Yeah,..Mine learned not to over pack 2 years ago when we took 15 days worth of clothes for an 8 day cruise! not to Mention Cameras, The Laptop,..Battery Charger, Batteries,......I didn't have the iPad then but she had hers.....Was also "pre-iPhone" for us, so we just turned the dumb phones off...

Mine has gotten better since my injury. I had no problem cowboying her enormous luggage bags. But now that it's left up to her to carry the bags they are magically getting lighter. Of course when I'm done with therapy I intend to hit the gym like a monster. We'll see if that changes when I'm the one carrying the bag again.

What did somebody forget to engage their safety and shoot the dogs front teeth out? Or are we blaming that on the Glock shooters?

Delta,

If you want to experience SHTF, WROL, and TEOTWAWKI all rolled into one, try explaining to the wife that there's no more TP. No amount of guns and ammunition will help and woe to the man who thinks otherwise.

Better have a "high clip assault roll", as our libtard friends would put it, handy JIC.

My wife gives me dirty looks when I ever so subtly imply that it might not be necessary for one woman to have fifty (I'm not even close to kidding and it is quite possibly more than that- I stopped counting around 40) bottles of shampoo.

Day 1 is gonna be an experience to say the least.

ROFLOL!

She can make her own shampoo actually. We keep a stock of essential oils on hand and other bulk basic cleaners etc. we already make our own laundry detergent, baby wipes, dish washing soap and fabric softener. Shampoo would just be adding another thing to her plate.

I'd bet she'd start her base with kefir and coconut oil. I'll have to suggest it to her.

A couple of my buddies keep spare bolt carrier assemblies for thier AR15s.

But yes, springs would also be my guess as well.
