Jesus is God--always has been. But, He "hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed" (Ecclesiastes 5:4). Our marriage vows, or other commitments, already obligate us to provide for our families from day to day, and especially in time of great discontinuity. Isn't some of our gear shown here non-optional?
A- Air: you can live THREE MINUTES WITHOUT AIR
B- Bad Guys: (also called Pirate Preppers)
You may need a 22/22 mag. (2 different cylinders), best if 9″ barrel (“Double Action” if possible) revolver; 100 rds “Hornady Critical Defense” magnum; 100 rds sub-sonic 22; 500 rds “brick” 22 LR (Practice makes this pistol a rifle!)
You buy. We do sell scopes and mounts which you can see on our store page.
Bullet-proof panel (w/shoulder straps; stops .357 magnum and knives; made for UK police; 1 lb.)
USMC tri- fold shovel E-Tool In woodland fabric case; Ames, in fabric case. “The E-Tool” (“Everything tool”). So much more than a shovel...a combat sword! Also a pick, hoe, axe, machete, boatpaddle, grappling hook, zipline, chair, porta-potty, cooking stove... politically correct to carry; after all, “It’s just a shovel!”
C- Climate: … THREE HOURS WITHOUT SHELTER— too hot or too cold for comfort wears one dow
C - Clothing: (Carry in sleeping bag for a quick change of clothes; your clothing is a shelter
Wool watch cap (30% of heat loss at head) or boonie hat—depending on weather (with bug net)
$15.00 large $18.00
2 pair wool socks (wool is proven, especially in boots; one pair dries as you wear the other)
USAF Pilot’s Gloves or USMC Combat Gloves. (Protect those hands.)
BDU pants (special ordered for perfect match; those cargo pockets are super! Military tough fabric)
Sturdy belt, bandana or Arabic “shemagh”; “combat” boots (your feet have to carry BOB),....
D-Drink: … THREE DAYS WITHOUT WATER—drink dirty water, probably live less than 3 days! Over a day without water begins mental confusion, and then quickly drinking without electrolyte/salts added can cause Rehydration Sickness. Water is key; no more than 12 hours without it is your priority goal.
2 Qt. US army canteen: (carry on belt or shoulder. Here’s an idea: Get your water as you find it, perhaps straining out sediment through bandana or shemagh, then purify as needed.)
Stainless steel cup fits in canteen case, has folding handle; can cook in it over a fire, drink out of it and use as a bowl.
$5.00 W/ canteen
2 each 1 gal. collapsible water bladders (with carrying straps; you must be able to carry all the water
you can because you do not find water very often in the desert; can also carry fuel)
3 qt.+ stainless steel pot with fitting lid and 12” stainless steel spoon (pot drilled to hang over fire, especially to boil water; a renowned traveler said, “If I could take only one thing with me from civilization, it would be a cooking pot; I can make most other things, even a knife.”) $45.00 opt
2 each Butane lighters, 10 match books (easy fire for the first month)
7 each MRE electrolyte packets (just water isn’t enough; salt helps also)
E-Eat: … THREE WEEKS WITHOUT FOOD—after 36 hrs without eating, the body just begins to eat itself!
14 each various “Clif ” high calorie/protein bars (light eating stalls the 36 hr “no food” trauma)
1 MRE complete meal (2000 calories; for the first day of your run for life)
10′ snare wire (instructions on snare building in USAF Survival Manual below)
1/2# Himalayan salt (with 90 essential elements missing in modern food; can’t live without salt)
84 essential minerals required by the human body and not found in comon table salt.
-True pink Himalayan salt is one of the best salts you can find.
-Contains all l6 of the electrolytes required for health.
-Probably the best salt for health and survival situations.
(vs common table salt: Heavily processed to eliminate natural minerals.)
Food cards: edible/medicinal wild plants it’s also a deck of playing cards
WILD CARDS® are a great tool to use when you are learning the identification, attributes & uses of Wild Foods. Linda's core 52 wild edible plants are printed in brilliant color and clarity on the backs of the cards. The cards contain the crucial info needed to deal with an unexpected emergency or survival situation in which knowledge of edible wild plants could save your life. In addition to the photo on the back is an inset line drawing of the plant, and a chart showing its natural US & Canadian habitat. On the face is a compact listing of the plant's aliases, its edible parts and characteristics, with notes, uses & hints, and when needed, warnings. There are also traditional card markings so the deck may be used as regular playing cards. There is a hole through the upper corner of the cards by which the deck is fastened together with a ball chain. You will find the majority of these plants in all 50 states, and, indeed, in most of the world. A few are unique to the Eastern or the Western US. WILD CARDS® fit easily in a pocket or pack to go with you camping or hiking. Use them as flashcards to enhance your learning & help you to immediately spot this food in the wild. Soon you will see it everywhere!
