That doppelduffel bag would be perfect if it had a handle and wheels. Then the wife could drag it part time and save your back

The quick way. Burn it to the ground. Since we get a large group. Set up a Perimeter. Wait. Look for signs of survivors (smoke, noise, light, trash, fresh human waste, and or barricades). If possible, extricate and then quarantine survivors. If not cover door remotely with a scoped rifle. Tell them ...

I was talking about California. Things may differ in your state. I was trying not to speak in generalizations. There are people from most of the 50 states, canada, europe on the boards. So the Governor may or may not be the go to guy. Here in california, in a PAW type situation, it could be the loca...

In a paw situation, the inmates would be released. At least in my part of california.

I wouldn't live near one. They also breed antibiotic resistant staph there much like hospitals. Steer clear.

It's an old thread but maybe it will help someone else. Time basic training with the seasons. Take a go at it in the fall. I'm thinking maybe late september depending on location and MOS.

If Shtf at work, I'd have 70 miles to go to get home. I'm either going to go with a bike/trailer combo or buy a cheap beat up moped/dirtbike. Luckily my inlaws live near where I work for storing it.

North & South for now sounds good. I doubt we could get chapter status if we dont hold some type of meet or series of attended meetings first. So who wants to be the coordinator for the Northern Ca meet? Who wants to be the coordinator for a Southern Cali meet? The benefits to being the coordinator ...

2 or 3 areas. 1 Chapter. There are people in central california... You meet locally so you don't have to drive 8 hours or fly to the other area but once or twice a year. Most won't do it as a first event. Chapter events would be down the road. Local events could be set up faster and easier. A day at...

I'd want one chapter for the entire state, but I know meetings would be a bitch to handle
One chapter with three different squads South/Central/North. Would be good for local meets as well as semi annual group get togethers

I'd have to agree. Schools are a bad idea. The red cross usually sets up in the gym. If you can't bug in and bugging out isn't an option yet , try a public storage facility. That's where I'd go. Not the most comfortable place in the world but who knows there might be a forgotten couch or bed in one ...

I'd suggest two seperate events one southern and one northern. If both have a good turn out then maybe a group get together at the end of the year in a central location

If I were organizing an event, I'd go with a coastal event. Camping on or near the beach. Throw in some surf fishing. Perhaps some day hiking with the BoB.....

Bonfire perhaps if local law permits. I dont live near Santa Barbara, but it is fairly central. Maybe find a nearby range.... I dont know

Traverse 28 miles in two days. Then have activities on the third day? I doubt you'd have many who could keep up. You'd probably end up having a survival/emergency situation on your hands though. Might make for an experience to write about

You need to drink enough water to remain hydrated for the activity and conditions. If you are laying around and the weather is fair you could probably survive with little water.

Crap in a trash bag lined 5 gallon bucket. Either bury the bag or launch full capped bucket into neighbors yard using a catapult or trebuchet. stocking up on old detergent buckets from costo works well.

I have a septic system, so I should be okay for a while before having to dig an outhouse.
