Thanks! I will definitely clean them out first and then add some colloidal silver to the water. I don’t use laundry soap or fabric softner… I use 2 really strong magnets and it cleans my clothes really well. And they are just as soft as ever without any residue from soap or softners. And for cleaning, I simply use vinegar & water for most everything.
Ian, my dear, if you’re reading this you must think I’ve abandoned you. The crash knocked you out cold and nothing I did could wake you up. I didn’t want to leave you but I have to go find help. The Cult’s watching the roads but I think there’s a way up by the falls. There’s no way I can carry the lockbox, but I got the key with me so those fuckers can’t open it. Don’t worry. I’ll be back soon. Love always, Ted.

The uses for duct tape seem to be endless and can be applied, literally, across all types of people, jobs, and cultures. It would take volumes of space to put all of the ideas and uses for this incredibly versatile product! When it comes to using it around the house or for preparedness and survival …
This knife is by far one of the best products on this site! It is unbelievably sturdy, and holds an edge once you put it on. The blade is wicked, and the saw blade does its job. ( I built a shelter in 15 minutes with all the saplings I sawed with it). The sheath is heavy duty plastic, and will surpass your expectations. There is not a time when I do not have this thing on me when I’m outdoors. A trusty companion, at truly a remarkable price. If you are reading this review, I urge you to take out your credit card, and add this fine piece of steel to your bugout bag, camping pack, or collection!!
When I have the budget, time, and resources to deal with repackaging, I buy larger items at Sam’s. As of this posting, a 50lb bag of rice is less than $8, same with a 25lb bag of flour. 4lb boxes of salt are >$1. 10lb bags of sugar >$4. A 4lb bucket of ground chicken bouillon is >$10. Various boxes with 6ct -1 lb bags of pasta >$6. 25lb bag of Pinto beans are about $15. Canned meats run $10-15/per package of cans – chicken, tuna, salmon, SPAM. Again, since most of the canned packs (excluding chicken) are even numbers, split them up if you don’t have the space or budget. While $20 may seem like a lot to spend on just canned meats, splitting that 6 pack of SPAM and 10 cans of tuna with someone else means you each have 8 meats to pair with pasta, rice, etc.. without breaking the bank. In the grand scheme of things, that equals 1 week + a day of dinner meals providing you don’t have to tighten the belt ration wise. For my family of four, that breaks down to >$1.00/serving each night figuring I also have cans & jars of sauces (Alfredo, spaghetti, four cheese, etc.) stocked in the pantry.
You’ll soon come to another barrier with a path leading off to your left – turn this corner and destroy the barrier you find. The next hall is full of Addicts; you’ll need to put them down before you can proceed.

Here are the latest items and commentary on current economics news, market trends, stocks, investing opportunities, and the precious metals markets. We also cover hedges, derivatives, and obscura. And it bears mention that most of these items are from the “tangibles heavy” contrarian perspective of JWR. (SurvivalBlog’s Founder and Senior Editor.) Today’s focus is on investing in M1 Garand rifles. (See the Tangibles Investing section, near the end of this column.)
Just to give some background on my repackaging abilities: I have an older FoodSaver with all attachments, food grade storage buckets (given free at some places, soak in a vinegar solution for a few days to get rid of smells like icing, etc.), plus a supply of Mylar bags and oxy absorbers.
Thanks! You are very welcome, Bruce. If you would like to read a basic list which I wrote up shortly after Hurricane Sandy zapped the East Coast, please check it out here: //wudndux.blogspot.com/2012/11/disaster-preparation-basics.html
A recreational day hike could easily turn into a survival situation causing you to camp overnight in the wilderness. Take the wrong turn on the trail or forget to orient your map to the terrain and you might be walking the opposite direction in which you thought. It is important to always carry a shelter, fire striker or matches and something to carry water in, no matter how short a trip you have planned. BUDK has a large selection of everything you need for camping and survival needs!
This is the birthday of Émile François Zola, a novelist and essayist. He is most often remembered as the author of “J’accuse” (I Accuse!), his lengthy open letter to president Félix Faure, which accused the French government of anti-semitism.
Surviving in a post apocalypse? Lost in the backwoods? Survivalists, poor families, native tribes, and mountain men from past decades experienced the ease of bagging critters that you can sometimes catch right in your own backyard and have over a fire in no time. Here are 10 tasty critters in no particular order …
To: Shep / Damn thief got into my cabin, nearly got my stash. I’m off to track that bastard down. ‘Meanwhile’see what you can do with the lock. I’ll be damned if this is going to happen again. – Hardcastle
Precious metals have been moneys since before Jesus. That deserves some respect. The other part about these precious metals is that their value increases over time. Its very important that you take into consideration that …
I have 6 cats and go through a LOT of cat litter. And I was wondering if I could use the 20# jugs for water. I wouldn’t want to drink it, but the water could be used for a lot of other things. These are HDPE 2 jugs. I just hate throwing them in the garbage…
Prepping is getting more mainstream today and there is a lot of information out there now about getting ready for an emergency or in case SHTF, but if you’re new to being a prepper, what should you do first? You need to know how to start prepping. If you’re one of my regular readers, you may be a bit more advanced when it comes to prepping because my typical articles have been for more thorough research. It’s time I start balancing things and have some articles that have a bit more reach and are more useful to the 99% of people out there looking to prepare their families for emergencies or in case SHTF or even prepping for doomsday.
I am not an expert gardener by any means and I don’t claim to be either. I have only really been growing my food for a little over 3 years and for two of those years I failed miserably. The first year I planted my seeds way too early. They grew like they should but …
What normal people do is go on with their lives and ignore what will happen. It is not a matter of IF but of WHEN. And WHEN it happens, they go batshit crazy and freak out and their whole world collapses. They regard preppers as crazy people, but yet when emergency strikes come knocking on their doors, even using violence to steal what they built up in their cleverness.
For someone who is on the fence about prepping, wouldn’t you rather have storage and not need it than no storage and need it? I think of this as another insurance policy. I keep in mind the risks I face if I don’t have this prepping storage.
I’m Gaye, just an ordinary gal trying to make sense of our changing world. I am addicted to prepping, DIY projects, adult coloring books, and ballroom dancing. I live what I call a strategic life and believe you should too. Everyone needs to prepare for the worst and live for the best. Won’t you join me?
It can easily be said that America is absolutely smitten with the AR-15 platform. Regardless of what a whiney reporter or academic elitist tells you, these weapons are not monsters they claim them to be. They are inanimate objects sitting in millions of homes throughout America not bothering anyone. Yet, if you are one of […]
People who are in shape statistically survive emergency situations more often. There are many reasons for this but think about it; if you’re in shape, you won’t require as many medicines, you’ll be able to walk farther with more weight, and you’ll better be able to defend yourself. Start working out, eating right and getting enough sleep. It’s a change that you should be doing even if you’re not new to prepping but could end up being the one thing that saves your life. The INSANITY workout is one that a lot of Soldiers I know are using and they love it. It’s not an easy workout plan, but if losing weight and getting in shape were easy, everyone would be doing it.
What are the best items to stock up on now that you can easily trade or sell following a collapse of government and the dollar? Services and skills you can learn now before chaos erupts and the banks shut down.
Again, this move is just another incremental step for the gun grabbers. Even though bumpfire stocks are impractical for most self-defense shooting, they still deserve Second Amendment protection, on principle. If we don’t loudly speak up in opposition, then the gun grabbers will smell blood in the water and they will quickly come after more! (For example: binary triggers, 3-gun match triggers, magazines over 10 round capacity, and entire classes of firearms–perhaps even all semi-autos that can accept detachable magazines.)
