Solar lights-(driveway/path markers) something with an on/off switch for night time lighting in your building.
Solar security lights set up around the “outer perimeter” to let you know if someone is around, these can always be relocated to other spots if someone knows or (finds) there location.
Solar charging panels (portable) for anything you may need charged.

Buckets
Towels
Chess Board Game
Mantels or wicks for lantern’s

I have worked with a few previously misguided folks (felons) on a few jobs over the years. A couple of them made a living from B&E on untended, open access storage lockers. Their success caused me to give pause to my practices doing such. Furthermore, a couple of years ago, a storage locker i rented suffered weather damage from high wind wherein the entire sheet metal building was ripped off the concrete foundation exposing everything i ,and others, had stored there. The goods were largely intact but exposed for all to see who had what for several hours. If yours is that well protected, it probably has video surveillance as well. That means the owner and his employees know what you have stored there.

I would suggest a remote location with a shipping container very well concealed. It need not be buried, rather looking like something it is not.

Also, you might want to read what FerFal wrote about the scavenging practices undertaken by the hungry masses when Argentina has it’s economic crisis a couple of decades ago. In summary, he wrote that no road, street, or cattle trail was unventured. No house, shed or lot was left unsearched.

The only way to do this is to stay mobile (on the move), and how long can you do that.

BOL’s and Retreats • You Have Just Finished a Remote BOL…

September 29, 2017 Saxon Violence 0

Friends,

Just for the sake of argument—lets suppose that you have a rather remote cabin built somewhere and that you can’t drive any closer than 10 to 20-Miles from your cabin. You’ve stocked your cabin with all of the standard stuff. Given the difficulty of transporting stuff to your cabin, you have to be a bit selective as to exactly what you carry in.

Lets say that three days of pushing or pulling will get one of those 300-pound capacity wheeled game haulers up to your front door…

Now, everyone try to tell me some things that it would be worthwhile to carry in AND that you might ordinarily not think of.

Please, no toilet paper, knife, axe, fishhooks. Those kind of things should be self evident to anyone of reasonable intelligence.

After much thought: Pictures or posters for the walls. Those 16”x20” exploded drawings of 1911A1’s, AK-47’s etc. are easy on my eyes. I’ve seen them on gunstore walls and military barracks. No, I don’t Need a diagram to reduce a 1911A1 to possession and reassemble it. I can’t even field strip an AK—but if I had one, I would study it until I thoroughly understood its action. Its your wall. A chart of the Periodic Table? The Last Supper? A Serena Williams Poster? :eek::clap: Anatomy chart? Impressionist Art Painting Replica?—whatever.

Putting a laminated topo map of your area on your wall might be useful, especially at first. A map on the dinner table covered with a sheet of acrylic might also be nice. Not as your only map, but as an additional map.

I’d want a small vise, maybe even two. Most hand woodworking tools can be built if you have the metal part—for planes, this is the blade. Everything else can be made of wood.

Of course then you need books on tool building and books on doing hand woodwork—unless you already know.

Bailing wire, copper wire, trash bags, safety pins, straight pins, thumbtacks, garbage bags…

I really groove on Stag grips. Mice and rats have been known to gnaw on stag grips and handles. Any gun stored at the site should be in a sealable metal box and surrounded with steel wool…

Books: I assume that everyone will bring a Bible, most of the Foxfire books, books by your favorite gun and survival experts, books on non-Euclidean geometry…

But an additional a couple of shelves worth of unread paperbacks from a used book store might help you while away some boring times.

I think that I’d eventually get one or two of those 4×8 drawer-box bins of assorted screws, rivets, springs, nails etc—I mean a small cabinet devoted to each. Of course screws, bolts, washers—things that you know you’ll use a lot of, you need to buy in bulk.

Curtains and curtain rods—something festive. It gives better insulation, better light discipline and bright colors tend to lift the spirits.

Several sets of nail clippers. Mine get too dull to use easily every few years and keeping my nails cut short is extremely important to me.

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.

General Energy Discussion • Off Grid? Really?

September 29, 2017 Saxon Violence 0

Friends,

I believe that people should do whatever they think is in their best interest. I’m not looking to start an argument…

But once again I got taken in by someone’s “Off-Grid” thumbnail on “U” Tube. Generating your own power is certainly off the central grid, but if you get too extreme about alternative power generation, you’re not truly “Off-Grid” you’re on your own Mini-Grid.

Maybe there is another term for what I mean, but to me “Off-Grid” means that you’re willing to live without electricity for the most part. Is there another word for this concept?

I’m no purist. If you want to burn 5-gallons of gasoline per month, or pedal a bicycle generator or put up a Couple Solar panels so you can run your TV and VCR occasionally, or charge a Chess Playing Device or even to light a few strategic LEDs—hey that’s cool.

If you are largely turning your back on much of the modern world—how much turning are you doing if you need to take most of your electric devices along with you?

