    As things stand right now I have a basic setup of non perishable foods and basic medical supplies for my wife and I should we need to survive in SHTF, I'm planning on bulking them up and maybe aiming for some better quality eventualy. But for right now I feel my next decision I need to make is...
  2. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    I wonder why nobody has pick this particular story about lead poisoning across Los Angeles. I'm interested to know how such major poisoning could even happen in the first place http://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-lead-la/
  3. Australia and New Zealand
    Judging by the lack of response to my posts, the majority here have different interests to what I have. So perhaps we could have some ideas on posts please. We can forget about primitive skills posts & long term wilderness living/survival, so I assume the majority already know all there is to...
  4. Military Weapons Forum
    I originally found this site in a search years ago. You were discussing a Plate Carrier I also had. Yours was setup way differently than all of mine. After finding the lost link to the site and password. I thought some of you would be interested in which Plate Carrier has become my main focus...
  5. Urban Survival
    Hi everyone, So I have been thinking of ways to better protect myself inside my second story apartment. I plan to bug in (Shelter in place) if anything bad happens and only bug out if my home is compromised (Burning, Collapsing, etc) as I don't really have any other place to go. I have a 3...

    What do you plan on doing with your gun safe when/if you have to Bug out? I'm not talking about leaving for a couple of days and then coming back, I'm talking about leaving and possibly not being able to return for years, if at all.. We keep as much as we can at our BOL but lets face it...

    Retreat Checklists - checklists to be used once relocation to retreat has occurred. Checklists will aide in making sure things are started in an orderly and efficient manner with minimal oversight. This list is for a retreat that is actually a house in the country and a full time residence...
  8. General Discussion
    Seeing our presIdential candidates (primarily the female Snowden) as well as the "dindu nuffins" attacking law enforcement after a few idiots breaking the law get themselves killed, and don't even get me started on the gun control debates after the most recent shootings. I really think the...
  9. Books, Movies & Stories
    A huge thank you to all of you who wanted to read my Prepper friendly apocalyptic novel "The Dying Time: Impact" in print as opposed to an ebook. Took me awhile to figure out how to get it out on CreateSpace but it was worth the effort. The print version is a full 6" x 9" so it looks like a...
  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    First off I'm a Christian, which in and of itself is not all that popular now a days. That being said, it's one of the guiding reasons why I prep. Most people I talk to seem as though they are prepping for the end of the world. They have varying beliefs what will lead to it, but the final...
  11. Firearms General Discussion
    Due to budget lately I'm sadly restricted to $300 for a long gun and can't decide between a 12 guage shotgun (pump) or a mosin nagant.What are some pros and cons of each? Haven't seen a mosin worth buying locally but I saw a used Remington 870 at gander mountain yesterday for $199 and I'm very...
  12. Firearms General Discussion
    Pros and cons of shotguns vs a 22 rifle for a secondary long arm in a bug out shtf scenario. Would the extra weight of a shotgun and ammo be justifiable as it's "more suitable" for a defensive scenario?
  13. General Discussion
    For all of the gear-heavy preppers out there... So, you're a gear-centric prepper...you have state of the art military-grade weaponry, ammunition, and plenty of both. You felt a need for level IIIA body armor and that kevlar cover, and now you have it. You bought the knife Delta force is...
  14. Vehicles & Transportation
    In a fit of brilliance (That I have yet to discuss with the missus), I came up with an idea, and wanted some advice from you guys. That means in effect that I'm just curious as to whether I'm gonna get a bunch of "**** yeah's" or "You're an idiot's" Turning a vehicle into a better SHTF vehicle...
  15. Australia and New Zealand
    I belong to a survival group on Facebook, & it drives me nuts! I really hope this does not offend anyone here, but for the life of me I simply can not understand why people contemplating long term wilderness survival are so fixated with modern gadgets. I get the impression that their interest is...
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    EVERY serious prepper needs to watch this! "What does survival without technology look like?" Here's a great video that explains what will happen when technology collapses, and the hard choices that people who are used to having modern technology will have to make...
  17. Firearms General Discussion
    Hello all! As we all know, for every one of us who preps there's probably 10 or more who don't. Today I'm wondering how many of you have "extra" firearms that if and when the shtf you have deemed to or plan on handing out to the unprepared around you? As an example, while I don't have exactly a...
  18. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Hello all, I was reviewing my preps the other day and I noticed I have next to nothing for medicine. I have some ibuprofen, anti fungal, and Vaseline. Otherwise I have nothing. I know a few obvious ones would be neosporin, maybe some decongestants, antacids and some vitamins. What other otc...

    Can anybody recommend any survival/outdoorsman coarse? I have lots of local experience. But looking for much more. Thanks in advance for any input.
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I started out indulging in gear and gadgetry to bring comfort to nowhere. As time has gone by, (keeping in mind, I am short about $300 in necessary gear) my gear got heavier and heavier. Not to mention my spine is jacked from both ends and closing. I've more in the last year studied in thought...
