    Been working on my GHBs Sleep And Shelter Systems (I affectionately call them SASS's). I opted for a sleeping pad, sleedping bag and a bivy. Picked up a ThermaRest NeoAir Xtherm at and REI garage sale for $20. Found a leak in it, fixed it, and it now works perfect. Found a used Snugpak Stratosphere on fleabay. It arrived Friday and it appears in good shape.

    Woke up this morning to a light drizzle, so I got the Snugpak out, set it up and drug it out onto the deck.

    Set it up inside, zippered it up and drug it out onto the light rain. Will let it set there since there's no wind. I'll go out and move it on occasion so simulate me tossing & turning. Then bring it back inside so I can carefully open it up and not get fooled by water spilling in and thinking it leaks.

    Well, sadly... the Snugpak failed.

    The foot end, below where the zipper stops, had a lot of tiny drops inside. In a constant/heavy overnight rain, this will soak the footbox of any sleeping bag to the point of being deadly. There was also a leak at the head end. Not soaking wet inside, but definitely there was water infiltration. The rain wasn't heavy, or long-lasting. Just a light rain for about 1½ hours.

    Will stop by the store tomorrow and get a bottle of Nixwax. May need to whip up a batch of seam sealer for the hoop end.

    I just added a new article on my website: Systematic Approach To Group Survival.

    Fuel Storage For Cooking

    Also the website INDEX page has been revised to categorize subjects.

    Started organizing and packing what I call my Extended Bub-Out Bags (EBOBs). In keeping with my method of keeping only 'critical' (i.e., useful assets in any emergency) in my BOB and having extra gear readily available to grab n go, I picked up a couple items on the über-cheap. A green, heavy canvas gym-type bag and a light canvas drawstring bag. For former will hold things like my AR-7 extra ammo & mags, extra stove fuel, water bottles, some of my DIY MREs, etc. The blue 'duffel' bag contains extra clothing (pants, underwear, socks, jacket, sweater shirts etc)

    The 30-gallon garbage can is the faraday cage for my BOB. I keep it in the cage due to electronics (tablet, chargers, 3.7v batteries, radio etc) being in the bag.

    The BOB will be the first thing to get taken. If I'm buggin out via vehicle, and weight/bulk is not an issue, then I'll grab these two EBOBs.

    Stopped by the grocery store to stock up on staples. Hit the canned veggie aisle and got 10 cans each of corn, peas & green beans. Generic brand, 50¢ a can....but every bit as good as the national brands. I hope they continue to stock 'em. Half a buck a can means more money left for ammo.
