    Earth quakes, weather, etc can create situations where you’re stuck with no access to utilities or stores.

    If you suddenly lost power, water and gas and had to stay put in your home (and property) how long could you last before you would have to have outside help?

    Major change in what you do about doing things but if yo stop and think what’s important you can do without a whole bunch of stuff . ;) A hunter and gatherer might be better off at first thn comes the farming. But first you got get through the change. :-S

    When you say “Stay put in your home”… does that mean you can go out to a nearby river for water or go out to hunt?

    As long as i could get to a local river and do a bit of hunting i think i would be ok for quite a while.

    I’d assume you’d need to stay put a couple of weeks in a worst case situation. New Orleans was pretty dangerous after Katrina. Imagine what LA could be like after a major earthquake if aid didn’t arrive quickly.

    Depends on when it happened……..in the winter we have the means to keep our food frozen, and with gas, we have the means to keep warm, cook, and such……in the summer, the food would spoil, even though we don’t need to have as much in the way of heat [=}=]

    ;) Heck if I ran out of ammo, I could go to the basement and load more.

    I think I would be good for a while. Have some food and water. Also have my built on winter coat. :D I would waste away to nothing for a long long time. :whistle
