    Hi All, Am not an electrician, so the wire gauges is a bit like Greek to me. :xeye: What is the best type and gauge of wire to get for snare wire? Am looking at snare wire for small game like rabbits. Thanks in advance for the help.

    Flight suit sized to fit over your civvies with the pockets loaded with BOB contents. Store this in a nearly empty backpack and stuff it with items that are always in your truck (mission essentials) and move!

    I went for a short hike spontaneously today. And had considered having a bag ready so I could just pop out for a short time and go bush. Nothing serious nothing clever. And then I considered that this is where a bob starts. Not at surviving for weeks with no supplies. So I may have a kit...

    I came across this idea in a video by nutnfancy. He talks about a "USK" or urban survival kit. I will now discuss my USK, and the philosophy behind it. Here it is: Water (Around 2 liters is enough.) 2 liters water, bottled Food (Around 1500-2000 calories is enough.) 8 Clif Bars Shelter...

    Long time lurker and sometimes political and religious poster here, but seeing the plight of the civilian population in Japan has got really got me worried--and I'm not even talking about the nuclear specter. This is from Food Insurance.com and for what you get, the storage, etc; looks like a...

    Everyone should have a 72hr kit, with food, water, radio, first aid, etc. to last you and your family for the first 3 days of a SHTF, situation. (Unless of course you have a 72 day, or 72 month kit.) But it’s nice to have a kit ready, so you know that you have 3 days of supplies at hand, in...

    Ok, Im sure Im getting annoying asking for help and not giving a whole lot back in return (I try). But I'm still learning. So here are my kits that I have for certain areas or reasons...I tried uploading these, but the files had problems. So Im sorry this is going to be a little longer...

    At first glance the subject of Desert Survival seems deceptively simple. Find water and stay out of the sun; right? Not so fast, its a bit more complicated. To discuss desert survival properly we must ask ourselves a few questions. What is a desert? Why and how long will we be in the...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I was wondering about a couple of things 1. Which backpack would be good for SHTF and wilderness survival? I know Alice are good, but they are $50-$100. Anyone suggest anything cheaper? It would obviously have to be extremely durable. :confused: 2. Making natural cordage? Assuming that...
  12. Urban Survival
    I just bought a pre-made survival pack for 2 people to last 72 hours (i think). I was wondering if there's anything else that i should include as part of my kit in addition to the items already included: Food and Water: 12 - Boxes of Aqua Blox Water Boxes - each box has a 5 year shelf-life 24...

    Pocket Survival Kits are kits that are designed to increase your chances of survival during a crisis or survival situation. The most important aspect of the kit is that it should be light enough to be carried at all times. A small kit with a few items that you always carry is better than a large...

    So I’m wondering if anyone can recommend a good small knife or blade that will fit in a small survival kit, like the BCB Combat Survival Kit tin. What knife/blade do you carry in your pocket survival kit? I have a Spyderco Ladybug in my pocket survival kit (16g / 5 oz...

    Just wanted to share the wealth with you folks. I don't know how many of you include 'chem-lites', light sticks, glow sticks or whatever you wish to call them in your preps. I would suggest you look at adding them. They are an excellent source of light, no heat, no flame and these have a 4 year...

    I need some ideas for my commuting survival kit in Wisconsin. I am particularly interested in what foods one might include. In my area they will be frozen solid when kept in the car in the winter. Granola bars? Slim Jims? When you get stuck in a snowy ditch for a day or more ya get hungry...

    Ok. I thought it would be cool to see what folks have waiting and ready as a bug out bag, or whatever. Not talking about fallout shelter, or tactical gear. Just about the bag you have sitting and waiting, or the pickup truck that's loaded and waiting to go, or whatever is laying in wait as a...

    Ok guys. I support my family and my parents financially. Times have been hard and I've been really on the rocks. My parents spent their lifes helping others out and putting themselves at the mercy of other people. Some of those people screwed them and drove them into major debt and sorrow. I'm...
