  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I saw this today and it's outstanding. It's worth the time to check it out.

    Flight suit sized to fit over your civvies with the pockets loaded with BOB contents. Store this in a nearly empty backpack and stuff it with items that are always in your truck (mission essentials) and move!
  3. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Ya know, I really, really hoped the Zombie Apocalypse would involve double tapping, but as it is it will be people who I generally like coming to the store to buy medicine and have a chat with Ole Gent about what to do. Generally, I have a few well chosen bits to share, but today I'm feeling a...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    For the sake of discussion let’s say you want to buy a piece of land for a small farm that could double as a bug out location. This would be a weekend getaway for you and your family. A place off the beaten path where you and your family can go to relax. And also a place where you and your...
  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    While doing risk assessment, I personally believe your location to large urban areas should play an important factor. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2413498/The-146-large-counties-HALF-U-S-population-lives.html The largest urban areas nearest my location are Houston Texas, and the...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    While my wife an I are camping at Martin Dies State Park – which is closee to Jasper Texas – I thought this would be a good time to talk about our Bug Out Box. We do not call it a Bug Out Box per say, we call it our camping box. But it would serve either purpose. If some kind of SHTF event...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    My girlfriend and I are looking into buying a bug out location. This hunting cabin is actually a beautiful two story house that is off the grid. There are 4 other homes on the private property, all with survival mind sets. All properties are off the grid and is 2 miles of off roading from the...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I did some searching and really didnt find anything about this. But if you could have an amount of land to live off of after a disaster of some sorts how much do you think would be good? Obviously the more the better but realistically what do you think would be a good amount to have. Currently I...
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Over the years I've been on this site I've seen repeated posts of people talking about heading for the "hills" and "Living off the Land". IMHO it's time to address this in a rational manner. First -Anyone who has to ask, can't, its that simple. If you think it'll hit the fan in the next...
  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I was just thinking back to my Army days in my scout platoon where land navigation was essential to completeing missions and thinking maybe I should share this information as an option for some to get to their BOL in the event you find yourself unable to navigate the roads or better yet, it's...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I just was reading Caseyboy's Survival Post and saw, yet again, the emphasis on a BOL. This inspired me to discuss it. Since a lot of people here have a BOL, and swear by them, let me preface with the fact this is my personal view and you are welcome to your own. I realize and accept the...
  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I thought I would post this poll in relationship to the best and worst states threads. How important is your location to you as a prepper? The scenario is total society/financial meltdown. For whatever reason you can not bug out. Please vote and state your reasons. :)
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Ok, I tried the search function, and did not find this question. (FYI: I really hate how the search function works BTW...) I have noticed in several of the discussions there is a serious weight given to the BOL. For most people, it is pretty much the center of their plan. I would like to...
  14. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Here is my idea and situation and where i am stuck. I have planned out a location that looks very good. its deep enough in the woods to where i could keep shelter and no one would know. I have decided on this location for a few reasons: 1: its right next to a major highway. so i figure it...
  15. Urban Survival
    Here's the Scenario: You live in Los Angeles, only a mile off the Pacific Coast (zip 90292). Your entire family is in Chicago, and they have a BOL located in a nice secluded part of northern Wisconsin...This would be the obvious location where you could find them in a SHTF situation.... How...
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Wasnt sure if this belonged here, anyway, question is, if things got so bad, and you are in a rural area but still have to bug out into woods, how many guns and ammo do you think you would carry on you, and this would be by foot. I would carry M4 with 22 converter bolt and side arm 9mm...
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I live in the Czech Republic and it's quite popular here for people who live in the cities to own a cottage farther out away from the city. Right now I live in an apartment in Prague, but I'm trying to evaluate some options for a BOL and was considering either purchasing some land and building a...
  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Virtually all land is owned, so anywhere you decided to go you will be on someone's property. If half of land owners are like some of those on this forum that have the shoot on sight mentality it will be very dangerous for people bugging out. This video has good sensible advice for the land...
  19. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've seen other threads along this topic that seem to just die out after a few replies... but the subject still looks viable to me. I've been actively prepping for a couple of years after thinking about it for a previous few years. I have a nice "paid for" home on two acres in the Coastal Bend...
