Hello,

By way of introduction, my name is Karl, but my friends and family call me KarlOS. I have no idea why, I'm not Spanish...

I am a 16 year veteran, combat experienced, and have been around the world (twice). I am a former door gunner, SAR member and SERE trained. But, don't thank me for my service, I'm not dead... yet.

I am a student of history and law, and have been for a very long time. I won't talk politics, but civics and the Constitution are fair game.

I'm a BIG fan of DIY emergency preps. I built my own backpack (modified Hellcat); created my own lightweight, compact 30+ day food supply; made my own maps and invented the stove(s) I carry in my B.O.B., among many other things. Make what you need so you can buy better gear, I always say. I built my B.O.B. for the long-term. Everything in it was chosen based upon my own specific criteria, multi-function being only one of them.

I like to spend as much time as I can in the great outdoors, high up in the mountains-far above the clouds (to steal a really cool phrase). I test everything before I "bug-out" and then use my gear as intended (o.k., abuse may be a better term).

My priorities are: fire, water, shelter, food, first aid. Of course, your priorities may differ. If I see a better idea, I'll try it. If I think I have a better idea, I'll tell you about it.

That's it for now. C'ya in the forums.

k.

LUV your sig! But, why hang 'em? One term in prison... for life.
Remember, we are the ones who pay the cost of the life time incarceration and after we hang 'em, we provide a shovel ready project.

Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of "Escape From New York", but in D.C. Build a fence, lock the gate, arm the wall, etc... Whenever you need target practice...
