Plain non lubricated condoms are useful for many things, including putting in a sock to carry water, putting over the end of a rifle or shotgun for rain and water operations.

Along with # 66. Carbon Monoxide Alarm (battery powered) lets not forget canaries. These caged little wonders were used for years in the coal mines of my old country to warn the miners of toxic levels of CO2. if the canary died it was time to get out!
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Ya know, I was thinking I like those little birds, who about an alternative in the modern day and age!


Used Senators, or current Politicians? Stand them in the corner or put them in the mine, when they die, leave and get another one!
Much nicer than killing little yellow birds who actually bring happiness to people with their songs, use the useless self entitled relics of misuse of power for a real purpose.


just my opinion of course and not the opinion of the forum!

Going trough the list I can safely say that most of the stuff that was missing fast from shelf  that most of the people are living from day to day. If you don't have at least 60% of the stuff  on your shelf You are not ready for anything and you are not even close to be self sufficient and independent.

I agree with Henry. There are some things on that list I will never have and some other things that are not on the list. I am more of a homesteader than a prepper, so my lists are made up of things that allow me to make some things if I find I have to do without some things.
