I am just curious if anyone on here has a survivalist streak? Im talking about being prepared for ordinary power outages, hurricanes, blizzards, floods. I know I have my truck set up to be able to go more places or get out of places the regular sedan can't. Understand I don't have the end of the world mentality, but since I left the comfort and security of the military and all the resources of a military base, i've started thinking of being a little more self sufficient in a bad/worse case scenario. I don't bury guns or have 10,000 rounds of ammo, but I am able to defend my home.
I want to get to where I can homestead for at least a month without outside help or support. If I needed to Bug Out I want to be able to sustain my wife, my dog and my self for 2 weeks and have the ability to travel a minimum of 1000 miles.
I'm getting pretty close to that and its not as expensive as I thought.
If I sound like a fanatic let me know. I think I'm just being prepared, sensible and doing what I can to take care of my family.
All thoughts and comments welcome.
