      I was looking into prepping, but my dad had a good point. He said that there will never be food shortages in the west. That shit happens in countries like Africa or Asia, not the USA. If we all starve to death here it means its the end of the world for everybody. So he said don’t even bother prepping, if theres nothing left, we’re all dead.

        Bad things are already happening to the American transportation infrastructure.. I work on tractor trailers that’s pull for huge distribution companies…the big dogs..and we are having insane parts shortages making it impossible to repair semi trucks.. things have been getting worse over the past year and no end in sight.

                If Biden was smart, he would encourage American businesses to hire American and produce critical infrastructure items in the USA. And give them massive tax incentives to encourage them to make the USA self sufficient.
                It would probably be a good idea for each individual state to be self sufficient.

                  You can never be fully self-sufficient nowadays. You’ll still neeed to import oil, coal, rare earths, plus you can’t really expect all states to have their own chip foundries and what not.

                  That shit requires technical skills that the US no longer has, developing a factory line from scratch and developing the logistics of raw material acquisition just doesn’t happen any longer. In the 1880s-1960s these kind of engineers were all over the freaking place, now there is likely less than 10-25k in the entire American population. China didn’t just capture the work, they brain drained the entire industry so it cannot recover.

            there is a massive shortage of water pumps for trucks as well, and they are not easily remanufactured/rebuilt as they now have electronics and clutches to save energy when not needed, supply chain is pretty stressed right now

          This is the only vaguely realistic mechanism for North America to starve to death. A collapse of the transport systems, either due to public uprising, fuel shortage, lack of spare parts or simply shoddy road maintenance.

          The cities depend entirely on transportation woke af supply chains and will be the first to suffer.

          I guess its possible another dust bowl type depression will come round again but provided the supply chain is still working, global food will be accessible.

          Yeah things can get bad for a while (Hurricane power loss etc) so maybe there is some merit in storing a week or two worth of food. But if you are really worried, get the fuck out the cities.

          You preppers are wasting your time and money.

        If a food shortage occurred on a mass scale one of the results would be dramatic poaching and over hunting. Hunting may actually eventually be really hard in a post collapse situation. Should be good for a few years of hunting, or more if you’re really rural.

            The average american doesn’t even know how to cook. Following a recipe is like calculus to them. There’s a sizable minority of americans who eat fast food for at least 1 meal every day. Even more who simply eat nothing but pre-cooked, frozen meals.
            I’d wager the average american has less than a week’s worth of food in their homes. Many have less than a day’s worth.

          I know the russians made a stupid reactor awhile ago, but the propaganda war on nuclear energy is real. If you don’t monitor a reactor and keep power at a manageable level, reactors generally just shut themselves down via a spring-loaded hafnium rod that gets thrust into the core.

            hot is still hot. Most active power generation reactors require an active cooling system. luckily if power goes out then diesel gens kick on, but about 30 days (or maybe 3, or 7, i dont remember) later they’ll run out of fuel. if it goes critical again things can get hot, pressure goes up, but thank god for that garden gnome and the terrible 2 (towers) and the fucksheemee event containments structures should have last resort pressure relief systems so they dont pop and spew. If steam is still circulating uninhibited maybe the steam turbine will overspeed and explode and you might catch a rotor or blade or something to the dome. I forget where I was going with this…oh yea, fuck wind turbines! I freaking hate them, those pieces of shit.

      Remind him what happened last year. Ask him about how much everything costs now as opposed to 2 years ago. There will never be "food shortages" because the survivors will be smart enough to grow their own food and the remaining food on the shelves will be too expensive to buy.

      sounds like you are slightly less scrotebrained than your dad, you do know that we’ve had famine before and depression before, right? if your dad can honestly look at the stock market over the last 2 years and compare it with the market he’s known the rest of his life, and say "this is normal, nothing to worry about" then i don’t know what to say. If he can then look at public policy, the pandemic, and supply chain issues and think it’s normal, then he’s a lost cause. Right now you can flip burgers for minimum wage and in a single hour, make enough money to buy the same amount of food that would take tens of hours, if not days or week to grow yourself. If you are not taking advantage of the massive easy street while the getting is good, then you are a lost cause. Food right now is 100x easier to procure than it would be in a collapse, meaning you are getting 100x your investment, if you think there is a 1% chance of things not turning out so well, then its a massively smart investment. Food is dirt cheap, living day to day with no food, pretending like Walmart is somehow a God given right, and humans evolved over millions of years because they were excellent bargain shoppers at the local Aldi is freaking scrotebrained. I am 100% prepared to lose everything I own, but at least I know I spent more than a freaking hour of my life making sure i didnt starve to death. It’s too easy not to do, but I get it, "if things are hard, then why bother" is the easy solution to every problem and exactly why people suck so freaking bad.

      scrotebrained doomer mentality.

