Re: DIY Oral Rehydration Solution

to highlight a little on the above on the bicarb post: remember with Diarrhea you are losing bicarb (and thus will potentially become metabolically acidotic- usually corrected by excessive blowing off of C02 (acid) in the lungs). Depending on the loss due to diarrhea the acid-base imbalance can be s...

Re: Family Member is Kinapped (Real Life Scenario)

What would I do:
Hire 1 or more PI's and/or off duty detectives (if legal) to help me locate individual
Make police aware that I had hired a PI and tell them they need to be on stand-by
If they are unwilling to make something happen fast, have a contingency plan (if family member is in danger)

Re: What long arm and handgun are you using to bug out?

Brings another question, and maybe someone could direct me to a thread that already exists:

how many rounds are you actually taking with you if you have to bug out. do you have a number in mind if you bug out by vehicle? what if you have to walk/hike?

I think it would be nice to explore around the islands by boat before landing. I think that a boat c...

I was a paramedic for a few years before I went to veterinary school- so I feel very comfortable with medical and surgical treatment of humans and animals.

as part of a normal humans nervous physiology, we are not physically allowed to use our bodies to their full potential in order to prevent muscular, tendon and joint damage. there are a series of reflexes involved which "make our bodies quit" to prevent injury.
