Prepper Gear For The Home When The Modern World Switches Off

Original Article:



For a lot of us, we are heavily dependant on systems in place to be sure that we have our food in stores, clean tap water, grid power and other conveniences that we’ve come to take granted in our everyday lives. But what happens when we lose those things, say for instance in a natural disaster?

What do we do when the modern world switches off? And what prepper gear should we stock to keep those modern comforts?

This idea alone was the reason I started prepping in the first place, it was my experience in a flood that made me realize how much I have taken for granted the systems that are controlled by so many others, from transport industries with food and fuel, to power plant operations and clean water. All of this is daily life norms, but when they are switched off, it’s something I was never prepared to deal with.

In my humble beginnings as a prepper, I started off a very small list of prepper gear, with a simple emergency kit of three-days worth of water, food, candles, batteries, flashlight, toilet paper and a radio. Easy right? But then I digressed in other methods of preparedness such as:

ReadyNutrition Readers, there have been a tremendous number of world happenings that has placed all of us in a precarious situation.  The past several months have seen successive tests of missiles, with a nuclear test as well (Friday 9/9/16) by North Korea.  Iran and North Korea have been exchanging missile technology, supplemented by the Russians with technical advisors and materials.  China, too, has been developing their SLBM (Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile) weaponry at a breakneck pace.  

The military doctrine of both North Korea and Iran call for a first-strike against the continental United States using an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) generating warhead.  I wish to pen the caveat that I have been stating in my articles repeatedly for quite some time, now, hoping they will be taken into consideration:

Crisis Communication Advice - Ditch the cell phone (or not?)

Not very long ago (hardly a handful or two of years back) our communicational availability was a quarter (or less) of what it now is. If you could not reach John Joe on his kitchen phone and he didn’t come to the door when you knocked, well, you just figured he wasn’t home. Boy how times have really changed and nowdays it seems that communication is easier than ever.


I have been “off-the-grid” for quite some time now (absolutely no use of a personal cell phone, is essentially what I mean by this), and the biggest, most common question I get is “how can you live without one?”.

How To Open A Can Without a Can Opener

One of the scenes or opportunities to learn something from American Blackout was the scene where the Yuppie guy was trying to open a can of peaches that he apparently had stolen. I guess the Yuppies didn’t have a can opener in their fancy apartment so the guy had to use his own smarts to open the can himself. This is the same can he bashed over the head of a guy who was trying to steal it from him to feed his family. Funny how this man was so desperate for food that he beat someone to death, but the can of peaches kicked his butt.
