This photo shows a shelter that you can build in the wilderness. I once took a couple of young people out in the woods and we stayed for a couple of days to see how we would do. The shelter we built was similar to the one shown here. We pretty much starved since we didnít know what was edible and we survived by heading for home as fast as we could.
If disaster strikes you can't head for the nearest grocery store, as the shelves will be empty. Urban survival isnít very doable because your neighbors will take what you have stored up. Gangs will be roaming the streets looking for anything that they can eat. People will think nothing of killing you and taking whatever you might have saved up for an emergency. So the best advice for urban survival is to get out of the city as fast as you can.
Remember what happened at hurricane Katrina? The government surrounded the city with troops and didn't let anyone get out. This was done to prevent streams of people coming out and looting the surrounding areas. So be prepared. If a big disaster happens to your city you may not be able to get out if you wait. The wait time is about two hours after a disaster and then it will be too late to escape.
The basic things you will need are water, heat and shelter. An emergency preparedness kit will help with all this. If you have warning that something bad is going to happen fill buckets of water to drink, cook food and flush the toilet. To prepare you should have between 20 to 30 buckets handy.
Just flush your toilet a couple of times a day depending on how many people you have in your home. You will have to leave if the problem out lasts your supplies.

Food is pretty easy to store up. You can purchase food that will store for years like MRS's and buckets of meals that you will find on this page. Also have flour, sugar and other ingredients that you can use to make food from scratch. Canned food and dry beans and rice is a must. Don't forget salt and oil.
Heat might be a little harder. A wood stove is best if you can get the wood. But if not, a propane stove is second best. Make sure you can cook on the top of your wood stove and have a propane camp stove that you can use too. Have plenty of propane canisters to use with your camp stove. All these things must be ready before a disaster happens. You won't be able to go shopping as the stores will clean out in a couple of hours.
Keep your car filled with gas so you can drive a long distance to get away in case there isn't anymore gas. A couple of gas cans should be filled for emergencies and then changed often so it won't get old.
Use a generator to power your TV and computer so you can tell what is happening. Never use the generator indoors as many have died from this.
The hand crank radio and flashlight igives a good light and you can get the news from the radio to see what is happening. I have one that will charge my cell phone too. All this is really handy and should be added to your supplies.
Be pared to live off he grid for days if not weeks and months. Have books on hand that will teach you how to survive in the wilderness and how to start a fire from scratch.
However don't wait for an emergency before learning how to do these things. Instead go out and practice what you have learned and make sure you can actually do it.
My nephew just got back from a senior survival activity. Their senior high school class does this ever year. The students are warned that they will be taken off into the wilderness for four days. The staff keep it as a surprise when they will be taken so they won't have any supplies with them. They will have a few things to eat but mostly will learn what is edible in the woods and how to survive there. They made rain proof shelters and learned how to start a fire from scratch. Once the outing was done they all had a pizza meal and were thankful for modern society.
Dear Survival Fans,
I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.
In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep
