I am a college student that is fairly new to the idea of prepping and survival. Recently I have been considering in creating a "Every Day Carry pack". I am wanting to create one that could fit in my bag pack.
I was thinking something like a small flashlight, granola bars?
Does anyone have any recommendations?
Also if anyone could post links to amazon products that they swear by that will be incredibly helpful. I would love to have a little pouch or bag that would hold most if not all...
Recommendations for Every Day Carry Pack?
One a day
Must be taken by you.
Any subject matter you want.
my Favorite fishing spot.
Not that we had much choice. We were in no position to exploit our victory. We needed time. Time to consolidate and take a breath. Time to gather intelligence so we could be smart and careful about our next steps.
But as I sat in the bush on the hillside overlooking the storage facility where the Kirwan Terrace gang kept all the food and other loot that they had collected, my thoughts turned to Dunkirk and how different things would have been if Germany had kept the...

Patterned after the old mountain men / butcher blades...
Basic high carbon blades... field grade with black and brown canvas micarta... West Systems Flexcoat epoxy, 5/16 brass corby bolts and thick 1/4 brass lanyard tubing...
Thinking of copper riveted leather sheaths for these...

Some Mountain Monkey Blades :0)

I grew up in a generation where peanut butter & jelly or a fluffernutter was lunch. We all grew up healthy and active. Now schools have nutfree classrooms and the cafeterias have special sections for kids who have peanut butter in there...
Emma Grey held a soiled, torn and rank smelling jacket for her husband Phil while he tied his shoes. They kept his “outside clothes” in a trash bag stored in a metal trunk in the corner to contain the foul odor.
Once he was dressed, his wife opened a tin, which contained a mixture of soot and grease, and applied small amounts to Phil’s hair and face while he rubbed some into his hands and finished by wiping some off on to the back of his neck.

Weapons from the basic things around you
There are those on here that have managed it, AA is one of course, he's buzzed out 3 books already and is writing a fourth now I believe.
You can too!
As I was putting the finishing touches to my Mountain Hold book I made a video guide so that you too can perhaps find it easier to get writing:...
How to Write (PAW) Fiction
It will be a surprise, I am sure, to see Book IV of Ark Royal. The ending of Book III didn't leave much room for further adventures with the Old Lady. However, the war might be over, but there’s still work for the Royal Navy.
If this is your first glance at the series, you can download the first three books from Amazon (free samples, as always, are on my sight.) However, you can regard Warspite as a whole new series if you wish; new ship, new characters, new issues for the RN....

Who am I? I have been in the Oil Industry for nearly thirty years. I started when I was 16 years old and have never really done anything else. I currently work in management and am party to many board room discussions about anything that impacts...
Peak Oil- what it is and how it will impact your life
where would one find information on items like Israeli bandages and halo seals and one hand tourniquet, that sort of trauma gear. looking to learn and buy.
A golf cart with treads would make better sense....
For the price of this golf cart, you could just about buy a milsurp tank!
It was the idea of adding fruit and veggies to the diet. I told someone the other day, Yard Dart I think, that I'm 100% carnivore. Gimme the steak, you can...
