SHTF GENERAL:HANDY GRAPHIC EDITION Strelok 09/08/2020 (Tue) 18:50:36 No.5569
2 months before the election. US is on emp, coup, internet blackout, power blackout watch for the next 6 months. Imagine that some or most of this applies to Europe and Austrailia/NZ as well. Best of luck on your preps, don't neglect your networking.
>>11405 Absolutely jack shit is going to happen. >Chinese invasion Chinese love Biden. >Coup by Trump With who? The military leadership is pro-Biden and enlistment are the biggest welfare whores on the planet/aren't going to give up their benefits rattling sabers. >Coup by Biden He already has Secret Service on his side. The only thing of any value you said was: >bad things are coming. But that's been true for some time regardless of who was in office.
>>11411 >Absolutely jack shit is going to happen. Screencapped.
How do I find people to network with, without sounding like a total crazy person and risk them calling the cops on me?
>>11492 it all depends on what your goals are. if it's something like mutual defense, start observing and researching your neighbors. Search the internet for social media profiles, criminal records, political and business associations, ect.. Older neighbors can give you good intel on the others; help them bag leaves or shovel snow. I've gotten a lot of mileage out of Christmas cards too. Once you build a rapport with the worthwhile neighbors you can ease into sensitive topics of discussion and planning. even if it doesn't pan out, who wants to shoot the nice guy who helps old people and sends cards? Less likely to dime you out too.
Just got my backpack. The inside material is kinda cheap - only some kind of foam with thin nylon stuff. Hope it won't tear that quickly. The outside fabric is surprisingly thick canvas. The backpack has plenty of outside pockets to put all sorts of things in. As you can see on the pictures it has no sort of stabilization unfortunately. Those german mattresses suggested are not really long enough for the 60cm high backpack and I already have a mattress, so that would be unnecessary weight. Any idea what to put inside of there to make the backpack more stable? Still don't know what to do with it. I'm retarded and autistic. Have no experience whatsoever with hiking and shit. If I were to go to the next highest mountain range I would have no clue where to sleep and stuff. I mean I have a tent and also got this water boiler so could live on instant ramen or something. If you have any suggestions, feel free to share.

>>11704 >If you have any suggestions, feel free to share. Looks kinda small, but definitely big enough for a one day hike. Check if can you fit your tent and sleeping bag inside or attach it on the outside. You should also have a sleeping mat to put under your sleeping bag. You should carry a spare set of dry clothes or socks at least. Take enough water, a knife, lighter, flashlight, some bandages. Ramen kinda takes too much space, instead take canned meat, instant coffee or tea, cigarettes, candy. Dress according to weather and don't kill yourself.

>>11713 >Looks kinda small it's 70L... Looks pretty huge for me. Maybe it comes off small on the pictures. >Check if can you fit your tent and sleeping bag inside or attach it on the outside It has those clips for attaching things to it but it could also fit inside - couldn't fit much else inside then though.

>>11705 He should probably be in the east asian general
>>11705 >are you still here you mong Yes. I lurk the riots/ pajeetening threads. >how do I know this isn't a gay op? I'll translate that picture here >>11717 >maintenance instructions its more like an advertisment lol >We are glad that you purchased Chaoyue shoulder backpack premium product, the product is of excellent quality, stitching is silky (feel), quality is of best available, the product is made to be resistant and (anti) slip, color vibrant, with its specialty of high construction and natural (weave), and will not easily gain mold, when using this please refrain from being close to high heat, high water (rain), humidity, heavy weight (pressure), abrasions, tearing, microbial (exposure), and chemicals, (untranslatable shit about how wearing it is confortable), the surface skin uses high tech clearner fucking dish soap construction to be washed, and then used a layer of polishing to form another layer, finally store in a cool and dark place. Yes. That is one large run on piece of shit sentence, yes, thats technically, technically, correct in Chinese. No the person who wrote it has no literary skill and is a hack.
>>11720 Oh. Thank you mr. chinaman. Guess that's a much better translation than what first pic says still no clue what it means though (that it won't withstand shit?) >>11717
>>11726 It doesn't translate well.. It's supposed to tell what the fuck this product is good at. with the legal disclaimer like most medications that doing X may shorten its life fuck you faggot, I'm a burger born and raised, I just decided to actually learn history to avoid repeating it.
>>11727 >fuck you faggot, I'm a burger born and raised whatever you say chinaman

>>11732 I think this candle holder would go well with your porcelain.
>>5569 I have a ham radio license, but should I buy a CB radio as well? If SHTF, I would imagine more people would use CB because it is more easily availiable
>>11732 It wasn't directed at you. >no brewing tray >no scent cup >no covered cups 0/10 would not visit again jokes aside its pretty decent and this isn't china. I suggest you grab a pair of metal stainless tongs

>>11847 It's just a cheap portable set that fits well in the backpack, was the first gaiwan I bought also. I don't use it anymore because I have fallen deeper into the tea rabbit hole. Already got small tea tray, several gaiwans and a yixing pot. But it's worth the taste definitely.

