Re: Trip to Israel in August

I went there about 15 years ago for 6 months, for a work related project, and had a great time. I spent a considerable amount of time in Tele aviv but traveled pretty much through out the country. I found everyone to be very friendly, when there wasn't any screaming(for some reason everyone argues a...

Re: To pack a gas mask or not

After giving this some thought, I think I will incl. one, but it will be with my GHB... A lot of the posts (pros & cons) have valid points, but my main concern is some type of NBC exposure through aggression/terrorist attack of some type, due to my proximity of NYC, i believe this gives me justifiab...

Re: Zombie Patrol

I'd like to volunteer for active duty. Although I live in a fairly densely populated area, I believe there are plenty of opportunities to patrol areas that could easily be overrun by the undead.

Re: EDC Bags Vs. GHB

I agree with the last post. Since I travel all over my bldg. daily I need to keep certain items on me in my pockets (folding knife, small flashlight, pen, hankie, watch, wallet, iPhone) I also have a bag that I bring to work, that compliments the items I'm already carrying(power bars, paracord brace...

To pack a gas mask or not

I'm putting the finishing touches on my revised BOB (bag dump pics coming soon), and I'm already struggling with weight/possibly useless items issues, I'm aware that everyones bag is personalized for what disaster they believe is eminent, and with that I'm trying to keep an open mind and have a gene...

Re: My Urban GHB/BOB

Good looking kit... I'm also working on my Urban/suburban BOB & GHB. I consider myself fairly adept in wilderness survival, but the urban environment intimidates me a bit, especially if forced to BO, avoiding the ensuing chaos, and being able to go unnoticed if possible. I've given my bags a lot of ...

Re: How often do people loose their backpacks, gear and tool

About 10 years ago, hiking a long stretch of the PCT in the High Sierras with a friend, we came across a narrow (6 or 7 ft.) fast moving stream. Since the water was so swift and a bit turbulent as far as we could see up and down the stream on both sides, we couldn't really tell how deep it would be ...
