    Ultimate BOL

    I have for sale a 1/2 acre mountain lot in Timberon,NM for sale.It is one hour North of El Paso,Tx.in the Sacramento Mountains.Very secluded and remote.There are some one hundred or so residents that live there.It has stand by water which means the water is at the property plus electricity is one lot behind.I bought this property some years ago to build a cabin on it but never got around to it.You can also camp on it for i think six months per year.Taxes are $55.00 per year and the water stand by is i think $45.00. Email if you if your interested.

    Capt i believe i have everything since i last posted.I got the bag situation down to three choices.1. medium molle transport bag.2. blackhawk 3 day assult bag.# level 3 molle assult bag.I have spent too much time reading what other people have.Oh well thats why i joined.To get educated from people that have been prepping for years.I was wondering how do i find people in my area that are preppers i can maybe split purchases on stuff or maybe just talk.

    Yes as usual.Im better packing a three day bag.Once a year i travel with friends to the Mid Ohio Vintage Motorcycle Festival.I camp there and have all my equipment.But this time i want to see if i can survive w/o leaving everynight for dinner.I will bring enough food and water to keep me going.This will be a good test for me and my preparedness.Plus the entire trip is about a week with travel time.I could practice this being my Bug Out Trip.Having enough supplies for a week less gas of course.Its in August so i have enough time to plan.Plus i travel to NC to get friends they have many army surplus stores there more so than in Fla.

    Damn was this in the Tampa area?You are right about training.Im big and strong and run everyday.Once when my wife and i went to a Miami Heat game.After the game we were walking back to the car.Someone was sassing me about my wade jersey or something.As we walked he kept it up I stopped and said TURN AROUND AND WALK AWAYw/o turuning around.If i turned around i was prepared for combat.Luckly he called my bluff.

    My solar charger doesnt have a battery.It uses a usb cable directly to my phone.I let my phone discharge all night.I put on the charger outside at 9:30.This will be my first test. UPDATE:It charged my samsung razer in about 4 hours from dead to full charge.I like that.

    Im going to use my backpack for the time being as a edc.In case im stuck on the road and cant get home.I go to jobs everyday with my work van and it will be inside.Update:Just bought a 5 watt 1 amp solar charger for my cell phone.Im looking at it now.I will post how it works when i use it a few times.I remember when hurricane wilma came we were w/o power for two weeks.Plus the some of the cell towers were down.They all have generators now as does publix stores.Im prepping myself to get home if there is a event.If im stuck in traffic when TSHTF i want to be prepared.

    Im staying no matter what but still need help

    Very interesting im working on my bag.Something i will have in my car all the time or my work van.If you call this a edc thats fine.I have been researching different bags.This bag i will get i can carry with me if i have to walk home or something.I think for the moment i waill carry one of my kids black backpacks.I plan on visiting the local army navy surplus stor this weekend for ideals.The things i will have will be all necessary and needed but not too heavy.Just enough stuff in case i have to spend the night on the highway. a e

    Im staying no matter what but still need help

    I really dont know what to do with it.But it is a weapon.I dont have a concelled weapon permit to carry it.Im wondering if i should get one and keep it in my car or house.

    Im staying no matter what but still need help

    UPDATE:Over the weekend i was out of town did buy a few more items. 1.Energizer crank up flashlight. 11.00 WM. No Batteries 2.More water. 3.Coleman aluminum LED light 75 lumins very bright. 18.00 WM. 4.Energizer headlight under 5.00 at WM. Wanted to share my watch with everyone its a Casio Pathfinder.Has atomic timekeeping, its solar powered,has sensor for barometer.altimeter and digital compass which i carry everyday. Also been thinking about my cooking fuel.I have many of those coleman gas canisters for my cookstove and lateren. I might find some more things to use this fuel with.They are cheap and available. But for now i will continue to find items for my edc stuff i need for say 24 hous like you said.Is that what you carry in your car all the time?Than its really not on you then. Im nevery more than a hour from my house.So i will be thinking about things that i might need to get back to my house.In case i get caught up in something big. I keep coming back to water. Thanks for all the great advice.

    Thank you Capt Bart i may need to read your reply many times to fully comprehand your points. My local gun shop says the trigger cannot be modified to shoot faster.Iam dissapointed i thought gunsmiths do this kind of work.Oh well Should i start to build my edc first or my bob first? Can you provide some TSHTF events I might encounter in my area? Also the thing im worried about most and want to plan for is hyperinflation and storm events.

    Im staying no matter what but still need help

    Tinderwolf well said i have been planing my bob but decided to work on a edb i cant keep in the car.Seeing im not going anywhere but home.I have read some posts about what to carry.Im studing that now.As far as weapons are concerned my son gave ne a ruger lcp but i dont like it the trigger pull is too much i mean you have to pull the trigger all the way back to fire it.I heard you cannot modify it to make it shoot with a quicker pull.My question is would you keep the same things in your bob as in a everyday carry.I dont know what type of problems you would have not being able to get home.I ant to keep a edb in my vehical that makes more sense to me at the moment.Also looking a a solsr pack to charge my cell phone. Even after wilma we lost our power for two weeks now i heard the cell towers have generators.tAm i thinking right?
