  1. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    While packing for day hike I usually start off with something like the military surplus patrol pack, pack my gear, then decide if a smaller or larger pack will do. One of the drawbacks to this, the patrol pack has two canteens mounted on it. So whether I need two canteens full of water, they...

    Is a multi-tool worth the weight on a hiking / camping trip? The first answer would be yes. After all you never know when you may need a pair of pliers for something. Then again, I am 52 years old, been hiking, camping, hunting.... for decades and have only used a multi-tool a handful of...
  3. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    When someone decides to get into prepping and they start reading through the various blogs and forums, it can be easy to become overwhelmed. Since I founded Survivalist Boards, I’ve lost count of the number of newbies asking the same (but legitimate) questions and making the same mistakes. And...

    My B.O.B is a work in progress. I find that I'm never satisfied with it, not even close. To heavy, wrong contents, wrong bag, whatever my thoughts may be. It mostly comes down to what I want to have vs. weight. I'm a backpacker so this issue is not new to me but with backpacking i'm not as...

    Part of my videos for 2018 are doing reviews of low cost survival gear. I wanted to start with compasses, just because. The first video was about a 50 cent compass. I got on Ebay and looked around for a compass that cost less than 50 cents. There were some with a shoe string attached to...

    Hey guys, I got to thinking (I know, thinking is dangerous ). What things are so inexpensive that any self respecting prepper would be ashamed not to stock up on? And not just ant things, but really very versatile stuff that can be used for many many uses. I'm thinking kosher salt ( a...

    Hi, Preppers. I'm looking for some advice from you all. I'm a college student living a 10 hour drive from my family back home. I keep thinking about the worst case scenario if something were to happen and all **** broke loose. I would need to make it from Chicago to South Dakota so I can regroup...

    Curious how much people are carrying in their packs. Lets do a list of what type of packs and how much if what we carry in each. I generally have 1 survival bag that goes with me everywhere it is my primary pack. I guess you could call it a get home bag/bug out bag/universal survival bag. I...

    BOB's everywhere you look its BOB's..... Its as if everyone is preparing to run out the front door to the nearest patch of woods as soon as anything major happens. I often wonder why people don't focus more energy on Bugging in.... seems more logical. I get it, its good to have a BOB in case...

    I'm thinking about adding sleeping pads to my Bug Out Bags. Is this a good idea? And what type would you recommend? I've been leaning towards a 3/4 inch thick military type roll up foam pad. Please advise. I don't want to spend more than $30.00 a pad!

    In my last thread, Nomad, 2nd said I need to make it a little longer, so here I go. For April 2017 I decided to focus on rechargeable USB devices. Rather than going with a large 12 volt panel, to a charge controller, and then to a battery, I decided to go dabble in a solar panel that has USB...

    Does anyone know of an AM/FM radio that will fit in the mouth of a 32 ounce water bottle? I would like to put together a water bottle survival kit. There are a number of threads on the topic, but I have not found anything that includes a micro am/fm radio.

    I have a buddy that is trying to get a preparedness store up and running. It will be a lot of online business, but there will be a store front as well. For starting small, what would you think would be the top items that people would want to see and touch before they buy? Here is a short list...

    Alright so the holidays are coming and I am working on building my sorta kinda girlfriend a B.O.B. She is a tiny little thing at 5'3. She is also (looks around in fear :xeye:) older at 40. We recently went on a hike in Yosemite and she loved my Camelbak Mule so I bought her the exact same pack...
