hunker down in my house for up to a month and survive.

But if things get so bad that you need more than a month’s preps, than we got bigger problems anyway.
