Keeping in mind that a survival situation will effect everyone’s survival and not just yours, it is important to minimize your struggles in order to maximize your survival chances.  The following are some important considerations.

  • Allow extra time to accomplish your goals during a disaster as it will usually take longer to get to your destination, complete your plan or project, etc.
  • Information is critical so use it to your advantage.  Make sure it is up to date and accurate.
  • Have sufficient modes of transportation and reserve fuel for yourself, your family and your supplies.
  • Utilize all available skills as needed and keep an accurate inventory of your gear, food and other resources.
  • Security, security, security.  Increase your security level as disasters will often bring out the worst in people.  Your security and safety is critical.

There are three types of folks.  Those who will do nothing to prepare for their survival and immediately surrender to circumstances, those who will do whatever it takes to survive even if their actions are immoral and unethical and those who will do what is necessary to survive while retaining their morals and ethics.  Try to be part of the 3rd type of folks. 

If things do get bad you need to be prepared to defend yourself not only for your own survival but for those other family members who may also be depending upon you for their survival.  It can be a dangerous world when disaster strikes so be prepared.

    There are so many things to consider!

    For instance, my family drinks raw milk. We’d like to keep this benefit. But, if the country collapses, will it have been a good idea to attain and keep several milk goats? Or will this just be a distraction, in the long run.

    Just some musings… 🙂

      Why raw milk instead of processed? Just curious 🙂

        It saved my boy’s life, that was the catalyst. When I get home I can give you the link to my blog post about it but it’s titled “If the Federal Government had their way…” If they did, he’d be dead.

        Basically, raw milk is living food (like breast milk, sorta). Cooked milk kills all the good stuff.

        We digest fresh milk and processed milk rots in our guts, but eventually gets broken down, mostly unused.

        I did about 300 hours of research on it, but I won’t bore you with the details, unless you ask for it. Lol!

        You can get a fair bit of info at It’s a good launching point for anyone wanting to find out some basics. 🙂

        How’s that for a short answer made long?!

    Here is that link I promised. It starts about how the feds are totally mental, but also tells our story a bit.

    Thanks for the well-wishes. I don’t know what I would have done if there were not still people willing to look the other way while I, um, bent laws. 😉
