  1. when they close the roads i'll be taking to the water. water puts distance between the chaos/mayhem and allows me to bypass traffic jams/roadblocks. every major city has at least one river or lake nearby and in my humble opinion the water/boats are often overlooked as bug out vehicles. i'd rather have a truck yes, but if that's not an option i'm taking to the rivers. my girlfriend and i have three kayaks, we can haul 700lbs of gear (plus ourselves) and we can easily pull 5mph all day (or night) without a drop of gas or a whisper of sound.
  2. no better than military surplus ammo cans though...either one will likely still be intact long after we are all dead and buried.
  3. pvc is never disappointing...that shit lasts forever
  4. my favorites are pvc pipe and surplus ammo cans. in case you all are interested, here's a link to a step by step of how i built one of my caches http://www.howtoburyyourstuff.com/my-personal-cache/
  5. i'd like to know everyone's opinion of this article. is this something that might catch on? http://politicalvelcraft.org/2011/11/14/u-s-sheriffs-rise-up-against-federal-government-sheriff-threatens-feds-with-swat-team/
  6. quite a read...excellent post!! i've suspected some of these facts for some time but also chose to be a part of the silent majority. and when the us government considers it's own people a greater threat than enemy combatants the future is bleak indeed.
  7. hey everyone i'm dave and i'm kind of new here. i'm a kayaker (my gf and i have 3) and i'm curious if anyone else out there is living in or near cities with waterways. being on the water can put some distance between you and potential chaos/mayhem and can give you the ability to bypass traffic jams/roadblocks. they're not as fast as a car, but in certain situations could provide a strong backup getaway. in my humble opinion, boats are often overlooked as escape or bug out vehicles. in our 3 kayaks, we can haul about 700lbs (plus ourselves) and make an easy 5mph all day (or night) without a drop of gas or any sound whatsoever.
  8. thanks for the warm welcome!! i have actually shot both crossbows and blowguns from my kayak lol...it tends to freak out the fisherman
  9. i'm wanting to get started in ham radios and i've been looking at these handheld baofeng ham's on amazon because they are affordable. are you saying you have to download and install software to operate the radio?
  10. i've always wanted to build my own mace...the movie "braveheart" sold me on the idea. i did not know that it was designed as a slashing weapon...scary just thinking about. btw there's no such thing as too much knowledge
  11. hey everyone i'm dave and i've recently made the transition from outdoorsman to prepper. i like the water and spend the summers in my kayak; i also have an obsession with primitve weapons like crossbows and blowguns
