Re: Propane Pre-Shortage Notice - CO

It is a good prep ro have some form of alternate heating. I suspect most of these rural users have a decent plan b. Very good clarification of the issue, raptor. Though unfortunately, excepting wool sweaters, propane heat is the only option for a lot of rural areas in Colorado. While most places ha...

Re: Articles of Interest at the "American Partisan" site

Yes, but the Lourdes site has little (nothing) to do with nuclear or military weaponry. That's more why I was asking what the significance was on this. I suppose if the 'active jamming' report is accurate, then maybe there's some significance for US defensive activities, but... Appreciate the respon...

WW, just finished this video. I've been watching a lot of the show-us-your-steak vids, and I'm so glad to see so many of them.

Re: Recommendation for lightweight breatheable rainjacket

I just got this generic bicycling rain jacket from Amazon. It seems relatively sturdy and a reasonable fit. I'm 6'2" and ~230 and i have some extra space. The arms are elasticized and the bottom and hood have cinches. Since it's not a full zip, bigger folks may have an issue getting arms into it and...

In the market for an axe--recommendations?

Looking for an axe. Or two. Purposes: Felling trees and processing firewood. I'm thinking I'm good with getting an orphaned head or just an older (hopefully quality) axe. Or I could go new. I would like, in no particular order, a full-sized, 36" axe with a 3.5-4# head and a forest-type, 20-26" handl...

Re: Three season tent recommendations?

So the tent I have is the Alps Mountaineering Taurus 4 tent (also, I believe, sold as the REI Orion, though I may have just kept the sleeve from an old tent with that name on it), which I have set up for the first time in probably eight years. This model has a full rain fly--or at least long enough ...

I dunno if these count as bug out gear, but I bought my first pair of Propper boots. Selected the waterproof Model 100 in Coyote. First fit seems accurate, so that's always good. I've found that my size varies sometimes as much as an entire size up depending on the brand and design, so I'm glad I hi...

Beowolf, with my lapsed membership my two numbers (325 and 326 IIRC) were probably reassigned. I'm currently intending to rectify the membership issue whenever the ZS Store reopens and would be looking to transfer the 326 number (if it was still assigned to me) to the Jeep we have now.
