  • Pac Tracks: Still trying to digest Stanford vs. Oregon September 24, 2018
    Two days later it makes more sense. Where else but in Eugene, on Oregon’s campus, 40 years after “Animal House,” should we receive college’s classic reprise of “Over, did you say over?” Let’s make one thing clear: it was over. I  haven’t seen anything more finished since the Atlanta Falcons iced New England in that […]
  • BC: Fool me once, shame on you…Fool me twice… September 24, 2018
    Yes, we bought it.  We saw the numbers and even though they were compiled against less than stellar competition, we projected them to the next level. We saw an All American type running back, we saw a veteran offensive line, we saw a quarterback who had star potential, we saw a defense which made big […]

    Five things we learned about Big Ten football in Week 4 . . . 1, The Badgers are tough enough to keep toughing it out. That shocking loss to BYU wasn’t good. But Wisconsin bounced back well, grinding out a tough win at Iowa in a showdown that has determined the Big Ten West winner […]

Learn how to build a disaster bag | blog at Extremely-Sharp on preparedness

None of us know exactly when disaster will strike or what disaster will come next. Whether it comes as Nuclear war, cialis 40mg
invasion, natural disasters or the zombie apocalypse – there are some basics you need to have ready to go.

Often called WSHTF (when-shit-hits-the-fan) bags or “Bug out Bags” – there are some basics you need to have on hand to have a chance at surviving disastrous situations. Extremely-Sharp is here to help equip you as well as inform you on what you need.

Fire starters light fires quickly and consistently | Get one at Extremely-Sharp

  • Fire Starter – Waterproof matches, lighters and lint are a few basic tools to create a fire. To make life easier, we at Extremely-Sharp.com have Zippo lighters or an Aurora Fire Starter to make preparing your fire simple. 
  • Items to Help Hydration – Staying hydrated is vital for your own survival, but sometimes the water you find may not be the cleanest. Solution: Chlorine Bleach. 2 drops of bleach will purify every 1 quart of water. Don’t have a dropper? Pour the bleach in a cap and place a small strip of tissue in as well with a piece sticking out over the cap. The liquid will wick up through the tissue and drip over into the water. 
  • First aid for minor injuries | First Aid – Personalize your First-Aid kit according to what you need for your body/health. Example, if you suffer from arthritis, pack Aspirin/ Tylenol to help relieve flair ups. Be sure to pack general things to aid in severe or minor cuts and bruises. These inexpensive items will be invaluable when you need them.
  • Tools – Multi-Tools work wonders for you in the most dastardly situations. A Gerber Grappler is great to have for filleting fish and completing small task. Also, a short sword like a Machete is excellent for chopping firewood and for other uses as well. Packing a flashlight wouldn’t hurt either.

Basics in Survival plan include Hand Sanitizer - reason may surprise you. | Blog

  • Hygiene – Bacteria and fungus can accumulate on the body and can cause infections. Wet wipes and hand sanitizers help with keeping clean during Bug Out Situations.
  • Extras – Some other items like a compass, can opener, or even walkie-talkies can enhance your Bug Out Bag. Think outside of the box and leave ideas for others in the comments. 

We have just scratched the surface with this list. ExtremelySharpLife.com will have more informative blogs about survival through the year. We also recommend that you do research on your own.  You don’t just have to have one bag – you can make unique bags for different situations.

Let us know what all you are including in your bag in the comments below.
