Re: Sutures!

I would be careful using ductape to support splints for broken bones as fractures tend to cause swelling and ductape isn't known to stretch much, as a result, you could have some issues with blood circulation being cut off. if you splint properly the ductape should only barely touch the body part a...

Re: Sutures!

great post. I think a lot of preppers are underprepared for the medical side of things(myself included). It is hard to find supplies in larger quantities to store. Smaller packages I find to be very expensive for what they are. just a side note, duck tape makes for a great suture in a pinch as well ...

Re: Water in B.O.B.'s

For me this is a tough subject, I am a firm believer of having 1.5 litres of water in my BOB and 2 other water purifying options. the tough part for me is that unless you train to carry a 20-50 lb backpack it doesnt matter what you have in it as you will not be carrying it far. I went on a hike with...

Re: Prepping in an Apartment

for water I would look at the largest containers that I can store and seal made from a food grade HDPE(high density poly ethylene). Fill them up and store them somewhere cool. The funny thing about water is that a lot of people say you need to rotate it but if you have a way of purifying it you can ...

Re: Getting People to Listen?

Now your kits getting up to my size somewhat as I have jumper cables and many more tools too. I think Old School was making something a bit smaller. On another note, that tire sealer has let me down as it indeed freezes and won't fill anything in any below zero weather....beware! I now have a small...

Re: Getting People to Listen?

this is a great idea. I travel a lot and I have a kit in my car which was made from my own pesonal experiances travelling. I would add to knuckles list some rope, non perashable food that can be easily opened and eaten (freeze dried or mre style), quick tire foam sealer, tire pump, gloves, road flar...
