The fall of civilization is a total unknown factor. Outside of survival skills you cant guess how society could fail, because it could happen in an infinite number of ways. You cant ready your self for all of them.

Short of building a massive bunker and doing aurc oval training there is nothing you can do. Stop worrying and live your life.

Discuss please.

Just wondering if any of you guys garden or plan on taking up the trade in order to better prepare yourselves. I've never gardened before but I'm planning on starting one very soon, as soon as the piles of old ice and snow melts and the temperature starts resembling spring. I was planning on a companion garden, where you plant certain combinations of plants, flowers, shrubs, grasses, or other veggies next to your garden in order to attract natural predators that eat garden pests, and certain combinations promote healthier growth. If all goes well, I want to expand my garden into a landscaped permaculture garden.

I think gardening and growing your own food is extremely important, and a skill worth knowing. I feel we as people are losing our connection with the land we live on and the food we eat.

> Good luck finding a legitimate source of non-GMO corn
No it's not. The type of corn you want to grow is sweet corn. GMO sweet corn is rare. If you're planting a field, It's more difficult to find corn that you can allow to go to seed, and re-plant. That's a pre-GMO trick, and is beneficial because heterozygous corn (pairs a recessive gene with a dominant gene) grows better than homozygous. If you're planting a small plot, then it's easy to find whatever corn you want.

A three sisters garden is pretty awesome. It's corn, beans and squash. They are grown close together. The corn acts like support, the beans replenish soil and the squash blocks out weeds' light.

i agree, jumping off the deep end and going all-in on the little details all at once is gonna piss you off and burn you out real fast.

if you still want to get hot and heavy into it as a hobby for now, or for growing food or spices, your best bet would be to do weed mulching, compost piles, and possibly manure fertilization.... also, observing and mimicking nature is going to go a very long way towards helping you.

Hey /FO/,

I don't frequent this board so forgive me if this post isn't in the right spot or doesn't follow conventions, but I thought this would be the place to go to get some answers.

I'm writing an article for an independent news/music website titled Prepare for Doom. The topic is disaster preparedness and people's fear of extinction events. Every time there's a disease scare (SARS, H1N1, Ebola) there's a spike in the purchase of hazmat suits, respirators and other survival gear.

I'm hoping to speak with a self-professed "prepper" or survivalist to learn more about their mindset and what measures they've taken to be prepared for an apocalypse event. I don't know how to go about this really, seeing as how you can't give out contact info on here. I guess I will just post the questions here, so any and all can just jump in with their answers. I will gladly credit you in the article.

Your answers can be short, but I'd prefer if you elaborated on things rather than just give one-two word answers. Ok here we go:

1) How long have you considered yourself a "prepper" and what was the main cause for the start of this behavior?

2) What, in your opinion, will be the most likely cause for an apocalyptic/human extinction event? (Disease, war, AI, invasion etc)

3) What measures have you taken to make sure you're prepared?

4) How much money have you spent on your preparations? A considerable part of your annual income?

5) Do you know others who share your concerns? Are you a part of a community that feels the same way?

6) How far off do you believe this apocalyptic event is? Why?

7) Are your survivalist actions something that define you (i.e. is it all consuming, daily preparation etc) or do you lead a fairly "normal" life and just do this in your free time?

8) Have there been any recent events (Ebola, Swine Flu, North Korean nukes, etc) that you thought for sure were going to kick off this apocalypse?

9) In a post-apocalyptic world, what would your main concern be? Simply survival, or something bigger like repopulation or creating a new government?

10) Considering your preparations (shelter, rations and other supplies) how long are you prepared to last if/when an event occurs?

Thanks for your time guys. Like I said, I'll gladly credit you in the article and I can use answers from multiple people so feel free to chime in even if someone else has answered.

1) All of of my life i've been an avid outdoors entusiast and survivalist, but the older I grew and the more I learned about history, war, technology and geopolitics, the more those skills began to feel imperative. I was without means to "prep," as such until about 2005.

2) Combination of changing climates and scarcity of the fossil-fuels whose burning accelerates them. Nuclear Winter as a result of escalating aggression School the usa, n korea and china. A super-virus is innevitable but is on no certain time-frame, though the anti-vaccination echo chambers are certainly not helping prevent it.

3) Training in local fire-building, geography/flora/fauna, pioneering, hiking, cartography, orienteering, medicine, climbing, rifles, shotguns, handguns, bows, sailing, rowing, canoeing, s.c.u.b.a., MMA, languages seealso, bug-out bag >>13685 plus a tough vehicle, a very fast vehicle and concussive body armor

4) Under $500 worth of gear, unless you count vehicles or like park fees for hiking and stuff

5) 10 years ago nearly everyone I ever met would scoff at the concepts covered in your OP, now people seem to be vastly more hep to existing conditions which justify preparations. Still, i've only even met a few people who do more than acknowledge that they should "stock water or something." In fact the few who are quite prepared, really need to be any way, as they live in a part of the country where no one else lives, there are no power lines, no gas or water mains.

6) I don't believe anything. The answer to how soon it could start is oh hey, >>13811 already inb4'd me! i like this guy. I guess this is an opinion question, but I don't have much of an answer. I'm more concerned with where I live collapsing in on itsself, and that could go down whenever. Worldwide.. seems like we've been in ww3 for years now. About to update myself on some of the more recent Schooln stuff here in a minute.

7) Yes. Always. It doesn't make unable to function, but it's apparent, if only subtly, in everything I do.

8) Nah, not since '01.

