    Not sure if this is the right place to put this, but I've been playing with different Night Vision stuff for a while and wanted to start sharing some videos and information stuff since so much of what's out there is more sales plugs and hype than anything else. Anyway here's the link to my...

  5. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I am trying to complete a DIY for a home security system, Cameras, Window Alarms, Door Locks, Window Film, Doorbell Camera, etc. For the window alarms I went with the Doberman Security Mini Window Alert https://amzn.to/2urwWrc . I know that these are not a magic talisman, but combined with...
  6. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Hunting season has arrived and everyone around here is keeping a close eye on their dogs. Was at the feed store and they had beautiful orange safety collars for $9-$10 bucks. Instead of spending 50+ bucks on five new store bought collars, I ordered supplies for $10.86 online and have enough...
  7. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Had some tinker time on my hands and thought to make a coffee can stove. Works really well and for someone with no plans and sketches i thought it turned out real nice. With stove pipe cement to seal the gaps, it runs real good. No backdraft at all. Have to make better legs as the stove is...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So I've read number of threads on BOB &a INCH kits, and some very detailed lists of what to have. What I'd like to entertain is "How to be unobtrusively prepared", aka, 'concealed carry' for the prepper. E.g., perhaps replacing your clothing pulls (hood strings, etc.) with paracord; having a...
  9. DIY - Do It Yourself
    So about a year ago I picked up about 6-8 yrds of MARPAT camo that I thought was ultralight silnylon. I plan to make an ultralight pack cover. Tarp and a few other things. I noticed that this seems to be 2nds from whoever makes the this fabric. It seems to be ripstop but it's not water proof...

    Hello all, I've been looking at DIY greenhouse plans so I can store my babies under a protected patio for upcoming dormancy (I live in the Rogue valley in Oregon so our winters are cold). I also live in a townhome/apartment in the middle of the city (not for long!) and don't have much room to...

  13. Vehicles & Transportation
    (Note: I tried posting this 10 min ago, but I was knocked off line. Apologies if it's duplicated.) I'm preparing for leaving the metro and moving up north to a property I have. It's very rural, so I would like to add a second battery to my Chevy Silverado 1500 CC. At the time I purchased...
  14. Knives, Swords & Axes
    I managed to get my hands on an old decorative waki, looks at least 15 years old. Its a cheap peice, but i was bored over the weekend so i restored the blade. It came up pretty nice, i put an edge on it and oiled it as its not stainless steel. This gives me hope that its not chinese crap. Also i...
  15. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    So it's getting to be that time again. We moved into our new house last June and dragged along our whole garden in plastic pots with reasonable success given the late start. Unfortunately the tomatoes and peppers were a disaster because we hit frost before we had many change to red. This year...

    Anybody have good links for DIY smelter plans? I have a few that seem needlessly complicated, was hoping to find something more straightforward.. I would really like to get this prep done as i believe it would be invaluable for recycling scrap metal into repurposed tools
  18. New Member Introduction
    Does anybody have a good source for decent clothing patterns? I've found wool blankets on the cheap, and I'm interested in making some rugged pants and probably a jacket layer or a poncho liner with hood and two sided pocket. Also looking for ideas for a base layer on a budget. I remember...
  19. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Until earlier this year, had no interest in YouTube because at the time I thought there was no way to download/keep music for example. Then brother told/showed me YouTube downloader and since then, been downloading a lot of prepper and non-prepper stuff to watch later and then practice in doing...
