    You know it's actually funny I was just about to make a post about exactly this sort of thing. I was watching Pitch Black with Vin Diesel good movie by the way. And one of the guys on the movie makes a comment that struck home." You can live without the necessities of life provided you have the little luxuries".
    Does anybody prep for the luxuries. I know some will say it's a waste of space waste of carry weight butt there has to be more to surviving than just survival. What about actually living? Has anybody prepped for any vices that they might have? Other than a deck of cards does anybody have plans on bugging out with some sort of entertainment to keep up morale?

    I have a bottle of 20-year old Fonseca Port in my kit. If you're gonna be miserable might as well enjoy it.

    Me too!
    We started this as an idea of sitting on the roof, opening the bottle, and watching as Soviet nuclear bombs blew up Portland and Seattle.
    Now it's kept in reserve for the possibility of trying to make it through 3 months of rain until the post-earthquake/volcano roads are rebuilt.

    I once heard from an Air Force Parajumper that he only carried supplies with at least 2 uses. He then explained the 50 things he could use popsickle sticks for.

    A blowup doll would be similarly useful.

    Anyways, I keep a log of Copenhagen in my doomsday kit.

    C'mon, all those years stranded on a desert isle... the REAL question is who had Ginger, and who had Mary-Ann?