      If you have enough food for ~6 months that will ideally be enough time to either ride out a crisis or grow some potatoes.

      A famine doesn’t mean there’s literally no food over night. Supply slows, prices go up, one day at loaf of bread is $35 and people are stealing food. Thens upply stops completely, or becomes so expensive that a regular man cannot buy simple staples.

      Then people begin foraging, stealing from each other.

      If you are comfy with your 1000 tins of corned beef, you don’t have to go into the fray and fight for food, you just sit, eat a simple diet, and wait for the shit to blow over.

      Every famine in history has blown over, whether man made or nature made. Having 6 months – a year’s food is smart.

        Growing food is hard as fuck and any distruption in our current agriculture industry would kill at least 50% of the planet in a no bullshit famine. You simply have no freaking idea how intensive farming is and how many things have to be working to even receive the basic inputs let alone successfully produce a crop or deliver it.

        I’m a primitive agriculture enthusiast soon to be using oxen on my farm and I’d be dead without stores of food if I couldn’t shop tomorrow.

            people don’t realize that even if they can actually grow something, it takes about 70 to 90 days to harvest.
            you’ll have to eat in the mean time.

            even with hunting it isn’t as simple as kill it eat it. you have to dress it or it’ll taint the meat, you have to skin it which sounds simple but if you’ve never done it before it isn’t exactly easy your first time.

            the same goes for foraging, if you don’t know what you can and can’t eat you’ll get sick or die. I can see some scrotebrain thinking he can eat acorns and get sick best case.

              Not to mention you know they will be growing whatever seeds they have lying around while having no butter or butter alternatives stockpiled. You’ll have people with mountains of vegetables after they’ve been starving for months, they’ll have to eat all of this with nearly no seasoning or even butter because they didn’t stockpile. They’ll eventually get to the time of year where corn is growing and 90% of americans will have explosive diarreah from eating 20 cobs of corn a day.

              Uhh, did not realize there was an issue stating that higher carb/calorie veggies would be favorable to something like celery. I have everything I need stocked, not just a garden. You clearly have a tenuous grasp of the English language, though.

                  Assuming they’re 30 to 40 pounds overweight they probably will, if they even get it in the ground in the first place. They’ll be severely underweight by that point, however, and will likely not get the weight back on in time for winter when they figure out that their tiny garden isn’t enough to get them through the winter and they don’t know how to preserve the food anyway.

                    Virtually no one seems to know how to properly preserve food any more. People think I’m weird for canning food and preserving meats. No one knows I do it large scale and have reserves (for safety reasons.) The dehydrator makes sense to people for some reason, it’s just anything beyond that.

              Six months of hard living and your normal shoes are gone. Not dead and taped up looking like hobo, I mean simply dissolved. People have LONG forgotten what a decent rugged pair of boots is worth when the furthest you walk is from the closest parking spot to your walmart, and you might run with sporty sneakers a couple times a week. If anything serious happens, you are walking, everywhere. Finding a ride might be impossible, and when you are not walking on simple level interior flooring, your shoes take a beating.

              A solid pair of modern working boots will make you a year, maybe two if you know how to repair and upkeep them. If you are going rugged environments thanks to kinetics or wildlands, lasts far less.

              >muh boots last years when I go hunting and hiking in them.

              I am talking about living and doing shit that keeps you living. Not fantasy girl power walks and nature tours. Boots are freaking gold tier preps, belts are very important, and knowing how to repair your clothes and have the sewing kit to do so are every bit as important as having self defense but most preppers never mention this child tier level understanding if they’ve ever actually lived their ‘world’ in practice if nothing else.

