We covered the first five of the ten survival mistakes to avoid last week. Here are mistakes 6 through 10.
6. Putting all your eggs in one basket
You should keep your food supplies in different parts of your house. If all your food stores are in the basement and your house gets flooded, your supplies will get damaged or wiped out.
The same applies to money and firearms. Don’t place all your money or firearms in one place just in case you get robbed.
7. Underestimating how much water you need
During a crisis, water is extremely important. You should store as much as you can. Many estimate too modestly and don’t have enough stored for a crisis. You need water for a variety of purposes ranging from drinking to showers to rinsing food and even for flushing the toilet. Ensure that you store enough water.
8. No support network
No man is an island. In the event you need to evacuate, do you have family and friends out of state that you can stay with? Plan all of this well in advance. It’s best to have a support network with people who have your back should a crisis strike.
9. Building an arsenal
Many love their guns and they can’t have enough. They stock up on all the different types of firepower that they think they’ll need, and they have a ton of ammo.
In reality, all you probably need is a shotgun, a hunting rifle, and handgun for personal protection. You do NOT need 25 different types of assault rifles to take on the hordes of zombies.
Firearms are costly and you’re better off using the money to buy food supplies and paying for a home security system or getting your house retrofitted to weather strong winds during a hurricane.
10. Forgetting about wilderness survival
In most cases, you’ll be better off staying safe at home. However, there may be times when you need to evacuate and leave the area. You might choose to drive to another urban location, or you might head for the wilderness.
During times of terrorist attacks, mob violence and other chaos caused by humans, heading for the wild might be your best option temporarily. You’ll be safer there because there’ll probably not be any dangerous people heading into the wilderness to cause problems for you.
You’ll need wilderness survival skills to survive in the wild. No matter how well-prepared you are for an urban scenario, when you’re in a jungle or desert or snowy area, you’ll be out of your element.
