Whether it’s a natural disaster, bioterrorist attack or pandemic, experts reckon society as we know it will collapse within 2 months of a catastrophic event. So what do you do next?
First, you can't do this alone. You will want to have a group of people to help support you and your family. If you try to survive by yourself you won't be able to rebuild any kind of normal society. The more people who band together, the more likely you are to be able to rebuild and survive long term.
Second, go rural. Don't stay near the city or areas with a large population of people. When the power goes out and food is scarce, people start to panic and that is not the place you want to be. Find an area away from the general population, total isolation may also not be a good idea, for the reason given above. You need a group of skilled people who can work together in order to build your own supply chains and survive.
Third, find a water source. You want to make sure wherever you go that you have running water, like a stream or spring. Water is a major key player in you and your family surviving off the land. Finding a location near a water source will make the difference in the length of your survival.
Fourth, you need to be able to communicate with others. Be prepared with old school technology. Your i-Phone may not work anymore once servers start going down and good-luck with a WiFi network in the middle of the woods. Stock up on walkie talkies, two way radios and batteries.
Finally, learn how to hunt and fish! The best food source for your group will require more than a stop at the grocery store. You need to have guns, fishing rods/kits and plenty of ammo. You also should take the time now to learn how to use it.
Hopefully, you never have to use these skills to survive but if you do, you will be more prepared....
