    What Are The Top 10 Doomsday Prepper Supplies?

    Doomsday Preppers are people that are preparing for catastrophes like nuclear war, pandemics  or other types of major disasters. Some prepare for war, extreme fuel shortages and even solar flares. What are the top things one would need to be prepared for just about any disaster of large scale?

    Seeds--not the modified type. Guns and Ammo. A way to build shelter. A way to purify water. A food supply to sustain you and your family until a garden can be grown and harvested.

    Water, water purification tablets, food, waterproof tarp for shelter, one of those striker things to make fire, guns, ammo, knife, generator, fuel.  Lots of other things would be nice, but those are my top ten.

    1. Common Sense - not everyone has it. Be able to sift through the good information and the stuff that can get you killed.

    2. Water source - stored water or natural source

    3. Food - stored or find it which leads me to #4

    4. A good field guide for identifying wild edible plants

    5. A military grade survival guide

    6. Weapons and ammo. I think a bow would be best, it is quiet and you can use arrows until they break.

    7. Mobile cookset

    8. Shelter building skills or a tent

    9. Water purification system - I like the straws that last for 3 months. I forget who makes them, but just having a few stashed in bags, kits, and in the car would be ideal.

    10. Friends who share your mindset. A strong community of like-minded survivalist can work together. Community can be a few people or many.
