It's been a while since I have posted on here so I will post what I did in the last few months. Added an AR and a Shockwave to the arsenal and took them out to the range, added more preps like TP, batteries, water, bought a generator, did an ammo inventory and most importantly, I moved out of California.

How loud is the Shockwave? Online it says significantly reduced noise but the pellet is still breaking the sound barrier so is it really that quiet?

Not a big enough difference for me to notice but I was more concerned with what the kick would be like. In case anyone cares, it's not bad at all. My Mossberg 500 with a regular pistol grip (not the birds head) is more painful.

I bought all terrain tires for my 4Runner so we can escape via off-road. Ok, not really, mostly mall-crawling from Starbucks to In & Out to Whole Foods.

Seriously though, the AT tires are a direct result of all of the flooding in SoCal and the fires up here in NorCal. My regular all-seasons on my truck would not cut it if we had to traverse even the mildest of dirt/mud/snow/sand. We wound up getting Falken AT3W's from tirebuyer.com with a 5% discount, free shipping + 4.5% ebates. Not a bad day. And, I just got notification that the tires were already delivered?! I just ordered it earlier this morning. WOW!

Been outfitting a shed we have with a small version of our preps.. if house is destroyed, or damaged so bad that we have to dig through it to get to our main supplies we have a months worth of basic stuff (including big tent) in the shed. Didn't want all of my eggs in one basket

Been buying small solar lights and charging options.

Installed one of those doorbell cameras, bought 4 more 5 gal jugs of water, some Lysol cans, Clorox wipes and paper plates. I also bought a couple of indoor cameras and solar security lights that I need to install.

Can you elaborate with #10?

I'm torn on whether to add a 2-5k water tank and count on an engine showing up to do the pumping or build a smaller pumper unit on a trailer. I cant afford a big enough pump and enough hose to pump from a stationary location (big tank)

Not today but lately I have secured more ammo and re did labels on the cans
as to pistol, rifle rnds etc. Acquired vairous knives and firestarter gear, and weekly add to my canned food stash a few cans at a time. Added work gloves
to my out of doors gear, dirty or scratched hands are always a pain and risk
of infection.

Long time since I posted. Hope all is well with everyone back in CA!

Since my last time visiting Calguns I've made a few acquisitions:
  • Snugpack jungle blanket for my truck kit.
  • Just backed the Emberlit guys 'Pocket Super Shelter' on Kickstarter which I think is really neat.
  • Recharged all my batteries, rotated the gas in my cans and ran my genny and chainsaws which haven't gotten any use since I moved to TX.
  • Reorganized the truck GHB and rotated the water in it.
  • Planning some camping trips to test out some additional gear I've been acquiring bit by bit.
  • Starting to look into buying a home so I can get some big ticket preps I want like large water storage, wood stove, etc. Things you don't want to move.
  • In the market for a new truck as well (well new-used truck, I don't buy brand new off the lot).
  • Many other minor purchases.
  • EDIT: a new 9mm pistol plus some ammo!
  • EDIT: Also started doing some 2 gun competitions.

My bad; I used bic as a generic term for disposable lighter. I got 25 generic disposable lighters for 7.99.

Ordered better sights for my 1911.

Washed a set of G.I. "H" style load bearing suspenders and pawed through the other 1960's web gear to complete a three day or less load out.

I do all the cooking as I enjoy it. Like you all, I stockpile essentials like water, hard wheat, #10 cans of dried beans, rice, meat, vegetables and fruit supplemented with stores of canned foods of the type we eat regularly.

Don't forget your spices and essential side items such as yeast, lots of salt, sugar, baking soda and powder, etc.

Spices can be stored in the pint sized mylar bags with O2 absorbers. I just sealed up a run of cumin, basil, oregano, chili powder, garlic powder, dried onions, etc.

Food can be awful bland without seasoning.

EDIT: Also stopped by local LDS Cannery and dropped $150 on food items in #10 cans with 30 year shelf life. Got a water bottle with built in filter for my wifes' get home bag she keeps in her car. Good prepping day.

Is this the water bottle the LDS store is promoting? I saw the flyer for it when I was in the LDS cannery a few weeks ago and it looked interesting.

Added another 2 gallons of Gossner whole milk, another 2lbs of instant potatoes, and refilled some 1lb propane canisters. Apartment prepping is small scale.

I am in a townhome. They are going on a small 10x10 patio in some dead space behind a small bench. I am planning to build a box around then with the same siding material as the wall to make it blend in and look like part of the building. That should keep the HOA clueless.

Bought two 14 day mountain house food kits on eBay for a net cost of about $385. (I don't know if this is a great deal, but if interested use the app, the current 15% eBay bucks offer, and find the seller who offers 5% off when you buy two). Seemed like the Best deal on mountain house I could find (for this quantity) better than Costco or Amazon.

Now, about that water storage...

I usually buy the buckets when I can, just for storage and protection purposes mostly. Mountain House is the best tasting stuff IMO, good enough to even make for a meal from time to time. WISE is horrible... I have a few bucket of that garbage, I hope I never get to the point where I actually have to eat it.

Ebay is a good source for a lot of things, in fact silver is sometimes cheaper there than anywhere else.

Went through all of my Cansolidators and inspected each can for damage and reorganized by date. Ended up throwing out six cans that looked suspect. Also got rid of all the evaporated milk - switched to shelf stable Gossner milk a while back - and adjusted the Cansolidators to hold regular sized cans of whole potatoes and black beans where the evaporated milk used to live.

More apartment prepping today. I moved the BOB to the bedroom closet which freed up some space in the hallway closet. I built two more shelves to hold more mason jars of dehydrated foods and shelf-stable milk, with storage for various stove fuels underneath. Next up is looking for, or building, a new coffee table that can conceal nine more Aquatainers - currently only have four stashed in a little closet in the dining area. That would put me at 91 gallons instead of only 28.

I read and try to learn something new, or expand my knowledge on useful subjects, every day.

Not really prep, but function: Got a new tablet that supports the 5 GHZ bands of 802.11N (after 2 tablet purchases [but they were cheap, so not terrible] of 802.11N tablets, only to understand that 802.11N doesn't require the 5GHZ band to be called 802.11N), so I can have no 2.4 GHZ interference (only 3 channels on 2.4 GHZ, which is a LOT of interference) when tethering and reading Calguns at work on my tablet. This will also help in hotels when traveling with not having to tether on one of those 3 freq-ranges during times iPhruity devices users saturate bandwidth with Jersey Shore, or Dancing with the Stars.

Ordered the ‘Hydroheat Flameless Tumbler’ for our Bug-out and Range Bags.

For situations that I’d want to heat up water/meals in the field or on the road, but couldn’t use open flame.

The latest flameless heating system, like the Hydroheat, sounds interesting to me.
