Re: My INCH Bag Plus NEW!!!!! Wife's Bug Out Bag!

When I bought the UM 21, it didn't come with the seat pad. Personally, I don't have a need for it either. I added some additional MOLLE mag pouches a FAK and two canteen pouches. The setup is surprisingly comfortable as the weight sets high and is well distributed.

Thank you for showing your interesting setup.

You bug out while shit is bad, but plan to return once the shit has calmed down and normality is restored. INCH implies that it will not, within your expected lifetime, return to normal. Your house is no longer safe (or still there) and you will need to rebuild an entirely new life. The wilderness ...

Re: Survival "soft" skills?

A few things different people said reminded me that flexibility of the mind is critical. Staying alert to what is going on around us. Perceiving a situation as it actually is. Rolling with life's punches. Not getting hung up or despairing when bag things happen. In fact, cognitive re-framing to adj...

Dear All, I was made aware a few months ago that my very close friend, my brother, David Cawthorne Haines had been kidnapped by radical Islamist terrorists in Syria. I first met Dave in 1997 when he was working as an SFOR Force Protection Officer. He came to my Field Office on the Croatian/ Republik...

I agree with Aikibiker. Some of the best trained and reliable guys I've ever met were PMC's that worked with me. Loyal to the end.

Re: Cody fired from Dual Survival

I think the producers should hire my old friend Mykel Hawke (he really is an old teammate of mine) and let him and Joe "The Piss Drinker" Teti fight each each other to the death in a "Dual Thunderdome" scenario. I'll put my money on Mykey! http://scotty-stolenvaloroffendersexposed.blogspot.com/2013/...

If you wear anything other than good boots with good ankle support, you will get hurt. Also, there's a HUGE difference between rucking and running!
