Re: Riots in St Louis?

Gov Nixon declared a state of emergency, and imposed a midnight - 5am curfew on Ferguson today. Hopefully that will lead into the peaceful protesters heading home at about that time... leaving the police to be able to more actively protect the city and it's shops since the looters won't have the pe...

Repacking car GHB / Get to work bag

It is the equivalent of my spring cleaning; I am going through a lot of my supplies and am needing to inspect / repack my car kit. It is a daily drive vehicle and due to where I drive, I cant have any weapons or ammo. The goal is 48hrs or so of emergency supplies. What else do you think I should hav...

East coast storm 9/8/12

Well the power has been out for a few hours already and people already seem to be hoarding at the fast food joints and I expect shelves to be cleared shortly as people always are unprepared (except you all!).

Re: Magnesium Fire Starter Failures! Check yours!

I agree everyone should always regularly test their gear. Doesn't everyone light 5 to 10 fires a weekend, just to see what works? :) Seriously, the firesteel rods (often also included on a magnesium bar) are often a new experience for folks. I have seen a number of people who couldnt start a fire w...

Re: New hydration bladder: Camelbak vs PLatypus

I have a few camelbaks (Hoss & mule) and can fit my hand in to clean them. Camelbak sells their own cleaning stuff too. Haven't had any problems with mine yet.

Re: 12 dead and 3.9 Million Without Power in Mid-Atlantic St

Power came back on early morning. Either way, I know I will be doing another prep shopping spree shortly based off this.

Note: I was going to post more but the cell tower near me lost power again. Goes to show you never can count on anything.

Food cooler reviews?

I did a search and wasn't able to find out the most used, best to have, and types of coolers available for storing food. This may be due to the fact the search came up with cooler as in the temperature and not the item. So, I am moving across town to a apartment from my town house and I am going thr...

Re: DIY attached storage shed rennovation

And officially this project is now dead... gotta move or I will face a $200+ a month rent increase. On the flip side, I will be saving $200 a month for now on.

Re: DIY attached storage shed rennovation

Nice job! Did they get the drain fixed? Nope, maintenance folks suck at doing projects they really don't want to do. Also the bad news is that they want me to move now, "to allow more families" to move in, but in reality they want it because they can charge them 1 1/2 times what I am paying. So for...

Re: DIY attached storage shed rennovation

Well this project has been shelved until mid February due to a change in work schedule and temperatures. The maintenance folks closed out my 3rd work order effectively peeving me off and only driving me further into getting a plumber out here.

Major faceplam last night - odd situation

The brief is that I was headed back from the base commissary and I saw a vehicle parked in the middle of the road with hazards on. The situation turned into a missing intoxicated person with suicidal intent. During the time after 911 was called, I didn't have my medic bag (facepalm) but also didn't ...
