Hey everybody. First, I’d like to thank you all for reading SHTFblog.
There are a few things I’d like to mention today, but nothing of major importance (the sky is falling! the sky is falling!) What? It isn’t? We can take a day off from the doom?
First, the spam blocker. If you reply to one of the posts here and it doesn’t show up right away you can either do one of two things:
2.) Email me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll check the spam folder as soon as I get your message.
The reason I say wait is that I usually check the spam folder a few times a day and when I do I release the good comments. It’s a pain wading through the bad comments, but you guys are worth it. On a side note, if you ever want to know where to get the best Viagra or some sneakers, or who knows what, email me and I’ll forward it on.
Honestly, you’d be amazed at the spam we get!
Second, I’ve been looking at military surplus gear online and I’ve got a couple of friends who are willing to go in with me on it. My question to you is if I get some of this equipment would you be interested in seeing it posted online here for sale? I might like to have a couple of extra canteen cups kicking around, but not sure what I’d do with four-hundred. I don’t intend to do this on a regular basis, but if I get a good deal on something I’d be willing to pass it on to you if you’re interested. Right now I’m looking at some sleeping bags (military sleep systems) rated down to -40 F. Other items include anything from canteens and canteen cups to ILBE combat packs.
Before I put gear on here I’ll test it and provide an honest review of it, whatever it may be. I’ve used a lot of gear in my day and I feel qualified to give you a decent review of whatever it is I might find.
Third - Thanks to everybody who de-lurked yesterday! I know there are many more of you out there and it’s really nice to see you guys come out and say hello! I would encourage you to contribute your questions and comments to the blog.
If you have questions ask them as I’m sure other readers out there have the same ones. Comments are welcome any time! We don’t know everything and I’ve learned a lot from you guys telling how you do things, or prep, or store food, or whatever.
So let me know what you think about the surplus gear and sound off with any other ideas.
Thanks again and sound off below!
