    I'm constantly adding ideas off this site to my disaster bag, actually bags. I have a couple old laptop bags and have some split by what might happen. I'm north of Seattle and aside from social upheavals, we have earthquakes, tidal waves and volcanos to worry about. So I have a food bag...

    Nothing fancy, but since I've been in the prepper movement for a while, I thought it best to try out my new camp stove and mess kit. Using my aluminum BOB mess kit, the water boiled in about 90 seconds and I had reconstituted chili 10 minutes later. I need to make it a point to test and push...

    My preferred style of canteen is the US Army style, though I really don't like that it's plastic. It makes the water taste terrible. I've been looking for a stainless steel canteen that's kidney shaped and finally found one. It's perfect except for one thing-it's only 3/4 the size. The...

    We need a mess kit -the folding frying pan, cup, etc in a kit like the boy scouts have - only I don't like the cheapo ones we can buy in the stores. Where can we get a better one? There is an army surplus store here but it doesn't have any.
