Re: WWYD- Intruder at the door, You call 911...

If I'm to the point of calling 911, I've already asked him to leave and given warnings...at this point I'll grab one of my shotguns, give my wife another, and shoot him through the door until he stops bleeding.

Re: Wall of ice rises out of lake and destroys homes in Cana

All kidding aside, the Heater Buddy is an awesome piece of kit, that works spectacularly well at keeping my son's room warm when the power goes out and it's below zero outside.

Re: fire extinguishers

I'll chime in with my bit of advice, which is to get a bunch, and keep them everywhere. Multiple small extinguishers is better and safer than 1 large extinguisher.

Re: Is the Lifestraw sufficient for water filtration?

I'm a big fan of the Katadyn basecamp...not quite as small, but it's easy and fast and works for more than one person...

I've considered getting a lifestraw for backup, but it weighs more and is more liable to break than my current backup, which is a tiny dropper-bottle of clorox.

Re: Does anyone not have food in the BOB?

The bigger issue that the "PEOPLE ARE FAT" crowd keeps missing is that bringing enough food (fat/carb/protein) for a couple of days doesn't weigh much or take up much space. Eating enough to avoid the growling stomach and headache and slow reaction-time and fuzzy head and reduced endurance that not ...

Re: Apple Snail culturing, feasable food supplement?

I think the key to making this work would be finding the appropriate scale for your operation. Raising algae and snails in 10 or 20 gallon tanks won't cut it, but 500/1000 gallons might make the work/yield ratio look better. Some airstones and pumps to keep things aerated and moving in the water, an...

People whose plan involves not eating during an emergency situation to save weight in their BOB will be less effective at thinking and moving and reacting in potentially dangerous situations...

Re: Rabbit ideas

I used to keep rabbits, and would strip/chunk the meat and toss it with some salt/pepper/herbs/garlic, and then put it in a ziplock with some wine and/or balsamic vinegar for 6+ hours, before using all of that to make a stew of some sort.

A hatchet for limbing trees, a bow saw for cutting them up, and a splitting maul (when you're trying to start a fire, more surface area is more better, and split logs can expose drier interior wood).

Re: How do you prep food when you only eat fresh?

I would say that you should store some un-fresh shelf-stable food for emergencies and the short-term transition from supermarkets to providing your own food if something major happens. Supplement that with sprouts and seeds for crops and a fishing pole and snares/traps and a rifle/shotgun, and that ...
