Re: Anyone Modify/DIY your gear?

Anyone DIY/Modify non-soft gear stuff, like say... knives, axes etc? Over the next few weeks I plan on re-handling a Gerber Parang, heavily modifying a GI Tanto, refinishing and rehandling a Cold Steel Sax and putting a new handle on my favorite old beater machete. Some excellent examples by the way...

Re: DIY coyote brown SBR/rucksack

Nice stitching job. I'd use it as a vehicle cache hauler but seems a bit too bulky for standard everyday rucksack. Using it to pack long-term survival kit from car to camp would be a pretty ideal setup. Stashing things like winter/cold weather gear, your survival/zombie library, long term food, larg...

Re: Color difference in gear

I think ACU is ugly and gimmicky and not practical as a working camouflage. If you're going to pay extra for cammo patterns, stick with ATACS or Multicam. I have different kits, some being based on Flat Dry Earth, others black and others still Foliage, and so far have managed to avoid all that stuff...

Re: Natural Weapons

A good 'rabbit thumper', a stick about an inch and a half in diameter with a burl knot at the end, would seem pretty darn ideal. Then you could lash spine and thorn vines to it if you want. Ray Mears often uses Dogwood for making pointy tools because it is very rigid and strong when wittled to a poi...

Re: Bug-In Location Ideas

Utilizing public land and national forest is NOT considered trespassing. I know the difference between bugging out and digging in, but many of the posts here are about GOING places and digging in. What's the difference between going to Mom's house and heading to a mountain hideout? IMO in the event ...

Re: Hypothetical scenario...

I live right on the edge of town and can pick up trailheads on to thousands of square miles of national forest and public land in about 30 seconds from my back door. Most of the people in the immediate area are yuppies anyway, so I'm not too worried about getting a head start. I think evacing in a l...

Re: Bug-In Location Ideas

The Seven Devils range lies about 3 hours north of me. It's a small segregated range of 10,000 foot sheer rock faces riddled with high mountain lakes and small pockets of "edens" full of sage grouse, lake trout, elk, mountain goats, marmot, etc. There's a lake up there completely surrounded by the p...
