Use bullets or dynamite (you can find some nearby if you don’t have any) to destroy the rubble blocking the flow of water. This will fill the basin below you and allow you to swim across to the other side. If you haven’t done so already, kill the cultist on the opposite ledge, then proceed through the tunnel to locate the stash.

Recently I asked a friend if he thought he was prepared for a disaster scenario, something like a severe weather event or a human-caused catastrophe. He said: “Sure I am. I have a week or so worth of non-perishable food in the pantry and my AR-15 in case things get nasty.” His response got me …
Now that you have been bit by the prepping bug, your life has undoubtedly changed. Trips to the grocery store now include searching out bargains on dry goods and canned goods so that you can purchase one for now and one for later. Family outings now focus not only on having a good time, but on learning how to cope in the outdoors and making do without all of the creature comforts that come with a roof over your head.
This may sound like a strange thing to worry about but it may become the biggest mistake you make when a SHTF even really happens. If you don’t watch what you say and do, you could be planning to support 4 people and end up with 12 mouths to feed in an emergency. It would be better to know now that you have to plan for 12 (and hopefully get them on board to help themselves now) or keep the other 8 in the dark about what you’re doing. This is a good time to figure out what you’re going to do with your pets.
During Hurricane Katrina, the Federal Government finally got organized enough to set up a refugee camp at the Superdome. It quickly became a dangerous, even deadly, place to be and the government insisted – and in some cases forced – that you be there. There are people who literally “escaped from the Superdome”.
Have you taken the time to consider just what makes the best survival foods for an emergency? If you only had two survival foods on hand to last you two weeks in the event of a major emergency, what would they be?
Girlfriend and I grow most of the vegetables we eat and have been canning for years now, so we have those skills down pat. Even when we make soups and chili we make 20 quarts worth to put up. What else should we be doing to shore up our food stocks and other essentials? We also save seeds. Thanks to all.
One of the goals of the APN is to help teach those who are acting through fear regarding 2012 issues to broaden their view and adopt a Self Reliant lifestyle versus stashing a bunch of stuff in case the Mayans were right.
Any situation for which a year’s worth of food is insufficient would be an apocalypse, and that requires a whole different level of prep which very few are interested in taking on. It’s just too low on the probability scale. Knowing you can get by comfortably, with good, familiar food for two to six weeks is very reassuring, though.
Recommending hatchets is usually recommended by those who have never had to use one in the field. A machette is a much more useful tool. Anything you can do with a hatchet you can do with a machette. Get a good one. Only buy Ontario brand machettes. Mine is now 40 years old. Served me in 21 years of the military. Through a tour of duty with the Peace Corps in Africa. Twenty years of work as a civil engineering technician. Still used weekly on my 5 acres of rural land. The machette has a much longer reach for use as a personal weapon. Because it is an extension of the arm the end of a moving machette has much more force to it than a hatchet. Easier to sharpen.
The concept of preparing a bug out bag is to have a backpack ready to go at all times that is both accessible and transportable. You need to be able to simply pick up the bag and head out without fear of lacking any necessities. A bug out bag is equipped with the latest gadgets and tools coupled with food and possible shelter so that you can survive out in the wilderness where things are scarce. The urban bug out bag will help you survive the period until you can find the right kind of friendly civilization or appropriate help. If you are living in a city, you need to tailor you bag for your urban environment and have the right kind of accessories and be customized accordingly.
There are two kinds of preppers: those who plan to run for the hills and those who hope to stay put for as long as possible. If you are the latter kind, you’ve undoubtedly outfitted your home with every conceivable advantage, from security windows and doors to months-worth of shelf-safe foods. However, if you haven’t […]
My husband and I have just started prepping and I can’t read enough information on what we should be doing to prepare. Our biggest questions seem to be about where to find a safe place to go. We live in Ohio right now but plan on moving to Tennessee (Cumberland area) in 3 years. I’ve read a little about the area but I’m not really convinced this is a safe area to stay. Anyone’s thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Continue up the cliff face and pass by what looks like a raided campsite, then jump and grapple up to the next ledge ahead of you. Continue along the given path and you’ll pass under an overhang that’s clearly been used as a feeding spot.
I consider myself to be an ordinary citizen, who again like you, is just trying to get by in these uncertain and chaotic times. And as trite as it sounds, I hope that what I learn, what I do and what I share will make the road to self-reliance just a bit easier for the next person.
There’s no way to get in on the ground level, so we’ll have to try to find a way in through that skylight Ben mentioned. Thankfully, another note on the side door gives us a hint at how we can accomplish that.
You’ll find next to the lock box and campsite a form with the information of the salvage contract – it seems there’s a small Cessna aircraft sunk in the bay, the key to a lock box still inside or nearby the wreckage.
You might consider other possibilities such as the social and economic dislocations which would accompany a serious bout of inflation, and the likelihood of seriously counterproductive government responses such as wage and price controls. Serious inflation rewards those with large fixed-rate loans like mortgages— so long as you can keep making the mortgage payments. If you have a big mortgage and can’t make the payments you are in big trouble. There is plenty of advice out there for inflationary times, and I suggest that if you are concerned, read several opinions. Deflation may also be a significant possibility. Don’t rely on the single source.
The point is, have one overall plan that you can grab that will reference everything. This emergency plan should also list not only what you’ve prepared but what you still need to look into or get. Then you need to find the discipline to train and practice your plans until they’re drilled into your family’s heads. Repetition is the key. Rehearse anything that relates to your plan, even if you can’t always do the whole thing. Give assignments to each member in your party to study and teach to the rest.
Thank you SO MUCH for compiling this. I cannot tell you how stressed I have made myself as a relative “newbie” prepper. I’m someone who wanted to get it ALL done right away, which I know is impossible, but still. I’ve done bits and pieces from all 12 months (on your list/posts) at this point, based on what my biggest concerns are. Now I can step back, breathe, and carefully go through the remaining logical steps w/o making myself crazy or wasting money.
