For those that care I'm going to alert you with some common knowledge in the prepper community and what to watch out for, and how you know when shit actually does HTF with some basic tips.
1). When the power goes down and you cannot get an internet signal or cell phone connection this is likely the very first indication of a SHTF scenario. So make sure you have a way to, at minimum, to light up the area you decide to dedicate as your safe haven. This can easily be done with some LED strip lights, a 400 watt power inverter and 12V battery and you may want a solar trickle charger for charging that 12V. Make sure you have at least a couple 12V batteries so when one runs out of energy you can charge it while using the other one. Trickle charging does take a while so be prepared for that. Ration cautiously, use the LED lights when absolutely needed. 2. Bugging out (innawoods) requires a whole lot of previous strategic prepping and planning so this may not be the best option for most folks. Harsh weather can be a pain in the ass (sometimes deadly) if you are not prepared for it. If you have not previously planned to bug out and do not know what you are getting into it is VERY dangerous. Wildlife survival requires a lot of labor and skills, including treating wounds/lacerations on-the-go. 3). When the trucks stop, the inventory in stores dry up and quickly. It takes about 4 hours for the average person to realize when SHTF and they will all flock to the stores like apes do during black friday and they will grab anything and everything they can. All inventory will be gone within 24 hours across the nation. So you better have what you need in advance! 4). Self defense is also key, because those that know or find out you have supplies will come to steal it when desperate. Be prepared to kill a few folks, and you can't leave dead bodies to rot around you either (contamination/diseases spreads quick). So figure that all out in advance via extra thick garbage bags for double bagging and a few aerosol cans to puncture and wrap up with the body goes a long way to properly disposing it without drawing attention. Takes about 4 to 5 hours before the smell draws quick attention.
