Re: Bug Out Bag for Dog

Outstanding! I. Must. Do. This. Too. License and vaccination records, maybe a photocopy of the dog tags in case the collar is lost? Canned dog food, longer shelf life, less rotating? I've used hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting on one of my mutts, ate a mushroom in the woods as a puppy. Used a sy...

Re: Bug Out Bag for Baby

Thing's I've added in the past few days Baby spoon and two pouches of baby mash - breast milk will continue to be the primary source of nutrition, but stressful situations will impact that supply, and another source of food is important. Garlic press - a suggestion from an older ZS thread on baby sp...

Bug Out Bag for Dog

Taking a few minutes to share the bag I've put together for the family dog. Much like my last thread - Bug Out Bag for Baby - the objective of this bag is a 72 hour bag of essentials for an incident which has forced us from our home, but society and the world around us is still functioning in a norm...

Re: Bug Out Bag for Baby

On what you've already done: I would suggest removing the travel sized wipes and replacing them with 1 or 2 full sized packs or using something like the compressed ones if all you've added is the one pack shown in the photos. As you know, one pack won't last long especially when you're using it to ...

Bug Out Bag for Baby

Here's the start of the Bug Out Bag I've built for my daughter. I posted a couple months ago about a day trip my wife and I took with our 6 week old and dog. Of the great number of things we learned that day, we realized that everyone's bag cannot be a "backpack". I bought myself a new pack late las...

Re: There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

Snap traps with peanut butter. Dispose of them if I can get to them before the crickets do. Rats can/will chew through siding to get in and don't care about steel wool blocking the hole. NYC rats have been known to chew through steel-reinforced concrete and armored cables. (Fun Fact: up until fairl...

Re: There's no time like the end of times for a good Bourbon

Next question for the hive mind: on the rocks or neat? I prefer my whiskey cold but I've been told that the proper way to drink a quality bourbon is neat. I compromise and use granite whiskey stones. I always have a couple sitting in a glass tumbler that lives in my freezer. As I said above, I don'...

A grease pencil, AKA China Marker. It's what we used in the Navy for writing during firefighting or flooding drills or actual casualties. They write underwater just fine. As for needing ink in the rain, do you have water resistant paper for the ink to flow onto? It just sounds like a solution to a ...

That would be the first assumption. I've heard of the suggestion from police a few times in my life.

Re: When the police recommend you shelter in your basement, but you only have a crawlspace

Ah, hadn't even thought about waste, a couple more 5 gallon buckets for sure. We use sawdust up at the hunt camp, so my wife's used to the process. Excellent call. Maybe 3 or 4 shower curtains to make a "room" or two which will be warmer than the full footprint.

When the police recommend you shelter in your basement, but you only have a crawlspace

As I recently posted in WWYD, the family and I recently moved to a small older house. Since finishing college, I've rented in low-rise or high-rise concrete buildings. This past week I was scrolling through social media and found a local article where police had advised a neighbourhood to shelter in...

Re: There's no time like the end of times for a good Bourbon

Back in March or April 2020 I set out make a killer manhattan. I've never been well versed in the world of bourbons, so I started with a google search and settled on woodford reserve. I experimented with the ingredients I had on hand, which weren't all traditional, but I ended up with a killer manha...

Re: There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

My wife is anti glue trap, pro snap trap, I considered carrying an airsoft pistol around the house, since they're only field mice, but they've yet to present themselves in waking hours, so I haven't tried that yet.

Re: There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

Poison bait in hidden places works wonders. Tom cat is the brand I use. OP mentioned dogs, so poison bait probably isn't a great idea. No matter how well you hide it, dogs and cats are still at risk of of catching a rodent trying to flee from its own burning, melting guts. When said poisoned rodent...

Re: There's a mouse in the house (bug out bag food storage)

Mice can scale pretty much anything if it means getting free food. We had that problem years ago before I started at the railroad. We moved into a shitty little apartment in Kansas City that was apparently a magnet for mice. We found that any holes patched with metal mesh was great for stopping mic...

Been a busy few months. Mrs, baby and me moved out of the apartment in the big bad city to a small rental house in a slightly better city nearby. Shortly after we started to move stuff in, we discovered the house had a mouse issue when we lost a small amount of shelf stable groceries. We threw a bit...

Re: Does everyone's kit match in your household?

Just ordered a second Tasmanian Tiger SW Tac25 pack for my wife. This will be (part of) her Christmas present. Life is crazy busy right now by all standards, let alone in the middle of a pandemic. I'll be happy to have our family bug out bags squared away better than they have been.

As a new dad, time. Everything takes much longer with a baby. Even content infants need to be checked on regularly in car seats and any sleep space that isn't a crib or bassinet.

Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

And also, if you've paid into a survival compound, you should expect notice that they'll be opening their doors by November 3rd. If you're a member of one of those places, you probably have more money than all of us schmucks on ZS combined. https://www.theblaze.com/news/survival-camps-to-activate-op...
