And it seems to be more discussed than what to actually do when TSHTF. Anybody can weigh in on this but i was just wondering if being prepared stockpile wise was necessarily better than being prepared in common knowledge and your environment. The reason i ask is because A friend of my dads was talking about how he had a place all sorted out if anything bad were to happen, then he went on to say that all he would need to make it through any situation is to stockpile food, water, and ammo. Is this a common belief among people because? I personally think that it would be better to be prepared to live off your surroundings rather than to stockpile and run off and hunker down with your goodies. I don't know, maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like there's something flawed with the thought process of "hide as much stuff as you can then try to live off it later", to me. Feel free to share your thoughts.
