Re: Mass Blackouts in California

"One is None", or "All Eggs in One Basket" is the problem. Not having alternatives in place is a pretty serious issue, when electricity is running our water pumps, refrigerators, bank card transactions, traffic lights, healthcare equipment. Either that or start burying power lines where high winds ...

Re: KLR Storage - Mission Failure

Anyway if you want to learn from my mistake I recommend putting a liner in tanks of your bikes and ATVs with metal tanks. Draining them won't stop the rust. There seems to be two schools of thought regarding fuel tanks and long term storage. Completely draining is one of them. I've always topped of...

Re: Tactical bags that don't look like tactical bags?

You're talking about going "grey man" with an inconspicuous, low visual profile pack. I applaud you for thinking along those lines. A three-day pack would definitely put you towards the top end of your 20L to 40L range. And it'll be hard to get anything around 35L to 40L for under $50 that isn't jun...

Re: Best weapon for the zombie apocalypse?

Fighting zombies with a melee weapon offers a lot of difficulties. Number one being: you're fighting zombies with a melee weapon.

45? Might be easier to just advise how much water to add to a glass of iodine. Yikes!