                I’ve had a pair of red wings for almost 20 years, I work in them but nothing extreme.
                even then I have to get them resoled every few years and without the leather cream how long would that last? the stitching was starting to come undone once.

                you’re 100% right, even a good pair of boots isn’t last for more than a few years max in a true civilization breakdown scenario. cheap ones maybe a few weeks

          >Dude why stock up on more food now? I can always but what I need later!
          scrote mentality. Food prices will inflate, stockpiling a few months of food is cheap and will save you trips to the grocery stores, along with allowing you to buy a lot of food when it’s on sale and cheaper. You eat the food anyway and its price is never going down, you might as well buy more now to shield yourself from the price increase.

          Growing lots of food is relatively simple, although extremely time consuming. The hard part is preserving it and making enough variety that you don’t want to kys for eating potato every day.
          Another thing to consider, you can supplement your diet with greens all you want but so much of that stuff is low calorie, corn, beans, peas, potatoes, and sweet potatoes are the best "survival" things to grow but all of these are labor intensive to get a meaningful amount on a small scale. So many people will be eating just greens and weigh 130 pounds because they didn’t grow enough high calorie food.

Gonna survive on that big boy or are you gonna weight 120 pounds and have to whore yourself out to the man down the road who decided to have a reasonable stockpile of grains, legumes, and meat? You probably don’t even have enough pasta to make decent tasting food with all of that tomato, and there’s almost no tuna fish there, 20 sandwiches worth.

          he owns it but I can promise you he just leases it to near by farmers. depending on the fertility of the land and yields you can get like 250 an acre during good years. it varies.

          it’s a small but absolute steady income with no real risk. Gates is buying farmland because it’s the best protection against any economic bubble crashing.

      To put it bluntly, your dad’s freaking scrotebrained. When Sandy happened my area was out of power, in some places for up to two to four weeks. If the power goes out over a large area the shops eventually shut down, you can’t get money out of an ATM, you can’t go get fast food; without power the water quickly stops running; and the most violent members of society tend to be the ones with the least preparation. After a day with no power people started behaving erratically; after three days things got really out of hand. I ate nothing but ritz crackers for three days; I keep more food in stock now.

            It doesn’t happen like that. There’ll be thugs and gangs that do most of that, largely avoiding each other. Pretty much everything will be peaceful until a force comes and says it’s time to get disarmed. What you’re talking about will happen in diverse areas for sure. But men will create gangs for survival and find useful people to protect against the masses who will be hungry.

      prepping is easy and it isn’t just for shtf scenario. here in the Midwest straight line wind can knock out power for days if it’s a bad storm.
      or look at the green cluster fuck in Texas. as we go more into that grift, blackouts will become common.
      if you’re prepped you can sit at home relaxing with power, food and water.

      there are also chimp outs to think of. If you live near non whites the threat of a chimp out is always there. the police won’t touch them or prosecute them so best to hunker down.
      I’ll shoot any rioter threatening me on my property. I’d rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6. my saiga 12 will end any bullshit instantly.

        Unironically people need to take a couple days and just fast to see how it feels. I did it myself and it was an eye opening experience. As someone without any body fat, I was noticeably weak by the second day and all I could do was think about food. I never want to be in that position and not know when my next meal is so I keep 8-12 months of food on hand for myself at any given time.

        defensive positions will always have the advantage, easier to protect your food (that no one knows you have) with guns, then be out on the street hunting for food. if it’s a last option, then so be it, but if that is your primary plan then it’s a pretty bad one.

      Piece of advice, look at things from the perspective of North Korea famine or other Soviet famines. Our geography is irrelevant, they also had great lands, it’s the ideology that fucks things up. Natural disasters like "Carrington Event" solar storms can also fuck things up for us. So can volcano’s making "a year without winter". There are many causes. But assuming during these events that there are other people still alive, they will go full NK strict and demand anything they see you have.

      So think what you would need in NK during the famine to survive? Cans on a shelf? No. Easy to find by other people and won’t last. No you need supplies that will last and won’t be easy to find.

      I recommend pvc tubes in the ground stuffed with cornstarch in some tubes, shortening in some tubes, life straws aspirin and antibiotics in some tubes, tubes with microprint on farming and education. All sealed and burred in the ground. You could make them as backing for a retaining wall or raised garden instead of simply burying them.

      That way you could bury tons of cheap(right now) corn starch and it will last thousands of years. Then in your lifetime when the NK types are telling you to boil grass roots because there is no food, then you can still live. You don’t need to expect all your nutrients to come from your supplies, but you can easily secure calories and without even using any shelf space inside your home.

        would it be ok to bury food grade buckets? filled with a few months worth of rice and SPAM etc? also some tents, tarpolin, water purifier, soap etc so you cn literally just bug out and camp in the area that you hid them. that way if someone raids your house, you have somewhere to go to. also a small fishing rod/hooks etc.

