It's not even a very good list. Atomizers (for cooling) are going to disappear? Here, in Wisconsin, during a huge snowstorm? Nah.

Propane cylinder handles? Who on earth needs that? I just replaced a propane cylinder on my gas grill last night--the handle is built in.

Washboards? Where on earth can you even buy them? I guarantee you that in a crisis, washing clothes will not be on very many radars. Only later will they figure it out.

And Timber? Are they kidding? Maybe some plywood in anticipation of a hurricane, but timber?

And "Survival in a can"???? We're worried about that? C'mon.

And cotton neckerchiefs? Yeah, there'd be crowds of angry people beating each other up over those things.

While there are some good things in this list, it's a list that has been created by someone who hasn't given complete thought to it.

At least there is 100 items on the list that is a first.

Kev made a Master sticky http://www.survivalistboards.com/sho...d.php?t=135143 List of important threads this list is number 4.

My advice to you before you post is to read subject lines the newest 4-5 pages of each section then open the stickys and read as many of them as you can.

I am not saying “do not post” I am only saying read.

I read you list , and though it's busy and has some thought like every list there are holes .but most of us have a number of holes in our lists , we are not going o find them till it is too late .
Reading you list caues me to ponder my own ,so I appreciate the effort.
You might considder alternative fuels you can make on your own ,and develop skills that have barter capability for things you may want in the future like medicines .
Merely having stuff ,is not enough ,as you will learn. Having skills is the long term prep.

Welcome to the forum, CyberVyper. I haven't been here that long, but have noticed that many, many members (and not just newbies) post duplicate threads. Don't let it get you down.

I remember before a storm a few years ago I went by the grox store and there was not a drop of milk, potato, or slice of bread in the store. the perishables go first. plenty of canned stuff etc. smarter planners would have grabbed them instead of the half-gallon cow juice.
I saw a thread on another site and they were discussing power outages and what-if out 2-3 weeks and a guy wrote 'I guess I'd go out and get a generator'. right. you and a zillion other people. so much for 'in advance'.

I used to have a message board a few years ago. When someone would post a duplicate topic (which happened often), it would be merged with the older topic. That would bring an older topic back to the first page. No preaching was necessary.

I also belong to a sports forum that does the same thing (they have tens of thousands of members). That way, there aren't hundreds or thousands of posts that say "search is your friend" or "old topic"...

Does luggable Loo count as a portable toilet because I have two of those, but I have to stock up on plastic bags. It's pretty small. I hope I don't lose my balance someday and fall off

We are not trying to discourage anyone from posting we are trying to encourage them to read. With 83,594 members on this board there is a lot of knowledge out there.

I made an uptodate list of this on another forum and then got promptly band! LOL!

As far as I can remember this list was put together by someone from Serbia, so is ideal for their climate, but I should imagine it wouldn't be the same for somewhere like California etc.

Maybe the list needs to be in a sticky under newbie reads.

I don't see many people thinking of getting this from a store. And most people that would get that from a store, already has it.
