FamilyFirst up we have the immediate family members, Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, and their kids, maybe even your grandparents, also aunties, uncles, and cousins. It’s a long list, it really is. That’s a lot of people who may turn to you in the event of a disaster and ask, or even expect you to take them in, feed them, clothe them, give them water and basically look after them because they didn’t prepare. Now I know there are some of you out there who will scoff and say it’s an easy decision, they’re your family so you let them in. And I do agree with you, I certainly would and many of you would too, however, there are those in the survival and prepper communities that would happily turn their backs on a family if they didn’t have enough to keep them all alive. Is this wrong? I don’t know, all I know if that for me and the vast majority of you reading this will open those doors and let them in. Heck, you’re parents brought you into this world are you really going to turn them away? I also believe there is some very logical thinking going on inside the heads of those that would turn them away. I mean you have a small family of 4, you’ve prepared enough supplies to last 6 months for those 4 people. If you let in just 2 people you’ve immediately cut your survival time down drastically. If your brother or sister turns up with their kids, you could be looking at reducing that 6 months down to a few weeks per person. Kinda makes you think, doesn’t it?

FriendsWe all have friends, some of us are just as close and see our friends just as often as we do our own family members. It will be hard for many of us to turn away our buddy of 20 years if he/she was to turn up after an event that caused people to panic, loot, riot, and cause harm to each other. The saving grace in this situation is that you are very likely to know your friends, their habits, their mindset, and if they will bring anything to the table. Survival could well and truly be a numbers game, so having an extra pair of hands around could help. If you’re the only one in your family/group that can shoot? What happens when you get sick? You can’t be on guard 24/7, you will need to sleep and eat and use the bathroom. Having another adult or two, especially ones you know so well can put your mind at ease and allow for a normal existence as possible after SHTF. Personally, I have a mental list of my friends. They each have a tick or a cross to indicate who will get in and who won’t. They are ranked based on what they could bring to the group such as the right mindset, physical or mental abilities, and even just have the right attitude. Is it time for you to run through your friends and decide who is likely to show up, who gets in and who gets the boot? Related article: You Will Be Overrun By Family And Friends When SHTF!

NeighborsYour neighbors may actually be the very first people to show up on your doorstep if you have chosen to bug in or go underground to your bunker. They are likely to be the first tough decision you have to make and I think this section will split you 50/50 down the middle. You see half of us get on fine with our neighbors, we have them around for dinner and lend each other garden tools, the other half of us argue with them about the parking situation out front or the overhanging tree branches that you don’t want in your garden, or how much noise they make. This is why I think it will also be an easier decision as you either like your neighbors or you don’t. It’s also likely that you are aware of their mindset and if they are prepared themselves or not. Ever get funny questions about what it is you’re doing in that garage and what’s with all the security cameras etc? Small conversation topics like those can be an in-road to the mindset of your neighbor and to find out what he/she is really like and how likely it is that they have a grip on their family’s survival.
StrangersWhen it comes to strangers, the vast majority of you will take the “Stop, or I will shoot you” approach. Some will be hidden away or at a retreat away from people and traffic. I myself would likely take this approach too, I mean you don’t know or trust that person walking in the park, let alone the guy with no food and a family to feed. However, I want to bring up an alternative, something that would make me question my initial response and perhaps let them in after all.
3 Superfoods That Cost Almost Nothing To Make And Will Keep You And Your Family Well Fed No Matter What Happens. One was praised as the great depression “food miracle”. The people that knew about it banished hunger for good…while the rest where starving and tightening their belts! Not only that you will learn the exact process of making it the right way, but you’ll use it to preserve meat in it and create one of the most finger-licking, mouth-watering tastiest foods you’ll ever eat. And the best part? It lasts up to two whole years without refrigeration. The other food was also long-lasting. Invented by one of the most vicious samurais in history, it was born out of war and necessity. So don’t expect a gourmet meal here – but do expect this “samurai superfood” to be so nutrient-rich and probiotic-packed that you and your entire family won’t need anything else for months on end. With these 3 superfoods alone, you’ll probably have a complete stockpile in your group and you’ll never need to depend on anyone else in times of crisis. Watch the video below and learn more.
Bring Your OwnSay a guy and his wife with their small child comes around, they see you grabbing last minute stuff from the garage and he asks if he can hole up in your place as their home was burnt down by rioters and looters. His wife is sat in the truck, the bed is full of containers, backpacks, and camping gear. You can see he has a rifle on his shoulder and a pistol in his belt, but he has his hands raised, so he means no harm. He tells you they have brought everything he’s been tucked away in his garage for a rainy day like today. They have enough food, water, and ammunition to protect themselves but no shelter or friends/family in the area as they have just moved into town. What would you do? Me…I would talk to him some more, ask to see his preps, and quiz him on how long he thinks the food would last and what skills he and his wife have. More importantly, I’d ask what he does for a living and where they relocated from, to get an idea of the kind of terrain they are used too. I would meet his kid and ask him some simple questions about mommy and daddy and what happened to their house. Kids are terrible liars, the younger they are, the easier it is to spot. You can also get a feeling for how scared he is, what he/she has seen, and other little signs.
UnpreparedLet’s flip this now, the same family turns up with nothing with them. He doesn’t even have a weapon, just open hands and a wife and a kid. Do you stick to your original pre-thought-out plan or turning them away? Telling them you have only enough for a few days for your family and you will be leaving soon? Perhaps a show of force with your weapon clutched and ready to go? Let me propose this, what if you just had a conversation with him?
Additional SkillsYou can see he has no physical goods to offer, however, he tells you that he has his own business, hand-building log cabins and his wife is a nurse. Would that change your mind? He clearly has good hands-on skills, perhaps he could help to board up the windows, fell trees for firewood or fix doors and other items. His wife is a nurse has a great skill-set that would be in great demand. You have a first aid kit and you’ve practiced a little, but that’s not going to be enough if you lose a limb or a family member gets injured. What would other skills be useful? Here are just a few ideas off the top of my head:
- Firearms experiences
- Medical training
- Procuring food and water (hunting and foraging)
- Electrical and Mechanical training
- Animal Husbandry
- Primitive Weapon Making
I highly recommend this book to everyone. 300 pages, color, paperback. The Lost Book of Remedies is helping Americans achieve medical self-sufficiency even in the darkest times using the time-tested methods of our grandparents without spending lots of money on toxic drugs and without side effects. A great asset when doctors and hospitals won’t be available any more given the current situation. You may not be Claude Davis, but you can make use of his procedures and techniques to increase your chances of survival!
