No boat yet, but a year of food for four (probably only last 3 months after friends arrive) at home. back up wood stove and a hand pump for the well. Plan and armaments are in place to repel borders. and a crank operated ham radio. I'm also vet, so homeland security is probobly monitoring my internet activity.

Stocking up with food for SHTF scenarios is one thing, but what about navigation? Anybody really seriously going to depend on GPS solely? Anybody stocking up on charts, learning to use the sextant, honing DR skills?

Can't rely on any one thing - especially on just electronics. Must have charts, chart tools, sextant, and know how to use them. The goal is to be completely self-sufficient. Read Farming the Sea.

[QUOTE=bljones;831463]"Yes, honey, I know it is only 6 weeks to Hawaii, and yes, I know we have a chartplotter, a backup chartplotter, an Iphone with a nav app which is also loaded on the iPad, paper charts, a sextant, radar, a compass, but just in case we MISS HAWAII, could you make sure there is at least 50 pounds of bacon on board?"

Good god, tsunami wreckage DRIFTED from Japan to British Columbia in less than 6 months. Just how slow is your boat, anyway?

West coast of Mexico to Galapagos, Galapagos to Marquesas, then on to the Tuamotus. Stop in Tahiti, Huahine, Bora Bora and other exotic locales, then exploring Tonga for a month or so. Final passage to new Zealand. 9 months for us enroute. We kept running into these islands...Bring on the BACON!

Depending on how long one expects to hunker down in one of these SHTF scenarios, you're going to need a lot of spare parts to be self sufficient on a sailboat. You may need to tow another boat.

Question for those stocking up

OK, here's a question for those who are stocking up.

Why?

All kidding aside, is it 2012? Mayans? A DHS takeover? WWIII?

I'm not throwing stones here. But I know a couple of guys who are stocking up here and some of the comments have echoed things I've heard them say.

I'm curious...
