But the more I research about preppers and prepping (I had to cause I have a school project about it), I realize I am actually not so different from them (in terms of mindset, not so much action. Because I can’t do anything except learn skills and mentally prepare). Even my most open minded classmates regard to them as nutters, and that was the focus of the project for most of my peers, focus on how crazy preppers are, how delusional or mental, but the fact is… as how I see it… preppers aren’t delusional, they are REALISTIC and PRACTICAL!
Choosing a weapon, and accessories is always going to be dependent on what they are being used for. For instance, you might be looking for an easy to use pistol for home protection, or the best red dot sight, to help make hunting trips more successful. It’s no different with survivalism; you need to make […]
Fishing has been a huge part of my life since as long as I can remember. I spent most of my life playing catch and release. That is just how it went. I learned a valuable skill that I enjoy till this day. This article offers some ways to catch fish without a rod and reel. …
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.
The APN’s official position is that 2012 is just one potential issue we are preparing for but that it is not more important or more of a focus than a super volcano, massive earthquake, a bread winner being incapacitated or complete economic collapse.  The APN philosophy on Preparedness is simply to adapt your life to be more self-reliant so that you are able to sustain your family through any calamity and come out on the other side safely.
First prize goes to J.M. for “Perspectives on Patrolling-Part 1”, “Part 2”, “Part 3”, “Part 4”, and “Part 5”, published on March 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, and 17th, 2018. He will receive the following prizes:
Reading the comments reminded me of Y2K. I was a part of a small group (6) of women who got together every other week to discuss our prepping status and share hints and tips. One of the ladies was so into it that even 13 years later, she is still working through a good portion of her storage. This is when I really explored food dehydration as well as keeping at least 2 weeks of food on the shelf. I have always been a camper so have shelter, fire/warmth. Since I am single, all of my camping gear is with that in mind. I have only a 1 burner camp stove but have the means to cook over an open fire as well as bake in a Dutch oven. I have been actively prepping for the last year with long term storage. i did break into the brownies – needed some chocolate really bad. It is wonderful.
Since its launch in late 2008, the APN has seen strong growth through its first couple years.  In late 2011, an effort was launched to restructure much of the APN to help appeal and attract a broader audience, specifically those who were just finding out about and getting into Prepping.  Since the start of that effort, the APN has recognized a significant spike in growth that is expected to increase dramatically through ongoing execution of the restructure.
Shotguns are renowned for stopping power. A 12 gauge shotgun has a lot of recoil, but did you know that a 20 gauge shotgun or even a teen-size shotgun can be just as effective, without the recoil? Shotguns for home defense.
I apologize to the members of our community that the APN forum is currently down until further notice. Due to both the outdated forum database and server we still have been unable to implement much needed updates to keep the forum secure and stable. Please be patient while we work to resolve the issues. We […]
There are lots of possible scenarios for disaster, but many are low probability events. It is easy to get caught up in all of them and let the possibilities take over one’s life. Prepping for a fairly generic disaster is actually pretty straightforward, involving providing water, food, the means to cook it, cash, first aid supplies, means of getting out of town if sheltering in place doesn’t work, defense, and so forth. if you enjoy camping a couple times a year (what I refer to as heavy camping I.e. driving to a prepared site with your tent and cooking gear etc. rather than backpacking) you will already have a lot of the gear needed and know how to use it. Add the canned and dried food you usually eat, sufficient for a week or a couple months or whatever period you think appropriate, and you will be in better shape than 95% of your neighbors.
Cause let’s face it, nothing lasts forever, no system, no gouvernment, no civilization, there is ALWAYS a pattern of rise, bloom, and downfall. I believe we have started the ‘downfall’ part of the cycle. No one knows how long it will take, but I have an eery feeling I will still experience it (I’m 20 now, so still many years ahead of me). Pollution, economic system, politics, it is all slowly spiraling out of control.
Those in the military and in law enforcement, who are looking for a knife that will never let them down, look to ZT knives to serve their needs. We are talking about hard-use knives that you can’t afford to have fail you; this pretty much sums up Zero Tolerance knives. However, savvy civilian knife users are also many of the customers that ZT serves.
My bunker’s compromised, some asshat drove a fucking dredge into it. I tried to get it loose, but every time I touch the controls it just digs a deeper hole. ‘Last’thing I need is a bunch of veggies swimming in to steal my shit.
Love the site (got my vote!). I visit here, Survival Mom, Mom with a Prep, and several others frequently. This post is probably a little long, but these are some of my experiences from beginning to prep until now. I’ve had to balance everything from budget to creative storage when I was a single mom with 1 son in a cramped 1-2 bedroom apt or house with zero storage space to repeating the process married with 2 boys. Luckily, I now have a garage to accommodate the extra storage boxes, pails, containers, etc…
I predict that bumpfire stocks will not be the sole sacrificial lambs in this whole media-driven charade. This will be a proverbial Slippery Slope. There will be more–many more–types of firearms and firearms parts they’ll come after. The socialist-statist-collectivists will not stop. They won’t slow down their campaign against the Second Amendment until they feel they have thoroughly disarmed us. That is how they operate: They talk “compromise” and “common sense legislation”, but what they really want is a docile, neutered populace that has no means to resist their plans for womb-to-tomb domination under total government.
In addition to survival skills, we look into the reasons, natural and sometimes supernatural, that place this nation and world on edge. Huge research library included. We teach, you learn; you teach, we learn.

