Greetings fellow survivalists,

In this time of unrest and uncertainty about the future, we are reminded why we all came to SurvivalistBoards in the first place. Some to teach, some to learn and hopefully all can do a little of both. Many of us have been at this for years while others are opening their eyes for the first time. No matter which of these categories you may fall into, you are here and consider yourselves welcomed.

So without further ramblings, it is with great enthusiasm I get to announce a unique new contest series here at SurvivalistBoards starting mid-November.

How are they unique you ask… for starters they are not sponsored, endorsed or otherwise affiliated with Vertical Scope, Second Media, or any of the various owners, advertisers, and what have you. Nope, these contests and all the prizes are brought to you 100% by the Moderator/Admin Team.

The mystery prize boxes will contain new (NOS) and refurbished (like new) items. No two boxes will be the same and the contents will not be shared in advance of the contest. Some of the old-timers may remember the “mod box” giveaway many years ago, this will be similar.

Each contest will have its own parameters for entry and how the winner will be chosen.

We do have some basic rules:

  • Due to international shipping restrictions and varying laws in foreign countries, we cannot ship overseas at this time so unfortunately the contests are only open to individuals that have shipping addresses in the US or Canada.
  • The chosen winner will need to provide a Name and a Shipping Address in the US or Canada to the Mod team (via PM). We will not share this with anyone outside of our team.
  • One entry per individual per contest.
  • The contest threads are for actual entries only, general comments will be removed.
  • Each contest will have its own specific rules included in the announcement.
  • All regular forum rules apply.
  • Failure to follow the rules will result in forfeiture of entry into the contest.

You can anticipate the first contest being posted on or about 14Nov2021.



And for those of you that are still leary from the "vax passport required" thread I posted... I assure you, this one is NOT a joke.

I am not a 'Survivalist' - but the contests should be interesting, to say the least.

For contest #2 -- The first thing most women grab when they leave their house, in a hurry or not, is their purse. Would a purse, with its current contents, count as one item or is that cheating? :)

For the purpose of the contest, the goal is to identify the 5 critical survival items that we would leave our house with.

Taking a purse or BoB/GHB full of gear defeats the purpose so try to select items assuming you dont have that entire pile of gear

#2 Contest guidelines updated.

Nice haul husker. And congrats to you as well. I didn't know anything about the first contest but I did start following the sub forum and will get a notice every time a new one comes out. But again congrats to you and I'm happy for you.

Oh I am very curious and will let you know the second I open it. My hands do shake somewhat due to tremor so may not be the finest photos but I will keep taking them until I get a good shot.

It was a little delicate telling my parents I won a prize off a survivalist website. They think everyone must be a maniac. :LOL: I finessed it.

When does the next contest start?
We only accumulated enough to fill two prize boxes.
If/when we accumulate enough to fill another, we will have another contest.
Keep in mind that this stuff is all donated by the members of the MOD team and not coming from some corporate entity.

I got the box yesterday.

Product Bag Luggage and bags Font Wood


Very nicely packed and sent priority mail which is not cheap (tips hat).

I started taking stuff out.
Font Material property Office supplies Paper Writing

Survival food! I am saving it for SHTF but it is a nice compact little MRE type thing, very nice. The black knife is my personal folder.

Publication Font Book Material property Wood


Nice memo book!

Vision care Goggles Eyewear Helmet Sunglasses

A very nice pair of glasses in carrying case. Bonus image of my calico on the floor, and my foot (hand tremors suck!).

Hand Fluid Finger Thumb Drink


Hand sanitizer! I work retail AND ride the bus so this is really appreciated.

Outerwear Neck Orange Sleeve Amber


A nice length of paracord I will have to keep it away from the cats. (Bonus finger image at the bottom).

Brown Wood Amber Textile Sleeve

A knife AND carrying case! You can replace the blade as well, they have a way to take it apart.

Technology Electronic device Font Gadget Rectangle


Flash drive (will have to check to see if files on it, if not I can download files from here), and mini tarps about 40 inches square, good for shelter or catching rainwater.

Orange Amber Wood Personal protective equipment Peach


This one took a minute to figure out. There were 10 of them. They are plastic. Package said "double cuffs". I took it out and stared at it for a while and figured out they are flexi-cuffs good for restraining bad guys. Could be useful when I start dating! :p

All in all a very nice box, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I will get out my BOB again and fill it up with this.
