A friend just sent me this . I haven't had a chance to really go over it yet, just thought I'd pass it along, for reading on those long cold winter nights...

30 lists
28.5 lists tainted by political correctness
1 list on a course to success if you personalize it

MY FAVORITES –
1. Extra rubbers for your sling shot (indefinite survival Alaska!)
2. A mouse trap in your carry pack (fanny pack Alaskan)

I envision Jeremiah Johnson hollering, “Snap that one with your new sling shot pilgrim, I’ll go get another one”

Or –

“Hey pilgrim, approach that next trap slow! There is something in it!”

Hmmm. A mouse trap for survival. That is something I never considered. Living in NYC, I am going to have to give this some thought.

After a major disaster are rats a food source, or competition for limited resources?

Think I'll go order more MRE's now.

Don't knock it, when I was little my grandfather got rid of the squirrels in his attic with rat traps and peanut butter.

My grandmother kinda frowned on him going in the attic with a .410. smile

"... are rats a food source..."

They could be a source of income; watch or read King Rat. Of course you're gonna need a bigger trap...

Funny, my grandmother did the same thing. She swore by peanut butter to catch mice, rats, squirrels, and other rodents. It worked pretty good as I remember. I wonder if they have a preference for chunky or smooth?grin

Actually rat traps may not be a bad idea. Carry that and an MRE tube of peanut butter and you might stay fat and happy for a while. Granted you're usually advised to set up half a dozen or more traps to actually catch something, starts adding up in weight. I may have to try this on squirrels next time I go home (they might frown on it in the dorms).
