Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

In City Prepping's video, he suggested that people be prepared to spend up to 11 weeks in their homes. This would be quite the stretch, even for us. I know I don't have 11 weeks of meds on hand. There is USPS, but if it's not safe for people to go out, how would it be safe for the mail? I'm also cu...

Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

That is a good video. And commendably apolitical. One thing I'd add regarding City Prepper's suggestion that Election Day might be a bad time to get away from your urban home for a few days: have enough food, clothing and other supplies (including a cash reserve) to last you for at least double the...

Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

All the preppers on YT are coming out w/pre-election this-that-OMC videos. This one is from City Prepping and seems to be the most sensible one I've viewed, so far. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olDmZRDJt1A At the moment, my view is: ... it doesn't matter who loses the election, there's going to be...

Re: So, you want to buy some body armor but haven't a clue?

I've spent a good amount of time researching cheap armor and the various low-budget options; I'm willing to take a lot of risks in regard to armor that most people seem to find a bit scary but here is my take: -Old as dirt police surplus soft vests still stop bullets. I used to be able to get them ...

Yet another article in mainstream media signaling that prepping has truly come out of the shadows in 2020.

I just bought myself some of this I have had the ceramic plates for a while. Had them checked and they seem to be unbroken but even if they were cracked they are going to get real jacked up when hit. And they are multi hit rated. I picked up the late carrier being sold by someone in the military it...

They sold out before I could check the prices and PSA doesn't have the price visible after they sell out. MSRP was su...

Re: So, you want to buy some body armor but haven't a clue?

I think a serious question needs to be "what is your weight limit?" Do you want to strap on 20lbs of steel? And will stop most rifle bullets? Do you want to strap on 3lbs of Kevlar but it will only stop most pistol bullets and shotgun threats? Do you want to strap on maybe 6 lbs of rifle armor but ...

When a company, person, .gov has both access to AND the ability to read everyone's e-mail traffic, there is no way they could resist that temptation.

I BO'd here recently. What I found was: I don't have a "...i just need to get a hotel room for a few days..." bag. I ended up with core needs, & a lot of things I didn't need.

This is the first year I've tried to grow Blue Hubbard squash, and I've got a few that are very big but still light green so I'm worried they won't ripen after I cut them off the vine. My mother and I threw...