          This is a common thing people secretly do.

          Though obviously don’t expect rice to have it’s ideal shelf life if your seal’s are less then perfect. Which is why I recommend a much simpler stable carbohydrate like common starch and well sealed PVC. PVC sucks to break or hacksaw the seals, but who cares? You’re only going to break that shit out when you have no choice. Overall though, I don’t recommend rice, you’ll likely fuck it up. Starch is stable, sugar is table, oils are semi-stable, organics like rice may be ok a few years out, but you’ll have to put in some effort to go beyond that.

          no, food grade buckets are thin and they use gaskets as seals. Also, they are wide and shallow. Likely to crack or break when exposed to the elements more than a year. Good for personal use, but long term storage in a stash is bad. Thick quarter inch pvc with full plumbing cap sealed with sealant is what that anon would be talking about as a stash. Bucket stash would be just sticking a bucket out in a shed or something, or using for inside stores. You don’t want that in the dirt. Exception would be a large rain barrel, but fuck is that a lot of work without a backhoe.

          If you can find a secluded cave or abandoned basement, you could drop the buckets as stashes there just in the open space. But anything that looks like it might have something in it is likely to be searched even now. Making pvp tube stash superior even then. People are like roaches and are everywhere, even in places that looks like nobody has been there a century.

          And items like these can all be hidden in buckets. Though for tents, you can put the tent in a bucket and the poles or other tools outside the bucket. Bury it all and it will be there when you need it.

          Piece of advice though, get some tent size screening, it makes any area much nicer. Also make sure the equipment does what you expect.

          Side note, I see mention of seeds. Keep in mind people, many tests all the way back to the 1800’s have found seeds are surprisingly good at lasting when burred. So always consider a saving a batch of seeds along with supplies. Just look at how they weren’t letting people buy seeds during this pandemic. It’s good to have those ahead of time.

          As to your food-safe container question as the other anon said, don’t do it. If you can the best way is to make the container out of whatever you have that is sturdy and will survive and keep the contents safe. Inside this container you put food safe containers. You can make the outside container out of anything that won’t leak or crack under pressure.

      "sis just die with everyone else"
      humanity wont go extinct, but society will break down and there will be mass starvation. I’d rather have a pantry filled with months supply of food, which costs next to nothing to buy today (few hundred, can pick up a few cans per week) than just starve to death in 3 days, or fighting my way through mile long bread lines.
      basically, your dad is typical boomer tard with little critical thinking skills.
      The problem with boomers is they are so stuck in the worldview, and especially if he is your father, its very unlikely that he will change his opinion, because he once changed your nappies. its like an insecure pride. Not all boomer parents are like that, but it is the epitome of a boomer. My dad is like that. Wont budge on Israel, thinks they’re great resilient people and fuck the arabs. But White kiwis on the other hand dont deserve to live and here and should go back to England. Its infuriating, but he is absolutely convinced he is right, and smart even. and dismisses my well studied political analysis as "hate" or some shit. And hes not even that liberal. Imagine some Karen mother with the thick rimmed glasses, short hair and fish mouth. Thankfully my parents arent that cancerous, but still somewhat insufferable.

      TLDR: Prep a few months worth. No real skin off your back. Otherwise, enjoy starving to death with the other dumbasses.

      Glad a prep thread is up again. I intend to purchase a can sealer and store hard grains for making bread. Does anyone have experience with these? I could use a recommendation for them. The price varies wildly and while I don’t want to spend $1400 on one, I also want to buy something that won’t break. Also what is the best method for storing dry hard bulk grains? I am thinking of using a bunch of #10 cans and oxygen absorbers.

If you are ‘prepping’ and doing anything that requires using said preps, letting some moviestar tier wannabe at your back is pretty much suicide. It was bad enough before when you had the entire military logistical arm taking care of your basic needs and you knew everyone around you was somewhat trained.

      Boomers are stupid. Prepping is about being prepared for hard times. It’s not about surviving the freaking apocalypse. Maybe food gets a lot more expensive for a while. It would be nice to have a stocked pantry to help you make it through that without bankrupting yourself.