If you really think that society might totally collapse, it probably won’t be back in your lifetime. Having an elaborate cotton-candy and ice cream machine in your generator shed only postpones the inevitable.

I remember Ragnar Benson writing that he had 3-freezers a generator and 2-spare generators and he intended to make extensive use of his his freezers after a collapse. How long would a freezer last if you could do basic repairs? 5 to as much as 15-years? That would give you the time to look around and make other plans.

But all I see are folks who seem absurdly pleased that they generate their own electricity without ever considering how sustainable it is.

So anyway, please let me know your thoughts.

Introduce Yourself • Howdy All

September 29, 2017 Saxon Violence 0

Friends,
I joined a few weeks ago and got distracted. I do that more frequently as I get older.

I’m retired, 60-years old and drawing disability. I went to school and got an associates in Industrial Maintenance just in time to become unable to work.

I have designed a few guns. I used to believe that I might get to build a few of them, but poverty and ill health make that unlikely. I did some painting and drawing for awhile, but I wasn’t good enough to perfect my skills on my own and I couldn’t afford professional coaching. I’ve written a few novels. I think that I may have made $100 from Amazon Kindle over the last few years. Still working on my 2nd $100.

I have 3-dogs. Hagrid Needleteeth—he’s a 26-pound Rat Terrier mix. Hezekiah Braveheart—he’s also a little dog. He’s a Newfoundland/Australian Shepherd and he’d have to be soaking wet on a good day to weigh 90-pounds. Beauregard Slobberjaw is a 160-pound Bloodhound—he may have a bit of Black & Tan Coonhound in him, since his ears don’t seem quite Bloodhound length. He was a rescue and his last owners weren’t sure exactly what his ethnic heritage was.

I like to talk intelligently about survival and what not, though my physical condition keeps me sitting on the sidelines.

Ah well, I could go on, but I think that’s sufficient..

Snake was just outside the fence, right along the end of the house (I think he was LIVING under it :eek: Shot hi a couple of times with the shotshells, but I think that the shot inside the shells was too small to do much more than distract him and get him to uncoil. Fortunately, Son-in-law heard the shots and came over with the Judge, and put 3 shots of .45 LC into the snake…just about took its head off. At least I don’t have to wory about coming out of the house and getting bitten (or having one of the dogs get bitten) anymore.

Guns • Re: What the 2nd Amendment means

September 28, 2017 3ADScout 0

There is some great case law on this including several recent cases. One of the Supreame Courts best arguments that the second amendement is an “individual” right is that if the court would interpret “the people” in the second amendment to mean the state then “the people” in the first, 9th and 10th would also mean “the state”. They clearly do not, hence the Supreame court has ruled that “the people” is just that “the people” not the state.

There are several good books on the history of the “militia”. Back in the day merchant ships purchased cannons to protect there ships. When one looks at the “militia Act of 1792” it is very clear that citizens were expected to be armed with a suitable weapon of the day. If the arguement is that an AR 15 couldn’t be foreseen by the founders and thus can be rugulated then the same could be argued for computers.

Several years back I was lucky enough to purchase a training manual for the militia (early 1900’s) There were 3 militia camps- Red, White and Blue. One color was for enlisted, one for NCOs and the other for Officers. Very organized.

Sad that we went from a nation at revered our arms to a nation that in many places cowers in fear at the mere sight of a child making a “gun” with his hands/fingers. So sad.

Guns • What the 2nd Amendment means

September 28, 2017 Photon Guy 0

The 2nd Amendment, “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Now, some people like to say that what its saying is that you should have access to weapons only if you’re part of a well regulated militia, another words, only if you’re part of the police or military. So only if you work for the government and if you’ve got a job for the government that involves using weapons should you have access to them. The thing is, that would be absurd. Why would a government have to give itself permission to bear arms? I’ve never known of any government in the world that gives itself to bear arms, and yet all the governments in the world do have weapons. Now, some people like to say that the 2nd amendment doesn’t mean that you can have any weapon for any reason and that would include “military grade weapons.” Citizens should not have access to military grade weapons. Well here’s the problem, when you use terminology such as “military grade,” that can include knives. Infantry soldiers are issued fighting knives and so when you say citizens shouldn’t have access to military grade weapons that could mean such knives. To say citizens shouldn’t be able to get knives just because soldiers use them is absurd. No, if you ask me, and I think this is quite clear, the 2nd Amendment means a citizen should have access to the same weapons an individual soldier would use. Now, some might argue that with that line of reasoning Im saying a citizen should have access to tanks, battleships, nuclear bombs, ect. Well no. Im talking about weapons an individual soldier would use such as a fully automatic or burst fire rifle. An individual soldier does not use a tank, it takes a team to operate a tank. Both battleship and nuclear bombs obviously take lots of people to operate. But any weapon an individual soldier uses and operates by himself a citizen should be able to legally acquire and possess. That is what the 2nd Amendment says.

Back up plan for the EMP. Most likely will be pulled off in unison so if the EMP fails we’re still down & out.

