Cots, anyone?

I've been seriously hunkering down lately, making lists and taking inventories of my existing BoB stuff. I have yet to post my own loadout because I don't have the actual BAG, which is kind of important. One of my biggest bug-out issues is sleepage and speed-of-travel in the PAW, as I live in an are...

This is worth getting if for no other reason than the food bars. Those are typically about 5 to 6 bucks each.

No man, thats great. I appreciate the explanation. Where I hunt (or actually, have hunted) shotgunning is typically 50 yards or less. But props if you are getting it done with a shotty at 125+.

You'd have fumes and refueling to consider then though, if its in a garage last thing you want it carbon monoxide coming up through the floor and filling the room where you've kept all your supplies. This is why my application to the college of engineering was declined. I suppose if there was adequ...

I also add props for pulling over. Whether you were worried about safety, money, jail, whatever - you did the smart thing. This is going to sound crazy, but I'll put it in anyway - whenever I hunt or camp I realize that the LEAST covered area of my body, other than my face, is often the middle of my...

As a quick update - I woke up this morning and the lightstick I bought and cracked for the purposes of the el-cheapo review was still glowing, if faintly. I'd revise my optimal time to around 8 or 9 hours, but they burn for 24.

If we're talking home defense - I'd use my firebat. I keep one close at hand for window breaking in case of fire. Its about half-again the length of my forearm with a leather cord, so it'd be nice and maneuverable indoors. If we are going anti-zombie, probably a chair. I want something that a zed ca...

This also depends on the section of venison you are eating. Tenderloin - typically a dry spicy rub and a long smoke with eliminate some gaminess. Something to remember, though - you can't really "remove" the gaminess, you can add enough flavor to cover it up and still taste good, but if you are goin...

Something else you could do - get a smallish generator to stick down there and wire it up to your garage. If this is intended to be a "stock room," then it would provide a safe, secure area to keep a small generator and reduce noise from said electrical appliance. -R. Flash Edit - I know zilch about...

Molon - I was actually thinking about this very question - rifle vs. shotgun - last night while tossing and turning in bed. I'm sick, I know. But the point is this - if there is game wherever you'll be bugging out that depends on one type of weapon rather than the other, then the choice is obvious. ...

Ok, this is just an addition to what Gunny has already posted. No wrapping tutorial here, as it can't really be done better - but this is for those of us who are a little lacking in some of the smaller, more practical BoB items. Lightsticks can sometimes be really easy to find, but hard to judge in ...

After reading this I realized I had no light sticks as part of any prep I currently have, so I made my weekly dollar-store bob trip yesterday, just to see what I could get. Well I found some 2 sticks for a dollar packaged lightsticks that I figured - hey, what the hell. They are called "Color Bright...

Hey guys, I have a couple of related questions re: a lever action rifle for any in the know. First - Anyone have a link to a site that'll tell me what the legal barrel length on a rifle in Florida is? And if that changes depending on stock-type? Second - I'm looking for a lever action caliber that i...
