    Good lord I don't need no stinken electronics if turds break the fan blades. I don't need a prepper high rise with like minded nutcases.

    Did my grandparents wrap their cell phones and tablets in prep for emp blah blah blah? No they didn't. Do I ? Hell no. People are such wimps today that they worry about elctronics ha!

    To tell ya the truth I dont worry about any of it. When its my time its my time the good lord will decide that.
    I wrap some of my electronics. My small solar panels, USB battery chargers, a few LED camping lamps, my night vision and all scopes with electronics get protected. I see my totalitarian government clamping down hard via the order out of chaos method. I truly believe this government would nuke its own citizens and say the boogeyman of the day did it. This government, who murders abroad without reservation or pause, will have no problems doing the same here. I am preparing to be able to defend myself from all enemies foreign and domestic. Part of that is owning the night. While I might not be able to do that against the government, I want to be able to get the odds as even as possible.

    I just want to add that my protection against this was cheap. I paid about $20 for a large old school metal trash can from Home Depot. I also bought an army surplus dry bag. Both were incredibly cheap. I place the non-conductive dry inside the garbage can, put the items I want to protect inside the bag, make sure the nothing is touching the garbage besides the dry bag, seal the bag up, and I cover the trash can. It is simple and cheap. I also see no real reason not to do it.

    I'm talking about those who live near, or in the middle of, 1,000+ population and up and think they will survive.

    I wasn't born yet during the Depression - but my Aunt lived through it, in a city, and she spoke of the gardens in their (and everybody's) back yards, and how they got by. People today are the farthest from being self-sufficient - not only to feed themselves but in mentality too. Expecting rescue, expecting others to provide. Believing their neighbors will feed them, or wont steal their food. Not gonna happen.

    But the really astonishing thing is they think well, if a nuke or EMP hits far enough away, we'll be okay here in our city...WRONG! Before the 'cloud' even dissipates, everything will stop. There will be no more shipments of food from one part of the country to another; I don't need to explain why that is.

    I get that not everyone can move out of population centers. What I don't get is why they think they'll survive with, you know, a little food & guns on hand. Delusional. Clueless.
    I live in city of about 50k. I am a few blocks (about twelve) from being outside of my city and in the country. I have enough food to last a couple weeks. My main plan is to bug out even if I have to huff it on foot. Unfortunately, my bug out location is not designed for year round habitation without being there all the time (freezing pipes would suck in winter), and my job prevents me from doing living there for 24 hours at a time. If there is a nuclear explosion near me, whatever happens will happen.
