Re: Survival Course Kit

The paint contaiminates the food if you cook in an ammo box and it makes a bad BAD smell. Unless you grind the paint off, but then they rust. A big otterbox or a pelican case seems to fit the bill. Glue two pieces of styrofoam to the sides if you are super worried about floating. Some of that stuff,...

A hungry child arives

The stuff hit the fan a month and a half ago. A girl arrives at your BoL. She is twelve years old. She explains that she was leaving a city near you with her parents when men started shooting and her daddy told her to run. That was five days ago. She has not eaten in five days, but has had some wate...

Re: What's NOT in your BOB? (NOW WITH 100% MORE POLL!)

Glint tape makes a nice marker too. I find that a roll of glint tape that takes up the same space as a pair of glowsticks is much more useful, in addition to not requiring batteries. They have trail markers for hunting that have the orange glinty stuff. Some people like the tacks (you stick em in t...

Re: Appt Bug Out

climbing down those little fire escape latters is not easy. I imagine its even less easy in the dark. Trying to climb out your window with a big ass pack on would also probably not be very easy. If you get a fire escape ladder I suggest using it at least a few times in practice. From a second story ...

Re: Considering no secondary: why shouldn't I?

I carry a pistol when I go hunting. With an animal you never know when you're going to be too close to maneuver a rifle, why do you think you can control the situation when you involve people? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnehv9_asCk I bet hunter number 1 is really freaking glad hunter number 2 h...

Re: Strangers on the Road - A bugout what if.

Actually, saying "you're looking at this wrong" and "I like your enthusiasm, but let's look at this from a different angle" are both valid and viable responses. Partof my hang up is that I'm used to starting at "most likely/most dangerous COA" and working down from there. If the question was "buggi...

Re: Strangers on the Road - A bugout what if.

Hey H2L! The scenario obviously wont apply to everyone. The descriptions were left intentionally vague because folks online probably don't want to read a five paragraph description of each person, and also because people don't explain everything about themselves to strangers on the road, or they cou...

Re: Fiocchi Cyalume Chemical Tracer 12 Gauge Shotgun

Not sure they are powerful enough to cycle a siaga 12 if they are shooting those glow sticks and not destroying them. Would make handy flares. If you had a group of twenty or so and split into groups, they could make handy distress flares. Also I imagine you could fire one at a target to mark it for...

Strangers on the Road - A bugout what if.

This what if is mostly geared towards people coming from a city or suburbia. Its been 4 months after 'the event'. Power has been out in your location for almost the entire time, and shortly there after food stopped coming into the cities as the ports closed and fuel ran out or there was no power to ...
