  1. Coronavirus
    Rather than saying what we got right about the next plague (Coronavirus), let's talk about what we got wrong. By discussion what we got wrong then hopefully we can work on those short comings. I was wrong about transmission rates. I expected the next plague to travel the world much faster...
  2. Coronavirus
    Just was wondering when I first heard about covid-19. I think it must have been this post on Jan 4th https://www.survivalistboards.com/showpost.php?p=19964718&postcount=1 We had almost 2 months of advance notice to get ready. I remember when kev posted the stores out of stock thread feb 27th...
  3. Coronavirus
    It seems that a lot of so called "preppers" are taking a whole lotta unnecessary risks to get "a few more items", to check stocks in stores, and/or to observe how others are handling things. It just utterly baffles me how someone can consider themselves a prepper yet take unnecessary risks at a...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Was scrolling through my Facebook feed when an ad came up for a prepping facebook page. The ad was something along the lines of "Best prepping website on the Internet." We all know SurvivalistBoards is the best prepping / survivalist site on the internet. Besides that, I thought sure, I will...
  5. General Discussion
    If tensions rise to the point of no return (civil war or similar), those of us who would gather as an organized force and hold the line, whether the line is in the wood line or on Broadway street - for our families, our values and our constitution - will be be remembered as patriots? Or...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    What is a prepsteader? It is someone who combines prepping and homesteading. However, the complete answer is a little more complicated. To see the whole picture we need to go back to at least the 1970s, or maybe the early 1980s. What we consider prepping today was everyday life during the...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Is it possible to live too far in the boonies? Yes is it. There comes a point where it is not feasible to live in a rural area, and find gainful employment. There also comes a point where high speed internet ends. Believe it or not, not even dial-up is not available in all areas. Let’s...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I started to type this in response to a PM, but thought it would probably be better served as a thread: The world will most likely NOT end tomorrow. Nor 5 years from now. Statistically speaking the most likely disaster are those which impact the smallest number of people. House fire being #1...
  9. Book Reviews
    Your electrical power fails due to a storm, terrorist attack, EMP or other catastrophe. Hyperinflation leads to an economic collapse and food and medical supplies stop flowing to the cities. A pandemic spreads death around the globe. This book offers specific, practical advice and instruction...
  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    If you have attempted to talk about prepping with anyone, have you found that people generally think you are crazy? The only person I talk in-depth prepping with in my brother. He is what I would consider to be a serious prepper (has food,water, and guns buried in multiple locations, camo...

  13. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    So I am heading out to the woods for 4 days/3 nights next weekend along with a few friends. This will really be the first trip i have taken in a year that has been longer than a night due to caring for sick family members & being in the first year of my job doesnt give me much time to escape...
  14. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Just my opinion, but we have several established Ebola sticky threads. Everytime something new happens we get 3-5 brand new threads to wade through. I would ask posters to find which established thread your post belongs in and add it there.
  15. Events, Connections and Get togethers
    Anyone from around my area and actually prep for disasters by going out and hiking in general (low-level PT basically). I help host a class once a month in different places in the local national forest, but that's not what this is about so I'm not going to sell it. I'm just interested if their...
