You will need more than just food and water when the grid goes down.
Many people know what they need to survive a doomsday scenario. They stock high-calorie foods and clean water, they find their own sources of power and heat, and they prepare to defend themselves, if need be. With all they have stored, they have the ability to survive for days, even months at a time.
You may think you have finished preparing once you have accumulated these basic necessities, but there is always more that can be done. In The Pocket Guide to Prepping Supplies, Patty Hahne offers up two hundred and thirty-five oft-forgotten items that may prove to be indispensable for surviving the apocalypseshould it happen. From the mundane, like quality shelving and needle and thread, to more specialized tools, such as a closet auger and jumper cables, Hahne describes how each one can prove to be a vital addition to the prepper’s cache. You may be surprised to see what common household items can do when used creatively, and Hahne is here to help inspire you.
Presented in a compact design, The Pocket Guide to Prepping Supplies is an important addition to any prepper’s book collection, one that can be carried in a purse or pocket, stored in the car, or slipped into that carefully prepared bug-out bag.
