Re: You're at work. Things go bad. What would you do?

I work graveyard shift in the NOC of a major local hospital system. From Midnight to 06:00 when the dayshift comes in, I'm the entirety of the IT department. I pretty much have to obey the 5th General Order unless shit's hit the fan in a way that threatens my office. Even then, I'm probably just rel...

Re: Coconut Milk Powder - In coffee

Haven't seen condensed milk in tubes, but I have found it in squeeze bottles in the ethnic food aisle at some WalMarts.

Howdy, again

Been away for a while, so I thought I'd reintroduce myself. Professional IT geek for a major hospital system in Louisiana, long time interest in prepping and poking holes in paper from a distance. As of this past October, I'm a home owner and am trying to get my yard dry enough (South Louisiana. Go ...

Re: Choosing a Camouflage pattern

Best multi-environment cammo I've found is the Rhodesian bush pattern. I nearly lost my jacket twice, just by setting the thing down. Once in northern New Mexico, and once in south Mississippi. If you can find two more different environments than that... :rofl: (Sadly, I lost mine to Katrina. I need...

Murphy doors

I'm about to be buying a house and, being the sort of person who hangs out around here, I'm looking at setting up some concealed storage space. Has anyone used these folks ? I've seen ads for them popping up on Facebook. They make pre-made, ready to hang secret doors. I'm thinking the closet of the ...

Re: Why do you prep?

I've always been into this sort of thing, if you define "always" as "since around Jr. High". What got me into actually following through on my interest in a serious way was Katrina.

Re: Trader Joe Coffee Options for Bobs, GHBs, etc.

The Korean grocery near my apartment has various brands of pre-sweetened & creamed coffee sticks as well. I suspect that they're going to be cheaper than the TJs version.

Re: Arguing With Survival Experts

Haven't seen the video yet, but any huge markings saying you're a prepper would be a serious violation of the Gray Man principle. All I've got on my truck that would clue someone in is a ZS sticker that everyone thinks means I'm a Nine Inch Nails fan, and my ZS Fleet Vehicle number. I don't even put...

Re: Cold Steel Smatchet Machete

The one I just bought from Smokey Mountain Knife Works came with the false edge sharpened, and thus not so false. Haven't had the chance to put it to the test with yardwork just yet.

Re: Breaking News: Russia attacks the Baltics! Tallin is Bur

I live in NOLA which is a port city and a huge percentage of refined fuels go through the ports along the GOM from Houston to Pascagoula,MS. An attack on this area would deprive the US of most of it refined petrochemical products. I've seen the Cold War era targeting maps. In the event of toe-to-to...

At ground level near one end of the berm was a piece of culvert pipe ( This sort of stuff ) sticking vertically out of the ground, about 4' tall. I think it was covering a water qua...
