ano yun advantage ng meron at walang powder coat? and pano yung handles? mostly kasi nakikita ko naka paracord wrap lang or may sawali na nakabalot. hmm mukhang yung blade/steel lang itself ang pinproduce nila. mahal kasi pag may handle scales, tulad ng g10. yung kydex din mahal. hehe

Advantages nung powder coat is protektado yung bakal hindi kakalawangin. Less maintenance. Eto lang ang advantage. Yung edge lang ang walang coat. Drawback lang is nagkaka gasgas sa powder cost but lahat naman ng may coat nagagasgas yung coating, but it will take very long para ma expose ang steel. You can always remove it and have it re coated.

handle is usually made of horn. Yung iba pinapalitan nila mismo ng micarta or kahoy. Paracord yung iba.

meron bang such a thing as ideal places/areas to live in the philippines that won't be too affected by global warming? nabasa ko kasi sa states, denver colorado, north dakota, montana, wyoming  and alaska daw ang best. i wonder kung dito meron din. any opinions?

^almost midwest states yun mga nabanggit mo sir ah. tama ba? usually mga mountanous regions ata yan, lahat naman siguro maapektuhan ng global warming, yung sa ibang lugar nga lang siguro medyo may delay bago maramdaman ang effect dahil na rin sa geographical attributes nun lugar.  ;)

Polar regions nga apektado e. Baka ibig sabihin yung mga safe zones pag may earth changes. Usually people keep their safe zones a secret. Dami na tao sa pinas eh. Actually ang scary ay manila. Pansinin niyo hindi mo matatawid ang manila na wala kang dinadaanan na tulay. Tapos nung apec ang laking abala di ba? So pano pag may nangyari sa manila. Mahirap makalabas kung lahat lalabas ng de kotse. Kung walang kotse paano naman ikaw tatawid kung may mga tulay na bumagsak. Yan mga dapat isipin

its scary to think about this and I dont want to give this possibilty more momentum but I guess at this point this is a big probability with global catastrophes and world leaders at each others throat recently, not to mention Trump to me seems like a ticking time bomb.

I guess prepping is a necessity now talaga. Any suggestions for the emergency bag ? Kelangan ba ng tent kaya and cash? hirap kase pag puro girls sa family and malayo papa namen and my family members are not open to the thought of a 'doomsday'   but when I think of my daughter I know I just need to prepare kahit man lang basic. Ano kaya ang skills na kelangan when things go downhill and we need to go back to mother nature?
Some people are saying we may have an economic collapse in terms of financial system some say environmental naman I think different scenarios may need different preparations.

Hi Sis,

Depende kasi sa paniniwala ng individual. but para sa akin, every pinoy should have some level of preparedness. Mabuti na lang si Duterte with the recent bagyo, napaka efficient nila. And its good na yung admin ni Aquino decided to buy that packaging machine which was put to good use by the current admin.

ako im more of the practical prepper, i prepper for what's most likely to happen to me in my situation and environment.

dito sa amin change of season. kaya maulan. and last sunday, nag karoon ng Thunderstom Asthma. dahil change of season, the daily average of those being rushed to the ER is 300. but last sunday, around 2000. nagkulang ang ambulance. hospitals were forced to open their day facilities. naubusan pa ng ventolin ang city namin. meron pa daw namatay sa kakahintay ng ambulance. mabuti na lang handa ako, 3 ang ventolin ko, plus other meds. maganda talaga ang handa kasi calmado ka sa pag isip ng next steps mo.

parang nung nasa china ako, i was down to may last 2 sets of antibiotics. matagal tagal pa ako mag stay, i was already thinking of my next steps, last resort was to see an international doctor, but was already asking my fellow expats, good thing umabot yung word sa isang hindi ko kilala. she left her stash of meds with me, kasi paalis na siya.  case solved. never ako umabot sa stage na nagpanic.

so for your case sis, you can think about what will most likely happen to you, your area, your family...etc

so yung mga common concerns ay, baha, tubig, pagkain, no electricity, earthquake,

yung isang friend ko, accepted na niya bumabaha sa kanila, so naka set up na ang bahay nila for flooding. may kids sya that need to study, so to cope with brownouts, may powerbanks siya, chargeable by solar panels. so pag brown outs, gumagamit na lang sya ng USB fan and lights.

