Last October I was furlough, I'm a Gov contractor. I use the lesson learned in your book about cash and food. I use the experience as a dress rehearsal for a major catastrophe. Stored food and water was consumed faster than I expected. I think people thought the Gov was defaulting because there were long lines on the banks and ATMS!
By the second week I had to buy drinking water, I thought I have enough for a month. Lesson Learned, stock up on water, gas for the stove, Oreos, run out of them fast!, later friend.
Cash is huge!, can't stress it enough, unless if is a major calamity, cash is the only thing you need. My latest experience was the Gov furlough, and of friends and acquaintances, the first thing was they started to run out of cash!. Having 3 months worth of money for expenses is part of the EDC!. That was a 3 week furlough, and stressed a lot of people!, can you imagine a calamity of major magnitude?. Cash, food, water, EDC, are a must, should be for you.
Food, water, shelter and safety, those are always the basics to cover, but cash is a much needed modern survival tool, which by the way can help acquire any of those just mentioned!
True, water is usually the most underestimated supply in my experience.
