Almost all of my stuff is former military, probably considered vintage now, but all tried, true, and personally tested to the max. If need be, i could bug out quickly. i am riding the fence on whether or not i would take off. everyone has their plan, i have a contingency for staying put, as well for heading south to the caves. most of it depends on numbers of people and personal choices within the group. at what point do you break off and become the lone ranger ? when family is involved, it is not such an easy decision.
meds are hard to measure for because the easiest and most efficient form to carry them is in pills. but pills are also the easiest form that they break down chemically. they would need to be kept in darkened, watertight containers, easily distinguishable from each other to avoid overdosing and just plain wastefulness of taking the wrong one because you thought it was for something else. pain relief and antibiotics would be at a premium. pain relief you can also get from some plants if you know what to look for and how it needs to be prepared. from the reading i have been doing and looking around the grounds, i have been able to identify some very useful plants. but any meds you keep, just know that after very long, they become not only useless, but also potentially harmful.
