Check out Ron Hood's vids. His wife Karen is continuing the legacy they built together. She is one rad woman, I think you'll dig it if you're into this type of stuff.

And if TSHTF, hope I cross paths with you and not a bunch of old grease balls. Haha

Re: Prepping Supplies
I LOVE THESE THREADS.

You always learn more and more. I checked out that Ron Hood and thats a great site with lots of great stuff and food for thought.

Also to surround yourself with like minded people if you can find them is very helpful. We all need to sleep somtime.

Its funny once you start to prep and train yourself and learn all this stuff its very rewarding. You get fit and eat better and have more energy and all fear is swept away because you have knowledge and skills and you feel alot safer cause you know your ready for anything.

I'm Hooked. Bring it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34725932


That's damn cool, I have to say. Finding a girl that preps and digs survival skills is...rare. To state the obvious. Haha. The website doesn't do the videos justice, I swear on my life. You can get them on torrent, isohunt.com has them under a Woodsmaster search. Otherwise, like I said, hopefully people can support Karen and all the work they put into producing them.

Love these threads too.

Also hooked. Bring it. Haha

The more you run around out in the Forest the more you enjoy it. I have always been an outdoor type and a Tomboy all my life. Learned many trades over the years having a farm/acreage. I'm in my 40's now and this is more like playing and being a kid again. Hideouts and bush trails and sneaking around. I walk around at night without light and go hiking now at night. I work at things at night. Ha Ha.

I can't help myself. I actually look forward to the Implosion. Have another couple joining me shortly. They are right into this also and have alot more knowledge than even me. Were all so excited. Alot of people would not understand that. Strange but knowledge without fear does set one free.

I hope you carry a gun when you hike around at night. I would. We were camped in the Smoothrock Lake area (northern Ontario) when something entered our campsite late at night. Scared the crap out of us.

I have a knife called an Old Timer on my belt. Where I am there's nobody around and Crown land and no campsites anywhere in the area.

I have the knife for the Cats that might pounce me. Thats the only worry I have. I also have some 4 legged freinds with me. Big Shepherds that I have taught to be stealth. No Barking just growling. That was hard to get them to learn.

When I'm not working or doing chores I spend all my free time doing this now. Its addictive and so rewarding.

Somebody walking into camp late at night would be unnerving for sure. Even someone walking on to the property would make me uneasy in the middle of the night. Gotta love big dogs.

Re: Prepping Supplies
The best thing you can invest in is survival skills. You can go into nature naked if you have these. The best thing I’ve ever come across for this is a man named Ron Hoods - Woodsmaster. Get Ron Hoods’ videos. You can torrent them (look for his name or Woodsmaster, which is the series), but you should support his family if you can afford it. He passed away not too long ago. Videos are available here…

[link to www.survival.com]

That being said, here is my top 5 in no particular order. These will make your life easier, but nothing replaces what I said above. One more plug for the videos, it’s all quite enjoyable to learn. The videos and articles on the site are very well done and you’ll have a new found confidence about going into nature. Here goes…

Fixed Blade knife. Make sure it’s fixed blade, otherwise you’ll be fashioning rock tools before you know it. I will add you can make your own knives if you watch Ron Hoods’ videos. Seeing a trend here?

Clothing. Read the above post I bumped, this was good advice. You need synthetic and wool base layers and a gore-tex outer shell for rain and wind. Also get heavy wool pants, I like the Swedish military surplus ones, and a heavy wool sweater if you live in a cold environment like us Canadians. Get out into nature during the toughest times, even if it’s in your backyard during storms and snow, to see if what you have will suffice. Also, wool socks and the best boots money can buy. They will be your last pair for a while.

Heirloom Seeds. The skill of plant identification will do you just as well, you can survive off wild foraging if you know what you’re doing and can die if you don’t. Having a garden will save a lot of energy though and if you know how to save the seeds, you're golden.

Fire steel. The skill of starting fire with nothing, taught in the videos I will add, will do you just as well, but this is a huge convenience and starting a fire when it’s wet or windy is pretty tough without one. I wouldn’t want to be using a bow drill in those conditions and if you don’t know what that is, watch the videos. Your fire steel purchase will come about 2 seconds after seeing the effort it takes to create a spark from friction.

Gun and ammunition. Mainly for self defense, but also hunting until all the animals are dead, which shouldn’t be long. A couple years maybe, just look up animal populations in certain areas after the world wars when food was scarce. Took deer populations 20 years to repopulate in some areas. Can't imagine what everyone hunting all at once would look like.

Re: Prepping Supplies
after my rambling speech about free energy and starvation
i realized the potential for concealed indoor hydrophonics as long as you got water, soil, seeds, and free energy

but I want to say that after 18 straight months of being preped and buying absolutely almost nothing retail except food and household consumeables, I scavenged alot of neat stuff from the trash but nothing essential and often redundant but there is one thing I found that surprised me a little.

It's the clothing. I went' through a couple sweaters, but mostly it's the pant's, socks, and underwear that self destruct.
I lost a bunch of my pants that wore out or got ripped in the crotch, lost buttons ect. I have been derelict in my mending also and a few could have been salvaged and repaired. But living in a northern climate here, I had alot of thermal and weather proof wear that bit the dust more rapidly than the hardware aspect of prep supplies.
Beware of things with zippers that can split and strip.

Also I needed more rugged pants. my track pants all went to rags.
My footwear is all still functional though suffering wear. And I found myself caught off guard because i didn't want to wear my $300 hiking boots in the slushy snow, but it was too warm and clear for snow boots, so I took to wearing my calf-high rubber saftey boots, but thats a $150 gamble if they get a little pin hole and start to leak.
What I wished for most was a pair of thermal insulated hightop walking shoes. Mid 2011 I bought some light hiking shoes for city walking, but they are ventilated and really cold on the toes, and take on water so useless for winter and early spring and late fall.

