Re: BOL, pick it apart

I thought of this too when I first seen it. Problems I found are as follows.... Someone does live there yr round. Kind of like park rangers, and some people are always camping there too. Planes and boats bring visitors in on a regular bases. Its not quite as ''out there'' as you would think. I would...

Re: The Official ZS DEBTSQUAD: BODY COUNT thread.

We had been on the credit car merry go round for a few yrs now. we would run them up, then fight to pay them back down. But then one of the worst things that could have happened did.... our house burnt down. I guess something good can even come out of something so horrible. We killed all the credit ...

Re: A Challenge for you.

Ok, I just re -read the op post. Apparently I missed the part about having '' no supplies''. I took it to mean, I have what I have now, and the 10k was just extra to spend to get ready for the zombies. My apoligies. And I will have to agree with YT now, I would not be in that situation to begin with...

Re: rationing

Final thought about rationing. All the survival books I've read and all the classes I've taken concentrate on water, since it's much more immediate to survival than food. The conventional wisdom on water in a survival situation seems to be that you should drink when you're thirsty, rather than atte...

Re: rationing

I must say, I am a little shocked. I was planing on about 2000 calories a day, x 4 people, assuming the kids would eat a little less, and the adults a little more. I have never considered the calorie content that important untill now. I tried to make a menu of foods we eat now, that store well, and ...

Pick your disaster, as long as it will cause the supermarkets and such to close down, and there is no longer a food supply to buy anywhere. Your stuck with what you have.

Here is my personal rule on bugs, snakes, and critters of all kind. When I am outside in your home, I will only kill you if your on the menu for dinner, or your trying to harm someone. But when you come into MY HOME, I assume the same, your trying to eat me, so I must kill you. I don't go outside an...

Re: Leaving right away Vs. Stay put for a few days/weeks

This is a hard subject for me. I would love to ''bug out'' but can't. Money prevents me from buying another location at the moment, and the idea of leaving with two small children isn't going to be too great an idea either. Sure we have a bug out box, we keep gas ready, and if it was just a local cr...
