  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I would like to have more hardware (nuts/bolts, screws, etc) in order to be prepared for a time when a hardware store is too far, or supplies are limited. I've started buying the "contractor packs", even when I need just a few bolts/nuts, and have started organizing them in bins by size...
  2. Arizona
    We do not have many options in Arizona for a one-stop shop to pick up or stock up on prepping supplies. I work for a solar installation company in Chandler that services all of Arizona, and we are looking to expand our building space to include a small store where we can supply small solar...
  3. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Have been thinking with all that's going on in the world lately especially the Ebola threat and have been thinking do I have enough in my first aid kit? a couple of people have mentioned that they have saline IV bags in their kits and i'm thinking should I have them too? this is what I have in...

    Just got back from three hardware stores looking to buy a faucet for my water tote. They were all having empty shelves where the faucets were. At the last one, the owner told me that I wouldn't find one anywhere. He said that the EPA has forced all retail supplies to be removed until lead free...
  5. Urban Survival
    Recently had to arrive at a city destination 2 1/2 days in advance, so I decided to make a training opportunity out of it. Took a pack, filled it, walked the streets for 10 hours a day, 2 1/2 days, while trying to fit in Gray Man style. I'd like to share some opinions / observations. 1. Light...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    My daughter and I have been tossing around ideas for what's the best way to keep track of our supplies. We've discussed spread sheets, word document, note books, pinning the receipts to a cork board, giving each lot of items a UID numbers, using code names (she was being silly with that one)...

    I tend to frequent Thrift Stores a couple of times a week. You never know what you'll find, and at a pretty good price. I did a search of this topic and found one hadn't been done. (If so I apologize). I for one like to explore and "hunt" for stuff that others think is junk and I don't want...

    I went to my local Walmart a week ago (Near Seattle) and stopped dead in my tracks when I saw an end cap with Agason Farms Emergency Food #10 cans for sale. They have six for only $55.00 and I god a about five of those that day. I shop at this store all the time and never had seen them...

    I didn't see this subject in other threads, so please forgive me if this is incorrectly posted or redundant. What's a BOB, you say? What's a BIB? Well, BOB and BIB are acronyms for Bug Out Bag and Bug In Bag, respectively. In case of disaster, man-made or otherwise, you need to get you and...

    Gas prices are starting to go through the roof, will this make people go into panic buying mode and buy other supplies - especially food?
  11. Urban Survival
    This is not about TAKING other peoples property. Anyone thought about using abandoned/empty properties as a bug out location. It'd seem like a waste to leave some secure out of the way house or facility abandoned during a shtf event especially if it has a well and/or defensive capabilities...

    The following article describes the expected soaring rise in food prices to hit countries all over the world and the possibility future food riots. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/41062817/ns/business-consumer_news There is quite a bit of information hinted at "between the lines" here. It's very...

    Hey yall. I would like for you guys to check out our wiki site we developed last year and give me some input or advice on how to make it better. We put it together because we believe something bad is about to happen and I was concerned about the younger generation's ability to make it if...

  19. Food and water
    These videos are for those who are just coming around to the self reliance mindset, but are overwhelmed and don't know where to start. This is a simple idea to get things started by putting back supplies little by little without going broke in the process. The journey of thousand miles begins...

    What is the longest you and/or your group has lasted solely on your supplies? I am not talking about being a hermit; external human contact is fine. If you have a self sufficient farm and go to town to jaw and have a beer that is fine. I am also not necessarily talking about pure survival; if...
