Yarrow can be used fresh/crushed and applied as a poultice on a wound or laceration. You can also dry it and crush it into a powder for future use. Yarrow also facilitates healing and new tissue growth in damaged tissues (Vulnerara). Yarrow is even a bit of an antiseptic and even slightly antibiotic by nature and can be applied directly to a wound green Even in history Achilles had his troops carry yarrow with them into battle to stop their wounds from bleeding. How cool is that?

|Tactical Sammich from CMMG|
When the Apocalypse does happen (oh, and it will), whatever tasks you find yourself taking on in said apocalypse (whether it be fighting zombies, setting trip wires and other security measures, creating reinforcing shelter or cleaning your guns)... all of this stuff is hard work and you are going to get hungry. And you aren't always going to be "feelin'" like busting out the old wheat grinder and grinding yourself some flour to bake some bread, etc., etc, just to make a quick sandwich. What a hassle, right?
The Apocalypse may be "challenging" at times, but who says it has to be downright inconvenient? Introducing the Tactical Sammich from CMMG (also the makers of Tactical Bacon). With the Tactical Sammich you have all the benefits of a quick and convenient sandwich but add to that the self life of 2 years!
How about some pics? Maybe a video? You got it:
The Last Of Us coming to stores in early 2013 (hopefully)
The Last Of Us!The Last Of Us is an upcoming post-apocalyptic third-person survival action-adventure game being developed by Naughty Dog for the PlayStation 3. The player will play as the character Joel, a "ruthless survivor" trying to navigate he and his 14-year-old companion Ellie to safety through hordes of infected and other hostiles. Sounds awesome!
No official release date has been given at this time, but from the sound of it an early 2013 release date seems likely.
Check out some pics!
|THE MAXPEDITION SITKA GEARSLINGER|
One of our absolute FAVORITE packs for every day carry is the Maxpedition Sitka Gearslinger. It is so well designed, so versatile, well made, comfortable, durable, pockets everywhere, so much attention to detail... it is awesome. The thing we love the VERY most about it is the Gearslinger design that allows you to wear it like a backpack and then when you need something out of it you can swing the pack around to your font side quickly and easily and all of the zippered pockets are all facing up right in front of you for easy access! Genius! It even has a fantastic semi-hidden pocket Velcro lined for a holster for conceal carry. It is slick! Secondary strap uses a buckle with a whistle built right into it!

Like the idea but need a bigger pack? No problem! Check out the Maxpedition Kodiak Gearslinger here!

|THE BAHCO LAPLANDER FOLDING SAW|
|DIY recycling and roofing for beer drinkers!|
Then about 15 years later we catch up with our main characters yet again living in a "village" of sorts in a post-apocalyptic world ruled by bandits and militias where only the most innovative and badass survive. OK, not bad... right?
So perhaps I've got a few things wrong in my interpretation of this first episode, but only time will tell and there are already plenty of questions that we are going to need J.J. Abrams and friends to answer for us. The most obvious question being... what the hell happened? Who turned out the lights and... how? Of course waiting for J.J. Abrams to answer to this question will more than likely take longer than it took for Ross and Rachel to get together. Any Lost fans out there??
Even more puzzling than that for me, however (again, from my initial impression only) is from watching ads for the show before it aired I got the impression that something like an EMP went off and shut everything down... but that doesn't appear to be the case because the effects appear to be far more widespread and devastating than what any EMP could accomplish.
So... the second question that I have is... how did this "phenomenon" turn off ALL "modern" technology? From what I could tell, this was not just a classic example of "grid shut down" that many of us know is absolutely possible (where utilities are shut down and/or supply issues cause fuel shortages). No, this is a far more "science-fictiony" type of grid crash. The catastrophe in REVOLUTION seems to be something that has caused even basic combustion engines (with no circuitry to speak of) not to work... even if they are fueled. At least... that's what I took from this first episode. If that is indeed what is going on in REVOLUTION... that doesn't seem very realistic at all to me... but I am going to reserve judgement until I have more information.
On a purely entertainment value, the show is "OK" for now. The storyline and acting are not particularly sophisticated... but it is network broadcasting. I guess I was just hoping for something a little more interesting, but maybe I need to give it more of a chance? I think I will.
What do you all think? Please leave your comments!

|SURVIVAL FISHING AND E2S POCKET FISHING KIT!|
Many survival enthusiasts are a bit intimidated by the prospect of relying on fishing to feed their family in a survival situation. They think that fishing is too difficult, too unpredictable, or unreliable to consider a viable option as a consistent food source. We at E2S could not disagree more. If you understand a few basic concepts about fish and fishing, fishing can be an extremely viable way to meet your nutritional needs in a survival scenario...

|HAUL FIREWOOD WITH A WEB STRAP!|
HAUL FIREWOOD WITH A WEB STRAP!
How many times have you tried carrying an arm load of sticks back to your camp fire only to drop them, scratch yourself, give yourself a splinter, etc.? How about this for an idea? Lay your sticks across a web strap like an NRS strap, then cinch the strap around the firewood to carry it with more control!
Different take on a previously posted idea. How genius is this? Take the drinking straw, heat up your multi-tool or needle nose pliers over a flame, then seal off the end of your drinking straw. Cut straw about 1/2" to 3/4" long, fill with Neosporin about 1/4" from the end, reheat your pliers and melt the other end of your straw. Tiny sealed packet of Neosporin for your purse, EDC, desk drawer, etc.
UVPaqlite(U-V- Pack- Light) is designed to be a night light in a dark environment like a bedroom, bathroom, tent, or shelter ALL night long. Intentionally packaged in a vacuum sealed bag the UVPaqlite is light weight, easy to carry, waterproof, and ready to take anywhere. The crystals inside the bag are what makes the UVPaqlite glow and it's also what makes the light reusable. After being exposed to any other type of light: sunlight, LED lights, Flashlights, blacklights, etc. the UVPaqlites will glow as a night light all night long. And you can keep recharging them again and again forever. To get the maximum effect of the UVPaqlite be sure your eyes are adjusted to the dark. This is your backup light source every night forever!
