Re: The world's most ridiculous bug out gear!

The ridiculous part has a lot to do with the price tag and not so much to do with the contents. https://www.preppi.co/collections/frontpage/products/the-prepster-black-ultra-survival-bag?variant=34911933383 Wow.

Re: World War Flea - the Flea Apocolpsye in Real time
