Re: Pandemic Apocalypse: To The Lake (Netflix)

Binged this, it’s REALLY good. I might watch it again just because it was interesting and not overly “make believe” and the team didn’t go full TWD which is nice.

Re: Quazi's self-sufficiency projects

Just a note, you may already be aware though: you can basically sub mashed potatoes for one part in three flour when making bread. So like my sourdough recipe is generically 1:2:3 starter:water:flour. You should be able to make it 1:2:1:2 starter:water:mashed potato:flour, counting the water in the...

Re: Zombie Squad: Tiny House edition?

You hit some great points. The RV won't let us do a loft. Depending on how the loft is done it can yeild 50%-100% more square footage. That is attractive. And the tiny house can be better insulated. Actually...I ran across some with RVs with a loft. They aren't huge, but they're at least extra slee...

Re: So, you want to buy some body armor but haven't a clue?

I just bought myself some of this I have had the ceramic plates for a while. Had them checked and they seem to be unbroken but even if they were cracked they are going to get real jacked up when hit. And they are multi hit rated. I picked up the late carrier being sold by someone in the military it ...

Re: Zombie Squad: Tiny House edition?

Wife and I have been living in a 5th wheel for 10 months. We bought new because we didn’t want the hastle of dealing with someone else’s issues. Yes you can buy an RV for a few thousand, but what’s wrong with it and how long do you have to go through and test/replace things? We looked at building a ...

Congrats man! That’s awesome! We’ve been busy on our land! It’s a lot of fun and well worth it. Gotta life well and septic. You’re one step to being pretty much fully self reliant for your daily useages.

Re: Who has a skill to share?

Great idea! I’ve got a very broad selection of knowledge. One I’ve been doing a lot of recently is reloading, dehydrating, pickling, and canning. I will not say I am an expert on any of them but I haven’t poisoned anyone and I still have all my digits. I could also run a course on small engine repai...

For the most part a lot of the actives have left for other parts of the country. Jinxmedic moved to OR, a lot of 005 members went to TX. I was at black November’s property 2-3 weeks ago.

the majority of my ammo is stored in ammo cans, I have some factory but most my ammo are my reloads. I’ve been saving some of the first ones which are going on 5 years now (which isn’t that old I know but it’s my control). I do have some that I vacuum sealed with silica and O2 absorbers. Those are k...

Re: Bow vs air rifle for shtf/prepping?

I have 2 compound bows and I’m actually looking at a .25 or .30 cal air gun. I actually just saw a airgun called Air Venturi Avenger. It’s biggest cal is .25, which honestly is plenty for small game, any thing bigger use a bow. The biggest issue with air guns is the equipment to keep them pressurize...

You make me wonder what else is not being reported in the US. Thank you for keeping us informed.
