The Rule of 3 says:

You can die in:

  1. 3 seconds without security;
  2. 3 minutes without air;
  3. 3 hours without shelter (in hostile weather);
  4. 3 days without water &
  5. 3 weeks without food.

So let's talk about shelter.  Shelter protects you from the weather, the sun, wind, rain, snow, heat, cold, and more.

Shelter might be something as simple as an emergency blanket, sleeping bag, bivy sack, a rain coat, a hat, or even sun tan lotion.  While these help keep you comfortable, they don't protect you from the kind of things that will kill you in 3 hours.... extreme weather... mainly extreme Temperature.  

Warm clothing, fire, a debris shelter, blanket, an Ice Igloo, or Snow Cave help protect you from the cold.  Shade, a hat, sun tan lotion, proper clothing, and water protect you from the heat.

 The key is to think about the risk you might face, and what provisions would be prudent, and be sure you have them available when needed.

Ammo Prices October 2021


Yes, we are seeing improvement in Ammo prices, but they are still high when compared to 2019, and coming down slowly. In a few cases, Academy and Bass ProShops had 50 count boxes, limit 4, available at $10/box less than on-line prices, AND without any shipping cost. My advise on this is to get out to some of the large retail stores, where they will offer you some good deals to get you in their store.

Due to tight supplies, and no ammo being available in certain categories, especially JHP (Jacketed Hollow Point), there were only a few economy brand prices to report, skewing the 2020 JHP price lower than normal when compared to the others.

If you see good 9mm 115g Brass ammo in the $0.30 - $0.38 price range, that is a pretty good deal today, but with prices coming down, I wouldn't buy any more than I'd shoot in the next two months.
