    Maybe ox should sticky this in the main sport forum ,similar to when a hurricane is approaching, so that more people see it.

    The schitstorm is right around the corner, shelves are emptying, people fighting in the stores over items. Supply chain crashing, National Emergency declared...

    If you haven't prepped you need to do it NOW, not only are local stores running out, the warehouses are almost empty and truck won't be rolling soon. Prepare like a Cat 5 is coming, but you'll need to ride it out for a couple of months.

    Crazy to grind our civilization to a halt over the same number of deaths as a rough weekend in Chicago. But it here and happening. I would guess for every positive case, there are another 10 out there, limited and flawed testing has put us behind the curve. There is no stopping the spreading, the self quarantining, (or soon to be declared 2 week National Quarantine, more on that in a momentt) will slow it down, but it's a virus and as long as people interact and move around, it will continue to infect more people.

    I would like to keep the politics out of this thread... :) We are all members of the Gator Nation, and Americans, in times like this is when the people pull together to overcome.

    On to preps:

    If you need medication, get extra.

    Get pasta, rice & beans, canned goods, crackers, items that will last. You should try to stock up for minimal 2 months, the longer the better. IF the full stop comes and you don't have enough, think about cutting your intake to 1 meal a day, or do the numbers of how many meals you can prepare with the amount of food you have and how long you expect this last, to stretch that food. (Looking on the bright side, you can lose that weight you've been talking about...) Plant something that grows fast. I expect water and electric to not be a problem.

    Get ready to board up the house like for a hurricane if things get out of control and gangs start to roam. Review your self defense . Get more ammo, my local Bass Pro had half empty shelves..

    Watch Youtube videos of how to make a solar stove, post your tips of what will help to ride this out.

    Rumors are out that if the numbers spike in the next week or so, the next step is a nationwide shutdown of 2 weeks. Major sporting games, Disney, etc., schools, most events over a few hundred people are canceled already. This will allow the medical field to handle the number of cases instead of being overloaded by hundred of thousands in a short period.

    Be safe

                  I was told if you can smell the breath of the person next to you, you’re inhaling their coronavirus. Not sure how this is impacted by breath mints.

                        Here's my best advice on the preparations needed for the corona virus. These are step by step preparations and only apply if you believe the original poster.

                        1) Don't procreate (If you already have children adopt them out).

                            I picked up an extra vial of insulin for my dog. That's the limit of my prepping.

                            Hoping the market retests those lows on Monday for a nice entry point on some out-of-the-money June expiration calls.

                                    I was just at the grocery store and was amazed at some of the stuff that was sold out. Most amazing was the fresh fruit and vegetables. Just how long do people think bananas last anyway? In addition to the absence of paper products and cleaning supplies, I was surprised to see how hard garbage bags and plastic food storage containers had been hit. There were still some steaks and plenty of seafood available, but all the chicken was gone. Very weird.
                                    Lastly I was very amused to see all the bottled water gone (and most of the Gatorade). I hope the folks buying that up weren’t the same ones decimating the frozen food section. I hate to tell them that if things get so bad that there’s no fresh water, then there prolly won’t be electricity either and all that frozen food will spoil.
                                    Having said all that, I am going to go back out and get a couple cases of beer; definitely can’t be too careful when it comes to the basic necessities.

                                      This is really good advice for a meteor strike or a nuclear holocaust. It is unlikely we need to be this nutty for the virus. One thing to add to your post is the fact that you can live for 6 weeks without food, but only 48 hours without water. If you cut your caloric intake to say 600-800 Calories per day you can last many months or years. If you really want to be a prepper you need a way of filtering and purifying drinking water.

                                                Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
