When you first decide to start stockpiling food and storing water in case the SHTF, there are 5 items many consider essential and should be in every prepper’s arsenal. These 5 items will help you get a jump start on your preparations with the added benefit of giving you some peace of mind.

Like I always say, this is by no means a complete list or one that cannot be altered and tailored to one’s specific needs.  It is a simple starting point for beginners to springboard off.  Everyone starts somewhere and oftentimes, all we need is a little guidance to think about things in ways we hadn’t before.

    Sneaky way to sell the book, “The Preppers Blueprint”, and the items listed along with it could be many like;

    1) Rad-Meter (radiation meter) You CANNOT measure fallout or radioactivity without it.
    If you’re in a survival mode it’s highly likely because something like a nuke, dirty bomb, radioactive water contamination has happened and it is completely invisible until it’s too late. All other survival gear can be acquired easily during a disaster… not a rad-meter.
    2) Gerber Bear Grylls Fire Starter
    3) Life Straw
    4) tarp
    5) multi-tool

      Major, In your message you said, invisible until it is to late. That sums it up, the actual SHTF may start the problems but the lack of so many to be prepared will when the “S” begins. Thank you for your good ideas, we have been preparing for about 10 years now and dealt with those invisible to what is coming both spiritually warned and physical day by day. Stay safe and God bless.
