Re: Custom backpacks for the homeless

Looks like gear that would get taken away or sold pretty darn quick. I wonder how many tarps equal that spiffy sidewalk tent or how many quality surplus bags equal that custom backpack.
Yes they need shelter and gear..but custom gear?

Re: Driveway chain or cable?

I would go with nothing less than 3/4 inch cable. .. Covering it with many small sections of pipe to make it hard to cut or saw through. Like some locks that can be found. I don't know a thing about tensile strength. . But I would back it up with mini home made tank barriers like the ones used in ww...

Re: Suggestions on long term living BOV or camper

If you don't need the room then yes something small is better than large. If you can live with a 8x6 or even a 12 x 7 that is the way to go. Less to heat in winter, less to cool in summer. I would wire the interior lightingfor low voltage (12 vdc ) led lighting on the interior. Composting toilet (en...

Your holes are too big.. That is the usual reason your flames get too big.. If the flames are not all blue you are optimized. Or it pressurizes to much and blows the flame out.

Watch it all on CNN as I go to the local police office that was built in the 60's that has a bunker underneath, make a deal with the chief to show him the access point for giving me entry. (most don't know bunkers were built under the offices)

Live there.. Until it's safe to come up.. start over.

Re: Why Bear Grylls sucks.

If we are talking best survival in a situation like car breakdown in the middle of no place or getting lost in the woods then the best survival advice is

Do not move. Find the best spot to hold up and wait for rescue..

Self rescue ends badly more often than not for most average people.

Re: World War Z movie - Brad Pitt and Paramount! W000T!

Saw the movie..
Definitely not the apocalypse I would choose. Those zombies are way too damn fast..
Decent movie.not fantastic in any way but worth the price.
Plot was thin.but not worse than many movies.
Have not read the book.the movie had not encouraged me to in any way.
