Doomsday Jack by jollyjack Doomsday Jack by jollyjack
I have a nasty habit of scaring myself when studying the precarious house of cards that is western civilization. We’re almost always 7 days away from starvation. One hiccup with the oil supply and the supermarkets don’t get restocked.
Then what?
People panic when there’s a little snow, here. God knows what they’ll do if there’s a genuine crisis.
So, I thought it best to assemble a “Time to get the hell out of here” kit, just in case society collapses and I have to make a run for it.

There’s a whole bunch of other goodies I’ve got tucked away in those pouches. Everything from wire-saws to little bullet-proof mirrors. Key components are listed: food, water, fire, first aid and pointy things.

Maybe I've been playing too much Fallout. Maybe I need to go watch some cartoons. Regardless: I'm ready!!
:D

Not sure precisely what the laws are over there on bows, but you could quickly and inexpensively build yourself a PVC bow with a 40-65lb pull with around 10-20 dollars worth of materials and a bit of skill/watching youtube would allow you to craft one that you can break down into easily storable parts. Evidently they can last for years if you either protect them from the sun or don't let direct sunlight on the beasties... (Sunlight breaks down PVC).

Arrows of course you'd have to acquire, but you could make those as well - not sure what sort of weeds and things grow over in the UK much less your area of the UK but there's lots of methods of fashioning arrows. Of course you could always take a machete to a sheep. XD

I also recommend this website for how to build stuff in case of disasters: www.vintageprojects.com/ - back when Popular Mechanics still published useful articles on how you could rejigger junk into useful tools and other items.

One: You make no mention of needing the snazzy coat, which you will because according to alot of sources you need that cool billow effect in the wind that no one is going to see because you are the last of us to survive.

Two: Cartoons will make you be prepping way harder.

Once you fight your way from the cities hop on a sail boat and get to North America as soon as you can, we can show you how to survive in a godforsaken frozen tundra or a blisteringly hot desert.

If you're only expecting to carry 7 days of food in order to reach a rally point, I don't understand the prohibition on a battery-operated radio. For one thing, a typical small transistor radio seems to last for months on a set of alkalines.

Also, a 9V battery and a bit of steel wool make an excellent fire starter.

I have a wind-up radio/light. They don't last very long even on a good winding, and are subject to mechanical breakdown if you get too enthusiastic. Solar-rechargeable might make a better bet.

You bear a very strong resemblance to this DC comics character [link](New_Earth)
But either way you look pretty wicked.
