you will notice redundancy in my BOB I have and advise using miniature items 2- 9volt lights are barely larger than a

old pocket box of matches and weight nothing

the Kaito KA500 radio is the one thing I would hate to part with if you look at the features you may see why

 

It comes with a High quality AC type brushless generator. The solar panel powers the radio by itself and charges the built-in batteries as well. To maximize the sunlight’s rays, the solar panel is designed to tilt with the suns position to receive the energy during the day time. On the bottom side of the solar panel is a 5 LED reading lamp that you can use in poorly lit conditions. The radio is built with a multi-function LED flashlight. The super bright LED on the side can be used as a flashlight or can be a red flashing emergency signal.

 

The 7 Band Weather radio precisely gives you weather bands. The weather alert feature enables you to receive the alert signal when a disaster arrives.

 

Specifications:

 

6 Ways of Power:

 

1. Dynamo Cranking Power: 120 turns per minute of cranking will power the built in Ni-MH battery pack with strong current and voltage.

 

2. Solar Panel Power: Under the direct sunlight, the solar panel will power the radio without a problem.

 

3. AA Batteries: You can use 3 normal AA batteries to run the radio for maximum reception.

 

4. A built-in Rechargeable battery pack.

 

5. AC adaptor charge from the 3.5 mm jack. (Optional)

 

6. Charge from a computer via USB port.

 

Lighting:

 

1. 5 LED reading lamp for camping and emergency use.

 

2. White LED flashlight

 

3. Red LED blinking for emergency alert.

 

 

 

Radio Reception

 

1. AM: 520-1710 KHz

 

2. FM: 87.00- 108.00 MHz

 

3. SW1: 3.20-9.00MHz

 

4. SW2: 9.00- 22.00MHz

 

Weather Band: 7 standard bands for all stations, PLL crystal control circuit for stable reception

 

5. Weather Alert: To be activated by weather alert signals.

 

To power the radio with sunlight, the solar panel is deigned to tilt at any angle to receive the best sunlight

 

AC adaptor is an option, you can order online from them

 

the MP3 player I mentioned has Am and Fm radio as well as 8 gigs of memory if you want you can make MP3 files on your computer of anything

survival related or other instructive notes some have a voice recorder feature

 

I forgot to mention I have a 5X parabolic mirror 3+ inches in diameter find them in pharmacy isle

 

do I need all this crap well NO I could make it with a pistol box of ammo and a large knife but life sucks enough already if you think it's too much

 

a kids stroller or bike trailer and drag it behind you OK for hard road but not great for the woods or make a pair of drag poles

 

2 poles one pin w/ R clip or called a hairpin clip that fits well to a large push mower wheel some spacers to keep wheel from rubbing the poles

a small tarp and a few bungee's and you can hold the end of the poles or I would have 2 holes in the handles and put a rope through and put it over my shoulders behind my neck and drag it the closer the weight to the wheel {careful not to drag on the wheel} the easer to pull

The rope needs to be adjusted too high not controllable to low uncomfortable.

as long as it can be disassembled and fit in your vehicle if you use 3/4 inch iron pipe you can stuff it with items and with couplings you can make it longer

than your space one more pole and you have a tee pee.

Get inventive and make screw on tips for gigging spear heads net hoops different sizes to catch birds at night or fish / minnows {redneck sardines or bait} with a piece of mosquito netting

 

Anywho imagine an A with or without the cross bar and a para cord net between and eye bolts to attach the para cord hammock or tarp you can push it like a wheel barrow but better to drag it as it could turn into a pole vault .....

Just my EDC

the bag is one of these http://www.uscav.com/productinfo.aspx?productid=18784&tabid=548&catid=3176

WITH a few mods. [ATTACH=CONFIG]1650[/ATTACH]

Its not made with a CCW in mind, but the material that lines the main capartment is a smoother type of Hook&Loop, allowing me to securely insert one of these on one side:

http://www.maxpedition.com/store/pc/UNIVERSAL-CCW-HOLSTER-34p48.htm

Which also leaves enough room on the same side to insert one of these: http://www.maxpedition.com/store/pc/Hook-and-loop-PALS-Webbing-Panel-Insert-34p1219.htm

My BoB [ATTACH=CONFIG]1655[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]1656[/ATTACH]

COnsider the fact that if i have a chance, and IF i deem it neccessary to pack the wife and BoBs to hit the road, this also means i have very very little intention of ever returning. Detroit is not prone to Floods, hurricanes, earthquakes or really any other natural event or 'Act of God' that people die from. SO whatever reason it may be to pack this up and GTFOOD, itll be a one way trip. THis also means I'll have my EDC bag as well.

The one thing I do not see and it pisses me off to no end because I have posted about it to no end {just kidding}

 

A small block and tackle using 550 par cord:

many hardware stores carry blocks with different width sheaves usually a 3 with a 4 is the best

a 2 with a 3 sheave is good but not as much power, but a hell of a lot more than you can do without a block and tackle even if you live in

a treeless area boulders or a buried dead man.

many of you speak of getting a hammock without a block and tackle many will be dragging on the ground due to rope stretch a block & tackle solves this problem quickly also it can be used to winch large game up or pull the hide off

 

I guess here is a good place to place some knot information in mountainous areas a rope is your life or that of a travel companion

there are a number of reasons to repel or climb even to rope together in a flood or blinding storm use for a guide line in same incidents

if your spelunking you need a line to guide you out should it become a divergent hole in lakes and streams not to be swept away and an

accent line if free diving using a buoy to keep you from being taken out in a tide.

 

the one compound knot everyone should know by heart is a truckers hitch it consists of actually three knots and there are variations of these

but on one end a bowline bowline on a bight and a clove or a stop hitch or combination of both

 

here is a site that has animated knots like a movie it shows how to tie them

 

http://www.animatedknots.com/doublefishermans/index.php

 

having a deck of Knot playing cards to have a way to pass the time during foul weather and also have a library of knots and how to tie them..

 

http://www.campingsurvival.com/knotplaycarl.html

 

Remember that doubling your line to repel allows you to pull it down after you have reached bottom always have a plan and review it to insure

you have a safe and clear idea of what your attempting to do and how it will conclude bearing in mind any possibility of accidents or problems.

ENO hammock and Kelty Noah's tarp combo makes a great lightweight shelter. I would recommend a firearm or other ranged defensive weapon. Some paracord is always nice to have. Duct tape is essential. Water and a means to purify water. Food? Bandana is good, sheemag is better. Compass! Good local map. Just some ideas.

Got the firearms locked down! Big believer in the 3 gun rule...Standard 16" M4 with basic mods. Glock as my secondayr. The wife has a Mossberg 500 as well. Just aquired 100 ft. of coyote brown 550 cord in addition to my king cobra weave paracord bracelet. I must've forgot the tape cuz there's a roll of it sitting right next to my storage container!! I also just recently added a sheemagh to the inventory and will keep the bandanas as back-up's. "Two is one; one is none!" Thanks for the suggestions!!

The medium size Alice pack works perfectly for a few reasons. It has the perfect amount of space to carry what I think I'll need for at least 72 hours. The straps are very comfortable and the kidney pad adds additional support. It also sits high enough on my back so I don't feel like I'm carrying someone (good weight displacement). As far as ammo is concerned, I'll be carrying 6 M4 mags and 5 pistol mags. As far as water goes, I'm still trying to work that out. I know the recommended amount per person per day is 1 gallon, but my bug out location is less than a day's travel time away so I was thinking a camelbak and one canteen per person...any suggestions??

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!

    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
