  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...

    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.

  4. 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...

    Not exactly apocalyptic in scale but a serious health risk to the people in the region. There has been an out break of drug resistant TB in Papua New Guinea. People are not seeking proper health care because they are being forced to go out to the bush in search of food and water. Since this is...

    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...

    How does everyone here plan to deal with health and hygiene issues, especially if you have to stay in your home. I plan to bug in for as long as possible but I am unsure how to deal with rubbish, and human waste. I live in the suburbs so I don't have a long drop, I would also like to avoid going...
  8. General Discussion
    Recently there have been two threads about vaccinating (one being mine) and people have strong feelings about it on both sides. That got me wondering about vaccinations in general and recent events. So here is the question: If they came out with a vaccination to protect against ebola would you...

    This website was pretty interesting so I thought I'd share. The Anti-Vaccination Movement has a body count attached to its name. This website publishes the total number of vaccine preventable illnesses and vaccine preventable deaths that have happened in the United States since this 2007...

    I'm very curious to see what the overall consensus in this forum is when it comes to regular physical training as part of your "prepping" efforts. I've seen numerous so called "preppers" who have great food and water stores, a stockpile of firearms and ammunition, all of the fanciest perimeter...

    ne of the most ignored, or possibly least talked about components of survival is fitness. I used to be skinny, weak, and unable to do more than 10 pushups without struggling, now I can do 60+, run 4 miles in under 30 minutes and do 15 pull ups at once. People need to put more emphasis on fitness...

  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have went through the forums and even used Google advanced search to see about the topic I present. There are plenty talking about preparing medical wise for incidents after shtf while they are bugging out, and getting into shape before hand. Though something I didn't see was anyone talking...

    So I'm looking for a good recipe for nutrition bars that could be made either off grid, or can easily be preserved. What I want to get is something with lots of protein, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and moderate fat. Just something that can keep ya going when you don't have a supermarket...
  18. DIY - Do It Yourself
    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...
  19. 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...
