Re: Are zombies a universal fear?

To me zombies aren't a fear, but an ideal of the worst case scenario. Preparing for zombies is preparing for anything to happen, if you feel prepared to outlive a zombie outbreak then you should be able to outlive anything that happens, but I figure I would answer your questions. 1. I believe zombie...

Re: J-Quake

All I can say is if ever there was anything I could point to as a reason that you should have a BoB this is one. I know for many people a BoB wouldn't have saved them and my condolences to their families. But I bet you there are thousands more people without home and food right now without any rescu...

Re: Are Coffee Cans Safe?

Regardless... wouldnt have happened if you hadnt heated it while dry. Okay it was crackling with water in it, and I get why it was smoking, because it was dry.

Re: Best fuel for BOB stove? Solid, liquid, or gas?

I don't have food that requires cooking in my BOB in the first place, merely stripped-down MREs, protein/vitamin bars, etc. If I can't eat it out of the package at warm body temperature, preferably on foot, I don't pack it. Bugging out and camping are two different activities. I pack MRE's too, fac...

Re: Are Coffee Cans Safe?

if you put it on the heat w/o water, you were likely causing the metal to expand at different rates (bottom vs sides) and that was the cause of the sound. Dont put dry pots on heat. Whether were talking coffee cans, anodized aluminum or even cast iron, dont put dry pots on heat! With water in the p...

Re: Best fuel for BOB stove? Solid, liquid, or gas?

Pound for pound, or ounce for ounce, I find not only is a butane stove lighter but requires less fuel to create the same amount of heat as alcohol. The butane is light weight and a canister of it lasts about a week. Where as a small bottle of denatured alcohol last only one session of water boiling....

possibly because the can has a plastic lining? I'm not sure though, as I only buy coffee in metallic vacuum bags
No plastic lining in this one, it has some sort of varnish it looks like though. Thanks for the link!

Are Coffee Cans Safe?

I bought myself some coffee in a can big enough to just squeeze my nalgene bottle inside of it. However in testing it out a concern has came up and I was wondering how safe it is to use these things to cook food and purify water. My concern rose when I went to boil some water in it, the can started ...

Re: An Armed Robbery

Seems like you give them a lot of credit for being common gang bangers. Only type of people who really take the time to plan stuff out in this much detail is mafia guys or small groups of criminals. I honestly however believe they were just common gang bangers.

Your scenario doesn't really compute for me. You say they aren't raiders but they tell me that either I share with them or they will take it by force. That's the moment they become raiders in my eyes. If it makes them raiders in your eyes then that is the scenario. Remember this is a generalized qu...

I could cook up food seal it in a air tight bag and take it on a hike without spoil. However after a...
