    I've been fortunate enough to score two free generators in the past ten years, from people who no longer wanted them. One was still in the box, the other never used. One is a small, harbor freight--same size as their tailgater. The other is a larger, Meijer exclusive brand Both work, I guess...

    It's a rare prepping household that doesn't have a gas lantern and fuel stored for an emergency. Light's a handy thing to have. Same with portable stoves for heating victuals. I discovered a Facebook forum called the 'Antique & Vintage Coleman Lantern & Stove Collectors'. I've learned a lot...

    Title says it all, what is the best military surplus sleeping bag? How do we define best? By a cost:comfort ratio. Since the 1990s, I have wanted a British Pattern 58 sleeping bag. There are some on Ebay in England at a reasonable price. But, before I buy one, I wanted to ask if there was...

    In the prepping community, there is a lot of focus on stoves for a bug out bag, while stoves for events such as natural disasters are overlooked. A stove for an individual bug out bag is different than a family sized stove. Do you need a two burner store, one burner stove, propane fuel, liquid...

    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...

    I was doing some google searches for a good 2 man tent, when I came across several stores in the UK selling coleman tents. Do a search for those same tents in the USA, and nothing comes back. Take the Coleman Bedrock two man tent for an example. I have never even heard of the Coleman Bedrock...

    There are lots of cheap, small flashlights out there. Looking for recommendations for a reasonably priced quality small lightweight flashlight with relatively long battery life. It will be for my BOB bag emergency use only. Thanks in advance.

    I had to give up trying to locate the re-folding how-to & called Coleman. In a short while I got an email with an attachment - exactly what I needed. I could remove it from the attached hood that converts to the carry bag, but when it came down to returning it, I was at a loss I didn't see...

No problem due to the 2 circuit nature of the generator. Even cleaning my pool of leave with a Nautilus. Money well spent. MAde me a...

    Been scoping out some ice chests / coolers and don't know squat about who makes a good cooler. Been looking at Igloo and Coleman upgraded models (like the 'Marine' versions), but would like to see more and get some opinions before committing to a purchase......I only want to do this once, so...

    Hey all, I've had hot water on demand system on my 'to get list' for quite some time now and think I want to pick one up in the next few months for camping this year. I know their not necessary and from some of the searches I did here on "hot water" there are other options but this seems...

    Was looking thru the older posts in hopes of finding this and kinda gave up. I've got some good preps for food, now I need a way to cook them. Does anyone have any experience they can share for a good multi-fuel stove? What's the most readily available/salvageable kind of fuel out there? What...

    I am going to be looking for a 2 person, 3 season tent for when winter ends. Water proof is a must, and I am not trying to break the bank. Thanks for the recommendations.

    Three days ago our fridge freezer decided to kick the bucket and go to the big freezer grave yard in the sky. The first major panic was keeping my Dads meds cool, but a wonderful neighbour came to the rescue and put it in her fridge for us. The second problem, was locating the freezer stuff...
