    I think this is a pretty interesting and valuable document - it covers pretty much everything you need to know about prepping and it's easy to understand and digest.

    A major issue is going to be trying to have enough fuel and electricity.
    I have taken steps to ensure that I have some amount of electricity. The fuel however is going to be problematic.
    especially since 87 octane gas is $4.27 per gallon at my local Costco, and that is the cheapest in the area.

    everything and anything that could possably happen.
    if you look online there are many sites on how to build your own homade generators, including wind fans, also (if you want to know how i can tell ya how) you can run gas generators off of burning wood vapors, as far as gas/fuel buy a couple 5 gallon gas cans a screwdriver or an ice pick, when shtf, everyones going to try n leave all at once bottlenecking road ways/freeways, after a few hours of not moving most will abandon their cars for shelter, food etc..., just punch a hole in their gas can n fill'er up, the only problem would be that it wouldnt take that long for everyone else to figure that out either.

    Great idea!
    I would add one item. take along some insurance (whatever caliber suits you) as you never know if there is going to be an opportunist who will wait for you to do the work then try and take your bounty!

    My idea is to keep the preparations simple to begin with. Considering the most important items are: food water, shelter, first aid and heat source also doubling as a cooking source. New preppers can be easily overwhelmed, so the simple idea is a calm attempt to begin the prepper journey.

    First off godselfme, WB! im glad to finally be able to talk with you!
    although i agree simple steps are a good way to start, i personally feel DD is coming quick. i think people should learn/do as much as they can before its too late to do anything at all.

    I do tend to follow the KISS method, "Keep It Simple Stupid." I start small and work my way up double checking at certain stages to insure I have not forgotten anything. I also like to search on line for what other people are gathering to see if it will jar my mind in to grabbing something to make me better prepared.
