Re: Hurricane Patricia...strongest recorded by NHC AOR

Hey guys, just thought I'd chip in a bit. I have several family members that live in Guadalajara. They are reporting that they are OK and that "it's not too bad". They are reporting stronger winds than normal and constant rain. Guadalajara tends to have "good" (strong) storms often so most people ar...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

Filled and sealed up two 5 gal buckets with rice in mylar bags. 25 lbs each with 2000cc oxygen absorbers. Costco has 50 lb bags of long grain white rice for about $18.

Need to do the same with beans next.

Re: water filters - what's everyone using now a days

I have both a Sawyer Squeeze and a Sawyer Mini. I use the Mini for hiking. I'm thinking of adding a carbon filter to the the line so the Sawyer takes care of parasites and crap and the carbon takes care of the taste and pesticides, etc, although the latter don't really appear out in the mountains.

Beartooth - Walkie talkie smartphone case?

Mods, I did a search for this but I wasn't able to find something. Please nuke this thread if this has been talked about before. I came across the Beartooth, which is more or less a walkie-talkie case for smartphones (looks like Android and iOS for now) that basically turns your phone into a 128-bit...

Re: CERT Bag, CERT Team members chime in

Funny enough I also work from home, don't have an EDC and our vehicles have a GHB. Quit copying me CapsLock! I would recommend to add a sturdy blanket like a wool blanket. It has multiple uses, like being an improvised stretcher. Also, a rope of some kind. Mine's a 300 lb 50 ft rope. The rope was ad...

Re: North Korea Saber Rattling

Would China and Russia even allow that to happen though? I'm sure most North Koreans don't realize how close they are to annihilation because of the state-run media and communications, but I doubt China and Russia would let nukes go off in their backyard and a US occupation of NK. I think endless ai...

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

With the Ruble falling and Russia going bankrupt, I'm getting a bit concerned as to what the fall/bankruptcy of Russia could mean. They're not likely to scale down operations in Ukraine in an effort to save money so I think Putin will try to convince it's people (because it's sorta true) that their ...
