  1. There is set of books out about the exact same thing except guns and all explosives quit working as well. It's by S.M. Stirling and the first one is "Dies the Fire". Really good read with some pretty good ideas in it, well worth the time and 8 bucks. Coty

  3. How it started for me.....

    I know how you feel TBW, I grew up in southeast Texas, everywhere you step it squishes, and GA ain't much better. I was stationed at Bening, and I don't miss that place at all. Now I live in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mtns in VA. Quite an improvement. Coty
  4. How it started for me.....

    My dad is an outdoorsman, and we spent just about every waking hour when he wasn't working in the woods or at the river. For me, it wasn't any one thing or time, it was just the way it was. Now I have a 13 year old daughter and an 8 year old son, and both of them are the same way, it's not really something they conciously practice, it's just something they do. I used to laugh at my instructors and Drill Sergeants when I was in the military, because I was just doing things that came naturally to me. I remember my mom telling me when I was akid that I should have been out in front of Louis and Clarke, because I was always staying in the woods for days at a time. When my friends were busy drinking and partying I was camping and hunting. I wouldn't trade my experiences for any amount of money. Coty
  5. supply cache

    I personally don't recommend cacheing items unless they're on your property. Way too much chance of being discovered by someone else. Concentrate on shelter in place and a couple of good BOBs. If you have the right stuff with you and more importantly the knowledge and skill set to use it properly, you won't need to cache anything away from home.
  6. Campfire Talk

    Tell your friend to think of it as therapy, and get out there and enjoy the woods
  7. that's the whole point of it KB. I'm too old to be diggin spuds. much easier to stack than dig. Coty
  8. I know, Doro, alot of folks have never heard of it. I saw my grandpa do it when I was a little fella and it's never failed me. I usualyy get old tires from the side of the road, helps keep the roads a little cleaner anyway. Coty
  9. I saw someone say something about growing potatoes in tires. I've been doing it for years. Even if you don't have much of a yard you can do it. Just get some seed potatoes and a few tires. Pour dirt in the tire and put your taters down an inch or so, when the shoots are taller than the tire stack another tire on top and pour more dirt in it, covering the shoots. kepp doing this until you are 4 or 5 tires high then kick the tires over and you should have 20 or 30 pounds of taters per tire. just make sure you water them regurarly as the ground will pull alot of water away from them.

  14. survival rifle

    I have a Henry US Survival Rifle, the little AR-7. I've probably put 10,000 rounda through it, and other than having to but new magazines, I've never had a problem with it. That being said, I'd look for a .22lr/ .410 over under. Best of both worlds and you can carry an almost infinite amount of ammo for it. Coty
  15. To my mode of thinking, Bear is a complete tool. Why does he insist on boiling water from a stream in the Rockies or Cascades but has no problem squeezing water from elephant poo? Still like to watch him almost kill himself weekly for my entertainment though. Coty
  16. What Ifs

    If you I'd sit still and light a tree on fire, then sit and wait for the forest service to come write me a ticket and haul me out of the woods to jail. One problem solved, another just begun. Coty
  17. Hi folks
