There are the obvious things one should have to be prepared for an apocalypse:
1. Water or some sort of filtration or water purification system.2. Food3. First aid kit with medication (antibiotics).4. Firearm of some sort and ammo.5. A good knife.6. Matches.7. Clothes (it’s probably going to get cold). Don’t forget some good shoes.8. Shelter. Either find some or bring a sturdy tent.9. Rope (it comes in handy).10. Duct tape (you can do anything with that stuff).
Then there are the not so obvious or handy things one needs to survive an apocalypse:
1. My hubby. I don’t know what I’d do without him. I could surely survive alone, but with him I could do anything.2. Board games. Monopoly, Pictionary, and Cranium are my weapons of choice. I kick @$$ at them. One needs to keep occupied when faced with utter boredom.3. My library. My TBR pile is so deep it could keep me entertained for years. Huh, maybe I am a prepper after all. ;)4. Notebooks. Without electricity, this is where I’ll have to do my writing/scribbling/thinking.5. Chocolate. This doesn’t need an explanation, does it?6. Chap Stick/Sunscreen. If you’re going to be outside a lot, these will come in handy.7. Yoga/sweat pants. Comfy=Happy8. A dog. Not only are they great companions but they can also warn you of danger.9. Tools. I’m a very handy gal. I’d finally have time to tackle all the furniture refinishing projects piling up in my basement.10. Toiletries. Without toothpaste and soap the smell alone might kill me.
Thank you for having me!
