    Locally where I live we had a couple of thugs rob a jewelry store and flee to another county. These guys may have been responsible for a string of robberies all up and down the east coast. During their flight in a black SUV, they were identified and followed by county police, and state police...

    No doubt this will stir up some controversy, but I see and personally know a few people that spend thousands of dollars modding 4WD vehicles and essentially turning them into battle wagons. While I can't deny that the vehicles are very bad a$$, I just see too many "what if's". If you live...

It is likely that you will overlook something...

    I am not a BOL person. However, I did have an idea. It seems to me that many vacation rental properties and time shares are listed on the internet. These are usually corporate owned places and do not have permanent residents. If you are looking for a BOL in a fairly nice place relatively close...

    So I was at a conference yesterday and one of the sessions dealt with disaster preparedness planning. So I sat in a room with 20 other people and the director of Homeland Security, a few White House staff, a slew of FEMA upper level managers. The room was filled with disaster planners from...

    I'm new to the forum and wanted to get a little advice on a plan of mine. I'm a minimalist with an interest in primitive survivalism. While I am confident in my ability to survive with a very small kit and no fixed home base, I just wanted to know how the rest of you guys feel about this, and...

    Survival preparations need to be done in an effective order (reading/studying, purchasing, storing). Thus, we need a set of priorities. I would like to propose the following prioritized steps to take in emergency preparations: 1. In an emergency, our very basic level of needs are: A.) Air...

    We have a very close extended family of roughly 30 people. In case of emergency they all want our house as the go to house. Until recently we were fine with that, but then my husband and I starting thinking, what about long term survival, there's no way we could do it with so many people. We...

    Starting 7 years ago in my efforts to prepare for the most likely disaster I expected a Nuclear Disaster, but the types of nuclear disaster I counted on was either Nuclear war or a dirty bomb/suitcase nuke. But upon that I also expected Earthquakes and started to prepare for those too. I live...

    My girlfriend and I had a significant talk earlier yesterday where I expressed my deep concerns about commitment to her that she did not reciprocate but told me that in time she will grow to want the same things I do, and that I should "know that she love's me and it won't change." In a child...

    I know many many examples from personal experience, but I wanted to hear why YOU thought the wealthy do not prepare for a depression or natural disaster. In my line of work I would guesstimate less than 1% of the Upper Class prepare even in the least bit. Food stocks that would last them 3...
