Before you go out and get ANYTHING, you need to consider what disasters are possible and which ones are the biggest threat to you specifically. Remember, the bigger the disaster, more-than-likely, the smaller the chance of it happening.
We’ll discuss each scenario a little further just to get your gears turning.
The problem with earthquakes and volcanos is that you don’t get much notice. As soon as wild fires grow, people tend to get more notice. If you have notice on any of these items, bugging out may be best.
This has the ability to get bad quickly. This is realistic because just a small change in a viral illness could cause a pandemic.
The following items contribute to the possibility of pandemics:
It is good to keep in mind that you want to stay away from pandemics. But if you cannot get away, some things are good to consider.
When sick, you usually loose a weeks salary. If something worse, you lose more productivity.
The issue with Economic Collapse or Food Shortage is that they compound problems
In a Food Shortage, you would think you just need food.
In an Economic Collapse, you would think that you just need a good money supply and a lot of commodities.
If you know before the plume gets to you, bug out immediately. This isn’t likely, but it does happen historically.
Don’t live in or downwind of these locations.
Problem with all of the stuff on this level of disaster is that many people jump into it too far.
Prepper gear is useless if you don’t have food, water, shelter, energy, security, and sanitation.
I am not going to dive into this because we can follow a lot of the same things as in Nuclear Disasters
Just remember, this type of warfare is directed toward high population areas. Stay out of those areas and their typical downwind locations.
This is possible and would have massive consequences.
Mathematically, this can happen and if it does, lots of stuff could happen.:
Some prepping for this should occur, but probably not much more than everything that I have already discussed. There isn’t much more that can be done.
This is a huge impact but not likely to happen. I have discussed this before on a previous podcast episode.
There isn’t much I can do personally to prepare for a celestial impact. The heat trace alone from it will be too much.
Sudden pole reversal is a mathematical possibility, and will happen eventually. It is too big to worry about.
Sucked into a black hole? No problem, just buy my Million dollar hardened shelter, because you are screwed either way. Don’t pay this any attention.
Would I like to have a mile deep bunker?
Sure, for the neat factor alone, but I don’t want it over food, basic safety expenses, and shelter that I get from prepping on the smaller items.
Apply common sense where applicable!!!
