    Road flares work great to start a fire on a rainny day. They can also be used to distract people (People are just as dumb as bugs, light it throw it and watch them run to it all you have to do is find a dark spot to hide or shoot from. learned that one from Iraqis)


    Not sure but i also read that some guys way out in the sticks managed to do some light welding with them not sure if i belive it tho.

    As for heat strok you can buy heat tabs I live in Phoenix and work outside and take them every day with a lot of water. They work great and you dont get as tired as quick

    Has anyone thought of keeping a couple pair of handcuffs in the house? in case of home invasion where you don't just kill them?
    Better and more versatile than handcuffs are the LEO mob-control backup: nylon wire ties. Get releasable as well as one-time. Lots of uses.

    "Better and more versatile than handcuffs"

    Baling wire.


    It you keep animals, pet food could be a major issue........
    Ours earn their way, but need to be paid.

    Most of the things that we would choose to stock up on,
    are getting pretty pricey. Stock what you can get your hands on,
    for a decent price to trade with others that forgot that.

    Coffee oxidizes quickly.
    Unroasted green coffee beans have a long shelf life.

    Alcohol.

    Tobacco.

First aid and med kits for basic health to emergency surgury, and various meds. Then the add ons like Berkey solar chargers, Free Play chargers, Free Play radios and flashlights, and rechargeable batteries.

    Oh yeah, and I do preserve wealth with Silver and Gold bullion as well as have "junk silver" pre-1964 coin for trade.


    Interesting read (fiction) that demonstrates we are never really "ready" for any contingency. Still a good story:

    Definitely a good weekend read ain't it?

    At least you didn't stumble across it during the holidays like I did. Like you said, once you start reading, it's tough to put it down.
