  1. For Sale or Partial Trade: NEPALESE KUKRI Kukris made in Nepal, unlike most American ones, have thicker blades, adding force. The forward design and thick blade of the kukri makes it good for chopping and combat. It can also be used for skinning and other tasks. A 15" blade is nice for both chopping and combat without being too big or small. Wood handle, blade made from truck leaf spring steel, sheath out of buffalo hide. Blade cleaned with Dremel (a belt sander or hand sanding would give a more even polish though I don't have one). These take almost exactly one month to get from Nepal and shipping is a ton for overseas. Price: $125.00 plus shipping and handling (and shipping insurance). I'm taking a big loss when you figure in the cost I paid for shipping from overseas. I would be willing to negotiate a partial trade. I.E.: $100.00 and website design, or make offers. There isn't much low end gear I need but it doesn't hurt to offer. Condition: Used only 3 times to test it's chopping capabilities, so very close to new. Transaction conditions: Must be secure payment via Pay Pal, or I must receive payment first/use a secure online store like Ebay. Seeing as I've never shipped items, a little help on how to send stuff via Fed Ex, UPS, whatever would be nice too. Okay, enough with the mumbo jumbo, bag to working out on Bug Out Bag tweaking!

    The Colony

    I really liked the first season. I didn't see all of it and didn't get to see the second season. I think I'll have to track them down again.

    Iran & OIl

    With the ties Iran has to Russia and China, and the ties China has with Pakistan, etc., yes it's the ripple effect I am worried about. It's an easy way to piss off a lot of nuclear powers. Hence my fear of a WWIII possibility.

    2012 better than 2011?

    I personally think the economic collapse will get worse and we will probably go to war with Iran and potentially kick off WWIII. I almost guarantee more of our freedom will be taken from us and we'll see an increase in TSA, etc.. *shrugs* I prepare what I can and I'm of the same mindset, " The future belongs to those who prepare for it today." -Malcolm X. I'll help my loved ones and try to help others, but when it comes down to it, family comes first.

    Bov???

    I've got two ideas for my BOV. The first is to haul the family. It has to be a full-sized van like a Ford E-series, or perhaps a cube truck (but most likely a van, as a cube truck might be a target for looting). I would also have bikes on the roof or inside in case there was a traffic jam. Secondary BOV's are Jeep Wranglers.

    2011 Bug Out Bag (BOB) Competition

    Nice! This was a great competition! Congrats to all the winners and thanks to everyone else for posting their bags. I've already started shaving weight on mine so that it's more suitable to different persons.

    2012 better than 2011?

    This is why when people tell me I'm a pessimist I tell them I'm and 'optimist realist'. I hope for the best, but see what's going on. The world's economic markets are crumbling and the current way things are done won't allow them to correct themselves. *shrugs* Let's just hope we don't go and get in another war. That's be just the right thing to top off this mess that's going on.

    I'm willing to risk it. It's such a good phrase.

    how old are you?

    I'm the big 30, at least that's what my birth certificate makes me out to be.
  14. Oh, I'm like a ghost. I come and I go.
  15. The only way to 'fix' this economy is to use Austrian Economics as the school of thought. There are few politicians I know of who will try to implement this, and as such, we're screwed.

    Ron Paul

    Both Romney and Gingrich are flip-floppers. Gingrich is evil in my honest opinion. He plays the political game and moves to advance his personal position, not the position of us, the people. Romney is not much different than Obama. Ron Paul is dead on with many issues, and even if you disagree at least he is consistent and stubborn enough to vote the Consitution. If anything he will be a nice 'Check and Balance', which is what we reaaaally need in office right now. Because of both parties, our Liberty is down the tubes and on top of it they follow Keynesian Economics instead of Austrian Economics and keep ruining our economy by printing more money and attempting to spark the economic motor back into running. I could really get into a long debate on why Ron Paul is right on so many issues, but honestly, trying to convince anybody via the internet is almost always a waste of time. Convincing people to change core beliefs takes a big investment of time and mental energy on the parts of both parties and a willingness to listen. I used to be very 'Conservative' which means Neo-Conservative, but after much discussion and research, I've moved to a Paleo-Conservative stance.

    I'm guessing we can't vote for ourselves?

    Ron Paul

    Yeah, but I think he's really gaining ground recently. I'd vote for him regardless of his chances even though I think they are trying to get Romney in there as their pick. Newt is corrupt, and I don't see how anyone could honestly vote for him, especially as a conservative. What I like about Ron Paul is how he is intellectually leaps and bounds ahead of the others. Unfortunately it required a lot of reading and research to understand him and he also doesn't relate his positions well to some persons on issues like foreign policy and the War on Drugs in a debate setting. If you watch him talk in a thorough manner it all makes sense though. Anyhow, off to watch the last debate.

    SOPA Vote Is Today.

    Well the Internet Censorship bill vote is today. Let's hope it doesn't pass.

    Zippo or no Zippo?

    I carry both Bic and Zippo. The Bic preserves fuel longer, but the Zippo beats it out in all other areas. I've yet to have a Zippo fail me.

    2011 Bug Out Bag (BOB) Competition

    @ tinderwolf. Hey, I'm just happy to see other persons' bag setups and offer up mine. If it helps somebody tweak their bag, I'm happy. I glad to be able to tweak mine as well from the bags here. It was a great idea for a contest.

    The Walking Dead ~ Zombie Talk in General

    I've come to terms with most, and I do mean most, entertainment forms being poor from a logical standpoint. Something that was mentioned to me and I've never had a hard time with was the 'suspension of disbelief' when it comes to entertainment. The idea of 'I know it couldn't happen, but I'm going to throw that out the window and have fun' is about the only way to really enjoy most stories. I like the show, but the comics (graphic novels as they call them nowadays) are waaaaaaaay better and more gritty. I personally think a zombie apocalypse could never happen, but I digress.

    Weapon(s) of choice?

    I'm assuming I don't get to choose biological warfare items like a virus which insta-kills only zombies, so...
