Re: Firearms & Selling Your House

I guess I am the only guy who thought the Realtor reacted reasonably. She did not run screaming from the house, she did not attack the OP. She assessed the situation ruled it potentially dangerous and then responded in the best way to maximize her survival. Isn't that what ZS is all about? I would ...

If the car won't work, we shelter in place. All our guns and water are here.

Re: War on America.

Good idea Shiner. Why don't you put some cans of gas in the car, so if you do run out you can refuel right there? Because if we, god forbid, ever get into a car wreck, I don't want extra cans of gas that could add fuel to a potential fire. Might be a good idea to store a small amount of extra gas i...

Re: War on America.

This seems highly unlikely. Here's what I'd do, though: If it's 9:45 in the morning, TFB and I are typically either at work, at home, or somewhere else, but together. Lucky for us, we both work at different stores in the same plaza. That plaza is within short walking distance of our apartment. If we...

Re: Pants pants pants

For bugging out, I've got a pair of Dickies khakis. Under that, if it's cold, I'm wearing some thin fleece and a polyester base layer.

Alternatives to Glow Sticks

Glow sticks are great. First and foremost, they're just fun. I don't go camping without them. Glow sticks have another purpose too, though. They can be used to mark a camp or signal for help during a survival situation. When they're being used for something this important, people don't want to sound...

But I am curious as to where you found latex gloves that would fit a cat. :wink: My suggestion, ditch everything except the food and the harness, then add 1. More food. 2. A...

We made the 3 hour drive up to see our parents maybe 5 times this past summer, but with everyone's birthdays out of the w...

My ZS experience? TFB and I had just relocated to TX a month or so before hand and I didn't have any friends there. Bored out of my mind, I was tooling around the internet for a zombie survival plan.

BOB for a Cat

If I have to bug out on foot, my husband's cat may very well have to fend for himself. If there's a vehicle involved, however, he's probably getting shoved in his carrier and brought along for the ride. This is the kit I've packed to bring along with him. http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t50/Shine...

Re: College students turning to food banks

By law food banks may neither accept nor 'dispense' out of date food. I don't get where all these 'Out of date food' stories are coming from. If Keebler wanted to give a FB 10 tons of cookies 1 day out of date, by law they would have to be refused. Day of, would be fine. I have had donations turned...

OhioMe: I've not volunteered at the food bank I used to help out at in years and the management there has changed hands several times since then. I'm not looking to cause any trouble for them. They did accept canned goods that were past the expiration date, though. I think their restriction was 30 d...
