so, what does one use as currency in TEOTWAWKI?

I am thinking that well-known silver rounds would be good. Something small in the order of perhaps half an ounce. So why do I think this? Well in the current financial climate a half ounces silver is worth approximately £5 so it is a reasonable amount to use any financial transaction. Also people ar...

Re: How critical do you think a dump pouch is?

Do you own a gun? yes? It's important so you can police your brass. Do you go camping? It's a good plus point to put your gathered food in. Other than these 2 points I see no overwhelming need for a dump pouch. HOWEVER! It is better to have something an NOT need it than it is to need it and NOT have...

The info on that says "shipped domestically". Can I get one shipped to the uk at all? If that's a yes I will take one from you so quickly you'll risk losing your arm!

basically saying that if you go into a fight thinking "I know krav maga I can kick his ass" you'll lose. In a PAW that is. In the real world I suggest running like a greyhound! But in the paw you need to strike first, strike fast and strike fiercest.

Re: What knife am I missing?

For PAW or TEOTWAWKI? I suggest a good and medium sized kerambit. I am trying to get my hands on a hibben claw ii because I think it's the best all rounder but it's a personal choice. Oh,,, learn how to use it too and you can learn how NOT to kill in the PAW. You put your index (pointing) finger in ...

What are your tried, tested AND working, natural remedies.

Recently I was ill. VERY ill. OTC meds failed me so I turned to nature. Well why not? Humans have been on this earth for a few years now and I don’t think we’d have made it this far without knowing how to sooth a boo-boo or two. My illness? Put simply, it was my gut.

Re: Help me fill a list. uses for a hiking pole trekking sta

Your list is for several poles/staffs to be used. Hollow yet hang a hammock? Over fifty some odd years ago a 10ft bamboo pole is what we used for fishing. You only put bells on a staff? Nope, just one staff. I have a design for the staff I described,,, I just need to get round to making it. All I n...

What other uses can you think of to justify carrying a simple stick/pole? I'll start: You can use it as a measuring stick when tracking, it can help you reach high branches when foraging, test ice thickness when going across frozen water, test ground integrity in marshy areas, test for quicksand, wh...
