Times have been rough. The old world you know is long gone, replaced with a blunt cruelty you never imagined possible. People are dispersed, cities are collapsing, and infrastructure is completely lacking.
The civilization we know has ended, and the government and the rule of law are gone. In this new world, all forms of currency, money, credit, and all precious metals lost their worth. You are alone, and you have no resources to purchase food, water, fuel, or any gear you might need to survive. What do you do?
At last, we have found the elixir of health and longevity! Because of its antioxidant content, our ancestors used wine as medicine. This tasty alcoholic beverage was proven to have considerable preventative qualities regarding cardiovascular diseases, reduced harmful LDL cholesterol in the blood, and prevention of ischemic cardiac disease. As a precaution, it suffices to drink one glass a day.
It sure is easy to swipe a card and have anything you need; so easy, in fact, you can make simple transactions with your card on someone’s personal cell phone. Cash, credit, the name makes no difference, it is as simple as grandma’s apple pie. We’ve come a long way since the bartering time and people are forgetting about those challenging days.
Regardless how well-prepared you are and how you assume a SHTF scenario will unfold, food will still become a problem as things develop. If the crisis is not a short-term one, you will have to learn how to obtain food one way or another. Both Mother Nature and the remaining traces of civilization will have something to offer if you know where to look for.
Meals Ready to eat, or simply MREs, are very popular among preppers and survivalists. Although MREs are primarily intended for use in the field by the military, they are now being stockpiled by average Americans. Before you fill your pantry with Meals Ready to Eat, there are a few things you should know about these food rations.
Hardcore survivalists and preppers cherish the lone-wolf scenario when the world of the end comes. However, seeking a friend for those harsh times might do you some good. Besides the company, other people will give a helping hand. The end of the world may not seem so bad if you aren’t alone.
Bugging in can be defined as staying in your house and holding down the fort during an emergency situation. If you have everything you need in your home to survive there is no need to leave and head for a distant location. You will have to bug out only if there are substantial reasons to do so and if your bug-in plan failed.
Bartering should not be a skill forgotten in ancient past or used when you try to bring down the price of cheap, vacation souvenirs. The barter items you should have in your pantry will save not only your life but also the lives of others.
