Poison Ivy / Oak Soap

Poison Ivy / Oak SoapPoison Ivy / Oak Soap

There are plenty of folk-remedies for poison ivy / oak but this is a tried-and-true method for very quick relief. We keep a few bars around the house and in our vehicle kits. This special soap removes the Urushiol, which is the invisible oil from these plants that causes rash and itching. The active ingredient is Jewelweed which is able to release and remove the oil from your skin. You can use immediately after exposure for the best results but the soap can be used as an effective treatment anytime, even if rash occurs. This is an example of a product for which there are few other solutions that work so well.

Available for $2.99 plus shipping from Amazon
And here is another brand too.




Defender 308 Body Armor

Defender 308 Body ArmorDefender 308 Body Armor

This is a very affordable soft body armor solution and it is Made In USA. The Defender series from US Palm offers a variety of models but we prefer the Defender 308 which provides pouches for three (3) .308 magazines and three (3) pistol magazines. The Defender provides level IIIA protection in an easy-to-use package. While the base unit only provides front panels, you can purchase a soft rear panel and the Defender also works as a plate carrier too. For the price there is almost nothing like the Defender series which offers a practical entry-level package for everyone. There is no excuse to not have body armor with kit like this available!

Available only direct from US Palm for $199.99 plus shipping

Legit discussion of a rarely shared issue – how do we find and share with others?

Prepper News Excerpt:

I know that not all women are like this, but hell, where are the intelligent girls that work out, know how to grow their own food, and would rather do something constructive toward the future, rather than self-medicate with consumer culture?
