  1. South African Preppers
    Well after my last trip I decided to make a few changes and the most important one was that my 'Bivi's' just weren't up to the challenge, I've had them since 1990 and they were seriously tired... Not to mention that my First Aid Kit needed to be upgraded, after what happened the last time... I...

    It seems to me, that many people do not have a realistic expectation of TEOTWAWKI. People on prepping forums are for ever purchasing more knives & gadgets. Some have a 42 hour or 72 hour bug-out bag. What makes them think this is the timeline? What if the situation lasts longer, then what do...

    Our group is looking for more members. We practice & teach primitive survival skills & we wish to train Scouts & Rangers. We also wish to form an 18th century militia group. Anyone in the Tamworth, Uralla, Guyra, Glen Innes, Armidale NSW area that is interested, please contact me. Regards, Keith.

    Sometimes you have to hit someone over the head with a 16lb sledgehammer in order to get their attention! A family member of mine contacted me after watching the chaos going on in NY and Jersey, and finally "gets it" now.. :rolleyes: Not having any children myself makes it more difficult for me...
  5. Urban Survival
    I was talking with a prepper friend of mine and we were discussing the pros and cons of using big hotels or vacation resorts as potential bug-in or bug-out locations after wrol or shtf scenarios, and examining the best possible locations. If a catastrophic event occurred, it's my uneducated...

    So, the wife and I were driving around town and we saw an old truck for sale. It's an old Ford F250 Ranger XLT, the wife and I are guessing a '78 or '79. Asking price is $2000. For reference, here's a picture of the truck model, from Wikipedia not of the actual truck. I stopped and knocked on...

    Not sure if I have posted this link here already or not, but if not I highly recommend you go to our group's forum and read this series of articles/posts. They are not mine to use, or I would have posted them here. Regards, Keith. Find in our forum "The Survival Connection"...

    Bugging out is a last resort for me as I'm sure it will be for most of you. That said, if the need should arise and I am limited to what I can carry on my person and on my back, certain compromises must be made. Here are my thoughts on Choosing the Perfect “Bug-Out” Carbine. Any feedback...

    After reading various threads about general preparedness, it made me think about fixing my own "bug-out bucket", or 'grab-and-go bucket' of food similar to what Wise offers except also having some canned foods in addition to the freeze-dried varieties. This way i have a variety of food items...

    Having recently read One Second After by William R. Forstchen, I found myself wondering what I would do, living in Florida, if I were in the same situation. My first thought was that the effects of an EMP would be limited by some degree over the United States and that Countries like Canada, The...
  11. Vehicles & Transportation
    Since i'm a mountainbike enthusiast i believe that mountainbikes would be a most excellent alternative to gas-operated vehicles in a shtf or bug-out scenario for a variety of reasons. There's enough street construction currently happening around here that gridlock is guaranteed in the event of...

    This is a very good definitive thread on bugging. :xeye: http://www.survivalblog.com/2009/06/avoiding_bugging_out_by_steve.html My situation is a little different since I have a BOL which is a farm and a better way to sustain myself, but i think is generally true. :thumb: What do you think...

    What kind of bug out bag (BOB) are you using? Backpack, dufflebag, or something else. The one I use is my companies bullet resistant backpack (level IIIa). The panel only adds 20 ounces additional weight. My wife's has a smaller backpack and adds our stand alone panel (level IIIa) into it...
