When I lived in Upstate NY I had blankets, hand warmers, and one day food+water. Plus my ham radio. I need to get back into that habit.
My uncle always said to keep a candle in your glove box because the heat from that alone can stop you from freezing to death. I do but I hope I never need to find out whether or not that’s just :duck:

Prepping has always been a weird phenomenon to me. Outside of you waking up to a zombie apocalypse (lol) I don't see the point in having bug out bags ready to go and spending all this money prepping.

There isn't a single realistic catastrophic event that you wont see coming days... even weeks/months in advance.

shyt we just went through the worst pandemic in U.S. history, and it didn't require any of this shyt. If I traveled back to 2019 and said "next year a deadly global pandemic will run through the entire world, kill millions and everyone will be on lockdown" to some over the top prepper he would have spent his life savings on supplies and retreated to his basement because shyt is about to hit the fan. But in reality, its very hard(almost impossible) for our government and infrastructure to deteriorate to the point where prepping is viable or even necessary.

Things like hurricanes are possible exceptions but only effect certain areas, are detected days in advance and since Katrina mandatory evacuations are more and more common.

Since I'm a gun nut, I do think stock piling ammo/guns is smart simply because of shortages and gun law uncertainty. But shyt like MRE's and 100 gallons of water.....breh :francis:
When I was little, I asked my mom why every rich person doesn't have a fallout shelter...

She looked at me and said "Would you even want to live after some shyt like that happened and you and the other people with shelters were all that's left"

Never thought about that shyt again... I'm not trying to live in no shyt from The Road.. I'm good..

I made a post about a picture with a copper head snake that was hard to see in the woods: Watch your step in the woods...(can you see the snake)?

Some of the brehs in the thread mentioned to wear boots. And come to think of it...I don't own a pair of boots. I have casual shoes, dress shoes and a couple of sneakers.

What kind of boots do you guys have?

A good food to keep on hand for a go bag or even sustained power outage type situation is granola bars. Oats and other additives like peanut or almond butter have tons of carbs and proteins and can set you up for a while. Honey is the main sweetner. A good basic recipe is here

You can substitute the honey for brown sugar or condensed milk or another sweetener but honey is good and the peanut butter/almond butter can be subbed for butter or coconut oil. I am pasting a basic recipe below. Since these have no preservatives, make a bunch (not expensive) and freeze and you can throw them in a go bag in a jiffy or eat them slowly during a disaster or power outage.

Ingredients​


Original recipe yields 8 servings

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup honey (or condensed milk or sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (or almond butter, butter, or any other substitute)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square baking dish.
  • Step 2
    Spread the oats and coconut evenly across a baking sheet.
  • Step 3
    Toast oats and coconut in preheated oven until browned, about 10 minutes; transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  • Step 4
    Mix honey, peanut butter, vanilla extract, and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir until smooth. Pour the honey mixture over the oats and coconut; stir to coat. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish.
  • Step 5
    Bake in preheated oven. Bake 8-10 minutes for soft and chewy, up to 15 minutes for dry
