Why it's important to carry cash. 🇺🇸 "You would have no money outside of what is in your wallet or safe. Our entire finance industry is run by electricity. Most people have no clue that the average bank branch has less than $10,000 on hand at a given time. I wanted to pay cash ($9,000) for an older EMP-proof Jeep a while back and my bank told me I would have to schedule that size withdrawal in advance and it would take the bank three days to get it. If you can’t get quick access to your money at the bank pre-SHTF, what makes you think you’re going to get your money out after things have fallen apart? My bet is that the banks aren’t even going to open their doors once the grid goes down. They know people are panicking and they don’t have the cash on hand to give to them (most of whom will want to drain their accounts). Besides, every bank I know of uses computers and electricity to perform bank transactions. There is no electricity, remember? You were a millionaire before the crash? Not anymore. Don’t bet on a single bank opening its doors for business. Also, don’t rely on storing up large amounts of gold and silver for a grid- down scenario. No one is going to trade you precious food for your gold or silver coins. It will be years before there is any semblance of normal commerce where you can use precious metals to barter for tools or food. I would recommend spending whatever cash on hand you have in the first few days getting as much food as possible. Within a week, once store owners (the very few with heavy security that haven’t been looted already) figure out that the power isn’t coming back on, your money is worthless. A hungry person isn’t going to trade you a can of beans for a thousand dollars." me otherwise you’ll probably not use it very often." 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Credit @griddownprepper from their great book Survival Theory: A Preparedness Guide by Jonathan Hollerman #bugoutbag Urban Survival, Survival Food, Camping Survival, Survival Prepping, Emergency Preparedness, Survival Skills, Survival Fishing, Survival Cache, Emergency Kits
