2009 KLR 650

I was in the dealership the other day and noticed that they still had some 2009 KLR 650s on sale at a big discount ($5000) new +TTL. This is almost 20% off the list. I don't sell motorcycles BTW, just thought if someone were looking for one it would make a fine deal. The KLR 650 makes a great 2 whee...

Re: What should be a preppers first major goal? Homeownership.

If I owned property then the government would be able to find and get me. They can find and get you if you don't own property too. :lol: Land contracts do have a lot of merit. Care and caution is the way to go however. I would never do a land contract with a bank or company, only a trustworthy pers...

I guess I will join in. Did physical training with the team this morning. Came in last in the four mile run. By a long ways. I hate being last.

Re: Airplane Hangers?

Not bad.

I seem to recall the El Paso Airport had hangers for rent at less then half the going rate for same size storage areas. Moving companies started renting them for temporary storage and filled them up.

You might have issues accessing one in an emergency however.

If you insist on leaving have a hot air balloon stored in a shelter on the roof. If the government is truly defunct they won't care about an unauthorized roof top launching.

Re: What should be a preppers first major goal? Homeownership.

It is an excellent time to buy. It is a buyers market and prices are at near a six year low in most markets. The notable exception is property in non-depressed areas with land. I don't know about the renting to others piece. I owned several houses about five years ago and had to listen to every stor...

I don't see the point in leaving either. Eventually the Zombies will be destroyed off from attrition. Every day you stay inside out of sight and sound is another day you are not out dealing with the undead hordes. Wandering around will just get you eaten.

Yeah, but all the waiver exam consists of is an eye examination. I had my Lasik done two years before the Army, and they still let me play. Did they make you enter "the study"? They were trying to figure out the failure rate for airborne troops. I know the odds are very much against it but there is...

Re: Laser eye surgery

Near as I can tell what you are talking about (I think) is Lasek or Epi-Lasek not Lasik. These are all different kind of surgeries. All of them use a flap too. The flap varies in depth is all with the Lasek being less deep. I went to your link and they said nothing about not using a flap. In fact if...

Hmmm... lots of little foot notes come to mind when reading this thread: 1. All non RK eye surgery to improve vision is ablative. Ablation means to remove something by vaporizing it. 2. All Lasik surgery still uses a flap. 3. RK surgery is still performed, although it is not common for correcting vi...

Re: Drop Leg (thigh) Holster vs Chest Rig/Vest Mounted

Depends. With heavy body armor a chest rig has it all over most other set ups. Without armor I prefer the belt/ waist. The old school advantage of a thigh rig was that it kept the weapon from getting tangled up with your other gear over a belt rig. The disadvantage was the swinging, wearing a hole i...

Re: How to sleep on the go?

Let me reiterate.

Set up a place in advance. Places should be with a friendly and an understanding. People providing you security is way better than going lone wolf. You can also store resources there in advance.

Re: How to sleep on the go?

In other words, a place to grab 1-2 hours of sleep, continue moving. Find another spot, grab some more sleep, continue. This is a bad idea that will result in a lack of REM sleep. Enough of that and you may develop a mental illness or condition. Even over only a few days. Taking a lot of caffeine/ ...
