Overlord

J.J. Abrams. World War II. Nefarious Nazi experiments. I won't use the "z" word; you can judge that for yourself. But this looks f*cking awesome.

Re: Bug Out Gear Deals (Post 'em when you find 'em) I

Another Prime Day deal: Coleman Classic 2 burner propane stove $26.40 after 20% discount off $32.99 (applied at checkout).

Re: The best Machete setup I've ever seen!

(*I originally posted this in the other weapons forum. But it's really applicable to bugging out and how to set yourself up to survive with your own bug out or inch blade.

That does seem like a bargain. He seems to be developing quite a following on Etsy. Folks who might be interested in this should jump on this soon; his prices might not stay this low for long.

Re: A quick question about MRE

OP, your experience is not out of the ordinary. I've done something very similar myself; it's part of becoming more sophisticated about prepping. As Raptor observes, canned and bulk packaged food are much better, more economical choices for long term prepping. However, there can be a place for MREs ...

Re: "USN Seal" Survival Kit

One thing that's always struck me about these various survival kits (USN certified or otherwise) is how many do not come packed in a food grade metal container that can be used to cook food or at least boil water. For kits that come in some sort of soft plastic or fabric pouch, it's going to take up...

What this means? It's not too hard to be ahead of the bell curve compared to the majority of the population.

Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife, Serrated Edge $26.99 . Not bad for maybe a vehicle bag. Where you don't want to hurt cause it gets ripped off.
