Re: Ice Age trail weekender

Great looking trip. Ice Age trail looks like an ideal place for a MBO. We are just north or you in WI/MN.

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

To piggyback off of this post OtterBox Cases Thought folks might be interested in this. Looks like Otterbox is giving away certain outdated models of the pursuit/20 & 40 with a minimum direct purchase. Those two cases are normally around $20 and $35. http://www.otterbox.com/Pursuits/40/otr" onclick=...

Re: How Are You Planning/Preparing For Retirement?

Started with a 15 year mortgage, then refinanced to a 10 year after my divorce. Things are really tight right now, but if I can make it 5 more years, no more house payments! I plan on being debt free at retirement with a house and vehicle paid off. I used to contribute 10% to a 403b but but it to 6%...

Here is a deal for you. SteriPEN Traveler Mini Water Purifier. Today only $25. I hummed and hawed about getting one of these last summer. I'm glad I waited so I could get this one at a greatly reduced price. I still have my filter and tablets for redundancy, but the speed and ease of use of this for...

The 3 I stockpile are .22LR, 9mm and 12 gauge. I agree with the OP that it is good to focus on 3 when STOCKPILING (anything over 200 rounds), but also have a few boxes for each gun I own.
