How about hoarding knowledge? Learn survival skills, like how to eat and treat illness and injury using what's available in nature. How to build shelter and use solar power. How to protect the real estate you have, and how to work together instead of against eachother. We always keep both pantries stocked with dry and canned goods, along with water and other bottled drinks, and first aid supplies and basic meds. I have horses and I know how to do basic vet care and trim their hooves. If we don't have vehicles, I can get around. I taught my daughter the same skills. The gems and gold may have usefulness if one needs to trade them for something, but there is truth to the words "knowledge is power".
I would of agreed with the gold/silver part except that's for a world with an economy that can use precious metals. INSTEAD, your currency is supplies which include (but not limited to) medical supplies, batteries, generators, gas, AMMO, etc. What the hell good is a gun if you can't shoot it?!
"Can you imagine a world where Midtown Manhattan real estate is common and easy to come by? And, if so, do you really want to live in that world?"
Yes, I can imagine it. A dirty bomb attack, a genetically engineered virus, etc, etc.
And the will to live is pretty strong. Once you get close to starvation, nature kicks in. I guess the author is just going to lay down and die, though.
Glenn Beck's seeds are a sham. Untrustworthy sources, low germination, lower fertility, etc.
The envelopes you get at the hardward store are probably shoddy too. There are a few trusted names out there for highest quality seed that is not hybridized or genetically modified organisms (GMO = bad)
go for all your non-GMO seeds and other survival info. I've been growing them at home for years and have a preserved stockpile staying cool in my bugout location.
They also have water filtration in bug-out supply kits, potassium iodate (iodide) for protection from nuclear fallout and radiation, books on how to live off the land, etc.
a true MUST HAVE resource!
