If you have these five items, you have a reasonable chance of surviving a long term apocalypse.
It may not be enjoyable, life might not be “worth” living, you might have psychological issues, but your immediate physical needs will be met, and you are able to survive.
The reason this mini thought exercise is worth doing is because sometimes preparedness can get overwhelming…especially for those new to prepping.

Unfortunately…for many, this equates to throwing in the towel and giving up. Finding it easier to convincing themselves “SHTF will never happen”, instead of putting forth the effort to be ready “just in case IT does”.
