    I have a way to get light. I have blankets. I have at least some food in the pantry.

    Scrounging up all that other stuff will give me something to do.

    We save our poop in the outhouse and spread it on our garden.

    It's no laughing matter tho. We probably will go bust at some point. A sense of humor will pull us through starvation.

    Missing from my survivalist list is the outhouse. lol

    Seriously, IF things get really bad.... it will depend on luck. That's why I try to keep 'karma' on my side.

    Oh......Hello Jen


    Backpack, tent, food, handgun, shotgun. Kill food, drink from clear stream fed from a hillside.

    Campfire.

    Away from the blackout -----> campfire keeps me company.

    An EMP is possible,.but a small possibility I believe.

    I survived a blackout that lasted several days a couple years ago. We still have our own power plant in this small town for back up if the outside supply line goes down (the power plant used to supply all power until sometime in the 1980s).

    Anyway the dumb(next word starts with F) we have as city manager failed to maintain the generators so when a blizzard took out poles and lines coming into the community we were living in the dark ages for a few days.

    I survived. To recharge the batteries for my e-cig I would plug the charger into the cigarette lighter of a vehicle. Oil lanterns and flashlights for light.

    Okay so the internet was down, well I lived the first few decades of my life without the internet.
