Re: Guy at the door says he's "looking for gas" with no gas

When he moved back I got the DL and called a buddy with the sheriff's dept. I said I had Joe Bum, Dl # 13211872 and he was looking for free gas. He ran the guy's info and said he was clear on warrants and there hadn't been any burglaries sounding like this technique in the area. Why would the sheri...

Re: Late Night Lurkers

I'm not a big fan of motion activated lights, since I'm probably not going to notice the lights popping on and off. I want my yard to be bright 24/7. Same here. We have the front and back of the house lit up all night. After telling my neighbor about the break ins around our area, I noticed his out...

Re: Home invasion.... Where did this guy go wrong?

The story sounds like complete bullshit to me. Either the writer has no common sense or it's a work of fiction directed at an uninformed audience. Bottom line, his shotgun did the job even though he was lucky the burglar ran away and the writer "got his cherry popped" so to speak. It should have op...

Re: Guy at the door says he's "looking for gas" with no gas

I live in a very good neighborhood. I came home about mid day the other week and a cop was across the street knocking on the retired neighbors door. No one answered & his truck was gone. The cop came over as I was getting out of my Jeep and told me there was a daytime break-in behind his house on an...

Re: Survival Caches

Anyone try a US Military surplus storage box with rubber o-ring seal? The size and price are right. At 28" x 28" x 19" for under $60 you could store a lot of gear, and on the diagonal it measures 38". This is a heavy duty container with 3 lock downs on each side and they say it's 100% waterproof, b...

Re: Guy at the door says he's "looking for gas" with no gas

This happened on our farm while I was home. It was ridiculous for someone wanting gas to have walked up to my house due to it's remoteness and off the normal roads folks travel. I peeked out the window and saw a stranger so I opened the door with a rifle in hand. Not a super sexy black rifle, but a...

Re: Survival Caches

Generally, the excess dirt is either spread around in the area, where it can blend in, or taken away with you. Taking along a tarp for the removed dirt when digging helps a lot, just pray you don't get pulled over on your way to your cache location... "Excuse me, sir, but- what are you doing with a...

You don't want your fingerprints on anything, including the cache container.

Re: Antibiotics and Meds

If you indeed have somebody on your team who does know how to determine if an antibiotic is needed/useful in a situation, and if so which one will likely be effective, then stockpiling such things may make sense. But, with all respect to our most excellent nurse & medic colleagues out there, you ar...

Re: Antibiotics and Meds

And now just think how much worse off you would be if the antibiotic you administered to yourself caused an adverse or allergic reaction of the kind that sent 140k people to the ER in 2008. I agree with you Heem, antibacterials as a prep item is probably not worth the risk. I have my medical bases ...
