About =Jesse=Age- 27
Relationship Status- Married
Things I like- Jack Daniels, Dogs, Martial Arts, Firearms, A good drunken brawl with my buddies from time to time, cigars, trucks, glam rock, red meat, hot sauce (seriously hot, like competition hot, not that silly taco bell hot), Aliens, Predator, knowing that if it bleeds we can kill it, tattoos, scrambled eggs with cheese, corn beef hash
Things I don't like- Snobs, excessive sarcasm, know it all's, traffic, lettuce, sharks, murky water, people that don't bring food or drinks to a party (you know who you are), the Kardashians, anything on Bravo TV, mustard, people who mistake roads for NASCAR, NASCAR
What items will I most likely want to trade for after shtf? Jack Daniels, condoms, ammunition, dog food...oh yea, and that whole clean water and food thing too.
Music? You know, lots of people post things like heavy metal or rap. Real cool IS Journey. If you're wandering the barren wastelands and you hear zombies meeting their demise to a rockin Journey mix...you can be 100% sure it's me....JOURNEY!!!
My Survival Plan:My “handle” should you look for me on the radio waves or web: =jesse=
My location: Maryland
Will I be staying in my home or headed somewhere else? Initially home until the dust settles. Consume our perishables and then relocating (if necessary).
How will I travel? I sold the Bronco and it's massive awesomeness. Now we just have my wife's Jeep Patriot. It's still big enough to carry our 4 dogs and bug out gear. Tested the 4 wheel drive in some pretty deep snow and it worked great.
Got anyone I want to take with me? My wife and dogs
How am I planning to get food and water? I have enough canned food, rice, honey, peanut butter, and mre's to last 6 people for about 1.5 months; 2 months if we stretch it. Current water supply is right at 30 days for 6 people. That doesn't count the water tank at our house. All in all..not too bad for bugging in.
When all that runs out, we live deep in the forest near water. Lots of natural water and plentiful deer, fox, rabbit, etc. Worse comes to worse...maybe eat a neighbor or two ;)
What about first aid? I'm beginning to stock up in some basic medical supplies and first aid. Right now I have a few bottles of hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol, and povidone-iodine, about 1300 tablets of Motrin, a couple hundred tablets of Tylenol extra strength, 4 ace bandages, a few rolls of medical tape, 4 bottles of neosporin, 4 bottles of pepto, and 2 bottles of caladryl.
I'd like to purchase a suture kit and maybe see if I can enroll in a basic first aid course.
How will I reach out and touch the zombies???
1. Mossberg Persuader w/ telescoping stock
2. Mossberg Mariner w/ pistol grip
3. WASR-10 (AK-47)
4. Springfield XD-45
5. Ruger SR-9
Totaled up, we've got 2 pistols, 2 shotguns, and 1 rifle.
My wife and I each carry a side arm + one long gun. That leaves us with 1 spare long gun to hand off to someone else or tie onto our bug out bag (probably will be the pistol grip 12 gauge).
Got a survival philosophy? It's the apocalypse. What's the rush?
Am I willing to hook up with other survivors? So long as you're not like Shane and leave me to die in a hospital, then sleep with my wife, then point a gun at me when I return, then throw a wrench at me, then try to kill me out in a field....yes, I'm willing to hook up with other survivors.
Is my plan based on a book/movie/blog/scientist other survivors may have heard of? Kind of...I plan on doing the opposite of whatever got people killed in the movies
Some gear that =Jesse= and his Wife came across
=Jesse's= Super Sweet Bug Out Plan
So this map shows where I will be when zombies are running around town. I'm not in the immediate vicinity of any danger zones, relatively deep in the forest, and within walking distance of a reservoir. For those of you wondering, this is an image of Maryland.
*More to come on an actual plan later....*