      Boomers can’t fathom real life happenings, everything has to be put in terms of blockbuster movies or ancient alien hypotheses.

        Most of you aren’t aware of the things I wrote because you don’t work in the industry and aren’t seeing what I have. And the media won’t mention it to you because they don’t want to create the Great Toilet Paper Buy-Up of 2020 and clear every grocery out within a few days.

        The powers that be WANT you to be unaware of how bonked things really are right now because they also want to "save" you from the problems they’re creating when shit really does hit the fan and riots are likely to break out.
        There’s always a slim chance the dying system will hold out for a while longer, but I’m not going to count on it. At least have basic necessities to get you through the worst if things go south, or, keep your cocksucker shut and deal with it if things end up a worst-case scenario.
        I didn’t panic in 2020 when they were talking about food shortages because 3/4 of what I posted above was NOT happening back then. But now it is. So consider this your warning, cap to reflect on as things get worse.

      A virus appeared last year that has a 99.5% survival rate and the grocery stores went empty and we continue to have supply chain issues. What about when a real disruptive agent appears, something that is 10 or 100 times worse. You dont need to break the bank to do some basic prep. Buy 200 lbs of beans and keep it in a dry container. Itll last forever. Beans, rice, sugar, salt, rubbing alcohol, pasta, oats, freeze dried fruits and vegetables… literally some of the cheapest stuff ypu can buy can last for decades. You could spend a thousand dollars and have a supply of beans, pasta, and whatever that would last for months or years.

      Your dad is smart. All prepping does is delay the inevitable. Once all good is exhausted, everyone dies. Its why keeping supply lines up and running is much better than stockpiling for the eventual end.

        USGI woobie, poncho liner to fill with leaves or needles (to insulate against bare earth when you sleep), water purification of some kind, water bladder, rations, firestarters (and backups), drop point high carbon bushcraft knife, caver’s headlamp, survivial radio for weather, fishing hooks and line, maybe some traps, basic first aid, tourniquet. Jacket, pants, backpack, extra socks– all weatherproofed. And that’s just if you want to survive warm weather long enough to cover some distance for a few days.

        Be in shape. The ideal weight of gear is 20-25% of body weight. You can train to carry more, but you need to train.

      prepping means
      a) throw away a lot of money by buying food that’ll rot away
      or
      b) make 80% of your diet canned food and add new canned food everytime you consume some of it, which ruins your health

      Prepping is woke af especially from an end of the world scenario. You SUBSTANTIALLY increase your chances of being the ancestor of the entire human race by prepping before a total global collapse, the numbers go up by such a mind boggling degree that prepping is pretty much the only viable genetic strategy available to the vast majority of the population. Pursuing any other strategy, especially at this point, seems utterly scrotebrained to me.

      Your dad is a loser and you are genetic trash; absolutely zero percent chance of being the father of mankind. At least my seed is actually on the fight.

      Some prepping tips that aren’t stupid:
      >have a chicken coop
      >have a large pond with tilapia
      >grow sweet potatos/yams
      >coal/woodburning distillery
      >own a lathe/endmill
      >live near river/lake with waterwheel/mill or have solar

      True prepping isn’t necessarily stockpiling, its slowly removing yourself from the grid NOW.

          honestly though, if you don’t have the means to purchase and setup an off-grid homestead now, the only other real option for someone is to stockpile ammo and be a looter.

      You dad not wrong prolly. I personally feel that really all you need is a 30 or 60 day supply in the form of one of those emergency mri type meal buckets they shill everywhere that keep for like 40 years and toss that in the closet and forget about it.

      Not for endtimes shit but like if theres a earthquake or some sort of majore infrastructure damage hindering travel thats where your food bucket would be a real life saver.

      The goverment will mobilize fast to distribute food to people like the national guard going by in a big truck and tossing crates like some pubg shit in peoples yards all that but that can still be a while.

      The reason you see all the autists here doing cans and crap that only good for a couple years is they can get those with foodstamps not the buckets and they bored shitless neet skizos on here.

      Tldr buy a food bucket and forget about it. Stock a lot of water if you can tho. Always have a fuckton of water.

      Without the powergrid, gas wouldn’t pump, salaries wouldn’t get paid, food wouldn’t get harvested (fuel no dispense), roads (stoplights and such) would become mayhem, and total information blackout for anyone except for radio operators.
