The following items listed are items you will need to get for your survival. If you are unable to get all of the items, get what you can and try to get the main items most important for survival. Most of the items can be found at your local stores, super centers, camping stores, outdoors stores, survival stores, army / navy surplus stores. But we do suggest you try finding most of the items on E-Bay, Craig's List, Amazon, discount stores and websites as well as wholesale stores and websites. Doing this will save you money.
Now you may be asking yourself "Ok, where is the catch? Who and where am I supposed to send money to for my survival?" There is no catch, we dont ask anyone to send any money what-so-ever! We only ask that you purchase the items yourself and we supply you with a safe zone location near you by doing a geographical search for you for FREE! Life shouldn't have a price put on it and we just want to make sure as many people survive the coming disasters as possible.
If you choose to make a donation to us, please let me know in a personal message on our Members Page and I will provide you with the information you need. But I will say that even though donations (money, gift cards, or items) are not required, they can still help those who are unable to get specific items and we can supply you with a copy of the receipt for proof of purchased items if needed.
Now, here is a list of the items you will need for your survival, please print out at least 3 copies of each page. One set to keep on hand, one set to put in an easy to remember place in your home and one set for your car. Use the list as both a shopping guide and a check list to make sure you have the items. If you have any questions about any of the items, please ask, because there are some items that you may wonder why you would need them. I assure you that each item has a specific purpose. Such as the shoe polish for example. Why shoe polish for survival? Well it can be used for a good campfire starter and the odor helps keep away bugs and animals from your campsite. And salt can also be used as a form of tooth-paste when a small amount is wet.
We are proud to present a brand new smaller list of items which is located below our original list. The new list is for those who may not be able to get everything mentioned in the original list, but will still contain the absolutely must have items for your survival.
Note that more items could be added to the list at a later time, so check this page often for updated items.
For those of you who have very little money, we suggest going to yard sales, flea markets, dollar stores, wholesale companies, etc. to find the items listed below. This will help you save money and even get more items on the list.
Now some of the items that are marked with a "*" beside of it means to buy a large quantity of that specific item. Any items marked with a "^" beside of it means to buy 1 of that item for each person coming with you. Also note that there are some items that you will need to get 3 to 5 of, just depending on how many will be with you and how much you may think you will need.
For those who may have children or babies still in diapers, we suggest that you buy the powdered formulas, foods that you can add water to (such as flavored oatmeal), and cloth diapers. Check for any possible baby supplies that you will need alot of and get as much as possible. You will want your baby to have everything they will need for their survival as well. Make sure that any foods you buy for them has a long shelf life, because you will be at your/our safe zone for a long time. Also, buy up powdered juices that you add water to, this will also help keep them hydrated. Make sure you also stock up on several large bottles of children's vitimins (we find that many children like the gummy vitimins).
We hope this info helps!

TIP #1 :
Items 118 through 122 can be used in combination for extra lighting. Directions are as follows :
Take 1 bowl 6 to 8 inches wide and at least 3 to 5 inches deep or more. Put 1 and a half handfulls of grapes into the bowl and mash them up to get the juices out, leave the mashed grapes and juice in the bowl. Next, take 1 potato and cut off about an inch of it from either end, take the larger part of the potato and place it into the bowl with the end you cut laying flat in the juice. Let the potato soak for 5 to 10 minutes, leave the potato in the bowl. Then take an electrical wire (length depends on where you want the light) and shave off at least an inch from one end and at least 6 to 10 inches on the other end so the wires are showing, take one end of the wire and stick it into the top of the potato, make sure all of the exposed wire goes in. Next, take the other end of the wire and attatch it to the base of the bulb using electrical tape and wrap the remaining wire around the base of the bulb. LET THERE BE LIGHT!
TIP # 2 :
Take as many empty, uncrushed cans (soda), a few spools of fishing line, and some small pebbles or small metal balls that will fit into the cans. Pull the tab of each can into an upright position (do not pull the tab off), place a few small pebbles or metal balls into each can. Then take the fishing line and run it through the opening of the tab on each can and spread the cans evenly apart of about 1 to 1 and a half feet from each other. Next, drive a piece of wood into the ground (1 piece every 5 feet) around your campsite. Now attatch your line of cans between each pole no higher than 2 feet from the ground and do this all the way around your campsite. INSTANT ALARM SYSTEM!
