Quote:Anti-inflammatory: Voltarene tablet
I have never taken these. Where do you get them?  and any other info you want to share about them.

Also call Diclofenac Sodium
Diclofenac is a pain reliever in the drug class NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). It is available both over-the-counter and by prescription in the United States. Its common brand names are Voltaren, Cataflam and Zipsor.
Voltaren oral tablets
•For relief of the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis
•For relief of the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis
•For acute or long-term use in the relief of signs and symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis

Voltaren ophthalmic eyedrops
are used to treat pain, inflammation, and light sensitivity after eye surgery or for certain eye conditions.

Voltaren gel is used to treat osteoarthritis of the knees and hands.

I always have Voltaren gel for my husband who is 78 years old just in case.
Myself I prefer to take curcumine with black pepper everyday Wink

I just reloaded my comprehensive SHTF pack. A large Gen 3 Alice frame pack. It is a beast.

It is heavy but definitely manageable. It is good to go through and itemize and prioritize essentials frequently.
I don't have any unnecessary items in it at all.

I can procure everything I need to survive with what is contained in that pack. Enough to provide for a small group. It has taken me decades of researching and study to realize how little I actually know in the grand scheme of things and how much more I have to learn.

I am as prepared as I am likely to ever be.

I still prep and keep an eye out for deals and continue to add real-world skills and practice using them. I have been learning navigation on land and sea and in the air. It is relatively complicated and intense

I added a sweet new DC/AC pump for my portable filtration system. Anything can power it.

I built another PVC hand filter too. I used pex fittings this time too. Very versatile, very portable and I am gettin mid-upper 40s in PPM particulates!

That is clean H20, my fringers...

Here is something I found that was smaller and prettier than what I made (mine is more robust/sturdy) ... Pretty cool DIY demo.

Very good looking unit!

We swap out items with the change of seasons. Summer pack is always lighter but winter is always full. Plus with winter I pack duplicates/ triplicates of some items. It is always good to have extra because you do not want to be without in a snowstorm.

How much does your pack weigh?

60 pounds without water, rifle, ammo, or much food. So, heavy. Enough for a small camp (4 seasons)
That one stays ready for a moment's notice


The Truck will hopefully do the main carrying but, I could huck it on foot or mountain bike if I had to. Or boat.

I have packs and rigs for each individual season that are MUCH lighter... Chuckle

I am a seasoned canoe camper... You can take some luxury items with them! Lots of room. A cooler full of cold goodness!

Lmao

The government will come and confiscate your supplies after TSHTF event to be distributed among those who were too stupid, lazy or ignorant to take care of themselves.

This bad advice. The government doesnt track your food stores...

I have 2 food grain drums filled with 400lbs of rice. It will keep for 10 years.

A few thousand cans of misc foods. And always 2 weeks of other food goods in the house. If there's power I also heave months meat. If I can I'll make it all into jerky if power fails.


I have multiple water systems and storage.

More than enough ammunition.

Multiple bug out locations and multiple routes.

Great stuff Frigg! You are using parts of your brain that people used for centuries. So many skills and so much knowledge that was passed generation to generation has been lost. People have been trained to find the nearest fast food when they are hungry, use gps instead of maps, and ask alexa how to do simple things. Not too mention how many hours a day people look at screens on either tv, phone or computer.

I try to offset the stupid amount of time I spend online... Chuckle

as to the bolded...

...remember the old adage, "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it"


I learn from history... I devour it like food... Knowledge is strength and chance favors the prepared mind. I try to actually learn from their mistakes. Prepping 101 Chapter 1.

I can't stress it enough.

People survived... by passing it on. Never forget that.

No "smart device" could ever replace the STORY... stories.... history....record...generations of combined WISDOM. NOT technology.

It is bad when your smart devices make you dumb.

Dumb is EASY to roll right over... Nothing to it.



Be prepared (scout's motto)

Think for yourself

...tell the person next to you ..You Love Them.