food, maraming magagaling magluto or natututong mag luto. food preservation din na walang ref ang gamit. yung iba nag sisimula mag gardening. kapag tumubo na ang mga tinanim, nakakatipid sila sa groceries. healthy pa.

yung iba they take it further, for really dangerous scenarios, they plan to go out of the city to their bug out location. kadalasan sa probinsya. so may bug out bag sila, and get home bag, bug out vehicle then the bug out location.

the more skills you can learn the better.... cooking in the field, navigation, radio communications, first aid, mountaineering skills, bushcraft skills, sewing skills, soap making skills dami talaga

yung mga super seryoso at mapera, sila naman nakakatira na off grid. may bunker pa nga lol

i personally believe that pinoys should be practical preppers at the very least. why? pag nagkaroon ng disaster, maraming makakapag share ng gamit. walang magnanakawan. by nature mabait ang pinoy, kung maraming sobra, magbibigayan at magdadamayan ang pinoy.

imho medyo extreme naman mga yun.

start slowly. make an assessment of what you and your family will likely encounter. then slowly work your way. mayaman or mahirap, same lang sila nahihirapan lol kasi they tend to spend naman on expensive stuff. one trick is spending on knowledge and skill so one will have less reliance on gear. speaking of gear, pwede na yung gear na that can do the job and gear that can handle multiple functions.

example

yung iba gagastos ng 35,000 pesos bolo sized knife kasi daw matibay.

 yung iba naman masgusto nila 1500 pesos na local made bolo, na maganda ang tempering at bibili sila ng 10 pcs. tapos bili na lang ng murang pistol with ammo.

so yung 10 pcs na blades, naka kalat yan, sa kotse, sa bahay, sa bag, sa bug out location 1 and 2. so kahit mawala pa yung bolo. ang joke eh, "kahit makarating na ako sa BOL ng nakahubad, at least may tools ako" then may pistol pa. a 35k knife in public will stand out, but not a bolo

on the other hand, barya lang sa iba ang 35k.

Multipurpose Items


yung iba mahilig sa steel army cup. kasi they can cook in it, use it as a cup, boil water, use as a tabo etc.

you can join the preparedness fb forums, get in touch with Momentum dito sa GT so she can add you.

imho mas maganda din to read about real survival stories like those who survived the bosnian war,  how people survive in Venezuelan economic collapse,

magaganda experiences nila.

Hello everyone, I'm not a doomsday prepper per se, but I do believe in being prepared, as I have a one year old daughter. Like many, takot din ako sa The Big One, so I want to be prepared. I attended a disaster preparedness seminar with my baby's yaya (since I work in the office at yaya ang kasama ng baby sa bahay). It was conducted by Red Cross and they were also selling bug out bags, pero I thought I'd make one myself para mas tailor fit sa needs namin.

My question is, mga how much should I budget for ONE bug out bag? Sapat na ba ang 1,500? I know it depends per person and family, pero what's a decent price range? May mararating ba ang 1,500 ko? O baka ni waterproof bag e kulang pa yon?  Hehe. Thanks guys.

sis mas maraming may gusto na gumawa ng sariling bug out bag.

make a list of what you think you will need, you can benchmark your list of needs with the bags being sold.

money is always a concern regardless of social class. rich ones tend to spend on expensive items kasi eh.

but in those with budget constraints get around by being creative.

personally id like my BOB to be light so i can move and run.

the original concept of the BOB, if im not mistaken is to help you "bug out" your way to your Bug Out Location - or your safe haven. if it takes you 3 days to reach that place, you need to put 3 days worth of supplies.

on the BOL you have more supplies, more tools, etc etc

others believe in creating "caches". its like having a cache of your survival supplies scattered in different places.

yung tipong meron ka sa bahay ng kapatid mo, bahay ng pinsan, etc etc depende sa strategy...

para sakaling you have to ditch your bug out bag you can travel with minimal gear / supplies....

ika nga ng friend ko "kahit nakahubad pa akong dumating, may supplies ako that will help me survive."

as for help in a disaster it can range from 3 days upwards...

also, theres also a saying: the more you know about survival, the less you have to carry

