  Being ready, even at work... a lesson
Posted by: ric0123 - 10-02-2015, 03:36 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (11)

Hey all. I've been around GTSP for a long, long time.  I post occasionally there, or used to

Anyway, I've been a prepper a long time.  I always have gear with me, even at work. I have a maxpedition jumbo pocket organizer which I keep at my desk full of some basics.  I used to rarely travel for work.

I'm now at a job where I'm on the road to the next city over about once a week.  (We don't overnight, just day trips).  I had an 'oh sheet' moment yesterday while we were on the road. (I had just read about Russia doing air strikes in Syria, but that's another topic)..  I was thinking: Well what if Russia and the USA get into a pissing match and they launch nukes, right now.  (not entirely implausible).  I realized that I had left my maxpedtion bag at the office and I had only very limited things with me in my briefcase.  My car is loaded down with gear, but we were in my bosses car.  I have to say, it made me a little nervous.

I'm currently thinking and re planning for things to stay IN my briefcase at all times, and also trying to remember to grab my Jumbo if I have to take a road trip.

No real point to this post, just putting a reminder out there for people that travel for work (and not in their own vehicles). I'd really not want to get caught with my pants down if the ball drops because I forgot to grab gear with me before I left the office.

There does become that fine line, that trade off between weight and bulk, particularly when it's just an afternoon trip with just a briefcase.  It forces you to really think about the critical core things. I don't CCW.. I tend to think as long as I have a flashlight and a pocket knife (which I ALWAYS do) then I'm set, but it does get a lot deeper than that.

So anyway, food for thought

  Read Chuck Norris Died
Posted by: Tsquare - 09-26-2015, 03:44 PM - Forum: The Pub - Replies (1)

Earlier this week I read that Chuck Norris died. The good news is that he got better.

Apparently this was a hoax that went viral.

Thumbs Up SEP Gathering #10
Posted by: David - 09-24-2015, 12:30 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (30)

Okay folks, we're getting back into the season of the SEP Gatherings Smile

This will be the 10th outing and I'm pumped!  Our target date is November 6-8 (Friday-Sun).  Our target location is Serenova Tract:

Serenova Tract

Serenova Tract is over 6500sq acres and backs up to J.B. Starkey Wilderness which is another 8000sq acres.  Just in Serenova Tract there are 18 miles of trails.  Fishing is on the agenda (Shane caught a beautiful Rainbow Trout last year).  Historical/archeological sites are also along some of the trails.

We are looking at getting the same primitive site as last year.  This is somewhat unique in that the primitive sites are not far away from where you park your vehicle so it will offer the fun of a primitive site while having access to your vehicle if you want a few extra luxuries.  Figured that was a nice way to kick off the season.

The site itself is huge and there is room for dozens of people.  And this is one of the sites that has an extra large fire ring. 

We'll plan on being there Friday afternoon and leave Sunday morning.  Come for one or both days as your schedule allows. 

This year I'm looking to bring the sling shot and maybe the pellet rifle for plinking and target practice and of course the fishing poles. 

If you can make it, give a shout out here in the thread.

Exclamation Scenario #3 - inconvenient to worse case
Posted by: David - 09-23-2015, 01:19 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (13)

Scenario One - Inconvenient:

Your at work. A situation occurs such as a power outage or perhaps a storm. Nothing life threatening but it looks like you'll maybe have to spend the night where you work because either the lights aren't working or it's just too risky getting out on the road. Cell service is still operable and the family is safe at home. What's your plan?

Scenario Two - Starting to kinda suck:

Same situation as above but it's a Friday and it looks like whatever services you need to get home are going to be slow going over the weekend (i.e. restoring roads and/or lights to serviceable conditions). Maybe you'll get out tomorrow or maybe Sunday. Family is safe at home and you still have cell service but the land lines are currently down. Of course your cell phone doesn't have enough juice for a whole weekend trapped at work and electricity currently is out. What's your plan?

Scenario Three - Worse Case:

The situation is severe. Could be a bad storm that threatens the whole area. Could be wide spread grid-down. Either way there is panic in the streets. You've seen looters and shots have been fired in the distance. Electricity and cell service aren't working at all. You hope you're family has all made it home and are safe with whatever game plan you've prepared ahead of time...but you can't verify it from your present location. What's your plan.

As with other scenarios I've created a general situation but left some/many details nebulous so that you can fill in particulars for your situation/game plan.
