The Weekly Tactical Touch-Point: Cheap Hennessy Hammock Edition
The main thing that stood out this week related to preparedness for me is the great deals one can find online. Two-days ago I just purchased a practically new Hennessy Hammock (Explorer Deluxe A-SYM) which normally goes for $200 for only $70. It belonged to this guy’s son who ended up only using it once on a boyscout campout. Sufficient to say, since he’s no longer into boyscouts and isn’t interested in camping, I got a killer deal.
As I wrote about in Yard Sale Survival, you can find great deals on preparedness items by looking through the classifieds (such as craigslist) and yard sales. So check them out!
Here are some interesting things I discovered and read on the web this week:
- Emergency Exits: Getting to a Safe Place in an Emergency – Lisa (the survival mom) lays out a great summary of how to prepare for an emergency evacuation…and beat the crowds!
- Man survives 300 days with knife, pig – An interesting read about a swiss guy that spent 300 days in a planned survival expedition on a remote island — Tom Hanks eat your heart out! I look forward to the upcoming documentary.
- Five days, then rescue – A news article about a 52-year old woman’s 5-day ordeal of survival in the Colorado wilderness. Man, this woman’s got heart!
- Nuclear War Survival Skills (free online book) – A free online book on everything related to nuclear fallout survival. Interesting read and very thorough.
- PFAF.org – For those interested in learning about the uses of wild plants, this site is a great resource. It has a huge database of plants (over 7000) tells where they grow, if they’re edible or medicinal as well as other uses.
