Everybody has his own scenario about SHTF. Is it going to be dark and cold, or hot and suffocating? Is everybody going to become ill or turn into zombies? Or maybe it will be about nuclear fallout burning out any living organism.

We hope we will never find out, but we’ll keep prepping in between. That’s why we stumbled upon other survival websites, and chose a few hints to help your prepping efforts. Keep reading!

I’ve been hearing predictions of a financial collapse for a long time now. It seems that every few months, a new “expert,” either real or manufactured for marketing purposes, is making their own prognostications about our economy and none of them are good.

I’ve even made a few of my own, based upon my own understanding of our country and its economy, later fining that my understanding isn’t as great as I think.

Nevertheless, the sheer volume of reports about our country’s economy going down the tubes tends to lend credibility to the possibility. Of course, we have to watch out about accepting repetition as grounds for proclaiming something as true. After all, if we believed all the polls and pundits, Hillary Clinton would be occupying the White House now.

Can you imagine your life without having a car? Shopping, going to work, taking kids to a game or going to the doctor without having a mean of transportation would turn into a nightmare. Your life is spinning in the rhythm of our four-wheeled companion.

In a bug out situation, your life will depend on your vehicle even more, so make sure you take good care of it and prepare it to remain unnoticed.

If you live in the city, bugging out may be less about driving on uneven terrain and more about avoiding rioters and traffic jams.

The vehicle that you are going to use must look like it belongs in the area you are traveling through. Depending on where you are and what is going on, there will be times when you can use these tips, and times when you should adjust them in order to avoid specific problems.

Many people that haven’t given up on automated transportation during crisis find themselves wondering if their vehicle will be able to navigate over rough terrain. As roads fall into worse disrepair, or are destroyed completely, wheeled vehicles may not work very well, even if there is enough fuel and spare parts to keep them running.

Rubber tires can be a weak point in prepper transport plans, so it may be worthwhile to consider converting the vehicle to one that runs on tracks.

Before spending money on conversion parts and tools, think about the advantages and disadvantages first!

Let’s count them together in the following article!

Using the past economic collapses as an example, we can see that people’s lifestyles changed dramatically. Even those who managed to keep their jobs and businesses have to make radical adjustments in their lies, just to be able to survive.

There is no reason for us to think that things will be any different here in the United States, than they were in Argentina; in fact, they could very well end up being worse.

The reason I say it could be worse is that there will be nobody to bail out the United States, as has been done with other countries. We know from the 2009 housing collapse that anything negative that happens in the U.S. economy has a worldwide effect.

Since other countries will end up suffering as well, there is no way that they will be able to help us.

Invest in food

Many people talk about a recurring economic crisis in US, and look for means to place their money so their investment won’t become useless once the economy hits the ground. For example, a reader recently wrote:

“I am a fan of Survivopedia and I love your articles. I just read your article “Top 4 Things to do Prior to the Dollar Collapsing” and it is the first thing I have read that is helpful. Everything else is for millionaires to get off shore banking, get lots of gold, buy real estate and on and on. I don’t have that kind of money… only a few thousand dollars as an emergency fund… I am 72. It seems to me it is stupid to hand on to the money if it is worthless. Is there some other means of currency exchange that those in the know are doing instead?”

This is a very good question that Dianne asks. Before answering, let me say that I am not a professional financial counselor; all I am is a man who tries to do his best.

Having said that, the standard in the financial investment community is to put your investors money beside your own, taking the same risks and receiving the same benefits. So, based on that standard, the best I can do is to tell you what I’m doing myself.
