I would still need a generator, and build a faraday cage for it. If I do recall, microwaves can act as a faraday cage. Not sure if all microwaves would work. We do have enough food for one person for 1 year, but with 4 adults, and two kids. Maybe 2-3 months worth of food. Ammo, and firearms, I've got plenty, but could always use more, but should invest in a crossbow, and arrows. We do have some Kerosene stored up with some heaters, so we could use that when needed, and sparingly. No water filtration system right now. So that will be a top priority.

The hardest part being in the midwest is trying to survive the winters. This winter wouldn't have been that bad, but when temperatures get -20 below or more. That's when things will really suck.

Not sure how many read the book Patriots, or Lights Out, but does give some good insight on what you could expect.

Assuming the EMP doesn't kill me, the rest is pretty simple:

pack up my belongings and start travelling to wherever the power is still working.



-okay, I admit-- it sounded a lot better in my head...
