I'M NOT A “PREPPER” - IS BUNKER DAYS FOR ME?+
There are elements of prepping and self-reliance that are applicable to anyone. You don't have to be a “Doomsday Prepper” to want to be better equipped to handle the next natural disaster. Even those of us who simply love the outdoors can find ourselves in sudden and unexpectedly dangerous scenarios should things not go as planned. So it's best to be prepared just in case. Whether you're a hardcore prepper, avid hunter, backwoods trekker, or just someone looking for basic tips on home preparedness for the family - there are Bunkers here to help address your needs.
Like any craft, prepping tactics and survival skills need to be exercised and practiced to stay sharp. You can always learn more about your potential situation, refine your existing inventory, and enhance your current plans. Join the Bunker Days community and keep your Prepping muscles flexed!
WHAT ARE BUNKERS?+
Bunkers are the place for group communications where people can voice their opinions and enhance best practices with like-minded users. Every person and situation is different, so you will find Bunkers covering a broad spectrum of topics including Natural Disasters, Sustainable Gardening, Tactical Firearms, and Preparing for the Apocalypse. And if you can't find what you are looking for, or just want a smaller setting to share your specific ideas with family and close friends, create your own Bunker and drive the conversation.
WHAT IS MY INVENTORY TOOL?+
The ultimate checklist and organization tool, our Inventory tool allows you to upload and manage all of your gear. Set expiration date alerts on water and food and assign items to your SIPs as you work towards completion of your plan. When your supplies become depleted through use or expiration, purchase your replenishments directly through the Bunker Days platform and we will automatically add those purchases to your inventory.
WHAT IS A BOARD?+
Boards are digital photo boards where you can post photos of ideas or items you like, own, or wish to include in your planning. You can create Boards for anything and everything. Add kukris and hatchets to your Blades Board, or sling instructions to your Tac Gear Board. Or, you can subscribe to other Boards that interest you and see what others are recommending. See something you want? Use our Stash feature to purchase items directly from Boards.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO STASH AN ITEM?+
The best part about Boards is Stashing. Any item you see that has this icon in the top right of the image indicates that the item can be integrated into your Inventory. Whether you want to Stash an item you already own, or purchase the product directly, it is a great way to automatically fill up your inventory.
WHAT IS A SIP?+
Situation and Inventory Plan. Derived from our philosophy, SIPs are the ultimate tool for increasing and maintaining preparedness for your unique set of circumstances. Use our flexible framework to define your own situation, gear up with the right inventory, and work towards completion of your plan. Or, if you see a SIP posted from another user that you like - File it directly and use that as a baseline. SIPs sync with your Inventory and any missing items can be purchased directly on the platform so you can ensure you always have the inventory you need to meet your preparedness goals.
CAN I PURCHASE GEAR?+
Yes, there are multiple ways to purchase gear on Bunker Days. You can search and buy products from our extensive catalog at The Depot. You can also purchase items directly from Boards, Posts and SIPs. All purchases on Bunker Days will automatically be stashed to your Inventory Management Tool.