That’s what I’d do strategy wise at least & dh always said I unnerved him with my strategy plans when we played war games ect together. I’ve nothing to base his judgement on, he was the military dude, I just played a lot of strategy games as a kid.

Highly doubt NK has the arsenal to hit 500 targets. Maybe a handful at best. However China & Russia do & China has already stated that should Trump move against NK first they will jump into the game. (which is why I think NK is the front guy for China because anyone can see LFM is literally picking this fight & what normal political repercussions of his threats would cause……it’s odd they would make such a statement due to his behavior)

Maybe I can’t wrap my head around it but I still don’t think there would be more than a handful of targets on the big IF nukes were used, I seriously don’t think NK’s allies want to go that route knowing they’re opening themselves up for a similar response. That’s what kept the Cold War from developing into actual war all these years.

LFM is baiting Trump. Big question is how long can advisors ect keep Trumps ego & temper in check so he doesn’t make that first move? Answer: probably not much longer. Not just because Trump has an ego the size of Manhattan or that he’s narcissistic (most politicians are) but because the longer Trump waits to respond, the weaker it makes him & us as a country look to the world.

The map on this page seems pretty accurate.

The purple triangles indicate big cities, while the black circles are smaller cities and towns, as well as military sites and missile launch sites.

NYC is most likely a primary target. Let’s get serious. Not to mention LA, Washington DC, Chicago……..and that’s just off the top of my head without looking at the map.

I’m within range due to WPAFB…….because it IS a primary target. Not within blast range (unless it misses) but it’s not going to be fun & games either.

That is the map I already have, with 500 primary and 1500 secondary targets, and it was pretty accurate, but is a little out of date. I think they came up with it during the late stages of the cold war (the 70’s or 80’s).

No way could N.Korea, or even China hit anywhere close to 500 targets on our mainland.
They just don’t have the ICBM’s.

Maybe the real strategists today think Crazy Fat Kid is just so unstable his target list could be anything. Or maybe they don’t think he is accurate enough to actually hit anything smaller than the state of TX.

That link has an interesting map. Not what I would expect from Business Insider, it only shows nuclear assets as targets, and even then, I don’t think it gets all of them. OTOH, I went back and looked at the map I have and it shows 500 primary and 1500 secondary targets. Not realistic at all, if the adversary has 6, or even 16, nuclear bombs and wants to deliver them by truck.

Just for discussion, the TV series Jericho named about two dozen cities that they destroyed, or tried to destroy, with nuclear weapons. They got almost everything wrong about the science of what the nuclear weapons would do (notable exception is the vivid description of what radiation poisoning would do to people exposed to too much fallout), but the list of cities is at least interesting.

Code:
Atlanta, Georgia                        Baltimore, Maryland     
Boston, Massachusetts               Charlotte, North Carolina
Chicago, Illinois                         Dallas, Texas

As far as keeping the ammo from condensation, the buckets should work fine. As far as the temperature, as long as the temperature in the buckets doesn’t exceed 130 Fahrenheit or get cold enough to condense moisture in the bucket it will be fine (you might want to add one of those desiccant packs).

As for a reason you might want to use the metal cans instead of the buckets is this: ammo tends to self ignite (cook off) around 270 degrees (or higher), and if there is a fire, the metal cans give a margin of safety that they buckets do not. That, ease of transport, and making it easy for you to remember where your ammo is are the only reasons I can think of.

Ease of transport and ease of storage are good reasons for using the metal cans instead of buckets. Aside from that, metal cans are definitely better for long term storage.

The idea of a nuclear total war does lead to M.A.D., what is scarey is that it appears that the concept of a total war using nuclear weapons isn’t the strategy anymore but a more limited attack on the others nuclear weapons and command and control is the current flavor of the week. When someone with nuclear weapons starts to believe they can win that becomes dangerous, hence why the Cold War was such an arms race.

The question becomes what if one side uses a strategy of limited nuclear war and the other side uses the older total war model and nukes a few large cities? Will the other side respond in kind? I will say that I believe some of the left wing pro soviet communist groups in the west perpetrated the nuclear target maps that included just about everywhere in the US. (Where was the concern of the Democratic Party with Russian influence then??). I can believe that New York isn’t on a first strike target list but to believe/think it isn’t on any list is a fairytale. In short look at a lot of those maps, compare and contrast- make you own conclusions

Texas A.N.T.S. • Re: Panhandle Ants?

September 27, 2017 chrysg 0

I just got my confirmation email and have posted my marker on the map. Looks like I’m the only one at the moment in the region. I’m putting my marker close to home but with my travels I could be pretty much anywhere in TX depending on the day. Mostly I’m Wichita Falls – Abilene – Denver City – to the OK panhandle at least once to twice a month. I’m hoping to get a lot more markers in place for this region.
The people in this region are big on taking care of ourselves and our neighbors/communities and I believe that A.N.T.S could be an excellent resource in doing this.