9) Survival first, then tribalism, then restoration of knowledge and tech and destruction of theism. I'd like to mind my business, but let's not be naive. People are terrible, desperate people are dangerous and there is no good or bad. I'd hate to see the world progress to or past feudalism unless theism was eradicated. I'm not rebuilding a world with that shit in it if i can help it.

10) I'm prepared to raid what I need for a long time and gtfo out of dodge when i need to. I'm above the outskirts of two cities out of their way and close to water.

Assuming you also have the clothes on you back, and the scenario is collapse of society, I'd say you're pretty well off.

That shovel is a tool, a weapon, and your shelter. Break into places, dig into shit, and whack people around. Dig a hole in the ground to sleep, or lean it against a tree and cover it with branches for a makeshift roof. Your tuna might've gone bad, but that doesn't mean you can't just leave it behind. Use it as bait to attract animals, then beat the shit out of them with your shovel. That can can be used for storing stuff, and if you bend the lid a bit you can make a makeshift arrowhead. Before you use that book for wiping your ass or tinder, read the hell out of it. You might as well be married to the people you're surviving with. Knowing when they're going to turn on you is crucial, so you can turn on them first. That microwaved DVD is hardly just a slab of disfigured silicon; it's your one and only plate. So what there's a hole in it, go cry about it to someone who cares. And when it breaks, make sure you pick up all the pieces. They'll come in handy for when you need to stab someone. And finally, that toothpick. How many times have you looked around on the ground for a stick to poke something with? Well, don't worry about that anymore, because you've got the best poking twig around now. Other survivors will spread tales of you and your trusty poking twig, while they all stumble around with bent pieces of branch or pine needles.

You've got a good thing going for you, 8/8.

Anyone else "prepping" for the end not because you feel like its coming, but because you wish it would?

Like I'm doing nothing with my life and the only way I would ever get out of my mundane "blue collar" existence is if society collapsed. I don't even have any hobbies I just try to keep myself entertained with TV and video games.

So I prepare for the end, just hoping it comes and whisks me away to a more interesting life.

Hell, I have medical problems and my teeth are rotting out of my head so I probably wouldn't last more then a year or two.

I had a few questions.

>Is this a serious threat? They're already testing people in Sacramento for possible exposure.
>In the event of a mass outbreak, what's the best course of action? I'm assuming head for the most secluded place you can find and trench in, try to keep your area clean and shoot anyone who get's too close to your camp. Ebola spreads through contact, if I remember correctly, so isolation seems best.
>What should be added to a bug-out bag to prepare for Ebola or other viral situation. I'm assuming chlorine sprays, disinfectants and protective gear, but what else?

i agree with the above 2 posts.

Ebola, from what i've casually read around on about it, is a flash in the pan disease, that for all of its horror and epic destructive capabilities to the human body, cannot generate any staying power in the face of even the absurdly basic (euro-american) turn of the century 'wash your hands with soap or bleach, wear a mask and scrubs around sick people, and boil contaminated stuff' level of medical precautions and quarantine procedures.

Therefore, Ebola CAN ONLY be at all effective and lethal against primitive tribals who are among the poorest of the poor, who live in tightly enclosed slums, and have no real medical knowledge of any kind. This means that only 3rd and 4th world countries and populaces are susceptible to having Ebola and other similar plagues sweep through an area and kill 8 out of 10 people.

in america or europe, the most that ebola could do, was to infect maybe adozen people, before being quite effectively brought under control in its early symptom stages.

answer each question as if the world as we know it as ended.

"you come across someone who has made personal sacrifices in the past in order to help you get on your feet in a finicial struggle. now that society has completely collapsed he has come to you for help. in order to give him the bare minium he would need to survive it would deplete you supplies by 50% and you dont know when you will be able to replinish your supplies, would you be able to do for him what he did for and give him half of your supplies"

>first card
a plane would never get off the ground so this situation is kinda flimsy, id probably sacrifice my self (lol white knight) as im kinda fall on the grenade kinda guy. really would come down to heat of the moment

>first post
personal sacrifices when there was a well fare system is differnt then personal sacrifices after the end of the world. by handing out 50% of my supplies, which seems like an awful lot, ive just shortened my survival by that ammount. id likely help him, but not in a way id directly hamper my own survival.

>2nd card
quarantine. you cant have infection spread through the group and kill us all.

>2nd post
in my situation, seeing as i dont have a fire arm (or a bug out location to begin with) id likely be trading, how ever if i do have fire arms with surplus ammo i likely wouldnt be trading as id rather keep the food and water. if did trade the 12g is the most practical. 308 is heavy ammo that will take down a deer no problem but would likely destroy a squirl. a .22 is the other way, light but only head shots on deer to kill them. buck shot is a nice middle.

>3rd card, dont have a kid and i have really complex thought paterns (kinda like a retard) so idk what i'd do. likely nothing as depression would likely cause me to stop preforming life functions. revenge probably wouldnt be top on the list as i rationlize things even from other peoples points of view as much as possible.

>left card
id likely contact the "elders" of the group and make a official report with them. i never want to be the leader, i dont like responsibility. if left to my own devices id likely place the person looking to kill the other under arrest via the entire group. this would need to be settled asap as we cant have betrayal in the group and the moral needs to stay up. depending on the offense and verdict of the trial id make my decision. it may be execution, exile, or seizing each parties fire arms. if i had to make a choice now with out any more information, id kick the person looking to kill the other one out of the group.

>middle card

exposure to the elements will kill you faster then lack of food and water 3/4's of the year. ranking fire arms above the other 3 is fucking idiotic. ill just get your guns after you die of hypothermia/dehydration/starvation.
