    Survival gear for kids

    In "A Soldier's Load..." they pretty much decide 1/3 of a person's weight is ideal for the whole "shoot, move and communicate" thing, I know the majority of us aren't AD military and it doesn't really apply, but if you're trying to get out of dodge in a hurry, you may not be able to carry too much more than if I weigh 180ish,,,,1/3 of that is,,,,,,,geesh

    water filters.

    I've been looking into them too Rick,,,,,there are a butt load of choices,,,,that Katadyn Pocket filter seems to have really good reviews, millions of gallons of water, and you can clean the ceramic doo-dad thingy to increase its lifespan........

    My GHB

    I still haven't been turned onto the Maxpedition stuff, especially the "european man bag" style stuff since you can just go with regular backpack right???? I mean they look cool but I don't understand the utility I suppose....

    End of times

    It was Armageddon week on H2 this past week....I caught some of it. I couldn't watch the one about the 7 most likely ways the world will end because it was mostly Al Gore talking about Greenland melting and causing the oceans to rise 10' in the next few years....bleecccccchhhhhh