Open the hatch next to the shed and climb down the ladder into the water below. Swim into the bunker and collect the keycard off the desk at the far end, then return to the surface and open the door to the shed.

A Prepper takes steps to mitigate the long lasting effect of a severe impact on their world.  They do this through stocking items that are critical for their continued well-being – called Standard of Living Insurance.  The most notable and important of these items are Food, Water, and Shelter.  An established Prepper will have large amounts of food stored, will have water filters and access to water established and will have taken steps to create or maintain the livability of their shelter, or home.
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.

    You also need to decide under what circumstances you’ll be activating different parts of your plan such as bugging out or locking the place down etc. If SHTF, you may not be able to contact your family members. It would help if there is an understanding of what to do in case of different scenarios.

    Watch for sales and items of the day. Compare prices on large item purchases. The beauty of being a prepper today is that almost every store will price match to remain competitive. REI, Walmart, Target, Bass Pro, Amazon and any other stores that sells outdoor equipment are good places to watch for deals and clearance, especially during winter when they need to get rid of seasonal camping merchandise. I picked up a $100, 3 room family tent on clearance at Target for >$40 a few years back. REI in our area does a yearly clean out on leftover merchandise, returns, and slightly damaged gear. A good example: I picked up a pair of toddler kivas for my youngest for >$10 and only one of the shoes was damaged -broken tightening clasp. Easily fixed – cut the strap, tied a knot, and saved over $40.
    Follow the trail and jump across the rocky outcropping amid the falls and use your grapple to climb up the other side of the cliff. Reverse direction and jump back across, then wind upwards until you can leap to the ledge just below the bridge.

  2. Use the zipline to cross the water and jump onto the sniper platform from the roof you land on and pick up the dead sniper’s scoped rifle (if you don’t already have a longarm yourself). Take careful aim at the yellow lock visible through the open window and make that maybe-not-one-in-a-million shot.

    Watch “The Walking Dead” and “The Day After.” The greatest threat will be “normal” citizens who will respond to the Reptilian Portion of their brain, and ethics are out the window. It will be kill or be killed. You’d better be prepared to do things; like kill women and maybe even children, if things get really bad. It’s not going to be “fun camping trip.”
    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.

    Costco is a great place to start prepping from. as far as coupons, they have their own and I use them to buy just about all my paper goods and toiletries. We also buy dry beans and rice which we put in mylar sealed bags (add a 2000cc oxygen absorber) into a 5 or 6 gallon bucket,with gamma seal lid or regular lid which you can buy at home depot or lowes and are very cheap. I prefer gamma seal lids as you can reseal the mylar bags and the gamma seal also helps keep out oxygen and pests. quite often during the summer home depot has charcoal on sale. we buy several bags and store them in buckets .

    This is one of my favorite ways to use the last of the fall apples once spring comes. You know, these are the ones that have been in storage long enough to be a little too spongy to eat plain but still too good to feed to the critters.

    Here is SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt. This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. We also mention companies of interest to preppers that are located in the region. The emphasis this week is on the Rajneesh Movement of the 1980s, headquartered near Antelope, Oregon.

    Hi leal, never thought about Noah that way. I started learning this in my 20s after awakening from a dream about Joseph’s interpretation for the Pharaoh. Having come from country folk, it didn’t seem that much of a stretch to begin my storage. Now, like you, I’m single again, so most of my store are for singles. AND cocoa powder and cacao beans are part of my stores. 😉
    Wifey: We’re not gonna drain the bunker in time. I packed up the car with supplies, we’ll have to run before the cult gets here. We’ll have to leave whatever’s down there. Doubt the Peggies can hold their breath long enough to get their hands on the key to the shed – Hubby
    Terrorist attacks including the 911 plane attacks, bombings in London, Madrid, Bali and many other places, led to a strong online interest in discussing personal readiness and self reliance.  Fueled by United States disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and Ike and international disasters including earthquakes and tsunamis in Indonesia, Chile, Japan and elsewhere, the Prepper Movement gained a lot of momentum without having a particular date in mind (unlike Y2K) which led to many people recognizing a need to change their lives to be more prepared and self reliant.

  5. One of the basic prepping tenants is stockpiling easy-to-store foods that are readily accessible in case of an emergency or crisis. Yet, it goes without saying that while a fresh deli sandwich might sound great, some foods store easier and for longer than others. Today, let’s take a look at some foods that make excellent hoarding basics and can fill you up in a hurry.

    This is something we hear a lot. It is something that the media frequently attempts to portray us as. Preppers are no more crazy than those wacky people who have home owners insurance. Seriously, why do people have home owners insurance? It’s so that if something catastrophic happens to your house you can get money to buy a new one – and not be homeless. Prepping is basically the same thing – we educate ourselves and purchase items that will be essential to continue our way of life in a catastrophic event, creating a Standard of Living Insurance for ourselves.  Preppers are those who agree with the Federal Government and subscribe to what FEMA has indicated that every citizen should be doing to be prepared.  For the media to call us “nutjobs” or “fringe”is for them to ignore the position of the Federal Government towards citizen responsibility.

    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?
    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.)

    I am looking to relocate with the desire for isolation. I would like a region lacking temperature extremes and with more conservative political ideology. I’m currently in Texas and wish a cooler climate but not the other end of the spectrum like Alaska. Married with 8 kids, so a place that can sustain. Fertile soil a must! Do you have any areas in mind, that I can research?
