  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    German Govt staff members in the FEDERAL OFFICE OF CIVIL PROTECTION AND DISASTER ASSISTANCE said to go to the documents that they have previously placed online and prep for the coming Winter. The politicians in Germany came down hard on the staff member and he softened his message, which prepper...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    A good family water filter is one of the last preps I have held off on. Yes, I know. I do have 2 of the LifeStraw Family units, and several of the singles. There are a many other options, and the more I research, the more I feel overwhelmed. I am happy to spend the money, but do not want to...
  3. Military Weapons Forum
    I'm new and this is my first post. First of all, I am not an AR15 snob; I also like AKs. I'm a retired Marine and have a lot of experience for this subject. I hope you find my reasoning as practical and rational as I think it is for SHTF specifically. I'll start with an outline of my seven main...
  4. Polls and Surveys
    When covid hit I could not find certain things, so I would do kamikaze runs once or twice a week during lock down and hit a number of stores on a food / prep run. To make things efficient, I had made a list of all food options within a 30-minute radius of my house in any direction and came up...
  5. Food and water
    Considering the price of grain is expected to increase by 100%-300%, how long before this increase dramatically hits the brewery market? In talking to the owner of my local beer distributor today, I brought this up. He said generally most products have already increased in price by $2-$3 so far...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    When I started with the preps back around 2007, they discussed how women and their daughters would handle SHTF. Back then the survival group was a mailing list, bulletin board type of deal. You got it by emails. I don't remember all the advice, but I remember the 2 extremes. 1) Don't use too...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Yes. this is just for fun. Lets say we exclude food and water as truck contents. So after SHTF, you stumble onto a parked semi trailer full of ?. If you could pick, what would be the trailer be filled to the brim with? Just interested to see the answers. :) I will chime in after a few others.
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hey all! I was just wondering which of these methods would you use as your fire-starting method in an SHTF situation. Personally, I would say either good old-fashioned friction or fire-piston is the best as making especially a hand-drill fire is fairly easy with a bit of practice; and carving a...
  9. 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...
  10. Vehicles, Transportation, & Overlanding
    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?
  11. 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...
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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...
  15. 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?
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. 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 Mountainside-Medical.com. 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...
  19. New Member Introductions
    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...
