You just have to look at the state of the economy, global warming, and world relations to realize that yes, we are facing the end times or at least heading down the wrong path.
Because of this, we prepare for the end times. Or at least, when the world becomes so messed up that markets fail, money is no good, and food and materials do not move along their destined route to the consumer. Our motto? Be prepared. You cannot rely on the government or your mom to take care of you if something hits the fan.
So here we will discuss how you go about selecting a safe site, building a bomb shelter and stocking it not only with essentials but also with items you cannot live without. What can you not live without? I'm sure I can list many but here are just a few: wine, books, friends, chocolate. Of course we could argue that these are essentials... :)