>>5569 >US is on emp, coup, internet blackout, power blackout watch for the next 6 months. >coup Kek, just re-read your OP text again. Apparently the preparations for that little contingency failed and the coup d'├ętat was undertaken quite successfully. Thanks again for the thread OP.
>>12758 You've misunderstood. Of the listed events, a coup is the one we got. This will inevitably lead to the violence, infratructure failure and social order breakdown that the contents of this thread are meant to prepare you for. The only way in which the value of this thread has changed, is that using this knowledge to survive is no longer a matter of "if", but rather "when."
>>12804 >Of the listed events, a coup is the one we got. Yes, that was exactly my point >...and the coup d'├ętat was undertaken quite successfully. And thank you and everyone for this thread. The Bolshevik usurpation of the legal, Constitutional authority of the United States is happening right now, quite obviously to everyone whether left or right. This plainly isn't going to happen the way the globalist elites had planned, because just as obviously, this isn't 1917 Russia. Mr. Bones wild ride is just leaving the platform now.
>>11762 If SHTF, who would ask you for a licence?
>>12808 > If SHTF, who would ask you for a licence? Everyone else who does (or did when the FCC still existed if S really HTF) have one. HAM radio operators are assigned callsigns with their licenses. That's how HAM callsigns are unique.
>>11491 >>11405 eh, wasn't entirely wrong, but off by 14 days
>>5569 >op's graphic >tac scorpion gear FUUUUUCK NO! That shit is NOT nij rated, and cannot pass laboratory testing. M193 and M855 alike out of a 20" barrel zip right through it. It's way too thin, and it's a clear case of "too good to be true". Only time I'd wear that shit is if I was some min wage security guard and needed pistol protection, which it probably affords (spall is still going to rip you up though so even then a surplus soft vest is still probably better). Spend a little more for RMA, an actually NIJ rated and lab tested plate. Their Level IV Ceramics are top notch for the price range, NIJ rated (meaning QC you can trust your life to), and $135 per plate. They have a cheaper, non NIJ rated but still independent lab tested steel plates that protect from most 5.56 threats and cost $75 per plate. Don't cheap out on this shit, armor is already a tradeoff between mobility and protection and if you go with garbage like Tac Scorp or AR500 you aren't even getting the protection and still weighing yourself down
Do you have a comfy place innawoods somewhere streloks? If not, why not?
>>14336 >maps for ants Thankfully he's created a zoomable version of the data. https://mapsbynik.com/maps/census0pop/
The best SHTF defense is a working community that's off-grid before SHTF.
>>14353 Seems like a reasonable position except for one small point: I can't think of a single one. Even the Amish aren't 'off-grid' today.
>>14339 its a good recourse but not entirely accurate. for example the entirety of FT Knox is listed as unpopulated blocks. probably not the ideal place for stomping around and doing autistic innawoods shit.
>>14411 Yeah the situation on the ground will always be the most important deciding factor. For example, the boundary zone surrounding LAX in the cap I posted is 'empty' but hardly suited to a /comfy/ innawoods experience.
>>6881 Armor bit needs a change or at least a clarification. LAPG lvl 4 armor only weighs as much due to using a foam ring on the outer edge so for example a 10x12 plate is more like an 8x10 leaving parts of your lungs unprotected. A better choice would be the admittedly heavier (7ish # per plate) HESCO 4401 or the 210 series usually found for ~300$ for 2 plates but sales are common bringing them to 260-270 regularly. The performance of the LAPG is pretty good but it's too small for actual coverage for average people and while it would cover a smaller framed person well now you have to deal with the size making them a turtle. I know it blows the budget for a poorfag guide but the armor bit is arguably more important than a cheap baofeng and old ebay helmet especially if your SHTF concerns are defending your house, neighborhood, or family store. >but what if jogger head shots you I've got no real argument besides head shot probability vs your torso and joggers love dracos these days so ot wouldn't matter if that's what they used.

>>10628 >Finally, if you get the chance read the english translation of Zuozhuan and Spring and Autumn Chronicles, it gives a lot of insight into where the US is fucking headed tbh. Just if anyone else is interested, I searched for the title mentioned by our resident Chinese strelok and found a translation, though I haven't read it yet: https://libgen.rs/book/index.php?md5=836BB3D4ADAB7EB0B16F3E7DEF9D59C1
