  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Lets say you have municipality electricity and natural gas...... Something happens and you are in 'black out', with no gas. What do you think about having a couple of 100lb propane tanks for SHTF? .......
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    The news has gotten so bad I had to start limiting myself. As if the Covid-19 pandemic was not bad enough, now we have widespread riots and civil unrest. Plus, I look for tensions between the United States and China to get worse. Good news though, the local Dollar Store has plenty of canned...

    If you are medical worker you are fighting this war. If you an essential worker providing essential goods and services you are fighting this war. If you are non-essential and staying home you are assisting the war effort. If you are non-essential but going to work for survival you are a...

    Texas announced it is going to reopen in various levels. Certain places such as restaurants will be able to reopen with with a very limited seating capacity. My wife and I have talked it over, we will be staying home for several months. We go through the drive through at McDonalds, Burger...

    https://www.legitgov.org/WHO-Pushed-Draconian-Lockdown-Rules-were-Followed-Dr-Fauci-and-Dr-Birx-Ruin-US-Economy I think it's time to say goodbye to the WHO. And I don't mean the band or the Dr.
  7. Coronavirus
    Went to the local corner store to get gas for a fishing trip tomorrow. At the store were two parents and their two children. I am going to guess the children were both below the age of 10. We have a county order that says only one family member in the store at a time. Copy of the order was...

    A Coronavirus positive lady who lives an hours drive south of my location decided to leave her apartment, and was arrested. Since this article was posted on the local newspaper website, I think it has been determined she can be charged with a crime...
  9. Coronavirus
    How has your neighborhood been since things went wonky? My neighbors have been great. Nobody that I’ve talked to has been out of anything, and we’re all ending our conversations with “let us know if you need anything” and “keep well!” I’ve heard of multiple neighbors checking in with the...
  10. Coronavirus
    I just learned that for my county, they are predicting that peak for my area will be june or July. I am assuming that this is similar to other similar counties. The good news is NY will be immune by then so there will be plenty of ventilators available that they are done with. I guess this...

    I tried to get enough to not shop for three weeks, but we're running out of a couple things, and it looks like it's only going to be 2 1/2 weeks. In a few days, I'm going shopping, and this time, I'll get enough for four weeks. A great chef needs ingredients... This is your big chance to...
  12. Coronavirus
    I wonder if the COVID 19-infected person in northern California could have been infected by a contaminated package or letter delivered to his or her home. Does anybody know if public-health officials are exploring this possibility?
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Just opening up a topic about clothes colors and patterns which would satisfy both grey man tactics and offer some camo benefit. For example, black leather boots instead of running shoes with reflective trim. My favorite is using flannel-type shirts in earth tones. Not sure how effective it...
  14. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Article I posted on AllOutdoor http://www.alloutdoor.com/2017/02/14/cities-become-big-rebuild/ Worse case situation, a nuke goes off in a major population area, how does the nation relocate a million people? Even with a dirty bomb, how do we abandon a city the size of New York and rebuild?

    And you thought you had it bad.... Some headlines 'Thugs randomly shooting at anyone' in Espírito Santo" This is a small State on the southern coast of Brazil - 50 dead so far. Police in Brazil have gone on strike, leaving the country unarmed and left in a "Purge" like chaos. In 30 cities...
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Okay, so I have been hearing a lot of people talk about grey man/woman philosophy. I know it is to be unnoticeable and to blend in to the surrounding crowd. With all the preps, weapons, and huge packs wouldn't it go against that principal? (I guess it would be more of an urban situation than a...
  17. Urban Survival
    Situational awareness is an important part of living in the city, however I've recently found that covering my back on the move is extremely difficult to do. I glance back occasionally but it is easy for someone to sneak up behind you in-between glances. It is also hard to identify other people...
  18. Urban Survival
    I'm thinking a putting together a go bag/mini bug out bag for talking with me to work and when I'm out and about. Ideally it would need to allow me to get home (about an 8 hour walk) or get to some other place of safety that could be a few days away. I live in the suburbs and work in the city...
  19. Military Weapons Forum
    This is a serious question that I'm posing here. I hope that we can discuss this topic without the usual breakdown into caliber wars. My question is what do you all think about the recent terrorist shooting in San Bernadino, CA where the terrorists used AR15s (.223) rifles achieving a kill...

    Living in a heavy populated county with a high crime rate and being unable to move away, what are some preventive measures I can add to my home, to help my family and I if we needed to SIP, due to this unpredictable world?
