Re: For the Prepper who has everything

I don't need a fighter jet. I don't need a fighter jet. I don't need a fighter jet. I can't fly one, the local airport probably doesn't have a hangar I could use and the storage fees would be nuts. Although, I probably could offset some of the cost by renting the jet to the local PD or maybe one of...

Re: Stuff I Carry on Family Vacation

Things I also at least have available in the hotel room, but generally carry: 1. Ankle Brace (because I'm a klutz, and while I can get to the store easily if I mess up my wrists, not so much with the ankle) 2. Umbrella (for rain and for sun) 3. Tiny tube of sunscreen 4. Lip balm with sunscreen (are ...

Re: New York denies request to allow 44 unvaccinated students back in class

It isn't 130 positive results. It is 20,000,000,000 positive results. It is completely changing the face of mankind from one scarred with pox and dying young to one of a long and healthy life. You want to see the shit hit the fan for real? Take vaccines out of society tomorrow and make us unable to...

Totally non-prep, but I have books. Lots of books. I rarely ever go anywhere without a book.

To me, it's actually an essential survival item--for my brain. :clownshoes:
This reminds me, I need to figure out a Faraday cage for my spare Kindle and a solar charger one of these days.

Re: New York denies request to allow 44 unvaccinated students back in class

No need to conflate other issues here. In this particular case the government is reflecting the overwhelming will of the people out of concern for public safety supported strongly by science and validated by over 130 years of positive results. The fact that some have fallen prey to a disinformation...

Re: What Would Happen If Humans Suddenly Disappeared?

I have a DVD box set of the History Channel's series 'Life After People'. Its an interesting show and sounds similar to this one. It's not survival, its what happens to everything on earth when there's no more people to interfere with or maintain it. Watch here https://www.history.com/shows/life-af...

This tsunami was apparently caused by an underwater landslide, rather than an earthquake. Although I doubt that distinction matters much to the many, many victims.
It might make a difference in the ability to warn people...if they've got any warning systems in place.

Re: Buying Brand New Truck?

Hubby ends up driving on lots of sand (delivering to sand plants). He has a 4x4 dually and said it works fabulously on the sand, but he's also generally got a pretty good amount of weight in the back because he's hauling tools and a compressor.

We use plastic Topo Chico bottles. The bigger ones are about 1.5L.

I take a smaller one in my little lunch bag with all ...
