Re: Sheltering in your car...

Sleeping bag. Flashlight. Tea lights or UCO candle lantern. ( Adds heat and light but cqpack a window open.) Get the Mountain House Pro. They're the vacuum packed ones. Would a 12 cooler with solar panel work if in a place that's hot? It should keep contents cool while you're away from the vehicle. ...

Re: Hurricanes 2017

I'm in touch with some friends who now live in Florida. As luck would have it, they were living in New York when Sandy hit. I keep a rotation of the 5gal/20L water jugs. Since there are kids and elderly in the household, lifting the jugs onto a dispenser would be difficult for them so I got the pump...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

Testing some of my area lighting & emergency gear. Streamlining most of my gear to run of AA (single cell if possible since this also makes it easier to weed out a bad cell) due to accessibility of power source, ease of charging, and safe chemistry. Good balance of output and runtime as well. • GE E...

Re: RVs

I live in a tropical country and even though I do camp and hike, and also visit the US, Canada and The UK often even in winter months, I'm not that versed with RV living in very cold climates.

Do the new 4-season rated campers really hold up well?

Re: Multiple sterno cans?

Just curious, what is your draw toward using sterno instead of one of the superior fuel methods? I can't get refills for the camping gaz stove I use in my disaster kit. Not unless I want to pay for transatlantic shipping. I'm looking for a lightweight, low cost, backup that won't make a mess of my ...

Re: RVs

It reall depends on how many you'll be bugging out. 1-2 people, a pickup with a shell or a van conversion would be enough. I have 2 kids so I need a 4 seater/4 berth. My personal choice is a pickup with a camper that can be loaded into the truck bed with a cassette toilet. The pickup seats 4-5 and t...

Re: BOV replacement shopping - it begins

The Toyota Sienna has a 4WD model.
It can tow 3500 with the tow package but that's the upper limit.

Re: Another End-of-the-World movie: Geostorm

Interesting.
Dean Devlin is also responsible for the TV series The Librarians, which I really like.

Haven't had a nice upscale EOTW flick in a while.

Sounds a bit like Dean Cain's Post Impact.

When we just had 1 kid, a convertible backpack/duffel bag suffice as her BOB. Since having a baby recently again, I had to add more stuff. It wasn't that realistic to add another backpack especially since I'll be shouldering mttch of the weight. What I did was make a baby centric main BOB in a light...

I use a Klarus XT11 Upgrade in my EDC bag. Under $100. Uses a piston and spring for the battery contacts to handle recoil if you will weapon mount it. I got it because it can access strobe from off or any mode due to its dual tailcap switch. Can use 123s or 18650. There are other models with built-i...
