Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Thread

While this is certainly not TEOTWAWKI it has caused us to change some plans. We were going to spend Christmas in Austria this year and that is now off the table. With stuff being shut down the way it is there won't be anything to do other than sit in a room some where and watch TV. We can do that a...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

When I was in college, I found out it was because they have computer crunching away figuring out relationships. They may not know why the 49ers winning in Washington causes Twizzler sales in central Texas to increase (or whatever set of conditions), but they know it reliably happens. So it wouldn't...

Re: The world's most ridiculous bug out gear!

Based upon what we have been seeing lately any BOG used inappropriately is ridiculous. Let's face it, if you are putting on your Tyvek suit to go to COSTCO today you have failed.

Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Thread

No reported cases here in Maine (yet) but subtle signs everywhere that these are not normal times. Went for my weekly grocery shopping trip this morning as I always do. Observations: Less than half the number of cars normally in the parking lot at this time of day/day of the week. I'm guessing peopl...

Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Thread

Reminds me of two somewhat related observations. One: in addition to the CoVid-19 virus, I recently got recertified for ARC First Aid/CPR/AED. This time around it included a module on blood borne and respiratory pathogens. Those two events in combination have led me wash my hands much more vigorousl...

Today I concocted my own hand sanitiser gel as panic buying has stripped them off shop shelves, I used aloe Vera gel, surgical spirits (rubbing alcohol) and glycerin, I added tea tree, peppermint & patchouli essential oils in a fairly robust concentration. I’ve no idea if it will be as effective as...

I've read from numerous credible sources that a strong household bleach solution (1/4 cup per gallon of water) is generally effective at killing viruses on hard, non-porous surfaces. But I haven't found anything on its efficacy against viruses on porous, soft surfaces. Still, a bleach solution in a ...

Re: Will Prepping Get a Second Wind in 2020?

Interesting opinion piece I came across today. Please ignore the (mercifully, just one) passing political reference and focus on the thrust of this piece, which is that we need to bring prepping out of the shadows and embrace it as not an act of pessimism, but an act of hope. I personally think its ...
