Re: New Asian tick with new disease possibilities

https://arstechnica.com/science/2019/07/savage-tick-clone-armies-are-sucking-cows-to-death-experts-fear-for-humans/ Yup, red about that. I fear when these things somehow cross-breed with lonestar ticks, and we have an army of clone ticks that make you allergic to red meat. :shock: It isn't just red...

Re: Sick in a Bug Out. What do you do?

Let me, by all means necro this thread. I have been going on about 5 weeks now with a cold. Just your average run-of-the-mill cold. It started in the sinuses, I took some decongestants, and it dropped to my lungs. I happen to have Albuterol the nebulizer on hand try and treat myself, and I still got...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

I finally got a UPS for my CPAP. It was a huge hole in my preps. Emergency power is a work-in-progress at Bunker de MP . :crazy: I was having trouble with this.

Re: What did you today for your BOV/how did you prepare your BOV

Not sure if any of you are into LED headlight upgrades. But everyone on my Jeep forum is raving about these Trucklight knockoffs. Trucklights are the high end led headlight. That generally run several hundred dollars. These knockoffs are supposedly about 99% as good. And they only cost $99 in a 7 i...

Re: Lets Talk: Air Rifles!

No that is with the new compressor. With hand pump it would take me about 75 pumps for a 400cc reservoir. I attempted to do the tank and stopped after 250 pumps. The pump is great for your rifles if you are not going to on the range all day. You will get pretty tired after a while or get in really g...

Re: Lets Talk: Air Rifles!

For the 90 cubic tank it took me about two and a half minutes from 3000 to 4500. The 68 cubic foot tank took me about the same amount of time from 500 PSI to about 1,500 PSI. I filled the reservoir in my hot sun in about a minute and a half. Most of these jobs are topping off existing tanks. They're...

Re: Apartment heating

As an addition tape a heap of those cheap car shade things on your windows. To increase heat? I thought they kept heat out? Or maybe we are thinking of different things? They reflect radiant heat and provide a tiny amount of insulation. If the radiant heat is coming from inside, then it will reflec...

Re: Lets Talk: Air Rifles!

Well, I filled my first tank today. I took it from 3000 psi to 4500 and under 7 minutes. I did a partial fill in the untested tank. Everything seemed to go quite well temperature was down I'm still not going to fill the untested tank fully. I am going to have to find someplace to hydro test it real ...

Re: What did you today for your BOV/how did you prepare your BOV

Have a 2011 Dodge RAM 2500 extended cab an 8-foot bed. I put high top cab on it with the idea being able to camp in the back comfortably. I found it not so easy, is it gets extremely cold and the bed of the truck is still pretty hard for my old bones. I have always enjoyed hammock camping and it was...

Re: Apartment heating

I've thought about this topic as well. I don't live in an apartment building but I do live in a rental duplex. The unit that I have does have natural gas for heating purposes, but in the event of a long-term SHTF, I was actually thinking of a pot belly stove system out one of the side windows that p...

Re: Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink

Thanks Raptor. Always enjoy your input. I know that someone mentioned distilling water. I would like to mention that distilling is VERY energy intensive and still only makes water safer. Chemically contaminated water will still have volatiles that can evaporate and condensate with the distilled wate...

Re: Lets Talk: Air Rifles!

Those compressors sound like something I could fill my dive tanks with and I never bought one for that either. It would be nice to fill my own bottles and try to show a safer way of filling bottles in the event of a catastrophic failure. The dive tanks get put in a tub of water when filling them. b...

Re: Lets Talk: Air Rifles!

Yeah these compressors go up to 4500 PSI. The PCP is definitely an investment but one that I think is well worth it for long-term viability. I can cast my own rounds that I know will fit my rifles so as long as there is lead available always have ammo andare's pretty endless. I can pump rifle up wit...
