Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

In the past week: - Bought some decent bags to store stuff in that were on sale...including a much upgraded wallet/purse thingy with lots of compartments so I can easily have on hand at all times my pocket knife, multitool, snacks, simple first aid, my phone, chargers, frequently used electronics, e...

Re: How Do You Rate These Items in Importance?

Re: 2018 prep goals

Have lots of things I want to do better in 2018, but here are some regarding preps. Haven't listed them, but maybe doing so will motivate me more. Or make me feel overwhelmed, as I want to accomplish a lot. Main issues I run into are money, time, and a husband that doesn't see the necessity. Got him...

Re: How long can you last on your own?

Luckily, I am self-employed as a counselor and would be able to drop my work expenses significantly if I chose to stop having a physical location and just do in-homes. Really, the only thing I worry about for me is if I would have a major health issue that would keep me from working or if I would ha...

Re: Bought a butterfly safety razor and shaved w/ it for a m

Bought my husband a Edwin Jagger safety razor and badger brush about 3 years ago. He has a very coarse, dense beard which he likes to keep short with his neck/underside of jaw shaved (it tends to just get bushier instead of longer if he lets it grow out). Since he has a giant, square superhero jaw a...

Re: I Have Underwear Older than You.

So, thought I would weigh in on the underwear thing as a lady-type person. As I thought about it, have undies as old as Stercutus' which are still in good condition and not worn much at all. And not "fancy" ones either that only get worn on special occasions, lol. They get worn pretty frequently. Ma...

Re: Long Term Storage Spices

Instead of storing it, consider planting it. It doesn't take much space, and oregano is really, really easy to grow. I've had an oregano plant in a pot for at least the last four years. Despite a serious lack of attention, it lives on, giving us way more than enough to use fresh and to dry for the ...

Re: My 2c about Combat Techniques

I can play zombies in someone else's universe. But I also think one should consider the most realistic zombies scenarios and plan for those. I think that rage zombies and similar are the most likely to ever happen. And yeah, zombies are a limited probability anyway :) Agreed. Much more likely a vir...

Re: Netflix Punisher Series; You've already met him!

My opinion: Meh, but Frank is not one of my favorites, as I've mentioned before. It was mildly enjoyable. Husband's opinion: Liked it, which is saying something because he actually HATES the character. I thought that Jon Bernthal did an excellent job acting and embodying the character. Frank Castle,...

Re: Jurassic Park survival

Hey, guys. Haven't posted in quite a while, but this kind of amused me. First off, I probably would never accept a vague job offer from people to take me to a remote jungle island containing predatory animals, even if I didn't think they were dinosaurs. However, if for some reason I suddenly lost my...

Appreciate the great thread with lots of useful info. We've been fighting fleas on and off for the past year, even though previously we have never had an issue with fleas on our indoor cats.

All this being said, this is just educated conjecture. The sad, hollow truth is that since it does not seem like he was working in conjunction with anyone and this was unlikely to be a political/religious attack, the reason he did it doesn't matter in an investigative sense because it won't change ...

Not sure where to start so I'll just dive right into the middle. It's usually deepest there and maybe I can avoid a head injury.
