With so many threats facing the world, preppers are becoming more common place. So, who’s still not prepping? Steps to take today to be prepared for a national collapse resulting from a catastrophic disaster or mysterious, unexpected event.
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.
Tanner, got orders from Jacob to remove Elliot and his family from their house. They’ve been a thorn in our ass for far too long. Make sure you check their bunker, they could be hiding in there. Use whatever means necessary. – Billy You can also hear chatter over the radio letting you know that reinforcements will be arriving soon.
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.
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.
I wish I could pat all your commenters on the back too. Some of their suggestions and ideas are just incredible! I find I learn just as much from the comments on some survival blogs than I do from the actual articles sometimes….and this is no exception.

There are a lot of different things you can put on your bug out bag list and there’s not really one list of contents that you should follow. Each item in your kit will depend on your skill set and what you’re trying to prepare for. It’ll also change depending on your region, the season […]
I can’t believe it! I heard it! A genuine sasquatch call! I’m sure it’s from a cave I’ve seen on the nearby cliffs. I’ve got a feeling that today is going to be the day that I come face to face with the squelch itself!
I would suggest reflecting on where you think you should be and if you think your level of preparedness is in comparison. I’m pretty sure I’m going to hear from people on how we left out something critical to doomsday prepping. There is always more to do in someone’s mind but I believe that doomsday prepping is an art, not a science.

How To Test Your Bug Out Bag For SHTF Testing Your Bug Out Bag Gear Is Vital To Ensuring You Are Prepared To Sustain Your Own Survival Should A Disaster Strike. Here’s How To Plan It Now. Mar 21, 2018 | 0 Comments
The ATF recently published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on bumpfire stocks, redefining them as “machineguns.” This NPRM is worse than I had anticipated This is in part because the new rule has no Grandfather Clause. By the ATF’s own estimates there are more than 350,000 American bumpfire stocks (worth about $96 million) already in circulation. The proposed rule would declare these all contraband unregistered machineguns, with no compensation to their owners, and no method provided to pay the $200 tax to register them. (Because of the FOPA Hughes Amendment machinegun freeze of 1986.) Therefore, owners would be required to: a.) destroy them, or b.) permanently disable them, or c.) surrender them for destruction. If put into force, this would clearly be either an “illegal exaction” or an unconstitutional “taking”. This ex post facto law would fly in the face of many decades of Federal rulemaking and Federal jurisprudence, which until now has almost uniformly included grandfather clauses whenever there are bans enacted.
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. …
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.
A bug out bag is critical but what do you put in it? When considering disaster preparedness, keep in mind that what survival gear and emergency supplies you add to your bug out bag and then pack for your survival kit can mean the difference between life and death, or at least affect your level of comfort if SHTF and you had to get outta dodge. Read this article to find out what you should consider putting in your bug out bag.
I eat out of my stash, there is only hubby and i, so sometimes food need to be eaten or they go to waste after a year or two. i shop at discount stores and off the clearance shelves. so i end up with a lot of food for a smaller amount of money. i dont buy anything name brand, unless i have a coupon or there is a deal to make it cheaper. i coupon big time too. i have food in several spots in my home. i am looking into making a fake wall to store food into as well. so if we get raided, they wont get all of the supplies. i reuse all jars for making jar meals, so we can more or less stay make our food last longer. i also reuse kitty litter jugs for toilet and bathing water, as well as for making my own laundry soap, and i reuse my laundry jugs and make my own fabric softener for over a year now. i still use Oxi Clean instead of bleach for my whites and uniforms. Dollar Tree sells a spray called Totally Awesome for laundry, that takes the place of Shout, it works better and there is more of it for $1. Happy Stashing!
In such times where “rights” are increasingly debated and used as clubs against opposing tribes and viewpoints, I must remind myself that “rights” are a fiction. Regardless of how universal they are touted, rights have no meaning outside of the society that has granted them and that has the means and will to provide and enforce them.

It would likely be a very short-sighted plan for just getting through a few days. While this is not doomsday prepping as defined by most preppers, it is a start. Hopefully, these folks will read up on what is truly need for surviving disaster.
Blocklite Ultra Bright 9V LED Flashlight: I now own six of these little gems. There is a similar flashlight called the Pak-Lite (which is more expensive) but it does not have a high-low switch like this one. Less than $10. These little flashlights just go and go, plus, they make good use of those re-purposed 9V alkaline batteries that you have recharged with your Maximal Power FC999 Universal Battery Charger.
I would rather have my trusty shotgun as opposed to a baseball bat and harsh language if there were a bunch of people trying to knock down my door any day. So, with that in mind, below are my list of the top 5 firearms you need to get your hands on now.
Essentially, get the basics such as medical and survival equipment, some backup communications, spare cash, change of clothes, and copies of documents.

Stasi (2016). “This definitive documentary reveals the calculated cruelty and brutal repression by the notorious East German secret police, the Stasi. Headed by the sinister Erich Mielke, the Stasi kept the population under constant surveillance. Tapping phones, reading mail, and installing informers, they created a culture of fear and suspicion.” This documentary is available for free download to Amazon Prime members. Also available on DVD.
Head down the pier to the small shed – you’ll find another note from a cultist explaining that he’s trying to shoot the lock from across the reservoir. Head up onto the roof of the shack and use whatever your preferred long-range weapon is to take him out.

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!
