    Veteran benefits

    they called me yesterday...this is a medical benefit only along the lines of a nursing home type or home care type its not really a general benefit of cash. although you can get that 1800-2800 in medical care costs per month...

    Veteran benefits

    patriotangels.com/these initially appear to be benefits beyond the normal ones you get for serving in combat...widows and widowers of vet's can also receive these benefits... 1,800 for an individual or 2,800 for a couple...its a slow process to get it...honorable, general and medical discharges...

    LE EMT MULTI-TOOL

    it looks good but there are some bad reports on it...with only a little use.... gerber or leatherman are always good solid multi tools....
  13. well age can matter in that a young person might not have enough life experience to make the right life or death decsions.... dick prenokke of alaska stayed in the wilderness until he was like 89+ years old alone he started out when he was 55...so older folks do need to take care for what they are doing but it can be done. he quit only because of the winters.... gender is a bit more tricky its true that women are weaker physically than men but there are exceptions to the rule and some women can do the work of a man...training/skills are key here for gender.... i'm 54, would i want to be alone in the wilderness when i am over 70? probably not... why? i was rasied with traditional values and stick with them good or bad....
  14. i know hickory, maple and mesquite are good for smoking meats but are there any other trees that can be used for smoking meats? why i ask is that here in the PNW most(75%) trees are doug-fir or hem-fir and i don't think those can be used for smoking meats....
  15. how about a check list for food and supplies at your bug in or bug out location?
  16. sounds good look forward to seeing it....can't think of anything right now but will let you know if i do...
  17. i feel your pain...politics is turning into something very ugly as of late(last 50 years)...
