What three items...

...would you stock up on if you knew the end of civilization as we know it was about to occur and why?

Mine would be:

ammunition - I'd want to protect myself and my family
good walking boots - I'd be able to manage better if my feet were protected from the elements
tampons - for obvious reasons

I think this line's mostly filler.

You don't need ammo to start a fire, just two sticks.

But two sticks and some power from an unspent shell really helps.

Well, if you have the ability to light a fire, then you don't really need bottled water. of course, this is coming from the perspective of someone who doesn't agree with all the bottled water crap that goes on these days.

I thought about water, but then decided there'd be water about which I could use, so I wouldn't need to carry it.

I think I'll just hang out with Zen. Or:

Pierogies
Tequila
Cigarettes

I'll probably die. I figure I'll have fun on the way out.

To clarify: is everyone dead, or are most people dead? Are the people remaining zombies that I need to shoot at or hide from? Are there buildings? Will there be snacks?

I really need more information as to the meaning of the "end of civilization as we know it" to come up with a more precise list of my needs.

This is a fairly depressing topic for me. Having Crohn's disease at the level I do, I am completely dependent on modern civilization. I'd probably have a month or two pain-free. Then it'd be constant pain for the year or so I'd have left.

Depending on the situation, I'd stock up on propane, canned food, bows and hunting arrows. Arrows can often be recovered. Mrs. Dar and the kids can learn fletching.

I'd try to get them set up as best I can before I became useless.
