  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hi folks, I'm sure this topic has been covered ad nauseum, the topic of bug out bags and firearms. To be clear, I am not assessing a basic get home bag or every day carry bag. I already have these. I'm trying to figure out what makes sense to pack between my car as a bugout vehicle and an...
  2. Vehicles & Transportation
    Which of these is the easiest to use, fuel, work on, drive, make, fix, modify, and all that; in a situation where governmental collapse has occurred and supplies, fuels, and parts are not readily available - in your opinion?
  3. Food and water
    I'm always looking for new prep foods for the pantry. Canned meats are always up on the list, as finding protein additions to the carbs is a challenge. I noticed Hickory Smoked Spam yesterday at Wally World. Now I do not like Spam or spam like products. I stock a small amount, but not very much...
  4. Primitive Weapons, Bows and Crossbows
    Anyone here have or use a fire-lance? If so, is it good and do you reckon it can act as a basic SHTF hunting and defence weapon? I've not seen any round here yet so I figured I'd make the call.
  5. Washington
    Hello im new to the site and I'm trying to get in touch with like minded survivalist groups for exchanging knowledge and preparedness strategies for the common man. Meet and fish camp and or hunt. Please feel free to drop a message here
  6. Food and water
    I decided to start storing up food for family and possibly a couple of friends who maybe didn't take things quite as seriously as I did. It's not gonna be fancy, but at least I will have something. So far I got 2 of the 10 pound pails of oats from Augason farms (One was about 30 bucks and the...
  7. Oregon
    Checking to see if folks are active on here. Open discussion. I'll start: What difficulties are you facing right now, structurally, weather, etc?
  8. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I have a pretty decent seed supply. There were a few things I wanted to add, and wasn't about to wait for spring. I particularly wanted some Blue Hubbard winter squash. Most of the retailers were sold out. I stumbled on Everwild. I am very impressed with their prices on larger bulk seed packs...
  9. Firearms General Discussion
    I know I'm not the only guy who like to squirrel away some good handloads for the big day. Trouble is, typical commercial +p type load data is almost never listed by manufactures. This is most common with handgun calibers. What loads have you worked up for your firearms for your SHTF stash? I am...
  10. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    I have shopped around all over for medical supplies over the years. I was recently tipped off by a friend about the website I truly wish I had found this place years ago. The selection, as well as the prices, are extremely reasonable. Just some examples. All in...
  11. New Member Introduction
    Hi, y'all! I am a retired public middle school school teacher (taught mostly music, then English and reading, and a year of basic math). I became interested in being prepared when I was a young girl in Girl Scouts ("Be Prepared" remember that?). As an adult and a teacher getting paid...
  12. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    I am in need of a decent suture kit. I'm not well trained, so I don't need a top tier kit. Something inexpensive, relatively, but still quality would be best. I have noticed Amazon offering a number of "training" kits complete with needles and sutures, as well as fake skin. Is there any reason...
  13. Food and water
    I finally scored a 275 gallon IBC tote thanks to a neighbor. Paid $75. It is made by Mauser and from a guide online, I believe it is a 2" g bsp size fitting? I can't find anywhere that sells a hose adapter that aligns with this description. Everywhere either lists "fine" or "coarse" threads...
  14. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have been debating the purchase of a All American 30 quart pressure canner for a couple years. I decided this was the year and went shopping online. SOLD OUT! Everywhere. A few places were still selling them, for over $400 and with the notice that they won't be shipping for 4-10 weeks minimum...
  15. DIY - Do It Yourself
    One of the drawbacks often mentioned when running a portable generator is the noise which is annoying and alerts the neighbors you have power. How feasible do you think a baffle box to reduce noise would be? My idea is to build a box made of plywood and 2x4s that's big enough to allow at least...
  16. Firearms General Discussion
    I finally pulled almost all of my ammo cans to refresh the desiccant and organize. Shot a quick video of what I've put back. Enjoy!
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Durining a SHTF event, where you have to hunker down, do you have any trouble with isolation?
  18. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    A few questions about rabbits: 1) Has anyone tried free range rabbit ranching with a rabbit hutch and rabbit run but with the rabbits released during the day to forage on grass? 2) Are rabbits at serious risk of predation in a semi-rural area during daylight hours? We do have coyotes as well as...
  19. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Prepper Ed's question, as a new thread in regard to the current outbreak of the Wuhan CoronaVirus. "Can any medical professionals comment on primitive treatments for pneumonia-like symptoms? Let's assume the hospitals are full and all the respirators are in use so people have to treat...
  20. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    I don't think it's time to push the panic button yet, but .... the new Wuhan virus appears to be spreading fast so I'm beginning to transition to pre-SHTF mode. What preps would be beneficial at this stage? I'm thinking: 1) Stock up on zinc pills. Zinc has been proven in labs to slow the...
