Just a short post for now will have a real one up later tonight. Had a great hike today at Long Hunter State park With James and Mike from Skills and Gear. I had intended to do some gear testing but the rain made it a short trip. Two lessons learned though. One replace the paracord on the GHB holding the wool blanket with fast tex buckle strapping. The jostling from hiking kept making it come lose. Second add rain pants. The poncho worked awesome. At keeping my upper body dry while dumping water on my pants.
The Get Home Bag, affectionately know in the survival community as the G.H.B. Because we all love acronyms right? So what is a G.H.B and why should you have one. What goes in it? And why not just carry your Bug out bag? Well I’m going to tell you.
I tried to get a dictionary definition or at least a urban dictionary definition of a GHB anything. All I turned up was forum posts and a few blog’s. Guess this will be another. So I’ll define it for you
A GHB is a bag whose purpose is to be able to get you from one place to another, usually home, with the minimal necessities required.
Well im no Webster but that’s the essence boiled down. Basically it’s a bag/ container carried in your car and possibly on your person at all times. With the exception of in your home. In your home you should have a Bug out bag (BoB) packed and ready to go.
The other day I was online looking for a sturdy metal lunch box and came across a really awesome looking one on Google shopping. For once it actually said there was one in stock nearby!? There is never anything I want nearby. I click on the link and look at the map, it’s located not too far away in a trendy/ yuppy mall. I figure I have some time to kill so I’ll go check it out.
This is the story how I managed to cut my electric bill 74% over this winter. No I did not freeze my balls off. I kinda hate the cold so the idea of sitting around shivering or having to stay bundled up all winter did not appeal to me at all. No I remained nice and toasty all winter long while averaging a monthly electric bill of $55.32.
How To Make Sauerkraut Easily With Free Supplies
I’ve decided to show you How To Make Sauerkraut Easily With Free Supplies. I enjoy having it once a week or so. The store bought stuff is nowhere near as good as a homemade with live culture.
I’ve seen fancy crocks online but at a hundred bucks that way to expensive for me. I used a free icing bucket from Walmart, a two dollar plate, an empty gallon jug and some cheesecloth I had laying around. After some searching, I found a simple process for making kraut.
