    Excellent @soyer38301 ! It doesn't have to be crazy complicated, but everyone should have something!

    I also recommend having a real phone book on hand. All of the written phone numbers of your contacts, in case your phone is broken and you need to get a hold of someone. It's amazing how many people don't even know their families number nowadays.

    Let's see-I have 3 years worth of food, a 220 volt generator for the well, a solar generator for the furnace, a solar generator for rechargeable batteries, a 1000 gallon underground propane tank, 25 gallons on non-ethonal gas, 5 gallons of diesel, guns and ammo, lots of pillows and blankets, a good wife, a great dog, a couple of funny cats, two years worth of firewood, lots of books, lots of tools, good neighbors, a close knit community, and privacy. I do have 4 baofeng portable two-way radios and a yaesu vx-8dr but I probably wouldn't be using them much.

    You are indeed well prepped, but can you remember the phone number of everyone in your family and friends circle?

    I think this article is more for the less prepared and the city folks.

    No worries. I like to bring up the basics on occasion, and having some type of communications plan is a good idea that gets missed by many beginners.

    Note to beginners-I'm not called the "old guy" for no reason. I've had a lot of time to prep. I grew up on farms, went into the Army at 17, saw first hand just how dangerous the world we live in really is and have basically been prepping my whole life. I have found prepping very satisfying. So my advise is don't get overwhelmed but never quit. There is no end point only the journey.

    Old Guy,
    You are right about it being a journey.

    Once upon a time; many, many years ago; in a land far, far away the guys all called me Doc. I learned RDQuik about how it can be dangerous. So I understand the kinda/sorta prepping all your life. For me it started even before I became Doc. All the way back to when I started to follow the motto “Be Prepared”.
