Re: Alone S6

True. But all it takes is one mistake and boom - DEAD. I don't know if you've seen any other seasons but in Season 3 one of the contestants get 3 bad spider that got super infected, and honestly they should have bowed out, but decided to see if their knowledge of medicinal herbs would save the day. ...

Re: Bow vs air rifle for shtf/prepping?

If you've watched Edwin Sarkissian's video there I'm not surprised a compound bow goes through several inches. I've seen what my 70lbs draw compound will do to a 200lbs deer. And the crossbow broadhead bolt going through and out the other side, no surprise there either. That particular crossbow, the...

Re: Bow vs air rifle for shtf/prepping?

For me personally, I like a bow vs. an air rifle. Honestly for a shtf/prepping situation I'd prefer my .22lr or some .22 shorts over the air rifle. Better stopping power than an air rifle, unless you're talking about one of the bigger air rifles that use a compressor to refill them, those are awesom...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

Here in Missouri we have more bullfrogs than you can shake a stick at. We usually kill them 1 of 2 ways. Snagging with a fishing pole or with a .22lr. I usually clean them by cutting they in half right above the rear hindquarters, cut the feet off at the ankle, and peel the skin off with some pliers...

Good on you for signing up for a CHL class. I've had mine for close to 15 years, and it's always nice to have. I bought some more .22 LR and .22 Shorts for my Ruger Wrangler and 10/22.

Re: Several must read SCi-fi based Apocalyptic novels

I've seen "Lucifer's Hammer" mentioned on here, and I love it. I'd also suggest "Footfall", or "Ringworld: A Novel", honestly anything by Larry Niven. In the theme of cheesy 80's books "Swan Song" by Robert McCammon is good. Bestial: Werewolf Apocalypse is surprisingly good for a book about a sudden...

Congrats. By the time you get to the 4-6 kids range you will wonder why you ever worried about if you could take care of one. As a father of 4 I can tell you this, make sure your stroller is sturdy, with better tires than those little plastic ones. I found that out the hard way. Get one with inflata...

I live north of Kansas City, and frequent the Liberty - North Kansas City area a lot. Currently you see a pretty even mixture of people wearing masks, and people not.

Re: melee weapons of choice

I've found a big long chunk of oak, about 3-4" around makes for a good improvised club. Often times when walking a train, at night especially, I will find (or bring with me) a piece of oak or whatnot to use as a walking stick/chase off dogs or coyotes. Never failed me yet...

Devolution: A Firsthand Account of the Rainier Sasquatch Massacre

I picked this up a few days ago from Amazon for $16.99 and finished it in a day and a half. It was pretty slow for the first few chapters, but quickly got interesting and stayed that way. It ends on a bit of a cliffhanger that makes you want to see how it continues... The whole premise of the book i...

Dying Light. I really like it. Lots of interesting ways to kill zombies, but I found that if you yell "PARKOUR" the whole time, you jump and climb better, your kids find it funny and your wife doesn't. :D :D :D

That was me with the thermos cooking. I use a plastic microwaveable one as it means that I can preheat with everything together and reheat after a while (with the top off) to speed it up a bit. Don't overfill or the food may expand and try to break your thermos. It is a good idea to match cooking r...
