  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I began prepping around 8 years ago. I have accomplished quite a bit. Enough food and water supply to sustain my family of 7 for over a year. Enough guns and ammo to arm my immediate family, and probably my extended family as well. And much more. Also in those 8 years, I've managed to store...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Just a friendly reminder and some encouragement: I've seen a lot of people here say that they could be in better physical shape. I know how that is! And most of us can probably relate to some degree. I was sitting on my couch a few months ago and exercise crossed my mind (I hadn't been...
  3. Ladies Section
    I know there are a few exercise threads on here already, but they are pretty old so I thought I would start a new one. I am always looking for new things to try so what do you ladies do for exercise? this year on my birthday I decided to make exercise a life long habit. It's been going...
  4. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    You would think with the vast amount spent on healthcare in this country, we would be super healthy; the healthiest on the planet. We surely are not. There is big money in keeping us sick and on multiple drugs for life. (There was even an episode of Star Trek on this subject...
  5. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    IMO, being physically fit and quick are much more important than having the best bug out bag, or best battle rifle. A quick look around my local outdoor range, I see a lot of people who are overweight, some on the verge of being morbidly obese, bad posture, super tight fitting clothes. I...
  6. Fitness Blogs
    When I was about 13-14 years old I was skinny, weak, and had just gotten the crap beat out of me at school. Jumped from behind outside of the locker rooms. That was in the middle of 8th grade. The school wanted to suspend me for just being involved in a fight. I didn't even defend myself. My...
  7. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    made me say what the hell, was looking for thoughts and opinions? especially from anybody in medical fields. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/258160.php Kasia Beaver, 33, from Redditch, Worcestershire, England, was diagnosed with exercise-induced angioedema (EIA) and has been told to...
  8. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    I try to stay fit for multiple reasons, including surviving a SHTF situation. I am in good cardiovascular shape, but am not very muscular (I have tried weight lifting, but do not build muscle easily). My question is, how important do you think muscular strength is vs cardiovascular shape? If...
  9. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    I've been playing with my gear and it hit me recently: I should train with my equipment (not just practice with it). When I say train, I mean be active with my gear in different scenarios. For example, I can hike with my ILBE, but can I climb with it or can I run with it at a quick pace and...
  10. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    This belongs on this forum, I think. I have returned to college and for a year I have done very little physically, big mistake. I recently had to do some heard hard heavy outdoor work, the kind I was quite used to a year ago. Now I hurt, my arms hurt, my back hurts, I had not realized that I...
  11. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    For those looking to add some life to running/walking... check out the IOS/Android app Zombies, Run.... its great. A little expensive at $7.99 but if you figure the cost of other work out equipment or gym memberships its not bad. Allot of fun and makes you want to get out.
  12. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    On New Years Eve I had some down time after the wife and kids went to bed. I don't make resolutions but I do set goals or challenges for myself. This year I started writing them down and a sudden dose of reality hit me like a truck. I am a liar. I call myself a survivalist, but I'm 42 years...
  13. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    What do you guys think about exercise after the sh** goes down? on one hand, being in physical condition can do wonders for your ability to function in a long term survival situation, but on the other hand, exercise obviously burns calories, meaning you'll need more food to sustain yourself.
  14. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Hey Guys and Gals, I have started this thread to discover as many realistic ways as possible of heating clean water, on demand. I get hot water from my boiler (bless the men who invented the hot water boiler! Genius!) I think for me that of all the creations of civilisation, clean hot water...
