for apoclapyse survival you would firstly need to hone your body and train it to endure the harsh climate of the post apocalyse era or the era of the apoctapyse. first you would need to learn and find what is edible and not hazrdous to your health . leaves for example can be eaten i eat leaves of many trees and plants and havnt had any problems as of late. but it is better to eat fresh leaves as opposed to dry ones . Next would be survival it would be best to train in martial arts during this time by shadow arts i.e shadow boxing and fighting projected enemies till a real advesory were to come. Also it would be good for one to practice upon their knife welding skills using any sharp objects that they can find. basic straight strikes no inward knife grips just an open straight one for fighting. Guns will probably be hard to find as will ammo unless you have it before hand if that is the case then one should presrve their ammuntion and use it only when neccessary espcially when fighting groups of unarmed people and not to shoot unless they see the 'whites of their eyes'. and also finding shade or making some sort of shade with objects that one can get their hands on the same goes for finding heat one should make a fire and try to learn how to do so with out a match stick or lighter . Water sources are also to be sought after most water can be found under ground so if a river or lake or an oasis is not nearb by one should dig the ground even though that can be a bit tenious as the water may be deep underground. and clothes should be made from water ever cloth or cloth like material can be slavaged and will help a great deal against the harsh enviroment that one finds themselves in.

Learn to grow your own food, hunt and forage, can foods and store necessities.

I don't think people have to be overly creepy preppers - there are some of us who just don't mind having enough toilet paper to last for 6 months should we be trapped in our house...
It actually isn't a bad idea to be somewhat prepared for something bad to happen - it doesn't have to be the apocalypse. It is recommended that you should have enough to live on for a good 6-12 months in the event that you get ill or lose your job.

And my advice to everyone, keep some cash on hand in a hidden place in your home. A few hundred is good, a thousand is probably better.
If the economy starts to crumble (like in Greece), or just in case of a natural disaster and there is no electricity (like Hurricane Sandy) - you can't get far without your debit/credit cards. Cash is king.

Just invest in the cannibalism perk.

You are all insane.That being said I have the military training, the combat experience, and the weapons to probably start my own raider tribe or something more humane I haven't decided yet.

If you know how to prep, you could have food, water and ammo for 6 months to a year... buy MREs, canned food, bottled water, basic survival gear like a compass, water purification tablets, flashlight, military-grade clothing, a rucksack, and if you so choose, a firearm and ammo... people make fun of people who prep, but hey, you never know when the bombs will fall, it could be when I'm very old, on the date Fallout predicts them to fall, Oct. 23, 2077 XD

I don't think I'd survive an apocalypse... But I guess I do know someone who has loads of food and guns and ammunition in case of an apocalypse. And he's been storing it for years.

Says you mate, I survived Afghanistan and five direct hits that left nothing but deep scars along my ribs. I even came out stronger and faster. You can crawl in a hole and die. I am going to build a raider tribe and rule the wastelands World War 3 will leave behind.

Depends on the kind of apocalypse too. Survival is completely different between, say, nuclear holocaust, or economic collapse, or a powerful solar storm.

It also depends on what environment you live in, or plan to live in. Like I live in Central Texas, there is just not a lot of rainfall most years, so water would be a major issue here in a survival situation, as well as growing food, because again, water. It is also, you know, hot in the summer, so you have to learn to deal with all of that.

Another words there is a lot of variables you have to look at, whether you have family to take care of or just you, whether you team up or go solo, whether civilization is being rebuilt or it is basically Walking Dead styled very few people left in the world, etc.

^ Going solo is only going to get you killed in the long run. It's the first thing the Army teaches is the value of teamwork. It doesn't matter the situation if you ain't got a good team behind you the only fate you have in store is death eventually. As for learning to deal with harsh environments unless there is a nuclear war ala Fallout a simple relocation will usually suffice, especially on the European and North American, and South American Continents were terrain and weather can change drastically within a few hundred kilometres . And wandering is slowly going to become pointless. Some kind of rebuilding is going to have to occur for any long term survival situation to happen. And I rather think people overplay the difficulty of rebuilding a semblance of society. I mean our ancestors tied a rock to a stick and created fire with no previous knowledge on how to do such things and that eventually lead us to the technological dominant society we live in now. And unlike the cavemen we wouldn't be starting from square one.

Don't panic, earth even in an apocalypse scenario is mostly harmless. But whatever you do, remember your Towel.

I can't even panic, because the stupid demolition notice is way down at the bottom of dark stairs guarded by vicious guard dogs
