    And don't forget to keep one last bullet...for yourself. You will need it.

    Just curious, Im completely ignorant of this. Why would a volcano eruption cause a nuclear winter? No politics. Just curious.

    The theory is that the explosion will be so big/ catastrophic plume of smoke and ash would cover, poison the atmosphere blocking the sun, causing a nuclear winter.

    Not directed at you alone but just in general....

    Does one with guns and ammo go out and look for those items or stay and protect the homestead? If you go out looking for more supplies you may not have a homestead when you return as someone else with guns and ammo and no homestead just took yours over.

    It's all rather interesting to think about.:confused:

    First of all, thanks for the comments so far. I'm aware a few of you don't like me and your comments reflect that. C'est la vie.

    As to the event, that was just a starter to think about. The most likely scenario with Yellowstone is it would kill a dozen states within the wind zone, then block out the Sun for 1-2 years. Transportation and society will collapse and anarchy would ensue.

    The planet will survive. Most of the clean survivors will be in the government hideaways in each country. Russia will probably save the most.

    I assume you and your family will need a safe place to hide. To me, that is the hardest question to answer.

    Water, shelter, food, medicine, weapons seem to be on the top of the list. Islands of like people to protect each other would allow you to survive.

    I worry that those in our military might resort to using their weapons to survive at our expense. Where could you hide?

    So the answer to surviving a catastrophic planetary event is probably you won't.

    A minor incident that causes society to break down, which to me means stopping the trucks, would be survivable with the proper preparation.

    And that's where this thread continues.

    I think the most survivable food available for us includes those Hormel sealed meals. They are rated for two years, but the company thinks they could be a source of nutrition for 5 years or more.

    Energy and comrades are the rest of the key.

    Any more suggestions/thoughts?
