Are You a Doomsday Prepper?

Do you prep for a doomsday ? Figured I'd start this thread as a sort of public service announcment for people to share prepping ideas on here, we are a strong community having jeeps and share a common bond , when all of the other vehicles cant get around ours should still be going . I think we should all be ready for anything if not just a long peroid without power . so post up some ideas on how you would survive ...WHEN THE S@#T HITS THE FAN!!

Not if the power goes out. Better hook that fridge to a generator!

Does anyone watch the show on NGC? My husband does, and I'm afraid he's found his post-Army calling once he retires from active duty in 6+ years ...

On one show they had a guy who is building $1M underground condos; I'm not sure I can afford to prep!

I am stocked up on Buffalo Trace (whiskey) since it will not require any electricity and 7.62 X 39 ammo for my ak. Also have lots of 12 ga and .22 ammo so if I get hungry I can take out a stray cat or neighbors dog if it decides to get on my property.

IF the world is ending in 2012, I would rather go with it, then try to survive the unkown expectations.

Not saying I wouldn't put up a fight, but I won't be buying a underground bunker.

I agree in the fact that I'm not buying a bunker. But I have thought through a few scenarios and came up with a plan to help me survive. Luckly, I do keep lots of ammo and most of my plan is to blast my way into the future.

Well my idea of prepping is a little different too. Being a Marine SGT I think a little differently on survival . I do have an assortment of tactical defense skills and the weapons to back it up . My idea is not to go out and buy a bug out spot and spen tons of money on ready supplies of food and water . I really don't see the world ending per say ! That's a bunch of dramatized religious BS . This is btw coming from a head straight southern baptist. I do however feel like the civil part of how we live our daily lives will (someday) change drastically ..and I will be taking my family and heading for the hill country and going back to basics . You can build shelter and make it just fine on the land if you have the proper skills . Hopefully to survive long enough to help with the restructure of the good ole USA ! But hey I do live in Texas and if the crap really hits the fan maybey we can all hold our ground and self sustain !

I watched a few episodes yesterday about those people having the high dollar underground bunkers built. Would be nice to have if you could afford it, the ones that were on the tv program are way out of reach for most of us. I'll just keep buying ammo when I have a little extra to spend and hope for the best.

i've seen somma the shows and vids on this, and what makes me sad thus far is i don't see enough people "prepping" their souls.

earthly "survival" has always been moot to me, as many people have said "you could get hit by a bus tomorrow".
my only concern in our earthly lives is human suffering, i'll do anything i can to alleviate someone else's as well as my own.

i am a Christian, so i believe the end times will happen, and that we totally don't know when - until we're in it. what i got was "make straight the path of the Lord" - that means cleanse your soul, it doesn't mean remove some fallen trees out of the road from the last storm

but i also can't help but notice some of what i see going on in the world and in America. the revolutions we've seen in Libya, etc., can infact happen here, and may. There may be some heinous things on our near horizon, here's some examples why i think that:

- after katrina they used a list of gun owners' addresses to go around taking guns from everyone on that list. taking guns during a disaster when looting and other crimes were rampant, taking guns from the law-abiding only, as the felons with guns weren't on their list because they're felons - they don't buy guns at a gun store.
- in the wake of that horrific action, the governor of KY signed into law that KY will NOT do this to its citizens, he signed 2 important gun legislations in the wake of katrina gungrabbing: castle doctrine, and no gungrabbing during some disaster.
- the vid posted on this forum of access to public-owned lands being taken away from the public. one sheriff who's against this said "i will not criminalize my own citizens". sadly thus far it looks like the evil behind this is winning / has won.
- farmers in my county were "raided" by feds for producing cows milk and selling it directly to customers. why?
- just saw a vid today that mentions 40,000 new laws came into place as of January 2012. some of the heinous/insidious laws mentioned said (in some states) it is now illegal to collect rainwater. why?


you have to ask the question - why would the federal govt (or evil corrupting it, because it's not everyone in it who's bad), want to disallow our citizens from being self-sufficient? why would they want to force everyone to only be able to get their means of subsistence -only from- them?

my first concern is for our souls, my 2nd concern is for earthly suffering.
just my take on it anyhoo.

