Just trying to get this back on track.

Now that you've found yourself, what's your top tip for the budding survivalist?

I have a question.

How many 20L NATO Jerry cans Should I carry? I was thinking 4? or 5? with 2 spouts? - Thats roughly 20gal and with a full tank, that gives me ~600 - 800 miles range. - All things considered.

I've used an MSR HyperFlow filter for a few years. It works well, but I recommend adding a pre-filter to minimize back flushing. I'd also recommend keeping a good supply of Aquamira tablets on hand. Skip the nasty iodine treatments. I also have a SteriPEN for use on clearwater trips. It works well, but I still keep those tabs in my pack.

I use a pair of 24 gallon ActionPackers for food storage when car camping. One holds the grill-stove and all the rest of the food prep stuff, and the other is just food. I usually have room for more durable food in the stove box. I may add a platform to better organize the bed. If I take my camper, I don't stack things in the bed, but without the trailer, the Softopper gets stuffed. At the least, I could keep recovery gear under the platform for easy access when loaded.

A full one weighs 35-40 lbs. Better keep that in mind when figuring it all out. A manual syphon pump would be useful.

Food Storage Supplies

If you guys are looking for some great food choices, I ended up buying from Wise Foods. I have a 7 day bucket for each person in my family along with a couple one person 3 day kits.

I have a similar system with action packers - essential camping gear in 1 and the other for optional/as needed items.

I use the sawyer squeeze filter. Been using it backpacking for years. Small and easy to use. Fits in a glove box. And best of all - pretty cheap.

Anybody seen TheUrbanPrepper's channel on YouTube? Has a fan-fucking-tastic video write-up on his BOB and EDC bags. Truly one of the better setups and walkthroughs I've ever seen.

Then of course there is SensiblePrepper and sootch00. Been watching a ton of shit on YouTube about SHTF stuff.

Do you guys honestly worry about earthquakes quite a bit up there? I feel like it's similar to how us Floridians worry about hurricanes, except that we know when a hurricane is about to hit. True?

Only reason I ask is there is a remote chance that we will be relocating up that way soon and it's something I've wondered.

Interesting. Is it a pretty common fear/reason for prepping in that area?

I completely agree with this. The assholes in the movies who kill people for their food and steal their gear would be completely legit in a real world situation if things ever got real desperate. If some stranger dirtbag had a choice between stealing your stuff and/or killing you just to save their own ass, they very well would.

I don't know if anyone has seen The Road with Vigo Mortensen, but it highlights the times when things do get desperate. I found it is on Netflix now.

Just read your edited version and completely agree with you.

I was just curious if the fear of earthquakes played a large role in people's preparations in that area of the country.

I've heard similar stories. Again, completely agree with you.

Depending on how all of this stuff goes at work, we'd be looking at either Seattle or the Denver area. Really wherever we want, depending on the job market.

We'll be in Seattle next week visiting my brother that works for Microsoft, where I'll be interviewing, so we'll see how that goes...
