Re: Escaping the 12th Man-Bug Out Entry

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYugJAxgB64 I suppose I should start at the beginning. As I stated earlier, the weather had not been cooperating for Eastern Washington. I wanted to get in a decent winter trip while it was, you know, winter. Superbowl weekend found us kidless, and the opportunity was...

Re: Escaping the 12th Man-Bug Out Entry

The cold sucked down my battery quicker than normal, and the internet wasn't moving quick enough to down load pics.
We had to leave earlier than planned due to her knee acting up, we're home safe and she is icing it now. More in a bit.

Re: Escaping the 12th Man-Bug Out Entry

I have a confession to make. Perhaps it's not really a confession, more like a weakness. I sleep cold. I hate it. I can be in a 32*bag in 40* weather and be cold. At home my better half calls me her bed warmer. She says I'm always putting out heat. I've developed a routing to help keep me warm at ni...

Re: Escaping the 12th Man-Bug Out Entry

Did you have really good hiking poles? They can make it a little more bearable when pulling a sled. Yes, I have a pair that I recieved as a gift from TheAlias, they work very well, and have held up. Even if they don't matchup snowshoes :) http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu214/sigboy40/ZS%20Activ...

Re: Escaping the 12th Man-Bug Out Entry

First note, I need to do more calf raises. Snowshoeing with a very full pack while dragging a sled sucks. Secondly setting up a winter camp is taking longer than normal. So is getting a fire going in the snow. I'm trying to get pics uploaded now. Internet is being a bit slow. We hiked in a few miles...

Escaping the 12th Man-Bug Out Entry

I've been seeing subtle changes in my enviroment. It started as an undercurrent of emotion in local society. People started talking about a large bowl, I can only assume they meant marijuanna. Gang colors of Blue and Lime Green started appearing everywhere. There was even talk of murdering defensel...

Re: Ultimate ZS Battle/Scout Belt Thread

The ultimate belt slim down continues. I had hoped to get the belt under 12 pounds with no food or water. This may have been too lofty of a goal. This week I was looking at where else to slim down weight. Part of this was establishing what is a priority and what isn't. http://i649.photobucket.com/al...

Re: 3 Day BOB with weight restriction.

I think to make your weight restriction you will have to drop firearms. A rifle and ammo will average out to 10, a pistol almost 5. Hell, my belt weighs over 12 with a pistol, 40 rds of rifle ammo and one extra pistol mag.

Sounds like a boutique version of Quikshok ammo, and just like it, I highly doubt that it has the penetration claimed, and is barrier blind.

Re: Paradox Packs

Just a few quick questions.
How does the waist belt attach to the frame? Is it removable? What kind of stabilizers do you use on the belt to hold the frame closer to the body?

Re: Critique my BOB/GHB

Many people will jump on the multi knife platform. I know guys that only carry a multitool and do everything from erecting camp to field dressing elk. To me, that's the equivalent to doing an engine overhaul with a crescent wrench. Outdoorsman of old carried a large knife or hatchet, a medium sized ...

The best I have found (and not yet tried), is the 'farmstead meatsmith' YouTube channel.

eBay has a few of them for about $30/meal or $155 per case of nine.
Nothing inside them is terribly exotic, you can duplicate them for a reasonable cost ($10-$15)

I use this for every pack, even the modular ones. Every piece of kit you own will fit into at least one of these categories. The trick is finding items that perform roles in multiple categories.
