Holding your ground: preparing for defence if it all falls apart

When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need To Survive When Disaster Strikes

and The Preppers Pocket Guide:101 Easy Things You Can Do to Ready Your Home for a Disaster

 

Good choices. I did a review of 101 Easy things.

http://survivalcache.com/book-review-preppers-pocket-guide/

 

It is a great checklist/guide. In my not so humble opinion its one drawback is a lack of depth. While this is inevitable in a pocket guide, things that you are unfamiliar with should be studied in some detail. What the guide does do is provide an excellent checklist for what to study and a reminder of details you may need. For example exactly how much chlorine bleach is needed to purify a gallon of water? I'm reading Holding now and it seems good. I've heard good things about When All Hell Breaks loose - I have it but haven't read it yet.

 

Again, I think some good choices for initial information.

I'm just starting out for the most part. Pretty behind info wise, so I thought that would be a good place to start.

 

You might feel as if your behind but really your ahead of the game. Just knowing that you should prep should put you in the top 10% of the USA private citizens. Learning a bit and active staring to prep should move you into the top 5%. See how far you are already? This is a great place to learn and share.

today: Taught my 6 and 8 year old boys how to split firewood with a machete and how to strip the bark fine enough to start a fire with a firesteel. we roasted marshmallows with the fruits of their labor :)

That's great. Teaching the family good outdoor skills and rolling in the family time as well. Bravo sir.

Sonoran6,

PERFECT! Making it fun to do the things they SHOULD know how to do is exactly the correct way to help your family learn. The Boy Scouts have been doing that for over a century. In fact, a good guide for the boys is the BSA handbook available on eBay for under $20; usually under $10. I prefer the 1965 version or earlier as it is less troubled with some of the modern PC junk. The scouts have done reasonably well in resisting it but it did creep in. Also, the Scout Leaders Guide is a good source for a parent teaching woodcraft to boys.

For what it is worth, in my not so humble opinion, YOU DID GOOD!

did a half mile perimeter recon on my bol. much to my surprise i found a natural h2o source. next weekend plan to map the area and determine ranges to landmarks.

 

that so rocks and double time if its here in GA too. now if you have the extra $$ sending off samples to get them checked by a quality water check place would be the way to go if i were in your shoes. it wouldnt hurt to do it 2 or 3 times over the course of the next 2 yrs.

not in Georgia. I am sure that the source is not potable. i never have drank water from an unknown that i haven't treated. I have seen Montezuma's revenge before. I even know of one person that has a permanent health condition from drinking bad water on a one week backpacking trip in Minnesota.

The Georgia extention service does that type testing for a reasonable fee. Good idea.

permanent health condition? did they even try to run it through a water filter?

 

compromised liver kidney and spleen. they drank straight from a stream. the land of 10,000 lakes. they thought the water had to be pristine.

 

ALWAYS FILTER AND/OR BOIL YOUR WATER WHEN USING AN UNKNOWN UNTESTED SOURCE.

When you map the area, get the distances from your likely firing positions and make range cards - 100 yards to that tree, 125 to the rock, 200 to the gate, that kind of thing. Make a small map (not necessary to be to scale but I like to keep things in range order, closest things closest and the range next to the item) and keep it at the firing position. Laminate if possible. Then when you go to the range, shoot your prime weapon at the listed ranges so you have a good feel for what the sight picture is. Something like, OK, 1/2 dot low at 75, cross-hairs centered at 125 and a half dot high at 200 or whatever but then you know. You can even put that data on the range card next to the range before you laminate it.

 

Adds to your ability to defend your local, in my not so humble opinion. (range finders are good for this - my neighbors might have been curious if I'd been out with a survey tape in their front yard.)

awake,

 

just curious, how do animals not get sick from the water sources that make us sick most of the time?

 

not sure. it may have something to do with the digestive system of an animal. Humans can ajust a little bit. The folks in third world countries can stomach the water there where a US citizen can not.

You can Google an actual military range card that you can download, print and fill out. They usually come with instructions on how to fill it out but here's a quick how to. Draw as if from a birds eye view of your target area. It doesnt have to be very detailed, make sure to include any dead space and have multiple TRPs (target reference points) with a brief description of the TRP, and its range. Once you have one of those for every firing position you can then create a larger range card that includes all of your firing positions showing your overlapping sectors of fire and so on. Hope this helps a little.
