It was great to see so many of you guys at Hold The Line. There were some great shots in the ZS team. You guys got that 200 yard steel swinging.

I'm sorry, I'm still a little skeevy about the viable bug eggs in rice. Doesn't that shit get ETO sterilized before shipping?

Re: eloo: odorless, waterless, solar toilet

Interesting idea. I bet a DIY version with a black, plastic, 55gal drum, some vent stack and attic fan will do the same. Curious how the thing sits in a house. I assume the drum needs sunlight, and the toilet is gravity feed. What kind of locaiton would you have to build it on?

Re: My crazy wife is trying to build a PAW bathtub in our garden

You could always wrap a coil of soft copper pipe (like the kind you use to hook up your icemaker in the freezer) around the inside of your cheap charcoal grill. Get the coals hot and run some wather through it. You'll get the water toasty.

Re: Lets see your garden/allotment! Hot Or Not?

I was originally going with twine for the trellis, but found some scrap fencing that worked much better.

Tell me about this Sven stuff. I've been putting out beer traps, thinking the leaf eaters were slugs. I haven't caught more than a few. That tells me it's something else.

Grow your own tobacco.

Some items will be worth more then others in a PAW. I can't help but think alcohol and tobacco will both be very important. Sugar and wheat will be way up on the list. So, can I grow my own tobacco in a SFG or similar set-up?

Re: Burying...stuff...of a survival nature...

Stock a decent library. Make sure you have a couple medical/first aid books - hard copy not CD-Rom. If you have access to a dry crawl space, go with a couple rubbermaid bins with mothballs for the blankets. Same with good quality rope. Use up the crawl space before you bother digging holes.

I've been working in Hospitals for years. It's like pulling teeth to get MD's to wear gloves.

The .mil gets tested for cooties more then the general population.

Of course the red food color stains everything. Ruins uniforms and gear.

Severe Trauma Simulations

www.techlinetrauma.com makes severe trauma simulators for the military. These things are nasty - but tough as hell. The early prototypes were handed over to the Navy Corpsmen at the Field Medical School at Camp Lejeune for their final simulation training. I'll see if I can find some pictures of that...
