    Pretty decent list, but a bit dated; several Y2K things on there.

    This is definately an older list, pre Y2K. It is nice to look at though to see where I am in prepping compared to back then. I definately feel more comfortable.

    mosquitomountainman I invented the internet. :rofl:

    I'd add

    rabbits to the list of livestock. In a real long term situation without electricity or refrigeration your fresh meat will probably consist of what you can butcher and prepare for one meal.

    Also, in any long term disaster it's best to have livestock that's not competing for the same food you'll be eating. Rabbits, chickens and goats fit that label. They can all pretty much forage for themselves.

    Good call. I raise rabbits on and off. Got rid of them last when my wife was pregnant a year and a half ago. Thinking about getting a couple this year. we feed them rabbit pellets but in a pinch a handful of grass and some clean water and they're good for the day. :)
