    safety comes in many different forms and fashions in the prepers world. I would like to know besides your normal first aid kit and knowledge of dangerous things to eat/drink what are some of the good old fashioned safety briefs that one would need to survive?

    For my contribution I will leave this.
    Firearms safety 101:
    #1: every firearm is loaded or should be treated as such!

    Good assumption, lonewolf. That is why I have been teaching my 2 boys since they were little (tracking skills was a big one for them at an early age). Now they are grown. One son will go with me and explore for a few days. The other sun is married and in the Air Force and doesn't get the chance. I'm not sure if he would really like to do that.

    I have been "people watching" for over 30 years, and I have come to the conclusion most of the (modern) population are stupid.

    80% of folks panic. To overcome this the military, lawenforcement and emergency services drill skill sets. When peaple panic they tend to fall back on their training. Training like this is parishible, so once and done dose not apply.
    As to safty advice, slow and steady. If you get hurt you are screwed, and very well may screw your companions. When a fire fighter gets hurt, every one shifts to recusing him/her. For police and military peaple put themselves in harms way to pull your @$$ out of the fire. Solo, your ability to feed, hydrate and maintain core temp may be severely compromised. So go slow, think and evaluate your situation. Yes a hog may be a lot of meat, but armed only with your Rambo knife is it worth the risk?

    I meant at the end of one's life.
    having a saga written about oneself isn't a bad way to be remembered.

    No, not at all. But one has to have "friends" to sing them.

    maybe.
    i'm very comfortable on my own.
    I don't understand people these days, the things they do are just crazy, stupid and sometimes downright dangerous.
    give me the woods and fields and no people anytime.

    I know, but unfortunately their are times we need them. Especially when the "stupid" folks come around.
    We no longer live in a world where stupidity is fatal, they live to breed, coupled with the use of birth control by the intelligent we are devolving.

    From a rescue point of view, the most important person in a rescue is ME. I can not become a victim when trying to rescue someone else. It is hard for some to get that mindset. It's even harder when they become a victim and we have 2 to take care of now. Before going into rescue, your planning has to be ingrained and you think about it before jumping in. I think Charles said to slowdown. There may be some times when speed is of the essence.

    Short story: We were in a rescue situation where a guy went into a tunnel and then couldn't go further, nor come back. He had panicked and was hyperventilating which was expanding his chest. I was first to him. I could tell he was panicked and I tried to calm him. Then tried to pull him out with no luck. The next thing I did was to tell him how bad it was and he would probably die in there. He hyperventilated until he passed out. Then he started breathing right, the chest back to normal size, and we pulled him out.

    In training, I would yell who is the most important person in here. The correct answer at the top of your voice was "ME!!!"

    Slowing down is more about your thinking, not hesitating. Work with a purpose but don't leave any "I's" in dotted or "T's" incrossed.

    I lived in a city for 43 years, I have no reason and no inclination to ever go there again.
    my life now is rural and will remain so for the rest of my life.
    I have very little to do with other people, I prefer animals to people, WTSHTF i'm more likely to take in a stray dog than I would a stray person:D

    Yes for the last two decades I have witnessed "STUPID" develop into a full blown "PANDEMIC" !

    And it knows no bounds, it is literally everywhere now, way past critical mass and fully self sustaining!
    Only possible outcome is self destruction same as a cancer!

    And preppers/survivalists are not immune! most are just as stupid as the sheeple! lots more delusional though!

    To the admin! is it possible to get a scenario development section?
