Thank you sir. I’m looking at getting into Ham and will certainly be trying to check it out. I just have to find a radio to start with that will enable me to at least listen while I learn.บาคาร่าบนมือถือStatistics: Posted by Cosmo88 — Wed Jan 17, 2018…

I wonder if it would be possible to bury one 4′, then use earthbags to build up the rest of the walls and run rafters across the earthbag walls and overtop.JohnStatistics: Posted by Onebigelf — Sun Oct 15, 2017 7:15 pm

Survival Shelters • Weird Retreat

September 29, 2017 Saxon Violence 0

Friends,

This fellow didn’t intend for this to be survival retreat. I don’t think the design is very useful for most of us, but it is fun to consider. Imagine that you had closed it in and had a Ammo-Can wood stove and one year’s supply of low-bulk freeze-dried food…

A single person could live there for a year comfortably—coming down once per week or so to fetch more water and dump body wastes.

My biggest objection is that you could put a good deal of work and material into this and it is subject to be discovered and torn down by the authorities at any time.

I believe that even stupid or impractical ideas can sometimes stimulate the imagination of someone just right to inspire something far more useful. Second, I’d like to see a gadget like this in the next low-budget Zombie movie or online survival story I read.

Survival Shelters • Re: DIY Underground Shelter – With parts

Very interesting….Looks like an option for an extremely well build.

I’m completely ignorant to average cost to these type items but is $20K plus all shipping cost a good deal for a 14′ X 20′ parts only?

I think I saw at one time a shelter company putting something just a bit smaller completely for you for a little more in cost…Also had the air filtration and blast doors and escape hatch…..Am I wrong in that recollection?

Again, I really don’t know so please excuse the ignorance if I’m just way off base here….Thanks for the link.

Survival Shelters • DIY Underground Shelter – With parts

September 11, 2017 Whisper 0

Hey all

Somewhere around here, I posted the idea of making an underground shelter using dry stacked concrete blocks. Well, I found a place that’s current that sells a roof system as well as all the parts, like air filtration, doors and all the rest. It’s very possible to make a DIY safe bomb shelter for your family without breaking the bank. Your just going to have to work your butt off to do it LOL

I plan to :) I miss my PA house that came with one.

I have nothing to do with this site at all. :gunsmile:

Survival Shelters • Re: Tarp Tents, your thoughts?

March 26, 2017 OMark 0

I’ve used a tarptent brand before and have found them to be overall great. For the size of the 2 person tent it is very light, and once the seems are impregnated it’s pretty much water repellent. Not as durable as your typical backpacking tent, but for a lightweight option to keep as backup, it’s a great option.