A bit of a warning on the Kaito Voyager Pro radio. I bought it because it has a built in solar panel. But after reading the instructions it says it's not really designed to charge the internal battery. More for playing the radio outside. The solar panel will provide essentially a trickle charge to the internal battery. You still have to use the crank to charge it. A real disapointment.

A big packpack full of bags of oatmeal and rice, a small aluminum pot, firesteel, knife and a real wool blanket will keep you alive forever and is way more than any real life refugee from conflicts like WW2 or Bosnia ever had. A big bag of food is always priority number one. Too many people focus on gadgets and gizmos and have lttle more than a couple snacks among the 65 pounds of junk in their backpack.

Go old Blue Jeans work the best I have found and knee pads so you don't take them out.

I have found that the bargain blue jeans made with the heavier denim thats takes longer to wear in last a long time. I slip a pair or light weight covers over then when its wet out or for really dirty jobs. I add a little bleach to my laundry all the time and jeans hang in there.

Swaets don't protect you from nothing. Too thin. I am always wearing a pair of light long johns under my jeans. Een in the summer. If you blow a hole your still covered. LOL.

I have stockpiled long johns big time. You can just wear them if need be while you clean and dry your other clothes if your on the move or run. Longjohns are better than Underwear. More functional. Mens underwear are shit and fall apart fast and the bands stretch out.

Re: Prepping Supplies
If you analyse this video this was the epitomy of a 1980's preppy....

So he has:

- A trench coat
- Sun glasses
- Dresses in black to be like a ninja
- Brings a hot blonde babe
- A bar, boze, and a bar tender

That's the 5 items you need to be a preppy to survive any occasion ok.

Re: Prepping Supplies
In the craft section of Walmart you'll find 3 different sized ziplock bags. These are very small and have a lot of uses for waterproofing or protecting things. I think I paid $6 for 300. For instance, every fall I make sure every coat and jacket has lighters and matches. I'll put them in a front jacket pocket. Bottom of the bag, up. Thus keeping the item dry. And yes I do carry a firesteel on my belt at all times....

To keep going, sleeping indoors, without camping:

flashlight and extra batteries
socks
wool hat
gloves
worn in boots
cargo pants with synthetics
raincoat/windbreaker outdoor type of jacket
bic lighter
sunglasses
first aid kit incl. painkillers, antibiotics, emergency blanket
magnesium
water bootle and chloride/silver purification pills
small cooking pot
kelly kettle type of cooking device
firesteel
fixed blade knife
small hatchet
multi tool
mirror
tweezers
self made MRE type of food ration
compass
tent, mat, sleeping bag

everything else is luxury bulk and can be made or obtained on the go. If you bug out, imo you need to set your prio on covering ground, moving foward over anything. That means as little bulk and weight as possible. Any pack above a quater of your own weight is bullshit, you won't get far with that.

Re: Prepping Supplies
Another thing. Makes sure your pack actually fits you and you have it adjusted properly.

Unless your used to hiking with a large framed pack dont get one with a ridgid frame. get a soft pack.

A improperly fit ridid frame will wear skin right off you. Once you pack it go walk around and hike with it. Do a test run with it. Very important that you practice by going out at least once and spending the night in the woods.

Parents take the kids camping at least once so they know what to expect and do to help. Collect wood and find water. Pack water. Have some fun out of making a shelter with limbs and bows etc. Sweep your site with branches. teach them skills please and yourself.

If you have never been into the woods and camped and expect to bug out there your over before you even start.

Put whistles around your kids necks incase you get separated. Teach them to pay attention to the trail and where they came from.

Re: Prepping Supplies
One of the MOST IMPORTANT things for your pack.

Dehydration salts/electrolites.


Must Must Must have them with you.

They come in small packages and you can put 100 of them in your pack without adding bulk. They contain Salt Sugar and potasium.

In a pinch and every household should always keep some is

Salt Substitute. Called somtimes No Salt. You just use 1 teaspoon of it and 1 table spoon sugar and a liter of water and you have your own homemade electrolites. Use for dehydration and Diareia/shits/scoures in animals.

I really hope shit doesn't start any time soon as I would like a chance to teach others some skills this Spring and Summer but I think time is really running thin and that March 20th and beyond shits going to get real.

The time to prepare is NOW. Right Now. Why wait. Why wait any longer. Keep putting it off and time will catch up to you. You can keep learning and fine tuning as time permits but if you don't even have a basic bag as suggested on this thread you and your family are over.

Equip yourselfs for Camping. Period.

My primary concern is heating/cooking fuel. My plan is to hunker down and stay invisible so masses of weapons and ammo are not needed (moral: you can't kill'em all). I think propane is the best option. Wood or coal would be ideal aside from the noise involved in splitting/stacking wood, and the smoke thrown off both. If it's a grid down situation it's going to be really quiet with a lot of people outside. Easy to track a open fire.

If you use propane indoors it emits large amounts of carbon monoxide and can kill you in a matter of minutes.

Make sure you have proper ventilation!

Never put all your eggs in one Basket.

Prepare to stay in place. Hide your supplies in different locations.

Prepare to leave. Have everything ready and keep it ready.
Don't just leave without a plan. Know where your going and have plan B. C. D also.

Make sure you have a map. Do not rely on Gps and having your vehicle forever.

Get a peddle bike. For yourself and everyone in your family and use them often.

Tire repair kit and a hand pump is a neccesity. You can put alot of gear on a bike. Cover way more ground than walking quicker. Ride silent and hide with it if you have too.
