09/12/19 05:01 PM Has any of you really buried a survival cache ?? by Chisel

There were many proposed ideas for prepping or survival. A survival cache was one of them.
I never buried one, but stored some stuff in my father's house some 100 miles away.
Being an urban guy, it was all I could or want to do.

How about you guys??

We're considering getting some basic phones for the car kits -- just to be able to call for help.

This seems to happen about once a year. Very unfortunate and sad.

09/07/19 04:02 AM Everything we've read about bear spray is wrong? by Phaedrus

Oh, boy! Here we go again! whistle grin Interesting article; it may be that everything we've been told about bear spray vs firearms is wrong and based on a very flawed reading of very flawed studies. It appears that bear spray is very effective at 'hazing' bears that are curious but has about a 33% chance of dissuading and actual attack. And it's less effective against black bears than Grizzlies.

I would encourage everyone to carefully read the linked article, then read it again.

Discuss!
