Read the novel One Second After for a realistic look at how society and supplies will fall apart in a crisis.

That list has been around a while.

I will start off by discussing the Generator.

We plan to place a generator onto our Natgas line to provide for the home automatically. But in the meantime we use a Generac which is pretty loud in the direction of the exhaust output for about 400+ feet. In winter that sound will carry farther.

With that in mind I am seeing about building a plan for a enclosure that will baffle the sound and still provide top access for fueling with a door on one end to roll it out and everything at least 4 inches up for air to reach engine from below. I still have much to learn.

Another thought is learning and researching Colonial Times all the way through to the early 1900's Once you absorb this information for yourself you may be able to develop a plan with which you can live fairly well using low technology such as hurricane lamps and so on.

I think looking at the items we use in daily life is the best list to add too. Those are the things we will need the most.

Good list to work off on. But, I find it most useful to think about categories of need (water, food, shelter, fire making, security, communications, etc.) and then build my 3 ways of providing each. This helps me keep things manageable and focused.

I agree that categorization is key to building your list. But, I'd need help in understanding what the real issues would likely be. It also might help to think in terms of a timetable--the immediate needs which might include power or some means of keeping warm enough to prevent your drinking water from freezing, vs your needs when the infrastructure is completely down for many months. That is, nothing to buy and no place to buy it, no communications of any kind other than public broadcasting services, and no means of transportation other than on foot or bicycle.

Suburban dwellers such as myself, in the dead of a very cold winter with no gas or electricity, would be in a world rather unknown. Day to day issues we take for granted such as disposal of human waste (as an example) could be real issues after a relatively short time. Flu, severe intestinal distress, dehydration etc., with no medical attention available puts most of us in a worrisome and unusual state.

I don't think shaving would be on my list of concerns.

One thing I don't see (unless I read over it) is prescription medicines. This could be a MUST HAVE item for some people.
