Assuming you survived, what would you want to have with you after a nuclear holocaust?

1) Water, can goods, toilet paper, fire and utensils. 2) Terri Hatcher or the red head in the post. 3) An mp3 player 4) Lots of books where I could read forever. 5) A couple of pairs of glasses in case I break one.

Having in safe storage two of everything currently offered by REI Outfitters, by Cabela's and by Lawrence's Sunflower Bike & Outdoor would be a very sensible starting point. Well, all that stuff plus lots of stored food and water. Having also a communication and/or signaling capability with nearby survivors, with whom to possibly coordinate survival response, would help re-establishing the public peace. Such as it would be.

Hell of it is, were there to be an actual all-out nuclear war of the type where every nation explodes its nuclear weapons against a target, then odds are high that any survival strategy I implement will instantly be rendered insufficient by profound climate changes following World War III's nuclear exchanges and/or bio-chemical weapons exchanges.

It's always sobering to think a few moments on what Albert Einstein once said: "After World War III, World War IV will be fought with rocks."

Hopefully I'd already have a bunker so I could hang out there for about a month until fallout subsided, then quite a bit of building materials, tools and a whoooole lot of ammo and reloading equipment, as well as seeds and livestock of some sort.

That and a huge truck with an extra 200 gallons of diesel to move all of the above about 500 miles away.

I'm sure it will never happen...Obama will just say "pretty please don't push the button." No worries.....

Food, water, Christina Hendricks and since we will have a lot of free time on our hands, The Complete Kama Sutra.

Will I have to pay a higher fee to get my LJW paper delivered to my bunker?

Marshmallows, Hershey's Chocolate, Graham Crackers, and a couple wire hangars.

I think the question should be "whom would you want to be with you" , but sticking with the question as is I'll say a bottle opener. Some of Bob's biscuits and gravy wouldn't hurt

I s'pose I'd keep my small critter trap handy. Just this morning I checked on it to see if pesky Mr. Woodchuck had sauntered inside. No groundhog but surprised Mr. Fox didn't look very happy. The scared little guy snorted like a pig while I was opening the door to free him. Then he just sat there. Aren't they s'posed to be sly? I had to dump him out, then ZIP! He was gone in a flash. Not sly, but definitely quick.

lab - Three redheads? or ground zero? Better think it over . . .

Up at 4AM today, casting the currency of the next decade. Another 400 of .45acp. Between this weather and the casting pot it's best done before the sun gets too high . . .

Haven't a clue. Just gonna keep playing the odds. I'm betting that, if it happens, it won't be until the worst it can do to me is knock my urn off the mantel.

Guns, gold, and land (along with at least the survival water straw and MRE's). Secondarily, my wife and two or three redheads so I can help repopulate the earth.

I guess the best thing would be in Vertigo's camp.

I was going to say plenty of bullets/shotgun shells.....for starters. Then hope the Lowes/Home Depot etc was not at ground Zero.

Everyone needs to read the book "One Second After" by William Fortschen.

1 Guns and plenty of ammo

2 water filtration system

3 plenty of medicine (ibuprofen, antibiotics, etc)

4 the Foxfire series of books on survival and basic plain living skills

Not everyone understands how to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. But that's okay, they'll be food and slaves for the almighty king MacGuyver.

I don't believe the first two contestants understood the question. A nuclear explosion's EMP would, most likely, make their modern electronic devices useless.

Assuming that I would have the health to live ... a Rossi Ranch Hand and lots of ammo would be my choice.

Thanks. I thought I was banned off this immortal coil. I'll be off here after tomorrow morning. I picked a fantastic weekend to go camping.

EMP would take out most everything. Maybe Freestate could still keep filling growlers.

Something pleasant to overdose on. It's a nuclear holocaust and we all live in the northern hemisphere. You can either die strung out on morphine, crapping your own pants; or you you can die in pain, crapping blood and the lining of your intestines into your pants.
