Re: You Might Be A Survivalist If...

- You're hyper about hyperinflation
- You consider ADD and mania a survival asset
- You look at your neighbors and wonder if they're wargaming how to defeat your preps the same way you do them
- The prospect of camping in perfect weather on a perfect day(s) depresses you

Re: Shoot me first vests

And while we're at it... sweaters are pretty lame too, especially if they have those leather elbow patches. Now,if it's a 100% wool sweater and you're wearing it during SHTF, then I'm good with sweaters. Meanwhile... if your man boobs are big enough... or you just want an excuse to see gorgeous clea...

Re: EricinMaryland's BOB, formerly "Yet Another BOB by a Noo

So, some general updates... the chickens are still alive. Two of them turned out to be roosters, so very soon we'll be eating one of them and I'll probably put that experience up on here. I've moved them farther back into the trees and rigged a tarp to give them additional shade... summer here is hu...

Re: Pet meds for human use

Ah Fish Mox... basically amoxicillin. I've used it. Because it isn't Human Mox, I have noticed that my stomach gets a lot more messed up by it like borderline cramping. But it works just fine besides that. I wish more things were available in the vet arena...

Re: Coneal Carry Questions...

I was pulled over last weekend in my bright orange '78 Ford truck loaded with kayaks in the back. The officer was super cautious and I thought because of the CHP... but no, he had a trainer with him taking notes. They were concerned about my not having a passenger side mirror (on order) and we chatt...

Re: EricinMaryland's BOB, formerly "Yet Another BOB by a Noo

Yeah, I'm not advocating wearing a flea and tick collar... but so far I have misted myself with 1:8 flea/tick shampoo to water mist and have had great success not having any ticks at all or pleasure watching them die as they crawl up my leg. In point of fact, we went kayaking on a lake yesterday for...

Re: EricinMaryland's BOB, formerly "Yet Another BOB by a Noo

When we first moved to Virginia, we didn't realize that 2.5 hours further south there would be like 1,000,000x more ticks... black-legged, deer/lyme, lone star, and dog ticks galore. We are slowly coping. When I set up my motion-alert perimeter, I had some pliers with me to pull ticks off and mash t...

Re: EricinMaryland's BOB, formerly "Yet Another BOB by a Noo

Thanks for the moral support and disgusting illustrations... ticks are so nasty. Screamer alarms, perimeter alarms, nightvision cam, stealth game cam, and fake distraction cam all set and good to go. Will be baiting it up. I don't keep anything real by way of preps in my shed (though chainsaw...?), ...

Re: EricinMaryland's BOB, formerly "Yet Another BOB by a Noo

So... some updates. Turns out the best way to remove ticks is not any of the stories you have ever heard. The best way is to get tweezers or pliers or a multitool (I like my leatherman skeletool) and gently pull without twisting so that there is some pressure. The tick will eventually let go... wher...

This thread has me sooo confused. If you want a job, why not check out a temp service like Accutemps, Kelley, etc? Look for PT work in the newspaper classifieds. Or... if you alredy have a job, volunteer for odd hours and overtime... overtime a few hours a week will pay way better than a 2nd job. If...

You know... the most shameful part was, after all the trash talking of the across-the-way hippie chicks... they stayed and we left. If you can't find me it's because I'm hanging my head shamefully low. Though I felt better as the weather station got more and more Old Testament. On the plus side, I h...

Hey Moab, great INCH bag. Have you loaded all this up and walked with it? My 2 cents... if you go walking with it at all, you'll want to ditch some weight and from walking with my own INCH... - You'll want some space for pick up. Plus, it's an INCH bag... you'll want to take as much food with you as...

I've bought some clothing off Rothco, mainly camo pants and bandanas. Very comfortable, have held up great so far across numerous hikes.

Well, even if they say no, I'm still going to walk up to the range Saturday morning at 9 am, just without the rifle. There is a chance I'll make it Thursday night sometime leaving after work.
