  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So I have been searching online for weeks for a BOL when it occurred to me that I have conflicting criteria for what I am looking for. Part of the problem is money (isn't it always?). I was hoping to find something $40K or under, but expanded my search to $60K. That would be a loan. I wonder...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've just finished reading the 'SHTF and Pregnancy' thread. There were some very good thoughts and opinions on the matter of having kids knowing the state that the world is currently in and that things are not getting any better. But, for those family's out there who already have a baby or...

    What's your plan for the home you leave behind?? I’ve seen a lot of people write about having a BOL Bug Out Location. We have one too. My question is…. What do you plan to do with the house and property that you leave behind? Write it off as a loss? Just leave it to be ransacked? Try and...

    I've been looking to try to get a map for helping to determine the best BOL according to the activities of the 'golden horde.' (see definition) I haven't been able to find one, but what I have found that seems that it might work in the general sense is Dark Sky Finder...

  8. General Discussion
    I got a PM from another poster, he brought up a good question. Lets see what ideas others may have. That is hard to do. Most of this state is forest, and privately owned. It does change hands and it sells for low prices [per acre], but it is mostly in 100+ acre parcels. If a parcel gets...
  9. Urban Survival
    I know many people have weapons and most don’t get to shoot them that much, if they don’t have a concealed carry permit many have not had not much if any training at all. Yet many of these people have these weapons for home protection. That is where the problem begins. You buy a gun, you...

  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    At the risk of sounding contradictory to the whole idea of being ready with a BOL, I am considering what canI prepare for in case I end up being a refugee. Consider these factors. I am based in New York city. My preferred plan is to bug in and find ways to sustain a small family in a small...

    Hi Guys, pardon my ignorance here. I've been getting a "gist" of what the Bug out bag means. Here's my stab at it. The bag you grab, when you have to leave at a moments notice. It is meant to sustain you or give you the tools to sustain yourself, till you can get to a BOL (Bug out location)...
