I had prepped the "safe-house" up in the hills in a sparsely populated region.
I have the weapons to fit out a defensive line in the community.
I have the heirloom seeds and food preservation skills.
I have tons, literally, of barter items.
PM's ? Of course.

What I am not prepped for, or have the desire to survive, is slow internal cooking from Radhaz.

What a sad and helpless feeling.

I hope we ALL get through this one.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.

It's a whack upside the head from left field isn't it Bohica? sad2.gif not really something I am prepared for or want to survive either.

You know, this should be a survival thread Bohica, TEOTWAWKI did not quite come in the form from which we all suspected it would. Admittedly everyone has been caught off guard by this.


Pretty good survival info, the strange thing is one can find plenty of survival manuals addressing post nuclear war.

I've yet to find anything written specifically addressing this particular scenario, but I'm thinking nuclear survival guides in general may be as close as it comes.

What to do if nuclear disaster is imminent

Awww jeez, reading the first link? I'm thinking I prepped for no water pumps, have 2 wells, an artesian and a spill off well that I draw water from for the house,but the spill off well would be contaminated gaah.gif Like Bohica said, haven't prepped for this shit.

Believe it or not just the titles of these PDF's are an upbeat influence.

Maybe because I'm so sad right now.

When this disaster happened, (almost 3 weeks ago), I supplemented my pantry with powdered and condensed milk, kelp pills, etc.

I haven't eaten canned food in three decades, but I think I will be soon.

The day this happened, the crocus came out of the ground.
My Daffodils are about to flower, it will be warm soon, and it just seems so surreal.

The scary part is that no-one around me seems to be aware of the magnitude of this disaster.
I told people at work some of the updates the msm have hidden in their paltry coverage, and four days later they say : "hey, you were right".

The sad thing is that even when I know it's time to get out of dodge, there will be nowhere safe to go to.

Hard to tell Yankees, hope to god it wasn't much.

Notice how they claim it's nothing ie You get more from the sun, bricks, granite, etc than this, however they don't really qualify it for what it is.

Certainly normal background radiation is well tolerated by all living things, but this should not be the subject.

Gamma rays, Caesium-137, Plutonium not to mention Neutron bursts and god knows what else is not found in normal background radiation, and it doesn't take a PHD in nuclear science to see what the outcome was on Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Iraq.

This following missive is not intended as a survival guide

it is the rationale of an insane retired Hippie.

From Birth, i have one end destiny, my demise.

I shall live only that length of TIME, as it takes me to reach my demise,,,
and not a moment longer.

In between birth and death, i shall experience life

the last experience of that Life, is the end of that life.

Many options to the end of life.

no option as to whether it will end, that is a certain, it will indeed end.

I will, that i shall not dwell on that end, for that is NOT a quality experience of life.

I further WILL, the acceptance of the unavoidable, and set that aside, til the time arrives.

If conditions dictate, that further experience in that life, is devoid of quality of a GOOD healthy life, independent, self reliant, mobile, active in all manner of mobility and quality
Then , my logic understands, that my time between birth and death, has reached
the time to disconnect and leave this world to it's own devices.

If, a condition such as radiation poisoning arrises, and i cannot defend against it's deadly effects,,,

Then again, logic states, that i accept that condition, set my mind at ease, fend off desperation, and allow for the end to take it's course.

I can fear death,,,,
But i suppose, i much more fear how it shall come.

i cannot avoid death
i can however choose how it shall come.

Throwing up my guts on the carpet for ten days, and then dropping dead like a rock,,,

is not a choice i shall allow.

Lets hope to god these are not choices any of us are going to have to make in the near future.

Acute radiation syndrome would be a fucking horrible way to go, and brings up questions such as how and why do you bother to even treat it if your environment is contaminated? Besides, realistically there are not the food, water and medical supplies to deal with this on a widespread basis.

I surmise we can gauge the real threat here if we keep an eye open and look for signs that 'leaders' are beginning to disappear.

Not a pretty read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acute_radia...te_note-29
