    Juzcallmesnake, alot of good advice there. I think I will go ahead and look for 2nd hand knee brace and two hand and arm splints. Am supposed to be wearing the hand and wrist splints every night I sleep but it keeps me in a mental injured mode when I use stuff like that. However, I can see the day where it will be a non choice item. The knee brace I used to own and gave away as I hated it. BUT same deal there will be a day of non choice. Will try to keep costs down and purchase one 2nd hand. If not for me might be for someone else. T Thanks for the support NavyVet_77 I think there are alot of like minded folk here. I do have tunnel vision when I set my mind to things. Always feel I can endure almost any amount of pain if its for a good cause. As long as I can say I have done my best then when I close my eyes the final time I will rest in peace

    Yep, I have come to the realization that arthritis will probably screw me in a SHTF situation but I am not letting that stop me from doing the best I can. I probably wont be able to carry my backpack far, due to arthritis in my knees and both my hands have arthritis which might make it difficult to do the knots I am trying to learn or any of the many things I need to be fully capable of. (slingshots another tough one) I don't care though. Not going to give it power over me. I am going to pick that damn bugout bag up and get it on my back, put one foot ahead of the other until I black out if necessary. Have been practicing in my bedroom just picking it up and getting it on my back. Its the first step of many

    Are your friends sheeple?

    Amen to that

    Are your friends sheeple?

    Excoastie, something I learned a long time ago and I am still guilty of forgetting this is that we are not everyones teacher. For the dear friends that I love I will extend myself. So far it has alienated me from a couple that were dear to me. A Doctor and his wife. Both extremely cerebal yet incredibly stupid when it comes to survivalism. Okay, I realized I forgot that I am not their teacher. You have to allow people to make their mistakes and learn at their own pace. On the other hand, another couple that I love dearly are welcoming me to show them and help them get prepped. I will be flying down to the US for a few days to stay with them and that will be our focus. *other than laughing and eating of course* Extend your hand to the worthy ones in your circle. If rebuffed just try to not let it hurt your feelings.

    Thanks Inspirational Need to learn what punkwood and fat wood are
  13. Ahhh MommyLiberty you will know what I mean when I say its not cool in the airlines to discuss this type of thing. Its a very judgemental arena. Way too much time on everyones hands to gossip. I am interested in the Rolly Polly Extreme. Will check it out. I usually fly the YVR - Syd long haul flights. In an area like Sydney and Vancouver I know I am at risk of earthquake and need to keep myself on the ready. The only thing that holds me back is money. Have just finished vacuum sealing food for my cat and myself should SHTF.. Every day I try to do at least one thing to better my situation. Bless you and any tips will always be appreciated <3
  14. Thanks so much I will check it out <3
  15. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated friends. Hate buying things twice. Would like to buy one good one that will last. <3
