Thanks! I still occasionally give talks on what used to be called "Home Disaster Preparedness" but now the Red Cross calls it "Together We prepare" (Lord, I hate the name game, just call it what it is..) I think that would be good for a laugh in the middle of a serious topic. -Brian Disaster French ...

OMG! That is a hoot! Do you mind if I use that when I give presentations? -Brian Actually, we're taking the basis of what happens RIGHT BEFORE TSHTF - you've seen the movies. Word gets out everyone's going to die, so there's a big rush to the store to get canned goods and milk. It happened when Katr...

Sounds like your SHTF plan is a lot better than most. Sounds like Uncle is an interesting fellow. Group up early (don't wait) if you get along well with your family, having the other people around can help keep you sane when things fall apart. Ever read Kipling's "If" ? -Brian My SHTF plan is a litt...

The Thing to remember, is that most schools are designated shelter sites, and will already have public safety types there set up and waiting. Or parents with the same ideas. If you try that in the south, or many rural areas, then you'll likely find that the locals are already there there, armed, unh...

RE: An Okie CAP boy

1) At 44 am I the oldest guy on the list
2) Is it common for the fellows here to list their arsenals in their sigs ?

Just an old Okie Boy

My name is Brian and I caught a reference to this group in the "Ringo's Tavern" forum on the Baen publishing web site (Baen's Bar). Came and looked at the web site and it looked like so much fun, I just had to join. I'm active in disaster preparedness activities here in Tulsa, with ARES and CERT and...

Armor

The hardest thing about armor is getting used to moving in it. And that is just a matter of training. Chain to prevent punctures with a leather backing to act as a blood/ venom stopper would be good. But have you thought about the "Shark Suits" that they make for the divers now? http://en.wikipedia....

Leather

If you want the word on leather armor, talk to some of the people in the SCA (The Society for Creative Anachronism) . They’ve been making and field testing the stuff for about 40 years now. You can cut leather into patterned pieces and then treat it with boiling bees wax and come up with some plate ...
