So i have decided to invest in a bug out vehicle and after lots of research i have narrowed it down to a diesel station wagon made between 1975 and 1985. I like these because they are generally more affordable cause lets face it...nobody want them, and for fuel efficiency, gas tank size, EMP...
I've finally started to solidify the list of contents for my bob. At the beginning I decided to use an old duffel I had laying around for the pack until I knew what I had to store, and then I would figure out what I needed in a bag. I've also tried out a few with different...
When you click on go to last unread post in a thread it doesn't work and all I get is a blank page. Anyone else having issues? I'm on firefox and it did update earlier today, but it worked this morning. Its only been in the last hour or so this has come up.
I may have the opportunity to become a Sheriff Deputy this summer and I've been thinking long and hard about sidearms. It's the department's policy to carry at least one backup gun in addition to the primary. I plan on carrying my primary (probably a Glock 19) in a strong side holster in both...

They said Listerine works as a bug repellent.
Anybody ever heard of this?
If that's the case, one could ditch the bug repellent and
carry some Listerine which would be a multi-purpose item
(mouthwash [duh], bug spray, cut/scratch disinfectant...

Standard Large ALICE pack with Frame and MOLLE waistbelt
First pocket (large right pocket) is my primary cookset. This includes a cup, matches, lighter, firesteel, 450g Butane/Propane gas and stove...
My fiancee and I are planning on buying a spot of land and building a small cabin to live in, and using the land for gardening and raising livestock. Inasmuch, this would ideally be both our home, and our BOL. I guess you can say we're both pretty much PO'd at society, and we want to bug out and...
Hi, I am new to survival and I am starting to become more aware of reasons why it should be done and I have been thinking about where a good bug out location could be nearish to my home.
I have thought of forests, reserves and such but then I had the thought of a reservoir. It had plenty of...

What's a BOB, you say? What's a BIB? Well, BOB and BIB are acronyms for Bug Out Bag and Bug In Bag, respectively. In case of disaster, man-made or otherwise, you need to get you and...
Attached are two images of my 72 Hour Pack (front and back) and below is the content list. I have put this bag together after much consultation from this website and I am not on a huge budget and at an inconvenient age where not everything is legal for me to purchase/own...
What do people really think might actually cause an TEOTWAYKI type situation? War? EMP? Peak Oil? Disease? Population pressure? Water Shortage? Gas prices?
I am very curious what others think. I think it will be something related to population pressure, or peak oil.
I honestly don't think any...

(knife 2 utility here)
(fighting knife 1 here extra)
(knife 1 goes here...
I currently have a British DPM 45 litre rucksack which is excellent but I wish to purchase an additional pack, as I require a secondary bag.
I have seen this pack: http://www.uktactical.com/acatalog/3_Day_Pack.html which is affordable, yet looks good. Does anyone have any reviews about this...

I recently bought the Campingaz Micro Bluet stove and the CV270 cartridge that connects to the stove. What is the safest way to store it long term?
For that matter would you advise storing compressed gas like this?
Anyone offer any insight to the M1 and how it offers protection. I found a mint condition M1 genuine helmet and plastic inner helmet in my garage today. Useful for post SHTF and TEOTWAKI?
Would helmets be a good idea?
Your suggestions and advice please :D thankyou in advance :)
Been working on my bag(s) for a while now and just got finished with the bag I put together for my parents. I wanted something they could throw in the camper shell when they went on a road trip. Something they could use if they got stranded, lost or what have you. I hope this will...
