What essentials to prep and where to get them from?
I live in nyc, i know, im gonna be royally fucked in the ass once shtf in a big ciry like this, but i would still like to prepare for the upcoming food riots and such. I'm young and still in school and i don't know where to start. I've been thinking of getting pounds of cheap oats from the internet somewhere but i don't really know. I know for sure i will get a tough water filter that i want to last for the years to come. What do you guys think? Any advice would be really appreciated.

Thank you sir for this sane post. I would love to get out, move north to canada. Maybe aquire property within the years but who knows what the future entails. Moving west would be hard, ny is my only option for the next year or so. Though i understand the risk of dying will get pretty high, tis all cool. I only hope i do not suffer long. I will look into these items but firearms might be a no since sons of bitches be tough on it.

Re: What essentials to prep and where to get them from?
I wasn't going to add anything to this thread, and then I remembered hurricane Sandy and New York.

You're young, so my mother's heart goes out to you. I'll give you the same advice I would give any young person.

Go to You Tube, watch all the Sandy videos. Watch the horror, the suffering, the shock. Mutliply this ten times over. This will be a glimpse of shtf.

Find the money from somewhere. Check out military surplus stores. Buy a canteen or two. Pick up a hatchet, have it sharpened. Invest in a good hunting knife, also pick up a Buck folding hunter knife. Waterproof matches, small flashlight, batteries. Forget the toilet paper. Buy a few packs of Wet Ones and toss them in your bug out bag.

What will you eat? I have no idea. Protein bars are expensive, but will sustain you for awhile. You'll need a source of Vitamin C. Buy a few bottles, chewable kind.

Any preps you do now will be to your advantage. Don't wait until the shit has really hit the fan.

Keep the cateens full of water. Drink it, and then replace it with fresh water.

Don't listen to these asses who tell you that you're fucked. LISTEN to your heart. Stand in your own might and have faith in yourself.

Good luck, honey.

If you have not prepped by now, you are too late.

Forget getting guns & ammo ----- there aint none or you'll pay 10 times as much.

Just by some canned foods, since you haven't been serious all along, you're about to receive you pennants

Re: What essentials to prep and where to get them from?
I'm out in the country.

Own well.

Traps.

Beans & Rice & Bullets.

Canned.

MREs.

Stuff that would be needed.

Can easily raise cuy. So can you BTW, even in NYC.

I won't bug out. I AM bugged out.

Still. Would rather be out of the U.S.

It's a cesspool.
People here are raised/conditioned to be stupid and aggressive with fellow humans on their own level while being extremely passive towards those who rule them (CorporaGov).
That's so they'll fight the wars... and if too old, support them and send their kids.

Working on getting out and never coming back.

Who would want to bother with a U.S. that is even worse than the one we presently exist within?
It's a schitthole.

Re: What essentials to prep and where to get them from?
In the city water is going to potentially be a bigger concern for you than if you lived in a more rural area. Then again it may not be a problem for you at all. So buy up some gallons of water.

Food is numero uno. If you stock nothing else keep water and food. With these items you could conceivably barter for whatever else you need. Keep dry beans, lots of canned food (lots of water in can food), and so on. Lately I've been spending my money on dairy products. I've got ten pounds of waxed cheese which I bought for $10 a pound online and canned cheese which costs about the same. I just added 6 boxes of velveeta which I can use up at the rate of 1 box a month before it expires. I've got some canned butter and powdered milk.

My food preps are divided into two groups. The first group forms a core of food that I don't actively rotate because it lasts for more than a few years. Dried beans, rice (I just pour it into 2 5 gallon buckets and mix diatomaceous earth with it), a few canned items (cheese, butter), and powdered milk. The second group is the food that is a little more perishable. These are things that I normally eat. I just buy it in bulk. I've got 30 pounds of flour (bread and all purpose), regular can food, oatmeal, regular butter (I've got 9 pounds), cooking oil, canned meat, etc. I tend to keep a lot of canned chicken, ham, and tuna.

I used to go all out prepping exotic emergency foods, but have come to the conclusion that just buying normal food, but stacking it as deep as I can without it going bad, is the way to go. It is a hedge against food inflation, is convenient because it greatly reduces those quick trips to the store to grab something for cooking, and frankly is a nice way to make money appear when needed. What I mean is there have been times when our finances got in trouble and by skipping grocery shopping and living off my preps I can make hundreds of dollars "appear" in my monthly budget. My wife used to really get mad about my food storing addiction until she realized that it is very practical in non-doom situations.

I don't prep for doom. I prep for real life which may or may not include doom.
