Re: A quịk question about TEOTWAWKI

The world as we knew it ended a second ago. Change is a part of life. Some changes are more severe than others. I believe at some point we will as a human race, do exactly as many other successful species have done and either deplete all available resources to sustain us or pollute our environment ...

Re: Sweden Urges It’s Citizens to Prepare for Invasion

Sweden Is Preparing for the End of the World Here is a link to the pamphlet. It will download as a PDF. Cool, but I feel that it could contain more prepping information. It is in English. If Crisis or War Comes Thanks for the link to the English version of the leaflet. It was a very interesting rea...

Re: Firearms Chat 5: #pewpewlife

I had not heard of the new magazine restrictions in Vermont; thanks for the update.

Pmags have always functioned well for me. Magpul makes a great product and has an impressive corporate history.

I'm going to find some more to buy and stack them high.

Re: The Dead at Destitute Mountain

Great update! Your descriptions really create great scenes. The story line is so incredibly captivating. I've been reading other post-apocalyptic fiction since your last post and nothing comes close to the quality of your writing.

Thanks TB!

Months later and still no grid power in most of PR. This is a good article with several imbedded vids on how people are trying to cope. Top award to the use of the “zip line.”

Re: Inexpensive Backpacking Tent?

Every time we camp in Texas there is a burn ban, no campfires. And it's fairly cool in the winter. I think the tuna can fuel trick would be exempt though, since it is canned fuel. I had a eureka two person tent I got in 2000 and used until are family grew. I gave it to a friend who is still using it...

Re: The Dead at Destitute Mountain

I have been rereading old chapters while hoping for new words from you, TB. I had a fortune cookie last week that said I would soon be showered with good fortune. It has been raining here a lot. However, the good fortune I am wishing for is a new chapter!

Re: A Resonably Good Inflatable Canoe?

Our crew got an inflatable canoe, the Sevylor Colorado about 12 years ago. We take it car camping and for trips on local rivers and lakes. It's great not to have to tie an air resistor to your car roof for 5,000 miles. As our family grew we got a second one maybe 7 years ago, same model. 2014 same t...

I have, and pocket carried for years, a P-64. I picked up a Shield .40 last year and it is almost identical in carry weight and size, I don't notice a difference. Even though my Shield is of a much bigger caliber than the P-64's 9mm Makarov, it is much more fun to shoot and does not punish my hand l...
