Bee Keeping Is A Skill That I Would Like To Master

They say that the bees are dying off.  They won't die if I purchase this beekeeping kit.  In my hometown I had notice that someone had a beehive sitting in the middle of their yard.

I think if everyone did their part then things would go back in balance.  You could become a part of the Survivalist Nation  I plan to have a beekeeping set up on my land.  I can have fresh honey and my fruit trees and plants would appreciate this also.

The kit that I have in mind on purchasing is the
 Bee Hive - 8 Frame Deluxe Beehive Starter Kit.

The things that stand out to me are
  • Has everything you need to get started
  • Is great for your community to have
  • You can add other hives if needed
  • Other frames are 10 this is 8 frames
They say this kit has a lot of parts and takes a while to assemble and to make sure you have the household common tools.  I don't mind.  I just don't want to have it put together all half-ass.  I would rather take my time and have it done right.

I will be living off the land and I can't wait until I make this purchase.  I just found out in my city that some people have them on roofs.  I think that is so neat.  I would love to have this kit at my bug out shelter.  You could save a lot of money if you shopped around and bought each item that comes with the kit but it would take you a lot of time and that is something I don't have a lot.  If you are in the market for a bee keeping kit than check it out.

What Do You Have On Your Bug Out Bag Checklist?

What Do You Have On Your Bug Out Bag Checklist?   If you could only take 10 items with you what would it be.
What you gonna put in your bug out bag?

The Basics That You Need!
Now you have seven more items to add in you bag to make sure you can live for the next few weeks.  Well here are my other items I would add into my bug out bag.  Do you think that building a bug out bag is easy?  You need to come up with a bug out list and really study on how to make and pack the bag.  I would rather have some things in the bag then none at all.

This is just a sample of my list.  No persons list is perfect.  If you want to join a membership for survival here is an option to choose from.  I have  been searching around and this looks like something I would try.  Check it out and let me know what you think of the Ultimate Survival Plan Membership!

I want this Hatchet.  If  I had this I would be chopping everything down.  If I was in the woods and I saw   Jason or Freddy Krueger they can get the business.   If you like the review the get one at Amazon.

Picking The Correct Bag To Bug Out With

What If you had to bug out and leave your home right this instan?  What bag would you use as your bug out bag?  You have so many options to choose from.  Some bags have frames on them,  some bags have a water bladder in it so you can store your water right on your bag.  I like some of the new bags that have solar panels on them.   They can recharge your kindle, phone and ipad.

I am not sure on what kind of bag I would choose to bug out with.  I think I would use a black bag instead of a camo green one.  I just think black looks better and still can be used in stealth situations.  The bag should be able to hold a lot of items.  Your survival will be depending on that.  What good is a bug out bag if you can't really hold anything int it.  You might as well just carry some Walmart bags to carry your stuff and hope for the best

This bag has a lot of great reviews Condor Compact Assault Pack

Just fill it with your bug out bag goodies and get the hell outta dodge.  If you are unsure on how to make a bug out bag then you can order Bug Out Bag Essentials!  It has helped me make a bag and learn how to make a bug out bag checklist that every family needs.  When I first made my own bag, I had it filled with stuff that was just unnecessary and was making my bag to heavy.

Your Bug Out Bag Should Have a Leatherman 831426 Wingman Multi-Tool

Your Bug Out Bag Should Have a Leatherman 831426 Wingman Multi-Tool.  This is a great addition to add to your bug out bag checklist.  The reviews for this multi-tool are amazing.  This is a great tool to get for a young kid or someone who is just starting out.

This mufti-tool comes with the basics.  You have a knife, scissors that are spring loaded.  The knife is sharp.  What I look for in a mufti tool is if it has a  phillips and and a flat screwdriver, a bottle opener, and last but not least you need a pair of wire cutters so you can get your MacGyver On.  If you don't know who MacGyver is then check out the tv show on dvd at Amazon.  In the first episode he had a multi-tool that he used on the show.I

I love the pocket clip that comes with it.  The quality for this Leatherman is outstanding. and it is made in the USA.  This a great starter multi-tool to have on hand in case you have to get in your bug out vehicle and bug the hell out.  On your next camping trip or bug out practice section make sure you have the Leatherman 831426 Wingman Multi-Tool on your bug out bag checklist.

  • Bottle Opener
  • Spring loaded scissors
  • Excellent pliers
  • Very Great Price 

  • Hard to find the large knife blade
  • pocket clip makes the tool feel bulky ( I like and want the pocket clip)
  • knife blade seems a little thin

This is a great Multi-Tool and is great for a starter.  Check out other Leathermans that you may like

Camping Meals That You Can Add To Your Bug Out Bag Checklist

Camping Meals That You Can Add To Your Bug Out Bag Checklist.  You can add lots of 'meals to your bug out bag.  When you make a bug out bag make sure you have the basics.  Water, Food, and Shelter.  This is very important.  I can't stress enough.

I have had lots of MRE's (Meals Ready To Eat)  They are all a great food sources that you can add to you bag.  You can catch lots of auctions on eBay or check  Imagine you have been walking all day and then it is time for you to rest.  You are starving like a foreign hostage. What are you going to eat.  Well you could start by adding hot water to your Wise Company Grab and Go Meal Packet.

I don't know what kind of meals other people would have in their bug out bag, but I know I would have lots of good meals in mine.  I had a chance to taste The chili macaroni at a gun and knife show.  It was really good.  I love that the meals are easy to prepare.  All you need to do is get 4 cups of water and bring it to a boil add in the contents of the meal package and then stir it well.  Do you know how to start a fire?  What I do is turn of the heat, cover it and let the meal stand for about 14 minutes.   During this time I will stir it also.  Take the cover off and let it cool down for about 3 or 4 mins and then you have a great meal that give you protein to survive another day.

 Who said camping meals won't come in handy on your bug out bag checklist.  The entrees come in different  recipes.  Savory Stroganoff,  Creamy Ala King and Rice, Cheesy Lasagna, Creamy Pasta and Vegetable Rotini, Pasta Alfredo,  Teriyaki and Rice and My favorite Chili Macaroni. The say these meals can last 25 years if they are stored correctly.  This Bucket of Meals can last an adult for 1 month and 4 adults for a week.  Next time your looking for some meals to add to your get home bag the check out some items.
