Yeah, my plan is to have the majority of my rifle ammo on a chest rig. And those two pouches have a light and multitool.

Loud Cordura

Reworking my battle belt again, and I've acquired some surplus canteen pouches and a new tactical tailor harness. The thing is, those canteen pouches must have an ungodly amount of starch in them because they are so stiff and so loud! The harness isn't much better. Besides just use and abuse, is the...

Re: Food storage help

Agreed. Portion sizes are very deceiving, which is why I was trying to go the calorie counting route. That is the only way I can think of to accurately estimate nutritional needs. The X number of pounds of beans/rice/oils/honey/whatever method has the same problem IMO, how can you estimate how many ...

Food storage help

Is this for real? I was experimenting using the myfitnesspal app as a way to keep track of food storage and get a better idea of the nutritional breakdown of stuff we have on the shelves. For instance, exactly how many calories are available and further details about the fats, proteins and carbs pre...

Re: US Palm Defender

Have some friends that picked them up and I'm looking hard at them. From experience I can say: --They are extremely fast to put on -- Light weight -- The coverage could be better --The construction feels solid, but I haven't spent a lot of time looking at the itty bitty details. Overall, like a good...

Re: Winter car survivial

I went camping during my states worst ice-snowstorm in history and spent the night in a nylon tent in a cold weather sleeping bag. I was warm and fine, and my two sleeping bags can be put together to make room for another or a wee kid 2 1/2 people fine. Add a little food and water and I see no reas...

Winter car survivial

Need some ideas. Situation: 1 or 2 adults and a toddler stranded in a 4 door sedan. Time of year is winter, AO Pacific Northwest so temps range in the 20's - 40's. Could be worse, but still bloody cold IMO. First line strategy would be to stay with the car and assuming it is still running, use it fo...

If you used this water for irrigation, then wouldn't in theory those same contaminants end up in whatever you are irrigating for the most part?

I'm also amazed at how much water it takes to wash dishes. Even when trying to be frugal about it with shortages in mind.

Re: Erik's Upgraded Drinking Water Storage w/Pics

Something I've been wanting to try is to carry around a gallon of water for a day and use it for everything from drinking, to washing to cooking. And then to come to the conclusion that a gallon is woefully inadequate.

Why do first aid kits lack kerlix?

Can anyone make a recommendation on a good commercial first aid kit? Everything I come across all seems to lack tape and kerlix and that perplexes me.

Do people here tend to build their own?

This is a fascinating thread. I can't really think of anyone who fills this role in on my mom's side. My grandfather tries but ultimately fails because he is an enabler and will not say "no". That side of the family is a train wreck and I have little to do with them. My father in law however seems t...

With that said, I think that the OP was just letting people know that, if you are in reasonable health, you should be OK going a few days without food. I think the OP was raving about fasting like a fanatic, wildly exaggerating it's benefits while being blindly dismissive of it's risks. :P Sounds l...

Re: You're not going to starve (right away)

If you were hungry and didn't know when (or if) it would end there is no way to know what your reaction would be. You could really say that about anything you are practicing. If you run everyday, you don't exactly know how you would react if being chased by Zombies or a wild animal. But you sure as...

Re: You're not going to starve (right away)

Just as a thought, look at how heated this discussion is becoming at just the mere idea of going without food for a paltry two or three days. This largely contributes to the looting we saw in Haiti and other disaster areas I reckon. If you think your body is going to shut down on you after a couple ...
