Survival Gear List


preparedness kitThere are lot of survival gear lists out there. Actually almost every survival blogger have created a own version. What I suggest is that you will not read all lists, because those just include same items in different order and you are wasting your time.

Instead get a one complete list and a long term plan and get fully prepared using those. There is one out there: The Ultimate Prepper Plan – 12 Months Step by Step Guide to Full preparedness. It helps you to build up long term survival food supply, get all items and skills step by step. There’s complete list and plan for each month what to get and how much and what skills to learn etc. Click here to find out more.

I know how hard it is to start preparing, but you shouldn’t delay. SHTF can happen tomorrow. However, it is extremely hard to get ready only using this kind of survival gear lists. Why? Because you need also a plan and it must be long term plan. You still can put together 72 hours bug out bag quite easily, but how about preparing for one year? It is possible, but definately it requires not only a complete list but also a perfect plan. That’s what I have created! I have done The Ultimate Prepper Plan – 12 Months Step by Step Guide to Full preparedness. It helps you to build up long term survival food supply, get all items and skills step by step.