TIP # 3 : The shoe polish has 2 uses. 1 is to use to help start your campfire and 2, the odor from the shoe polish can help keep animals and bugs away from your campsite.
TIP # 4 : When you purchase a tent, make sure the doorway zips completely without any openings at the bottom. Always zip the doorway closed after entering and exiting your tent to help keep out bugs and snakes.
TIP # 5 : Always keep your food items sealed tightly in large storage containers to keep bugs and animals from getting into it.
TIP # 6 : If you have a large jug of water, you can place a camping lamp under it (on top if its a small camping lamp), the water in the jug will reflect the light in various directions giving more light to your camping area. Make sure you do not leave the light on throughout the night and check to make sure the bottom of the jug does not get to hot.
TIP # 7 : This one is very important. Try to stay hidden and out of site especially from what you may think are rescuers. People dressed in military or FEMA uniforms will be searching for survivors,...... but not to help them. Those who appear to have prepared themselves for the disasters will be taken to a detention camp where they will be questioned and identified, then reconditioned or terminated depending on the person's "threat level". People like me for example will go straight past the Red Zone in the camps for termination. So I do suggest that if you are found, do not say that you know me or got information from me. Tell them that you watched some movies about 2012 and noticed the disasters were starting to look like what you had seen in the movies and decided to pack some supplies and head for high ground just in case. That way you will most likey be put into either the Green Zone or Orange Zone and will remain safe.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE ARE SUGGESTED ITEMS TO PACK IN CASE YOU HAVE TO MAKE A FAST GETAWAY FROM YOUR HOME AND DO NOT HAVE TIME TO PACK ALL OF YOUR SURVIVAL ITEMS INTO YOUR VEHICLE.
1. An average to large camping backpack per adult.
Note : Children can carry a small backpack with a small amount of weight. Another adult will need to carry the extra supply weight either in their pack or a duffle bag.
2. An emergency kit (add 1 extra kit for every 4th person in your family. Example : 3 people = 1 emergency kit. 9 people = 3 emergency kits.)
3. Military food packs / dried foods such as crackers; dry cereal; trail mix; dried fruits; oatmeal waffers; small jar of peanut butter; peanuts; any type of dry foods. Canned foods are good to have as well. Make sure you pack enough to last for 1 to 2 weeks, divide the food weight amoung each adult, another good idea is to pack some chips as a snack for children. If rationed correctly, children will have 3 meals per day and adults can get by on 2 meals per day, small portioned snacks can be used at least 2 to 3 times per day.
4. Plastic forks, spoons and knives for eating. Pack enough to last up to 2 weeks, for each meal per day per person. Or to save room in your pack, use 1 set of utencils for each meal per day and just clean the set after each use.
5. Plastic plates as they are best because they can be cleaned and reused. Make sure you pack enough for each person to last up to 2 weeks.
6. Plastic cups or even plastic bottles for drinking water. Make sure you pack enough for each person to last up to 2 weeks. FEMA will not help you.
7. Cooking supplies. You will need something to cook some of your foods in, so pack a pot; pan and cooking utencils (camping cookware is best to use).
8. A flint and striker for starting a campfire. This is best as it will last longer than matches and will still work even if it gets wet.
9. Box matches for starting campfires as an alternative to the flint and striker.
10. A camping grill for cooking and boiling water.
11. A small tinder box of wood chips to help start a campfire.
12. A tent large enough to fit at least up 6 people with extra room for your supplies. A second tent or larger tent may be needed if you have more than six people in your family.
13. A sleeping bag for each person in your family. You can buy child sized sleeping bags if you have children.
14. An all purpose weather tarp. This will also help to keep rain or snow from leaking into your tent.
15. A shovel. Multiple purposes such as to use to throw dirt onto a campfire to help put it out; digging a latrine (hole for bathroom use); digging a water trench so your campsite does not get flooded in a heavy rain. (Tip : Make sure you run the trench towards a hillside leading down).
16. A small hand saw for cutting branches from trees for firewood and other usefull purposes.
17. A small mallet fore hammering your tent stakes into the ground. Can be used for other purposes if needed.
18. A small axe for chopping wood.
19. A hunting knife for various purposes.
20. Trash bags. To keep your area clean, remember not to litter! Litter can attract unwanted animals to your camp! So bag it up and dispose of it properly! If you have to, put it in the trunk of your vehicle or dig a deep hole.
