    The current Coronavirus pandemic has allowed a lot of us to test our prepping plans. Surely some of us have found holes, gaps... in our plans that we are working to fill. Let's talk about how the Coronavirus pandemic has helped and/or hurt our prepping plans. Canned Goods - Several years ago...

    WA State, Are you seeing folks in public wearing masks? I'm curious. COVID-19 is definitely out there. Our governor declared a state of emergency. I'm ticked off about that stupid teacher who, along with family, took advantage of the cheap airfare and accommodations to traipse around on the...

    Okay so I've been thinking. I've got everything I need here at my house. I live near a river so there's nonstop water. I have water filter. I've got plenty of emergency food buckets, MREs, canned food. A good rifle and hand gun and thousands of rounds of ammo for each, armored plate carrier and...

    Build deck on back of house. Fence in a field for livestock. Start to work on barn. Buy Bravo Company upper to round out my AR collection. Build my brother a bar-b-que pit on a trailer. Increase my ammunition, magazine and AR-15 spare parts stockpile. Build my wife a nice raised bed garden -...

    While my wife an I are camping at Martin Dies State Park – which is closee to Jasper Texas – I thought this would be a good time to talk about our Bug Out Box. We do not call it a Bug Out Box per say, we call it our camping box. But it would serve either purpose. If some kind of SHTF event...

    In this article we are going to be discussing how to design your chicken flock for a long term SHTF / TEOTWAWKI situation. How many chickens would you need to produce enough eggs for you and your family? What about breeding, chicken coop and chicken yard size? Do you want focus on egg...

    Sooner or later everyone in the prepping/survivalist community deals with prepping fatigue. Whether you have been prepping for a year, two years, ten years or twenty plus years, sooner or later you are going to get fatigued. Due to the way I was raised by my parents, the way my grandparents...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Last weekend I had the opportunity to test my BOB. I threw it in the car as we were leaving for the mountains. I didn't give it a thought. When we got there some relatives decided to do some shooting so I grabbed the BOB since I keep a .22 single action revolver in there. We hiked up in...

    It seem there is a lot of opinions about what goes into a BOB but there seems to be even more opinions on what the BOB is used for. My personal BOB is designed for a very long term detour from society and conveniences. Some people's idea of bugging out may be a weeks worth of camping. What is...

    Some kind of SHTF / TEOTWAWKI event happens, what are some basic skills every survivalist should know? Trying to balance work, family life and prepping means there is not a lot of free time. Kids birthday parties, work a garden, go to the shooting range, tend to the fruit trees, go fishing...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I thought I would post this poll in relationship to the best and worst states threads. How important is your location to you as a prepper? The scenario is total society/financial meltdown. For whatever reason you can not bug out. Please vote and state your reasons. :)
  12. Urban Survival
    Here's the Scenario: You live in Los Angeles, only a mile off the Pacific Coast (zip 90292). Your entire family is in Chicago, and they have a BOL located in a nice secluded part of northern Wisconsin...This would be the obvious location where you could find them in a SHTF situation.... How...

    Ive been planning on buying a grain mill and want to know what you use and your thoughts and why its the best.
  14. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Virtually all land is owned, so anywhere you decided to go you will be on someone's property. If half of land owners are like some of those on this forum that have the shoot on sight mentality it will be very dangerous for people bugging out. This video has good sensible advice for the land...
  15. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've seen other threads along this topic that seem to just die out after a few replies... but the subject still looks viable to me. I've been actively prepping for a couple of years after thinking about it for a previous few years. I have a nice "paid for" home on two acres in the Coastal Bend...

    As much as we would like to have a nice home in the burbs and a well supplied fortress in the boonies, some of us need to be practical about such things! I am nearing retirement and as much as I would like a nice piece of acreage that has water, good fishing, good hunting, good growing season...
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have decided that when TSHTF the best option for my wife and I is to bug out. There are two locations in which I can choose. First Location-400 acre with running water supply, around 50 head of cattle but that is the only livestock on property. This location is about 1 hr drive from...
  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    My parents have been prepping for 3 years and i just started doing so seriously. Our BOL is 600 miles away, with good stock and most of what we need. We are trying to take steps to move very close to there this year, but if shtf before we can...what are the chances of getting there considering...

    During a long term SHTF / teotwawki survival situation, fishing will be an important way to gather food. One of the goals of this fishing / camping trip is to practice our SHTF / teotwawki fishing skills. another goal of this trip is to make observations about issues that people might run into...
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Thought I would post a pic of my prep closet to see what everyone thinks. Keep in mind his is not the extend of my preps, I have a couple shelves full of food in a "pantry" in my crawlspace, then our BOBs, mine on the other side of the closet, and our camper and some more gear in the garage...
