    Bug Out Equipment. What & Why.

    I decided to post this because when I read lists of other people’s modern equipment for bugging out I often see items that I can’t make sense of. Items that are NOT sustainable & seem of very little use. Some say “well I use this until it breaks & then I throw it away”. The problem with that is...

    Stinging Nettle.

    Stinging nettles can also be boiled or steamed as a green veg to go with other dishes. To me it tastes like Spinach. This plant grows widely in the UK & in Australia.

    The problems with some preppers today. One problem some preppers seem to have is the inability to prepare for a variety of disasters. This is really not that hard, yet many just don’t get it. They also have what is known as 24 hour & 72 hour bug out bags. Why not just have a bag that will...

    All About Flintlocks. Part Eleven. Carrying Gunpowder.

    The traditional method of carrying gunpowder is to use a powder horn, & in my opinion this is still the best method. The base plug in a powder horn should NEVER be glued to secure it in the horn. This base plug is a safety release should the horn explode. The base plug blows out & releases the...

    Compromise.

    I have noticed that few preppers are actually prepared to list the equipment that they have in their B.O.B. I am not sure why this is. "When packing for the trail there must be a compromise between two principles; minimum weight & maximum self reliance". I wonder how many preppers actually...
