What am I doing here if I am deployed? Well I love hearing and seeing ideas everyone has on prepping. I started prepping before I left, getting my wife started in the right direction for when I get home. Looking for the right equipment (knifes, BOB’s, guns and other essentials). Being in the Military I have an idea of what I am looking for but it’s always better to have more than one thing in mind.

I believe if you start prepping for a Zombie out break you will be ready to survive anything else. Having a good perimeter, food supply, clean water and things to take your mind of things are the essentials to surviving.

Welcome! Never too early to start preparing! The idea of zombies will get you started but really prepare for live, thinking hoards/masses...you gotta be smarter to outsmart those! :D

I will admit Zombies are a stretch to be ready for. I just believe in being prepared for anything the world can throw at you. But like I said the same things you need for a economic collapse and the uprising of angry people are the same things you would need in a Zombie apocalypse. A good secure location, a good defense and a strong food and water supply. Plus preparing for Zombies is just so much fun. Gota keep a positive attitude when SHTF.

Saylor,
I would be very careful on the sites that you visit while deployed
I am surprised that you can access this site?

I do have some insight on cyber security while overseas

I’ll be honest I don’t know too much about the after effects of an EMP. I know it destroys any electronics and I know a faraday box will protect them. I guess a good start would be getting some sort or radio or communication device to put into a faraday box. Right? Thoughts?

I’ll be honest I was surprised when the network let me on this site.

if you look up emp of 1859.it'll at least give ya a good idea of what a emp can and will do to electronics when it's strong enough.am/fm radio with emergency frequency.my mom came across one in a catalog thats solar powered and also has a hand crank to charge it up as well.a portable cb radio or some soruce of comunication.solar panal(s) to recharge all electonics and battaries.