21. Long sturdy rope for multiple use.
22. A good survival blanket will keep you good and warm in cold weather.
23. A survival kit, even though this is what you are creating, a small version with some helpful items are in them that may be needed.
24. Medications. This is a must if you or persons in your family have to take daily medications. So make sure all needed medications are packed for those who will need them.
25. An emergency radio, both battery opperated and crank opperated versions are suggested. Check for what the station channel for the area you will be in so you can have it preset to it before you leave.
26. A map of the area you will be going to so you can familiarize yourself to it.
27. A compass. Always know which direction you are going will help even more-so when used with the map.
28. A GPS device would come in very handy if you choose this simple method of finding your way. However this device may be useless if an X Class flare knocks out communications and power.
29. A signal light to use to signal helicopters at night for a rescue if needed. But make sure your emergency would require medical help, otherwise do not use.
30. A signal mirror kit for signaling aircraft during the day for rescue if needed.
31. A flashlight with extra batteries. You dont want to be stumbling around in the dark.
32. A camping lamp. Some people (including children) need a light source to be on constantly throughout the night.
33. Books. You nad your family will need something to occupy yourselves to keep from being bored.
34. Magazines are also a good source of reading material to help with boredom.
35. Board games for the children and whole family are suggested to take along.
36. A selected few toys for the children to help keep them busy and from getting bored.
37. If your child or children have a favorite stuffed animal or toy, make sure you pack it with them so it will help calm their fears and releive some stress they may have from the ordeal.
38. Crafts for men; women; teens and children. This will occupy time as well.
39. The most important item is 1 gallon of water per person per day for 1 to 2 weeks. Yes, that many gallons will be hard to carry, but they are needed for survival.
40. The final item on your list should include vitamins for everyone in your family including childrens vitamins. Everyone must have their daily vitamins to keep up their health for survival.
Now before you start thinking that I am trying to scam any of you into something that you wont benifit from, hear me out. I am not a rich man and do not have the funds for the land nor the shelter to be built. This is where you come in, I DO NOT WANT YOU TO SEND ME ANY MONEY for this. Not to mention, there may not be any time to obtain the land and have the shelter built since the disasters are increasing in both number and strength. So instead of saving up money for the land and shelter, we want you to take a close look at the Items Needed above. Please make a copy of each page of items listed there, then you will need to obtain those items as soon as possible. You may find the items at your local stores, EBay, Craigs List, Survival stores, Army / Navy surplus stores and possibly even Wholesale stores or websites. I will be posting links to these types of websites for you to look over and possibly find some items from the list, I do suggest you compare prices of the websites and stores, because you may find the same item for a lower price elsewhere. If you find an item not on the list that you think may be useful to others, please post that info on our Forums Page.
Now, for those who may wish to join us at our Safe Zone, located on a mountain almost 5,000 feet above sea level in Virginia, please let me know on either our Blog page or our Forums page, just add a comment to the one marked as "Coming With Us?", using your member name and state "YES!" if you wish to join us. As of today, there will be 23 + more people coming with us to the Safe Zone. Don't be among those who will say "I was told it was coming and chose to do nothing about it and now it really is happening! Where do I go? Where can I take my family to be safe? What can I do?" I have an answer to this question now and it is this,... There is nothing you can do, nowhere you can go, no place for your family to be safe and no way to survive. Sure, in the early disasters there may be some camps or sites set up by the Red Cross or FEMA, but in the end they will be wiped out as well. Your best chance at survival would be in an underground shelter or at a Safe Zone.
Now this offer is not restricted to just those who live in Tennessee, anyone from anywhere is welcome to join us once the time comes for relocation to the Safe Zone. I know that many of you may have to relocate for this, but it will be worth it, because in the end you can't put a price on your or your family's life. Now if you live in another state or country and possibly cant afford to travel to the Safe Zone in Virginia, USA, or may not have time to travel the distance and would like to know of another possible Safe Zone in your area, please let me know on our Blog page in a comment and I will contact you via Email and you can provide the information we need to find a Safe Zone for you and your family to survive. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas that may be useful, or if you need more information and would like to see it here, please let me know. AND PLEASE PASS THIS INFO TO OTHERS!
