well then we would be reduced to one word answers-which would eventually limit the vocabulary of everyone, thereby hastening the downfall of mankind....

Rayz is correct we would quickly turn into the mindless wordless drones those in gov want us to be. Lmao jk jk jk. The one thing I've learned quickly is that there is no one word answer around this group of fellas. There's 10 different answers or 10 different methods or 10 different ideas. But not a bad idea.

The real question is could we give simple short answers, you have to admit a few of us are rather long winded, I won't name any reptilian members!

Hi there, It's a good idea to start the quick questions like quiz competition and I think that it helps us to know our knowledge especially because it takes less time to know that what we have learned till now. We just need to opt the single option and the result is in front of us. If we try to answer like this quiz, we can learn many answers in a short time period.

You have a point only that the possibilities are endless, it is life there is no one set of problems that insert themselves and surly some questions have no answer.and with no solution death ensues take the basic tenement water, shelter, food, fire.

I have lived in areas where shelter was not a problem as the weather was mild storms seldom and existing flora could be made into shelter in hours or less food abundant but water was impossible to get to without tools so there is no one size fits all.

there are no professionals in their trade or work that have not come across a problem that could not be solved there was either a limitation on time money or some resource that could not be overcome doctors see it all the time it is called death.

I akin this to the movie Apollo 13 I think it was where the whole of NASA is faced with a problem on the space craft and using communications they form a list of available objects on board that could be re-purposed to fix their dilemma,  what is not expressed is that within a specific time all options would be rendered moot. with no communication chances are frozen corpses would be still out there or a very expensive recovery consider the space shuttle Challenger

Mount Everest 280 people have died were they inept ill prepared ? I would say no never the less there are 280 people dead.

Anyone can have all the supplies they will ever need and die sometimes the answer is NO ! but there are people that make a living pondering and forming armchair scenarios that would make the incident survivable except they were not there 70 million died in WWII some had the best that money could buy and died children with nothing survived they may have eaten food unfit for rats half froze sold their bodies lied stole but survived there is no mathematical formula to survival it is all in the cards your dealt and how you play them and psychological wit and or determination and people still leave Vegas broke.

Prepping is doing your best while you have the time and resources learning is great but fate is always there at our elbow if your not prepared to die living is fearful and untenable many well prepared and or wealthy people commit suicide every day because they cannot face the uncertainty of tomorrow or take life as it comes without some crutch be it alcohol drugs physical connection to an object person place real or imaginary like shopping cart people speaking an unknown language to themselves laughing at voices we cannot hear and have done it for years volvo are the safest vehicles does not mean no one has died in one !

Your asking for aq flash card version of surviving it is like needing one extra letter in a tweet or having to send more than one with numerous abbreviations ppl may not nO .....

Ask your questions and many of us will attempt to answer does not mean it is right wrong or indifferent like Yogi Berra said once, "It is what it is"

    • sounds like your wearing a 1970s leisure suit, good mention though
    • already do all that my traps are right now live traps damn coons and squirrels are my trouble but since they taste good no problem to big with more taters and gravy. anyone that is not up on self defense or "gun" handling is way behind the 8 ball. it's not that training is not important but there comes a point where your gilding the Lilly and dry firing is the cause of more firearms damage than every other use of a firearm unless one uses a snap cap and if you already know how when and what to shoot it's not time well spent.  Prepping the art of being prepared I am already there all I do ow is back fill and reorder until the flag goes up.  I'm sure I will want some new toy but to be truthful if people can keep their head down 90 days there will be very little to deal with as all the unprepared will have dealt each other out of the game. Cabin fever and doing ninja rolls in the urban jungle scoping out all the stuff you should already have only places you in the cross-hairs of a opportunistic sniper who's spotter will clean you like a chicken for Sunday dinner.  water holes are always a bad place to go to as everyone else will be needing /wanting water. depending on the situation rivers streams and wells may be polluted by the dead since animals will be left to their own roving packs of dogs will add to the otherwise difficult task of roaming around. many a good man has walked up on a spider hole handful of punji sticks leg traps fall traps etc etc etc. its great to be an armchair commando the field test is a bit trickier. I can also see where like many countries in the recent unpleasantness released their zoo critters I know of people that keep large dangerous exotic pets. roaming through homes and commercial centers may lead to some real surprises people are funny that way if they want to punish people that try to steal their sh*t  it may have strings attached ! I already know how to field strip or dress most anything I will encounter that I need or can use if it takes a large vehicle to move better to decommission and move on. piles of goods probably have love apples hidden and some have NO DELAY click bang in a real nasty world there are thousands of ways to meet your end and curiosity kills more than cats. most fields can hold hundreds of people ask any Masai warrior .  Mountains or hills can hold an avalanche of rocks and Switzerland has never been invaded by any army since 1499. Defenses are not always perfect as General Patton stated, that fixed fortifications are monuments to mans stupidity".  Sun Tzu, " The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.  My quote is screw em' all but 6 and baptize them in sh*t  or If I follow anyone they are in chains. whoever said it ," if you want a friend get a dog was a deep thinker and knew the frailties of the human condition.  If you see a dog growling at it's own shadow think of me I have trust issues    
    • they'd better be learning hand to hande, working out, gun handling, dryfiring and studying survival subjects on the kindle reader, grinding grain, checking the nets and traps, etc. What makes you "think" that there will BE any leisure time?
    • a lot depends on what the critter has been eating. Rat probably tastes a lot better than squirrel that's been eating hedgeballs.
    • make a world of difference. So does the polypro bag that i put between the "breathable" and heavy-duty mylar bags. The soft armor boxer shorts and vest  help quite a bit  as insulation from the ground as well as padding on hard surfaces.  Now I'm good down to 20f, no problem in the hammock, or on the ground if there's any debris for padding/insulation. If I had better circulation in my legs, or if i'd use a Dakota fire pit to heat rocks and water bottles, i could go 10F colder.  But then need the super shelter and a fire all night, for colder temps.  If have several pits and use them all night to heat rocks, those rocks will warm  you most of the next day, placed under your hammock, or your raised wooden bed. Thus, no smoke for enemies to see. The later afternoons are typically 15F or more warmer than late at night, and you can usually get away with a Dakota pit fire a bit before dusk, since they'd have to try to find you in the dark.  That is, if you've got night sights and night vision. :-)  Anyone moving in that cold is going to crunch snow or frozen twigs. So the guy who's holding still is a lot more likely to be the one who detects the enemy first.
