Nomadic Survival

A Listmania! list by Anders Blom
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "This list is not for "bugging out", it is tailored more towards mass exodus. Most bug out bags are set up to do one thing: retreat. They don't allow you to sustain on a longer term, only to get you from point A (a once secure location, now unsecure) to point B (a known secure location). This list is for the time when there isn't a point B, when there is no known location for refuge.

Disposable N95 dust masks are ONLY good for small limited exposure, they do NOT seal around your face adequately, allowing for unfiltered air to pass, and they won't filter pathogens and toxins. If you want superior protection then spend $100 on a well fitted and NEW full-face Mil-Spec 40mm NATO mask, with as many NEW filters as possible. Real functional and viable gear costs real money.

Rules:
1) Be prepared. It's better to have something and not need it than to need it and not have it. This goes for information as well, learn your skills, practice them, and keep quality sources of advanced knowledge at hand.
2) Keep consumption down. Don't depend on consumable items and resources.
3) Time, distance, and shielding. Whatever your enemy is - whether nuke or angry hoard, put distance and mass between you and it, and do it for as long as possible.

I have at least ten Listmania lists about survival and the many different approaches to it."
3M Tekk Paint Project Respirator, Large, P95
1.  3M Tekk Paint Project Respirator, Large, P95 by 3M
The list author says:
  "Strong, well placed straps and a rubber face seal, can filter gases. Use the included prefilters for particulate (smoke/dust). 10 min. of breathing concrete dust is deadlier than a lifetime of smoking (ref to 9/11). Full-face mask version can op w/SCBA too. Stockpile Filters."
