  1. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Just as an intro... I had a "traditional" first aid kit (I think I got it from Sportsmans or Cabelas or something) and realized that, while it looked cool and nifty, in this yellow belt loop bag, was mainly a box of 3rd rate chinese specials, with no substance. So I started to do a little...
  2. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    I work about 20 miles from home. Both home and work are about 60 miles from BOL. I am male, 5'-11", 220 lbs (btw that is changing for the lesser) in good health. I need recommendations for some high-quality hiking boots to get me home, and to my BOL if need be. I would wear these daily (office...
  3. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hi, Preppers. I'm looking for some advice from you all. I'm a college student living a 10 hour drive from my family back home. I keep thinking about the worst case scenario if something were to happen and all **** broke loose. I would need to make it from Chicago to South Dakota so I can regroup...
  4. Urban Survival
    I tend to store my GHB in my truck, but in the Texas heat, I find I have to replace items more frequently due to items sometimes getting melted, or deterioration due to heat. My question is this: Has anyone considered buying some cheap (maybe even a Walmart brand style) cooler that might be...
  5. Firearms General Discussion
    Hey SB, So my truck and my car have had a GHB each for awhile now, but I've wanted to be able to tool up when I go away. My day to day work week doesn't allow that, my car is subject to random searches as a govt. contractor. So for the weekends or trips, I have come up with throwing in an...
  6. Urban Survival
    A couple of weeks ago I went to a friends house for his kids birthday, I was planning on spending a couple of hours there, I ended up spending the night because the sky opened up and flooded the neighborhood. There were about 30 people at the house, none of us had a vehicle that could get...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have a question for those of you who travel frequently for business: do you have a dedicated GHB that you take with you? I have a GHB that I keep in my truck at home, however it contains things which could definitely get me in trouble in certain states (such as NY and CA), so I don't take...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I picked up an Ontario SPAX 16 from a milsurp store the other day, and I am trying to determine if I should put it in my Car's GHB. Background: My Truck's GHB does have an 18" camp axe in it, (the kind from home depot), so it doesn't look out of place. It's accompanied by a chainlink saw...
  9. Vehicles & Transportation
    I will be traveling (driving)tomorrow from The North West to a southern state alone. I was wondering what any of you that make similar journeys keep with you as far as firearms? My thought is a G-17 locked in the vehicle (F-250) and carrying a G-19 concealed. Of course plenty of mags and ammo...

    My PSK is the core system of the two bags that I use, my Wilderness Bag and my Go & Get Home Bag. Designed to be easily moved from bag to bag as needed, or carried on its own. If not in a pack, my PSK is designed to be a belt carry system. When I drop my pack, the PSK goes on the belt. I have a...

    I have this kit in the get-home bag (GHB) in the back of my car, but it's possible that I can't get back to my car in the event of an earthquake or other. My work backpack has several EDC items, but no small medical kit. Recommendations?

    It seems the BPS containers may be just as bad as the BPA containers. http://gizmodo.com/study-shows-bpa-free-chemical-could-be-just-as-bad-for-1679220401

    So I know the answers will be very situational but because i'm new and value the knowledge of my peers i'm putting this out there. How do you all pack your bags? Any advice on how you would pack this bag? Here is a link to a picture of the bag...

    Began reading about Prepping last autumn. Been reading here and a few other places. I'm a 26 year old who works 40 miles from home. At worst there is a bike or two I could borrow to make the trek home. Home and work is in the Mid-Atlantic in a CCW unfriendly state. My Office GHB was my...

    Hello all, I have a question about inhalers. I am surrounded by loved ones with Asthma (Girlfriend, brother, mother, and best friend), and I often exercise and hike with my girlfriend. She never carries her inhaler, so I would like to throw one in my medical pouch in my EDC bag (Which is also my...
