Rotated all my fuel (gasoline) stock. It became an expensive day as the gas cans I had -plastic ones the caps had cracked and the fuel was evaporating. I had to buy new ones also plastic but much better design and thicker plastic. I live in Ca. so my gas can choices are limited. Thanks CARB! I had to get rid of 4 cans as no longer serviceable and purchased 7 and then had to fill those. The old gas went into my truck, but paying for 35 gallons of new gas hurt a bit. But with what is going on over in the middle east I like knowing I have some spare fuel. And yes I treated it all with STABIL.

Yep, I live in CA. Not much choice in gasoline containers. I fill with high octane. I keep track in the computer when the gasoline is rotated. Every 9 Keep track in the computer. High octane. No stabilizers used. Go early, early am as other drivers/smokers are quite dangerous when you have to refill some containers and carry them in your car.

Now, I belong to Costco and it opens at 6 am. Will now be cheaper and quicker.

Organized ammo storage with fresh labels on the ammo cans. Traded my Rock Island 1911 which while I liked it, it didn't have a real philosophy of use for my preps. I traded for a Ruger SR22 which is my first .22 handgun which means I can shoot cheaper and more importantly teach my kids with in the future.
Now I just gotta stock up on 22!


The gun I traded is in my avatar btw

Unless it's illegal to own these in California, I would consider ordering these - they are the best cans for the money today IMHO. I use a jiggle siphon to transfer the fuel from them to my vehicle or other containers when I need it. I'll never own another CARP (deliberate mispell) plastic piece of garbage again.

I never heard of a jiggle siphon until your post. I just remember being a kid and having to "enjoy" the taste of gas. Thanks...I just purchased a couple of them. Should make fuel transfer much less aggravating.

another idea ive seen for fuel transfer is to use an electric inline fuel pump and wire the leads to battery clips. couple lengths of rubber fuel line for inlet and outlet and you can get decent flow.

also works out as a possible spare part for your BOV if you get one that will work for it as well.

Spent the last few weeks stumbling around noob-like in the molle world, piecing my revised ghb pack together on the new platform. Learned a lot and coming to actually like molle after years of avoiding it, but it's taken a while to find pieces that are "really" what I want, rather than what's most-often encountered.

Actually have found three different carriers that work well for 15-round M1 carbine magazines, which was a happy ending to the most time-intensive aspect of the search. Two of them were originally intended for other purposes, and one specifically made for them.

Also tried & tested a new small integral solar charger & battery pack, with disappointing results.

Other than that, just more of the same.

I don't have any MICH helmets... but I have 2 PASGT's painted black to be stealthy and tactical when the world ends. Hate to have the zombies see my shiny head of hair and come get me when I can hide it under a helmet, right?

I initially was going to go PASGT but I heard they were less comfy, unbalanced, and the visor got in the way. SUPER cheap though and just as good protection-wise.

I paid $60 each for the PASGT on Ebay and bought a leather headband which clips to the inside webbing which makes it very stable on your head, coupled with the chin strap.

I have 2 pairs of Bolle goggles and they work just fine with the PASGT.

Now if I can only tell my coworkers to stop looking at me weird when I wear my helmet and business suit.

Bought 4 Gen 4 G19's and am selling off my mix of .40 and 9mm Glocks so that I have 100% magazine capacity. Glocks, ARs, Keltecs, 10/22s, all share common mags so no mistakes and a short learning curve under stress.

A plus here is that I sold about $600 worth of .40 Ammo on the classifieds last night... might not have asked enough I guess.

I started the Couch to 5k (C25k) program this week. Iíve been walking 5.5 miles a day at a 4.5 mph pace for a few months and decided to see if I could actually run. So far so good.

I had a meeting with our local CERT administrator with the fire department to come up with a plan to increase the members of our neighborhood team.

Started studying for the HAM test.

Bought some FAK supplies, a wrist watch for the bob and of course more ammo.

Thanks for the tip. I assume they can be used for gasoline and there is nothing special about them being labeled for diesel?

just an observation

I monitor the ebay websites that resell used, TSA confiscated items like leathermen, corkscrews, scissors. The prices have been jumping in the last couple of months. I give leathermen as gifts to relatives and friends rather than fruit cakes, neckties, dress belts and other boring stuff.
