So Called Preppers Are Going To Starve

Kevin, at survivalistboards, has some news for so-called preppers who only concentrate one one small aspect of prepping, such as firearms and ammunition, or food storage. If you are not looking at long term survival skills and needs, you will not survive. Prepping is about the long term, not the short term.

    Well…., not everyone has what this man has let alone a helicopter to drop one off in the city so you can work. If anything clean air in the city is what a person will need while harsh fighting goes on. Remember the city consist of all kinds good and bad.
    Without clean air no one is going to use their bug out bag because bad air alone will kill them and their unauthorized out of zoned chickens too, I would assume. So while some enjoy their chicken gumbo remember your neighbors cause no man is an island, I heard, chicken or no chicken. And stock up on respirators so you can eat later on. Air quality is vital. Yeah, he hit nerve.

      HUH ? Well yeah, people need to breathe to live. I would guess that maybe 1 % of the die off will be due to lack of Oxygen / intake of bad air.
      BTW, did you know that the Clean Air Act of1965 got rid of 95% of air pollution ? Everything since then is just about controlling the people.

        On a scale of 1 to 10 how bad do you think the air will be to breathe in a total war zone, bomb drops, tanks, buildings crumbling and smoke from massive fires in a large city? I thought it was bad when I could not make our the high rises in the city skylines just 4 miles away when massive fires burned 100 miles away months ago that lasted weeks. It was creeping into the house and one had to be quick to run in and out to your cars and wear a simple mask or cloth. It was nasty. Anyway, some of us so called preppers know we would starve. The guy in the tape came across as if pouring salt in a wound. I do miss being asleep! Thanks for the info.

          I believe that the main problem fire fighters have is smoke inhalation. So yeah, you will not live long breathing in toxic stuff. I believe the guy in the video was mostly trying to tell people that just having lots of guns and ammo is not really being prepared for a wide range of possibilities. I totally agree with that thought. You can’t eat bullets.

            “You can’t eat bullets.”

            Well, unlike Lay’s potatoe chips, you can eat only one. Sorry for the dark humor, but I couldn’t resist.

            As my friend Kevin Reeve of Onpoint Tactical likes to say: “Training trumps gear. But community trumps training and gear.” Community is most important, because you need community to provide real security, and you need community because you can’t possibly know how to do everything, or have everything you will need. Community provides the community security, the community fire protection, and the community medical assistance and mutual aid in any emergency of any kind. Many hands make light work. Got community?

    This guy looks way too soft and chubby to survive very long if things get rough. I’m betting that those who can lead a somewhat nomadic existence and stay under the radar until people die out will be the ones who will survive. Staying put in any one location may not be a good thing. Moving away from the violence, disease or toxic areas may be the key to survival. I’m 64 years old and take no meds and am still fit so I think my chances are pretty good.

      I was thinking the same thing. If this guy is an example of the people who will re-populate the earth after a catastrophic event, we might was well nuke the place right now.

      I’m fortunate that I live in a rural area on 14 acres, about 8 tillable, surrounded by small farms, abundant game, a stocked pond, fresh water. Neighbors talk to neignbors — most will help each other if the SHTF. I do agree with Kevin that guns alone won’t help much. Assume we survive the initial wave, I view guns and ammo as barter commodities as much as defense weapons.
