While they aren’t as “potent” as modern “chemicals” there are dozens if not hundreds of herbal alternatives. My family is mostly Cherokee indian. they went thousands of years without “white mans medicines” and done fine. Worse case I/we’ll use those.

I have a ZT ken onion design ( same knife that Gibb’s carries on the NCIS series) Wish I could post a pic! I’ve had it for about 2 years. Although it was the most expensive knife I’ve ever bought I think it’s worth the money. My only issue with it is while it holds a good edge for a long time, it’s a BI### to sharpen. Course a big part of that is I’m not so good at sharpening knives :shakeno: I recommend that if you can afford the price ( Mine was almost $400)it’s a good investment

It doesn’t at least in my experiment. I think it’s mainly for convienence. My wife uses it for her coffee and we use it for tea and such. Plus once you figure out the ratio of powder to honey itself it seems to work better in recipes as the dry seems to mix easier. Plus the convinence we take the little packets with us when we go out instead of using sugar or whatever.

Hydrocarbon fuels • Re: Diesel powered vehicles during an EMP strike

April 12, 2017 101airborne 0

[quote=”Photon GuyThey should test these theories to see how accurate they are and to get at least an idea of what can be expected in an EMP strike.

Way before 1980 vehicles had electric motors to start the main engine which might run on gasoline or diesel. 100% non electronic vehicles would be the really old ones which were crank started which was from what I know more or less phased out and replaced with electric starters by 1920.

Anyway, I was thinking, with a diesel engine even if it isn’t 100% non electric if you could jury rig it somehow to be able to function without electricity since diesel does not rely on a spark plug to set it off.[/quote]

They have actually done some “testing” But can’t replicate the effects ( or what they think the affects are) to be sure. I think its a matter of interpretation. As some supposed tests results show no or little damage, and others show catostropic damage. About the only thing they could agree on is the fewer “electronic components the less chance of damage.

True about the “Electric” starter. However their is a difference between the Electric and Electronic. In an EMP Pulse in theory it would destroy and/or disable anything electronic. But wouldn’t per se damage electrical items like your toaster nd old school coffee pot. Same with the electric starter on a car. Older vehicles made in the 70’s and before had points, condensors, carberators, and such that made them dun with a limited few if any relays. So again in theory would continue to run due to total lack of electronics not counting the stereo/radio.
Again its true a diesel engine doesn’t need a “spark” to fire pretty much all modern factory engines both Diesel and Gasoline depend on all types of electronics to function.

About the only thing that affects electrical items again in theory is a CME (solar flare) and it would destroy the electrical grid via the electrical wires. Anything attached to the grid via the house/business wiring. Anything not plugged in would be safe. Even a in line surge protector that is designed to protect your appliances and such from an electrical surge wouldn’t be safe because a CME indiced surge would take micro seconds and would be over before a surge protector or breaker could trip.

Again any and all of this in theory could happen or nothing at all could happen,

Im wondering how Diesel powered vehicles would manage during and following an EMP strike, if such vehicles would run or have any function. I know that a diesel engine does not use an electrical spark to ignite its fuel the way a gasoline engine does so I was wondering if diesel powered vehicles would have any use during an EMP strike.

It’s not a matter of what type of fuel the vehicle uses, or how the fuel is “ignited” that is the issue in an EMP. But rather the electronic parts that control everything from the ignition switch to the controlling the idle. Some theories state that an EMP would completely fry all of these. Requiring replacing all electronics before the vehicle will start/ run. Some of these same theories believe that even uninstalled components on parts store shelves would also be destroyed and the only “safe ones” would be ones shielded in a faraday cage or similar. Then there atr the theories that a metal/ steel car body on rubber tires preventing it from being grounded and not at “ground zero” of the blast would not be affected or minimally so. requiring limited replacement of fuses and possible relays.

To be completely sure of no damage you’d have to have a 100% non electronic vehicle either something built prior to 1980 or converted (primarialy diesels) to non electronic engines.

Terrorism & other Man made disasters • Re: They Are Playing With A Revolution

March 2, 2017 101airborne 0

Hmmmm………..Honestly, I think that we have been heading for some kind of “incident” for the last 20+ years. Be it a revolution, civil war, collapse ( I lean more toward the last one). If you look back it seems that anytime someone is elected that goes against the sociodemocratic, liberal mindset it seems all the fruitcakes, nuts, and such come pouring out of the woodwork. Anything that threatens the entitelist mindset causes havoc. For those of us old enough to remember similar reactions happened when Reagan was elected. While not as severe at the time because the liberals hadn’t been able to brainwash and condition a entire generation and start on a second. But still went crazy, and made the wildest of accusations INCLUDING that Reagan was the ANTICHRIST.

What these people don’t, won’t and never will understand is that the majority of the people have decided that enough is enough of THEIR rule and policies. That the MAJORITY do not want them controlling every single aspect of our lives. The MAJORITY does NOT want to be led around by our nose from the cradle to the grave because we are “to stupid to control our own lives”. No matter what we do or say they think we’re joking.

Is it going to take a revolution, or political war of some type to settle it? Quite possible. As much as I hate to say it, it may very well be the time for something to happen so that we can take back control.

If at home YES
5 minutes to uncover and hook camper to the Expedition.
10 minutes to load emergency gear in other trailer and hook to jeep.
20 minutes to load firearms, pet stuff, Home evac totes extra clothes and food.
10 minutes for final sweep for anything missed.

45 minutes and we’re on the road.
