    Shelter In Place Kit with pictures!

    up north in the frozen climes we have the additional effect of colder cold temps on the poly sheeting - the cheaper stuff manufactured for drop clothes and temp jobs basically "shatters" into small pieces >>>> for long term window/home openings check that temp rating for the poly you are using - they have good stuff rated down to -20 to -30 degreesF below 0 degreesF ....

    Shelter In Place Kit with pictures!

    good deal guy on that 6 mil - more importantly is that it's actual window covering sheeting that is UV resistant >>>> always a good chance that we'll have busted windows in alot of the various SHTFs - could go long term with no glass manufacture and/or delivery - what goes up up could be up there for awhile .... not a bad idea to have a roll or two of the better reinforced window replacement sheetings - comes with a lattice of impregnated webbing >>>>> http://www.warpbros.com/category.asp?section=windows

    New List of Long Term Storage Items

    the same business advice today - know your clientele - will still prevail in a SHTF barter/trade dealings >>>> as a well prepared prepper - what exactly would you be trading FOR & IN EXCHANGE with the sheeple? - they'll be looking for everything & virtually anything - trouble is again what's there for you? no trouble laying in extra low key items that'll always be useful - but what you'll need to get premium items & services a prepper might need to acquire will be "like in kind" premium goods >>> stockpiled items you might have for your own purposes - but enough for trading and still handle your needs? .... instead of a $100 worth of $1 items - 4 or 5 bottles of mid range $$ booze might be a wiser choice ....
  4. #29 >>> shut the hell up period - not only to the coppers but on the scene to bystanders - and even more importantly POST SHOOTING - no freaking newspaper interviews or dumbazz Twittering or Facebook postings .... if you followed the Zimmerman Case down in Florida - watch your call into 911 - no matter what the 911 operator tells you - cut the 911 recording call immediately >>>> don't be giving the hanging DA any ammo he doesn't need or deserve ....
  5. most of the preps for a nuke/rad SHTF have double duty usages >>>> many going toward a pandemic situation ... unless you're a confirmed 72 Hour FEMA prepper - might as well read up on prepping for a possible radiation/fallout protection event and bite the bullet ... if your literature cache is shy on the subject the prepper world has a guru that has compiled it ALL >>>> https://www.survivalring.org/

    BOB -oddball items

    binder clips - you know the spring loaded deally for holding a wad of paper together - clip a few to the edge of your pack - keep a couple clipped to the inside pocket of your coat >>>> besides closing a folded over bag securely - with a piece of plastic you have a quiky improvised shelter ....
  7. here's an article that's probably one of the better that I've seen in a year or two - 100% on target - and it just happens to preach my mantra .... your preps are just a stop gap - a hedge - until your self sufficiency plan can kick in and then help fill gaps on those lean months .... when a SHTF hits - no matter how minor or serious - don't take it at face value - it can and most likely will get worse by other SHTFs adjoining and compounding together ... an initial 1 month predicted longevity suddenly is more like 6 months or longer ... https://www.theorganicprepper.com/when- ... nt-enough/

    Fire Extinguishers - Do you have one in your home?

    best way for a permanent roof soaking sprinkler system would be run the piping in the attic - drainable thru a ground based stand pipe that would also be the water supply from a pressure booster pump ... only the sprinkler heads would be visible from the outside .... world best would be have water barrels catching the guttered water and have a looped re-cycling of the pumped water - just in case the municipal supplied water is unavailable .... roof soaking system not only good for natural disasters such as a forest fire - but also intentional arson from domestic disturbances/riots ....
  9. love reading after action reports of real life experiences from prepared preppers - their bug out organization plans - what worked - what didn't - changes needed to made - additional prep supplies required .... the following AAR pertains to the tsunami warning for Kodiak Island Alaska that occurred on January 23rd following the 8.0 earth shaker that was almost dead center to that island .... http://www.timebomb2000.com/vb/printthread.php?t=530832&pp=40&page=1

    This guy says stay away from Master Lock

    https://unitedlocksmith.net/blog/10-best-padlocks-of-all-time some are totally BS considering the $$$$$ - but the cheaper ones are doable for uber valuable lockups - also gives you an idea of what lock features to be zeroing in on ....

    Is it overkill, I'd like to think not!

    super cheap that makes your battery stockpile more versatile are battery adapters - https://www.amazon.com/WAYLLSHINE-Battery-Converter-Batteries-included/dp/B01508425K/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1515373653&sr=8-2&keywords=battery+adapters

    What do you store for barter?

    Whenever I encounter these "barter" postings I have to ask "What do you intend to barter for????" .... if you're a properly prepared prepper - which you should be before delving off into barter prepping - what do you expect of SHTF value in exchange for low grade barter items???? .... if these sheeple need to barter for very basic basics they most likely only have pre-SHTF useless "old world" property .... Do you intend to go "pawn shop"? ... barter for high price luxury goods? .... jewelry, antiques, precious metals, vehicles, ect ect - take a gambler's plunge that it return to value ... you think your barter goods are up to that barter level??? .... a top shelf scotch drinker won't be bartering that Rolex for backyard hootch .... are you prepped to evaluate high priced goods? Nothing wrong with having something to barter - even the best prepared prepper will eventually will need services or goods outside their normal coverage - but again it's barter value will need to be high enough to cover the situation .... think more along the lines of adding to your critical prepper goods - something to spare for bartering - rather than a whole special inventory of lower grade barter items ....
  15. In regard to the canned mackerel - can't handle the taste either - but it's super cheap fish source for the large can .... it makes excellent bait for trapping the 4 footed varmites ..... not into roadkill but a SHTF trapped raccoon would be a feast ....
