Survive The Apocalypse

Updated on September 14, 2013

Survival against Darth Vader's Imperial Troops, or maybe just economic and social Armageddon!

Are you prepared for the end of the world (as you know it)?  You will need shelter, water, fire, and food. Do you have the knowledge of foraging for food, combat and wilderness first aid, creating impromptu tools, weapons and shelters? With some of these products listed below you may have a chance to survive indefinitely in the wilderness or in a ravaged urban city center.  Good luck, vaya con dios!

Stock up now, it is only a matter of time....

Are you prepared for the end of days?

Will it happen tommorrow, in 2012 as predicted by the ancient mayans, or is it happening now? You need to be prepared. Swine flu, alien invasion (from outerspace, or maybe from the "undocumented" workers too..), political and economic upheaval, civil uprising...the below lists will prepare you for what's ahead. Are you ready?

Tools and weapons, it wouldn't be the end of the world without them!

Can you bring down a buffalo with your bare hands? No, then you may need tools to fashion a spear! Don't forget about digging latreens, and building fortifications! Be prepared and have the essential tools when it is time!

Books you need to read, now. - Are you prepared for Financial Armageddon?

Financial Armageddon: Protect Your Future from Economic Collapse [FINANCIAL ARMAGEDDON REV/E]
Financial Armageddon: Protect Your Future from Economic Collapse [FINANCIAL ARMAGEDDON REV/E]

"A Magnum Opus of the facts and figures of the astounding monetary and fiscal stupidities of the last decade; the incredible financial ignorance, intellectual sloth, and shameful gluttony of the public; and the despicable, pandemic corruptions that made it all possible." -- Richard Daughty, the Mogambo Guru

"An absorbing report on the gruesome inner workings of the Frankenstein Finance monster that is dragging the rest of our economy into a dark future." -- James Howard Kunstler, author, The Long Emergency

"The definitive work on our economic future. Read it now or dwell on the consequences later." -- Bruce Stratton, SafeHaven.com

"Timely, accessible....Readers who follow Panzner's advice will be among the few who successfully weather the storm ahead." -- John Rubino, co-author, The Coming Collapse of the Dollar and How to Profit from It

 
The Coming Economic Collapse: How You Can Thrive When Oil Costs $200 a Barrel
The Coming Economic Collapse: How You Can Thrive When Oil Costs $200 a Barrel

In The Oil Factor, Stephen Leeb accurately predicted the current oil shortage and showed how savvy investors could profit. But now the world is facing an energy crisis of unprecedented scope, and the recent surge in oil prices is only the tip of the iceberg. With meticulous research and analysis, Leeb shows that due to strong competition from India and China for the world?s oil reserves, prices could soon top an astounding $200 a barrel, bringing an economic collapse that most countries and investors are ill-prepared for. Now in this groundbreaking book, Leeb shows how this crisis will affect you, but how savvy investing can turn these dire times into financial gain.

 

Food and clean water, don't forget to stock up. - Where we are headed, there are no Costco's to pick up that jumbo dog and large Coke!

You are not going to last long against the hordes of invading zombies or swarms of locusts without food and clean water. Get these items while you can and you will be the most popular person in your neighborhood!

First aid and fire, pretty important stuff. - Ask a caveman, he will agree - fire and neosporin always come in handy.

You are going to need to tend to your wounds after the hand to hand combat with throngs of the undead, and you may want to cook a nice T-bone after you work up your appetite - don't forget first aid kits and fire!

You are going to need shelter! - Heading for the Mountains, stay warm and dry while hiding from the forces of Mordor.

Tents and sleeping bags are essential if you are going to survive a nuclear winter or an extended stay away from civilization. Sure it is not as restful as staying at the Holiday Inn, but better then rotting in the gulag!

More important survival gear

Okay, you have the basic things to survive - water, food, tools, shelter, but don't forget these last few items to make your Armageddon survival kit complete: backpacks, canteens, tarps. Now you are ready for whatever natural or man made disaster is waiting for you!

In case you don't want to stock up on canned or freeze dried food, you can still have a healthy meal when armageddon comes.... - All you need is a .22, and no g

Squirrel melts! Yum, Yum!

      Deal with fear first. Fear is a killer. Then make preparations with wisdom and a clear head. Prepare for the worst, then hope for the best!

      I have as good a chance as any, right here. I can't fathom walking long distances with a tent on my back, and I won't be able to get gas for my car. I know what's edible right here. Obviously, I'll eat it.

      in addition to my comment below, why BUY this stuff when you can simply STEAL it after everyone is dead? and if anyone actualy bought stuff from this; its been a complete waste of money. the world wont end. you cant survive the end of human existance.

      this is bull, its the freaking APOCALYPSE! e n d o f t h e h u m a n r a c e ! there would be no possible way to survive this event whatsoever. for all we know this could be a scam and getting people to do everything and go places before the world supposedly "ends". the thing about Y2K ? DIDNT HAPPEN. the mayans predicted the world would end on 2008 too! DIDNT HAPPEN. if the world were to end in 2012 people would be taking MUCH more precautions to protecting very important people and making sure that they are safe and have every single thing they need plus more.

      [in reply to Shooky] My daddy drove a Ford. But yes, one could view this as a reasonable site to prepare for the upcoming problems. If you are interested, please feel free to preview my Libertarian blog, still in it's infancy. Also, highly suggest reading "Crash proof" by Peter Schiff if you really want to freak out.
