  3. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    As i'm talking more and more about prepping along with discussing more and more topics about what is important once society collapses. I come to realize that each of us values different skills and hobbies for TEOTWAWKI situation's we post about. Along with different ways we plan to prepare for...

    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...

    A while back I stumbled across a photo of a "Car Over Trench Shelter" A field expedient shelter requireing you to dig a trench and pull your vehicle overtop of the trench. Then fill the inside and around the vehicle with the loose excavated dirt. Is this type of field expedient fallout shelter...

    We ensure that we get out and hone our survival skills. Our team spends several hours monthly in the woodlands creating shelters, making new traps and honing our fire starting skills. What kind of training recommendations would you make to fellow Preppers? "Prep for the best, Hope for the...

    Just gauging interest for a meet in or around the Lafayette area maybe in the next few weeks? I'm out of town for work but will be back after the Thanksgiving weekend, so possibly after? Seems like interest is growing in our area, so I thought I'd throw this question out there. Have a...

    I was thinking of something important while looking on gunner15's thread. So, using his situation; Let's say that you're out on a hunt during a major survival situation. You're searching for game when suddenly you're abruptly stopped by a group of suspicious people who claim that you're hunting...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have seen comments in various threads about the importance of skills for a collapse scenario and what the best skills might be. I am not so much talking about survival skills for living in the wilderness as I am skills that are useful in society. As a way to prepare for the future I am looking...

    I've been personally cataloguing bushcraft and survival skills that I already know or would like to learn. It would be awesome if everyone could list some skills that are essential to mastering bushcraft and survival or perhaps some that an amateur such as myself wouldn't have even thought of or...

    Group skills First not sure if this is the right place for this, if not please move it where it should be. Ok I was thinking about this recently, reevaluating what I alrady have set up in my group. And was wondering for those others here who have a group, or for those wanting to start a...
  15. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'm sort of new to the website.. I'm 15. I have grown up with my father around weapons in the Las Vegas area. I learned a lot of things about what's going on around us. Not until about a few months ago did I take everything for granted and think life was perfect until my mother the only one who...

    1. Would you be interested in some kind of smallish event (I'm talking e-z up shades and such at a public park like Old Settlers Park off of hwy 79, or the smaller one by IKEA on IH35 north, if it stays open for a while) with a dozen or more speakers, displays, some activities, and if they can...

    Okay this occurred to me as lots of folks, including me, have been mentioning that you need to learn more bushcraft skills to be able to lighten your load. So I created this thread so that we may be able to identify all the items that we do not need to carry around with us, as we replace them...
  18. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I'm hoping this thread really takes off, because I would like to discuss blacksmithing with others who might be interested on this forum, whether you're an expert, novice or are just interested. In my opinion, blacksmithing is going to be one of the prime skills in a post EOTWAWKI world. It...

    The Mind. Just caught "The Book of Eli". As I've stated in another thread, I'm of the "Mad Max" generation. Eli showed some other issues that come in dealing with a post apocolyptic world. The one thing that cannot be purchased or bartered for is one's mind. That has to be the sharpest...

    I thought it would be helpful to have a thread to list current opportunities for learning and fun for both kids and adults. This came to me today. I no longer have kids this age, but what a great and fun time to learn some valuable skills. I have no affiliation but we are supporters of C.C.A...
