    Hey Guys. I will be traveling to Haiti this year, and I want a rugged backpack that I don't mind if it gets dirty or torn. So I thought of my Alice Pack. The problem is, I don't know it the external frame would be a problem with TSA, and if it is within the size restrictions. I will have...

The girl suffered from being deaf, blindness and partial paralysis along with being easily confused due to the affects of the tumor and treatment. The girls parent is only suing for 100,000. They need to add 3 more...

    So another thread got me thinking, and I did not want to side track it. I find it interesting that government is becoming more incompetent the bigger it gets. Our State and federal governments are bigger and spending more money then ever in the history of our country. Their ability to...

    Was checking EBay for some folding pocket knives when I came across several postings for multiple folding knives by a seller who states they were seized by TSA. I always thought ALL items seized by TSA were destroyed, or am I wrong? So....if these prohibited carry on items are being sold, what...

    Hey everyone, I think its ridiculous that the TSA recanted on its decision to allow non-locking small blades (less than 2.3") in airplane carry-on, so I created this White House petition. We shouldn't have to be deprived of our necessary tools when we travel just because we can't afford a...

    What does it take to get your name on the no-fly list in America? Apparently you only need to be classified as a “prepper.” http://www.homelandsecurityus.com/archives/6962#more-6962

    Finally a precedent to let others do the same without getting arrested or beat down. Personally, I haven't flown since 2000 and after the TSA took over I had a real reason not to but after reading that a wise Oregon Judge made it easier for me to strip into my tighty whities (or less) and walk...

    There have been many reported incidents lately (probably more we haven't heard about) of passengers who have been left stranded on the tarmac, in many cases, without AC, water or bathrooms - not to mention screaming kids. Another incident happened this weekend on a Spirit Airline flight from LA...

    Below is an extended ramble and listing of the items within my FWPB. I'm hoping for feedback on what I have packed, what is deficient, and what I overlooked entirely. Thanks everyone! Also, what do you carry when you travel? ------------------ Every Day Carry ------------------ Keys - large...

    This is an excellent opinion blog by Richard Engel about the loss of individual freedom in the US. Not many in the media are complaining about the loss of freedom. Instead, they are parroting government propaganda word for word...

  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I just returned from a business trip to New Orleans. Not being the first trip since starting to prep, I was again faced with the harsh reality of still not having the first clue what I would do if I found myself stuck, out of town, during a disaster scenario. How would I travel thousands of...

    I've been doing a lot of thinking about those of us that simply refuse to fly anymore and finding out what our alternatives are. But I would also like to state this thread is NOT about why we should or should not fly - there are already plenty of threads on that. This is for those of us that...
