I havenít had a chance to unpack and repack the emergency kits yet, but I did put my ECWSS back in the car. This act brought to my attention that I may have too much prep stuff in the car; Iím going to go through everything and see if there are plac

Since another thread is primarily about the fires ongoing in CA, I thought it might be timely to start a thread about respirators to deal with one of the by-products of wildfires. First though, what is Smoke? Quote:Smoke is a collection of airborne

Recent events have given me the impression that I need to take a firmer hand in maintaining standards of civility here on ETS. I would rather not spend my time that way. Look for PMs from me if I need you to change your wording or tone. I would pr
