    The Coronavirus is in Australia, & expected to peak within the next three months. What preparations are you making if any? What are your plans if the coronavirus gets too close to home or your place of work? Keith.

    A few weeks ago a friend of mine - yes, I have friends in real life - called and asked if I would cook for a fishing tournament. I said yes. The fishing tournament was going to be at Lake Sam Rayburn here in Southeast Texas. The pit was pulled to location Friday. Friday evening I cooked some...

    My parents and younger siblings moved to New York recently, about a half hour from the "Big Apple" itself. I live in Indiana and have some preps and SHTF plans but I am still a novice. How do I talk to my parents about having evacuation routes in case of a disaster? NYC is the LAST place you...

    My girlfriend and I are considering moving to NH to start a family. This comes after years of research into other states. This is based on our desire for good education, low taxes/cost of living, 2a rights, access to biomedical employment for my girlfriend (Mass), and reasonable driving distance...

    This week, I picked my son up from pre-school and I noticed that his 'extra' clothes were out of season. When we got home, I repacked him some warmer cold weather clothes that are just a bit too big. That got me thinking... This year, during holiday sales, I think I'm going to go and pick-up...

    How long has it been since you checked your kids' bug out bag? And your own? So tonight, I was putting away my new rifle when I glanced at my son's awesome Monsters Inc BOB. I started to go on with business but then realized with the changing seasons, I should make sure it was up to snuff...

    Hello For years I have been looking to join like minded people with no luck. A group or a family that has ample land with an ample water supply. There are a lot of well meaning, going to or fixing to groups and individuals out there. I'm retired and worked construction and maintenance (not...

    Wouldn't it be nice to have a stockpile of antibiotics at home for your family in case of a SHTF situation? Now you can! Oregano is a natural antibiotic and antihistamine. There are no adverse side effects and your body will not build up a immunity to it. 15 bucks on amazon you can buy 1000...

    1. Would you be interested in some kind of smallish event (I'm talking e-z up shades and such at a public park like Old Settlers Park off of hwy 79, or the smaller one by IKEA on IH35 north, if it stays open for a while) with a dozen or more speakers, displays, some activities, and if they can...

    Actually, I picked up 15 Bottle of KiO3 for Christmas this year, and 90% of my shopping was done! :D: This thread is a little late, but why can't the gift of preps be given year round? Why do this for your family or friends? Especially if they don't understand, or they laugh, or they're...

    Was recently thinking about "prepping" and how it's becoming more and more mainstream, yet many still think you're crazy. Then I found this on the GOVERNMENT'S own webpage and it gave me pause. The fact that the gov't recommends preppeing should let us know it's not too crazy. A good use of...

    Are you related to any famous people and are we distant cousins? I am starting this thread because in December 2010 I subscribed to ancestry.com and started researching my family tree. Until then I was convinced that my family tree didn't have many branches on it, and that somewhere in the...
