    A few weeks ago my cousins puppies got into the chicken yard where they killed a Golden Wyandotte rooster, buff orpington hen and dominique hen. Two other hens were also injured. Both hens were recovering well, then one of the hens developed an infected spot next on her body next to her leg...

    The scenario that I have in mind has to do with the SEVERAL feral cats around my family property. As bad as it may sound to some of our more sensitive members, the abundant cat populace could provide a plentiful (and gullible) meat source in a SHTF scenario. My only concern with these critters...

    So I was digging in my cabinet today and going through stuff and I decided to try on some camos I have, see what I have and need etc. For reference in the last 18 months I have lost over 85 pounds with diet, exercise etc. So none of my gear fits, it made me think most of us are carrying some...

    This post was inspired by a post I read the other day on here about bartering. I took all that was said about skills and made a list of what skills would be good to have and ensure self preservation (example, the doctor is probably going to be pretty safe from harm), and a list of seeds I would...

    As a newbie I am culling all the information I can to best start prepping. My question is for my family members i.e. wife and kids. I am in thte millitary and have extensive knowledge in weapons and area/site security. Outside of gear and rations prepping, what would be the logical skills...

    I find myself stressing about this. I hate consumables. I hate running out of things. However in a long term survival situation what do you bring the most of, beans or bullets? What about things like salt and pepper? I know people put away alot of food but when that is gone, then what? What...

    In a complete collapse of society how long do you plan to survive? I myself would like to think I would be out there for a long time but I doubt that would be the case... What do you think???
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I started doing this about a week ago, I went out to smoke at work the other day and to my dismay my zippo flint took a crap on me. About to throw a fit i looked down and saw a smashed cheap plastic dollar store lighter like the one you get 10 in a pack. I picked it up and took it apart taking...

    I know you can mail order this but can you find it locally? Is this something you can get at Walgreens or a GNC? Thanks McLOVIN

    Hello all, I've noticed already on this site that many people have fairly secure BOL in set up for when a SHTF situation arises (i.e. homes set up with food stocks, defense, etc.) But for many of us we are going to need to be mobile. I have the basic survival gear I need but no food stocks over...

    Newbie question so please be nice<smile>. I * get it* about generators for a short term power outage. But in a long term SHTF situation, weeks or months with no power, how do you expect to get fuel? I have serious propane tanks for heat for the house but even they would only power a generator...

    What would you do if you found out without a doubt that the S was HTF tomorrow country wide? The general public didnt know, and everything was still availble. In the next 24 hours what would you do?
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Lets say your going to go to the local feed and fertilizer store to buy some beans and peas, what kind would you buy? And how much would you buy? These peas / beans will be stored in your freezer. These are for your stockpile, and not for immediate use. Pinto beans - high in protein Purple...

    Hi So I don't know if it's been talked about, but I am new here and wanted to know what everyone is doing for the case of water if there is a shortage or an EMP or Solar Storm and nothing comes from the faucet anymore. I was looking at getting a Katadyn they seem to be the best, and just found...
  15. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    I was wondering, what would be some reasons to hold on to important legal documents (such as passports, birth certificates e.t.c) in the event of a EOTWAWKI situation?

    Say SHTF and you gotta go to your BOL. What do you wear? my choice would probably be my old bdu uniforms, its good for all conditions. That wouldn't be a problem for many people at all. Say you don't get found and you make it to your BOL. You're sweaty, and nasty from your hike and wanna change...

    what will you do if... lets says IF...a huge solar flare occurs and it wipes out all electrical grids in america and other countrys around the world. that means all electrical devices ever used/invented will no longer work. that would mean modern technology would be forced to go back 150 years...
  19. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've been contemplating the possibility of the water supply running low in urban areas in an economic crash. I have been considering the possibility of another economic crash, an economic crash bigger than the stock market crash... like 10 times bigger maybe. As many of you probably know we...
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I was wondering if SHTF would it be a good idea to form a larger group with members here? Strength in numbers! We can all decide on a location. Maybe someone here has a large tract. Everyone must have something to contribute, electrical, mechanical, farming, hunting, trapping, marksmanship...
