Rubber Bullets

Rubber Bullets

Rubber bullets are used by police forces all around the globe – they are a way of stopping a perpetrator cold in their tracks and not kill them. I recommend that the first two bullets, in your gun, be rubber bullets for the following reasons: 1) If a bad guy gets your gun and shoots you then you know the first two bullets are non-lethal to you and can act accordingly. 2) Do you really want to kill a person or … Read entire article »

Base-Camp Gun

Base-Camp Gun

  I’ve looked at hundreds of rifles, shotguns, and handguns and found one that is a perfect match for a Hi-Tech survival situation – the Smith & Wesson Governor with a factory installed Crimson Trace Laser installed. You can buy it from Cabela’s. It’s a 6-shot revolver that shoots 410 shotgun shells, .45 Long Colt, and .45 ACP bullets. Basically it’s a sawed-off … Read entire article »

3-Season Tents

3-Season Tents

90% of all tents are 3-season tents, Spring, Summer, Fall, with some taking on winter but not snow and showing 3.5 seasons. The 3-season tent is your standard 3 layers of construction: 1) Top layer is the rain fly 2) Middle layer is the support structure holding up the tent 3) Inner layer is the tent itself Since there is so much competition for 3-season tents the … Read entire article »

4-Season Tents

4-Season Tents

If it gets below 40 degrees F at night any day of the year where you live then you need a 4-season tent, if not a 3-season tent is just fine for you. The 4-season tent looks just like a 3-season tent except the no-see-em mesh walls are smaller or can be blocked with tent flaps. Also, the support structure is … Read entire article »

Tents

Tents

Sleeping away from base-camp requires a tent or a “bivy” – a combination tent/sleeping bag. There are thousands of tents and bivys on the market and I’ve reviewed most of them and you need to understand hi-tech tents so you can easily eliminate 99% of them. The biggest problem a tent/bivy faces is your breath – not bad breath but the water … Read entire article »

Portable Propane Heater

Portable Propane Heater

If someone gets sick, at base-camp, they may have to be isolated in another room – that room may have to be heated. Or, if an away-team is gone and the temperature drops below 45 degrees F they need heat in their tent that night. I like this small heater since it can run all night on one propane tank. It … Read entire article »

Main Propane Heater

Main Propane Heater

Heating the entire house with a propane heater is out of the question and not a great idea. I’m assuming that a 400 sq ft (20 ft by 20 ft) room is large enough to allow everyone to sleep and work during the day and can be heated by one propane heater. If you have a larger group then you … Read entire article »

Heating Base-Camp

Heating Base-Camp

If your basement, or room you use for base-camp, can get below 45 degrees F, anytime of the year, then you need to heat base-camp. I wish there was a way to use a wood stove to heat but the fumes will kill you and your family. There are three viable fuels that make sense to heat base-camp 1) Propane, 2) … Read entire article »

Evaporative Air Conditioning

Evaporative Air Conditioning

If the regional electrical grid is down, so is normal Air Conditioning (A/C) in your home. Your normal A/C works on a closed freon system that compresses freon gas into liquid and then that liquid boils in the heat exchanger part of your furnace to cool your home about 40 degrees colder than the outside air. Nothing is added to this closed system … Read entire article »

12 Volt Refrigerators/Freezers

12 Volt Refrigerators/Freezers

12 Volt Refrigerators/Freezers are mini versions of your kitchen refrigerators that run from 12-Volt power supplies like the cigarette lighter in your car or from your electrical grid at base-camp. These freezers/refrigerators can make ice to use on an injury or add some excitement to drinks. I view these expensive items as icing on the cake, for Gold or Platinum Kit … Read entire article »
