    If you have or have not heard this past weekend, survivalist and prepper boards, blogs, email, and You Tube were buzzing with information that federal agents raided a LDS cannery in Tennessee trying to obtain customer lists. This information so far seems to be false and it has caused an uproar...

    Okay, I got absolutely flamed for my last poll because I didn't include a completely irrelevant option in the poll, so here it goes: DISCLAIMER: Pick the option that best fits. If your favorite option doesn't exist, tough crap...make your own poll.

    Thanks to all for the input on my previous post...now on to my next question. I have done some scouting of the local area and have determined a number of good wilderness BOLs (just on the outskirts of a small wildlife park that almost no one in this town knows exists. We hike it every week for...

    Mine is to probably get my family (Mom's side) together and try to go to my aunt's store, or to my Grandma's old house... I figured since we got all of our survival goodies together, why not discuss a plan? Maybe plan to meet up with each other, or something... sorry if its been posted...

    Hi guys kinda new here I live in bagdad az and just have gotten into preping so I don't have much but I've got a bob/hunting pack and there's no way I could carry enough stuff for my family of 4. But I also have a fifthwheel I could load up and pull somewhere if I needed to. But my question is...

    Starting 7 years ago in my efforts to prepare for the most likely disaster I expected a Nuclear Disaster, but the types of nuclear disaster I counted on was either Nuclear war or a dirty bomb/suitcase nuke. But upon that I also expected Earthquakes and started to prepare for those too. I live...

    I have two "homes" because of work, chicago and san antonio, and i have done some basic planning for both locations. To compound the problem, i travel to locations over 3/4 of the USA at least two weeks out of every month. I can not carry knifes or other tools on me when i fly, and stuff i...

    I was reading a thread about 3-day food supplies and I saw something that I had to ask about. Rather than hijack that thread - I'll start a new one. My apologies if this has been asked before (I'm sure it has) but I'm not a good "searcher"..:o: What's a typical bug out "pace"? The person who...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...

    I was curious how often others practice bugging out or for that matter bugging in. As i've become more serious about prepping i realized that many of my original plans were flawed because they only factored in current travel times with the infrastructure intact. :upsidedown: Then i realized that...

    Hypothetically speaking of course, if someone wanted to get a 7x12 enclosed cargo trialer and turn it into a portable storage building or BOT (Bug Out Trailer). What all would they need to put in it in addition to the following hypothetical list? Ammo 125 410 800 12ga 15 slugs, 25 #4, 25 #6...

    I have been a member of this forum for only a short time,and i have read a lot of the comments/suggestions/idea's on this forum and i have learned a lot..But i think i should take a close look at reality. When and if this event/events roll around i will be 66 years old. I honestly do not think i...

    I searched for this but wasnt able to find is this site was posted or not. I found it off the USGS web site and its looks somewhat new. Talking about a big practice drill coming up this month in the would be effected areas. I don't live in these parts but wanted to pass it on to those who do...

    I was thinking about this awhile ago and wondered how useful folks really think their bug out bags will be if things really got bad. I mean, if it got bad, how much help is a bag that might help you survive a couple weeks? I've gotten myself as prepared as I know how by getting a good chunk...

    Every day there are posts of Bug In ... or Bug Out ... or whatever. How many people making the decision are really knowledgeable of US travel systems, including Air, Rail, Interstate, and State Hi-Way systems across the entire US? Then, there is the problem of bridges that cross waterways. Are...

    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...

    Here's my scenario: I already own some land and wanted to have a place on it to stay for myself,family and friends. I am only able to go there on weekends and have been staying in a cold,wet tent for the last 3 months. I considered buying one of those prefab cabins. A 12'x16' costs around...

    I have question regarding a home/BOL on acreage. Currently planning for the next step to have a home with some land. I say BOL but this will be the main home. Is it better to have a home hidden within the trees or located within a clearing of the trees? Either way the home will be on heavily...
