This has probably been discussed before but I'm new and unfamiliar with the search feature... So lets hear it! EMP? Bunker? Polar shift? Bug in? Forign invasion? I'll start... I'm most concerned about an economic collapse. Our federal debt is out of control, inflation is going up, unemployment is too high, seems like a bad combo to me. I live in the city so I have an INCH crate (plus what I keep in the tool box of my truck: jerk strap, come-along, flares, jumper cables, shovel, axe, snow chains, bolt cutters, fire starters...) with a variety of seeds that will grow year-round here in the PNW, reference books (mostly medically related) a week of mountian house for the wife and I several pounds of vacuum sealed long grain rice, first aid kit, can openers, rooster tails/lightweight rod, hand saw, 4-8x12 tarps, 6lbs of canned tuna, 3- knife sharpeners, a couple of tac knives, 2-0 degree sleepingbags, passports, vacuum sealed matches/lighters, grill, gallon of grain alcohol, 1000' para cord, more fire starters, 4k rounds of 22, 500+ 30-06 rounds, 1k 45 rounds, 300 .380 rounds (wife's pistol) 1 weeks worth of dog food (for three dogs), 10 gal drinking water. Plus what I carry on me every day and my secret bartering item. I have no use for precious metals as I personally can't tell the difference in 14-24k gold etc. I also have no use for "black guns." I don't like the way the feel in my hands and consider the .223 round useless. Everything you can shoot with a .223 within 100yds; I can shoot with my 22lr, past that I can shoot a 4" group at 400yds with my '06 I also plan on grabbing my .22 pistols and rifles (4 in all), wife's Walther, my good 'ol trusty '06 and my HK which I trust my life to every time I leave the house. I think that's about it. It may sound light to some of you but I grew up in the woods as a son of a survival school instructor. I have a vast knowledge of local edibles and consider myself good hunter and fisherman. The only reason I have this much stuff is to ease the wife's mind. I've found a landing on a logging road that dead ends about 3 mi off the main line at about 2100' elevation in the cascades with water near by on a south facing slope with a 1000 yd view in all directions and 17 mi from "civilization" I think I'm good please feel free to critique my preps and share what you may have!
