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.
Perhaps not readily evident is that as I write and as I research, I am standing side by side with you during this prepping journey. Like you, I continually strive to expand my knowledge and increase my survival skills. For us, our common goal is to learn to depend on ourselves not others for our basic well-being – no matter what.
Civil emergencies and post collapse crime will mean break-ins, robberies, hostage taking, rapes and murders. Here are several DIY home security safeguards and tips to have in place before a true civil emergency.

For those of you that live in the southern states, there isn’t much of a difference between summer and winter. For those of us a little further north, summertime means we can get outside, and get back … [Continue…]
This compass has it all and is very acurate compared with my other compasses I have in my boat and truck. The accessories tucked away within are really cool too. Very compact and a great addition to my survival gear kit.
Practical Preppers has been named as one of the best 250 Prepper websites on happytosurvive.com. http://www.happytosurvive.com/homesteading/best-250-prepper-websites-with-the-top-prepping-resources/…
Waiting until the last minute, or waiting until a disaster strikes is probably the stupidest thing you can do. Depending on the severity of the disaster it could get you and the ones you love killed… […]
After getting over the roped crate, climb up on the stack to your right and break through the wall. Move and drop slowly into the next room to avoid disturbing the bees then head into the stairwell at the base of the elevator.
Keep in mind sanitary napkins, as they have multiple uses other than intended, ie: wound dressings, wet and use as a heat relief head dressing, etc etc. When shopping for your survival items always ask yourself “What ELSE could I use this for in a SHTF scenario.” There are numerous sites that are just loaded with info, but I LIKE Back Door Survival. Be careful of so called Survival sites/blogs that demand a joining fee. Many of them are nothing but rip offs. For example there is one site that continually advertises FREE stuff. All you have to pay for is the shipping cost. But with a little research you can find the exact same items for sale at a cost (including shipping, if any) for a lot less. Example: One site was advertising handcuff keys for free, just pay shipping of $4.95. I found the exact same keys for sale on Amazon for 0.97 with NO shipping costs. Money is hard to come by so spend it wisely! 😉
As predicted, the violence in South Africa is ratcheting up. A police station was torched in Zwelihle and the police are struggling to maintain order. President Cyril Ramaphosa is holding firm on his drive to expropriate land from whites without compensation. It should be noted that it is not the disafected whites that are driving the violence, but the blacks who are attempting to engage in a violent land invasion. President Ramaphosa promised this wouldn’t happen, but like usual, libtards are out of touch with reality. Thanks to S.M for the links.
Preppers are “Ready for Anything”. We don’t prepare for just one thing as some TV shows would have you believe. The Prepper philosophy dictates that you prepare for anything that might come your way. As such, one of your first steps is an assessment of your situation. What kind of things happen in your region? If you live in Louisiana, you have a high chance of having (another) hurricane hit you. If you’re in Maine, you have a very high chance of winter ice storms that knock power out. If you live in California, you have a high chance of an earthquake. This site can show you a lot about regional hazards while this site will show you charts of where it’s “safer” to live.
Swim through the flooded tunnels until you find the entry hatch into the bunker. Climb up and out of the water to collect your rewards – but be careful of the snake that’s trapped itself down here as well.
They have a plan for any SHTF scenario and believe they will be able to adapt to the unexpected. While the previous group prepares for a disaster with one plan, these folks have multiple plans and backups to those to assure their survival.
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.
Concerns during this time were primarily about food, power and fuel because computers controlled all the ordering, shipping and delivery of food and gas across the country as well as the power grid. The time leading up to the turn of the century saw a huge amount of “mainstream” people rushing out to purchase a years supply of food, fuel and generators.
the thing about diva cup, there is a water factor. it creates more of a mess that needs water to cleanup, there is no applicator. Tampons can also be used for a variety of emergency use, not just for female use. i find them at Dollar General, a large multi pack for $3 on Clearance. they are also good for First Aid, a water filter, and other uses. Though the compost toilet is an excellent idea.

Don’t waste your money on emergency bags, buy the individual components and make a BETTER kit yourself. These kits are made to be 1 use only and throw away, and throw it away you will… your money…
Emergency preparation is your journey and should be unique to your circumstances, your family, your geographical location and your financial resources. Yes, it can be a chore. But as I have said before, it should be a chore with a happy ending.
You have to check your budgeting. Know your prices. I keep a shorthand list in my phone of prices from Sam’s on commonly bought items. The Price per Unit is coded on the price label. $8 for 10 cans of Starkist tuna is a good deal when the same cans run $1/per at the grocery store, but not so much if you can get a better price with BOGO, coupons, or the store brand for $0.50/per.

12 Months of Prepping provides enough of the basics to get you by for a short period with the end result being that you will be more prepared than 90% of your neighbors. It is not designed to prepare you for XX number of days since there are way too many variables involved to do that in a short article such as this one.
I also recommend the Mobile Washer. This is hand operated washing machine. Like a plunger, it uses a technique of pushing and pulling the water through clothes to clean them well without wearing them out. It uses a minimum of water and less soap due to the agitation motion. Use in a bucket (5-gallon suggested), sink or tub. The best part is the price – only $14.95.
If SHTF or you have a house fire or whatever, your family members may need to reach someone. Does everyone in your family have the phone numbers, full names, addresses and directions to the home and office of all your other family members and people you trust? Do you have all the police, fire and hospital numbers and addresses listed? Make a very thorough list and make sure everyone has a copy of it. This list should go into your overall emergency plan.
Once you reach the other side, move around the side of the pool and jump to the fallen column that rises out of the center, then swing across to the platform on the other side and zipline across the remainder of the pool to reach (relative) safety.
For basic Preparedness, we’re going to discuss the essential items you need to sustain life. As you grow in your preparedness knowledge and understanding, you will find many, many other areas you need to be fully Prepped.
This is actually true of many Preppers but is also a generalization – there are liberals and atheists among us and they are welcome. The Prepper mindset is focused on Self-Reliance and Personal Responsibility, which also happens to lead right into a strong belief in the Constitution and that we need less, not more, government. Christianity also promotes Self-Reliance and Personal Responsibility. So, while the a majority of Preppers may be Christian and strong proponents of Constitutional Government – it is certainly not exclusive to that belief set.
SurvivalBlog readers may not be aware that the same family that owns Naturally Cozy (one of our long time writing contest prize donors) also operates North Idaho Heat, in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. They are now the exclusive dealer for the 509 Optimum stove in north Idaho. This model looks a lot like a like a wood stove, but it has more in common with a pellet stove. What makes it truly different is that it only burns compressed logs – which are also made in northern Idaho.
We all know our basic cost of living is increasing. Despite the increase and the knowledge that at some point, we are going to be stuck at home with no way to get to the grocery store, we keep spending. We just assume tomorrow will take care of itself, right?
