    I gave up trying to talk to people about the need to prepare years ago. I found that they either get it or they don't. It was not worth the effort to try to get them to understand.

    However... if you do want your video games to be there for you, you will need enough solar panels, battery bank and inverter to run your system (PC or Bigscreen/console system)... You will also need enough Doritos, Twinkies and Jolt Cola to get you through the bonus level!!!

    And while your light pistol from duck hunt may look intimidating, you may wanna get the real deal for those real life gaming experiences. Also consider extra ammo and for the record, there ain't no extra ammo just laying around for you to pick up like in those zombie shoot 'em ups! Finally on guns & ammo, 10,000 rounds of 20mm API linked going into your handheld Vulcan gatling gun is impossible in real life... so get one!

    If multiplayer is what you are going for, then make sure your buddies and opponents have the same setup!!!

    Also since the world may end, but you got the game shark codes for unlimited lives, you may wanna consider how to setup your own private wireless WAN/LAN network... Don't let TEOTWAWKI ruin your plans to posses the shimering lazer sword of ohmygosh!

    ;)

    The point is: You do what you can, when you can do it....not when you feel like doing it. I can guarantee you few things outside this: NO PLAN SURVIVES CONTACT WITH THE ENEMY. You need to be getting ready for ALL you can possibly imagine....with redundancy at every level. Remember: 2 is 1, 1 is none....and just get motivated, folks. If you think the next earthquake, political upheaval, or terrorist attack will have adequate warning so you can get your gear in order, you are sadly mistaken.....

    Do your best....it doesn't get any better than that for any of us....and nobody's "best" is any better than anyone else's...it's still their best.

    I wasn't trying to make anyone feel inadequate, other than those who are nonchalantly procrastinating, 'cause they think their video games will always be there for them......*sigh*........

    I consider myself a "lifestyle prepper" and I try and incorporate everything I can into my current lifestyle so WTSHTF I will hardly notice ;)

    While this level of preps may be Zombie Axe's comfort level and is right for him, this level of preps may not be enough, or TOO much for YOU!

    You have to ask yourself, what are you preparing for and what is the comfort level you wish to achieve...

    3 days, a week, a month, 90 days, 6months, a year, 2 years etc... you decide :)

    I personally don't think 90 days worth of preps is too much and IMHO should be the minimum one should think about storing (to begin with)... Of course you gotta start somewhere!

    For me, I don't think I will EVER reach my comfort level... but I try :D

    If you're new to the S&P scene, get your a** in gear and put paid some of your new-found intel....stop wasting your time and $$$ with the latest porn subscriptions and XBox rentals, and start gearing up for your future.

    If you're a lurker, a visitor, whatever....same goes for you...get on-board with the program...this ain't some tin-foil community dedicated to the preservation of the Star-Trek series....this sh*t is for real, and you don't want to find out the truth when it's a grumbling in your gut or a knife in your leg....

    And as for you half-a**ers....shame....you know better, and you should be doing everything you can...if you're in it to feed your Rambo fetish, go home and starve while you stare at your Stallone posters...

    I don't wanna see any of "my people", from any of "my communities" get pidgeon-holed by their own complacency....it would be a shame to have such a resource at your disposal, only to see it pissed away to flippant web-surfing and online fantasy warriors...

    I just got done schooling a supposed "prepper" in another forum about the realities of failure to learn S&P....only to realize that the idiot was only there to "socialize" and it made me friggin' insane.....

    Anyways.....I feel better now.....thanks for tuning in to my latest rant...

    Here's to the quitters......they just leave more for me to pilfer in the end....
    If you are a Newbie, a lurker or a half-a**er, please don't listen to Ol' Meanie Big_Saw......I hope you get something from this page even if you are not taking it seriously. At least when the SHTF you will know exactly where you screwed up. You will then know all the things that you should have practiced and discussed with your loved ones. You will know all of the little things that you could have done for a few dollars a week, and at that point you will at least have a warm feeling deep inside you because you know that some of your internet buddies are warm, safe and full even if you are not.

    You can't teach those that are unteachable. Relax, wind it too tight and it'll break. Putting your foot in the Horse's a** won't make him drink.

    I would really like to challange others from the West Texas area to make themselves known. There are only two of us on this board from this area, and I know there are more out here. Show yourselves!!
