  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    (Judging from the comments below I should have chosen a different name for this post. Consider the title to be "The world ended and I've had to run away from my preps and/or BOL, now what?") If you've been following my posts you'll notice that I have covered several topics these past few...
  2. Urban Survival
    I'm new to the forum and wanted to get a little advice on a plan of mine. I'm a minimalist with an interest in primitive survivalism. While I am confident in my ability to survive with a very small kit and no fixed home base, I just wanted to know how the rest of you guys feel about this, and...

    Survival preparations need to be done in an effective order (reading/studying, purchasing, storing). Thus, we need a set of priorities. I would like to propose the following prioritized steps to take in emergency preparations: 1. In an emergency, our very basic level of needs are: A.) Air...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Starting 7 years ago in my efforts to prepare for the most likely disaster I expected a Nuclear Disaster, but the types of nuclear disaster I counted on was either Nuclear war or a dirty bomb/suitcase nuke. But upon that I also expected Earthquakes and started to prepare for those too. I live...
  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    How many times have we heard that when bringing up prepping to someone?It's hard enough to shoot a deer now let alone when 300some odd million have deer on the menu how many species do you think will be hunted to darn near extinction not to mention how many ponds and lakes will be emptied of...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Has anyone ever considered building a (somewhat) Medieval-style walled keep to use as a bug-out location? I'm picturing a 10-12' tall concrete block/cement/steel-reinforced type wall enclosing perhaps a 5o-75 square meter area (or more, as finances and practicality dictate) on your property in...

When and if this event/events roll around i will be 66 years old. I honestly do not think i...
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    We have been looking at some rural large lots, mainly in so-called sub-divisions. They are mostly 5 acre lots or so, with water rights. Power is no where near, so off grid would be the only power available. What are the pitfalls of places like this. Is there a reason they are so cheap? We would...
  10. Firearms General Discussion
    The time may soon come that I have to bury guns and ammo. ***ATTENTION MODS, I AM NOT SUGGESTING THAT I AM LOOKING TO BREAK ANY LAWS, NOR AM I ASKING FOR ADVICE ON HOW TO DO SO.*** I have come to the conclusion that mylar bags inside 6" PVC pipe and fittings is not the most user-friendly way to...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    With the first of the year I always like to do a self review. While I can think of many things I need to do to be better prepared, I also did some thinking about the strategic weaknesses in my plans. So in your plans, is there a strategic weakness due to a bias in what situation you believe...
  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have question regarding a home/BOL on acreage. Currently planning for the next step to have a home with some land. I say BOL but this will be the main home. Is it better to have a home hidden within the trees or located within a clearing of the trees? Either way the home will be on heavily...
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have been hearing a lot of numbers thrown here and there for guesses as to when the SHTF. I know that some are just that random "guesses". Just wondering if anyone has any more solid evidence that points to a particular time frame. I have heard 2012 - there is a lot of "hype" over that date...
  14. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    These may be obvious for a lot of us, but they might help some newcommers. DO NOT... 1.Leave your home or bug-in loc. carrying a long gun. If any cops are still around, they will arrest you and steal your firearms (Katrina proved that). Have a hi-cap 9 or .45 pistol and a .22 pistol for...

If you are not making plans and preparing yourself for the here and the now and your future in the world as is.....you are making some serious mistakes. Being prepared is a state of mind. If you...

  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hey, I'm new to the board, but have been reading it for some time now. I have an avid interest in survivalism, stemming from a general interest in camping (and firearms). Often I think about an actual scenario in which bugging out would be necessary. It always seems to hit brick walls...

    When I was thinking about posting this thread, I was going to title it "reverse osmosis with a permeate pump VS Berkey water filter, an analysis of the survivalist mindset" - but some people would expect to read some kind of review of water filters, instead of the mindset that surrounds them...

    During the July 4 holidays my family and I will usually go to the camp and spend a couple of days. This past July 4 we were supposed to get a lot of rain, so our trip was postponed. This past weekend the weather was supposed to be nice - expect for the heat - so on July 30th, 2010 my family...
