This is awesome!  Thanks for putting this out there for those of us that are starting, or re-starting, have something to use as a guide.  We all forget little things.  Hell, I had a buddy a while back that had tons of canned goods in his store room for Y2K.  When I, jokingly, asked him about his can opener, he pulled out his notepad and wrote "buy can opener"
I'm tired of having to filter the crazy out of the news.

Hello, I am Victory1  I am a newbe to this site, but not to survival. I am submitting a list thst I have put togeather over the last ten years. probably not right for everyone, but a real start in the right direction:

                                                                         Survival List :-X
Be debit free.
Go to church. Believe in YOUR God.
Have your own private water source.
Live near like-minded people where God still plays a role in real life and be ready to protect them.
Align with people to share skills and labor. Better than money!!
Know who your friends are. Keep your friend’s close, your enemy’s closer and your guns closest.
Raise your own food. Know how to process it. Pressure canning preferred.
I have a 1979 non-computerized pickup. We also have bicycles, plus two motorcycles that get over 45 mpg.
Have a good chainsaw. Know how to use and repair it.
Have wood heat backup.
Have a solar/wind-up radio, have extra light bulbs, batteries, bee's wax candles and a way to make more.
Use non-hybrid garden seeds only. Save harvested seeds for next year and for bartering.
Have some guns and ammo HIDDEN.  Know how to use and repair. Have supplies needed for reloading.
Have a good security system. (Make it public, even if you DON'T have a Security system).
      (A good dog & a good gun is your BEST security system, let your feelings be known publicly).
Have 1 year of survival food at 1 good meal per day per person. 25-year shelf life.
Have medicine and First-Aid knowledge (books) plus medical supplies. Do NOT rely on the Internet.
Have the basic trade books. Carpentry, plumbing, electrical, tooling etc.
Have a lath, mill, welder and variety of hand tools if possible.
Collect & save assorted metal stock.
Learn engine repair, also any other skills that will benefit.
Have a good 6000 watt + gas generator. Will take care of water pump, freezer etc. (The essentials).
Have 100 gallons + of gas with additives for longevity
Have copies of important documents in a safe place.  (Sealed container in the ground, PVC is good).
Buy quality if possible.
Sharpen your outdoor survival skills.
Get skillful at bartering, worth more than money.
Have 6-month cash on hand. Use money as last resort, (if that will be worth anything)!!
Value all you learn by what you can earn.
Be willing to protect your own first, your neigbhors second.

     My daughter is a doctor in San Diego. When it all goes south and IF she can get home she will be bringing emergency meds home by the bag full.  I ‘ve also been getting additional meds that she has perscribed.
      I am a retired Toolmaker and Process Engineer and have all the tools to make about anything and I can, which will help us if/when our economy goes in the crapper. Except for my wife, who is still working, we pretty much live like this. We raise two beef critters each year. We eat one and sell the other, plus venison and other wild game)!!
     For pistols I have a .380 Auto and a Colt 357 Mag/.38 Special. I also have a .270  and a 22.250 Rifle both zeroed at 300 yds.  I handload for all my guns and have enough to handle any situation.  I also have a Browning 12 gage that I reload both shot and a killer sabot slug of my own design. I have made 9 black powder flintlock guns (not Kits) and have about 15 lbs of powder and 200 lbs of lead.  I also have many different die sets for other calibers for barter value.
     I have a good Security System and a mean-ass dog. Couple that with my guns and my Viet Nam background, I wouldn't want to break into MY house. (people around here know that)!! If anyone ever wants any advice feel free to ask.

gigaJack,
Congrats on the move to a farm, I hope you plan on sharing the 'details' with us as well as updating the Survival Summary. My wife and I have always found you very inspirational and always look forward to your videos and posts.
You only get one shot at life. There are no do-overs. Live up to your own expectations, be proud of who you are, and above all be happy!

  Victory1, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders.
  GigaJack, wow, spent a couple of hours catching up on your vids, congrats on taking a large step closer to self reliance.  Did you lose the white rock that bled as a chick?  Keep up with the vidz and hope the farm life works out for ya.
