    In a long term survival situation, your equipment will need to be sustainable. Sustainable means that it will not run out, or that you can replace it from nature. It means that an item won't easily break, or if it does break then you can fix it. For instance, you can't really class cigarette...

    Listen everybody, your town square isn't the middle of town anymore. Our nation's capital has NO business being on the eastern seaboard next to an ocean. I just started a petition on the White House website to move the nation's capital to the middle of the country, near Kansas City...

    I could have place this comment in the financial section just as easily as first aid but I decided on general knowledge because this could affect almost anyone. I wear hearing aids because of my age and failing hearing. I have completed a hearing test that shows I have clear levels of hearing...

    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...

    Who else spends more time at risk of a true wilderness survival scenario? Are hunters inherently the best wilderness survivalists?

    The nature is beautiful and it's perfect, because humans have not managed to destroy it yet. Watching and observing wildlife can be very fascinating and "amusing" in some sort of way. Seeing predators seeking their prey, watching them stealthily and curiously. That's where the real action...

    I never used to drink much coffee, but going to work when it's dark and the bad influence of a coworker have gotten me into it. What are your plans and equipment for keeping the caffeinated black elixir of life a-flowin' during short term emergencies like a storm or power outage, or even...

    I'm looking for the most durable pants made. I need to be able to cut trees, ride dirt bikes, go hiking, etc. Most brands are very expensive so I don't want to make the wrong choice. I have some double front Carhartts but I don't know if other brands are more durable. For me the pants must have...
  15. Shotgun Forum
    So I recently bought a Mossberg HS12 shotgun and I wanted to share my experience with it so far and the reason I went this direction. I was using an H&R single shot for hunting small game. The model I have is a 162 which has a front blade sight and a rear fold down sight similar to the setup...

  17. Urban Survival
    Hi everyone, So I have been thinking of ways to better protect myself inside my second story apartment. I plan to bug in (Shelter in place) if anything bad happens and only bug out if my home is compromised (Burning, Collapsing, etc) as I don't really have any other place to go. I have a 3...
