    Hello, I am 20 yr old male, living in USA. I have no job, no car, school isn't particularly interesting, and I have little interest in getting a "normal" job. I am much more interested in being in full control of my own life. Not having some boring and menial office job where I work to pay all...

    Ha so I don't have a credit card, for maybe obvious reasons. But I have ammo I'd love to sell while the market is right. Looked into gunbroker, armslist, ar15.com, gunsamerica, gun auction, buysellammo Nothing will let you list without either a fee or entering a valid credit card. I can try...

    Let me just say I'm going to make this short and sweet. Heres how it goes. first I'm not on medication. So no funny remarks please. I have been followed a fugitive probably has more freedom. I can't even breath. You would think way more by the way I'm being stalked. They are strangers I have...

    I thought it might be useful to have a thread on everyone's best prepping advice. There are many on these boards who have decades in prepping, and some only have a few days. However, everyone has learned something of value that can be shared with the rest of the boards! So, what's your best bit...

    Greetings, I would like to get some outside help on my BOB. I have had this set up for a few months and while I feel like everything in there is useful and has come in handy on bug out trips, the bag seems to be a little too full and heavy for my taste. Don’t get me wrong, I take it on daily...

    I didn't want to start a new thread. But all threads on this topic were from 2009. So here it is... I own 2 of the Modular Sleep Systems. They came with a patrol bag that provides cold weather protection from 35 to 50 °F (1.67 °C to 10 °C). The intermediate bag provides cold weather protection...

    I got thinking about this today. In a SHTF situation, if your lucky or prepared enough to have a weapon, especially if you have been displaced or must leave in a hurry, you most likely won't have a cleaning kit. My thought is to give people a list of weapons, especially pistols that will fire...

    So I'm looking to get my dad the beginnings of a BOB/GHB for father's day. Obviously the place to start is the bag itself, right? I've got two options from Amazon, and I'm not sure which would be better. I know they both have their merits, but I'm not sure about drawbacks, etc. So...
  11. General Discussion
    So I've asked questions on forums and such and I've gotten a huge long list of extensive replies, which is awesome don't get me wrong, but I don't really know what to do with it. Should I just summarize their thoughts and write it down? I don't know how to process it all and apply it. Any help...

    I'm relatively new to prepping, but I've done a decent amount of research (I'm not going in blind, at least). I'm wondering about the basics. -What's the best water storage method, or what are things NOT to do/common mistakes? -I have started sealing food in Mylar bags - what's the best way to...

Anyone from the...

    Spent 30 mins last night talking with a librarian that has lived in this area since 1970. She's known me since I moved into this little pond. Last night her words set my mind to spinning, so I thought I would pass them on. I've been selling critters to pay for some unexpected bills and she...

    I found a 35 acre tract at a price I cannot afford to walk away from. The only red flag so far is the shape. 400 feet x 3900 feet. So.....yeah its a rectangle. The tract next to it was for sale last year but pulled from the market. My thought would be to buy the tract, then hunt down the...

    I love Craigslist. I love being prepared. I have NO idea how to use A to get to B. Are there any of you out there that use Craigslist for preps? I'm caught in a rut. All I do is scan the Sporting Goods section and when I try to do a generic search I get tripped up. Anyone out there have a...

    For redundancy, I am looking for a good rocket stove. I know of a few already and I am aware that you can make one (which I don't want to do - at the moment anyway). What I am looking for is some advice from people who have actually used the model they are talking about...quality, weight...

    I'm about to get a dehydrator and I would like to make sure I get a good one. I can only afford to spend around $50 on it. What do y'all think about the different ones available? I don't really have one in mind either...I kinda like the clear ones :D: but only because I can watch it happen.
