    For those who are interested in post-SHTF surgical care: I've been reading up about emergency trauma surgery and trying to adapt it to the post-SHTF environment. I'm 95% sure that this is going to kill anyone that I have to work on. I'm hoping that my surgical kit will become safer and safer...
  2. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I read a recent post on post SHTF infection, which made me consider cleanliness. Like many others I store gallons of bleach, but how long will a few gallons last, and how much room do I want to allocate for bleach storage?

    So we talk about being prepared for a shtf situation. How many millions of people are addicted to nicotine. What is going to happen when there are millions of people out there, hungry, thirsty, cold and having a nicotine fit. I know this may sound stupid, but i would like to see where this...

    Lately there seems to be many threads asking if people practice bugging out or if bugging out to a BOL will even work. So I thought it might be good to actually tell about in detail and show with many pics how one can get to a BOL - bug out location for those who might not know. And even...
