What Do I Need?
You need a Plan (or two), a BOB
and the Right Attitude. A motor home full of food and
gear won't save you, if you don't plan well or can't think
clearly. There are simply too many people who believe that the
only preparations they have to make are to stock up on weapons
and ammunition and to know how to use them to take what they
want. Like your motor home full of goodies.
If you are still alive after that first 'unofficial'
roadblock, you've got nothing but yourself and the
clothes you wear, since you generously 'donated' your RV and
gear to those thugs with guns. Now you're walking... where to?
I hear Yosemite is nice this time of year. Or Lake Tahoe, sure,
Tahoe will be perfect! Nobody would think to go there. Except a
few million Californians who are already there. Don't
expect a welcoming committee.
I met a man who walked across the United States; he wore out
over 50 pairs of shoes. He's sort of famous. You probably won't
be, even if you're shoes are phenomenal. Where am I going with
this? Read on...
So, Okay, you lost your RV and your gear. Got a Plan
B? No? Oops... Not good planning! You're hungry and
thirsty and a alone in the middle of nowhere, watching your RV
(Plan A) disappear over the horizon. Now is not the time to
make a plan B, it's time to manifest it. The
point here is to have a practical Plan A and prepare for it,
then create Plan B, in case Plan A fails or cannot be used. A
Plan C and Plan D would also be wise.
This web site cannot make plans for you.
You have to do some study and research and make your plans.
Study this web site - there is a lot of information here, and
guidance. See my other web site about making a Survival Retreat
Use the books listed under Resources. The RV full of stuff may
actually be part of a usable plan, if carried out
early, not when there are already roadblocks, gangs of
looters and carjackings. That's not the time to be driving
around in a box full of goodies, or driving at all.
Might as well just paint a big sign on the side: LOOT ME. See
the page on burrying extra
gear for ideas for your plans.
My personal preference is to prepare a survival
retreat, a place I build and stock for the purpose of
bugging out. More details under Survival Retreat and at my other
web site www.SurvivalRetreatPlans.com.
The thinking behind a Survival Retreat goes like
Manufacturing a disaster. It is looking
more and more likely that an 'event' is coming: planned
economic collapse, manufactured depression, war in Iran/Libya,
fascism here in the US, etc., where the filthy rich (corporate
thugs, politicians, etc.) create situations which help them
consolidate their wealth and power, and the rest of us become
refugees. In other words, history repeating itself and a
snapshot of what's been going on since this country was founded
and in the world for millenia. Nero has part of Rome burned and
blames Christians. Hitler burns down his own administration
building (Reichstag) and blames the communists. The creeps in
power in the US bring down the World Trade Center towers and
blame Arab terrorists. False flag events like these are the
instruments of tyrants who want even more power, so they create
terror by murdering their own citizens, blame some 'enemy' and
then demand more power to deal with them and 'protect' us from
more attacks. New laws are quickly passed to give them this
power and curtail the rights of others.
In this kind of planned disaster, it takes time for the
perpetrators to get everything ready, pass laws that cripple
anyone who opposes them (Patriot Act, NDAA) and generally make
their job (of accumulation for them and mass suffering for us)
easier for them to pull off. It may not even be 'an event' at
all, just more of the erosion of our civil liberties, more laws
that prevent us from taking action and more bullshit, bailouts
and the bombing and ripoff of oil countries.
Prepare now while you can. In this lead
time, food and gear, guns and ammunition can be bought at
reasonable prices, and a place can be made ready where it will
probably be safer to survive the coming hard times. The idea
here is that cities may not be safe, nor may basic necessities
or services be available, especially if the crisis is serious
and relief is delayed. That leads to panic and desperation,
looting and worse. Some people believe that only in cities will
such things be available, like law (martial law?) and order,
food, water, medical services, etc. Um, no thanks, I'll go
someplace where I know what's IN my food and water. Line up and
get your vaccination, yeah, right. Trust some of the same
people who created the mess?
Politicians will save us? Since past and
current political representatives have eroded my belief that
they care about us, I'm preparing to manage without their
'help'. I think they have frustrated so many once-loyal
citizens that it is hard to predict whether they will be able
to contain the anger of the masses. I mean, look at just a few
of the recent atrocities:
G. W. Bush steals the presidency
9-11 now appears to be an event carried out by our own
people, according to a large group of expert architects, civil
engineers, chemists and metalurgists, as well as demolition
experts. That's right, it was a pre-planned and deliberate
murder of innocent citizens by people in this country, blamed
on terrorists, so that people would agree to the Patriot Act
and invading Iraq.
Bush & Co. fabricate reasons to invade Iraq where
thousands die so the major US financial interests can get
richer. WMD never found, nor nuclear nor biological weapons,
nor the 'terrorists behind 9-11'. Nice scam.
Patriot Act which trashes many of our civil liberties -
funny how they had all of that stuff ready to shove through
Congress, and down our throats.
700 billion-dollar bail-out (theft) of US money to big
companies which then gave millions in bonuses to
their CEOs and bought corporate jets. Folks, we got
screwed big time.
NDAA - Martial Law anyone? Step right up.
Now we are supposed to believe that Iran is our enemy so the
US can invade and steal their oil (like Iraq). And Libya is on
the block. Who's next?
In the US, politicians and corporations have found ways to
make corruption legal.
"When injustice becomes law, rebellion becomes
duty." -Thomas Jefferson
Some people still believe that. Unfortunately, so many
millions are incapacitated by the ever-increasing number and
quantity of synthetic chemicals that are being stuffed into
them daily: flouridated water (Are you stupid enough yet? Then
drink some more water.), preservatives, saccarine, food
coloring, flavoring, conditioners, etc., chemicals in building
materials, like formaldehyde, in just about every new house for
the last few decades, toxic carpeting, paints, rubber, plastic,
and the list goes on and on. Still have a few brain cells? Not
for long. Here, have some TV, so you know what to think. Is
rebellion even possible now, with so many people unable to
think clearly? There is widespread evidence that chemicals are
being sprayed from planes.
So the logic behind preparing a survival retreat is
now clear. We're heading into a manufactured disaster,
created so that the rich can consolidate their wealth and power
(as usual) and to keep the rest of us subservient (slaves). In
other words, life as usual.
You can still buy and stock up on food and other
gear while prices remain relatively low. Food prices
are going up and will probably climb higher, as a growing world
population competes for a food supply that isn't growing as
fast. Gas prices are going up again, and may not go down. Have
a plan for when gas is $10 a gallon or more or not available at
What we all need to do is to prepare for an
even larger dose of bullshit from those who are expert at
creating and spreading it - politicians and corporations
- and to have a workable plan of escape (Bug Out), in case
the situation they create becomes (more) unsafe. If you decide
to Bug In instead (hunker down and ride out the storm), see the
