Re: Stay in city or attempt the wilderness?

Both Selco and Ferfal talked about how they'd have been better off in a smaller rural town or village . Not rural all alone. The people living alone in isolated homes or cabins did very poorly and were easy prey. Vanishing into the hills to live is far more dangerous than staying in a city. Vanishin...

Re: Utah man survives for three weeks in Alaskan wilderness

Re: Utah man survives for three weeks in Alaskan wilderness

Do the presentations in public with the press and media invited (open bar will get them there the first few times we award it). Get ZS mentioned on the evening news a few times and we'd probably pick up quite a few new members. Maybe just some zombie-head shaped challenge coins? They could have som...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

I stayed off the 'net for the entire weekend. Went over BO supplies & locations. What I really need to pack is less debt & more cash. Seriously. I regularly listen to podcasts on working towards financial independence to help keep me motivated to be careful with money. It helps me psychologically p...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

I traveled for work last week so I used my BOB and got to repack it this weekend when I got back. My BOB is extremely similar to a weekend travel bag and I use it every time I travel anywhere. I just have to be careful to pull spare magazines out when I fly. I crawled under the edge of my house and ...

Re: Rising Tensions in the Persian Gulf

I think it's also worth remembering that someone can be very opposed to something in their own country, yet still show sincere patriotic support for their nation when an outsider does something aggressive. It's very possible people that are now protesting their own government were also turning out i...

Re: Record cold in India leads to many deaths

What has the moving magnetic field got to do with the ambient temperature? A lazy quick google search said magnetic fields can impact the conduction of heat. I'm guessing someone thinks the fluctuations in magnetic field could affect heat retention in the atmosphere. I have no idea if climatologist...

Re: Rising Tensions in the Persian Gulf

Suffering economies are not good at sustaining wars. I think fears of WW3 are either hyperbolic or rooted in incompetence. Yet the US demostrated admirably in WW2 that a strong economy is not needed to sustain war. You only need a united people. If a nation's people truly come together to make some...

In fact you may even want to buy CCW liability coverage for yourself. It is easy to obtain and will cost less than speaking to an attorney f...

Re: Headlamps?

You really can't lose paying $16 for any light made by Black Diamond. I like having a headlamp in the car, by my door, in my go bag, and in the garage. It's not the sort of thing you can easily have too many of. At $16 you'll still appreciate it even if you invest in a far higher quality one. Of the...

I think the biggest hurdle this board has is the front main page having been shut down for so long. Being smaller is not necessarily bad.

Re: 10 days and counting...

Congrats! In a few years, everything that went wrong will just be good stories you'll find a way to make funny as you tell them. Till then, remember to give yourself what space and time you need to recover from that stress. Housing issues like that take a deeper toll than it's easy to be conscious of.

Re: Will Prepping Get a Second Wind in 2020?

Prepping can be a way of coping with mental illness (anxiety, stress, dissociation, etc), and that is not a good reason to prep. But prepping can be another form of insurance, and that, I think, is wise. One's life should not be run by fear, but by joy. Money may not bring happiness, but the lack o...