Our government would fail in a large disaster in the states .thats what I think and I think it needs to actually cause it needs to be rebuilt from the ground up and get back to the roots of it.

And as far as getting your soul ready I really dont understand what you mean by that. I'm catholic I do not go to church and don't really care to. I have plenty of faith in most all religions but when s.h.t.f I'm not praying I will
Be trying to survive.

I have also started a small team of local friends and jeepers. We are a select group of men who can all benefit from each other for example our life experience.
ex marine , locksmith, science school teacher, law enforcement, home builder, electronic engineer, paramedic, professional hunter and so on y'all get the
Point

We all are trained with weapons and tactics along with medical skills.

I created our small team and we are called

B.A.T. Bugout, apocalypse, team

Shirts and badges coming soon.

We all live within 20 miles of watch other and have designated meeting spots depending on what may occur.

It's to our disadvantage that we live in south Florida. However we have access to commandeer planes a boats if we have to.

Any ways y'all get my point..

it's very simple, you're going to die one day period, you're going to be judged for what you did while alive on earth. what do you want that day to look like?

if you caused some neighbor family to die - so that you could give food to your family - do you somehow think that's good? lemme get back to this in a sec...

i had no idea something like katrina gungrab *could* or ever *would* happen, i was shocked to see that ever did.

what would you do if they came and told you that? your options are:
1.) fight them to the death right there, which is basically "suicide by cop" because they will outnumber you, out-arm you, etc.

2.) or, give in.

i'd like to hear the people who gave in during katrina's gungrab were now suing and attacking legally over that - but i haven't heard any such thing yet. it is possible to go after some through legal means after the "crime" was committed, and they should be. i haven't heard anyone is though.


okay back to first thing,

there is a commandment that says thou shalt not murder,
it's often mis-quoted as thall shalt not kill, which is severely incorrect,
there's all the world of difference between kill and murder.

killing in self-defense is okay.

killing someone trying to wrongfully take your only means of protection or survival, is okay. they have no right to take it, and it's obvious their reasons for taking it are insidious - see "Germany, 1939".

killing someone to feed yourself is wrong.


a lot of these choices to me are pretty simply to comprehend;
but the doing of many of them is not so easy, and i'm sympathetic to that. - it's not always easy to make a stand and fight to the death,
- it's not easy to sacrifice yourself to save others



...okay but, "badges"? what the hell do you need badges for? sorry that one sounds like crap to me, i'm a living creature, that's all the "badge" i need to have a right to water and food, doesn't mean i'll receive or acquire it but that's all the proof i need that i have a right to it.

The badges are for our vehicles I guess a better choice of words would be decals.

As far as religious talk on a message board I will not get into.

As far as doing my part everyday to help my neighbors and fellow Americans.

I've picked up a rifle for this country by joining the airforce at the age of 17.

And now work in law enforcement to serve and protect. I don't do these type of jobs for the cash cause it sucks nor the Retirment cause its not guaranteed and with every passing year it's looking like I won't have one. I do it cause I care about people and community. Everyday I go to work I know I might die to help save someone else's life.

So as far as being judged when my time comes I'm sure he well judge me just fine.

cool Bs13855 , i apologize if i sounded like *i* was judging, i didn't mean that at all, i merely want to caution people to think about the afterlife and their actions on earth, -- because i've already (from watching prepper info) seen , sadly, many who say they're Christian but then go on to say they'd "do whatever it takes" to feed their own family,
and i think that's something they should maybe ponder before taking such an action.

i've just heard too much rhetoric the past year about earthly surviving with little comment to spiritual and i guess that saddens me,
and to anyone who doesn't believe in a higher power - i have nothing at all i can say to them;
but to people who say they believe in a higher power - to them i try to give some food for thought about future "earthly survival" plans and methods, and how it may relate in the afterlife.
i'm no authority on anything, just wanting to point out some thoughts that i haven't yet been hearing on this subject.

And you are 100 percent correct. I've watched those shows as well and didn't think about that till you brought it up.

Anyways

Have a great morning
