Crank/Solar Radio and flashlight
Back to Basic/Prep/DIY Books
Mosquito nets
Fencing material
Solar Shower
Condoms

Books, I would add Navy Blue Jacket Manual, Guide Book for Marines, US Army guide, Air Force guide, and Coast Guard. The Boy Scout handbooks I have are copyright 1959, 1948, 1940, each one has different thing in them. The most is 1940 and 1959 little less. Not a lot unless you want to build a bow and arrows its in the 1940 but not the 1959. First aid is in all of them. All the FM manual they are traing manual for the services. Manals that are use for the traing of Hospital Corpsman. Have not see one of them for a long time.
I would add Horses and cattle, if there is no or little fuel and you can find horse drawn equipment can farm. Plant more than just what you have in the garden, and plough your garden. Rabbits is not on the list.
The means to make alcohol which can be use as fuel or...

Setting here watching, Aftermath: world without oil. Something to think about that is for sure. But I don't think it would be as peacefull as they are showing.

A pretty good list. First aid kits enhanced, should also be added. I have a hand crank blender that is really nice in the kitchen, not a necessity, but handy iof anyone needs a liquid or semi-liquid diet or making baby food. They are sold at outdoor stores. I also have a hot pot on the wood stove for running hot water, LOL. It has a spigot on the side to pour water.

About the milk, condensed milk is the sweetened milk, evaporated milk is the whole milk needing only water added to use as regular milk.

Pouches of tobacco and rolling papers work well for a trade item, also. Place in a ziplock or seal in a vaccum pouch to keep as fresh as possible.

If you have a generator, you need to be sure and have a good supply of oil and fuel stored, too, plus any filters.

Danny62...why the Blue Jacket Manual? I was issued one in boot camp but tossed it when readying for a new duty station between PO3 and PO2. I can't remember anything useful in it besides some Navy history and uniform wear...and most of it was repeated in the BMR and such. However, I still have my "blue jacket." I think that it is the only uniform item that I still have and 11 years latter I still think it looks spiffy.

As for the hospital corpsman training manuals, you can get them online at the virtual naval hospital: vnh.org They have the basic manuals, the dental manual, and the field medical service school manuals there...along with a lot of other manuals like preventive med.

For the signal flags, now the coast guard manaul may havie it to. could use the flags to "talk" to people without everyone reading your mail or raido.
Any of them for the ranks. Know most would not beleive and Sargent Major that was waring a sargent chevrons and a Major leaf. But some might.
Toss my blue jacket manual also and then my Guide book for Marines. Marine had the M1, carbine, M14, and the M16. Had the brake down for the crew servied weapons, and how to set up a mortor tube.

It's great to know all you vets are here. For all the vets here, I'd like to give you all a virtual hand shake for your services.

My dad served, as well as many of my relatives. My family has fought in every war that country has been in since it's beginning, with the exception of what's going on presently. I joined the Marines at 17 with my parents signature. Unfortunately, My father passed away before I shipped out and got out on a hardship to take care of my mom. So all you guys and Gals, I have a special spot in my heart for all of you. I salute you all!

I don't know how smart I am sometimes. Spent 3 years in the Sea Bees (Jan66 to Jan69) got out and then into the Marine Corps for 6,( Dec 73 to Nov 79) but trying. To do better, one of these days will have the thing I want stored.

Most people will not be smart enough to realize the importance those items. I see fresh milk, bread, frozen pizza, fresh hamburger, as disappearing first.

I think you are right. :) Add to that Doritos and Coke. Well, they are welcome to it. Some of them will eventually figure it out, but it will be too late. I guess that is why it is important to get the items on this list now. I wish more people were "aware" now.

I wish more were aware, also. I am making up buckets that I will try to hand out to folks in need, when it becomes a problem. I am trying to put some basic items in it, that will sustain them for about a month. Beans, rice, salt, a kettle, matches, toilet paper, since most haven't a clue, and a printed handout sheet on how to use the stuff and maybe get by. Oh yes, also a towel.

Rose, won't that be dangerous by making you a target?

IE:
Hey Todd! Look that gal over there is giving away free food. She must be loaded with the stuff. We'll have to see what else she has and come back when everyone is gone. :gunshooting:


All that I am saying is, please be extremely careful. :gunsmile: And keep saying, this is all I have left... I split it in half.
