Re: Moab bought a '99 Jeep Wrangler TJ!

This isn't really prepping related. Unless I somehow run my emergency radio signals thru my Jeeps stereo. Anyway. I have a nice Kenwood single din - removable faceplate stereo. But old paper stock speakers. On the freeway I can't really hear lyrics. As the sound is just terrible. So for Christmas I ...

Re: Will Prepping Get a Second Wind in 2020?

Lastly, I can read a thread a lot faster than I can watch a long ass video. I'll watch if they are the only game in town. But I'd much rather read a well vetted thread on any given subject on a forum. As I can glean the information I want quickly. And don't have to sit thru a given length video to ...

Re: Free Olight review thread-I3E

I have an Olight I3S EOS on my keychain. I keep it as a backup to my main light (ZebraLight SC600 Mk IV), in case the battery died or I lost it. Sort of a two is one, one is none sort of thing. Not a fan of the light on my phone because it takes too long to get it out and use it. Gotta get the phon...

Re: Living in a van, down by the river...

Actually I just remembered. My favorite person that lives in his car is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEvmEOdSpIQ He lives in his Jeep Wrangler CJ7. Talk about a tight fit. But he's transitioning into an older Wagoneer now. He took the front passenger seat out of his Jeep. And used an aluminum cot ...

Re: Living in a van, down by the river...

While this is a well know bit from SNL (youtube.com/watch?v=Xv2VIEY9-A8) it is, in reality, a choice many make today as a way of life. In high cost areas, most notably the bay area, it is the only way many can afford to live. and work locally. My own niece lived in a van for months with her SO in t...

Re: What is the best/most durable pair of boots/shoes you have RIGHT NOW...

I believe the style or model was called the "Big Timber II". It's one of the construction or work boots the brand makes. Thanks, I'll have to look at them when I'm ready for a new pair of boots. Just be sure to get boots that actually FIT. And be sure to put them thru their paces before having to d...

Re: Will Prepping Get a Second Wind in 2020?

The difference for me between forums and youtube is the comments. On a forum you can see things get vetted. Opinions and recommendations. And you can tie those to members with high post counts. That lead to some legitimacy to the post. Not to mention asshats get bumped from forums. Not the case with...

Re: What is the best/most durable pair of boots/shoes you have RIGHT NOW...

I had a fair collection of Danners. Since their $20 referral program back in the day. I bought a bunch of boots for myself and family. But most were unpractical. And I sold them. Or they were boots that were already replicated in my small collection. I had a pair of $300 Danner USAF boots. But now I...
