    From a Sarajevo War Survivor:
    Experiencing horrible things that can happen in a war - death of parents and
    friends, hunger and malnutrition, endless freezing cold, fear, sniper attacks.

    1. Stockpiling helps. but you never no how long trouble will last, so locate
    near renewable food sources.
    2. Living near a well with a manual pump is like being in Eden.
    3. After awhile, even gold can lose its luster. But there is no luxury in war
    quite like toilet paper. Its surplus value is greater than gold's.
    4. If you had to go without one utility, lose electricity - it's the easiest to
    do without (unless you're in a very nice climate with no need for heat.)
    5. Canned foods are awesome, especially if their contents are tasty without
    heating. One of the best things to stockpile is canned gravy - it makes a lot of
    the dry unappetizing things you find to eat in war somewhat edible. Only needs
    enough heat to "warm", not to cook. It's cheap too, especially if you buy it in
    bulk.
    6. Bring some books - escapist ones like romance or mysteries become more
    valuable as the war continues. Sure, it's great to have a lot of survival
    guides, but you'll figure most of that out on your own anyway - trust me, you'll
    have a lot of time on your hands.
    7. The feeling that you're human can fade pretty fast. I can't tell you how many
    people I knew who would have traded a much needed meal for just a little bit of
    toothpaste, rouge, soap or cologne. Not much point in fighting if you have to
    lose your humanity. These things are morale-builders like nothing else.
    8. Slow burning candles and matches, matches, matches

    Here we go again.

    I'll send you back to any time and place in history randomly. You can take 100 rolls of TP or 10 oz of gold. Which do you take? (and we're not even considering the difficulty of carting around 100 rolls of TP)

    Can mantle lamps be used indoors without asphyxiating everyone?

    Yes,we use oil lamps all winter.We also will shut off our power for a week at a time during winter just ta check our preps out.The OP has some good points,I don't agree with them all;but I'll bet his ao/situation is different than ours is.We have wood heat and manual water capability and a huge genset.

    We go native ta expand and hone are skills,I've got a thread in the S/P that sheds a little light on our methods/preps.'08.

    As you said "random",it may come too a time when a "product" is more important than a "currency",granted gold does talk,however if there is no way for that gold ta be diversified inta "real" goods it kinda looses it's luster.I'd rather trade a man a roll of "white" gold for a loaf of bread than be unable ta barter a 1/10oz gc for "whatever".In a BTWall situation folk will need "real" goods not PMs they can't do a thing with.

    The main thing wrong with your assumption is that there will be folks around that will be able ta meet your needs/wants with inventory on hand.If it gets that bad PMs will be near useless,it'll be a straight barter economy.In that scenario,I'll be holding what I got.It'll fall ta fossils/ammo-ect,real life uses,not PMs that while they are valuable,are really useless in a hand ta mouth breakdown.'08.

    Hmmm. That's a neat list. The advice at the bottom is interesting too.

    I'll take 8oz of gold and 20 rolls of TP. See ya!



    Actually, the last part was written by a Sarajevo war survivor who has been there, done that and got the t-shirt. I'll go with his real, practical experience of what really happened.

    But as above I will do both if I can.

    What I have done is use my Coleman gas lamp indoors by sitting it on the fireplace grate and opening the flue. No probs, maybe crack a window.

    Not a fair comparison.

    10 oz of gold....$15,000 or so

    100 rolls of TP.....can be purchased for about $30.

    And are we talking regular, super, or mega rolls...:supergrin:

    Given your scenario I will propose this: Time....1593 (don't know..it sounded good) Place: the single most remote and uninhabited place in the world where at this time you have zero chance of being rescued.

    Guess I would rather have the TP?

    My brother wants to stock pile Gold and Silver: told him he is a little late. It has its place...but not before he buys a good water filter, as least one gun, a second pair of boots, full size spare for his car, etc.

    :rofl:

    I can assure you either they will sit on the shelf and laughed at when looters come, or they will be stripped of the one or two valuble item they contain for that situation and the rest of the contents will be dumped on the floor.

    If your risking life and limb to find survival in a can, Darwin is probably breathing down your neck for being in the shallow end of the gene pool.
     
  16. You, sir, have obviously never attempted to wipe yourself with gold.:toilet:

    Now choose $20 worth of gold, or $20 worth of toilet paper. :tongueout:
