					The Lists

Notes about the lists:

    First, whatever list you choose, take it with you in your pack, or take all of the lists if
you wish. It will help you replenish later, and it could make you a hero if you help others
prepare their own packs. Each person in your party or family should have their own pack
of items. And remember, the more you have, the more you have to defend.
    Second, all of my lists included provisions for your animals. I do not believe in
leaving my animals behind to fend for themselves, since they are domesticated and don’t
know how to do that. So whether it’s a small baggy of dry food thrown into your pack
and a leash, or a large bag of food, two leashes and a cat carrier, I expect you to do the
right thing by those for whom you are responsible.
    Third, the “Better” and “Best” lists include taking along “Trade Goods.” I’ve provided
a list of those as well. Stick that in your pack along with the other items.
    Last, there are things on the lists that could bear further explanation, such as “water
purification.” You can kill off some of the nasty stuff in water with a few drops of bleach,
and then filter it using cloth of some sort. There are also some wonderful purifiers and
filters on the market. This is the sort of information you would have from a basic survival
book, which is why one of the first things I recommend to go along with my own
information is a small survival book. While my information is useful, it isn’t intended as
that same sort of “how to” survival guide.
    I think the only other thing that needs to be mentioned is that this is my copyrighted
information. If you want to share the lists with others, especially AFTER the apocalypse,
please do. However, you cannot publish the lists, either in written form or on a Web site,
without my express permission.
