    Sorry to bother you LG1, but I can't seem to register at Practical Preparedness. It has refused my email addresses at gmail and yahoo. Is there some away to contact one of the administrators without logging in? When I try to register again it refuses my email address as already in use.

    Read your posting on being tired and being effective. I absolutely agree. I walked out of Afghanistan some 35 years ago through the Khyber Pass with my late wife - and I had serious intestinal problems. That is a long way from watching Rambo in a movie theater, eating popcorn and watching movie actors give each other high fives. I vowed that I would continue training my whole life - and I have. When you are into day 3 of a mantracking class or a sniper class and have been out sleeping on the ground, you gain a good understanding of your limitations and that of equipment.

    It is one thing to watch a movie like Red Dawn. It is another matter to be sick, dirty, cold, wondering when you will have your next meal, watching out for someone else and looking ahead to danger.

    Thanks longgun, always wise advice. as a side question, do you know of any only shops that sell food in #10 cans? I don't have any LDS Cannery's near me.

    He longgun, I noticed in one of the preparedness threads you mentioned you'd written an article on your ammo Philosophy, you provided a link but it seems it was broken. I'd really like to read it If it's available somewhere.

    Quick question,

    What 2 way radio that is at least 5 watt, picks up A&B shortwave and doesn't have a GPS would you recommend?

    I looked at the Yaesu, it was perfect,,,,well until I saw that the GPS can not be turned off.

    Keep your powder dry bro,

    Saw this... thought of you. Of course, you probably have seventeen of them already... but I seem to recall you having a fondness for SBR 10/22s and Chargers.

    I'm looking for a suggestion on some large capacity sealed deep cycle batteries. I know you love the sams club 6v, but I want something sealed (going to be on a trailer). I've seen optima blue top but I think they are overpriced for the capacity. I"m leaning towards marathon or something solar related so I can get a good DOD. Thoughts? Looking for something around 100ah

    http://www.ccrane.com/radios/shortwa...cradio-sw.aspx is showing it uses either 4 "D" or 4 "AA". The 4 "D" are normally approx 10,000 ma/h each & the 4 "AA" are normally around 2,000-2,700 ma/h capacity each. So approx 40 a/h at 1.2 vdc or 10 a/h at 4.8 vdc for the "D" cells & 10 a/h at 1.2 vdc or 2.5 a/h at 4.8 vdc for the "AA". Regardless of battery configuration.. about 50 w/h needed for charging the "D"....& 12 w/h for the "AA". Problem is the solar panels you listed are 17.5 vdc...well above the voltage needed for your application. You could get a dc-dc converter..but most are power hogs. Personally, if I were doing this...I would pack 8 or more of the 2,000 mah AA Sanyo Eneloops (which I do use now) mainly because of the low self-discharge...& 2 of these lightweight, portable, foldable PV to AA chargers. http://www.technooutlet.com/cw34674.html?source=GGAN
    By using 2, it would cut the charging time in full sun to just over 3 hours.

    BTW, are you coming to Will's NFA Shoot in Ark the 1st weekend in June?

    Hope this helps,
    LG1 :cool:

    I have something I would love to get your feedback on. I just ordered the CCRANE SW,AM etc radio and adaptors for a solar recharge. I would love to get a 5w or 10w panel to use for this, but I am not sure if these are too small to charge it in a reasonable time frame.

    Please advise,
