What are you prepping for?

Post by marshall.ryan » Sat Oct 06, 2018 10:46 pm

Good evening readers,
the answer to this question is complicated, I will try and answer via a collection of thoughts:
What humanity is doing is not sustainable: something has to give and very soon,
We seem to be at the mercy of energy generation corporations (i.e. the frackers, the miners, Adani, Santos etc) who seem to not care about the worlds next major resource - fresh water!
Australia is not immune to terrorism unleashed upon the civilian populace. It is my belief that we will see an increase in such incidences- be it small scale chemical, nuclear (small scale dirty bombs), biological.
I am not religious, but I liken prepping to the modern day Noahs ark... there are many who are complacent and don't believe that a cataclysmic event can happen here in Australia.... I believe it is only a matter of time. Those that are prepared are those that will survive.
I believe that despite our fear of large corporations or adverse intelligence organisations, nobody is really in control! A large scale crisis will reveal just that.
...I hope my dystopian visions do not come to pass, but I have had them since I was a young child and have not lost them now that I am in my middle age.
I have a young family and I feel it is my duty to prepare for the worst should it happen.
I believe that much of the mental health issues today are a reflection of a society that is dysfunctional and sick.
These are my thoughts, however delusional they are.
M

Hi!.....My name is Pete,I Live on a small 1 Acre Property amid Farmland in NE Victoria.....Upper Kiewa Valley. I have a Lady Partner, and 2 Teenage Sons in My care. I am prepping for TEOTWAWKI/"Great Tribulation/Harsh END of ERA Times......and that it has already begun.....SHF Times are here for some already, but the Major events are about to unfold.
I chose to Live here near the Mountains because of the HUGE Possibility of Serious events such as.....Food Shortages, Tsunamis like never seen before (to Our knowledge anyways), Civil Unrest/Anarchy, Financial Breakdown, Power outage-long Term, 'Nuclear Winter'....be it from Mass Volcanic Eruptions, or even Total War,EMPs, The Global Elite bringing in MORE Draconian inhibitions to Our True Freedom....I could go on but....They are the main ones that come to mind.
I am, unfortunately, still nowhere NEAR as Prepared as I had hoped to be......mainly due to lack of Finances.

IF there is Someone out there who is interested in mutual Survival....PLEASE contact Me to discuss the matter....I NEED more able-bodied, and MINDED Good Souls to Help Us to ALL survive this..(Physically,.....and Mentally)
Cheers to You All....and Good Fortune!

Pretty simple for me. Financial collapse leading to recession, and environmental concerns. I am comfortable with my position on most other scenarios, I feel that being prepped for financial and environmental will cover MOST scenarios in as far as I have control to achieve. I'm pretty confident that should war break out on Australian shores, or a nuke be dropped etc. there's not a great deal I can do about that at that point of time.
I want to be prepared for the probable before I worry about the possible, and then if I have the energy I'll move to conceivable. I think if we get wrapped up in the axles of every single eventuality there's the potential to get bogged down. Baby steps for me.
So for me it goes recession, environmental collapse, civil/terror related incidents, war on our shores, lizard people from mars. In that order.
I agree that what we're doing isn't sustainable. I hope that the current trend towards low waste and self-sustainability grows and that we have less reliance on the big boys of the planet. Whether or not a lot of folks do it remains to be seen, but that's what we're aiming towards :)

For me, there is one common factor, people. Civil unrest is probably the biggest danger to all, regardless of what brings it on.
Environmental disaster would have to be on a global scale to be of concern, local issues are temporary at best, we would need to see an event like EMP from sun activity or an asteroid strike to see true global environment change, maybe even volcanic activity could bring on environmental change. I think a global financial collapse is possible, we have seen glitches before so a world depression is possible again. Pandemic to me is likely. The increase in resistant bacteria and viruses and the re emergence of many diseases that were supposedly eradicated is a concern. The rapid mutations of these diseases is concerning. Bio terrorism comes to mind, nukes not so much and dirty nukes are going to be local not global.
Food shortages, sure, already seeing this in Australia.
I prepare for civil unrest firstly, because if I have food and water and others don't, you can bet they will come for it. Secondly is simply survival and whatever that means.

Agree totally, civil unrest and wrol, however that is brought on, grid down, pandemic, war, zombies lol
Would stay in place for as long as I can but if I had to bug out firstly by vehicle I would, then on foot I could
Just have to take the right equipment with you, ways to make fire, make shelter, procure water and food, gotta be ready

I don't prep for any single thing I just prep, I can handle most any problem that may come along.
I can store water, distill it filter it etc, I store food, I can grow food and hunt/trap it.
I have stationery and mobile shelter and I can construct shelter
I can protect myself etc
etc

Civilization is falling to pieces in just about every respect like rome did
Not sure what the trigger will be but it will be all over before most see it coming

Socialism is trying its darnest to destroy economies at present so it maybe the less you have the less a socialist government can take away from you.
Socialism just loves land tax. Own land = Rich = steal via taxation

Another trick is easy loans at low interest = inflation = high land prices, constrict loans raise interest= deflation = loan defaults = repossession at a profit then very high rents more profits and all pay one way or another even those with no debt.

Looks like it is a race to the end to deliver the king hit.
