From Sarra R: I get a LOT of emails from preppers offering a year’s amount of survival food and other “free with order” extras. The issue is, I, like many, make low wage and even those “normally 5k, but I’m offering all this at only $1,999.00” deals just aren’t do-able at all. What should low wage earners do to ensure they can afford to make their own 25 year shelf life food storage? I mean, we are human also and deserve the chance to survive. What would be your advice?
Answer: You don’t necessarily have to buy survival food storage all at once, you can slowly build up your long-term food storage for as little as $5 a week. Here is a link to access a plan I have used that shows you how to build up a year’s supply of food without spending a ton of money: https://spyescapeandevasion.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Food-Storage-for-a-year.pdf
From Rob B: One of my concerns is that if our country is attacked by North Korea or any other country with nuclear bombs, what type of clothing do you suggest for people to wear. I assume that people will have to wear gas mask of some sort. What do you suggest? And of course, where can these items be purchased and what is the approximate cost?
Answer: When it comes to gas masks I personally recommend the Israeli gas mask. These sell for only $30 on Amazon and are quality masks. The fact is, many Israeli civilians have these since they are dealing with unstable neighboring countries. As for clothing, regular clothing will not stop any type of fallout from reaching your skin. Ideally, you want to wear wet weather gear that will keep the moisture out. So, I recommend a gas mask and waterproof gear if you have to leave your home after an attack, but remember, it all depends on where the blast happened and how close you are to it.
From Steve Y: Can’t remember if you’ve touched on this before but is a fireproof gun cabinet sufficient to work as a Faraday Cage?
Answer: Depending on the specific fireproof safe there is a chance it could work but I wouldn’t count on it. You see, many fireproof safes are actually designed with seals that expand when heated. In other words, these seals aren’t as tight as they would need to be to work as a Faraday cage. Another problem is that if your safe as an electronic lock it will probably be damaged and won’t be able to open after an attack.
From Lawrence M: Quick question. How do I find out if a specific VPN will store any customer information? How do I find out?
