    I'm like you all and like to be prepared. I have a lot on here listed already in my truck. I carry a Glock folding shovel and Glock knife also along with a Surefire LED light and multitool. I also have a Firesteel in the truck at all times. I keep a bag of dryer lint in my BOB for tinder. Works great. And always have at least a case of water in the truck. I plan on getting some kind of water filter like hikers use to store in my BOB also. They are expensive. I would need to throw the guns and ammo in if the S ever did HTF per se. Hopefully the trouble wouldn't be from an EMP cause if that happened none of us would be going anywhere in our trucks. :eek:;)

    Staying put is going to be what happens for most of us....any of us living, working, or visiting a large city know how a small fender bender makes rubber necks out of thousands of people. If anything did happen I am pretty certain the local authorities would shut the interstate system down immediately. I plan to travel within an hour and feel we will always have access to back roads or we can always revert to making our own roads! The problem with waiting for something to happen is that the shelves will be empty at wally world and cabellas....look at the east coast who was pounded with snow and is without electricity still.

    This is one of the best threads I have come across. Lets me realize how unprepared I am. However I always have 550 cord, duct tape, a butane torch, first aid-kit, Gerber Axe, Tactical light, gerber multi-tool, KA-Bar last ditch knife, and a Gen 2 KA-Bar, and hi-lift, and the obvious recovery gear. However I do plan on getting a tool box for some camping gear and tools to always have on board. I also have always wanted a compressor for on board air tools.

    I live on an island that only has one bridge and right after the bridge is rail road tracks, luckily for me not too many people live on this island I would say only about 6-7 full time houses and 10 or so cottages.

    I've got what some believe to be a basic EMS kit. I'm the only one of my friends that is Adult Child CPR/First Aid certified and am the only one smart enough to realize that "Hey, Watch this" is the prelude to either something really bad or something really epic is about to go down and usually its the first of the two. Never leave home without it.

    I got my cpr and first aid training, but I am in the process of taking a ski patrol course which is pretty much first responders. My belief is that basic first aid and cpr should be taught in high schools. Luckily I have only had to use my first aid on some gashes and minor burns but who knows what can happen. Before I had my first aid course I got onto the seen of an accident. Felt hopeless that I couldn't do much but make sure the person was conscious and didn't move.

    That's about what happened to me. I was sitting in a steak resturant and the guy besides me started choking and no one knew what to do he stayed without air so long that he started turning blue and seizing. I just sat there and held his head so it wouldn't hit the ground. I've never felt worse than I did that day just having to watch it and not knowing what to do so my parents signed me up for a CPR/First Aid class and I fell in love with it. Now I'm studying to get my BSN and be a nurse one day. Thankfully tho I've never had anything worse than a baseball hit one of my friends right above the right eye on the brow that needed a butterfly until we could get him to the hospital for stitches. But if worse comes around I know what to do and never have to have that feeling again. And I to believe that CPR/First Aid should be taught to everybody.

    good on you for working towards becoming a nurse. I would never be able to do something like that I hate hospitals. Having said that 1 of my dream jobs would be paramedic. I like my ski patrol course because its very in depth. Going in it felt like after I was done I could be a doctor. We have to learn the all the systems in the body. Its pretty tough. I can't wait for the next session though its addicting
