A tow bar on the front so I can drag it with the motorhome. Oh it already does!

Sell it and buy a M38A1. If it runs on gas and doesn't have a carburetor, points, and a mechanical distributor, it isn't be expedient repairable. If it is a Diesel, it must have a mechanical injector system.

If we are talking Survival/tactical mostly, then carb and mechanical dist are a must. After a "e-bomb" the medusa effect would render any electronics unusable. That is the extreme though. If you have bugged out prior, then you probably are not in the zone.

Communications will be important, both rx and tx. We need to hear whats going on and be able to comm with friendlies at distance. Big watts help get out. I know many here, do not agree, but they most likely will not be with you when you need it, don't worry about it. Properly used watts can be effective, get a ham license. Learn about RF and antenaes how to make them and direct them.

Ever try to make a phone call after an earthquake? Forget the cell phones. Even if the repeaters are up, they will be overrun by panic calls. I have handheld radios that put out more watts than a CB and can generate DTMF tones to send codes or link up repeaters.

Guns obviously, that is a personal preference what you carry. It will depend on your territory and situation. Knives, many styles. I like knives. Learn the basics of making one, try your hand at knapping one from stone. I would bring along my Bowtech Guardian too, it is virtually silent and scary accurate. The smoke chrome color would have to be dumbed down of course LOL. A couple dozen carbon fiber arrows

Water, lots of it. Food too. Some kind of water purification system. A place to sleep, maybe a roof mounted tent.

Lots of camo and camo paint in spray cans, enough to do a vehicle, support equipment and your guns. Camo nets to cover your vehicle.

Recovery gear: Climbing, jacking, winching, blocking, etc. I have synthetic line on my winch now, but steel may be the choice in a bug out situation, you can abuse it more (JMHO)

A bunch of Bibles. Stash em around. New King James preferably (for me anyway). This will be one of our rights lost after our gun rights are taken, stash em together.

First aid, and even stuff you are not comfortable with or don't know how to use, maybe someone else does know how to use it properly (on you?).

Solar panels, flexible if possible. solar panel regulator(s), a few deep cycle batts will make life easier.

This is fun! Luck favors the prepared.

My thoughts are on this if the world turns into a chaotic mess like that I'm not sure I wanna be in it. I don't own guns or a food stockpile. I prepare for most everything but that.

Unfortunately, when and IF we get there, there will be all to many people who would happily oblige and take you out of it in order to "take what is not theirs". What ever you do have, will be worth a premium for sure. Makes it tough for me though, I have an obligation to protect you and your loved ones.

All the preppin is for naught. Doomsday aint never gonna come. It is happining so slow nobody even notices. Has been since the sixties. Those that do prep are called crackpots and psyco. Fact: The police are now heavily militarized. And the cop mindset is : If ya got it use it. I am 65 years old and ALL MY LIFE I have been watching our rights evaporate one way or another.. Am I prepped. Hell yeah. does it matter? Hell no.

I prepare mostly for getting a wife, 3yr old, and dog 500 miles away. Things like katrina huricane Sandy and local emergencies happen all the time. I live within an hours drive of DC and I'm convinced a terrorist event will happen again in my lifetime around that city. If that happens I'm going to depend on a few pre packed bags, a couple of small arms, cash and a well running vehicle. I don't prepare for TEOTWAWKI because you can't. Too many unpredictable variables. Light and fast is the key. With that said I would love to have a home way up in the mountains as a vacation spot and retreat to be able to live off the grid and be totally secluded from the rest of the world.

After an EMP (electro magnetic pulse) your electronis won't function. If it has a chip, it's done. This includes the electronis ignition on your vehicle. Ever wonder why military vehicles are diesel and have mechanical injection pumps? Diesel is safer for storage and transport. GUNS, GROCERIES, GOLD any two can get you the other and you can survive. How much do you know about living off the land and or zoo? What is your definitio of friend? Who can you trust? Is your "friend" willing to give his or her life for yours? After the Boston house to houses searches, what is next marshall law? just an old man's thoughts on living in a country where you are not the top dog. Ron

I don't get it. I'm slow and stupid, please be patient. I do want things, many, many things.

How about those links to your research? I am very interested in YOUR findings.

Is it stricly the eng's over on ar15.com?

AR15.com isn't just full of engineers. It's mostly black gun lovers. I'm a member, but I haven't been to that section. I'm going to find some of the posts, I'll try to post the links.
