Re: Bug Out Gear Deals (Post 'em when you find 'em) I

Ten bucks is the best price I've seen for a 6-gallon water container in a while. Also I think you can get a discount if you do their survey.

ClassicFirearms has different sorts of AKs for $599; of course then you have to add in shipping, transfer fees, etc.

Yeah, I was going to say try to have an old bag that doesn't look very valuable, but making it look like you're just taking recycling to the dump is even better.

Re: Preparedness for the Elderly

One big thing to consider with the elderly is the type of food they are used to eating. Their digestive systems are not as adaptable as a younger person's. If your plan involves providing food for elderly loved ones during an emergency, you'd better not plan on serving up MREs or they will be MISERA...

Re: What are you looking for in a homestead?

When you advertise the property, have pictures of it with chickens, goats, solar panels, game animals, creeks... even if you don't really go into them big time, you can at least say (truthfully, don't lie!) that you did those things on the property for a while before you got rid of them to move, etc...

Severely Autistic Person at the Door

So today the doorbell rang and I opened it. We rent a house in a very low-crime area and unfortunately there's no peephole or chain on the metal door so you just have to open it to see who it is. There stood a ~12 year old boy drooling and looking around kind of crazily, and when I opened the door h...

Re: Helpful certifications/training?

Check with you local vocational schools and community colleges. They sometimes offer everything from beekeeping to blacksmithing.

Personally, besides medical and "tactical" courses, I am also interested in bicycle repair, auto repair, gunsmithing, and permaculture.

Same as the other guys said. I'd take the injection and count myself lucky that I got one. My wife would probably not be as excited about it, especially for the kids, but that would change once you start seeing friends and relatives dying from disease.

Sorry to continue this discussion, but I just realized something with that "chest rig." It looks like it's backwards! The crossing of the shoulder straps is in the back... so that means the pouches are in the back. Making this more of a fanny pack then a chest rig. Still a good deal if you don't min...
