what if a newbie shows up at your campfire/church/community cookout/website.

something has clicked that things may not be as they should be and just saw the light.

and you know him and wife and trust them tremendously.... so newbie sits down with a coke and asks...
what do we need to do first? not, "what could happen?" but what category of items/needs should we deal with first?
2 items have been discussed recently... both posters thought they were important in order of importance... ( i'll yield to my senior, or just maybe i got the order wrong, but that's not important for this exercise!) the order of importance may depend on what/where you live! this is sort of an "old school" question!!

so i'll restate them
1. defense items - weapons
2. water

3. ?
