Preparedness is like insurance. Each person feels they need what they need as they become aware of risk. Often important and simple things are overlooked. Creative ideas can and should be shared to benefit "Free America." So here is your chance to help America and your neighbor stay free. Chime in - keep it short by trying to keep it to no more than 3 helpful hints and 2 links to preparedness archive type things. Here are my 3: One important tool to keep on hand in either the Bug-Out kit or defensive inventory is a good running chainsaw. Beyond wood collection they are the fastest way to create a roadblock in treed areas. Designated road block locations in tactical line of site have been used for centuries in Guerrilla warfare. Firearms are critical but so are the proper holsters ... especially in Urban environments. Lastly Don't forget Chitosan ... the super clotting agent in the super expensive combat bandages. (Quick Clot) I bought several bottles of the same ingredient "Chitosan" with Vitamin C as a dietary supplement. Comes in about 1/8 the price but you have to make your own bandages. Easiest is to slice open a feminine heavy bleeding pad and pour some inside the thin liner side of it. Wala ! Instant super flow field dressing ! A soldiers best friend. What can you ad to help?
