Pre-ordering State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition from select US retailers will net you one of three in-game knives, Microsoft and Undead Labs revealed today. Allow pure logic to dictate your actions, especially when it comes to taking the first step, which is the adoption of a disaster survival strategy. If you are considering some level of disaster preparedness for yourself or your family then this article may provide some insights so that you might avoid making a classic Prepper mistake. The first thing that anyone needs to do is dump all emotion and info based upon trends and pumped-up tactics that are being bantered by some bloggers, and allow pure logic to dictate your actions, especially when it comes to taking the first step, which is the adoption of a disaster survival strategy.
In order to take the first step, you will have to conduct your own due diligence into the actual frequency of occurrence of the various risks that might impact you and your family; this is your disaster preparedness risk analysis. Finding yourself in this camp of thought will dictate the preparedness strategy and the supporting tactics and equipment that will serve you best.
In the foregoing exampled (abbreviated) scenarios, most people will fair well as a function of such basic preparedness coupled with the aid that may be forthcoming as needed from areas outside the area that has been affected. On the other hand, those people who have done the calculus and who have studied their history may come to the conclusion that the scenarios that were depicted in the movies previously mentioned are in fact statistically plausible. If you find yourself in this camp, then your strategy will be considerably different than those people in the former. The concepts that support a strategy for surviving a large-scale long term event are of course more comprehensive than those used by people in the short-term camp, but would allow applications in both short-term and long-term events.
Among other significant long-term survival benefits, equatorial areas that meet the sea are very rich in resources, have great year-round climates, and are also outside the areas that would be most heavily affected by things like radioactive fallout (Northern Hemisphere). At the end of the day, anyone who is considering large-scale long-term disaster preparedness should seriously revisit the issues (risk analysis) related to choosing the right survival location, which if you’re living a prepared lifestyle, should be your home.

Bringing Personal Problems to the Political RealmTrying to solve personal, community problems at the national political level is a recipe for absolute disaster. The other day I was looking around, and this may happen in cycles, but on this day there seemed to be a higher than usual percentage of web pages, YouTube videos and articles on the subject of the Survival Tin. One of the great things about a survival tin is that anyone can create one of these by yourself, and like I said, there are hundreds of videos at least on this very subject. Pretty impressive if you think about it, that all of these little items can fit into that small container.
But whenever I look at one of these tins, I imagine myself carrying it every day and wondering what situation I would need to be faced in that would make this tin something that would actually help me Survive. The survival tin is just a small example but I know of people who buy tons of survival gear. The most important item you have to consider is your mental state and that is what you need to pack first.

And if you’re already well on the road to preparedness, this article might be the catalyst for re-working your strategy, supporting tactics and equipment.
But that’s not how it’s done; you must adopt a survival strategy first, and then comes the tactics, equipment and supplies that support the strategy, not the other way around, as I see done all too frequently by a lot of misinformed people. Your risk analysis, which is specific to you alone, should be done in the absence of any sensationalism or incorrect group mentality (doesn’t matter what others are doing); it needs to be based largely on mathematical statistics (how often do things happen in your location and region).
Unfortunately, FEMA’s current advice of 3-days (72 hrs.) worth of water, food and supplies is inadequate for some scenarios.
Having adequate water, food, equipment, fuel and supplies for the purposes of sheltering in place.

In these situations, which are well evidenced and documented in history, the need for extensive weaponry is an unwarranted expense (poor allocation of limited funds). Some people are aware of how the media intentionally marginalizes potential serious risks so as to avoid panicking the public (or should I say, ‘sheeple’?). You will need to adopt tactics, equipment and supplies that are effective in long-term, large scale disasters. And this does make things more expensive, but in the case of disaster preparedness, you may get your money’s worth if you do it right.
A survival location (preferably your home) that is located such that your exposure to tens of thousands or millions of evacuees is minimized, is the key principal!  Far too many people are not locating themselves properly (pre-event) and instead embrace the fool-hearty work-around tactic of attempting to militarize their survival paradigm as a result of adopting (or acquiescing to) the wrong fixed location (your home). Once a proper location is selected, the next most important consideration is sustainability and assuring a long-term living situation. One solution to the ‘location’ dilemma is taking-up residence on a large blue-water capable boat.
As the saying goes, no matter how hard you try, you can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear! And it Needs to Stop.Implementing still more laws that segregate and discriminate, Southern states showcase the worst of human fears and ignorance. As a prepper myself, I have to try to broaden my horizons from time to time because after a while of looking, you do start to see some repetition. The Survival Tin if you aren’t aware is billed as a one stop shop for anything you need to keep you alive, stored in a small container. The contents are all easy to find and can vary according to each person’s preference or situation you are preparing for. The goal of having all of these items with you in that small container is that you will carry it with you at all times. Most of us have pretty similar days in that we wake up, eat breakfast, go to work or school and then eventually come home.
The most impressive to me are the ones who create color coded lists of their inventory, mark everything with colored sharpies and place everything they have in a basement on shelving units from floor to ceiling.
You will need tools to help augment your natural inclination to live, but you can’t stop once you have purchased that lantern.
Seriously, if you want to call yourself prepared, an equal portion of this game is the mental attitude you need to survive.
This above all of the mini fishing kits in the world is what will keep you and your family alive.

