    Water storage

    I wouldn't go stacking a bunch of weight up in one spot in an apartment without know what the floor is made of. Then again, if you're on the ground floor you're probably good. I have a little apartment that I stay in on work nights (about 3 a week). It's cheap, but clean and well maintained. The problem is that it was built cheaply, lol. If I stacked 75 pounds in one concentrated location I don't know if it'd be there a week later, lol.

    Compact Militarized Sleeping Bags

    For BOB tents, sleeping pads, and sleeping bags I'd look at places like REI, Altrec, Back Country, and Moose Jaw. There are some things that ultralight backpackers users that are well rated and very lightweight and compact (as well as pricey), but you could go camping, hiking with it, etc. If I had to evacuate, i.e. the only reason I'd bug out, I'd go indoors somewhere else, so this element to bugging out isn't critical for me. The Sportsman's Guide has Gore-Tex bivy covers on sale right now for about $50 I think if you're looking to militarize a more quality civilian kit.

    Warning To American Gun Owners From Canadian News Anchor

    People are ignorant. I watched Bill O'Reilly the other night. He recommended registering all firearms and federalizing all firearms crimes. I'm ok with the latter but obviously not the former. Important part: Dave asked Bill why anyone would need something like a AR-15. Bill said, if you're a rancher along the Mexican border you've got to have it to protect yourself from narcotics traffickers. To summarize, Dave was ignorant that such violent atrocities are happening along the border and that they do spill over the wire to the U.S. particularly onto the private property of American citizens. Bill explained. Dave questioned saying, if that's true wouldn't someone in the government know that? Bill's reply, they don't care, they don't want to solve the problem. That was a plus one for Bill, but he did say that he doubted anyone on Long Island would need such a rifle. Again, who the crap cares about need? It's a right, a want, and by God I'm going to own one or as many as I choose. Again, I say put the army on the border to backup the border patrol and be done with it by whatever means necessary, but that's just my opinion.

    Warning To American Gun Owners From Canadian News Anchor

    I chose not to watch and take part in his socialist rhetoric. I think that's a stupid remark for him to make - an emotional jab to foster unity and impart a sense of involvement by voters, lol. Stupid.

    What have you done today to better your Prep? II

    If you want the mental prep just watch the Jason Bourne trilogy or this new Bourne Legacy movie which I just saw. It's easy to evade. All you need are four things. 1) Awesome hand to hand combat skills. 2) A supply of random passports. 3) Loads of cashed stashed around the globe, the door panel of an old car, or $40,000 in the lining of your jacket. 4) A personal contact that knows something about Treadstone or Outcomes. Easy. I've already got this down.

    I feel a sudden dislike by my Canadian friend.

    Goal Zero/ Guide 10 adventure kits...Bluekangaroos...

    Ha. Dang. I bought mine two weeks ago. It was $94.95 with S&H included. I wish I had known so I could've waited, and I wish I'd known about the newsletter offer!!

    Basic minimum kit for a planned day hike

    I have a couple of those flimsy, disposable ponchos still in their packaging. I figure I could put one on the ground and one on the roof. Still, I don't take anything specifically for shelter. I have a mil. poncho under the backseat of the truck in its little pouch. If I had to have it I've got it, but I don't day hike with it. I'll give the Paratarp a look.
  12. I've got a spare bladder, drink tube, and what not laying around, and I'd like a small bag to put it in. If you or your friends have a black, clean, functional, Camelbak Mule, HAWG, or Ambush laying around then hit me up. I want the military verions of the Mule and not the civy-sport model. I don't care if the bladder components are present or not. Thanks and hope to do business with you!

    Basic minimum kit for a planned day hike

    I've actually spent entire days in the woods with nothing but something to drink. It's funny what you don't find a need more if you don't have it. It's fun to plan and stock up for stuff though although yes I do like to seriously be prepared. Back in the 90s, I used to rock an ALICE belt and suspenders with a canteen and pertinent pouches. Then I got self conscious about it, and started using a small backpack, lol. I still use a backpack. I like the Dave Canterbury approach of 5 C's: cover, coradage, combustion, cutting, and container. Something to shelter with or create shelther with. Cordage is obvious. A way to make fire. Something to cut with and preferably a backup. An item to hold water and I mentally add make more water clean and potentially cook/boil in. As a personal confession, it's the cover I'm usually deficient in with my little packs.

    Guess I better get ready for a strip search and a trip tropical Guantanamo. I guess the fact that I don't drive a van and haven't produced any alternative currencies isn't enough to get me off the hook.
