Re: Woods Walker in Memorium

Many here have said what I wanted to say more eloquently, but what a good dude! I was also inspired by WW for years and the world will be a poorer place without him in it.

Who has a skill to share?

Normally our meetings have been organized around a "skill builder" of some kind. In the past we've had skill builders on lock picking, wiring batteries in series and in parallel, gunsmithing tools, water filtration systems, and bulk food storage just to name a few. Usually, someone offers to teach a...

It has been too long!

Hey all, It's been a long time since I (or anyone else) has posted in here, but lately I have been thinking more and more about disaster prep. I just re-read the novel Lights Out by Halffast. It's a novel written in series by a guy on the Frugal Squirrel forum some time ago. https://www.giltweasel.c...

Re: Building a Battery Bank

What about concerns such as cost? Is weight a factor (the range can be from a few ounces to, say, 20-30lbs of lead acid batteries)? Do you wish to use solar panels to help extend the battery pack's capacity for your 5 day goal? What kind of equipment are you plugging in? Big difference between phon...

Building a Battery Bank

I'd like to build a mobile battery bank that I can keep at home for emergencies, but I'd also like it to be relatively easy to move so that I could take it camping. At one of our regular summer campouts our ZS chapter had a class on how to wire deep cycle marine batteries in series and in parallel a...

Re: Wintergeddon XIV JAN 17-20

Well, ARRGH; Made it down there way late, couldn't find you folks, then found that my freaking TENT wasn't packed (It'd been moved in a work party here to a really ODD place, next time I print the pack list not mentally check things off -.-) - Had to drop off a laser engraver on the way down and th...

Re: November meeting! Nov 17th 1pm

I move that we plan an optional post-meeting Airsoft game at Tacoma Airsoft Center nearby. I think you can rent all of the necessary guns and gear for 2 hours of play for like $20. It's indoors, but unheated. Any takers? I've been thinking of getting into Airsoft for a while now, but it might even h...

Hammock Campers: Speer Peapod For Sale $310

I need to get rid of some stuff that I don't use. When I got into hammock camping I bought this Speer Peapod as the "ultimate, keep you warm in a hammock, under-quilt". Basically, this thing goes around the out side of both you and your hammock to keep the wind off you and keep you nice and toasty. ...
