Hello guys and gals! Hope everyone is doing great! The point of this posting today is to get some ideas of what I need to buy to further my prepping stockpiles.

I am on deployment so I am making tax free money yayyy! So I will have a little extra to throw to my supplies. My problem is that I am a younger guy, and I will admit this....am fascinated by "cool" gear. Which this could describe us all, but I am just stating my problem. I need good solid ideas of items, be they common or uncommon, that I can order to add to my limited supplies.

Just for information purposes, I have enough ammo so need for that, BUT I will take any and all advice into consideration! Thank you in advance!

Food; lots and lots of food. MRE's; freeze dried; canned goods. Check out emergency essential.com. They are pretty good in my own opinion. Be safe out there and thank you for what you do. God Bless you and yours as well.

Water filter - like a berkey
mylar bags and oxygen absorbers
simple things like led lights and an emergency radio
Stove, like a small propane stove
Some #10 cans of food essentials

Gunslinger ll found here -----> http://www.eberlestock.com/G2%20Gunslinger%20II.htm

pricey but worth it. Bought mine on deployment and was more than thrilled when I got home. Also, if you can, get your hands on that roll of 550. Most supply guys guard it better than their nuts but if you can.....

For food: Store what you eat, eat what you store.

Don't get too hung up on gear.

Give firearms some thought so you can keep what you've got.

First, thank you for your service. Your "tax free" deployment pay is one of the few uses of my taxes I've seen lately that I can feel totally comfortable supporting.

Second, congratulations for not taking your "tax free money" and spending it on the down payment for the most tricked-out vehicle you could find.

Since you are in the "cool-gear" stage of life and on deployment, there are lots of things you can do/get now that will help you. I'm thinking of relatively small items because of getting them back stateside. Water filters, emergency radio (weather, different bands, elec/battery/solar/windup type), alternative lighting methods, and the most useful - information. Right now when you have free time and can get on the internet you can learn all kinds of things that can help you down the road. Learn about something new: gardening, sprouting, ham radio, first aid, raising chickens... Anything you learn is building a gold mine in your brain.

If there is a place you have have stuff shipped safely to be stored, food is a good idea right now. It's only going to get more expensive but the key beyond a few cans of freeze-dried food is if you presently have a place it can be sent to where it would stay safe. If not, save some of your money and the third day after you are back stateside go food shopping (you can use the list you made while on deployment - see information gathering notes above.) I know you can't go shopping any earlier than the third day since you will have laundry to do and a cheeseburger to scarf down.

Good luck and stay safe!

Default Gamma Lids

Buy a few Gamma Lids and some food grade buckets. They are the bomb for storing food long term and just about anything else you want sealed up and completely waterproof. Great for storage for the staples such as grain, salt, sugar, etc.

Make sure you have "regular" SHTF covered before you even think about TEOTWAWTI. Some things are pretty universal, like the car breaking down/flat tire, grease fire, minor repairs around the house, getting sick/hurt, pet(s) getting sick/hurt, electricity or water out for a few to 24 hours, etc. Other "regular" SHTF depends on where you are. Where I am, I need to be ready for tornadoes, regular winter crap, blizzards, ice storms, falling trees, power, water, and/or sewer out for a few days, -50, haz mat spill on the highway or railroad, carjacking/other violent crime, and burglary. I do not need to worry about hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, broken dams, stampeding bison, etc.

Store what you eat and eat what you store. Generally FIFO, but go by expiration dates, not the date you bought it. Don't do any LTS until you have at least a year of rotating "regular" food. Hit the commissary case lot sales... use coupons...

If you get a rodent, insect, water, mold/mildew, issue, fix it immediately. This kind of problem will go from bad to horrible really fast.

Look at the water stickies in the food forum. IAmZeke has graciously shared a lot of expertise.

Make sure you keep up with all the administrative and legal preparing the military makes you do. Keep an electronic copy of everything at your house, someplace else, and in the cloud (I'm partial to Carbonite, but there are many back-up and storage systems/companies). USB are great, but they do go bad...

The VA mortgage program is great... No PMI or down payment.

Read and learn before spending. SB has a wealth of information that will save you time and $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Wait until you get home to buy most of your stuff to prevent loss, damage, theft, confiscation, or loss of OPSEC

Thanks for your service.

Buy property, as far from a city as you can manage. Its hard to get very serious about anything else until you have a suitable place to prep in. Barring that, get a five ton military truck and start filling it up.

Field kit...
first up I'd do up some clothing so you are stocked up on that , plus US kit is pretty good clothing and lasts a long time. Extra under layers and socks for sure. a couple extra belts, and a couple extra pairs of boots.

----
Things like the sawyers minis are selling for like $20 or so.

Again food water shelter.

One thing I've considered getting for a while is a desalinator/water purfier so something that will do both desalination and purification

If you are going to be on deployments then the length of food storage starts to matter. (Also pest free storage containers) A couple rain barrels filled with dried food will cover you .. you just got to remember that if you stage properly you can convert dried food into longer term storage canned foods. Seeding foods loose their germination capability after a given period of time.

Things like dried corn, red wheat kernals, lentils beans (can be used for making sprouts, or as seed in a pinch) sunflower seeds, you might want to look at your local area for what will be growable if you loose heat cooling.


a stone hand grinding mill, or coffee grinder


I really like the water jerrycans but any bottles even old pop bottles will do.

Some shelving or wood working tools to make your own shelving might be a good useful carpentry project. If you figure 1 1/2 foot x 1/2 area on the wall is 1 day of survival storage for water and food for that day, if you can fill a 10' by 8' you have maybe a years worth of bare bones survival, probably closer to 6 months, if you can fill a wall shelf maybe 8" in depth or so you should have a good food and water start.


You probably have field kit issues already like tarp/poncho etc.. some extra clothing.


Being able to grind grains is very useful.

Dehydrators can be useful too.


Some wire for snares might be useful.


Just think to yourself, what will I want to have 6 months from now if I can't get it in 6 months.






If you have any prepping hobbies you might want to get items specific to those hobbies.


Wonder if the guy made it back from Stan.

While the "cool stuff" is fun, it's far more important to have the basics covered first (water, food, shelter, warmth.) Once you have the basics covered, be sure you have a way to replenish any supplies that will be used...learn how to GROW food, or have the means to barter/trade for it; a way to obtain, store, and purify water; etc. When the basics and re-supply are covered, consider your financial preps...have enough saved initially to cover emergency expenses, and gradually build up until you can cover at least a couple of months' expenses in case of paycheck interruptions.

It's not glamorous, and seems pretty boring, but those things can really save your bacon when ties get tough. We've been through unexpected job losses,(BOTH of us at the same time, due to the government "sequester" a few years ago, and me again last year due to a contract lapse) and having those preps (stored food; a garden and poultry/livestock to replenish that food; and financial preps/savings to meet expenses) is what kept things together for us.

As a veteran of the USN let me say "Thank You" to both you and your family. I know your family is with you when you are deployed as well. Maybe not physically, but...

I would suggest looking at homesteading if possible. Our ancestors managed to survive before Thomas Edison created something that enveloped into what we now call the electrical grid. It seems that today electricity is required for everything.

Learn how to live without it.

And remember, cool stuff is only cool as long as it is useful.
