Post Apocalyptic Larpers Unite!!

So I thought I would post this, I am looking to start a Post Apocalyptic larping group. It would by no means only be about Fallout of Mad Mad, though both are very much welcome!!! To join just follow the link and join the forum. This is all new so bear with me, but I think we could all have a lot of fun doing this. And maybe just maybe, I can get some of the people that are interested in the group to start prepping!!!

Next Monday, 7 Billion people

So next monday there is projected to be 7 billion people on Earth. 7 billion mothers to feed and give water, 7 billion backs to cloth, 7 billion voices to be heard. I read in National Geographic that the entire worlds population would fit inside LA city as long as ever inch is used. We are already stretching the world to its makes with 6 billion, and now there is gonna be another billion of us. If we keep it up like this, I don't see civilization lasting all that much longer. I hope everyone is prepping for when civilization breaths it's last, because it can't be that far away.

Wasteland Weekend 2010 pictures

I thought I would post this as I am going next year with Fear over at Cosy Catastrophe. When I go next year I'll be sure to take my own pictures for the blog, and if we ever are able to start a PA roleplaying group I'll post pictures from that to!!

My Kindle Survival books

As the title say's, I have a Kindle and I have survival books on it. I thought I would share with you all what I have and if I think they are any good.
1. 98.6 Degrees: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive
2.US Army Ranger Handbook
4.When All Hell Breaks Loose
5.Bug Out
6.Doom Survival Guide

I plan to get some more so if you know of some that I should look into then tell me in the comments. I have read 1,4, and 5 so far and I recommend that everyone else take a look at them. Bug Out is the one that should get and read first, it goes into detail about regions, gear, as well as a bunch of other things. 1 and 4 are both written by Cody Lundin(you may have seen him on Dual Survival)  and work off of each other so by both. His style is going to be different from other survival books because he is a bit of a hippy and will start talking about your state of mind and such. Right now I have almost finished 98.6 Degrees, check my twitter page for what I give it when I'm done.

Spread the Word!!!


No really, it would be a big help for the blog if people would pass links to the blog along. We are always looking to get people into the Post Apocalyptic genre, as well as into prepping for disasters and catastrophes. Vault 72 should be back home in a week, so hopefully he can get back to posting again useful info. And I of course will keep posting things that could contribute to a "SHTF" scenario as well as anything I find that is Post Apocalyptic related. So I hope everyone takes the time to pass a link to the blog around, either on facebook, twitter, a blog, or what have you.

North Korea gripped by Famine

Follow the link for more info. If this keeps up NK may get restless and start eying it's neighbors just to keep it's people alive.

Diaster Preparedness for Horse Owners

This is from the California Department of Food and Agriculture Animal Health and Food Safety Services. 
PLAN AHEAD: Determine the best place for animal confinement in case of disaster. Find alternate water sources in case power is lost and pumps are not working or have a hand pump installed. You should have a minimum of three days feed and water in hand.

EVACUATION: Decide where to take your horse's if evacuation is necessary. Contact fairgrounds, equestrian centers, and private farms/stables about their policies and ability to take horses temporarily in and emergency. Have several sites in mind. Familiarize yourself with several evacuation routes to your destination.

IDENTIFICATION: This is critical! Photograph, identify, and inventory your horses. Permanent identification such as tattoos, brands, etched hooves, or microchips are best.  Temporary identification, such as tags on halters, neck bands, and duct tape with permanent writing will also work. Include your name and phone number. Keep identification information with you to verify ownership. (Breed registration papers may already have this information.)

MEDICAL RECORDS AND VACCINATIONS: Your horses need to have current vaccinations. Keep medical histories and record special dosing instructions, allergies, and dietary requirements Write down contact information for you veterinarian.

VEHICLES: Keep trailers and vans well-maintained, full of gas, and ready to move at all times. Be sure your animals will load. If you don't have your own vehicles, make arrangements with local companies or neighbors before disaster strikes.

Listen to the Emergency Alert System(EAS) on the TV or radio.

Evacuate your horses early, if possible, to ensure their safety and ease your stress.

Take all vaccination and medical records, the Emergency disaster kit, and enough hay and water for three days.

Call your destination to make sure the site is still available.

Use roads not in use for human evacuation when you transport your horses to the sheltering site.

If you must leave your animals, leave them in the preselected area appropriate for disaster type. Leave enough hay for 48 to 72 hours. Do not rely on automatic watering systems. Power may be lost.


Check fences to be sure they are instinct. Check pastures and fences for sharp objects that could injure horses. Be aware of downed power lines, fallen trees, and debris. Familiar scents and landmarks may be changed, and animals can easily become confused and lost.

If you find someone else's animal, isolate it from your animals until it is returned to its owner or can be examined by a veterinarian. Always use caution when approaching and handling strange or frightened horses.

If you've lost and animal, contact veterinarians, humane societies, stables, surrounding farms, and other facilities. Listen to the EAS for groups that may be accepting lost animals.

Check with your veterinarion for information about possible diseases outbreaks.

I hope this helps people as it took a while to copy from the booklet.
