The value of jump starts/power supplies cannot be overstated. I used a similar setup during Ivan, Dennis and it was ready for Katrina. Also I would suggest having flashlights of varying types so you have a better chance of finding batteries if your stockpile runs low. I've got AA, AAA, D, 6 volt and...

I have a friend who worked at a local power company. Last year she was attending training on pandemics. They were getting prepared. I think we all should too.

The sheriff said the decision to use SWAT team force was justified because the father was a "self-proclaimed constitutionalist" and had made threats and "comments" over the years. However, the sheriff declined to provide a single instance of the father's illegal behavior. "I can't tell you specific...

The result is absurd but it wasn't caused by the SWAT team. I've sent men into tactical situations and the rule I always followed was simple......I never questioned the level of force recommended by the man who had to go thru the door first. The SWAT team had an order and they carried it out in the ...

I'd stick to using it for food and water storage.......along with dry goods such as batteries, tools (non-gas), tarps, etc.

No way would I run a generator underground.

If I were drinking, no way in hades I'd light a candle and fall asleep in a car. You might consider some instant heat packs in a FAK, put them on your kidneys and wrap an ace bandage around your waist.

I'd paint it white - it will seal the concrete and help with the lighting and put up a couple battery powered lights.

Then I'd stock it.

While hunting as a boy occassionally we'd come across other hunters. Dad always told me to take a wide path and avoid contact if at all possible. Its not very friendly and always not practicle on a hiking trail but its still wise advise. People act strangly when they think they are alone.

Crack lighters are just cheap ass lighters, I got 50 for $5.00 once......you can see thru them to see your fluid level and the flame is adjustable.

I've got a Gerber too, and it freaking rocks. lapolicegear.com still has them on closeout.

Raptor I think he was worried about DUI. A running car with a drunk in it will get you a ticket or call attention to yourself. Sadly, even if the drunk does the right thing and pulls off to sleep and is passed out with keys in his pocket in our fine state he can still get a DUI ticket if the vehicle...
