It would be great to have them just in case there are issues. Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them. Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them. Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some. Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it. Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking. Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens. Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them [/quote] Precisely WHAT KIND of SHTF scenario do you envision that will allow the preppers to just merrily roll along . . . such as what you describe in your almost Disney-like description above? [/quote] Read much further and then tell me if you think it's Disney-like [/quote] There are countless possible SHTF scenarios . . . but I asked you to be specific in what type you believe will allow the preppers to continue on. It's just that there've been numerous threads here wherein preppers post about how much they've got stockpiled and they are oh-so-confident, almost arrogantly so, in what they have stored and that they're in rural areas or have bug-out cabins in the woods to run to or whatever, and I wonder each time what makes them believe they will be protected from any devastating sort of SHTF scenario. Even if someone has months of supplies and are in a small town or in the country, if the rest of the world is devastated, what will be left for the preppers? It's all circular, you know, no man is an island . . . [/quote] If you read my postings, it's precisely about rebuilding communities post-collapse. I agree, no man is an island. For example, should a collapse occur, then you're right many people will starve. Recently I wrote that logically if there's no supply chains, up to 90% could be dead by six months. I'm serious as a heart attack about that, especially with Winter here. I live in a rural area and can do all of the things I mentioned in my postings. Most people don't have skills only some supplies. The only way a community can make it it by pooling resources later, however getting people to trust again is critical. Recently I discussed a way to eat the food in freezers and refrigerators in case the power went off. A good organizer would help people to understand that eating that food in block parties would be wisdom, because otherwise it would spoil and be utterly wasted. Because food is stored as excess in fat and water, then those people could live a week or more on those calories. In my community there are people who raise animals and feed and have extensive gardens and farms. We're not urban whatsoever. If a lot of people die, then it'll be the responsibility of the survivors to make things come together and begin civilization again. Think about it this way, a lot of survivalists are worried about the Horde of people who don't have supplies. Truthfully most of them will die, even the gangs, because to gather up resources and fight is very calorie dependent. Unless people have skills and seed and supplies, then they won't make it. Meanwhile those who manage for even six month to nine months may be alone. Many will be isolated and without medical personel. Only by pooling resources and abilities will the survivors make it. Anything is possible, but more are plausible. A plague for example is very possible, but some will either have immunity or not catch it. Even with the great influenza epidemic, the majority lived. Think about the great tuberculosis epidemic too. The issue is that people today don't raise food like those folks did. It's a major concern. I don't believe that a full scale nuclear attack will happen. I think in the end wiser leadership will prevail. I do think military coups are possible, EMP events, large scale natural disasters, another Great Depression, etc are all possible. If one preps, then one has a cushion. I'm not concerned with survival at all. My goal is educate people and help my family. If I die, so be it. But if I can help them get organized and help some to live, then it's better than not helping at all. OK specifics, I think that many SHTF scenarios are survivable by a subset of the population. Most are. It depends upon the depth of a crisis. Say we had massive power failure and the nuclear plants all went into a shutdown like Fukushima. Yes, the radioactive isotopes would devastate the land with high cesium, and all manner of isotopes. Still despite what happened at Chernobyl, species adapted and were able to live. Sure humans may not, and can't live in the worst zones. Many will have birth defects and die. Many thyroid cancers will happen, leukemias, bone cancer, pancreatic cancer, etc. Death from all of the radioactive insults as well all malnutrition and lowered immune systems. Istopes will concentrate in the food chain in the land and water. Still life will go on in some fashion. Read more of my posts. They're about ways to organize after a major event or major events and bringing the community together to dig wells, purify water, deal with sanitation, grow crops, hunt, fish, make rope, create energy from existing devices, make candles, harvest soap from ferns, use vet antibiotics to save lives, harvest herbs, preserve food, etc. It's not about selfishness and doom, it's about affirmation, life, and Hope.