Kami naman 70% done with the 'bag', nasa house namin malapit sa pinto. 5 times a week nasa work kami ni hubby, at walang tao sa bahay, I am planning to prepare a separate 'bag' that we can put in the office, so whenever the disaster strikes, meron parin kami madadala. :)

what you can also do is, have a stash or cache at your bug out location (and in other locations) many preparedness peeps operate on redundancy.

the saying here is "kahit nakahubad ka pa pag dating sa BOL or safe location mo, you still have the needed items.

being redundant is costly. hence preppers strice to become practical and purchase items that are good in quality but will not breal the bank. buy hey, if you can easily afford 5 x 70,000peso knives then go for it.  others would instead opt to buy 10 pcs of well forged local blades at 1,500 pesos each and scatter the blades + supplies in diff locations

Upping this thread!

We're almost done with our bug out bags, we just need suggestions for the following:

AM/FM radio (hand cranked, or rechargeable)
Flashlight brand
Multi purpose knife

Yan. My husband has all these fancy equipment but if we buy for everyone in our family, like our parents and in laws and all that, mamumulubi kami, lol.

a good brand for radio would be Eton but there are many others, you just have to search the internet at search prepper groups.

flashlight. madami din brands dyan na magaganda.  like olite, fenix, surefire... there are too many nowadays.  ako im biased towards surefire.

but for me i keep 2 kinds of light. yung normal low lumen flashlight na AA ang batteries

then i have a fliashlight of just 200 lumens.  masyado nang fashion etong mga "tacticool" gadgets. i dont need ultra high lumen power. these lights are like cellphones na. kakainin lang nila pera mo. 

having a tactical light using cr123 is only good for police and soldiers because mission ang sukatan. pero pag emergencies?  i doubt you can have a power tactical light turned on for 4-6 hours straight.  magiinit yun at mag papalit ka madalas ng batteries. kahit rechargeable pa yan. (ive learned the hardway, bad situation and 3 sets of cr123 ko eh halos ubos and my taclight was really hot)  this is why i always keep two. one that is low output and another to serve as a spot light for emergency purposes na hindi prolonged and continuous use. besides, there are times when you dont want your position to be obvious to others in the middle of the night.

as far as blades go, i know many veteran preppers who are way past tacticool and fashionistang prepper. instead of spending $700 dollars on blade with fancy steel na 5-10% lang ang lamang, they spend on good locally made blades.  (hard to sharpen supersteels on riverbed rocks when shtf)

isipin mo at 54 pesos to a US dollar, 700 USD can buy 25 local blades at 1500 pesos. maganda na ang subo nun. then you can scatter the 25 blades. put one in your car, your office, your #1 house, #2 house, mother in law house,  bug out location etc... and you can give them pa to your loved ones

the joke is, kahit makarating ka sa bug out location mo ng hubad, may gear ka pa din

besides,  pag shtf, at makitaan ka na maganda ang gamit. good luck.

My husband prefers Olite, while I prefer Fenix. But I like your suggestion of 2 flashlights. I'll check out the Eton!

My husband has knives and guns pero in his EDC he only has his glock and one knife. Or maybe two. His Wenger and his bolo na di ko alam kung anong tawag. Haha.

most "preppers" have guns, knives, watch, keys, wallet as their EDC.... but honestly that's more on just self defense.

the question is , what are you really preparing for? your edc should reflect what you're preparing for.  Example, in Australia, its quite normal for people to undergo survival training because there many companies have sites in the outback. so some employees drive to those remote sites and kung masiraan sila ng sasakyan. its automatically a survival situtation. same goes for those who commute using helicopters.  those who love nature can also find themselves in a survival situation (ie when they get lost).  so these people have survival kits as part of their edc. companies provide survival kits.  your purpose or mission should dictate what you carry.  and when you carry you gotta have skill. dami nagkakarga ng knife and gun, mahina naman lumaban or hindi magamit ang knife sa survival.  so training is vital

^Tama. That is why sya lang ang may baril at ako wala. Hehe. I do plan on getting myself a multi purpose knife though.

The preparedness groups on FB, are they local groups? Meaning from the Philippines? Or worldwide?

We're prepping for earthquakes, bilang we live on a fault line. After our bug out bags, we're prepping for actual bug in supplies.
