:oh: I would wonder why they want you in the basement? Concern about gunfire?
That would be the first assumption. I've heard of the suggestion from police a few times in my life.

Re: When the police recommend you shelter in your basement, but you only have a crawlspace

Ah, hadn't even thought about waste, a couple more 5 gallon buckets for sure. We use sawdust up at the hunt camp, so my wife's used to the process. Excellent call. Maybe 3 or 4 shower curtains to make a "room" or two which will be warmer than the full footprint.

When the police recommend you shelter in your basement, but you only have a crawlspace

As I recently posted in WWYD, the family and I recently moved to a small older house. Since finishing college, I've rented in low-rise or high-rise concrete buildings. This past week I was scrolling through social media and found a local article where police had advised a neighbourhood to shelter in...

Re: There's no time like the end of times for a good Bourbon

Back in March or April 2020 I set out make a killer manhattan. I've never been well versed in the world of bourbons, so I started with a google search and settled on woodford reserve. I experimented with the ingredients I had on hand, which weren't all traditional, but I ended up with a killer manha...

Re: There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

My wife is anti glue trap, pro snap trap, I considered carrying an airsoft pistol around the house, since they're only field mice, but they've yet to present themselves in waking hours, so I haven't tried that yet.

Re: There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

Poison bait in hidden places works wonders. Tom cat is the brand I use. OP mentioned dogs, so poison bait probably isn't a great idea. No matter how well you hide it, dogs and cats are still at risk of of catching a rodent trying to flee from its own burning, melting guts. When said poisoned rodent...

Re: There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

Mice can scale pretty much anything if it means getting free food. We had that problem years ago before I started at the railroad. We moved into a shitty little apartment in Kansas City that was apparently a magnet for mice. We found that any holes patched with metal mesh was great for stopping mic...

There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

Been a busy few months. Mrs, baby and me moved out of the apartment in the big bad city to a small rental house in a slightly better city nearby. Shortly after we started to move stuff in, we discovered the house had a mouse issue when we lost a small amount of shelf stable groceries. We threw a bit...

Re: Does everyone's kit match in your household?

Just ordered a second Tasmanian Tiger SW Tac25 pack for my wife. This will be (part of) her Christmas present. Life is crazy busy right now by all standards, let alone in the middle of a pandemic. I'll be happy to have our family bug out bags squared away better than they have been.

As a new dad, time. Everything takes much longer with a baby. Even content infants need to be checked on regularly in car seats and any sleep space that isn't a crib or bassinet.

Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

And also, if you've paid into a survival compound, you should expect notice that they'll be opening their doors by November 3rd. If you're a member of one of those places, you probably have more money than all of us schmucks on ZS combined. https://www.theblaze.com/news/survival-camps-to-activate-op...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I think it was in ZS (maybe the last FA chat) we talked about a protective cover for the interlocking bits of a takedown rifle. I finally got a bit of time to make up a crude set for my '92 take down. Aesthetic will be improved over time, but they function for now. https://i.imgur.com/zFbtUfd.jpg ht...

A few years ago, I went to the home of a gentleman from my gun club to borrow something. Upon arrival, he lead me to the basement, into the unfinished laundry room.

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

Thanks guys. I'll wade through the US dealers list. Neither botach or walmart have the SW TAC 25 listed. Maybe it's too new. Seems a perfect balance for the size of bug out bag and grey man without compromising on tactical features I love in other bags.
