With the crap that’s going down these days, I’ve been thinking I need to get a little more serious about my prepping. I’m WAY behind the curve. I would like to look into some milsurp stuff to see what I could get my hands on that might be useful. There aren’t a lot of options around here for local shopping so I wondered if anyone has a line on a good, reputable online store that deals in surplus gear.
Also curious whether milsurp is priced about the same as regular civilian options, cheaper or more expensive. I figure prices have had to increase with the growing popularity of prepping over the last 15-20 years but not sure how drastic it is. (And of course, shipping is outrageous now as well.)
Anyhow, if anyone has any valuable info to share on this, I would greatly appreciate it!
Surplus is not what it used to be, I have one local but the prices are not what I remember them to be, that said whenever I speak with the owner he is always shipping something somewhere that surprises me, people do find a way
I’m traveling in a place with very little kosher food. It’s putting the importance of food in a new perspective, teaching me what the bare basics are that I need to survive. I’m having to get creative with boiling eggs in hotel coffee makers, seeing how much I can use local vegetables on the move, and understanding that rolling weight in my suitcase is preferable to keeping it in my backpack.
It’s like a gentle intro to prepping and foraging.
