    Knife in Get Home bag

    Thanks for the replies. I am thinking I will keep it at my job in my desk and keep a smaller blade in the bag. I have one at home and if the SHTF while Im at work, I will just grab it and go.

    Knife in Get Home bag

    I live in New York. I keep a get home bag in my car. Does anyone know if it is legal to carry a Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate Knife with Serrated Edge in my Get Home Bag? Link Below. I just dont want to get pulled over for some stupid reason and have the cop look in my Get Home bag and get locked up for having it. Thanks.

    Emergency heating

    Tonight it is going down to 28F but in January and Feb it could be 10 degrees F. I have 2 kids. 7 and 5 years old. I would think I would need heat. Especially if it were for a month. I am looking into MRE's and sternos for food.

    Emergency heating

    Hello all. Im new here. New to prepping but very convinced it is necessary. I live the suburbs of NYC. After Hurricane Sandy, I realized being without power and/or gas for an extended period of time is a reality. I have a generator but I never thought I would not be able to get gas for it. My father has a generator that runs off natural gas from Con Edison which never went down so he was fine but the whole situation made me want to be prepared to have to live off the grid for more than just a few days. Being new to prepping, with no bug-out location, I think setting a realistic goal for myself of first being able to bug-in for 1 month. After I have enough bug in supplies and the know how to do that, I will continue my prep adventure to perhaps obtain a bug out location, extended supplies and the "live off the land" know how. My question is... Assuming I have food, water, security and a way to get rid of waste, how would I heat my house to survive off the grid? I was thinking of installing a natural gas generator but what if that went down? If disaster strikes in June or July, I would be fine. If it hits in January, Im screwed. I have a pellet stove but it needs electric to ignite and blow. I do not have a fireplace. I was thinking of installing a wood burning stove or research propane heat or generator with at least a 1 month supply. Any heating ideas would be helpful.. Thanks.
