Preparing to survive if the world turns to crap.
What did you do this weekend? I put together a survival closet. Whether or not it's useful at all is still up on the air, but that remains to be seen.
So the idea is twofold:
I chose a closet in my tiny spare bedroom. It's an unused room except for my workout bench, a cot, and my filing cabinet. I had some junk in that closet and I cleared it out to make room for this stuff.
So what do I have in there? To bug out quickly in a "I have to get out of here 2 minutes ago", I have my bug out bag. I also have most of my mylar bagged food, which includes rice, beans, dog food, pancake mix, green tea, pasta, nuts, split peas and other assorted dried foods. I have them packed in four plastic storage tubs with lids that have a positive lock on them. They're small but each one weighs about 50 pounds or so. This is to facilitate bugging out when I have a bit more time and a vehicle, or having things in one place for bugging in. I have a bunch of 10 liter jugs of water as well, ready to go or to use.
The only thing I don't have is my firearms and ammo, which I keep in the basement locked in my safe with the ammo stored separately in locked boxes to comply and exceed Canadian firearms storage laws. That one is very important, complying with current laws, all the way up until TSHTF or there is WROL.
What do you think? Would you store things in one place or have them scattered?
