You’ll find the note on a crate, down the hill from the mouth of the cave. It reads: There’s always a squad of cultists taking wolves from Howling Cave. They’ve got a lot of good gear in there. I think someone oughtta get the jump on ‘em and steal it.
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.
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…
When you reach the final buoy you’ll find the sunken fuselage of the plane along with its unfortunate pilot – the key to the lockbox sits nearby. Grab it, swim back to shore and open your treasure chest.
What a great list. I just wanted to make a couple suggestions. Instead of having a lot of space go to feminine products just switch to a diva cup – or similar item. It is reused for 10 years so you don’t need to worry about running out. Also for human waste consider a vermacomposting/humanure toilet. There are lots of instructions online about how to build it, and with a working compost pile you can start/stop using it at any time.

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. …
Pick yourself up off the floor and climb onto the crate ahead of you with the blue paracord on it – there is a safe ahead of where you land, if you have explosives or either the Locksmith or Repair Torch perks, though you’ll need to bash the hive blocking your path to get it.
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.
What really doesn’t make any sense to Preppers is people who refuse to do anything about their personal well-being and safety. Preppers do not understand Fathers who are unwilling to take extra steps to make sure they are able to take care of their children when something bad happens. In fact, we consider it down-right irresponsible to be completely unprepared to feed your children and provide them with water and shelter.
However, doomsday prepping can certainly mean different things to different people. Some feel that anything less than an fully armed underground bunker filled with 3 years of food and water is a waste of time. Others feel that having supplies for 3 or 4 days is sufficient enough doomsday prepping.
Climb over the ramp and move through the door across from you. Turn left and climb onto the crates to drop down on the other side of the stack to clamber under the low shelf. Use caution: a very angry wolverine has managed to become trapped down here.

Someone may have mentioned this, so forgive me if it’s redundant. Might want to consider a ham radio license and having a couple of charged handhelds in working order. I know when Colorado flooded a couple of months ago, radio operators were a lifeline for rescuers when roads were washed out. Just a suggestion!
Russ, there’s something rotting up there on the roof, I saw one of ‘them’eagles perched on the nearby radio tower with something in its claws the other day. Pretty sure it glided over and dropped that sucker and now it’s baking up there in the sun. You’re going to have to find some way up there and clean it up. – Ben
The title reads like some sort of terrible infomercial but it seems these homesteaders are onto something. They have found an incredible veggie that you most likely never heard of that really produces. Its one of those rare breeds that doesn’t have issues with pests, doesn’t have issues with disease or mold and produces at …
Every family should have at least one Tote-able Toilet. I have priced purchasing the bucket and toilet seat lid separately and found that it was more economical to pick up this kit. I have filled my portable potty with sanitation supplies plus, of course, plenty of TP.
Morakniv Craftline Q Allround Fixed Blade Utility Knife: Also known as the Mora 511, this is now my favorite knife. It is made of Swedish steel and is super sharp. I paid $12 for this knife last week and today it is $8.95 so I ordered another one. It was worth $12 and of course is a steal at $8.95!
It seems that human history evolves in continuous cycles of birth, growth, decay and destruction. And the seed of the next society emerges from the ashes of the last. As western civilization dives deeper into the cycle of decay, the mechanisms of propaganda are in full force, as competing tribes increasingly and blatantly use emotional manipulation to drive the populace in the direction they want. As the volume and vitriol rises, polarization increases until there is no longer a center, and even the possibility of dialog and debate is inconceivable.
I live in Florida with lots of Hurricane season, Tornado, Flood, Ice Storm, Blizzard, Tsunami, Earthquake, Zombie Apocalypse. here is one people arent familiar with, a trucker strike. if they dont run the trucks, there will be no food delivered and the grocery store shelves will go bare. how serious is this? hubby bought me a greenhouse so we could start growing our own food. when the Obamacare deal goes through, many people will be looking for food when they lose many hours and pay. With a truckers strike and empty grocery store shelves, thats not a good combination. when the shelves sent bare during the hurricanes, there were riots at Walmart over water and baby formula.
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.
Thank you for writing this. We have been preppers for over 13 years. Some people made fun of us when we first moved out to the country home we have when they found out. Then we all got snowed in for 2 weeks. No power, no nuthing. After only 2 days people started to flock to our door. I will NEVER tell another soul that I have saplies ever again. It turned into a mad house. Thankfuly, most of them have started to prep now to. They learned from us that it is better to have your own.
Using the ledges and climbable platforms, carefully make your way up the tower to find the stash at the top. You can burn the hives to avoid taking damage if you want to destroy them, but this runs the risk of setting the building – and yourself – on fire.
