    What is your SHTF last resort rifle and ammo? At the back of my ammunition storage closet, on the bottom shelf, are two ammo cans filled with 7.62x39. More commonly used calibers are towards the front of the closet - 223 Remington, 9mm, 45acp, 22 long rifle, 30-30 Winchester, 308 Winchester...

    Looking to network and set up/join a mutual assistance group in the central/northern California area. My wife an I are in the Sacramento area. We don't have children and are outdoor enthusiasts. We both work in the medical field for a major medical group. The purpose of this group would be to...

    Let's talk about the best places to find hands on information related to prepping. My main sources are: Locally owned farm supply stores - I do just about all of my business through Circle Three Feed in Jasper Texas. The owner works there and is available to answer questions. To her I am...

    My wife and I are packing up to move, ask me anything.
  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Lets say the public was given a 1 week notice before the start of a major global conflict. Rarely does that kind of advance knowledge leak out to the public. For the sake of discussion lets say for once the public knows what is going to happen a week ahead of time. One of the incidents I am...

    Why have I seen no Bisquick presented as part of prepping storage?

    How safe is the water source at your Bug Out Location? Currently, when we stay at the camp we have to either filter water from a nearby creek, or use water from a very old hand dug well. The old well is becoming less and less reliable, so its time to drive a new well. There is a saying I like...

    I want to package some food in Mylar bags, with oxygen absorbers and then seal the bag with hot iron. Would like to know if the following products are safe to put in the mylar bags and how long will they last in the bags. Lets say they will generally expire in 1 year, how much longer will they...

    I cut my foot pretty good this weekend. It's about 1.25 long and .25 wide right on the pad of my foot. That's what I get for drinking without shoes on... I know better than that. Anyway, I couldn't find any bandages big enough in the medicine cabinet and had stocked up on a bunch of first aid...

    Not to steal the fire from any other First Aid Kit threads, but i want to talk about minimalist ones. Least ammount of gear possible. I used to carry around a little bag that had all of the doo dads and whatnots that "should" be in a FAK, but I wanted to scale it down. I have recently started...

    Ok so I’ve been doing a lot of research about first aid, as well as taking classes and asking questions on here. I also been asking questions on what works and what doesn’t work. I’m kind of getting annoyed with the whole, do this then do that, then go get help, or seek medical attention at...

    I have got a few 55 gallon barrels that had pickles in them before. I am now facing a new problem of where can I buy 55 gallon mylar bags. I only need to purchase a few of them so please don't suggest a site that makes you do a minimum buy of 10. If you can put up a link to the website I will...

    I've currently been looking at first aid gear for a SHTF scenario and this pack caught my eye. I was hoping you could look at it and give a professional opinion of it. Please and Thank You. http://www.survival-supply.com/stomp-medic-p-5568.html

    Thought I would start a thread about all the uncommon stuff you can use in a first aid kit to save money or deal with specific problems. Mine is feminine hygiene products... Tampons in the applicator are easily inserted into the chest cavity in the event of a GSW or other type of "sucking...

    I'm sure this has been talked about several times, but can someone make a list of items that can be sealed in the mylar bags? Tonight was my first time, 22-pounds of long white rice. Just wondering what else I could do. Thanks!

    I am currently a rookie on the worst case senario preparedness. Which foods will have a 20 year shelf life when packed correctly in Mylar bags with oxygen absorbers?

    I'm almost through with paramedic school and will be the lone "medical professional" in my group when the SHTF scenario arrives. We all have assigned some roles as far as stockpiling supplies and one of my roles will be assembling a medical bag and medical supplies. This wont be used as some...

    Hey there! I have a problem with pasta in my pantry. We have been storing pasta in rubbermaid containers because I thought that would help with keeping the bugs (weevils) out. However they still get infested in these containers! I am thinking about my long term storage of pasta. I have not done...
