HOW TO PREPARE your home for a quarantine - Prepper Edition.
This is Bullshit

[link to www.shtfplan.com (secure)]

It has some decent ideas like getting a treatment center set up and ready in case someone becomes sick.

Which would be good if this didn't have a 24 day asymptomatic ramp up, and wasn't airborne, but it is. If someone in your house gets sick, you probably already are.

The only shot any of us have to not get it, is to get everyone to your bug out location, where you are going to STAY until it blows over. Think of Shawn of the Dead, but instead of the Pub, you'll be at home.

All this shit about going out to get supplies, dressing up like a WHO flunkie to get a can of spam, is complete idiocy. I'm not going out unless I'm driven out.

So back to the topic of this thread.

How to prepare your home for a quarantine - Armed Prepper Edition.

Note* This is what I did. You'll need to adapt to where you live.

Another note, my 3 immediate neighbors are like-minded. I realize this is a HUGE advantage. I also live about 3 miles from the nearest decent sized town, my house is at the end of a long driveway with a few other houses, again, a great advantage. I don't believe any of this is by accident. I've experienced some really strange things over the last 6 months, things that have come together to make this situation bearable, I hope.

What I have done to pandemicize my residence

invested in a gravity water filter and we also have a pool. If you do not, or cannot get a filter, you can make bleach to disinfect water from pool shock:
Make Bleach from shock - 15 cups water (or 1 gallon minus 1 cup). 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons 68% Pool Shock. Mix until dissolved. Wait 2-3 hours for the inert ingredients to settle out and use.

Have accumulated about 6 months worth of food

after that, we have chickens, and rabbits

Planted fruit trees, berry bushes, and stored a crapload of veggie seeds.

Firearms - Covered - I'll leave it at that - plenty of ammo for each caliber.

Installed solar motion sensor lights all around the house
[link to www.amazon.com (secure)]

Installed a driveway monitor
[link to www.amazon.com (secure)]

Scouted areas of the property that offer cover and concealment

Got some huge speakers and an amp that hooks to my phone's bluetooth. Music makes everything better, even a quarantine.

I have CB, Shortwave and HAM communication options.

Batteries of every type and a big solar panel and inverter just to charge them. I recommend Eneloop. They come charged, they recharge thousands of times.
[link to www.amazon.com (secure)]

Picked this up, in case we have any medical issues. My library has all kinds of stuff in it, but this was the latest purchase
[link to www.amazon.com (secure)]


got everything we normally use for 3 months around the house, laundry soap, hygiene items, meds. The idea here is DO NOT Go where there are people! If this shit is as contagious as they say, this will be the only way to keep from getting it.

You'll thank yourself later:
[link to www.amazon.com (secure)]

Oh, and don't forget coffee. You'll also thank yourself later

Good luck everyone. I'd love to hear about your preps. What are you doing to prepare?

Any tips for me? I'll gladly take any advice. I've been doing this for 20 years or so, but there is always someone who knows more.


Everyone, please post your own tips. This could be extremely important info.

Sounds dumb but it’s not: sprinkle holy water around your property. Ask Jesus to send his warrior angels to defend you and your family. The Blessed Mother is pretty powerful too in her intercession for us before God. For example: Do you remember hearing about one of our F-16 fighter jet pilots back in the early ‘90’a who ejected before crashing and got stranded on a wide-open Bosnian hill in plain daylight and Serb soldiers walked right up to him within feet snd didn’t see him. The soldier was clutching a rosary expecting to be shot st any second snd he was no longer laughing about his mom giving that rosary to him for protection. God can do anything.

Consider having boards for 1st floor windows. A bar across each entrance door would help. Drive 4" screws along edges of garage door into frame. Won't budge unless you take the screws out. But at this point it's about security.

Fire extinguishers and/or hose to sink ready. Can't have a fire during this.

Just some thoughts, ideas to toss around.


I personally hope and pray it burns out and goes away. But I'm afraid it's not going to.

Go to AllDayChemist and order meds from overseas. Ignore the prescription line, put the name of any doctor, you will get them. Good stuff, a lot of companies in India like Glaxo.

Get amoxy, doxy, cipro, zithromax. You never know. Flagyl for giardia. Vermox for pinworms.

Go to amazon, order wild lettuce capsules for pain. Stock up on over the counter meds.

True story and I remember that!!! That's also a very good reminder to have not only holy water along with a rosary but a bible and blessed candles as well.

Also needed are lots of easy, canned meals ready to eat in case the grid goes down for lack of workers due to illness, or intentional gov. shutdown. You don't want to "advertise" with cooking smells.

Picked up extra everyday home items, hand soap, dish soap, garbage bags, tp, laundry soap ect. Will use it all anyway over time.

90 days of 25 year food storage, have a water filter I've been using on camp trips for years and a new one in the box ready to go. Couple 25lb bags of dry dog food, and more essentials already in place for years.

Lots of batteries for the xbox controller for movies and music as well. Doggie cameras out front and back monitoring the situation at the entries. And personal protection is covered too.

If services are interrupted, we will read books, play games, and still be fine sitting by the fireplace.

Stay as ready as possible peeps. Anything can, and will happen in our lifetime

Re: HOW TO PREPARE your home for a quarantine - Prepper Edition.
I have a good fence with fence charger wire on top.

If things got really hairy, some things that rural folk can do:

1. Run a very thin copper wire on insulators around your perimeter. Use a transformer from an old microwave or some other electronics. Hook up to inverter to deliver about 1000+ volts plus some significant amps.

Intruders will announce their presence.

2. It is perfectly legal to run a steel pipe around the perimeter of your yard for irrigation. In the event of zombie attack, you can hook up a gas powered pump to spray something noxious or even flammable.
