The purpose of this thread is to list out the essential weapons and supplies you will have for the impending collapse of civilization. These supplies are for yourself (we'll pretend you don't have dependents).
You have $20,000 cash (it's all you were able to withdraw) and five 1oz gold nuggets from your safe deposit box. The last time you checked gold was $2,000 an ounce; credit cards and hand-shakes are worthless now. It's just you your money and your wits.
Prices for your supplies are present day prices +50% due to the general panic. You have no supplies or weapons aside from one weeks groceries, some camping equipment, things you would expect to find in your house and a kitchen knife set (you don't have any guns or blades--yet).
What will you do with your money?
By your best estimate it's going to be just a few weeks before it all goes to pot...
Basic Camping Supply List that you have:
3 man all season tent with fly and ground cover and accessories
0 F Mummy Bag with 5R ground pad
Day Pack with camel-back
Water filtration bottle with spare filter
Hatchet, Steel Shovel, Flint and fire starter
Basic Travel First Aid Kit
50y of nylon rope
All packed inside a large plastic tub
