Survival Rope Hammock
In my experience paracord doesn't tie well to itself so I don't recommend using it for this purpose. I have one suggestion for both of these methods which I plan on testing soon. I would cut two sticks and put them between the outer ropes at the head and foot of the hammocks to keep them from squishing you with your own weight. What do you think?

Quote: "New York State environmental officials are trying to nip a huge, dangerous plant in the bud. The giant hogweed, a monster plant with flowers the size of umbrellas and sap that causes blisters and blindness, is spreading across New York. The Department of Environmental Conservation is asking for help locating outbreaks. The agency has set up a hotline at 845-256-3111 for people to call and report sightings of the invasive species. Callers are asked to provide photos and site information, but should avoid touching the plant."

Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) has been detected in New Hanover County, and county health officials are reminding residents to take precautions against mosquitoes. That includes using effective insect repellent, installing screens on doors and windows, wearing long-sleeved shirts and pants, and limiting exposure during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes can be most active. Although cases of EEE occurring in humans are rare, it can be a potentially fatal illness – and is almost always in horses. "There is no cure and no vaccine for people available right now, so people need to protect themselves by preventing mosquito bites," stated county Health Director David Rice. EEE was detected in a flock of chickens used by officials to detect the arrival of mosquito-borne diseases into the county.

To those of you who don't know, today is the first day that our son Jesse does not have a daddy. The first day in over 20 years that I do not have my best friend, love and husband.
It is with great sadness that I have to announce that Ron passed away in his sleep last night. Our alarm went off this morning as he set it for 8 am and he just did not wake up.
This is the day we were scheduled to leave for our EOTW gathering in Salmon Idaho. Ron, I and Jesse will not be coming.
I just want to scream from the top of my lungs that I love Ron so much that it hurts and that both Jesse and I have been blessed having him in our lives.
I will write more as I get a chance.
Jesse and I love you so much Ron. You were the best husband, friend, teacher and daddy I could ever imagine having.
-Karen and Jesse Hood

Have you ever wondered if it was possible to really simplify your life without giving away all your possessions, joining the Green Party, or taking up meditation? For too long, the terms "simplicity" or "simple living" have been associated with the far-left granola crowd. Now a practical alternative is available. The Simplicity Primer addresses how to achieve a simple lifestyle from a concrete, conservative, no-nonsense, realistic standpoint. It offers guidelines for family life, finances, the workplace, health, relationships, spiritual life, home, recreational activities, and much more. Imagine how simple your life would be if you were out of debt, had well-behaved kids, and a happy marriage. Imagine what it would be like to have an uncluttered home or a job you love. Imagine how it would be if you were better able to survive and thrive in these increasingly uncertain times. These things are possible, and following even a few of the 365 tips in this book will simplify your life in amazing ways.

Well there is something you can do beyond stocking up on food and supplies.
Cody Lundin among others has said that survival is 90% psychological and 10% gear.
So, prepare with proper training. Here is a link to the red cross training schedule: http://www.redcross.org/en/takeaclass

In the morning our canteens and water bottles were frozen. It would have been a lot faster and more convenient to just put them in the fire to thaw. Instead we had to melt A LOT of snow. Also note, do not try to cook in food grade cans or aluminum. There is a coating on the inside that will melt or burn into your food. Aluminum will sometimes melt on an open fire as well and I'm told it's not good for your brain.
The refrigerator on the left will run off 120V, 12V, or propane.
It seems like an ideal solution for backup insulin storage.

I have recently downloaded a copy of all English articles on wikipedia from: http://download.wikimedia.org
It was a bit tricky and time consuming, but I am very pleased with the results. I got the idea from this article: http://www.survivalblog.com/2010/11/david_in_israel_on_secure_pers.html
