Watching the events in NO, and remembering the blackout in Detroit a few years ago. I'm wondering how many hear have some kind of survival supplies. I keep A two week supply of food and 10 gallons of water, haven't sprung for the generator. Also being a backpacker/outdoors type I have all kinds of camping gear and outdoor ready clothing. Also I have a few firearms and sufficient ammo. I actually started storing up stuff for Y2k, which I viewed with skepticism, But I figured the freeze dried food I could use backpacking too. NO is beginning to look like a bad post apocalypse movie and my prayers are with them, the situation is unprecedented for any large modern city as far as I can remember and reminds me somewhat of the LA riots. I'm not asking for political opinions or Gun control philosophies. But I remember the Zombie preparation thread, this is close to the real thing. Your thoughts?
