    1. Flood 2. The standing plan is to bug in. I live midway up a hill so water would have to rise quite high to pose a problem. I have enough food stored to last a month or so and enough water for a week with the ability to purify and filter much more. I have the ability to quickly fortify my apartment lightly and weapons for a last resort defense although I am planning on purchasing some less lethal alternatives such as pepper spray or a stun gun. As a fallback plan there are three possible bug

    I would have to say dogs are great survival companion animals. They're your alarm system, they're hunters, they're your protectors and they provide much-needed companionship, just like people. I also think cats are good because they are easy to maintain, will keep rats and mice away from you and your food storage, and they're great companions (but not good if you're going to be moving around). I would love to have a horse, but they are a lot of work to maintain, and feed/medicine costs a bundle.

    I'm mostly concerned with a major solar event (like the Carrington event of 1859) that could knock us off the electric grid for weeks/months/year.

  • 1. Disease/Pandemic 2. My plan is to bug out to a small town were my family lives before the disease spreads to point were the government can't control it. With the food I have I can live 2 months, (more with hunting, and fishing being a factor) I have many weapons including knives and guns, and much camping gear. I would travel with my sister, mother, father, and 2 dogs.

    @Deavin B- The Yellowstone Volcano should erupt every 80,000 years. It is 60,000 years past its due date. The power and effect it would have on the world would be catistrophic and can happen at any moment. I think it is impossible to know what one will first. but my money is on yellowstone.

  • Viral out break or disease because diseases and viruses are constantly evolving and eventually i believe it will get to a point where we can't keep up with it. another reason why i chose disease is because even with all of the conflicts with North Korea and other countries, there are militaries and government officials who can calm the countries down.

1. Flood 2. The standing plan is to bug in. I live midway up a hill so water would have to rise quite high to pose a problem. I have enough food stored to last a month or so and enough water for a week with the ability to purify and filter much more. I have the ability to quickly fortify my apartment lightly and weapons for a last resort defense although I am planning on purchasing some less lethal alternatives such as pepper spray or a stun gun. As a fallback plan there are three possible bug out locations planned for myself and my family. The first and most likely, is a local friends house who lives far enough away from running water that flooding would not easily pose a problem for them. The second is family about 50 miles away. The last resort is a isolated spot in the mountains about 40 miles away to bug out to and stay off grid for as long as needed, although that is a worst case scenario plan more than a local disaster plan. In any case, BOBs are packed and ready to go for all members of the family. I have always kept "just in case" as my mantra. The next big investment will be a good quality inflatable raft.
