    I have a buddy that is trying to get a preparedness store up and running. It will be a lot of online business, but there will be a store front as well. For starting small, what would you think would be the top items that people would want to see and touch before they buy? Here is a short list...

    I live in Southern California and there doesn't seem to be much as far as prepper stores. I would think some new ones would have popped up with all the mainstream media coverage but that doesn't appear to be the case, at least here. Checked out a military surplus store today that was big but...

    It seems to me that Wal-mart is missing a piece of the pie by not devoting an aisle or two to survival and prepping supplies. They could have cans of dehydrated food, other long shelf life foods, buckets, mylar, Oxygen absorbers, any and all items for your bug out bag or place, etc. There is a...

    Ever wonder why companies make items targeting groups of people that are just crap? This bothers me, as I am one of those quick to run out and buy something, then find out latter that I got cheated. So lets compile a list of crap NOT to buy. 1) Super duper Giant Rambo, Pirate, Tactical...

    Like many other members here on this forum I had to deal with a hurricane this past weekend. I was lucky this time and the impact was rather light, where I live, with the exception of some rain and a few hours of strong wind gusts. Three days before the storm I took a trip to the local walmart...

    I was talking to a buddy from the east coast I have been trying to get ready for over 20 years to no avail. The earthquake has him really rattled and with the economy its all in his mind at once. We meet up twice a year for a hobby we share with other close friends. So I just get of the phone...

    Lets say that you have $150 to spend on survival gear, or survival supplies, what would you buy? Here is the situation, my wife and I are making a special trip to Beaumont, Texas sometime soon. While we are in town, I thought about stocking up on some supplies. A couple of weeks ago I got...

    I'm new to the forum and new to survival as a practice. In trying to wrap my head around where to start and how to build my chache of supplies, I would like to ask those of you what you would consider to be the core essential survival items? I say "core", in that what you would build upon these...

    Fathers Day is coming up. So, I am thinking of new things to add to my bag. Why do I want to add it? No reason. It's not like I am going to depend on any of it. I just want it. Believe me, I am for the most part a TechnoPhobe. However here are some ideas I came up with. First would be for my...

    I promise that they were already dead when I arrived, I felt guilty going through their stuff, honest I did, But on the bright side, if I did not get it, someone else will. My wife and I went to an estate sale today. I scored a coleman sleeping pad, cold weather gloves and a solar powered...

    Okay so I think I am off to a good start but thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. I am now worried about an end of the world situation. I think spiritual prep will be more important for that. I live in Indiana so I figure tornadoes, winter storms, and unemployment are top threats. Outside shot of...

    I need some help. Please read where my thoughts have been. Initially, I thought "just purchase 6 months of MRE's", then I read about the negatives - aluminum and constipation for long term. Then, Mountain House. Where would I get boiling water in a "REAL" disaster (earthquake, New Orleans or...