Pre-ordering from Amazon gets you The Android, a state-of-the-art box cutter, while Best Buy will be handing out The Australian. The world (including the USA) has in the past been plagued by deadly pandemic disease and large-scale conventional warfare as a minimum, and the frequency of these events is not akin to events such as polar shift, impact by a near-earth objects, eruption of a super volcano or other such scenarios that occur on geologic timeframes (every 10,000 years+), even though such events can and do occur.
If you are forced to ‘weaponize’ your survival paradigm with an arsenal, you are located in the wrong spot! The right infrastructure, equipment, supplies and permaculture will help ensure long-term survival. This paradigm (living aboard a boat) is what I call ‘Nautical Prepping’ and is the subject of my book: The Nautical Prepper      The whole concept of ‘Nautical Prepping’ revolves around the use of a boat as your home and shelter, which also houses all your preps and can move away from any ‘perceived’ threat, before that threat manifests (a tactic unique to the paradigm). I guess I am guilty of adding to this repetition somewhat myself obviously with the Prepper Journal. By making this survival tin part of your Every Day Carry equipment you will be more likely to benefit from having these items when you need them. There aren’t a lot of opportunities I can see to use the tin but maybe I am wrong and you can think of a thousand ways these small items all make sense.
Sadly, it is some of these same people who take a car trip without having a first aid-kit or a map if they get lost.
You can take someone with a strong desire to live and nothing but a pair of fingernail clippers and put them up against someone who has an entire warehouse of survival gear and guns, but not a clue as to how to use any of their stuff and guess who will win? Survival tins and gear are all excellent tools, but make sure your head is on straight first and then regardless of what life throws in your path; you will find some way to make it through.

While most preppers discount the Mayan calendar doomsday prophecy, many are still getting ready for potential catastrophes as the end of the year approaches.

If you live outside the US, Microsoft advises you to check with your local retailer for pre-order details.
Therefore, a basic woodsman’s selection of guns is more than adequate to handle the needs for obtaining game and home defense (Shotgun, pistol, rifle).
Unfortunately, most of us don’t have the time and or the money to adopt an all encompassing strategy that can handle any or all of these potential events. If you are located properly, a basic woodsman’s section of guns is more than adequate to handle the long-term needs for obtaining game and home defense (Shotgun, pistol, rifle). Unlike people stuck on land in fixed locations, nautical Preppers can leave from an anchorage or a dock (marina) and head for an uninhabited island (or low population density landfall) in equatorial areas within five (5) minutes of suspecting or anticipating a mounting problem. There is content that we post that has been covered before, but I hope we add a different viewpoint in some cases. The contents are very creative and diminutively packaged so as to get a whole bunch of little things in one small container. It could be that some disaster strikes and you are no longer at home, but somehow transported into the wilds of Africa with nothing but your survival tin.
Ideally, that big generator you bought after last year’s blackout has been tested and you know how to hook that up and get it going quickly.
Any action taken as a result of information, analysis, or advertisement on this site is ultimately the responsibility of the reader. In the case of ‘bugging-out’ under this situation (short-term horizon), FEMA’s advice for 3-days worth of supplies makes sense (although minimalistic) and can be implemented with a properly provisioned backpack.
Think in terms of Las Vegas odds and the craps table; we want to make our bets with our limited bank-roll where we have a higher probably of an event. That means you have to be in a position to sustain yourself in safety for many months, possibly years. Another common mistaken tactic that results once again from choosing the wrong location from the start is; having to bug-out (if you’re not KIA) once you are discovered and overrun during of a crises and becoming an evacuee yourself. You can make that determination by drawing a circle around your proposed (or existing) location that has a radius of 500-miles (average range for a vehicle with a full tank of fuel). However, even with the proper fixed-locations, there are drawbacks related to job availability nearby and relocating away from family and friends. That means that if the grid went down (for instance), while other people are wondering why the lights went out, nautical Preppers will already be well to sea, with no need for any gun-fights or bleeding. I like to rationalize covering topics that have been well documented already by saying that there are different ways of looking at virtually everything under the sun and I am always game for finding or learning of a new way to do something.
Actually, if I wanted to I could easily rationalize how any one of these items could benefit me any day, but would they be required for survival? When this happens, you are successful in evading the marauders, you will as a minimum loose the majority of your mission-critical preps, placing you and your family at a severe disadvantage. If there are any major cities or towns within your circle, you’ll likely be overrun and killed.
There is another option which may not be for everyone, but may appeal to many, as discussed in #4.
