Re: Whistles

Everybody need Ron Burgundy and his flute in there BOB. Could serve 2 purposes. He could serenade you at nights and attract attention if help is needed. Would be ideal IMO..... I dont have a flute, but what I have is known as a beginners recorder. Its a 3 piece flute like instrument to help learn w...

Re: So you just lost your job.

Well, as of July 4th, I'm amongst the ranks of the unemployed. We are fortunate, in that we don't have a mortgage to sweat, nor rent to pay, for now. That can change at any time, so it's not like it isn't a concern, just not exactly on the front burners right now. thanks to ZS, we have a system of ...

Re: When Prepping buy name or off brand?

I see nothing wrong with going to generic on some items. I have noticed that when buying my canned foods ( meat, veggies, beans, ect..) that the generic and dollar store brands have a lower shelf life compared to the name brand products I've purchased. I have walked into the dollar store here in Sa...

Re: Useless BOB Items

Condoms. Anyone mention those yet? Condoms are often mentioned in BOBs but they are rarely meant for birth control though could be used for that purpose giving them a duel purpose. The big reason people often include condoms in a BOB is they can be used as water collection containers if needed yet ...

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

The lack of National coverage might be explained by the way of saying most folks, myself included, had written Detroit off many years ago. So badly decayed now, that Time, Inc put this up from two French photogs that traveled over to capture the destruction. That's just the most visible part of the...

Re: Worst places to be when TSHTF

I would not underestimate gangs ether, but i would not underestimate the masses of ppl that can also turn ugly when the SHTF. Like i said, The US has many guns and most of them are not in the hands of gang members. Just stay out of the gang members or any other factions way and let them run out thei...

Re: Worst places to be when TSHTF

In the event of a catastrophe, gangs will look to protect their own, and their own ethnicity. For instance, Mexican gangs will target black people. Hopefully I'm not opening a can of worms here. I agree that gangs will probably not mix well with other gangs, some might be surprising though and join...

Re: Project N.E.R.D.

Just a reminder, its not just what you wear. Its how you act, what you say, and how you react. Your basicly setting a goal for yourself and using what you have and know to get to your goal.
